Lovely little place, close to all the main attractions.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect cottage for a mountain getaway. Close to all major attractions, i.e. the blowing rock, Hawksnest. Nestled just minutes away from amazing local dining. Ada’s cottage was exactly what my family was looking for. Leaving with fond memories and amazing pictures. Thank you for your hospitality.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here. The cottage includes everything you need to feel welcome and at home away from home. Extensive directions on how to use remotes, heating and air conditioner units, which we found very helpful. Ample towels, even a comfy robe! Ada has thought of everything. Views are amazing.

Cozy Mountain Cottage in Quiet Community

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our two-night stay in this cozy, well-appointed, two bedroom cottage, located just a short distance from US-321 and Main Street, Blowing Rock, NC. Beds were very comfortable. Nice kitchen and dining/living room area and front sitting room. Two constructive criticisms, however. First, there is a very narrow, steel, spiral staircase which offers the only indoor access between the upper and lower floors. This is not mentioned in the on-line description of the cottage. Older persons (like my wife's mom, who is 92) may not be able to use it (in fact, my wife slipped and lost her footing while coming down the stairs), and we were unable to bring our large suitcases and bags down to the bedroom using this staircase--they all had to be dragged around from the parking area to the lower back door; and to get to the lower back door there is no sidewalk, only grass. Older folks, like ourselves, will find this a "long haul" and a somewhat difficult chore. Second, there were two spotlights located on the outside lower level of the cottage which were not light-sensitive/automatically activated--we never found the light switch to turn them on. Otherwise, this cute little home was a wonderful place to stay and we would do so again if we are back in the Blowing Rock area.

Owner's Response: John, Thank you for taking the time to write your review and letting us know the issues you raised. The stairway is in one of our photographs but you're correct, the stairs can be an issue for seniors or anyone with mobility issues. Our guests are welcome to drive to the rear of the house to unload luggage, weather permitting. We will consider installing walking path from the outside front steps to the rear deck next spring. We do have a light switch to the outside flood lights on the outside of the house located to the left of the front door. We will find someway to make it easier to locate as it's in a water proof outside electrical box. We don't use an motion sensor as that ofter disturbs those sleeping at night. Thank you for your feedback and we look forward to your return visit.

Darling and immaculate, comfortable and convenient.

  • 5 of 5

This place is wonderful if you are looking for a pretty setting convenient to Blowing Rock. I love looking out over the lawn and the pretty landscaping. I like that the upstairs and downstairs are fairly private from one another. The beds are comfortable and we use the pull out in the study as well. The owners have been very thoughtful about the home and it is well equipped for guests. I appreciate knowing they are near if I need them, although I have not called during a stay.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Two sisters and husbands decided at the last minute to go away for a couple of days over the 4th of July weekend. How lucky we were to find Ada's Cottage was available. It is very clean, comfortable and so pretty with beautiful views. The pictures are exactly as it looks. Kitchen is so well-stocked and towels are plentiful. Could maybe add a tv in downstairs bedroom, but that was about it. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the very positive review. We hope you will return for additional visits to Ada's Cottage, we have a number of guests who think of Ada's Cottage as their personal mountain retreat and return year after year. We've considered a TV downstairs but don't have a good location for a TV in the room.
