Very nice, clean and attractive cottage.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is very clean and well appointed. While the writeup does not show that it is air conditioned the owner installed portable unit to help with the unseasonably hot weather. The unit cooled the cottage quite nicely.

Great little apartment below owner's cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little apartment in the basement of the owner's cottage. It has 2 bedrooms and a nice living/dining area and a small kitchen. The only thing it does not have is Air Conditioning. It was a little too warm to stay in during the day in the beginning of July. In the evening, it wasn't too bad as the owner has a ceiling fan in one of the bedrooms and in the living area; and she supplied us with a tower fan for our use as well. We stayed pretty comfortable for the 3 nights we were there. The owner is great. Any problem or concern we had was taken care of immediately. Lisa is very easy to work with and a delight to meet.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

The place is very nice and in a great location for my annual fishing trip. Had great access to the Tuckaseegee River and was nearby to the delayed harvest sections as well. Great hosts and the cabin was very well equipped.
