Guestbook comments from the owner

The cottage at Pacolet Hill Farm is nothing short of delightful.

The setting couldn't be more beautiful & serene.

The rooms are spacious with comfortable beds and couches.

The home is well appointed with everything you need from linens to cooking utensils.

I am a rider and having the washer /dryer was a huge bonus.

Helen & Mike are wonderful hosts.

I will definitely go back!

Aberfoyle - Private Country Retreat in Equestrian and Golf Setting

Quaint cottage in a picturesque setting- very convenient to Tryon Equestrian Center.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this home with its unique architectural features! It was convenient to our event at Tryon International. The kitchen was lots of fun and a great place to gather. The 3rd bedroom has its own entrance and is very private. Only suggestion would be to bring your own towels- there were only six small bath towels and no face cloth.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the house. Facecloths were in the linen closet and yes, towels are being replaced with larger, fluffier ones - thank you for pointing that out as we always strive to improve your stay!

Lovely peaceful farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Helen and her property. If peace and quiet are what you're after, this is the place you're looking for. We spent most of our time in the house, which is beautiful and full of character. Our family loved the huge kitchen and views from the windows.

There was more than enough room for our party of four plus a toddler, and the floorplan allows for plenty of privacy. The board game stash was a nice surprise too, but seeing the horses was probably the highlight of our short stay. Would love to go back!

We found it to be a lovely and accommodating place!

  • 5 of 5

While we stayed here we were attaining a Woman's Conference near by so we were only really there over night and for breakfast.

Us ladies enjoyed the whole place but especially sitting in the living room chatting and laughing late into the night!

Thank you for making this place available!!
