  • Perfect for a family; Clean and Friendly

    "This cottage was absolutely perfect! I will recommend it to all of my friends and family and fully intend to return to the area and I would not consider staying anywhere else. Our vacation consisted of a road trip from FL and we used this as a home base. We saw Charlestown, SC the first day, arriving late at the cottage where the owners had everything warm and ready for us. The next day we went into town, after a great recommendation from the owners for a place to have breakfast, and then did some local gem mining. With daylight left, we decided to drive to see Craggy Gardens north of Asheville - an amazing view of the Smokey Mountains and a beautiful, scenic drive. Once again we got home too late to utilize the full kitchen, but were uber grateful for the really (REALLY) comfortable beds! The next day we went to TN, Ruby Falls in Chattanooga, driving through two National Forests and passing the most beautiful river and white water rapids! Small children, long car rides, my daughter's special blanket got covered in chocolate milk - it was so nice to go "home" and find the pantry stocked with laundry detergent and we were able to wash and dry all the laundry of 2 small children. On a side note, also about children, the mine right behind the cottage - across the highway - was perfect! They let us set up a play-yard for the littlest one right at the flume and let my daughter play all over the property when she was tired of mining, but we weren't done. So this cottage is very convenient to that activity. Maybe a 5 minute drive all said and done, if that. Last day we put the furniture back to where it was supposed to be, returned all of the cute decor I didn't want my daughter to break, and headed out. To be honest, I wish we had more time. The cottage had great hot water, an abundance of towels, dishes, pots and pans, a fun layout and upstairs a twin as well as queen bed... so it actually did sleep a full 5 people. Oh and the meadow behind it was huge and a great place for kids to run. Honestly I would never consider another place. I looked at a lot of cottages and this was the only one that seemed to have easy access, paved roads, but still had a view and a secluded (but not too secluded) feel. The privacy of the loft bedroom will be nice when we come back. And plenty of room for play yards to be set up as cribs if you need them (but bring them-none there.. and actually I think that's better anyway). Gas heat worked well. I'm out of room! I could go on.."

  • Quiet and breathtaking views

    "My husband, 2 toddlers and I decided to go to the mountains, and after looking for a while we found this place. We stayed for a week and completely enjoyed every moment. There is so much to do on the property from hiking to just sitting on the big porch looking out at the beautiful land and spectacular view of the mountains. It was quiet and private. Town was 15 minutes away but going up or down the mountain was amazing! Beautiful vista's and waterfalls along the way. An amazing place... worth every penny and then some!"

  • Lakeside oasis

    "We brought our grandkids ranging in age from 9-18 to this magical oasis. They spent hours in the water playing with rope swing, swimming, fishing, paddle boating etc. We took Annette's suggestions and explored the nearby waterfalls (kids favorite was Bust you Butt falls). They slid down the waterfall and jumped off the cliff. This is a great place for families! The house is well equipped for cooking and plenty of space for those seeking solitude. I spent every morning on the deck with my coffee before the kids woke up just enjoying the cool air and great view. Loved this place!"
