                            If you are looking for a piece of Gods country than look no further, because once you arrive here you truly fill that you have left everything behind. The home is beautiful, everything is perfect whether it is for a few days or longer. The piece and quiet of just sitting on the front porch or the back patio will give you a whole new outlook on life. There is a beautiful pool and a hot tub just for your enjoyment, and a splendid way to end a perfect day. Bill who lives on the grounds is so very helpful if you need to know anything and is just a sweetheart. Thank you so very much for letting us share your beautiful piece of Heaven, we are truly grateful that we had this opportunity

We are always thrilled to share it with families looking for that peaceful escape. We hope to share it with you and your family again.

                            This is such a unique property. We really enjoyed our stay. It is quiet and peaceful but close enough to many activities. The caretaker is so nice. Loved our stay and would do it again. I would recommend this property to anyone.

                            This was the perfect mountain getaway for our family! We met up with my husband, who is hiking the Appalachain Trail, and the location was perfect for access to the Trail. The owner was extremely accomodating and got us set up with little notice. The house was perfect for us...very comfortable and clean. The hot tub was an added treat after hiking during the day! The caretaker, Bill was the perfect host, even calling to wish us a Happy Easter while we were there. My only regret is that we didn't plan one more day there so we could venture out a bit more to some other areas of TN!

                            Hummingbird Cottage is a unique experience like no other from beginning to end. As you start up the mountain to enter the gates the stress of life stops. We are extremely busy and our schedules are extreme. The cottage is surrounded by a pond with beautiful trees and a stream that provides the soothing sound of a waterfall. The flora and fauna are so natural. This should be called , "A Magic Place." I say this because, once we arrived a peace, relaxation, a calm, fell over me that I have not experienced for years. The intricate 1880 Cottage is designed for comfort with all the amenities you will find in the best of accomodations along with a feeling of safety and security. There are glass enclosed rooms that possess views that call to you to come sit and behold the beauty. If you are an artist, a writer, or someone who just needs some solitude this is the place for you. There is a cabin on the property along with carved , painted areas, sundials, decking that rambles wherever you wish to go and you can fish in the pond. The cottage has rough hewn wood walls that millionaires try to imitate in their cabins. The hummingbird theme is carried throughout with a carefull plan to make each room different yet captivating as if you move from one delightful area to another and it is not boring. On a more modern note, it has a heated pool, surround sound, bar, hot tub, a kitchen fully supplied with all you need. The caretaker is there for you if you need him and a wonderful human to encounter in our crazy lives of anxiety. He is like the property, calming and happy. There is a unique duck in the pond named, "Sugar". There are books, cable television with surround sound but your surroundings are so entertaining you dont really care about television. We have all heard people say, "This is my slice of Heaven!" ; Hummingbird Cottage possesses these qualities and stands with the best all on its own. I pray that in spring I may be priviledged to once again visit this wonderful magical place,that is only read about in a story book or depicted in a movie. The owner is intelligent, honest, and extremely kind. The joy we experienced there money seemed unimportant. I felt like we had stepped back in time away from our current world where people still smile, laugh, talk, nap, and just get to know each other. We stayed eight days and it is forever etched in my mind. I must see it in Spring. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You...The Owens

Our goal is to provide our guests with everything you have described. We are humbled when we receive reviews and are always so proud when a guests comments on the peace and serenity they felt during their visit. Your commets let us know that you "GOT IT". I feel like our home is magical and that we leave longing for the next visit. On another note, I was not aware that Bill had renamed the baby duck. Apparently that is the way he feels about him/her. We look forward to your next visit.

                            I have never given a review before, but felt I must share with others about this vacation spot. My mother cannot climb stairs, so she had the downstairs room. It had a beautiful view and a bathroom besides. The property is so beautiful with a dining room that has two glass walls for viewing the pond (with fountain) and hill. By the way, each morning, 10 turkeys flew in and landed beside us on the hill while we were having our coffee. They were so dependable, I was able to set up my video camera and capture their flight two mornings. There is plenty to do. We went antiquing in Elizabethton (10 minutes away), zip lining close to Boone, NC (1 hour), and hiking the area was amazing. I would love to bring my grandkids. There is a heated pool/hot tub/bar area/grilling area that is to die for with a sound system. I highly recommend this spot.

                            Owner response: Thank you for your gracious review of our property. Mike and I are always delighted when families enjoy our property as much as we do. We think that it is a year round perfect vacation destination. The visit from the Turkey is always a treat. We have seen flocks that are numbering 50+ on several occasions. It is quite a site to see. We do believe that they have calendars at their disposal since they seem to disappear before Thanksgiving and do not return until after the big day. The same thing happens before Christmas. Perhaps on your next visit the deer will pay you a visit. One lucky family even saw a mama bear and her cubs last spring. We hope to experience that sit some day. We thank you for your visit and hope to see you again soon.

                            My husband is wheelchair bound and was able to move around the house find. We did bring our own ramp to get in the house, but there is a ramp there that worked with help. The driveway was good for parking and unloading trailer with motorcycles. Carport to park bikes underneath. Bill (caretaker was very helpfull and freindly). The pool water was very cool at time of our stay but the hot tub was very nice after a long day. Sitting out on the deck early in the morning drinking coffee was very peaceful. It is very peaceful and no noise. The pond with the fountain and the running creek through property was beautiful. We want to stay longer. But had to get back to the grind of the real world. Hope to go back next year. Close to town for shopping. The house was very clean and had every thing you need extra restrooms outside for the pool area and also stereo for music while being outside. Thanks for everything, great vacation.

                            Owner response: Thank you for taking a moment to share your thoughts with other travelers on our property. I was a bit concerned that your husband might find it difficult to maneuver his chair inside our home. I am thrilled to learn that he did not.. As for the use of the existing ramp..Yikes.. that was built by the previous owner for an older pet with hip dysplasia. I certainly do not encourage the use of that ramp for adults but am glad that you had no problem. I hope that you will allow us to share our home with you again. Perhaps when the night temps are not dropping so much and the pool heater can keep the water temp warm enough to swim.

                            My Daughter and two Yorkies just spent the most relaxing time ever at this truely splendid property. The amenities here were awesome!!! (Pool, hot tub, park like setting and the most glorious views of the mountains) I would recommend this property to everyone.....the times just stops when you enter the Hummingbird Meadows....and we saw a ton of Hummingbirds! And Bill, your property host, is so very delightful. He knows all the history of the property and will assist you with any needs. You can literally sit on the deck in the evenings and time just seems to stop and you just breathe!!! I have spent a lot of vacations at beach properties, but these glorious mountainous views are like nothing you will ever experience! Rent this property.....I honestly promise you it will be worth it!

                            My family and I stayed at Hummingbird Meadow in June 2011 for a week and had the BEST time. Everything is well taken care of, the area is sooo peaceful and there is lots to do for the kids. We have already book our 2012 vacation there....LOVE IT!!!!!! Jen and family

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: We are a retired Military family who have not had a permanent place in over thirty years. We raised our children going from duty station to duty station knowing that one day we would stop roaming and find our perfect place. We found Hummingbird Meadow as a vacation rental. While in the NE Tennessee region looking for property we asked if we could visit. When we entered the gates we knew that we had to have it. The search for our forever home was over. One day we will live on the property. Until then we look forward to sharing it with you!

                          Why the Owner Chose Roan Mountain:
                          East Tennessee is a beautiful area. You are so near and so far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The beauty, tranquility and serenity of the region just draws you into the abundance of what God has provided for us. This is truly a region of kindness, generosity and caring for each other. We felt at home the first time we visited and just continued to go back.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          My favorite time of day is early morning. I enjoy taking a cup of coffee outside and listening to the creek and the sounds of nature as the day begins. At this time of morning I never know what kind of wildlife I might see. I keep hoping to see a Black Bear wandering through. Until I do I will be happy with the Wild turkey, Deer, Hummingbirds, rabbits, birds and so forth. Later in the day we fish, swim, wander the grounds, hike through the woods and read beside the creek. Nightfall brings us inside for the evening to be lulled to sleep as we listen to the sounds of nature and the rushing of the creek just outside our window.
