Property Description

In the heart of the French Broad River Gorge, Myra's Cottage is tucked in a mountain cove we call Owl Holler and borders Pisgah National Forest. Located near historic Stackhouse and just a mile above a main whitewater access point for the French Broad River, Myra’s Cottage offers serene comfort for retreat, recreation and renewal. Resting in a meadow surrounded by forested ridges and two creeks, the cottage provides privacy in a beautiful mountain setting. The cottage has access to many trails that are located on the surrounding 100 acre property including a mile hike to the knoll for exceptional views of Bluff Mountain.

The modern cottage includes two bedrooms (queen & double), fully equipped kitchen, dining nook, living room with sleeper sofa, bathroom with tub/shower, carport and a large screened porch that overlooks Barney’s Branch. Washer/dryer, dishwasher, ceiling fans, wood stove, window air conditioner, central heat, wireless internet, TV with DVD/VHS player and video library, and all necessary linens ensure convenience and comfort. The Ping Pong table on the porch challenges you to relive your summer camp days or offers an opportunity to learn a new sport.

Myra’s Cottage is located strategically for quick access to all major attractions. 31 miles (40-45 minutes) from Asheville, 10 miles from Marshall, 8 miles from Hot Springs, 4 miles from Appalachian Trail, 1 mile from French Broad River. Hiking, biking, paddling, and nature immersion options galore are at your doorstep.

Amazingly charming place, perfect for paddlers

Danny was a good and gracious host, and his cabin (cottage) is exquisitely furnished and in a very beautiful and convenient location! It is especially convenient if you want to paddle the French Broad river as it is on the take-out road (Stackhouse)! We kayaked the river on a chilly fall day and enjoyed the hot showers and comfortable beds at this... Read More

Peaceful Mountain Getaway

My husband and I had such an amazing stay at the cottage. The home had all of the basics that were needed for our visit. The cottage was set in the middle of the woods in such a peaceful, beautiful setting. There were deer in the yard at night. The sound of the creek that ran next to the home was so peaceful. We loved sitting on the porch for break... Read More

Excellent place to unplug. Kids enjoyed the stream on the property. Enjoyed fire pit. Covered deck is an excellent place to meditate. The owner was extremely helpful and accommodating. Our expectations were exceeded & we will definitely book again. The home was stocked with everything we needed.

Home away from home!

Myra's Cottage is the greatest VRBO we have ever stayed at. From the moment we arrived until the day we left we felt so comfortable. Never have we had so many extra little things provided for us.

Max Patch is about an hour drive and well worth it for the 360 degree views of the mountains. Hot Springs is right up the road. Danny and Ginny have the place set up so you can just rela...
