Wow! I'm engaged! What a wonderful house to add to our forever memories! Thank you so much Ginee for helping Earl put the most special weekend I have ever had! I know you took care of the flowers for him lol! It was so wonderful! We look forward to seeing you at the wedding! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Ginee,you helped my man make this a dream come true!
We stayed four days/three nights over New Year's Eve. It was just what we needed after our mom pasted away in September. We also had one women finishing up with Chemo after a year. We relaxed, played games, and enjoying each others company. Loved the 2 fireplaces. We never left the place except to go gem mining one day. It was wonderful and the kids even got to see a little snow. The house was set up perfectly for a group and the dogs (3) enjoyed the grounds as well. The owner came and spent some time with us on the last day. Extremely friendly and knowlegeable.
Family of 11, including 3 children under 7, enjoyed the weekend in this lovely cottage on a pond. Adult children loved the house and said it was the best we have ever rented in the mountains. Easy access to Hendersonville Ashville and Flat Rock for dinner and shopping. Of course, the town of Fletcher had great shops as well. Shoppers must check out The Garage in Fletcher for local artisan wares. Enjoyed the afternoons on the porch and dock - and the evening bonfires. The beds were comfy. The 1/2 bath was absolutely beautiful with all the wood! The kitchen was wonderfully stocked. Just a great place to gather. The only slight disappointments were - no bathroom upstairs for the big room with 3 beds - and the flannel sheets. Prefer percale. Brought some from home just in case, which made sleeping perfect. The fresh flowers in every room were a bonus!
This place was absolutely beautiful!! We stayed for a weekend in December and it surpassed all of our expectations! There was plenty of space for every guest (all 13 of us!!) and the rooms were perfect!
I would HIGHLY recommend spending time on Hummingbird Pond! You will not be disappointed!!
Hummingbird Pond is a charming lake house nestled away in the mountain woods. The property is quiet and beautiful, and the house itself is comfortable and gorgeous. The kitchen is fully equipped and all linens are provided. We arrived for a "teachers' getaway" weekend and were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful holiday decorations, fresh flowers, and greetings from the neighbor dogs Cookie and Pebbles - they came in and sat by the fire with us! :) There was plenty of room for all of us (13 adults), and it wasn't long before we started planning our return trip! We thoroughly enjoyed the porch overlooking the semi-frozen pond, the fire pit and indoor fireplaces, and the warm environment of this home. I will never look for another place to stay in or around Asheville because Hummingbird Pond is perfect! Two grocery stores are close by (5 minutes) and downtown Asheville is an easy 20 minute drive. We stretched out our last morning there as long as possible and will definitely be back.
We arrived with 10 girls to celebrate life, love and friendship, the only thing that could have made the house better would have been a working hot tub. This was my one request for the weekend so i was a little bummed. The house itself was a great location, breath taking views to watch the fall leaves drop and the stars shine bright at night. Fresh flowers, mums and pumpkins made it feel like the house was decorated just for our arrival. Clean towels were in each bedroom as well as cozy linens on the beds. Firewood for the fire pit and even fire starters were a great addition to the property! There were two dogs who visited us each day; pebbles and an unknown Mr., they were so sweet and for a bunch of dog lovers added to the homey feeling. The dogs did not beg or try to get in the house unless invited. $20 Uber ride to downtown Ashville just like the site said. Great house for all ages.
Our two families--comprised of four adults and five children--really loved the layout, location and situation of Hummingbird Pond. The pond provides hours of entertainment to children and the porch is a great social gathering point for everyone.
Having said that, there is room for improvement, namely the house needs to be deep-cleaned when one group leaves and another enters, more than face-cleaning it currently receives:
For example, the barbecue was so full of grease that we nearly had a fire the first night when we tried to use the grill; even though the porch is an open space, it was dirtier than it should have been and had clearly not seen a broom in months; the tablecloth on the kitchen table was filthy and needed to be changed; the screens on the screen door were broken, allowing bugs to come into the house, etc.
In summary, even though this is the country, the house should be cleaned more thoroughly during each shift change, being that we all pay for that anyway. With these changes I would be very happy to stay again at Hummingbird Pond.
