                        We could not have asked for anything better. Just the right size for our family!! Ada's is extremely well stocked, there was no need that was not met:) Lovely, lovely place, well decorated and lots of windows for the sun to shine in(when it was visible), we can't predict the weather, so we got to see the views from different weather angles. Absolutely beautiful. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful cottage.

                        Owner response: Daphne, Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review. We hope you and your family will return to Ada's Cottage often and the weather will be better on the next visit. Lonnie

                        We really enjoyed our stay at Ada's Cottage. It is very cozy but large enough for 6 if two don't mind sleeping on a pull out sofa. It has been updated and everything was clean and in good working order, and well stocked kitchen (even a coffee grinder!). Generous amounts of linens, blankets and soap in the bathrooms were much appreciated. The owners were very responsive when we had questions. Fantastic yard in the back and two level deck. The location was great - 10 minutes from Appalachian Ski Mountain (at the most). Things to consider: 1. no dishwasher 2. tight prep space in the kitchen 3. fairly treacherous spiral staircase, but there is a gate at the top (very thoughtful of the owners) - magnetic closure, so little ones may be able to open it. 4. Washing machine requires soap for high efficiency machines, not regular. This all worked fine for us, but others might appreciate the info.

                        Owner response: Gennifer, Thank you for taking the time to add this very accurate review. We had a welder come in during remodeling and added extra bars and a gate to the spiral stair case you can see in our photos. The magnet is very strong but parents with small children should aways be aware of the point you made that a child could over power the magnet. We will add the he type laundry detergent on our next cleaning but yours was a wonderful suggestion to bring this if they plan to do a lot of laundry. We try to have enough for a few loads if needed but sometime we overlook this as it's not generally part of rental supplies provided. We hope you and your family will return soon.

                        Took our two kids skiing for the weekend. Everything was great with the cottage. Plenty of TV options for the kids at night. Very impressed with how clean it was - made it easy to "feel at home". Great location with easy access into Blowing Rock as well as App Ski Mountain. Was everything we hoped it would be and we would definitely stay here again.

                        My friends and I decided that we did not want to go out to the bar scene for New Years this year. We decided a stay in the mountains and get some skiing done instead. We showed up and the cabin was pristine. There was a lot of effort put into cleaning the cabin and prepping for our arrival. The owner was very courteous and I was very pleased. It is a short drive to Beech Mountain where we went skiing. We also found some time to make our way to the Blue Ridge Parkway and do some hiking. We made food at the cabin every day, there is a Food Lion and an ABC store only five minutes down the road. Everything worked well and we had so much fun. Would recommend this cabin to anybody with a larger party. We had 6 people so both bed rooms and a pullout sofa was used.

                        We really enjoyed our stay at this cottage. The place was very clean and well kept and cozy. It felt like being at home. Beautiful décor and surroundings. We went for skiing and was surprised at how close the slopes were. literally 5 minutes away! The owners are very easy and flexible. It was a pleasure dealing with them. I would recommend this place for anyone looking for the perfect combination of relaxation and fun!

                        This is our second ski vacation trip to Blowing Rock, and second stay at Ada's cottage. This is absolutely perfect for our little family. Cozy, charming, and affordable, Ada's cottage will provide you with all the comfort and amenities you can hope for after a full day of skiing. The place is clean, well decorated and within 10 minutes from the Appalachian Ski Mountain. I like the recent upgrades that were made to the place. The kids love it! The owner Lonnie is very helpful, attentive and kind. We will definately come back to Blowing Rock this winter, and be sure to stay at Ada's cottage again. Thank you Lonnie!!

                        Had a great time despite the weather. This was our 9th year coming to Blowing Rock with family & Friends. We have stayed in inns, hotels, and 6 bedroom mountain retreats. My wife is a clean freak. Ada's college is the cleanest, neatest, most well equipped home we have stayed in! We are looking to come back in April and staying in your fine cottage!

                        Ada's Cottage was a great place to stay for our 25th wedding anniversary. The cottage is clean, comfortable, and convenient to downtown Blowing Rock and the surrounding area of Boone/Blue Ridge Parkway. The views are amazing of Grandfather's Mountain from the deck as well as the living room (nice big windows). All the photos on this site depict the property perfectly. The furnishings are very nice ... we felt comfortable and pampered. We will definitely return.

                        My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at Ada's Cottage. The cottage is beutiful inside and out and very convenient to downtown Blowing Rock. All photos depict the property perfectly. This is a unique cottage and a joy to stay in and just take in the views of the surrounding mountains. The furnishings, bed linens, and decor were all done very well and made us feel at home yet pampered. We will return.

                        Our family of 4 just returned from a 3 day stay at Ada's Cottage. What a nice cottage! It had everything we needed. The view of Grandfather Mountain was great. We loved how close we were to Blowing Rock and Boone. The owners were very nice to work with and even gave us helpful advise for dining out. Thank you for sharing your cottage and giving us a much needed break from home!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: I am Ada Webster, owner of Ada's Cottage and Advanced Realty in Boone, NC and have been a Realtor in North Carolina since 1976. I have lived in Blowing Rock since 1990 and western North Carolina since 1972 and my husband, Lonnie and I have been married over 46 years. Since we live nearby Lonnie is able to take care of any problems that may arise at Ada's Cottage. We enjoy everyone that has visited our cottage and have been happy that we have many repeat clients. We appreciate the fact that everyone that visits make positive comments and refer friends back to us. When you rent our cottage, our hope is you are not only a guest, but will become our friends.

                      Why the Owner Chose Blowing Rock:
                      We purchased this cottage because of the view, the location and the sunny level lot.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Peaceful, charming atmosphere with a view and creative energy.
