My husband and I stayed here on our trip to Asheville. It is a great location for those wanting to explore hiking trails and also what downtown Asheville has to offer. It was about 25 minutes to downtown and about 10 minutes to Chimney Rock....More

About the neighbourhood
We are located only a short 25 minutes drive from downtown Asheville in the heart of the Hickory Nut Gorge. This deep valley is carved between high ridgelines from the continental divide down to Chimney Rock State Park and Lake Lure. From your cottage overlooking two beautiful waterfalls, you can hike up to the top of Little Bearwallow Mountain through 200 acres of natural forest with amazing views. The cottage is part of the Laughing Waters Retreat Center in Hickory Nut Forest. This sustainable eco-community includes organic gardens and apple orchard, conserved lands, renewable energy, and solar-green homes. Guests are welcome to hike, swim, enjoy the gardens, or just relax on the deck and listen to the sound of the rushing water. Enjoy dining in Chimney Rock, Lake Lure, Asheville or mak... more
How to get there
The entrance has a split rail fence at the top of the gated entrance. There is also an unoccupied cabin that sits at the top of the road too. You will go down the driveway until you almost get to the end, and you will see a sign that says cottage. There is a little private parking area here that takes you up to the cottage. It is dark at night, so if arriving after dark, please bring a flashlight to see your way to the door. We will have the front porch light on for you to help as well as solar lighting.
