About Kathy McGuinn

I live and work on the property as I am an RN and a raw vegan chef and have a raw vegan food business to assist others in having foods to heal their body, mind and spirit.

Kathy McGuinn purchased this house in 2003

Very quaint! Kathy is great!

  • 5 of 5

After a little trouble finding it in the dark, we were happy to open the door to such a cute place. We really appreciated finding a place for just one night so that we didn't have to drive back home so late. Kathy is really sweet and her place is clean and comfortable. We'll be back another time for more than one night!

Not so Luxurious

  • 2 of 5

After watching the online video, it was nothing like it. There are so many issues, that I guess I should list some of the ones that were most important. It was a cute suite - but it was not clean. In fact, not sure when the last time it was truly clean. But it was almost like they forgot to come clean it before we showed up. It was mostly surface cleaning that it needed but it made me wonder if everything else was clean. The sheets on the king bed were not luxurious - they had holes in them. There were missing light bulbs that we had to ask for.....and then one of the lights in the separate bedroom still did not work - worried that it might be an electrical issue. They were renovating the suite next door the whole time we were there - up until 8 pm Saturday night. The sidewalk was blocked with construction items - in fact, I tripped over some electrical cords. After putting up with so much, the last straw was the construction that was going on Saturday night. We made the reservations several months before we go there - and had a couple of emails going back and forth - but nothing was ever said about the construction until we showed up. We couldn't even enjoy "the private patio" area - not so private with all the construction going on. The owner assured me that she would refund us $50 - not near enough for what we got - but I still have not seen that - nor have I heard back from her. I think I am being generous with the 2 stars. Very disappointed.

Owner's Response: Elizabeth, You are right that the property was not up to par as it has been for the over 5 yrs! We have had it and 7 other 5 star rentals during this time. I apologize for your experience! We rented out the units more than normal due to letting people stay free during the Irma displacements. That also caused us to not finish the remodel on the home. We have since replaced sheets,towels and "spring" cleaned the whole place! There is no one out where the patio is and it is back to the calm lovely place that it has been all of these years! I did not realize that the $50 refund did not go through! I am sending a $100 on instead! Peace, Kathy

Friendly Responsive Host close to downtown

  • 5 of 5

Kathy was an amazing host. The place is well maintained, and super comfy with one king size bed and one queen. It's close to downtown (Uber is only $7 on way). Was very convenient when my in-laws brought their dogs, and was close to a major high ways when you wanted to visit the mountains or the Biltmore. Highly recommend to stay.
