Daisy Rock Cottage is a unique & charming property perfect for a romantic getaway, a retreat with friends, solo adventurers, & business travelers who want a quiet place to recharge or work.
This healthy home was creatively remodeled with all natural products, and is always pet & smoke free.
Daisy Rock Cottage was built in the early 1920s and retains its old world charm, while having all the modern conveniences to make your stay comfy, restful, & a perfect place to enjoy the magic of Asheville!
Daisy Rock Cottage was home to Harry and Daisy Chepriss, from the beginning of the century all the way thru to the end.
Harry was a brave and ambitious 14 year old boy when he set out on his own, stowed away on a boat from Greece to the USA . By a stroke of random fate, like many who come to these mountains, Harry landed in Asheville, and thrived as a small business owner and entrepreneur.
Harry became a local celebrity, and was featured in many publications, including a UNCA Oral History of Asheville in the late 70's. Daisy was a local Southern Baptist young girl. But when they fell in love, they knew they had to be together, despite their incompatible backgrounds.
Together they built their home, so as to have a sanctuary from the everyday world, and a place to live and love as they pleased. Their care for the property is apparent in the home's rockwork, spiraling gardens, flowering trees, and Greek inscriptions laced about the property.
The fairyland feel is what drew my husband Zo and I to this place, and we were lucky enough to become its stewards in Aug 2013. We immediately set to work revitalizing this property back to its former glory.
We remodeled the home using all natural products, and worked to create a comfortable space, with all the modern amenities needed, while still paying homage to the old world charm inherent in the property.
The custom designed beach themed kitchen gives a nod to Harry's Mediterranean lineage, as well as our own love of the ocean. Blues and beach pebble co-mingle with wave-like lighting fixtures and handles, and sandy colored cabinetry.
You will find a fully stocked kitchen, with all the basic cooking essentials, such as pots/pans, spices and cooking oils. Toaster and microwave.
Just bring your specific foods and prepare yourself a home cooked meal!
There will always be fresh coffee for you to enjoy, and we provide a french press as well as a traditional coffee-maker. Sugar, creamer, and teas are available as well.
Move from the dining area past the double-sided fireplace into the relaxing and inspired feel of the Southwest lounge. Sit on the (pullout) couch, and watch Netflix on our 40 in flat screen, or connect in with your laptop to the big screen. Or, just sit outside on the porch, listen to the crickets, and take in the greenery and flowers.
The bedroom colors were picked to create restful slumber, and sweet relaxing moments.
Our Passion Suite contains a 12 inch, hypoallergenic high quality memory foam with soothing purples and blues.
Our Country Zen Suite features a Tempurpedic King bed with a down alternative mattress pad, silky duvet, in tones of relaxing greens.
We use all cotton sheets/pillowcases, and each bed has 4 bedpillows.
We know that everyone comes here looking for a certain sweet feeling, a relaxing experience, a long lasting memory that you take with you when you're back in daily life.
Our goal is for all of our guests to feel the love, peace, and happiness that Harry and Daisy created here, and that we worked so hard to bring back to life. Please enjoy this home, and use it as a sanctuary during your visit to revitalize, rejuvenate, and feel restored during your time here.
And may you, like all of us who come here searching, find what you seek in Asheville!
We look forward to having you spend time at Daisy Rock Cottage!
Guests have access to all rooms of the house, excluding the basement, and any outbuildings. You may relax on either of the porches, walk thru the rock paths, and please wander in the yard to enjoy the Greek writing and historic rock work.
This is a single family home on a private property so you will be completely alone and not sharing space with anyone on your visit.
Daisy Rock has a lockbox key system, so you can check in literally anytime of day or night you want (after check in time, of course!)
Spyce is available via phone and email. Our on call manager is always available as well, if you have an in person request that needs to be handled.
All of our info will be clearly posted in the manual on the property.
Heat/AC is supplied from an efficient mini-split system that works excellent. Its simple to use, and a manual is at the property for your use.
All lights in the kitchen are on dimmers.
If you need more accommodations than the 2 king sized beds, we also have a twin airbed that is double flocked and easy to inflate with a built in electric pump. All you have to do is plug it in, and it inflates to the size of a real bed! Not too shabby!
Pull out couch with full size mattress available as well.
Lots of free, safe, off street parking in our large, well-lighted lot.
Daisy Rock Cottage has a sweet little bathroom with a nice sized shower, but there is no full tub. Ceilings are less than 8ft in the bathroom.
Other Amenities include:
Iron with Board
Hand Soap/Shampoo/Conditioner/Body Wash
(full list available, just ask! And if we dont have it, we might be able to get it for you)
In order to keep our house healthy and allergen free, we ask that guests do not smoke anywhere within 100 ft from the house. If you do smoke, please dispose of all cigarette butts off of the property.
While we appreciate the love of a furry friend, we are not able to have pets reside at the property. We need to remain pet free so as not to incite allergies in any of our guests.
We welcome your offspring to our property, no matter what the age. Please note however, that there are certain characteristics inherent to the property that make it just a little more trepidatious for babies, toddlers, and younger children. Please use caution specifically around front porches, and fireplaces.
We sincerely want you to have an amazing time while you are at Daisy Rock Cottage, but we do ask that you are respectful and keep disruptive noise to a minimum. Have fun, but please, no wild parties (especially if we aren't invited!)
Please feel free to enjoy our home with your friends and family but also remember that the accommodations are for authorized guests only.
However, if you DO want to have a larger event at our house and utilize our yard, let us know, and we may be open to it. We always thought it would be a nice place to have a wedding!
