Loved our comfortable home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 3 night stay at the backyard cottage. The hosts were so nice and communicated details clearly to us.

This cottage is in the back yard in the rear of the property. It's private and quiet. There is a lot of natural light, it is clean, highly functional, and has nice amenities.

Beautiful & Peaceful Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

I travel to Greensboro frequently on business. I really don't like hotels and decided to try to find a better option. This Cottage is definitely it. Shana is very kind and accommodating and the cottage is warm and cozy. I would definitely recommend that you give it a try

Fit our need perfectly

  • 5 of 5

This "tiny" house was perfect for us. We were between homes waiting for move-in date to arrive. We found parks for exploring and shopping centers very close by. Seemed like we were in the middle and all we had to do was drive a couple miles either way and we were someplace interesting. Restaurants and grocery stores located within minutes. The inside of cottage was very well stocked for us. We were here for 12 days and were very comfortable. A little walk from car to cottage. Had to have minor surgery while here and was a great place to recuperate. There were two of us. Definitely would recommend to others.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We love this modern cottage and the owners!

We had everything we needed to enjoy a couple of days away to celebrate our wedding anniversary and attend a concert close-by in downtown Greensboro, NC. The queen bed was amazingly comfortable with very luxurious linens and pillows. The sitting area has a deep leather couch and the TV even includes Netflix and Hulu, which we love. The shower is perfect, nicely sized and has excellent water pressure. They have a washer and dryer, if you need them! The kitchen is wonderfully stocked with pantry items. We brought a few things and had everything we needed to create a beautiful omelette for breakfast. We loved the Keurig with Starbucks Veranda coffee and Chai Tea--lots of other selections available, too. The recommendations Shana provided for us for restaurants and menu items were spot on. We went to the Lindley Park section of town and had delicious wood-fired pizza at Sticks and Stones. We also ate at the Lindley Park Filling Station. We had the Parmesan Lump Crab appetizer and the Madison Avenue Sandwich with potato salad.

This property is located in the very back of the owners' property. It could be a million miles away if you want privacy. If you want to interact, Shana was so nice and we got to meet their sweet son, Crew. Shana even offered us bottled water as we left in the sweltering heat. By the way, the air-conditioning works great in the cottage. We stayed during the heat wave of July 2017. We highly recommend this property!
