First season on the market!  This charming, sunny 2-story cottage is centrally located in Hendersonville on a private, multi-cabin property, close to downtown (only 3.5 miles). Perfectly situated for exploring DuPont and Pisgah's waterfalls and trails, Asheville, Brevard and more. The historic Foxhole Cottage is ideal for couples, business travelers or friends traveling together. Not suitable for small children.

The Space

The Foxhole Cottage has a celebrated history. This 2 bedroom/1.5 bath, 1940's cottage was originally built as a carriage house behind the historical stone house on the property, which was known as the Brightwaters Guesthouse, established in 1938. Upstairs housed 3 rooms - 2 were bedrooms for the cooks who came from Florida in the summers to cook at the Brightwaters Lodge and Dining Room, which used to be in the center of the property. A third room was used for the storage of goods. Renovations in the 1970's enclosed the downstairs (now the living/dining rooms, kitchen and half bath) and combined 2 rooms into 1 large master bedroom upstairs. The name, "Foxhole", is original to the structure.

Today, the Foxhole Cottage has been refreshed and restored to it's former glory, exposing the refinished hardwood floors on the upper level, the original rustic doors and the beamed ceilings.

The Foxhole Cottage is a great house for getting away to enjoy the outdoors. Accommodates a maximum of 4 people. Minutes to grocery and restaurants. Great for couples, business travelers or friends traveling together. Not suitable for small children.

You have the entire house for your enjoyment and relaxation. Includes a deck for outdoor dining and large locked storage for bikes, kayaks, and outdoor gear. Please bring your own padlock for the storage area.

TV/cable, DVD player, wireless internet, central A/C and heat, washer/dryer, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, coffee filters, Brita water filter pitcher and blender.

The Neighborhood

The Foxhole Cottage is on a quiet cul-de-sac in a small, private sub-division, owned by me. This is a multi-cabin property, so it is ideal for large groups. Check out my other cabins by clicking on my profile picture.

The cottage is only 3.5 miles from downtown Hendersonville. Minutes to DuPont Forest and Pisgah Forest waterfalls and trails. Within 30 minutes, you can be in Asheville, Brevard, Bent Creek, the Bike Farm in Pisgah Forest, The Gorge, ziplining and white water rafting adventures.

All our needs were met and this adorable house!

We had such a great time so we extended our stay. The house is not only super functional but I love the history behind it. Elizabeth met us with the biggest smile and a homemade treat on the table. She was ready to help us with anything we needed. I highly recommend this adorable house. I love that the kitchen was so well stocked with all the plates and accessories that we needed!

The Foxhole cottage was secluded but near to everything. Beautifully furnished.

We had a great time in the area. The cottage was exactly what we were hoping to find. Comfortable, cozy and close to everything. Nice quiet neighborhood, too. Elisabeth had everything ready for us. Excellent host and property.

We loved the Foxhole Cottage

The Foxhole Cottage was so beautiful and comfortable. It had everything you needed plus more. The décor was gorgeous. Elisabeth was so very helpful and gave us some great recommendations. Hendersonville was so charming and there was so much to see and do there. The home was very private and we just loved spending time at the Cottage. We can't wait to go back!

Loved our time here!

Loved our time here! Cozy and comfy house with a great location near downtown Hendersonville and hiking and very close to Asheville as well. We went with friends and stayed at the Foxhole cabin with cute Scandinavian décor and our other friends stayed in a big house next door. Every detail from linens to dishware is accounted for. Everything is spotless. Our party of 10 fit perfectly between the two homes on the property. There are other homes in the same area and would make for a good get together whether there are 2 or 10 or more people.

The Foxhole

The Foxhole is the perfect getaway. It is the perfect mix between a traditional B&B and the stay in a regular rental. It was charming and very clean with super cozy furnishings. Elizabeth is an exceptional hostess. She took great care to explain the area. She provided a detailed page of all the Christmas events which was super helpful. It is ideally located for the area with minutes to downtown and just a short drive to Asheville or the mountains. Elizabeth's homes will always be my first choice in Hendersonville.
