Thank you for the fastest refund we have ever had! Cottage was very cozy. We enjoyed all it offered I believe. So serene and peaceful. I had zero cell phone service there (which was kind of nice actually). We saw most all that nature had to offer I think...natural landscaping, rabbits, squirrels and even a bobcat one early morning about 6:30 a.m. Was sitting on deck having coffee and enjoying the quiet. Saw something move to my left in yard area near where car was parked. Looked over and there it was...beautiful. He just sat there for a few moments then turned and looked right at me. I had the patio door open and yelled to my husband. When I got up to move towards door, he just loped off and went across road and down over the hill behind the cottage across to admit my heart was racing. I looked for him everyday after that but did not see him again. He was so graceful and quiet. It is amazing what one can hear when it is quiet. Whispering Woods is the perfect name for your cottage. Thank you for allowing us to stay. Will more than likely come again in future.

Clean and cozy, perfect for two

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for the two of us to recharge and relax. In the morning, we explored the Daniel Boone National Forest, and in the afternoon we relaxed by the pool, and enjoyed the hot tub. The cottage was so cozy. Our only critique was the lack of a bathroom mirror above the sink. I had to put makeup on using the full length mirror. If that is the only negative, I'd say we had a wonderful experience.

Cute and nice.

  • 2 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this quaint little cabin for a few days and did enjoy the quite solitude of it. Sue is very nice to work with. We only had one problem during our stay. We didn't know where the towels and washcloths were stored. I emailed Sue and before she could answer me, my laptop crashed! So the towels that were available, I just kept washing and drying. Perhaps in the details posted on the refrigerator should contain where the extra linens are stored.

We would certainly recommend this little cabin for young people or the middle aged but since we are senior citizens, we found the stairs very hard to manuver. If you are a senior citizen with no health problems, you should enjoy it very much. I have already recommended it as a place to stay for our niece and her husband. I provided her with the information that she needs to reserve it.

Thanks Sue for being so prompt in refunding our deposit. I am glad that you were pleased with how we took care of your property. I always try to leave things as clean or cleaner than what I found them to be. If I owned rental property, I would expect the same from my renters. They are providing you with a service and the least we can do is respect their wishes and leave things in the same place and as clean as possible. The only thing that I would change is the kitchen table. We weren't able to set on those stools as we both have bad backs. I would suggest a little larger table with comfortable chairs to accomadate 4 people that the cabin is designed for.

What a quaint and wonderful place!!!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage far exceeded our expectations. The listing was accurate and was as advertised and the property was clean and well maintained. The pictures do not do it justice. Sue was very easy to work with and quick to respond to any questions that we had. We visited Cumberland Falls and the general store/restaurant located on the property had some really good pizza. I highly recommend the bbq chicken pizza. The location was peaceful and very relaxing. Everything that we needed was right at our fingertips. The kitchen was well equipped with everything needed to cook meals. The deck and the furniture offered a great opportunity to dine outside and enjoy the weather. It was nice and shady so the heat was no problem. The hot tub was very nice and put to good use. All the furniture and beds were comfortable. All appliances and AC were easy to operate. We hope to come back in late October. I would definitely recommend the Whispering Woods cottage.
