Great Place to Relax
"The cottage was just what my family needed. It is beautifully decorated and has all of the comforts of home. The back yard is amazing and the kids enjoyed exploring the creek. We made smores in the fires that we made in the fire pit and my kids caught fire flys.
The owner is terrific to work with and I look forward to returning to this cottage in the future."

We have stayed in your cabin for the past 3 summers for a week. Love the serenity and beauty. I call it my little Hamlet! Everyone had a wonderful time swimming and hanging on the dock. (Not too sure about the neighbor next door that decided to power wash his dock for 2.5 hours while our entire family was visiting on the dock.) We tried the Blue Otter, used to be the Ridges Restaurant, food was fine and very family friendly. We are planning another week next summer. Thanks for sharing!"

"I am slow reviewing this property due to recovering from a broken rib and a concussion I sustained during our arrival. More about that later.
I must first state that Mark Davis is a wonderful property owner and responded to our every request and need. He and I exchanged several emails and phone calls and I was always impressed with his attitude and responsiveness.
The townhome itself was perfect for our group of three couples. We had a couple on each floor of the property and the privacy and set-up were perfect. We called Mark about two issues and he responded to both in a positive manner. The cleanliness and furnishings were wonderful. The location was excellent for our group as we were attending a motorcycle rally being held at the fairgrounds. This, however, leads to the major issue we had with the rental.
The townhome is located near Lake Chatuge and is not visible on the Google Earth street view. When I looked at the property on Google Earth I was unable to see the perspective needed to judge the suitability for motorcycles. In fact, when you turn into the driveway (Enchantment Lane) from Red Banks Drive, you immediately notice that the driveway is like a paved slalom ski slope dropping at an extremely sharp angle all the way to the parking pad at the bottom near the lake. We went to the bottom to have one of our couples park his vehicle with a trailer behind it down at the bottom. I then started back up the slope to locate our property. My wife got off the bike to check for a parking area and suggested the area around the front of the building. This parking area was sloped almost as much as the driveway and the sidewalk dropped away, as well. The bike started over to the right and as I put my foot down to stop the fall, there was no sidewalk to reach until the bike had passed the center of gravity. I slammed down on tree roots and fractured one rib, demolished a helmet and sustained a concussion. There was $4,600 damage to the bike. After an ambulance trip to the ER, we returned and were able to enjoy the townhome, as best I could. The other problem for motorcycles is getting out of the driveway onto Red Banks Drive. It is extremely dangerous to get to the top of the driveway and avoid oncoming traffic due to the steep grade of Enchantment Lane and the curves on Red Banks Drive.
Mark and his property are great, but this location is totally unsuitable and hazardous for motorcycles! I would stay here again, but only if traveling by car."
