About Yonder

Celebrating 10 years in Western North Carolina, Yonder provides relaxing and personalized luxury homes for vacation rentals in and around Asheville; from 1 bedroom loft apartments in the heart of Asheville to 8 bedroom timber frame estates homes. Perfect for romantic weekends to multi generational family gatherings, corporate retreats to weddings, Yonder dedicates itself to providing the ultimate mountain vacation experience. Our promise to you is an easy booking process, a guaranteed clean home and our availability to offer local knowledge and answer any questions you might have.


Why Yonder chose Waynesville

They searched for the right house and finally decided to build. They found a beautiful wooded mountain with 8.6 acres for sale. That land is now 'Cottonwood Mountain'. Mark, being a draftsman, drew the plans to include a spacious living area and master bedroom, an apartment for his mom and a studio where he could pursue painting and wood carving. He wanted the deck to face west, so the wonderful sunsets could be enjoyed each evening. They had the framing and roof done by a local builder and moved into the unfinished home and lovingly finished every detail to be all that we had dreamed it would be.

What makes this chalet unique

Since then, many happy times have been shared with family and friends on the lovely mountain and in the town of Waynesville and the surrounding area. They have tubed in deep Creek, learned to snowboard on Cataloochi Ski Slopes, have ridden horses and hiked the trails in The Great Smokey Mountain National Park. They have watched in wonder as the wild turkeys fly from our front yard and go to roost in the evenings and have seen their grandchildren captivated by the native American culture in nearby Cherokee.

Cottonwood Mountain now joins the Yonder luxury mountain portfolio so that Yonder guests can come enjoy and experience the splendor that is Cottonwood Mountain.

Incredible stay

  • 5 of 5

I have spent a significant amount of time in the Blue Ridge mountains, but this was my first time renting a Yonder property. Before I get to the property itself, I should say that the company as a whole gets five stars as well. Incredibly friendly, responsive, professional, and accommodating--I have never rented from a company that did everything so well.

Cottonwood Mountain itself is a beautiful cabin. It has gorgeous views from its sweeping porch, a fantastic game room in the garage that is sure to entertain any and all ages, and provides comfortable, clean, and relaxing accommodation in any of its bedrooms. It's location cannot be beat: a scant 40 minutes in to Asheville and mere minutes from some of the best hiking you'll see this side of the Rockies. It was exquisitely maintained, extremely spacious, and was an incredible base camp for an incredible weekend. Thank you so much--we will be back.

The property provided ALL amenities we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Cottonwood Mountain Chalet could not have been a more perfect place to stay for our son and his fiance's destination wedding! The chalet and surroundings were beautiful. Our king sized bedroom was gorgeous, and there was plenty of room for the thirteen guests we had at one time. ALL of our needs one could possibly think of were provided for. We were close to the wedding venue and downtown Waynesville which made traveling much simpler. We loved downtown Waynesville's Boojum Brewery and nearby Sylva's Concert in the Park. Everything at the chalet was as described (and even better!) My family and I would highly recommend this property to friends and relatives!

Great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Great for a weekend getaway with friends! Would not want to climb the driveway in the snow though as it is steep and scary as is.

Perfect Getaway From The Real World

  • 5 of 5

If you want to be central to Harrahs and Asheville and have one of the best views in Waynesville this cabin is for you. Stayed here for a few days for a guys weekend and I couldn't have asked for a better space. So much room/spread out and the views and hot tub were just one of the many upsides to this location

Great house with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and wished we could have stayed longer. As they mention in the welcoming packet the driveway is very steep so just be prepared when approaching the house.

Owner's Response: Cottonwood is a terrific house, with amazing views! Yes, with spectacular views also comes "the drive up the mountain"; there is simply no way around it. :) The home and views are worth the steep drive, which is fully paved and year-round accessible. Any make or model can make it up and down the drive. Cottonwood leaves everyone wishing they could stay longer; come create your own memories.
