- 30 minutes to Roan Mountain State Park with swimming, tennis, fishing, hiking, picnic'ing'.

- 30 minutes from the top of Roan Mountain - with the world's largest natural display of rhododendron.

-30 minutes from Penland School

- one hour from skiing at Beech and Sugar Mountains in Boone and Blowing Rock.

- one hour from Biltmore House in Asheville

Hidden NC treasure!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 4 nights at this cottage over the 4th of July weekend. The purpose of our little getaway was to escape the Florida heat and to hike the beautiful NC mountains. This cottage was centrally located to several of our hiking spots such as Grandfather mountain, Mt. Mitchell, Linville Falls, and Roan Mt. It was also a relatively short distance to Boone and Blowing Rock which we always enjoy. As for the cottage itself, it was probably the best stocked place we have ever rented. It was very clean, provided lots of space and was situated in a very quiet area. It was very relaxing at night, listening to the little streams while being able to see countless stars along with many fire flies :) A word of advice: unless you are prepared for a 45 minute drive for dinner or lunch, bring as much food as possible for your stay. We knew this cottage was quite a distance from places to eat so we were prepared for it. If you are looking for a serene place that offers proximity to nature, this is your place. Dr. Jenkins was very accommodating and his guide to the area was very helpful. We highly recommend!

Owner's Response: So so happy this fun family got to experience all the fantastic hiking opportunities around. Looks like they found them all. I appreciate the care the family gave the home, they treated it as if it were their own and not everyone does that. We really do pride ourselves on the fact that when you walk into the house, it looks like someone lives there - it doesn't look like a rental home - it is so well stocked! While the guests made a trip to the orchard to get some plums, he experienced a yelllow jacket and so sorry about that. Yellow jackets love orchards!!!!!! Hope they will come again, and again!

Owner's Response: This family traveled to this area to spend Thanksgiving with family members. I have a lot of guests who do have family in the area and need a home-away-from-home stay. Great guests and took care of the home as if it were their own. Hope to see them again.

We wanted to get away for a long weekend, and this turned out to be the perfect spot. It's an easy drive to many tourist and sight seeing places. The scenery at the cottage is great. The deck out back is relaxing, and two young deer came to visit us every morning and evening. They liked the acorns under the tree. Roger was great to work with.

Owner's Response: Sadly, I didn't get to meet this young couple, although I did manage to have six huge freshly baked chocolate chip cookies waiting for them upon arrival. Happy to see they met and fell in love with Dancer and Prancer! The deer love the apples and pears from the small orchard on the property! Unfortunately, they also like to nibble on my rasberry and blackberry bushes!

Cottage at Toobie Hole Falls

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Would have loved to try the fishing, but the weather wasn't very cooperative and we had such a short time to visit. The Appalachian Trail is very close by, just up past the Mountain Grill a couple miles at the Tennessee State line. The cottage is well equipped and very comfortable with any amenities you might need or want. We hope to return before too long!

Owner's Response: Yes, the guests are correct, there are two entry points to the Appalachian Trail within 10 minutes of the Cottage! And the THIRD entry point is 30 minutes away on the Roan Mountain which has so so so many other wonderful hiking opportunities as well. Great trout fishing close by as well.

Our family has had the pleasure of staying at the cottage at the Toobie Hole numerous times. We love the backyard and the deck has been our gathering spot for family evening meal times. We love the area and it's beautiful views. Roger the owner of he Toobie Hole is such a pleasure to work with. Tony his brother is always ready to help in anyway needed. We feel very much at home there and recommend it highly.

My wife and I stayed at the Cottage at Toobie Hole Falls in July, 2015 for our anniversary. It was relatively convenient to Roan Mountain and the Toe River, which were our planned excursions while there. The cottage itself is a very well restored and appointed 3-bedroom home, what my wife called a "Happy Granny" cottage - the kind of place you might remember from your childhood. Indeed, the hallway is extra-large, as though there were once a floor furnace there (which I have vivid memories of from long ago). We particularly enjoyed the deck in the back over the brook. It was a wonderful place to have breakfast!

One thing to note - the location map on VRBO suggests the cottage is directly north of Penland, but it is actually 20 minutes farther up 226, not all that far from the Tennessee border. It's a full 30 minutes from Spruce Pine. The house is fairly close to the highway, but we didn't have any problem with highway noise.

Owner's Response: We continue to be so fortunate to have exceptionally nice people rent the Cottage. This couple was celebrating their 37th wedding anniversary, and couldn't have been nicer and left the cottage in pristine condition as if it were their own home. Yes, everyone loves to have breakfast, coffee, lunch, dinner, or coffee at the table/chairs on the deck overlooking the babbling brook at the back of the house. Quiet, peaceful and nature all to one's self. There are blackberries and raspberries below the Cottage that guests can enjoy in season.
