My husband and I are both engineers. We have 2 children. It took us 2 years with some contract help to renovate the cottage. Photo of our family with our dog. We love the outdoors. We love to share the outdoors and our home with others.
The Owner purchased this cottage in 2007
We live close by. We wanted to be able to use Lake Sheila for swimming and fishing. Lake Sheila is a private lake. Perfect for swimming. Clear water. We enjoy building and preserving peace.
Peace, wildlife, camping feel without other tents around and all the nice amenities of a home. Lots of fish in the lake. No motor boats allowed. Perfect for swimming. Clear water.

Frank and I had such a restful visit. The cabin is wonderful, and the patio/firepit was where we sat the most!
Sumudge loved the woods! Walking through the leaves. We thank you for a real rest.

Our family came to the cottage Jan 2-5th 2014. When we arrived the place was ready for us- we brought our stuff into the cabin and were just able to RELAX! The cottage has EVERYTHING! They really thought of everything- from a gaming system for the kids to keep them busy, to shampoo, toiletries, to even coffee and creamer! WE enjoyed EVERY second of our time! We are even coming back in June! This will definitely be our go-to cabin/cottage when we're in the area. It's centrally located to SO much! Thank you for opening your cottage up to us! We can't wait to come back!
Beth went above and beyond in letting us have the cabin for New Year's Eve! It's hard to find someone to rent from for only one night, much less someone who will email you with a cancellation. As always, the cabin was spotless, homey and inviting. I don't think we moved from in front of the fire except to go to bed. I can't wait until our next trip!
We were very happy with the cabin and its amenities. It is very private and comfy. The best part is the outside patio with the fire pit. My boys, 7 and 9, love building fires and making s'mores here. We also enjoyed using the woodburning stove inside. We loved the little town of Saluda and even made a trip to Skytop Orchard to pick apples. It is just a short drive away. Pearson's Falls is also somewhere not to miss. Beth was super helpful with any information to make our stay more enjoyable. We would return.
Perfect location and atmosphere for a wonderful getaway. We could not have asked for any place more perfect to relax and recharge. The house is so comfortable and welcoming and we felt right at home from the moment we walked in the door. The outdoor area was our absolute favorite and the weather was perfect for late afternoon fires and nighttime stargazing. Beth was awesome to work with and we hoped to meet her and her family during our stay; maybe next time. We have already recommend this property to several of our friends. We hope to visit again very soon!
We had a wonderful time once again! The only problem we had was leaving :-) The leaves were just starting to turn and the view was beautiful. The cabin was lovely - as always - it every provision we needed. Thanks for the extra firewood...but it was so warm, we didn't need it! Can't wait to come back again!
We loved the Harris Cottage! It's the perfect size, completely comfortable and cozy. The location is great, on the top of the hill, surrounded by large trees, away from any traffic noises allowing for excellent bird watching and relaxing. The front porch is a treat, the stone patio is amazing. The Harris Family is extremely kind and did a really great job renovating the cottage. Our dog Chester had the best time too...thank you for allowing dogs!
