"Thank you, Georgia, for the wonderful weekend we enjoyed in your lovely cottage July 8-11, 2016. We had seven people in our group, including four teen boys. We slept very comfortably with all the bedding you had available (1 queen bed, 1 full size bed, 2 twin or 1 king, and 1 sofa/sofa bed), plus a twin size air mattress we brought so all of the boys could sleep on their own. Every room in the cottage is very nicely decorated, comfortable and low key.....perfect for a relaxing stay. I love how there is at least one window in every room with a nice view of your garden landscaping and attractive outdoor sitting areas. Everything worked great and it was all very cozy.
The cottage is very serene and charming, and just a short ten minute drive to downtown Asheville. Your thoughtfulness and extra touches made our stay all the nicer. We greatly appreciated the delicious oatmeal raisin cookies you baked for our stay and the bottle of wine you left for us. What a warm welcome! The wifi worked well whenever we wanted to use it. The wrap around dining table booth was great for dining together. We also enjoyed the hot tub in back, and all of the wonderful seating you have available outdoors on the wrap around porch and in the yard below. Sunday afternoon my husband and I grabbed three bed pillows and pushed the two large, comfy cushioned front deck chairs and ottoman together for a delightfully peaceful nap under the trees and music of the birds. Sunday evening we made smores using the chimera, which you had stocked with twigs for easy burning, on your front deck. We then returned inside to play a spirited game of Taboo around the dining table.
Asheville is especially beautiful in the summer and the local attractions are all great, more than one weekend will allow. We visited a local park Saturday morning to meet friends living in Asheville, had a delicious lunch at Zen Sushi, biked along the French Broad River in Carrier Park in the evening, and explored the cool food truck stop/craft beer pub/coffee shop & organic market located across the street from Carrier Park on Amboy Road. Sunday we kayaked,paddle boarded & swam at Lure Lake's water park 45 minutes away, and had a delicious lunch in downtown Asheville at a great Korean restaurant on College Street. I am recommending your cottage to several other relatives and hope to visit again with them to explore more of beautiful Asheville together.
All the very best!"
