About Kathy Lambert-Lyons cell 281-636-4917

I have been in the Real Estate Business for 22 years. This is my first adventure in to the world of Vacation Rentals. My family vacationed in this area when I was a child. Adventures to places like Grandfather Mountain &, Tweetsie Railroad are some of my favorite childhood memories. I feel Blessed to be able to call North Carolina my home for 6 or more months a year. Doubly Blessed to have a Guest house to share with You.

Kathy Lambert-Lyons cell 281-636-4917 purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Kathy Lambert-Lyons cell 281-636-4917 chose Newland

I choose this area for several reasons. My love of the Mountains was the first motivation. That naturally creates elevation, which leads to the pleasant weather. For two years prior to my purchase I tracked temperatures in several areas all over the United States. I wanted to be someplace that provided all four seasons. With a winter that was not too drastic. That research lead me to this area. My family vacationed here during the summer when I was a child. A most memorable trip to Grandfather Mountain left a lasting lifetime impression. I wanted something slightly out of the way, yet accessible to all the amenities.We are surrounded by Farms.This area provided more than I have been able to do in the three summers I spent here. We are just enough out, that we do not get in the hustle and bustle the Tourism season sometimes brings. No traffic. The area is safe. Great neighbors. The surroundings are peaceful and serene. I feel blessed everyday just to be here.

What makes this cottage unique

The most Unique Benefit of the Cottage itself is the Peacefulness. This is my Guest House. I've set it up with the comforts of a home.

We are located close enough to participate in Events the area provides, yet not in a tourist area. Every week-end in any direction you go there is something going on. Auctions, Antiques, Bike Riding, Canoeing, Camping, Charity Events, Classes to choose from, Churches, Concerts of many different kinds, Distilleries, Driving the Blue Ridge Parkway, Festivals, Farmers Markets, Fishing, Gem Mining, Golfing, Go Carts, Hiking, Home tours, Horse back Riding, Kayaking, Motorcycle Riding, Picnics, Many Great Restaurants, Skiing, Snow Tubing, Square Dancing, Soap making, Shopping, Swimming at Wildcat Lake, Thrift Shops, Tubing, Tweetsie Railroad, White Water Rafting, Wineries, Zip Lining, just to name a few.

In three years I have not managed to attended 1/3 of what is available to do.

Some things are seasonal, but every season has it's own uniqueness.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our two night stay at this lovely little cottage couldn't have been any nicer. Thank you so much for providing everything needed to be comfortable.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a peaceful place!!! My husband and I needed a couple of days to rest and get refocused. This was the place to do it!!! The back porch by the river is the best! Kathy is a great hostest! From the snack basket to extras in the kitchen (coffee, seasonings, aluminum foil and saran) to even blankets on the back porch rockers for the cool evenings and mornings. We highly recommend and will be back!

So cute

  • 4 of 5

We loved the cabin. Hearing the river in the back, nice fireplace and super quiet. The beds were our only issue why we didn't give 5 stars. Pull out couch was very uncomfortable and hubby got a stiff neck. Other bed was fine just a little small. Enjoyed our stay other wise.

Needs a Queen size bed . Very difficult for two adults to sleep in a full size bed! And we are small humans :) . Great spot to stay with a well behaved dog.

Owner's Response: Tammy thanks for taking time to write a review. As we discussed plans are to replace the full bed with a queen bed this Spring. I will let you know when it is done and you guys can come back for your next visit. Kathy

Wonderful fall getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location and the place Mary provided. It was such a quaint little place, perfect for our family of three and our dog. She had everything we needed right there in the apartment. Plus she provided extra things like wood for the fireplace, coffee, tea, a bowl of candy, etc. she is very generous and it was obvious she uses that place to love on other people. Thank you
