This was absolutely the nicest, most luxurious home we have ever rented! It was spacious enough for my family of 5, (2 of which are adults) and would be for a larger group also. Plenty of room! The garage is even converted into a game room! The mattresses were the most comfortable I have slept in ever! (And we stay at luxury hotels a lot! For a lot more money per night, I might add!!) The kitchen was a dream with everything you could ever need and more! The furnishings, lighting, draperies, beddings, flooring, a/c systems, sound systems, accessories, etc, were first class all the way and it was obvious that the home was professionally decorated with the finest custom finishes. There were no costs cut in this home! We honestly didn't want to leave! There is a fire pit right outside, and lots of hiking trails without driving! There is literally an amazing ski mountain about 5 minutes away! The views are breathtaking! Boone and Blowing Rock are very close also. LOVED them both! The home is minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, which gets you anywhere you want to go. Asheville isn't that far either for a day trip. Its a must! The owner, Mr. Saint, was professional and friendly and very easy to work with. Quick to respond, too. We can't wait to return to this cottage! I promise you, you will not regret staying here!!
