***** BOOK NOW for the 2015 Figure Skating Championships & March 2015 Furniture Market *****

Best suited for mature, non smoking adults. Sorry, NO CHILDREN (0-18) or long term rentals. 4 person maximum. NO EXCEPTIONS!

A world unto it's own, yet close to everything. Laughing Brook Cottage is a 2 bed/2 bath cottage in a nature lover's setting on just under 10 acres. Gated property in the woods with a fabulous central location.

It is less than 20 minutes to the furniture district, Greensboro Coliseum, several golf courses and events, the famous Piedmont Triad Farmers Market, and more. Historic Winston Salem is about 15-20 minutes from here. The amazing Hanging Rock State Park is only 28 miles away! Pilot Mountain is 39 miles and the Blue Ridge Parkway is close enough for a day trip.

All the creature comforts are in this charming cottage, including cable TV in the great room and both bedrooms and WiFi throughout. The 2nd bedroom is up a spiral staircase. It has an attached bath and has it's own private balcony with a gorgeous view of nature. Across the creek from the cottage is our very own nature preserve area with ponds and streams.

ENTIRE PROPERTY is non smoking.

Small dogs will be considered subject to rules which will be provided before booking. Dogs belonging to students of Creekside Canines are always welcome.

The owners reside in the main house which is across the driveway. In the lower meadow, the owner holds dog agility classes. These classes are of short duration and should not effect your stay in the cottage. A special rental rate is available to students of Creekside Canines.

Please no inquiries for parties or gatherings. Maximum number of guests is 4. No inquiries for long term rentals (maximum stay is 2 weeks - minimum 2 nights).

There is a virtual 'dog walk' tour video on YouTube - you will not have access to all of the areas shown but most. Copy the following link (web site doesn't allow direct links):

About Lynn Brodie

I am a canine sports enthusiast and I train dogs and their owners to run obstacle courses in the sport of agility. I'm from California originally but came here after spending 15 years in the Florida Keys (great to visit, not so much to live)!

I was raised on the Old Mother West Wind stories and this property brought back wonderful memories of those stories. I could just see Grandfather Frog lounging on a lily pad in one of the ponds watching all the other little forest creatures like Peter Rabbit, Reddy Fox, Jimmy Skunk, Billy Muskrat and the rest. The side of the property that the cottage is on, is dedicated to those memories and is our own private nature preserve. Guests are welcome and encouraged to stroll in the area, take photos and just enjoy the beauty of nature.

Lynn Brodie purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Lynn Brodie chose Greensboro

I'd been looking at property in the area for three years and fell in love with this place right off the bat. It was a private hidden yet close to everything. The former owner actually let me stay in the cottage with 3 dogs for a week! I had to sell my house in the Florida Keys in a horrid market but luckily for me, the owners' other offers fell through one by one and eventually I was the lucky buyer! And the former owner and I became good friends as an additional bonus.

Perfect getaway cottage!

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was the perfect spot to stay. It was very spacious and comfortable. Beautiful setting with grounds and paths for walking. Centrally located to Greensboro, High Point, and Winston-Salem, which all have many attractions to see. Lynn and Greg are wonderful hosts. We hope to visit again soon!

Amazing Place!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing secret hideaway this cottage is. You would never guess a place like this exists - so private and yet so close to everything! The cottage is very comfortable with everything you need. And what a nature lover's paradise. We saw deer come through the lawn off the porch. We loved watching the birds at the feeders and the sound of frogs in the ponds at night lulled us into sleep. It was great being so close to everything we needed to do in Greensboro and Winston Salem and such a joy to come home to this story book setting. We can't wait to return!

Nice Place to Get Away

  • 4 of 5
This was a comfortable little cottage - just as described. It was just right for our friends getaway weekend (two couples). The cottage is located in a pretty, quiet country setting, but not too far from everything. We visited the local farmers market and found many local specialties. The owner was very helpful and easy to work with. We would definitely recommend this home to others, and encourage you to visit the market as well.

Great Relaxing Quiet Country Retreat

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a safe, clean, comfortable, quiet cottage to relax, you should consider Laughing Brook Cottage.
Both bedrooms contained comfortable queen beds and a full bathroom. The kitchen was fully equipped with all of the essentials..
We enjoyed the ferns, creek, and woods while walking around the gated grounds There are several small ponds on the property that can be accessed from moss covered paths. We enjoyed sitting on the porch with coffee in the morning and watching the blue birds and cardinals. The hummingbird feeder on the porch also attracted several visitors for us to enjoy. We liked going to sleep with the frogs croaking at night.
Even though you feel you are way out in the country, you are really pretty close to the main attractions. We bought furniture in Jamestown at Furnitureland South. We enjoyed some spectacular views while driving on the Blue Ridge Parkway about two hours from the house. We also liked our visit to historic Old Salem.
Lynn, the owner is very nice and friendly. While we were there, she shared some of her garden vegetables with us. She also surprised us with two additional chairs and a table so that all four of us could sit on the porch together. We would be glad to visit again and would recommend this cottage.

Quiet and charming

  • 5 of 5
Lovely respite. The cottage was well appointed and tidy. Unseasonably warm which made the upper bedroom a bit stuffy but the ceiling fan was helpful with circulation. Host were warm and welcoming. Available but most respectful of privacy. Would certainly recommend.

Owner's Response: Suellen, my apologies for not responding sooner (I actually thought I had but that was via direct email). I wanted to thank you again for your thank you note and your lovely gift. I only wish I could put a picture of it here. For anyone reading this, Suellen left us a beautiful hummingbird plate because it reminded her of the many hummingbirds at the feeder next to the cottage. We loved having you here and we welcome you and your family back any time.
