The place was excellent for two couples. The view was wonderful and it was quiet. No road noise or neighbors. We were close to Asheville and Hendersonville. The accommodations were everything you would need. We would rent this home again.

About the neighbourhood
Sugar Hollow road is a quite loop road that is half paved and half gravel. On your way up to the cottage you pass beautiful farmland and horse fields. In the early 1950's twelve cottages were built by a developer from Chicago as a vacation retreat in the mountains. Hickory Hollow is one of the original twelve. The cottage sits off of a beautiful flat country road lined by a hickory Forest.
Getting around
You will need a car to get to and from Asheville.
