Cozy, homey cottage in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

We chose Trailside for its location in Hot Springs and proximity to the Appalachian Trail. We had a restful vacation in comfy beds and a homey atmosphere. Smoky Mountain Diner is a 5 minute walk away and has great breakfast. We walked to Lovers Leap from the cottage and drove north and south to a couple of more hikes on the AT. The hot tub was a luxurious amenity. The board games and books came in handy after nightfall. The cottage has any tools, dishes, cookery that one needs. It was fun to shower in the old claw-foot tub. We would stay here again.

Perfect cottage for a fall get away :)

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was a perfect place for a girls get-away. Plenty of room and loved sitting on the front porch. Hot tub and fire pit were great for relaxation in the evening. We definitely would like to come back.

serenity found

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful peaceful place to stay away from the touristy Smoky Mountain National Park and Ashville, but close enough for an easy dinner in Ashville or day trip to the park. Beautiful hikes just outside your door. Private hot tub and fire pit within steps of the house. The house was full of character. Very clean. We have stayed with VRBO across the country and I loved the old charm this house provided. I would recommend bringing some bigger towels as the hot tub and shower towels are rather small and it was chilly getting out at night in the fall.

Warm and pleasant

  • 4 of 5

This little cottage was conveniently located to town and trails. It was quiet and comfortable. We had a wonderful time and met great people. Melanie was very helpful and the cottage itself had everything we needed for our three day getaway. We definitely enjoyed our stay and will be back for sure.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed walking to town from the cottage. Unfortunately, the entire town of Hot Springs had a 15 hours power outage while we were there and the hot tub temperature did not recover until Sunday morning when we left, so we were only able to use it for a brief period Friday evening. The owner was great and called to check on us during the outage. We spent most of the day Saturday playing around in the river. Would love to return when there are no power outages!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your understanding about the power outage, a rare event, so sorry it occurred during your visit. Unfortunately, power puts the hot in hot tub. Glad you and your girls enjoyed the old fashioned time around the campfire that evening! Return soon.

Little Cottage with Hot Springs Charm

  • 5 of 5

Spent the weekend in this little cottage which is in the town of Hot Springs with husband and teenage daughter as our place to stay while enjoying the Mother Earth News Fair. The kitchen is stocked with the essentials that we used to make dinner Friday night... Pot, frying pan, broiler pan. Enjoyed the clawfoot bathtub for a soak on Saturday night... The handles are a bit loose but work fine. The big couch was a cozy place for all three of us to pile up on ... It's low to the ground for you tall people but short folk like me appreciate it. The front bedroom is the larger bed with twin and the second bedroom has a double with access to bathroom. The hot tub was great... Especially when we figured out that when the cover goes back, you can possibly unplug the spa :-/ just watch to make sure you don't unplug it lol. We had a great time and love Hot Springs! Thanks Melanie for the last minute booking!

Owner's Response: You are welcome! Thanks for enjoying all the amenities Trailside has to offer. Most folks appreciate the hot tub and full kitchen, for the option to just stay put and enjoy! Isn't it great just to walk out your back door to the hot tub and fire ring? Thanks for letting me know about the hot tub plug, we will check into that issue. Thanks for choosing Trailside Cottage and return soon!
