Our 3rd year spending the kids spring break at the Toobie Hole cottage was wonderful! We spend the whole year looking forward to getting away to this peaceful slice of heaven. There are so many things about this place that we love. 1. The absolute peace and quiet. The only noise is the sound of the water bubbling in the creek out back.
2. The cottage is so comfy. Stocked with everything we need...feels like home.
3. The DECK. We spend hours and hours every day sitting on the deck reading while our kids play in the creek. I cannot say enough about this...I daydream about sitting on this deck all year! There is a sweet donkey next door in the field. If you go to the fence and call "scruffy", he will usually come running. He's so gentle that my kids feed him and rub him.
4. Roan Mountain. After a few days of decompression at the cottage, we love to head up to Carvers Gap and hike the Appalachian Trail. We take a kite and a picnic. Gorgeous views.
5. The owners are so nice and helpful. Each time we've been there, Roger has brought over treats like homemade apple butter and scones.
Tips...bring all your groceries with you. You will not find a large grocery store nearby.
Bring water shoes, nets for catching critters, small floating toys (put them in at the top of creek and catch at bottom in net), sunscreen, kite, board games, a jacket for the top of Roan bc it's cold and windy.
So, if you want to getaway from it all and have some peace and quiet...you can't go wrong at the Toobie Hole. I hope you fall in love with this place like our families has!
