About Kay Delk
I have lived here most of my life. My husband and I have a small sheep farm and we use our English Shepherd dogs: Drover, KAT, BOO and Journey to help us with the sheep. Anyone of the dogs may be seen moving the sheep from pasture to pasture . The soft tinkling bells on the sheep adds an old world charm... We have two horses Tuff and Cheyanne currently 4 friendly ducks! I love this land and living here.
Why Kay Delk chose Denton
My Great great great grandfather Wyatt Nance owned this and most of the land in this area in the 1800's ...My roots are deep. I feel it. I love Jackson Creek. The mountains, the people, this farm, and my animals . This is a special place . One beautiful sunset, a whippoorwill song or a pair of Bob White Quail will sing for you...Maybe a grey or red fox or maybe a deer will walk about...Or my sheep quietly talking about their days work while their bells softly play... And it will be special to you as well.
What makes this Cottage unique
The views of the sunsets from the porch are unequaled. I have furnished the Shepherd's Cottage with my family dishes and furniture. The view of the pond from the front bedroom any time of the year is amazing.

A beautiful place with the best hosts! The Shepherd’s Cottage is lovely and so comfortable!
This is a perfect NC farm with beautiful sheep ringing tiny little tingling bells near a reflective smooth pond. You are likely to see Kay working her sheep with a gorgeous English Shepherd. Kay and Les are warm and friendly hosts, ready to make sure you are comfortable and have all you need in the Shepherd’s Cottage. The cottage is spacious, relaxing and full of charm. (The nighttime lamplight inside and on the cozy covered porch is dreamy!) It is well-stocked with all you need for a vacation lodging. Great place. We’ll be back!

Clean, nicely decorated and convenient
Very comfortable with a large covered porch area overlooking the pond.
We stayed here to take our 3 girls to the zoo. My oldest caught her first fish in the pond. We enjoyed an evening cocktail on the porch. The views are amazing! Very accommodating for our family!
Had a wonderful stay
The cabin was very clean with lots of room. We took our 5 grandchildren, the boys could not stop fishing in the pond. They hated it when we had to come home.
This is a charming cottage in a peaceful setting, but also convient to "the big city"!
This place was a wonderful retreat for our family. We had 3 adults and 4 children in our group, ranging in age from 4 to16 years old. We took 2 days to fully explore the NC zoo and it was nice to come back to a quiet setting, at the end of a busy day. The hospitality was wonderful and we all enjoyed the occasional visits from the dogs! If we ever return to that area, we would definitely rent this place again!
The rest we needed. The property's beauty was amazing.
Les and Kay were open and friendly made us feel like it was our home. We were free to roam and use all the amenities inside and out. We brought our whole family kids of all ages. The decorations made us a little nervous but our children did fine in the three days we were there. It was so comfortable we didn't even go sight seeing one day we just stayed and enjoyed family time. They had plenty of towels and bedding for everyone. I slept so much better than I ever have at a hotel.
