Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the stay. It was nice to have such a large space as we spent a lot of time indoors (rain-filled weekend)! Birdsong and rooster and "donkey song" woke us each morning. It was lovely.

Great place with a great location for a quiet wk.

  • 5 of 5
Had a great time at this place. The property was nice indoors as well as out. Was helpful to have a fenced in spot for the dog to run around in. Close enough to town to get in easily but just far out enough to make it seem like you were out in the country. Would stay here again if in the area.

It did the job

  • 3 of 5
Inside was gorgeous and well-taken care of; it was an easy drive to Asheville.

I didn't learn until it was too late (get the "rules" before signing the contract) to get another property that the fenced-in yard use must be coordinated with the caretaker before use and that I had to walk the dogs to the yard area. And dogs are not allowed on the furniture. The porch and immediate gardens were neglected, filled with weeds and dead plants. The washer and dryer are outside and cannot be used before 9 am and after 9 pm.

But, it was very interesting to see the fruit trees/vines/bushes; these were surprisingly ornamental and very well-cared for. This place has lots of potential; just needs better outside maintenance and the rules need to be announced before signing.

Owner's Response: I wish you had contacted me if you wanted to cancel your booking when you read the "rules". It is never too late to respond to the needs of our guests. And all the information that you state that you didn't know was in the rental agreement that you signed before you booked. I'm sorry if you didn't read it before signing it. We go out of our way to make our guests happy and comfortable.
