About Bob and Georgina Winslow
Georgina and Bob Winslow moved to Hendersonville from Texas in 2015. Georgina loves to garden, and has created a new garden adjacent to The Garden Cottage. It is still a work in progress but she is happy to be in an environment which reminds her of growing up in England. You might see her weeding, watering and planning her next project. Gardening suggestions, thoughts and ideas are always welcome! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do, and that you can take time to wander around and make yourself at home, enjoy the views or sit quietly on the garden bench with a book. Georgie also is a volunteer gardener for the Flat Rock Playhouse. Bob is a website designer mainly for Christian churches and ministries and works from home. We attend, and are active at, Biltmore Church in Hendersonville. We warmly welcome you to The Garden Cottage and would like to make your stay as enjoyable as possible! Please do not hesitate to let us know if there is anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable.
Bob and Georgina Winslow purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Bob and Georgina Winslow chose Laurel Park
After 20 years of raising a family in the heat and humidity in Texas we wanted to move to an area where the climate is cooler and where there are many recreational opportunities. Hendersonville fulfilled all of our desires: mountains, rivers and forest trails, as well as local history, and great shopping and restaurants. So in April 2015 we moved from Houston to Hendersonville and purchased a property where we could easily accommodate visits from our three grown children and their families. When our family is not visiting, we are delighted that other people can enjoy the beauty, the views and the quiet which The Garden Cottage offers. We have loved the lush springs, glorious falls, pleasant summers and temperate winters.

perfect quiet home base
The garden cottage was the perfect home base for a great getaway. The cottage is comfortable, quiet, clean, and well stocked for anything you might need. Bob and Georgina are the best hosts and made us feel at home. Spent every evening on the porch with a glass of wine enjoying the mountain air.
Percect for a romantic getaway!
The owners were responsive and helpful! The cottage was immaculate and in a great location! We drove 30 min on Friday to view the waterfalls at Pisgah and walked around downtown Brevard. On Saturday we spent the day at the Garden Jubilee in downtown Hendersonville (10 min away). And then we drove 40 min into Asheville for dinner. We packed a lot into 2 days because the location was so perfect!
We didn’t get to meet Bob & Georgina but felt their presence in all the nice little touches around the cottage and property. Beautiful gardens and eating breakfast out on the porch listening to the birds was so relaxing.
We’d recommend the Garden Cottage to everyone!!
We can’t say enough wonderful things about our stay. It was clean and quaint and comfortable and they thought of absolutely everything that we would need from spices to toilet paper to pots and pans and a wonderful full-size refrigerator and stove. The washer and dryer were brand new in the bathroom had plenty of space for make up and hair dryers. We loved eating out on the porch with that wonderful view Of the woods. Every the entire property was immaculate and my wife months me to repeat that we had absolutely everything that we needed the owners were so sweet and the owners were very sweet and personable and welcoming and made us feel right at home enjoyable stay. It was such an enjoyable stay we would love to come back again.
