Perfect Mountain Get-Away
Kathy's cottage was just perfect for our family of four, plus our 4-legged ,furry child. The cottage itself is comfortable, extremely clean and a great location. Kathy has thought of everything to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The décor of the cottage is straight from HGTV. She has thought of everything from paper towels, to dish soap to a charger for all our electronic needs. We watched chipmunks, beaver, and raccoon's from the back porch. The location allowed us to visit Boone, hike to Linville Falls and discover a new favorite hike " Table Top". My favorite spot was the back porch, where my husband and I enjoyed drinking coffee, reading and doing absolutely nothing (what a treat that was). Our only regret is not being able to stay longer.

Weekend Hiking Trip
My family of 4 stayed at the cottage for 2 nights for a hiking trip to Grandfathers mountain and Linville Gorge. The cottage is pretty small (as represented in the listing description) but is well laid out to maximize space. And the cottage was conveniently located between my 2 points of interest!
The cottage was impeccably clean , well laid out, tastefully decorated, and the back porch was within 15 feet of the Linville river. The rhythm of the river was very soothing at night after hiking all day.
The owner met us when we arrived just to say "Hi" and let us know to contact her if we had any questions. And then she left us alone to our privacy. We didn't need anything but it was great to know she was there.
I would rate a 4.5 if available. Parking space was limited.
Couldn't have been any better A+++
All the comforts of home. We felt very relaxed our entire stay. Wish that cottage was mine.
A wonderful cottage retreat
Thank you Kathy. Your cottage is lovely. We've enjoyed our stay and escape from the heat & humidity of summer. We enjoyed rocking on the porch watching the river & listening to the birds. We will be back.
Wonderful and cozy little cottage 😀
We stayed here for our anniversary, it was very comfortable and had everything we needed and even more. Mrs. Kathy was really great and helped us with places to eat around town. I would recommend Mrs
Kathy's cottage if you are interested in a quite and lovely place to stay.
From the Owner
“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.”

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.
