About Pam Kuhl

Growing up in Kentucky, my husband and I relocated to Florida because of his career. We soon found that we liked vacationing in the mountains of North Carolina in the summer to escape the heat.Then we visited in the fall, and saw how spectacular the leaf change was, then we visited in the spring and loved all the flowers and trees in bloom. We have now visited every month of the year, and decided it's fantastic year-round.

Mark is an avid outdoorsman who loves adventure, Pam is a wildlife enthusiast who loves to entertain, and values meaningful conversation around the fire. Their love to serve the needy has taken them to many third-world countries, but they return to North Carolina to relax.

Pam Kuhl purchased this house in 2016

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Tiny Trail Cottage is just amazing! Modern, secluded but close to town, and with all the amenities and comforts of home. We loved spending our days visiting waterfalls and exploring Cashiers/Highlands. Definitely check out the High Hampton Inn and the plethora of trails and scenic overlooks all within 20 minutes of the house. Can't wait to come back.

Cute, Clean and Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

I pride myself in always finding the most perfect places for getaways. My number one “must have” is clean and updated - check! Next, the location - which is perfect! It is secluded as if you are out in the middle of nowhere yet you can walk into town. Pam was the perfect host. When I told her we would be arriving early she made sure the cleaning staff got on it and we did not have to wait until check in time. She made sure all our needs were met and then gave us space to enjoy our stay.

If you choose, there are many beautiful hiking areas, shopping and restaurants nearby. On the other hand, if you want to just relax you can be content to just stay home! The comfy furnishings, big screen tv, porches overlooking a peaceful pond and well stocked fire pit make this a perfect retreat. Very nice for a couple or small family.

1st may I say, Thank You Pam for allowing us to stay at your amazing cottage.

This was the perfect getaway for my husband and I. The cottage has EVERYTHING you will need to make you feel right at home. Pam thought of every single detail. Just bring your tooth brush . So cozy and inviting. We enjoyed the quiet forest like setting. Listening to the beautiful trees rustling in the wind, the most beautiful ducks quacking in the pond. and watching the cutest little chipmunks running and chasing one another was just something out of a dream. We did not want to leave.

The cottage is close to everything. There is Ingles grocery, a farmers market, great little restaurants, The best BBQ ever and Higlands is a short beautiful drive away.

Top notch, best vacation ever.

Thank you again Pam. I look forward to staying at your cottage again in the near future.
