Great view and amenities
My wife and I booked this place for a week and enjoyed the full stay. It was a great stay to have a scenic view in the quiet of the mountains. My wife and I wished we had made it our honeymoon trip instead of traveling to a bustling city since it gave us time to take a break from stress and enjoy each other’s company.
I have already recommended this place to some coworkers and some family and plan to stay again when the leaves start to turn.
The property was great! Clean and comfortable.
Great location, great views
Quiet, well appointed, attention to detail. Great location near Cloudland Canyon (wow!), and surprisingly good restaurants (Canyon Grill, Lookout Mtn Pizza). FYI: There is a steep set of stairs up to the house. This was only a problem because we had a lot of stuff and a dog with bad knees. Otherwise, all good. (PS We are tough "graders"--we don't give 5 stars unless it's perfection...)
Nice peaceful place
Our goal is to provide a homey atmosphere that allows our Guests to escape the stresses of daily life and to leave with a sense of well being. The view & the hot tub are a recipe for success! Hope to see you again!
comfortable and beautiful
After a party in Atlanta celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary, we slipped away to spend some time alone. We couldn't have picked a better place. When we walked through the front door, we saw the panoramic view through the wall of windows. The cottage was cozy and homey, but also had all the amenities. We grilled steaks on their very nice gas grill, and sat on the deck sipping our wine, enjoying the beautiful view, remembering the last 50 years, and planning our future together. We highly recommend this cottage.
Clean and cozy!
Very clean and cozy. Living room seating was limited with a small couch and rocker. Wish there was a loveseat or recliner. The tile floors downstairs didn't lend itself to keeping the downstairs warm as heat rises but the bedroom in the loft kept us warm overnight. Supplies and kitchenware were plentiful. Abundance of towels and miniature toiletries. Overall, since this is the first VRBO we have rented, it has been a positive experience and would recommend this place to friends for a quiet getaway! No need to touch the thermostat or figure out the jacuzzi, all of it ready for us when we arrived! Gas and charcoal grill with supplies available. Seemed very secluded but wasn't! Perfect!!!!
Thank You for being Great Guests! Appreciate the Positive Review! Looking forward to Spring & warmer weather ;0) Miss Gail
