About the property

Come Enjoy This 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Cottage On 5 Wooded Acres With a Waterfall

Beautiful, park like and completely private, this five acre mountain retreat offers the best of both worlds. Take time to relax on the stone patio next to a lovely waterfall and woodland stream or take in the many events and attractions Western North Carolina has to offer. Beautiful and comfortable all year round, this cottage is conveniently located minutes from I-26, Hendersonville/Asheville or Tryon/Green Creek. The house features a master suite with a king size bed, on-suite and French doors onto the front porch. The second bedroom has a queen size bed. There is a second full bathroom as well. The center of the house offers an open concept main living area with wood burning fireplace, a nicely appointed kitchen with 5 burner gas range, dishwasher, side by side refrigerator and island for food preparation. Take advantage of the fresh herbs just steps from the kitchen door.

High speed internet, TV with DVD/VCR player and Amazon Fire streaming media box are all available for your entertainment.

The house is both dog and kid friendly. Well behaved canine companions are welcome, please plan to crate if you are leaving them alone. If you are traveling with an infant or toddler, a pack and play, high chair, umbrellas stroller, car/booster seats and related are available for a small extra fee.

There is a wrap around front porch that overlooks acres of gardens, rhododendron covered mountainside and stone patio with a private waterfall and mountain stream. Or enjoy the cozy screen porch to listen to the song birds and peepers. Camp Creek Road is very quiet and lightly traveled. The parking area is large enough to accommodate 3 vehicles.

Saluda Serenity is conveniently located 1.5 miles from downtown Saluda and just minutes from both Hendersonville and the Tryon International Equestrian Center. Enjoy all that Saluda has to offer. There is shopping and dining, white water kayaking or guided mountain outings offered by Green River Adventures/Gorge Zip Line. From Spring into Autumn the area offers hundreds of outdoor festivals, live music, art shows, farmers markets and much more. Take a day and enjoy the Biltmore Estate, Grove Park Inn or all of the many microbreweries in Asheville. Or meander your way along the Blue Ridge Parkway and be awestruck by the view of mountains beyond mountains.

Roam or relax, a wonderful vacation awaits you and your family at Saluda Serenity.

About Barbara Raymond

A transplant to Western North Carolina from Syracuse New York, I revel in the beauty and magic of the Blue Ridge Mountains. My dog Nutmeg and I have spent many hours hiking the trails in the area, which reminds me so much of upstate NY (without the horrible winters). My sincere hope is that you come to love this region as much as I do.

Barbara Raymond purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Barbara Raymond chose Saluda

Many have asked me how I ended up in Saluda, and my honest answer is "I have no idea, but I am so glad I'm here". When I saw Saluda Serenity on line, I honestly was not particularly interested, until the real estate agent said the word "waterfall". I remember coming around the curve at the bottom of the driveway and watching this magic little house nestled under huge trees appear before my eyes. It was love at first sight and I've never had a second thought.

What makes this cottage unique

You will enjoy total privacy, not a neighbor in site, yet you'll be able to get to the interstate in minutes. Whether it is indoors or out, you will feel the peace and serenity seep into your being. Kick back and relax.

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much we called Barbara and asked if we could extend it one more day. The house is charming, roomy and extremely clean. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked. The single digit temps kept us from enjoying the fire pit by the waterfall and stream, but now we have an excuse to go back during the warmer months. We highly recommend this vacation rental and Barbara was very accommodating!

Top Choice Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

Property was immaculate! Nice amount of space, tastefully decorated, everything you could possibly need in a vacation cabin was thought of here. Convenient to town but also out enough to be very quiet and peaceful. Highly recommend!

The property is beautiful, and the house was super clean and well kept! The master bed was extremely comfy as well. The downtown area is very convenient to get to and has cute shops and restaurants. We brought our dog and went hiking in one of the nearby trails which was beautiful. I 100% recommend staying here and will definitely be back.

Wonderful autumn get-away

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was lovely, and is much like it appears in the pictures. The owner is obviously someone who enjoys gardening, as the grounds around the home are quite lovely and well-maintained. The home itself is very cozy, with a very spacious master bedroom. The kitchen is well-stocked, although as an avid cook, I seek additional kitchen tools to create my culinary masterpieces. My husband, two sons and I very much enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home.
