Andrews cottage description

Fernwood Cottage offers a different type of mountain lodging in the Andrews/Murphy, North Carolina area - a cabin rental divivded into two separate suites. Each suite is private with its own large living/dining/bedroom, kitchen and bathroom with shower, handmade king-sized bed, plus queen sofa bed for additional guests and dining table for four. Separate heat and air-conditioning, satelitte TV with DVD. Totally furnished, beautifully decorated and immaculately clean.

Don't worry about rushing to the grocery store on arrival. A continental breakfast will be waiting for you for your first and second days.

Hike, read and relax. Watch the bluebirds, woodpeckers, wild geese, mallard ducks, and other wildlife visit our mountain lake. If you enjoy fishing, catch your fill from our lake. Truly private - but only one mile from shopping, restaurants, and movies.

At Fernwood Cottage, you have the privacy of your own suite - either Bluebird or Trillium - but also the option to bring along friends or family for the other suite.

Each suite has a spacious feel with wide plank heart of pine floors and whitewashed pine walls. Sunshine fills the room and splashes on the comfy sofa and handmade carved bed.

The bed is king-sized and the sofa-bed is queen sized; the bathroom has a shower and a hairdryer is provided. Linens and towels are included.

Outside the cottage, enjoy a stroll around the lake and through the woods. Plan on a bar-b-que on the patio or a quiet meal down at the picnic table at water's edge.

As former innkeepers, we understand that today's travelers are looking for privacy and relaxation. We've built Fernwood Cottage as a guest house adjacnt to our home so you, too, can enjoy the peace and quiet of our 20-acre mountain cove.

Fernwood Cottage is a mile from Andrews, a small sleepy town in the Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina -- just two hours from Atlanta, Chattanooga or Asheville.

Keywords: (See also Listing #394991 for Trillium Suite) Beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. Only one mile from town but enjoy the peace & quiet of our 20 acre mountain cove - with walking trails and fishing lake.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Roy & Daphne Sargent are officially retired, but it doesn't seem that way. Roy is an active Realtor, and Daphe is a very active gardener. A new venture is a vineyard that you may enjoy - prize winning wine has been produced from our Norton grapes. Our little dog, Benji, is a part of our family and loves to greet guests, especailly if they bring their dogs.

Why the Owner Chose Andrews:
We moved to this area from the Atlanta area to excape the noise, traffic, and metropolitian craziness. This area has beautiful scenery, friendly people, and peace and quiet. We'll happy to share with you.
