BOOK EARLY FOR MARCH, 2015 FURNITURE MARKET!

Greensboro Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Near Coliseum, Furniture Market, Airport, Golf, Triad Farmers Market

***** BOOK NOW for the 2015 Figure Skating Championships *****

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.

For liability reasons, this lovely setting is NOT child or teenager friendly (sorry - no exceptions). Also, the ENTIRE PROPERTY is non smoking, not just the cottage.

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).

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

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.

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.

Beautiful property

  • 4 of 5
Beautiful quiet peaceful center in a great location. Very close to the charming town of Kernersville with over 94 eateries, grocery stores, Walmart, Target etc.
The cottage was nicely landscaped around it. Cottage has all the basics. Upstairs and downstairs bathrooms with showers. Kitchen equipped with basics such as toaster, coffemaker, dishes, pots and pans, utensils, microwave, stove with oven and full size refrigerater. Great location for where we visited sites and relatives each day. Visited Replacement China, Greensboro, Thomasville, Old Salem, Mt. Airy, Blue Ridge Mt Parkway, High Point all close by. Recommend The German Restaurant in Yadkinville.

What a fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5
My parents, partner and I stayed here four nights in mid-December. Even in winter the property is lovely, with many birds around the cottage and nearby little ponds. The cottage is much bigger than it appears from the pictures and offered plenty of room for two couples. It was well appointed in terms of basic kitchen and bathroom equipment; the washer and dryer was a real bonus! Lynn is a fantastic host - she's there if and when you need her but not hovering about. I only wished we'd been able to see some of the dog training classes!
