WE LOVE IT !
A couple of girlfriends and I had a "Girls week out" and stayed at this place for a week and loved every minute of it!, None of us wanted to come home to the hustle bustle city life of Atlanta! It is only a couple hours of easy drive from Atlanta, a very cute place to get away too. On one of our many day trips while there, we went over to the "Crane Creek Winnery" about 20 minutes away, it was a beautiful place, got some of the best wine we ever tasted, relaxed in front of the fire pit that evening and talked girl talk. The next day we went to the little Bavarian town know as "Helen", in Ga, just 30 minutes away, and we spent the day shopping in all the little shops there, stopped on the way back and had dinner at the " Deer Lodge" , oh my gosh, best steak we ever put in our mouths!, but you better get there early, as there is about a 30 minute wait to get in. We also went over to Tn., and spent a day there. This is one of the many attractions to us with this place, you are in North Carolina, but can go to North Ga., in 15 minutes, or on over to Tn in about an hour and a half., so we enjoyed all three states while there! The next time we go, we plan to go over to Pigeon Forge and "DollyWood" on one of our day trips as well.
We had a blast, and intend to go back soon!, we decided that we all deserve a get away like this now and then!
The little house was tidy and comfortable, but yet roomy enough to be comfortable. We enjoyed the many attractions in the area, and the little town is so quaint and friendly! It is like Carol says, so much like Mayberry, haha, we even went to one of the little country stores that had a sign with Barney Fife, and the sign said "This area protected by Barney Fife", the Andy Griffith fans can appreciate that.
We spent a lot of time on the front porch in the swing relaxing and reading some of the many magazines that Carol leaves for the guest. We especially enjoyed the "Remenisce" magazines she had their for the guest's enjoyment.
We had made the trip before and stayed in a motel, never again!, this was so much nicer than any motel and even cheaper!
I would recommend this place to anyone, we plan another "Girl's day out" this fall, and guess where we are going!?, you better believe it!, to that little place on Double Knobs mountain, on Downing Creek Lane!, better known as "Mountain Hide Away" !!
