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. The Rural Life Museum at Mars Hill University 18 miles Myra's offers you the opportunity to "unplug". Cell phones don't work here. You can truly relax from the constant interruption of the usual total media immersion. Of course, you can drive down to the river or up to the highway to get reception if needed. And there is a local land line phone for emergencies.
