True to it's name, the Hummingbird Cottage delighted us with many hummingbird visits! The location is great with easy access to all the area has to offer. The cottage is super clean and very cozy, supplying everything you need for a comfortable stay. It's even nicer than the photos! Don't miss the Lake Lure Flower Bridge and the hike on Bearwallow Mountain. Sarah is a delight as well. Highly recommended!
We enjoyed it very much. How do I get my $100 refund back?
Woodsy. Tidy. Supreme Bargain
My husband and I attended a wedding in Alexander... we found this gem of a get-away based on stellar reviews. They were all accurate. This cabin is polished and stocked. What a happy arrival to see chocolates waiting on the table.
We used our free time to explore this beautiful area...and our down time was just as wonderful. My husband napped in one of the incredibly comfy chairs while I parked myself on my back in the mossy side yard and dozed off completely peaceful.
The shower. Like home. She even had my same shampoo stocked. Getting ready for the wedding in the woods rather than a hotel. Loved it!
We will never stay in a hotel again and can not wait to come back to this little treasure.
Thank you for everything we hoped for!
-my husband (the constant complainer was perplexed to find a single gripe which I thought was a riot. He finally discovered that maybe the toilet paper holder was too low for his height...but really, there is NO downside to this place
Lovely cottage was perfect for our getaway
The house had everything we needed for a stay in the Asheville area. Sarah was a wonderful host and the house was extremely clean. We found it cozy and the view was wonderful. We enjoyed the bit of snow we experienced while in North Carolina. I would highly recommend this property!
Lovely get away location!
The cabin was just what we hoped for, a comfortable spot to hike and enjoy the fall colors. The furnishings were lovely and everything was so very clean and tidy. We would love to come again :)
Perfect for a couple who doesn't need a lot of space
Very clean, perfect amount of space, great location. We enjoyed going to Hickory Nut Gorge and exploring the lovely area by this house. It had a cozy, homey feel. Great for people who like a firm bed!! My only gripe about the house is that the hot water heater is small and will not fill the tub with hot water. Nothing was broken, but I would not recommend a bath simply because you won't get enough hot water.
Sorry about the hot water heater. This is the first complaint I've had about it in the many years I've owned the cottage (over 20). I'm glad you enjoyed your visit!
