The home was tastefully decorated for the holidays with many accents throughout including a charming 10’ Christmas tree. Comfortable, upscale, and most of all very clean. We had a wonderful winter family vacation and thoroughly enjoyed all the home has to offer. The previous feedback, photos, and description are all very accurate - be prepared to be impressed as you approach the private drive. We look forward to a return visit very soon.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

Because I personally fly in to decorate Buttercup Haven for the holidays, your comments on the decoration, in particular, are much appreciated. Buttercup Haven is also a gathering place for my family and friends so it's important to me that my guests enjoy the home as much as I do. I look forward to having you back.

                                                                    Third time we have stayed at Buttercup Haven, it is the nicest we have rented in more than 13 years renting in NC and North Ga. The homeowner is easy to communicate with, everything you could ever need is there. When we had a rainy day, it was very comfortable to stay in and enjoy the home and views.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

I also appreciate your wonderful review of my home. Having spent all seasons and weathers at the home with my family and friends, I have to agree that it's a special place, rain or shine. Thank you for sharing your experience on Homeaway. I hope to see you back for a fourth time. Margaret.

                                                                    Fantastic experience at Buttercup Haven

                                                                    John D.

                                                                    My family of six had a wonderful stay at Buttercup haven. The home was immaculate when we arrived and the host made everything easy for arrival and departure. The setting is spectacular with terrific views from both sides of the main floor and the hot tub. The home is beautifully furnished and is very comfortable, particularly the well appointed kitchen. This has to be one of the best short term rental experiences in this part of the country and we hope to experience it again.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

I especially appreciate your highlighting the details of the home you enjoyed. It's a special place that I enjoy time myself with family and friends, along with other regular return guests. I look forward to having you back.

We will most certainly rent this beautiful home again! We cooked every night and the kitchen was every cook's dream! We can't wait to come back!
