CHAPEL VIEW COTTAGE - COZY COMFORT ON THE APPALACHIAN TRAIL

Hot Springs Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Hike the Appalachian Trail and stop at Chapel View Cottage to rest comfortably in this cozy, well equipped cottage. Cool your heels on the stone and wood porch beneath the exterior ceiling fan, or come in from the cold and rain outside to warm-up inside.

Whether you arrive by hiking or driving, you can then leisurely stroll to the town of Hot Springs to enjoy fine dining, galleries, library and the spa located on the historic grounds of the old Warm Springs Hotel.

Spotlessly clean and 'green' inside, with custom woodwork throughout, the cottage features exuberant, sunny, fenced cottage gardens.

Suitability:
  • not suitable for children
  • non smoking only
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • pets considered

We are a musician and artist married for 35 years. Husband is a native of western North Carolina from a large family of sons and a Vietnam veteran. Wife is from a large French-Irish family who has lived in several countries and traveled the world. We both make our living in Knoxville, Tennessee, as self-employed contractors and get over to Hot Springs as often as we can.

Melanie Prater purchased this cottage in 1996

On trips through the mountains many years ago we were captivated by the area of Warm/Hot Springs. We finally found a small place to renovate and have been here ever since. For many years our extended families and numerous friends were the main visitors. We are now delighted to add guests from all over the world to that number. Guestbooks in the cottage detail some of our visitors' experiences.

Known locally as 'Granny Cody's House,' today Chapel View is cozy, comfortable and authentic in every respect. The historic Jesuit Retreat House across the way from Chapel View is now under new management with the name of Laughing Heart Lodge. The people of Hot Springs welcome visitors and celebrate their community. The public library and elementary school are essential to the sustainability and charm of this good community.

COZY COTTAGE

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at Chapel View last weekend for a wedding. It was perfect for my husband, two teenage daughters and myself. The cottage was spotlessly clean, plenty of towels and beautifully decorated. My oldest daughter LOVED the piano and the youngest the huge collection of movies. Hope to return to hike the AT.

PLEASANT STAY

  • 5 of 5
Arrived for the French Broad River Music Festival and stayed 2 nights with our 19 yr old daughter. We were comfortable and cozy and enjoyed our stay very much. We did not feel up to camping so this was a very affordable alternative. Thank you for such a nice cottage to share. The flowers weren't in bloom yet over the top, but imagine it is even more lovely when in bloom.

Owner's Response: I knew you would love the location of Chapel View Cottage, so cozy yet an easy walk to town and the festival site. We invite you and your family to visit our property again when you have another weekend or even longer!

QUAINT AND COMFORTABLE!

  • 5 of 5
This place was perfect for my husband, I, and our American Bulldog. We arrived on Christmas Day, so there was not much open in the way of restaurants, but the town more than made up for it the next day! We LOVED the ENDLESS options of movies and books (don't watch the 25th Hour...terrible movie!). We snuggled up together and had a wonderful time. Lover's Leap is the perfect trail for those looking for a quick (1 hour) hike with their pup! We will absolutely return!

CUTE LITTLE COTTAGE - MY WIFE AND DAUGHTER LOVED IT.

  • 5 of 5
We stopped in the library to ask directions to the Chapel View Cottage and they told us. We were pleasantly surprised to discover it is literally feet from the AT. The first day we hiked south on the AT up to the ridge and came back before we reached the first shelter to eat at the Smokey Mtn. Diner. Enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub after that hike. The next day we hiked north on the AT up to lovers leap and looped back on the Silver mine trail. We got back just as the rain let loose and holed up in an ice cream/ coffee shop / place next to the iron horse restaurant and had a really good americano coffee and interesting conversation with the barrister. We watch a couple of movies at the cottage and slept comfortably. I hope to come back again and will recommend the cottage to our friends.

My husband and I stayed in the north side and it was perfect. No TV was great! Lots of DVDs if needed but we just read books and hiked. Very clean and a great shower too. The bed was comfy and even tho there were no blinds on the windows we still slept in... The hikes helped I'm sure. Looked out the window and there was the AT! Ate at the smokey mountain diner and it was delicious. Hope we can make it back... Very relaxing.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know you enjoyed your stay. We had never thought about blinds for the windows in the bedroom because they look out on the beautiful mountains and trees and are so high in elevation that there is no concern about privacy.
But you are right to alert us that the light could rouse a sleepy traveler and so we'll look into adding them as an option. Like you, we suspect that most guests sleep so well that the dawning light does not wake them. Come back again and happy hiking!
During this stay the property was under previous owner or management.
