About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-12)

We fell in love with this mountain cottage the first time we saw it. There is a wrap around porch with rocking chairs, where you can rock and enjoy the wooded view. We would love to share it with you.

It is 10 acre within a quiet, safe, gated community. The Master Bedroom and Full Bath are on the first floor. There are two bedrooms and full bath are upstairs.

All rooms including the front porch have ceiling fans (except baths & kitchen). You may not need to use the ceiling fans as there is always a wonderful breeze blowing across the mountains. The home has central heat and air conditioning.

On the first floor is the Master Bedroom with a New Queen size bed, closet and dresser. The first bedroom upstairs has a King Size bed using a day/trundle bed with a Serta 4-inch memory foam mattress topper and contour pillows for extra comfort. There is also sofa that opens into a twin bed a foam mattress is supplied for it. This bedroom also has dresser and a TV with DVD/VCR player. The other upstairs Bedroom has two double beds and a bunk bed.

There is a new infant crib and a twin bed guard for toddlers. All beds have mattress and pillow covers, linens, blankets and quilts. An extra large sleeping bag is also available. This allows for spacious room, yet numerous sleeping arrangements.

The dining room table seats eight, and opens to seat 16. There are over 16 place settings of dishes and silverware. For children there are plastic dishes and bowls, as well as a highchair and booster seat.

In the living room there is a wood burning fireplace, comfortable furniture, TV, Radio, DVD/VCR & CD players. DVD/VCR library, games, puzzles, books, cards; something for everyone: TV Converter box and Unidirectional antenna. Phone with limited service; no long distance calls You May use a calling card. A new cell tower was built in the area the summer of 2008 allowing Verizon Cell and Internet service outside and inside the cottage.

Both the Dining Room and Living Room have skylights.

3 Large Pillows and matching Fleece 4x6 covers are handy to sit on the floor or wrap up to sit outside.

The kitchen is well equipped with a refrigerator (with ice maker), stove & pans, microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, blender, and bread maker. There is a garbage disposal but no dishwasher. You will find plenty of cooking utensils. Three feet of the kitchen counter has been lowered to accommodate the handicapped. The stove is a flat top, easy to use, with controls on the back, out of the reach of small children.

The laundry area has a washer and dryer. There is an ironing board and iron. The bathroom has plush, Biltmore towels, soap, shampoo, lotion, and hair dryer.

Most all doors on the first floor are wide and have lever handles. The furniture is arranged to accommodate a wheelchair bound person.

The house is 1350 square feet. The wide porch on three sides of the house is roomy and relaxing with plenty of seating. A swing and hammock are on the side porches for your relaxation, including a table with four chairs on the corner of the deck. There is a propane gas grill. Also Horseshoe and 'Throw Golf' games.

Everyone loves to sit around the open fire pit and cook hot dogs and S'mores, or rock on the porch at night and listen to the sounds of nature.

We are looking forward to relaxing, flying fishing and exploring.

Why Mary Tucker chose Rosman

We loved the wrap around porch with rocking chairs across the front. It is quiet, safe and in the center of 10 acres. I love to wrap up in a blanket early in the morning and listen and watch the world come to life.

What makes this cottage unique

There are 5 State &/or National parks in Transylvania County with over 250 waterfalls. Fishing is just 5 miles from the home. Wonderful Smokey Mountains. 60 miles from Asheville, NC.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay the week after Christmas 2009. The cottage is lovely and more than adequate. The property is very nice...snow kept us from hiking close by other than on the drive and road in but we did enjoy this. There are some beautiful views within walking distance of the cottage. The kids loved the snow. The privacy here is a plus also...quiet and peaceful. We would engourage others to stay here. We had a great time and look forward to coming again.

Lovely home, horrible driveway

  • 3 of 5

The owner sent an email on Thursday, which I received on Friday, with explicit instructions and mentioned that the driveway was large gravel and it was best to not stop while driving in. Due to the incline, large gravel and heavy recent rains, I was not able to drive up to the house (I was using low gear but do not have a 4-wheel drive), had to park at bottom and carry everything up. I tried to reach her by email Saturday evening and Sunday (twice) and tried to call Sunday afternoon but no answer. I did explain everything and gave my number so she could call me - no response to email. I was wary of trying to get back to the house on Sunday evening, especially since it had rained heavily Saturday night and more was predicted, so we packed up and left Sunday morning and went to a motel. It was also putting unneeded strain on my vehicle, a V-6 van, and I did not want to chance a problem with the engine, etc., as a result.

If I had more warning of the driveway conditions (and I noticed in the guest book I was not the only person to have issues with the driveway), I would have reserved a different home. We were unable to explore due to the rain but what we did like the property and the house is absolutely lovely.

The girls and I were excited about the house and the property and were a bit disappointed with our experience.

Wonderful, relaxing experience and the local waterfalls were beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great Thanksgiving at the cottage! The kitchen was well equipped to handle this special occasion as well as a large selection of unique serving dishes in the china cabinet. The local waterfalls were awesome, especially the one right down the road in the property owner's back yard. The suspended bridge was a thrill to walk across and the pavilion at the end of the bridge was a great spot to listen to the roar of the waterfalls and rushing creek. We saw a young doe in a pasture on one of the back roads that appeared so tame that we thought it would actually come up to our vehicle. We enjoyed the scenery on the porch and relaxed in front of the fireplace. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and Mary thought of everything needed for guests of all ages.

Great weekend !

  • 5 of 5

Mrs. Tucker, we very much enjoyed the weekend in your cute little cottage. Everything was in order and very clean. We loved your towels as they were so

Soft and absorbent. The kitchen was very well stocked. We loved that it was out

In the mountains and we got to connect with nature.We will return next year.

Wonderful cottage, beautiful waterfalls and Mountains

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 had ample room and spacious wrap around porch with swing and fire pit. We had steaks on the grill. We saw a wonderful waterfall only 2 miles from the cottage. We went to the highest point in SC and can not describe the Mt view, unbelievable and only 9 miles from the cottage. The kids and grandkids went sliding down sliding rock for the first time. Got great videos. Plan to come many more times.

Very nice and clean. Good location. The kitchen was well equipped. Pictures do not do it justice. We are definitely considering it for future vacations,
