vacation rental description

This beautiful post & beam home called The Cottage is located on 2.5 wooded acres with a NATURAL STREAM meandering through the property. The home features a HUGE COVERED PORCH where you will spend all your time listening to the stream and enjoying the OUTDOOR FIREPLACE.   Return after a day of activities and relax in comfort. Upscale decor & furnishings, fully equipped kitchen - we've thought of everything!  Quiet, peaceful spot away from noisy tourists but close to all Western NC activities.  Even though the house accommodates 8, it is not a large home and also works great for just a couple or two.

Our home is immaculate, when you arrive the bed(s) are made up with fresh linens, towels are provided as well as many more amenities (listed below).

Details:  The Master on Main features a king bed, large 'en suite bathroom with walk-in shower, & double vanity sink. One of two upstairs bedrooms has a King Bed, with 'en suite bath, the other has a queen bed with 'en suite bath.  The lower level is one large open room with a full bath, 2 twin beds, and entertainment area with sofa, DirecTV,  game table & chairs - great area to separate kids/teens from adults.  They can watch their own tv, video games, etc. while the adults lounge upstairs.

Save money and split expenses with friends & family.  Much better than hotel rooms and you'll save on eating in, packing picnics, and enjoying nature's activities. 

Note:  Due to the open loft area, this home is not suitable for toddler aged children.

Max. Occupancy is 8.

Thanksgiving in the Mountains

Review submitted: March 6, 2009   Date of arrival: November 26, 2008

Thanksgiving 2008 .... The chill was in the air, but when family gets together and snuggle around either the indoor fireplace or the outdoor fireplace, the warmth generated by both the fire and the reminscing of family times past brings a coziness and comfort that warms not only the body, but the soul ..
The incredible attention to comfort details were unsurpassed .. Impeccably clean, with all of our needs given the utmost attention .. State of the art kitchen and bathrooms ... All we needed to bring was our clothes and some food..The scenery breathtaking .. our wish was the owners command ... they bent over backwards to accomodate our family of 10 ( ages 11 months to 60 yrs) during this special time ... Rooms large enough and interesting decor that gave us not only space for the family to congegrate, but also gave us individual space for "quiet time"
A stone's throw from entertainment and restaurants... yet privacy at the utmost.. To hike to the top of the mountain gave us a glimpse of Heaven .. Watching the fog roll up from the valley was breathtaking .. There was something for all ages to experience that created memories that will be close to us for a long, long,time to come.. This place is excellent for a family get together, or a romantic get-a-way for couples of all ages..
The only minor inconvenience was having to take our trash to the local landfill ( but it was on the way to the local Bi-Low grocery store) .. The owners treated us in such a way that we felt they were caring for our comfort as if we were their best friends ..
If you can't tell that we enjoyed ourselves so much that we plan on returning at a later date, you haven't been paying attention to this review !!!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: We are interested in our guests and try to go above and beyond to make sure their visit is memorable, comfortable, and relaxing. We have the best housekeepers and do our utmost to keep everything in working order. And, yes, as Paul states, since this is a mountain community, we cannot have trash cans outside and do ask our guests if they have more than a bag or two to run their garbage down to the nearby trash/recycling facility. This is normally necessary for larger groups who stay more than a few days.

We had an amazing time here at the Cottage. We did so many fun things like going gem mining, Ziplining in Highlands, horseback riding at the Dillard House and just walking around the town of Highlands. Not to mention the beautiful waterfalls, my personal favorite was Dry Falls.

The house had all amenities needed and provided a nice and cozy place to spend the nights and mornings. We are so grateful for the little treat basket you gave us.

Our stay at the Cottage was awesome. We were able to go hiking and some sight seeing in between rain showers. Our son was home from the Army (getting ready to deploy to Afganistan) and so this was a special time for our family. The Cottage was PERFECT and we created some wonderful family memories.
Thank you so much for your attention to detail in creating such a wonderful, cozy home to enjoy the beautiful mountains that God created.
We hope to return again. God Bless!
