Guestbook comments from the owner

We have enjoyed our stay at Cardinal Cottage very much. The quiet and peacefulness of the area was fantastic. We both needed the R&R that we got at your cottage. We enjoyed watching the birds from the kitchen window and thanks for the flowers. We hope to stay with you again very soon.

Comfortable, clean, cute house in central location, peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

The Cardinal Cottage was perfect for our trip. We wanted something with easy access to all that Western North Carolina has to offer while staying somewhat close to town and amenities. Hendersonville is a great place to center yourself around, being close to Asheville, Brevard, BRP, etc., while offering its own charming downtown with great shops, restaurants, pubs, two breweries, music on Main St, vintage car shows, ice cream, and such nice people. The hosts are very hospitable and have thought of everything you need already, but they are nearby and easily reached for any needs. Lonnie even left magnolia sprigs at our door step one day, in addition to the fresh cut flowers and making sure the hummingbird feeder was full on the first day. We loved sitting in the screen room in the mornings, listening to the birds, watching the hummingbirds and cardinals at the feeders, sipping coffee and eating fresh local peaches for breakfast every day before heading out on our adventures. Each day ended with a peaceful sleep in comfy beds in this very quiet and pretty neighborhood. All in all, a wonderful place that we would recommend!

Very peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed my long weekend stitching with friends. The cottage is nestled in the woods with beautiful flora and fauna. We even saw a white squirrel. Very private and peaceful surroundings.

Cardinal cottage for Christmas getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Cardinal cottage over Christmas. The owners David and Lonnie were very welcoming and met us at the cottage. They had decorated the inside AND outside for Christmas beautifully! We loved the location and the serenity of the woods. The kitchen was fully equipped for just about any kind of meal. We enjoyed the screened in porch, watching the birds and the elusive white squirrel! Highly recommend this property, and if in the area needing lodging again, hope that Cardinal is available!

This cottage was perfect and David and Lonnie were wonderful hosts. We spent thanksgiving here with our family and had a great time. Locate close enough to shopping but secluded. Plan on staying here again. Cottage had everything we needed to make a special memory.

Perfect hide away

This cottage was exactly what I was looking for. I spent most of my time on the screened in porch under layers of blankets. The house was cozy and inviting and the are was very quiet. This is a perfect place for R and R.

A Wonderful Weekend at Cardinal Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our daughter had a wonderful stay at Cardinal Cottage for the first time. Lonnie met us there and showed us

around, even though we were late. The cottage has everything you would ever need for cooking. We were very comfortable and

Lonnie made us feel at home. We would definitely stay at the cottage again if we are in that area.

Thanks for a great vacation!
