Love Carol's Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location...2 Mile's from town, but felt like we were further. Sitting on the front porch for morning coffee or our evening meal was relaxing. Can't wait to stay again!!

Cozy and modern conveniences- Centrally located.

  • 5 of 5

Carol's Cottage is an adorable and extremely clean lodging option. Fully equipt kitchen made it easy to make dinners in for our 3 couples and our college daughters. Located very close to W&L made this hidden gem the perfect home for us. We look forward to many more stays over the next few years! Thank you Carol & Bernie.

Comfortable and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a place that feels like home, this is it! One morning there were deer grazing in the back and fog settled low over the rolling hills in the front. Highly recommend!
