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.

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 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.

Highly Recommended!

Foxhole Cottage was delightful for our girls weekend. It was exceptionally clean, very cozy and I felt like I was living in a book! Elisabeth was the BEST host and was very attentive to our needs. I absolutely recommend Foxhole Cottage!

Hi Everyone, I'm an avid mountain biker and hiker. I love the mountains and invite you to enjoy them too.

As the owner of several vacation rentals, Brightwaters Vacation Rentals, I take great pride in creating a home away from home for my guests and, as a host, I've met a lot of great people. I'm happy to share my knowledge and experience with you when you visit Western North Carolina.
