                    There were about 4 or 5 inches of snow on the ground when we arrived. Which made it all the more picturesque. If you are coming during the winter months I suggest you drive a 4WD vehicle since some of the secondary roads including the steep driveway, are not plowed. There was a fully stock kitchen and plenty of firewood. The only noise you will hear is the rushing creek in the back of the house, which was very tranquil. The property manager was very responsive and helpful with all of our questions. The only hiccup we had was with the hot tub. There seemed to be a power outage the day before we arrived and the jets weren't working. They were unable to fix the problem since the repair man could not get there until Monday. We were offered a partial refund for the trouble. Overall, this was a great trip and I would stay here again.

                    Fresh air; cool nights; nature sounds; secluded. Ah, that's the life - so relaxing - sad it only lasted a week for us.

                    This cottage is everything it appears to be in the VRBO ad, photos, etc. It's a lovely cottage ("cabin" would not do it justice, mainly because it is pretty spacious) RIGHT next to a flowing stream. It's secluded, but pretty easy to find if you follow the owner's directions, and maybe print out a Google map, too. We especially enjoyed using the screened front porch for our meals, during which we watched the daily Butterfly Show--endless and beautiful entertainment. Only two things were slightly problematic: (1) neither one of us got any cellphone coverage (on Verizon or AT&T)--which is to be expected with such mountainous surroundings, and was only problematic because there was no land line, so no way to contact the owner while we were there. (2) the hot tub was set to do its daily non-stop running period (anyone with a hottub will know what I mean) right when I was trying to go to sleep; it was right outside my bedroom window, and kept me up a couple of nights. That said, we loved the location, close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and all it has to offer, and close enough to Waynesville to meet our fairly minimal material needs. The kitchen was clean and had what we needed. Beautiful spot. I highly recommend this place!

                    We loved this cabin, with it's simple decor, comfortable outdoor seating options, and privacy. I would recommend this property to a small family or couple who wants to spend some quality time in the mountains. The neighbors were invisible and the flowers were plentiful. The property was clean, but not fancy, and the kitchen was adequately equipped. It's located less than 15 miles from several gorgeous hiking trails and numerous challenging mountain bike rides, yet only a short 45 minute drive to the arts of Asheville.

                    I love this place. Secluded, peaceful, cool temperatures. The owners have really worked to retain the cottages original look and feel, inside and out. Old flower plantings, lovely yard and of course the stream right outside, make this a real gem. Plenty of hiking and close to town/shopping. I feel privileged to have stayed here.

                    I knew this cottage would be nice but had no idea it would be as perfect as it was. To be able to throw the windows open and hear the creek while we fell asleep. It was priceless. The cottage is very clean and nicely decorated. Its also pretty close to Waynesville so not too far from town. Asheville wasnt too far either and we went twice. I have no complaints, only praise. Brent was a pleasure to work with as well. I highly recommend this for anyone looking for a relaxing place to getaway from it all.

                    This property was a great choice for our family's Christmas vacation. The home was clean, comfortable and well stocked, firewood (for both inside and outside) was even provided. The property was in a good location, with short drives to Maggie Valley, Waynesville, and Ashville, but still secluded enough to feel like a true mountain get-away. The owner was helpful, informative and made booking a breeze.I would recommend this property to any family, but not so many that we can't book this place for our next N.C. trip!

                    Our family had a wonderful time calling this "home" for our mountain weekend. In our couple days we hiked a nearby trail, went horseback riding, fished, rode the Blue Ridge Parkway, and even visited Cherokee, Maggie Valley, and Waynesville. The kids (9,6,6) loved playing in the open field, running around the creek, roasting marshmallows on the fire, telling stories at night on the porch. The cottage had everything we needed to prepare a few meals and relax after a couple days of adventure. It was clean and very neatly decorated. Thanks for sharing it with us.

                    We enjoyed our stay, beautiful property with creek right beside back porch. The creek is beautiful, we slept with the windows open to hear the sounds of the creek. Cute cabin, very cozy and comfy. Very serene setting. Close drive to Waynesville to shop, dine, or attend the Friday night street dance! Also close to sliding rock, and Pisgah. We will definitely return!
