Andrews Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Inground Pool and Jacuzzi

This lovely cottage, nestled in the Nantahala National Forest, has 2400 sq ft of indoor space and nearly 3000 sq ft of outdoor deck space. It has 3 bedrooms; 2 of which have their own private bathrooms. The master bedroom also hosts a gas fireplace and garden tub for those looking for that romantic getaway. Downstairs is a 1/2 bath off from the kitchen. The down stairs sofa converts into a queen sleeper for extra guests or children. This cottage has real hand hewn beams and knotty pine floors throughout. There are antique stained glass windows in several areas of the home. The décor in this unique home is that of a country cottage with rustic old world charm. It is not your typical 'vacation rental' in the mountains. You will not find Bear décor here. This home includes free WI-FI and free domestic long distance calling (no international calling). There is also a library with a large book selection, and a sunroom with 5 sliding glass doors which you can open on those beautiful sunny days.

If you want to spend time outdoors, the options are endless. You can take a dip in the in-ground salt water pool, soak in the 6 person Jacuzzi, relax by the outdoor fireplace, cook lunch on the gas grill, or take a much needed nap in one of the 2 over sized hammocks. We even keep a jar in the kitchen so you can catch fireflies with your children. We want your stay to be fun, relaxing, and most of all memorable.

Note: We only rent this home for 9 months out of the year so please book your vacation as soon as possible, as reservations fill quickly. We offer 4 months with access to the pool and 5 months without the pool at a cheaper rate.

About Tim & Sandy Osborne

My husband and I live in Summerville, SC (15 minutes north of Charleston, SC). We both work full time and have 2 wonderful kids. Dylan is 20 and Katelyn is 13. I work as an Office Administrator and my husband is a Maintenance Reliability Planner. We live a short drive from the beach but prefer the peace and comfort of the mountains.

Tim & Sandy Osborne purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Tim & Sandy Osborne chose Andrews

We vacationed so much in the mountains; we decided to buy our own place. We stumbled on this place in Nov 2011. It was not in the best condition when we found it but we knew it had a lot of potential. We’ve put a lot of sweat and tears into fixing up this place from what it once was, but it has been well worth it. We've overhauled the pool, replaced the jacuzzi, replaced the roof, painted inside and out, redecorated, etc, etc.... Each improvement has made this place a little more like a slice of Heaven.

We are so happy to be able to share this special place that our friends call “magical”. We welcome you and your family to our home. We hope you’ll make many happy memories and our home your vacation tradition.

What makes this cottage unique

There are so many unique things about this place. Yes, the pool and hot tub are new and very nice but there is so much more to this place. It is nestled in the mountains and trees and once there, you forget about the rest of the world. Almost all the windows are stained glass and are very old. The floors are knotty pine and the ceiling features authentic hand hewn beams. There are many cozy spots inside and out of this home. It's decorated with many antique items that will take you back in time. It's only a few minutes to the local grocery store and other attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home is so beautiful with so many special touches. Even our 2 month old son was fascinated by so many different things, but he especially loved the tree behind the couch. We enjoyed our stay very much and hope to be back one day. Thank You!!

We recommend this house to anyone who wants to get away and relax! It is a very well thought out, comfortable place to stay with very pretty decorating! There is alot to do and see in the area. The hot tub is fantastic but do wished the pool heater worked, much to cold to swim in Sept. and was looking forward to it. The pool is very nice and big!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay. We currently have the pool heater disconnected because it's not cost effective to operate. It's hard to determine the weather for September. Sometimes it's really hot, sometimes it's cooler. We are looking into other alternatives to keep the pool water warmer. We hope you keep us in mind for your future vacations. Thank you!

Had a fantastic vacation at Hemlock Knoll. This was our 2nd time staying there. The house and property were immaculate again. The owners, Tim and Sandy, are the nicest people you will ever meet. We will be returning next year. My wife and I have talked and plan to make Hemlock Knoll a yearly vacation for the family. There are so many things to do, close by, for all ages. See you next year Hemlock Knoll!

I've never felt so comfortable in a vacation rental until Hemlock Knoll. Owners were great and so accommodating from start to finish. House is beautiful and well kept. Kids enjoyed the pool and especially the Wi-Fi. I highly recommend and can't wait to go back!

We had a great time staying at Hemlock Knoll. The house was lovely and even better than it appears on the site. The kitchen was fully stocked even with a crockpot! I never looked for anything I needed in the kitchen that I could not find. This is an excellent place to spend a low-key sort of vacation. My son is already talking about going back!

We've visited this area multiple times, and this was by far our best experience! We played pool, relaxed by the outdoor fireplaces, grilled out, tried to count the dozens of tadpoles, saw luna moths, and simply enjoyed our family! The hot tub is a great way to relax after spending a few hours in the cold waters of the Nantahala. This home is extremely well appointed and it's location is perfect for rafting, riding, or visiting local towns while remaining private for relaxing. The wifi is easily accessed and appreciated for staying in touch. The area in general has poor cell service, but the wifi and free calling kept us connected. The owners were quick and exact to address any issue/question/concern. Only one small issue that was caused by a storm prior to our arrival and was fixed in a matter of minutes and with only a single call. We have already booked our next stay. This is by far one of the best ways to enjoy the area! Can't wait to return!
