Peace and Rest
We had a wonderful time staying in this adorable cottage. We enjoyed the scenic hikes around the 250 acre farm. The peace and rest this lovely place offered us was just what we needed! Thank you so much Diane for allowing us to stay. Hope to come again!
We're happy you enjoyed hikes on the farm, a picnic on the deck and a quiet get away in a beautiful season. Please come back!
Beautiful house with lots of privacy and charm. Well appointed with charming stream
Charming cottage in private location. Awesome place to stay
Perfect little cabin for an off the grid weekend. Adorable on the inside and out. Close to a beautiful creek and walking trails. Thoroughly enjoyed our couples weekend. Will absolutely be back! Diane is a wonderful hostess.
Relaxing, off the grid
This Garden Cottage was just adorable with lots of character. It is off the beaten path a little, but just how we like it. Diane and Chuck were excellent hosts and we enjoyed our conversation with them. The WiFi is spotty with Verizon, but we knew that ahead of time and downloaded some movies for our 7 year old daughter when we needed it. She loves the outdoors and would love the creek and Laurel Fork in the summer. We had a relaxing time, doing only what we chose to and had everything we needed for a 3 night, 4 day retreat after the Christmas holiday. Thanks again!
We're happy you enjoyed your stay at the Garden House! Your daughter seemed to enjoy the creek and trails, and I'm sure you saw plenty of wild turkeys and deer on your walks. Our rural area is full of many charms, and we hope you return in another season!
Beautiful Little Get-a-way
We absolutely love this little cabin. The location was quiet and beautiful. My family and I loved the greenhouse and exploring the surrounding paths and location. The only major problem was that the beds were so uncomfortable. No one in the house had a good nights sleep due to, what seemed to be, very old beds. We stayed two nights. Next concern was that my mother, who is disabled could barley get up the stairs. The pictures online showed stairs but I had no idea they were only about 2 1/2 feet wide with no railing and 12 stairs high. It was hard for her. Finally, the shower mat had black mold on the bottom side of it which is very bad and just nasty. Everything else was amazing and all the kitchen and household extras came in very handy. We may visit again in the spring (just myself, my husband, and daughter) and not in late November. Overall I give this place a 7.5 out of 10.
Maggie, I'm sorry you experienced some problems during your visit and I will certainly address these issues. We will replace the bat mat immediately—I am sorry this escaped our housekeeper's attention! And I will be more clear in the house description that the stairs to the attic bedroom are narrow. The upstairs twin beds are nearly new, and they've been used lightly, and I'm sorry they were uncomfortable for you. We have plans to replace the Queen bed, which is four years old, after January 1. We've had only positive comments so far about all our beds—I'll be sure to replace the Queen bed right away based on your feedback.
Please return this spring when we have vegetables in the garden and birdsong outside your window! We'd love to have you visit again.
