Description from manager

In the morning, wake up & stroll along the lakeside paths down to the gazebo to fish on the dock or or do yoga by the water, or sleep in and enjoy your coffee while cozied up in one of the king size beds looking out at the spectacular woodlands just outside. After morning coffee, complete some remote work or begin creative projects at the compact desk station in the living room before enjoying a hearty breakfast of egg’s benedict and fresh fruit at the island bar with seating for 2. After breakfast, open the windows in the living room & spend time reading your favorite book or journaling on the couch as you feel the cool mountain breeze & listen to the birds singing while perched in the lush trees.

This triplex cottage is located within the quaint village of Flat Rock just 10 minutes from downtown Hendersonville, Skytop Orchard, Flat Rock Playhouse, and the Carl Sandburg Home. Within the historical site, you’ll find the Glassy Mountain trail that climbs to the flat summit at an elevation of 2783’ after passing through a forest filled with large white pines. To experience stunning sunset views, be sure to check out Jump Off Rock, located just 5 miles from downtown in Laurel Park. A drive-to scenic overlook with panoramic mountain views at 3,100-ft, this is a great spot for those who want to enjoy summit views but have mobility issues that prevent strenuous hiking. This romantic & legendary spot also offers a small park with a stone overlook, benches, and several short hiking trails to enjoy.

It’s also just 15 min. from The Gorge Zipline & Lazy Otter Outfitters where you can enjoy outdoor adventures like ziplining, kayaking, and white water rafting. Also 15 minutes away is Marked Tree Vineyard where you can sample their award-winning wines. For more outdoor adventure, head just 30 minutes SW of Hendersonville, where you’ll find DuPont State Recreation Forest—known for its dramatic waterfalls. The challenging and popular 2.2 mile High Falls Loop trail was one of the film locations for the first Hunger Games movie and is an absolute must for outdoor enthusiasts. A beautiful sight to behold during any season, the spring and summer provide the perfect weather for rock hopping along the river bank to enjoy a close-up view & picnic, while the fall and winter seasons provide natural wonders like the color-changing foliage & spectacular ice formations to marvel at.

Travel 40 min. north to reach the bustling & eccentric city of Asheville where you can explore art galleries, craft breweries, award-winning restaurants, specialty boutiques, and novelty shops. While there, be sure to check out the iconic Biltmore Estate & the Blue Ridge Parkway. After a full day of exploring nearby towns & cities, head home to enjoy a delicious dinner & local brew or two while screening the latest indie film at Flat Rock Bistro Cinema. As evening falls, enjoy the sunset from the community gazebo & stick around for the light show presented by the woodland fireflies. Gather around the community fire pit to enjoy great conversation & stargazing to mark the end of a magical day.

Ideal for academic or creative retreats, group getaways, wedding parties, or couple’s escape, all of the Lakemont Cottages embody vintage charm & modern style and allow you to step away from the normal hustle & bustle and into a lush woodland setting where creativity & community thrives alongside the flora & fauna of the region. Vibrant flame azalea & mountain laurel surround the cottages in the spring & summer, while vivid orange & scarlet foliage takes over the fall before sparkling white snow covers the surrounding landscape in the winter.

Providing a unique experience in every season, Play House at Lakemont offers unparalleled convenience & a sleek, newly-renovated interior worthy of a standing ovation!
