About Patty Squires

This is such a beautiful area where my children and I did a lot of camping when they were small. One of my sons settled here after going to UNCA where he met his wife.

He found this property for me, and I bought it just from seeing the photos. There was a small house and two out buildings that he completely rebuilt, and since I love making a warm and welcoming home I decided to rent the 2 out buildings for weekend vacationers.

Patty Squires purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Patty Squires chose Asheville Area

The property is very unique with a large, natural pond and small mountain stream. A dock over the pond, deck surrounding the cabin, and fireside seats and benches provide quaint comfort to enjoy the views and bask in the beauty of the inspiring Blue Ridge Mountains. There is so much tranquility here and yet you are only minutes from downtown Asheville.

What makes this cabin unique

I knew I had made the right decision to retire here from the first time I stepped onto the property. It just felt like the home I had always dreamed of.

Cozy and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We were very comfortable and relaxed in our cabin. The room was clean, bathroom and shower were fantastic. We spent every morning on the deck drinking coffee and enjoying the ducks visiting the pond. Close enough to downtown Asheville and easy access to the Blue Ridge Ridge Parkway make this the perfect spot to stay if you need to get away and unwind. I can't say enough about our experience other than we will stay here again on our next visit to Asheville.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The convenience of everything was wonderful for going out to eat. We really just enjoyed relaxing at the cottage and Patty was just the sweetest. We will be back! Amy & Eric Johnson

Relaxing stay.

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed my weekend at this property. Small pond with porch and dock. Cottage was small, but more than enough room for two. Only drawback was spotty wifi. Will definitely try to stay here next time. I'm in Asheville.

Quite and Peacful

Patti, we enjoyed our stay at the Lily Pad. It was very quiet and peaceful away from the crowds, yet very close to everything we needed. Thanks for the hospitality.

Close to the city, but peaceful

  • 4 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our needs. It was close to Asheville, but far enough away that we were in the forest. This is not a cabin in the backwoods, but your privacy will be protected, and it was quiet at night.
