Tour this stunning secluded cottage in North Carolina 

Cristina And Hal's dreamy cottage — aptly nicknamed Nature Lover's Retreat — is located just 6 minutes from downtown Asheville, N.C., but its secluded vibe allows you to forget that the outside world even exists. While shrouded in impossibly lush greenery, it's impossible not to fall for this brief repose from your daily stresses.
According to its listing, the cottage is only accessible via a one-lane gravel road — which amplifies its sense of privacy despite its proximity to a bustling town. The owners, Cristina And Hal (and their 20-year-old cat Scamper), are easily accessible should you need anything, but it's difficult to imagine having any concerns while staying in the fully-stocked cottage.

Rather than appear in stark contrast to its verdant surroundings, this white cottage stands as a beacon of warmth and coziness.
The bright decor inside shows that Cristina and Hal are not afraid of color, making the space a feast for the eyes.
The cheery kitchen leads out to a private brick patio, allowing you to dine al fresco and enjoy nature.
The floors are all reclaimed antique heart pine wood, tying the bold style choices of the decor together with ease.
Just past the kitchen is the bedroom. Can we take a moment to appreciate how the vibrant bedroom decor peeks out through the doorframe?
The sunny bedroom features both plants and wildlife photography, allowing you to embark on a warm and happy adventure.
There's even a cozy writing nook for you to record your thoughts and dreams.
Cristina and Hal consider this custom tiled shower to be their favorite aspect of the cottage.
The private patio features stunning brickwork and echoes the colorful interior decor.
If you're lucky, you may even spot Scamper!
