My husband, dog and I rented the Pear Tree Cottage so that could return to some places that we had visited in the past. We enjoyed the cool weather, and the spacious layout of the cottage. We especially liked the walk- in shower and having all of the linens supplied and washed after we left. Walking is difficult for us, so walking up the hill while unloading the car was a challenge, as well as walking the dog on he hillside, but it was so worth it. We loved all of the comforts, T.V, wonderful internet, and washer and drier and foods left behind by other renters that made our stay easier. We needed the space and internet to complete our photo preparations for a conference. We would love to return sometime when we have less baggage to get into the house. Tom and Mary were for accommodating with anything we needed.

Owner's reply:

Thank you Gail for this nice review. We should point out to other guests that the hill Gail refers to is the little path that you see in the photo leading from the garage to the front door, and the "food left by other guests" is actually ketchup, mustard, salt & pepper, herbs etc. We never leave actual food, but thank you again Gail and we're glad you enjoyed your stay.

Our first time staying at the "Cottage" and it certainly will not be our last! Absolutely beautiful inside and out. Cozy and inviting, our trip was extra special with all the amenities that the cabin offered. Books, games, puzzles and more combined with all the comforts of home, made for a memorable trip in the mountains for our family! Laughter and bonding is what we wanted and that is exactly what we did! Memories that will last a lifetime!

Everything was PERFECT! Beautiful cabin, very clean with everthing you could think of! You simply will not find anything near this nice any where around for this price. We were VERY surprised how nice the cabin is when we arrived. The pictures do not do it justice. A big thank you to Tim and Mary.

Excellent weekend - highly recomended

Upon arrival, the cabin was immaculate. The housekeeper did a wonderful job of cleaning every nook and cranny. As mentioned in other reviews, the antique furniture was unique and beautiful. What wasn't mentioned, and what really made our stay, were all of the small details such as:
-salt/pepper and other spices in the cabinet
-dish soap, laundry detergent
-high qualitity linens. The towels and bedding were fantastic!
-doggie door that exits to back (fenced in) deck area
-books, DVDs, board games
-great array of cookware/utensils
-2 sledding discs in the garage area (we definately used these in 1 inch of snow!)

The fireplace was awesome and we lit a fire each night. Tim and Mary did a great job of creating a little community among Pear Tree Cottage visitors and we really felt "at home" during our stay.

The location was awesome because it was in the hills and tucked away, yet only 10 minutes from ASU and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Plan to go back again in warmer weather to kayak down the river. Thanks Tim and Mary for all you've done.

Fantastic Cabin/Great Location

Our family had a great stay @ Pear Tree Cottage. The conveniently located property is clean and well-maintained. The owners are super nice. Looking forward to our next stay!

Tim and Mary,
We loved your cabin and had an amazing week; snow storm and all!
I love the idea of NC in summer and will try to do it this year; you'll be the first to know!

Hi Tim and Mary,
Just wanted to say thank you for allowing us to stay in your cabin this Christmas...we had a great time. It snowed a lot, but the cabin is so conveniently located, no problem! It served our needs perfectly! A very Happy New Year to you both.

We enjoyed our stay at your lovely cabin. Thanks again for providing such a wonderful place to spend our Thanksgiving. Kelly
