Mountainside Cottage – Lesbian Owned Cottage in Alexander, North Carolina

Mountainside Cottage

Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay:

Built in 2008, Mountainside Cottage is the perfect place to stay while exploring the wonderful towns of Asheville and Weaverville. The interior is light-filled and sunny, thanks to the many windows and skylights (there’s even a skylight in the shower!). The cottage has central air conditioning for warmer days, as well as ceiling fans for those who prefer a cool breeze.

Even though we’re only about 15-20 minutes from downtown Asheville, our cottage is totally secluded. Once you’re here, you can see no one and no one can see you. Imagine sitting in the hot tub at night with no roof overhead — you can look right up at the stars. And it’s perfect because there are no city lights to spoil the view.

You can either stay in the cottage and enjoy the hot tub and totally relax or use it as a place to come back to after you’ve explored Asheville. We even have a binder that has restaurant menus, information on the Biltmore Estate, the Blue Ridge Parkway, things to do in Asheville, hikes in the area– complete with maps and written directions. We’ve tried to think of everything to take the guess work out of what to do and how to get there. That way you don’t have to spend all your time planning what to do–you can just go do it!

We furnish everything you’ll need for a perfect vacation. Washer/dryer, linens, microwave, toaster, mixer, blender, coffee maker, wine glasses, pots and pans, dishes–there will even be a bottle of champagne in the refrigerator when you arrive! You simply need to bring clothes and food.

Even though we do have an outdoor gas grill at the cottage, there’s a great park a mile-and-a-half away where you can cook out beside the French Broad River (yes, you can even hear the river at night). The Ledges Park is also a place where you can put in to kayak the area or go fly fishing.

And we’re more than happy to accommodate your pets (dogs only, please!). The cottage is totally surrounded by woods, so it’s a great place for your furry friends to run and play. There’s also a dog park/mountain bike trail a mile from the cottage.

Eating Out: North Carolina’s Craft Cuisine, Breweries, and Distilleries

NoDa-Charlotte-tap-handles - Passport

From Asheville in the west to Wilmington on the coast, North Carolinas major cities percolate with delicious and boozy creativity, and since many of these treats and bottles are strictly local, the only way to savor and/or take them home is to actually go there for some gastrotourism.

I took a NC road trip to check out the diverse offerings, from crispy buffalo-style pig ears, and possibly the worlds best nouveau grits dish, to a dense chocolate stout beer that obsessed locals camp out overnight for, plus fabulous LGBT-owned spots and chefswith help from a designated driver and prudent pacing, of course.

ASHEVILLE

Nestled in the mountains, Asheville (www.exploreasheville.com) holds a reputation as one of the Souths most prominent LGBT meccas. Hippies, hipsters, and artists have long flocked here: its progressive Black Mountain College was founded in 1933, with a teacher and alumni roster that includes Josef Albers and Merce Cunningham. Today, culinary culture also reigns, with a Portland-like output of incredible craft every- thing. Portland is the Asheville of Oregon, one local countered, strongly.

Asheville Soars as a Gay Travel Destination

Author: , October 30th, 2014

Biltmore Estate - from the Biltmore.com site

If you’ve been keeping up with the country’s most buzzed-about hipster destinations of late, you’ve probably heard of places like Austin, Brooklyn and Portland, Ore. Also mentioned in that mix is Asheville. This small mountain metropolis in western North Carolina has long been a relatively progressive island in one of the nation’s more socially conservative regions.

LGBT-owned businesses, art galleries and furniture studios, along with inviting Victorian and Arts and Crafts-style inns — and independently owned shops, clubs, theaters and cafes — have thrived here for decades. More recently, Asheville has cultivated an urbane, artisan-driven food and drink scene that’s particularly impressive for a city of about 85,000.

With a reasonable cost of living and a moderate climate, Asheville is becoming a popular place to relocate among not just hipsters but all sorts of professionals of all ages, many from larger and more crowded cities. Additionally, young college grads are moving in at a steady pace — something that seldom happened in Asheville before the city began to undergo a renaissance a couple of decades ago. This leafy, hilly community — two hours from Charlotte, 3.5 hours from Atlanta and 4.5 from Nashville — has become a top weekend destination, too, with a sizable gay following.
