Lovely, charming, delightful!
November 13, 2012
My husband and I just got back from Grandview Mountain Cottages. We stayed 2 nights in the Honeysuckle cottage. It was very clean, amply furnished, very cute and cozy. The beds are soft and comfortable, though if you're a couple used to sleeping on a queen or king, the bed will feel small. The surroundings are very quiet and peaceful. All the amenities are delightful, both practical and charming. Though it rained a full day during our stay, we weren't put out, because we could go out and enjoy the screened-in porch and were content by the wood-burning fireplace. When it cleared up at night, we were able to enjoy the amazing night sky from the hot tub on the deck! The owners are courteous and thoughtful and have obviously spent a great deal of time making sure that everything is just right for guests. We had a welcome basket brimming over with local, handmade goods waiting for us, and the pizza and cookies made by "Papa Phil" were delicious! We plan on making this an annual retreat. My only slight complaint was that since guests are allowed to bring pets, there was some extraneous cat and dog hair, which was a bit bothersome to my allergies. Though the cottage was very clean and tidy, it's impossible to get all pet hair removed. That won't keep me from returning, though. If you have kids and prefer your kids to sleep in a separate walled-in room from you, the Honeysuckle is not the best cabin option since there's really just one main accessible bedroom and the loft is not ideal for young children. I think the other cabin would be better. But Honeysuckle was perfect for a couple and would be great for a solo retreat as well. The grounds are expansive and beautiful, and I hope that next time we visit the weather will permit us a bit more exploring. We also really appreciated the owners' emphasis on local, organic products and offerings, as well as the option to recycle. It is a very well-rounded business. I wholeheartedly recommend this vacation spot!
