About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Studio 2 bdrm (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Welcome to Wicklow Woods! We have designed our large 10 acre+ property for families and groups looking to stay in extremely clean and tastefully appointed lodging. There are steams, ponds, waterfalls, distant views of the mountains without ever leaving Wicklow. Between our Wicklow Cottage and Wicklow Studio, we can accommodate up to 14 people. The cottage will accommodate 10 persons and upto 3 persons in the separate available studio. Happy to consider any combination to fit your requirements.

If your dream is escaping to the North Carolina Mountains, we are nestled in a quiet cove surrounded by beautiful mountains, minutes from downtown Andrews, NC. You will find that while staying with us in Wicklow Woods, enjoyment , peace and serenity that can only be found in the Mountains of the Carolinas. And just minutes away from our Andrews, NC cottage, you can enjoy mountain biking, golf, fly fishing, horseback riding, scenic drives & walks, shopping, and white water rafting adventures on the nearby Ocoee or Nantahala rivers. Our close proximity to many of major attractions, such as the Cherokee Nation Reservation and the Great Smokey Mountain National Park makes our location desirable for families looking to pack their week long vacation full of activities.

Wicklow is an Andrews, North Carolina getaway that combines the amenities of a bed and breakfast with the privacy of cabin lodging. The decoration is somewhat shabby chic and upscale cabin lodging. We often get comments about the high quality of the furnishings, bedding and linens. People feel immediately comfortable! (please see the feedback and comments from people) You will find a mini library and plenty of games to entertain yourself or the kids! We recently added a new horse shoe pit, enlarged the stocked fishing pond, added a 10ft high waterfall that empties into a wading pool with sandy beach. We have miniature goats with brand new baby goats in the pasture along side the miniature donkeys.

The cottage has a spacious feel with 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, and 2 family rooms featuring large flat panel cable TV with DVD. Sunshine fills the upstairs living area by day, and the large stone fire pit and Adirondack chairs afford cozy nights by the fire. The fully equipped kitchen features oven, stove, refrigerator, large microwave, dishwasher, toaster, coffeemaker and additional small appliances. The antique farmhouse dining table with handmade bench and Windsor style chairs can seat up to eight. You have everything you need to prepare a homemade family feast.

We also recently completed another adjacent vacation unit , the 'studio' that sleeps up to 3 people. It has a queen size bed and sofa. Contact us for studio pricing & pics

About The Owner

I am a licensed Realtor and long time boy scouter / volunteer. I have 5 children, aged 23 to 3. My wife and I love the mountains and the out of doors. I have been experiencing this area for my entire life and created many memories for our children to have and cherish. We currently have 3 donkeys (new baby donkey) , 2 shelties (Mason and Emma) and 2 new miniature goats.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2013

Why The Owner chose Andrews

I purchased this property because it reminded me of Wicklow Ireland. The beautiful mountain backdrop, green gently rolling pasture and water. Water everywhere, streams, springs, branches and ponds. It fit my vision of a private retreat. It is located at the end of the road. At night its dark, very dark. The sky is bright with stars. Many at night we observe shooting stars. Our backyard is 10,000 acres of National forest service land. This is our bit of heaven and we thoroughly enjoy sharing and hosting this experience with others!

What makes this cottage unique

Wicklow Woods is perfectly located for all kinds of activities. On the property we have a wonderfully large fire pit to sit around and enjoy. There are several ponds stocked with fish. We have horse shoe pits and plenty of room to play and run around in the well groomed pasture area. Kids love playing in the mountain stream that flows across Wicklow. Many people take leisurely walks and everyone takes time and visits with the miniature donkeys. Near by there are numerous beautiful walking trails, including the Joyce Kelmer National Forest , which is the last standing virgin forest . There are many rivers and waterfalls within the county that have nice scenic walks. Additionally there are on road or off road Bicycle riding paths. The 'dragons tail' is nationally known for its driving (cars or motorcycles). Our area is known for its world class trout fishing.

Great place for a vacation, nice and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed talking with the owner , Mr. Robin and meeting him and his daughter Daisy. We enjoyed the visit from their pets (Teddy and Emma ). We also enjoyed feeding the farm animals. Our granddaughter and grandson enjoyed the visit from the 3 goats when they were playing at the water fall.

It's a perfect place for the whole family.

We stayed in the cottage which had a relaxing porch that my wife, Shirley enjoyed sitting on in the morning and afternoon. Thanks for a great week.

We would recommend this place to others.

Awesome!

Excellent place to just get away!!

  • 5 of 5

The property is absolutely breathtaking. It's the perfect place for the whole family . It has two beautiful ponds with floats and paddle boards a kids play area horseshoe pit. We brought our out corn hole boards and had plenty of room and privacy. I fell in love with goats and donkeys and don't let me forget the little precious Emma (mini Shelty) that came for a visit. Had a great time rafting and enjoyed just coming back to the house and hanging out by the fire pit . We also got the pleasure of meeting Mr and Mrs Sargent (homeowners) they were the nicest people and they made sure we had we had everything we needed. It was such a wonderful family weekend we will b coming back for sure really soon.

Loved the setting, my family was able to relax with our grand children playing.

  • 4 of 5

It was good. I really enjoyed the front porch. My grandkids and I spent each morning there. I loved the open kitchen to the living area, and our bed was comfortable (really important to Greg and I these days). Robin and his family are very warm and helpful. Loved our overall experience, the property was amazing. The pictures do not capture the beauty of the front porch and fire pit. If there was anything lacking, it was in the small things like light bulbs, old debri on deck, and inadequate old grill. Would we stay there again- absolutely. We had so much fun!

Wonderful peaceful place

  • 5 of 5

The property was very conveniently located for our stay. Lots of outside space for the kids to run and play. The house was plenty big enough for all 4 couples and 3 kids. The owners were more then helpful when we needed light bulbs during our stay (a couple of lamps was blown). Our Kids had a great time playing with the owners daughter in the evenings. Defiantly a repeat trip.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, and large enough for 11 people. We really enjoyed our stay here. There were two den areas, which was great when taking a break. The kitchen was stocked with several items left by the owners, as well as things left by previous guests. When we left, everyone in our party lamented that we could not stay longer.
