"Setting up the rental was easy enough and the owner responded quickly with detailed information. Linda has a very keen sense and will help you rent appropriate lodging with a little info, this was greatly appreciated! Directions to Rose Manor were very accurate and finding it was very easy! Upon arriving, Linda introduced herself, walked me through the rental and shared any and all info I needed to know. She also is a gracious host and will guide you to some local places that you wouldn't find on your own, that make the stay extra special! She also has an uncanny ability to give you just what you need, as I arrived in great pain from a Fibromyalgia flare up, which she eased with a Kemp seed drink, that I accepted without hesitation. We discussed many things that might help me and after 12 years of no help from physicians, Linda cured a debilitating ailment, that I am still free of 3 days later! This goes beyond any expectation I could have ever asked for! I find her to be an accepting, open and very inspirational woman who is very humble, with a knowledge base of organic foods and healthy living, like no other! She is happy to share her time with you or let you spend your time quietly, absorbing the wonderful atmosphere Rose Manor emits. Be sure to visit all areas of the grounds, for they offer observing wildlife, butterflies, the calming sway of the trees and the beautiful gardens all around. I anxiously await my next visit, as soon as I have vacation time to come back! I've stayed in dozens of places in my life, but none leave the memory that I keep for myself, that Rose Manor and Linda gave me. I came as a guest and left a friend, thank you Linda, can't wait to visit again!"

Affordable rental with turkeys but limited kitchen
"Four of us stayed with 2 medium dogs in May 2015. They loved the yard and porch and so did we! We grilled a few times and enjoyed the outdoors. The turkeys made multiple daily appearances! We didn't get to see any bears but that we just fine with us! The beds were very comfortable and we all slept well on them. There were sufficient linens and towels for everyone in our group which was very thoughtful by the host. The view is OK, you can see mountains in the distance but there are lots of more run down properties nearby that you also see, as mentioned by other reviewers. As long as you're aware of this going in, I think the price matches this. The owners are very sweet and dropped by once to make sure we were enjoying everything.
For four people, the family room was a little small (furniture is quite oversized for the small family room which limits sitting space), but the TV and set up is otherwise good. There was not enough room for everyone to sit on the couches so one person had to take the rocking chair. The wallpaper in the bathroom was peeling off the walls and needs to be replaced.
Despite all this, the only reason I took off one star was that the kitchen could have been better stocked. We stay in vacation rentals so that we can cook for some meals to save money during our vacations, as I imagine many of you do. Unfortunately, there were only cheap paring knives to use so that was a little tough to chop up our food! No tongs that we could find for the grill so my husband used a fork to get meat off the grill and singed his hand. Also there was one wine glass. So three of us ended up sipping wine out of juice glasses, which was fine, but didn't feel very classy. :-P It is a TINY kitchen with very limited workspace. If you don't care about cooking in a vacation rental this review probably doesn't apply to you, and I honestly feel bad about taking off a star, but it was quite challenging cooking our meals.
The Biltmore was only 15 min away which was definitely worth the trip! We went down to Chimney Rock park one day and the view was incredible. We also went hiking in Pisgah National Forest-- I highly recommend going to Catawba Falls! It was about a 30 min drive northeast of the cabin. In downtown Asheville (about a 15 min drive) we ate at The Market Place, which was excellent!
Overall, I would definitely recommend because of the great value for the stay! But just be aware of the limits of the kitchen."

"We have just spent 10 days of the most restorative vacation we have had in a long time. The mountain air, beautiful days, and all the available sight-seeing are absolutely amazing. The home is just like being in your own home, so comfortable and furnished with everything you could need. We so enjoyed the animals and the fishing pond. Poppy came up to visit us almost everyday and Duval the cat also visited on his terms. Linda and Tony are wonderful hosts. Even got to help socialize some feral kittens."

"Woodside Inn was a perfect Getaway for us. We travelled from Maine, our niece and her family travelled from St . Louis and we met here to spend some quality time together. The home was more than roomy enough for the 5 of us. It's country location was scenic and just what we were hoping for. The opportunity to have evening campfires in the backyard was very relaxing. The dead end road was nice to walk along and enjoy the little fenced in fields and cows, with very little traffic. The small pond on the property had 4 resident ducks which our 8 yr old nephew loved feeding and visiting with. The lawn was well maintained as was the home. There was plenty to do in the area without much of a drive. We took a train ride, mined for sapphires and hiked to several waterfalls. David, the owner, was super kind and helpful. We would highly recommend Woodside Inn to everyone."
