About jennifer poarch
This property has been in my fathers family since around 1929. I now rent out my fathers cottage "A Cottage by the Pond" along with my own "Rocky Meadows Cottage" to help pay for his medical care. My fathers' great aunt Minerva Walker Goldsmith "Aunt Bea" purchased Rocky Meadows around 1929 in order to spend summers away from the heat of Palm Beach. Aunt Bea was known for her modernist watercolor landscape paintings. She developed a love for the mountains and sold property to her friends, one being Phillip Moose, and established Artist Alley. My father built this cabin with very little assistance in 2006. It took him 2 years to complete.
jennifer poarch purchased this Cottage in 1973

Exactly what we needed!
We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay here. Very quiet, peaceful, and secluded, but also easy to find and close to lots of great activities.
We really enjoyed our stay! It was very clean and peaceful. We will definitely be back to stay again. Hoping to catch some fish instead of lily pads next time!
This cottage was superior in every way. The owners have provided every possible convenience and amenity. The location is an ideal retreat, beautifully landscaped, yet near enough to Blowing Rock and the Blue Ridge for sightseeing. We absolutely loved staying here over the 4th of July.
Well kept secluded cabin with pond!
We enjoyed our family get-a-way in this Cottage by the Pond. The cottage had plenty of parking and area to roam. The pond was great for fishing (bass and blue gill). We also spent time on the paddle boat. The cottage was clean and comfortable with plenty of seating and places to sleep. From the cottage we were able to venture to lots of area attractions. There was no cell service at the cottage and sometimes spotty wifi, but there was a landline phone to call places and connect with others. The kitchen was well stocked to make meals. Bring your own condiments and food items. We could eat outside or in and lots of areas outside to enjoy the setting. We also thoroughly enjoyed the porch, sitting on the raised chairs morning,noon and night. The owners were responsive when called upon allowing us autonomy. We loved the artwork and quietness of this cottage!
Everything we wanted
Thoroughly enjoyed this little slice of paradise. Quiet and relatively isolated yet conveniently class to Blowing Rock. Can’t wait to go back.
Great place to stay!
We had a wonderful experience staying at this cabin. It was perfect for us and our dogs who loved running around and swimming in the pond. Close and easy access to town was nice also! I would recommend this place and we will be back!
