Gorgeous and comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

We can't wait to go again! My husband and I, along with our two dogs, loved staying at the Graceful Heart Cottage! Everything was very clean and incredibly comfortable. Grace even had a variety of pamphlets and other information available for her tenants, which we thought was a lovely touch! Unfortunately the tub was stained, apparently a long time ago. It was not dirty, but we opted not to use it... Ultimately that did not detract from the experience.

Grace and I did not meet in person, but she was incredibly responsive and helpful when communicating by email.

Owner's Response: Thank you Laura for your feedback! The tub stain does seem to present a deterrent for many folks to want to use it, and I will be leaving a more detailed sheet in the cottage that will explain things better such as where extra sheets and blankets are, the tub stain that is not a danger but unsightly for sure, and that folks can call or email if they need things they do not find in the kitchen that I might have in mine, plus other little tidbits for a more enjoyable stay at the cottage.

Just wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

We spent 4 days at Christmas, fixing a Christmas dinner and watching movies. Drove into Asheville for two days to explore. This was my home growing up so we visited some family cemeteries. The house has a minimal feel and the only thing missing was a few more needed cooking items like a mixing bowl or two and a better casserole dish. That said, we made it work and thoroughly enjoyed the house and our stay. I would highly recommend this property to others.

Great stay at Graceful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Perfect space for a weekend stay. The backyard was perfect for the dog to explore and the 2nd floor balcony was nice to sit on at the end of the day. Also loved the soaking tub to relax in after hiking around the area. I will definitely be back.

Disappointing

  • 2 of 5

The price/value ratio for this unit is out of whack. Nothing is wrong with the unit, but for the price we expected a bathroom on the same floor as the bedroom, not to have to wash the dishes by hand and to have places to sit that were comfortable. Dated and tired.
