Perfect Mountain Getaway

We had a great stay at Melanie's house!! She was a wonderful host! The updated bathroom was so nice :) and with 4 adults and 2 children we had more than enough space! My favorite part was the front porch and the rocking chairs , very relaxing. Thanks again!

Nice, well-equipped house close to town and to trails

  • 4 of 5

Cute cottage, great location, good beds, nice owner. We made good use from the washer dryer. Musty smell referenced in another review went away quickly. We really enjoyed our stay, tho wish it had been longer than 2 nights. 3pm check-in and 11 am check-out make the other two days pretty short. The add-on fees brought the cost up substantially (tho they may be from VRBO, not sure). I didn't think it appropriate to suggest a tip for the maid, when there was already a required cleaning fee. Friendly residents in town.

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 :)
