Open Master Suite with Extra Bedroom, Cottage, Set back in Trees, In the Country
About Allison Layden
We are a family of 5, raising 3 children. Floyd grew up in Belvidere and I (Allison) was born in GA. We were married in 2000 and cleared the lot given to us by Floyds Father. We put a home on the 2 acre piece. We built the cottage in the side yard for family when they travel here to visit and then decided to share it with guests. We enjoyed building it and look forward to sharing it with others! All wood. Not one square inch of drywall. Wood cathedral ceilings, walls and floor are wood, cork, and laminate. No carpet here for allergies to stir up!
Why Allison Layden chose Belvidere
Quiet, Secluded in the trees, safe for kids and family! Better than crowded hotels and bed and breakfasts where you can't control the temperature in your room. We are the owners and we will be here if you need anything, not states away. No Phones to bother you while on vacation. Bring your cell phone! We will not bother you, but we are here if you need us.
What makes this Cottage unique
Sit on the front porch and read a book in our Nags Head Hammock Swing! Walk the wooded trail behind the cottage. Take a dip in the saltwater pool. Catch up on your favorite shows or movies. Go a half a mile to our country style restaraunt with nice gift shop inside a historic home. They serve breakfast, lunch, supper and have hot tea times. Visit the country store as well, where they still have hoop cheese and cut fresh meat to order! (Featured in OUR STATE Magazine) Enjoy some NC caught seafood that we catch OURSELVES! We are set back in time! No RUSH HERE! Just RELAX!!! Isn't that what vacation means? Give us a try!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at your quaint cottage. I was looking for a small place, secluded and quiet. I definitely found this in your cottage. The cottage was immaculate, perfect in everyway. Thank you for your hospitality and I hope to visit again in the near future.
perfect cottage hide-out
I made a mistake in initial booking, but Allison helped me take care of it right away. The cottage is completely set up with everything you could need for a get away. Clean and tidy the feel is cozy and comfortable from the moment you enter. Our only goal was to escape to peace and quiet for a couple of days, and this totally fit the bill.
