Skiing trip

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Ada's cottage. The beds and pillows were super comfortable. The kitchen was fully equipped. The house was clean and very comfortable. The kids loved the circular stairs. The owners are lovely and very responsive. We will be back soon!

Repeat stay at this lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

This was our second stay at Ada's cottage. We had a delightful experience (again) and will consider staying again if we visit the area.

The kitchen is fully stocked; the rooms are cozy and comfortable. The living area is a great space for family fun. The sofa bed is a great extra.

Very pleased with Ada's Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

We spent a weekend at Ada's Cottage in November 2016. The cottage was cozy and clean. We dined locally and enjoyed each place that we selected. Friday was the prettiest day, which was also our day of arrival. We were able to visit downtown Blowing Rock however a lot of the shops were already closed by the time we arrived. *(Note to future visitors---get there early!) We were excited to receive word from Lonnie on Thursday that we could check in earlier than normal check in time (most hotels will not give you that option); due to our traveling distance we were able to check in a little earlier. We loved the fact that it was a keyless entry at the cottage, no need to keep up with extra keys or go by an office to pick them up. The only reasons we give 4 stars instead of 5 are because there is no air downstairs (there is a heater) and Friday night we could have used some. Also, we would have loved to have had a gas fire pit to make use of the beautiful open yard while taking in the scenery at the cottage. Thank you again for opening up your home to us, we would definitely rent it again!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post a response. I regret the downstairs was too warm when you arrived. Normally this is not a problem except this time of year when the leaves have fallen and the heating and air is set to heat. Heat rises and in the summer when the AC is on the downstairs area remains cool. In the Fall we have the heat on, as one day it maybe in the 70s and that evening it could fall to the 20s. The large window in the downstairs bedroom is shaded in the summer months but in the fall the leaves fall from the trees and the angle of the sun drops. Heat gain from the sun is both a problem on a warm day and a blessing on a cold winter day.

Enjoyed Our Stay

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week at Ada's Cottage. It's in a quiet, convenient location just a short drive across 321 to Main St. in Blowing Rock. The large windows upstairs provide a pleasant view of the yard and mountains beyond. The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen well-appointed, and even had access to Pandora and Netflix through the DVD/TV. Enjoyed sitting out on the deck in the morning and early evening, having breakfast, reading or just relaxing in the breeze that often came through.
