Excellent one-room domicile for solitary reflection time in a very unique and beautiful landscape. Windows line the walls of this exquisite guest house, with views toward a private pool and hot tub, an ancient Chinese maple garden, and a koi pond with fountain. The guest house is adjacent to a beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired home occupied by the owners. Guests have access to 15 acres of old growth trees, plenty of space to walk and ride bikes, and a beautiful creek that runs from the house to the gazebo at the bottom of the property. Very close to SouthPark businesses, the upscale SouthPark mall and only 15 minutes from downtown Charlotte. Wifi and internet available, coffee and continental breakfast service provided. Meals recommended at one of the many fine restaurants in the area or ordered in. A basketball court is on the property, swimming is welcome weather permitting and a sauna is available for use.

Worthy of a special trip to Charlotte
We had a wonderful long weekend here. The guest house is lovely with everything you might need - very well thought out and designed to make you feel right at home. The surrounding grounds are beautiful - you forget you are in the middle of a city! It's like a park of trees, waterfalls and fountains, peaceful and quiet.
Thank you Bill! You all were lovely guests and we hope to see you again. It’s nice to have guests who care and appreciate the natural surroundings of our place. Mike and Beth
Lovely wooded area. Peaceful. Michael was a gracious host.
Unfortunately I didn’t know it was a hide a bed. Very uncomfortable.
Thanks Charlene, loved having you and your husband with us. Had not had any concerns about the sofa bed before. Will look into this. All others said it was comfortable. It’s a brand new high end bed. Thanks for letting us know. Glad everything else was to your liking.
Quiet Get Away
We loved our time in the little cabin sanctuary. Everything was first class from the tranquil view to the morning muffins. We walked the paths of the meadow and enjoyed the hot tub. The grounds were a photographers delight. Susanne was a gracious host and very attentive to our needs.
Beautiful escape close to downtown Charlotte
15 acres of beautiful maintained gardens, meadows, koi pond, waterfalling Brooks, pool and hot tub. The pool house was perfect size for my wife infant and myself. And the property was fantastic for a morning run, or walk in the evening, with a meadow that our child enjoyed playing in. The Whitehead's were gracious hosts, and were very helpful with ideas of food to get, local groceries, as well as being available if needed. I look forward to coming to visit again! Highly recommend!
