  • Phenomenal!

    "A new bar has been set for cabin/cottage rentals and the bar has been set HIGH! My wife, 2 kids (7 and almost 3) stayed in Willow Cottage (and please, call it a cottage - "cabin" does not do it justice!) for 8 nights at the end of April. From the moment we entered the front door, we couldn't get over details, furnishings, layout, grounds, etc., etc. My 7-year old daughter felt as though she were a princess in her very own castle and my almost 3-year old son loved running around the grounds. During the day, the back patio was the perfect place to sit and relax with a book while the kids played in the sandbox and backyard. Even with temps in the 80s (warm for our Ohio blood) we were kept cool by the roof, fan, and stone patio. And in the evening, we would light a fire and enjoy a glass of wine (just the adults). With the amount of activities to do onsite, we never felt the need to "get out and do something." We could wander up the hill for a hike, play by the river, fish, or play games in the huge fields. We cooked great breakfasts during the day, grilled out for dinner, and made plenty of s'mores. The dark night skies (NO light from any town) were aglow by thousands of stars and since I brought my telescope, we were able to get some great views of Jupiter and the moon. The location is fantastic since it's only about 15-20 minutes to Wayensville and other locations. Waynesville has some nice shops, art galleries, and restaurants (try Chef's Table - great food). We made two trips up to the Pisgah Inn (once for breakfast and once for lunch) along the Blue Ridge Parkway (only about 25 minutes away). The BRP is close and the drive is great. HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend this location. One of the best vacations we had in a long time. Thanks!"

  • Perfectly comfortable cottage!

    "Our family of five (and labrador retriever) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this comfortable cottage. We had everything we needed, and the house was clean and neat. We especially loved the wonderful bedding and extra amenities, such as firewood and a well-stocked pantry and kitchen. The location is convenient to both Asheville and Waynesville (20-30 minutes from either). However, the secluded property is at the end of a dirt road adjacent to a lovely orchard. The riverfront area was neatly mowed and accessible. Extremely peaceful even though we were just minutes off of I-40!"

  • Beautiful home with a fabulous view and close to everything!

    "Our family came up for Spring Break to stay in is what I now refer to as my sanctuary! Absolute peace and quite with the nearest neighbor barely visible through the trees - I think it took me two days to even notice! After walking in to the home for the first time, I could not believe the view in front of me...absolutely stunning! The home itself, is nothing short of exquisite with a wonderful layout, large rooms, beautiful furnishings and tasteful decor. You can tell that the owners put a lot of thought into this home and it is well maintained. There are neat little features from lighting to architectural design that were so impressive. It is stocked with everything you'd expect and even hope for - paper products, trash bags, detergents, spices, linens, Wii games, board games, etc. The kitchen has everything you need for meal preparation. There is even a substantial CD collection and stereo for guest's use that we took full advantage of! Enjoyed having the music flow throughout the home. We would sit and watch - from inside, on the screened in porch or the deck - the view constantly changing with the clouds rolling by. Nighttime offered a completely perspective of overlooking the town full of twinkling lights! The owner, David, is a pleasure and easy to reach. He met us at the bottom of the mountain and lead us up Harriett's Trail to the property. We would have never found it otherwise! The drive up (and down!) the mountain is quite the "adventure" being that it is a one lane gravel road that is quite steep and winding even going through two creeks. Follow David's instructions...take the curves wide and put it in 4WD going up and low gear going down. Takes a few extra minutes to traverse but so worth it! When we did decide to venture out, we spent time window shopping in the lovely town of Waynesville, ate lunch at Haywood's Smokehouse and also at Clyde's, toured around Lake Junaluska, and spent one afternoon in Cherokee. Dollywood, about 1.5 hours away, provided a full day of activity. We also explored the nearby National Park, Blue Ridge Parkway and sought out quite a few waterfalls. Many things to do with so little time. This place is close to everything! We hated to leave but look forward to returning one day! Many thanks for a wonderful family vacation!"

  • Your search is over!

    "The pictures of Cold Mountain Retreat can't do it justice. The house is relatively new, nicely decorated and the view is spectacular. The surrounding houses are upscale and the road to the house well maintained asphalt. It's remote, safe and comfortable. The housekeeping is excellent. All three bathrooms, the kitchen, the floors and even windows were clean. The owners have thought of everything; a flashlight by the front door to read the key lock, labels on closets and wall switches, maps and menus, books, binoculars, gas grill, hiking supplies and a well written "Welcome Notes". There was a minor air-conditioning problem and the owner was right on it. It was serviced within 24 hours and we were never inconvenienced. Great house!"
