Golf getawayGuest comment entered by owner
Priscilla left you a message on your remarks book, and I wanted to thank you for using your very pleasant cottage. We certainly enjoyed our two weeks. Your place was very comfortable and tenant friendly. After an afternoon of golf we enjoyed the deck along with snacks and a glass of wine. The kitchen was well equipped and we both enjoy cooking. The beds were comfortable and baths clean. We will be in touch in 2014 if our plans include the beautiful mountains.

Thank you for your hospitality and the use of this wonderful mountain getaway at such a reasonable price! We were very surprised by the wonderful shape the house is in and how clean it is kept. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to come back soon. It is so good to get away from the hectic Atlanta pace and enjoying a more quiet relaxing lifestyle.

We could not have asked for a better place to stay. The cabin was very clean and comfortable. It truly felt like our own home for the weekend. Mary Grace made sure we had everything we needed and even left a welcome gift of apple butter--delicious! This is a perfect getaway for a group of 2 -6.

Some friends and I spent a wonderful weekend at Almost Heaven. It is clean, well laid out and comfortable. Kitchen is well equiped with anything we needed for cooking I could see taking a family here. This home is close enough to several fun activities to spend your time doing. From antiques to waterfalls and hiking trails.

The beautiful Sky Valley cottage in the mountains was an awesome place to stay. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for great scenery and a wonderful location. It is the cleanest place I have ever stayed with everything you need for the perfect mountain get-away! The cottage is in pristine condition and has a warm atmosphere. There are many hiking places with waterfalls nearby, as well as being close to Dillard and Highlands, N.C. You can't find a better place to rent for your time away!
