  • Peaceful and serene


    We were very pleased with the property. Although the pool was too cold to use, it was still wonderful being able to sit on on the large deck and listen to the woods and the birds. Not a bit of traffic noise anywhere. The house was well appointed. The cooking pans were not the best, so we bought a small set and left them for the next guests. My furbabies loved the yard and it was nice to not have to keep them on leash whenever outside. If ever we are in the area again, we will definitely look up Carolyn and Chris again. Thanks for a great stay.

  • Siblings on a mission


    Siblings on a mission to take care of a family cemetery doesn’t sound like a lot of fun. But, we take a trip to Murphy NC every year to make sure that great grand and grandparents cemeteries are clean and have flowers. Is is about the only time we are together, just us .Staying in this sweet cottage was wonderful,so much better than a motel room. We will definitely stay again in this beautiful spot.

  • Intrusive Hist


    Upon arrival, the host was onsite waiting for me to show up. The host insisted on going inside with us to go into detail about everything inside. They followed us around the house for over 30 minutes. This was uncomfortable as we were trying to unload our things and get our trip started. The hist should not be there and should definitely not go in and follow you around.

    From the start pulling up to the cottage the landscaping was very well kept, beautiful flowers / out door decor. This adorable cottage was the ultimate getaway from the City life. The owners thought of everything down to the last details for their guest to feel comfortable and cozy. They had several outdoor / indoor games, an awesome fire pit that makes you feel “in the woods”, lights for the salt water pool and hot tub area, even a fan for those who sleep with one on, etc. The cottage was peaceful and very clean. This was by far the BEST VACATION COTTAGE we have stayed at and should be recognized for all it has to offer. Thank you, to the owners! We will be back!
