My husband and I had a wonderful visit to the cottage for five nights. The property description and pictures are accurate, but they don’t really convey the full luxury of the cottage. It is beautifully decorated, and is clean and very well-maintained. The mattress was very comfortable and the bed linens were excellent. The bathrooms were well equipped with nice thick resort-style towels and L’Occitane bath products for visitors. I love to cook, so I was particularly happy to find that the kitchen was very well-equipped. The pots, pans and knives were good quality. The cabinets and drawers were well organized and the kitchen was fully stocked with a wide array of spices and other amenities you would expect to find in a gourmet kitchen. The bottle of wine and snacks were also a nice touch!
Bill was in touch with me before the trip to provide detailed instructions on accessing the cottage. He also checked in with us (by email) to see if we needed anything after we arrived. Throughout the entire process (starting with the initial reservation), Bill was prompt in answering questions and very easy to work with.
We visit the Blue Ridge Mountains for the hiking, nature, and a bit of solitude. We enjoyed sitting on the covered porch during a late-afternoon rain storm. The location of the cottage was perfect. It is convenient to both Blowing Rock and Boone which offer a variety of restaurants and shopping. I would recommend the rental to friends and family and we hope to return in the fall.
