"My husband and I have stayed in quite a few cottages. Five Oaks is by far the cleanest, coziest and most relaxing of any. David and Penny (owners) have provided every amenity you could ask for. The kitchen is a cooks delight. The bed was very comfortable. Perfect size for a couple. One of the best perks was the use of a canoe. My arms are still sore from all the canoeing we did. Chimney Rock is a few miles away. Don't miss. Also see the Flowering Bridge in Lake Lure. I can't recommend any restaurants because we cooked all our meals at the cottage. We did go to the historic district of Hendersonville for ice cream at Kilwins and bought bread at Underground Bakery.. Yummy. We highly recommend this wonderful little cottage. You won't be disappointed."

"We stayed a weekend at this location in Early October. We rented it at the last minute and Bob the owner was quick and responsive to my questions. It was an easy check in and check out as well. The property is outstanding with a good sized creek running though it. The yard had a good sized grassy area along the creek for our kids to fish, play football, and throw the frisbee. There are a couple pools in the creek for swimming or floating in the summertime that hold fish. The fire-pit is ideally located and great for smores and evening fires in the crisp evenings. We visited Mt. Mitchell and spent some time Gem Mining at Emerald Village both attractions were about 45 minutes away. The cabin was cozy and had plenty of entertainment options. We had 4 adults and 2 kids and even had a friend with his 2 kids stop by for an evening and there was platy of space. On our way out we stopped at (local contact) Imma-Jeans house to purchase some Pumpkins, Fall Squash, and Dilly Beans."

"We had an exceptional vacation at R Place. The cabin is well equipped, very cleaned and fully furnished. The sunset and sunrise views kept us captivated to the next evening and morning events. The owner is very personable and has extensive knowledge of the area. When we come back to Little Switzerland, we will be sure to stay again."

"This is my families second time to this wonderful cabin and it was as great as we remembered. We decided to return for New Years, as we just couldn't fit any more fun into our days the first time we stayed. I can't say enough about the cabin and the nice folks who own it! The setting is absolutely beautiful and we drank our coffee on the outside deck with the water right below us! Even though it was a little chilly out, we couldn't resist bundling up and spending as much time on the deck as possible. It is just too beautiful! The cabin itself is very charming and spacious. The furniture was perfect for the mountain setting, and the beds and couch were very comfortable. Apparently the owners just bought a HUGE flat screen tv that we were the first to use. But let's face it...we didn't spend much time indoors. Asheville, The Biltmore, The Grove Park Inn, Chimney Rock State Park, Dupont State Park, Hendersonville, and several other parks with beautiful waterfalls were all calling our name, so we did it all! Would highly recommend this home for anyone wanting to stay in this area. We have stayed 5 nights both times we went and couldn't fit everything in that we wanted to do! May have to plan trip number 3 to this beautiful cabin."
