Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.
This place is perfect for reflection and tranquility. The creek, and the sound, is beautiful. We hiked up. It was challenging and rewarding. Coming from a newer urban city the decor of the cottage appeared older and a little miss matched, but in not in bad conditions. The mattresses were very comfortable and high quality. I feel that not rating location and neighborhood a five is wrong. I did bcz we wanted to be closer to skiing/snow tubing -whic it's about 1 1/2 away but the drive is breath taking.... and a little intimidating for non mountain people. However, if sense of solitude and driving is not a concern, this is your place. The kitchen had all we needed. The microwave is an older model so it took a few tries to figure it out. Bring your wine/liquor bcz nearest towns do not sell alcohol. However short driver to neighboring County resolves it.
Enjoy your stay. We did.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Laurel Creek Cottage in beautiful Mitchell County and we hope you will visit with us again soon. Mitchell County does have alcohol available, in restaurants and stores, in nearby Spruce Pine. Thank you again for choosing Laurel Creek Cottage!
Overall nice stay!
The cottage was cute and the area was nice. Only complaints would be that the cottage is located right next to what I assume is the owners house. Wasn’t a huge issue for us, but not quite the solitude I was expecting from description. Also not much hot water so if you have a 5 person family like us not everyone got a good shower each night. It was peaceful and was good short stay for our family!
Weekend hiking getaway
The cottage was very comfortable and well maintained. It was very relaxing listening to the creek while sitting on the patio. It’s a great location to get to many hiking destinations.
Quiet retreat, having the back door open with screen door locked, listening to the sound of the creek was very relaxing. A beautiful sight to see also. Great place to be alone or with a loved one to enjoy the peacefulness and relax.
The owners were wonderful to keep us updated and made it very easy to find and check in. The house was the perfect size and very comfortable. The stream running alongside it was amazing!! The house was a little musty smelling that could cause some issues with allergies, I noticed another traveler mentioned it too. The property was very clean and I think it may be from the dampness of the area or maybe reclaimed wood. However, we opened the door a bit and it was perfect. Dont let that deter you from this amazing little get away. Motorcycle riders, it's a great ride and excellent parking!
