    Great place to stay!

    Clean,comfortable and very safe

    So quiet.

    Only suggestions I would make is putting in directions that you turn into Twin Pond Drive 😊 on the right.

    Took us a bit to figure that out!

    Hope we can be guest again in the near future.

    PS Diesel the dachshund our pup loved the yard and squirrels 🐿️

    He was very amused.

    Thank you!

  • Peaceful get away!


    This cottage was just what our family needed. It was very clean and so comfortable. The mountains are beautiful and there are a lot of outdoor activities. No wifi was a huge blessing for my family.

  • Peaceful stay in the mountains


    The house is adorable. Every little comfort has been thought about and provided. From the couch to the bedding, it felt like a home.The outside is fabulous. Woods and a great firepit made the nights fun and full of laughter. We spent the days hiking the AT or enjoying a good book, that we found from the ample selection, on the shelves inside.There are no complaints, just thanks for such a wonderful stay.

  • Clean!


    This is the perfect little place to disconnect. There is definitely no cell service or wifi and the tv only plays DVDs. It was super clean and well stocked even with hand soap, dish detergent, toilet paper and paper towels. It was only 10 minutes from Crabtree Falls. We loved it!
