Cottage by the Pond

It was wonderful, we had everything we needed and then some. I just wish I had been able to stay longer. I would recommend this to anyone. Mrs. Ginger is a very sweet person. I will be going back.

Wonderful in every way

Nestled deep on 20 acres, this cottage has everything you could ask for. My family and our dog were very comfortable. My three boys explored the property all weekend and my wife caught 10 fish. (i caught two) Everything is very well kept. Pond,fire pit, and shear space gave everyone enough room to do what ever we wanted. The paddle boat for the pond was used everyday, Thank you Mrs. Ginger ,for your hospitality and wonderful cabin. We will return for sure!

vacation with grandsons

The place was cozy, clean, easy to access other sites in the Blowing Rock area. Very comfortable. The pond with the paddle boat, and fishing poles provided were appreciated. The fire pit and stone built BBQ were a big hit with all of us. We will definetly stay there again!!

Perfect location!

This cottage was the perfect location for our long weekend. It's convenient to Grandfather Mountain where we attended the Highland Games and it's also just a few minutes from downtown Blowing Rock which has great options for shopping and restaurants. The cottage is very clean and comfortable. If you're into fishing, you are all set. The pond is close to the house and fishing gear is supplied. There are also several outdoor areas for just sitting and relaxing or playing horseshoes. The front porch is also a relaxing place to sit and read or just enjoy the view. We hope to return again sometime for a winter excursion of snow tubing! .

Cottage By The Pond

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the cottage! It was everything we hoped for and more. The grandkids loved catching frogs and fireflies. We were totally relaxed and caught up in the magical surroundings. Can't wait to visit again!

Magical relaxing place to vacation.

For a couple of weeks before our trip , I reviewed various housing options in the Blowing Rock area and found the "Cottage by the Pond". Definitely turned out to be the best place to stay in the area. The description provided by the owners is incredibly accurate; there were no surprises and many extras. All pictures are up to date. Would recommend on initially finding this place that you make the time to do it during sun light hours. Ginger's directions were very accurate, but it might be a little hard to find in the dark. Ginger did everything and then some to make our 3 night vacation pleasant and relaxing. Will definitely visit in the spring and fall this year.

Pleasant stay, even in winter conditions.

What I thought would be a late fall vacation turned into a winter wonderland by Hurricane Sandy. It was a bit hard to maintain a consistent temperature with the propane-fueled heater, however the cabin was warm enough in freezing weather. We enjoyed our stay quite a bit - did a lot of hiking around the area, our dogs loved romping around the pond. We found everything we needed in the cabin, which was in good condition - and Ginger even gave us a snow shovel to clear the walk! Very peaceful, lovely setting and close to Blowing Rock, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and Boone. Lots to see and do. Thanks, Walkers!

A Great Place to Get Away!

This was our second year to visit the Cottage by the Pond, and we came later in the season to see some of the fall colors. As usual, the visit was delightful. We did a good deal of hiking and our Great Danes loved the open space and cooler temps. Bob and Ginger have a wonderful little place, and we look forward to returning.

Coming later in October.

We had rented this property for Sept. 21 thru Sept. 28, but my husband was in the hospital and we had to cancel. I have recheduled our trip to the property for October 23rd - Oct. 30th.

Fourth Stay

Perfect as usual. Beautiful setting, interesting area, lots to do. Cottage very well equipped and comfortable. Accepts dogs which is a plus and the fire pit and grill are top notch!

Such a Great Place!

My wife and I, along with our 2 dogs had a great time at the cabin. It is only 3.5 miles from downtown Blowing Rock but feels secluded. The cabin has all the accommodations you need. The pond was great too! We caught 10-15 bass. We had a great time visiting Boone, Blowing Rock, and the parkway. But you could honeslty never leave the property and have a fantastic time! We will definitely be back!

Little Piece of Heaven!

I rented the little cottage for my husbands birthday... he loves to fish! He, our son, our K-9 son, and I could not have been more pleased! Everything was beautiful and very peaceful. There was so much there to enjoy, we never left the cottage! We fished, took a peaceful walk on the trails, and pitched horse shoes during the day, and sat around the wonderful fire pit at night. The conversations were priceless! We made memories that will last always! I am so very grateful to Ms. Ginger for allowing us the use her little piece of heaven by the pond. Can't wait to book again!

Nice little cottage

The cottage is very nice and well maintained. The immediate property surrounding it is quite lovely and the fire pit and pond are a nice attraction. We hiked a little bit on the trail behind the cottage and enjoyed our hike so much we wished it were longer. Disappointments for us was the proximity (view) of other houses and we also had a difficult time finding the driveway to the property (Note: we did arrive in darkness). This cottage is perfect if you are looking for an all inclusive (never leave the property) stay near Blowing Rock or if you want to adventure and enjoy the sites near by. I was looking for more seclusion so that is the only reason why I rated my experience a 3 instead of a 5. Also of note, the owners are extremely kind and are the perfect type of owners to rent out a cottage such as this.

Perfect spot

We spent five wonderful days this time! The beauty of the area is a wonderful backdrop for this charming and well appointed cottage. Crisp sheets, warm bedding, a very well equipped kitchen and bath make this property all you could wish for. The owners allow dogs, which is a great thing. The pond, fire pit, picnic table and gas grill makes outdoor festivities a pleasure, and the privacy is welcome! We'll be back!!! Again and again!!!

Wonderful Retreat!!!

This is the very best retreat you'll ever visit! The cottage is adorable, spotless and very comfortable. The pond is loaded with fish and there's even a paddle boat for your pleasure. There have been updates that are different than the pictures. You won't be disappointed ... at all! ENJOY!!!

Had a wonderful time!!

We stayed 9 nights at the cottage and had a great time. We drove up from Oralndo and met my father from Kansas and my brother from Asheville. Our daughters loved the fiahing and the paddle boat - the whole country side probably heard their whoops of delight when they caught a fish!! We did some siteseeing at Grandfather mountain, panned for minerals and the girls and my brother did some white ater rafting!! The cootage was a perfect location and we had had wonderful week playing and relaxing in the cool mountian air!!

Best fishing ever

I cannot stress how wonderful your cottage is! I second all the other reviews . My review is about fishing. Wow, plenty of hybrid bluegill, largemouth and at least one catfish! Hubby caught a really big cat, about 10 pounds, 40 inches (released back). But, when he caught something else later, using the same rod and reel, well, when he tried to bring in this even bigger biggie, the rod broke! Must be bigger than the cat, or that reel gave up its ghost at that time! The first fish I caught about 1/2 hour after arriving was about a 12" bass, followed by two more within an hour! The bluegill were all about a pound or so, and plenty of white meat from the 2 we kept. We released all the rest of our catches. We did try to go fish at 2 of the local park type lakes and only caught some small sunfish, less than 1/8 pound. Had to hurry back to where the fish are and we enjoyed every second of our stay. I have to say this was the cleanest and well kept vacation rental we ever visited. Thank you so very much for caring about your tenants! P.S. We were going to leave 'Chunk' tied up for your son because she prefers the weather in the mountains to this coastal oven, but decided it would probably be a bad idea! Amazingly comfortable temperatures, awoke most mornings to about 60 to 65 degrees! Thank you, again.

Best cottage ever!

This property is fabulous. Everything you need and more. We spent lots of time relaxing in the Adirondack chairs on the porch and at the pond. We would love to come back!

Perfect vacation in High Country

We absolutely loved our vacation at the cottage by the pond. It was immaculately clean, comfortable king and queen size beds (w sleeper sofa in living room), adirondack patio chairs, picnic tables, private pond with fish, BBQ grill, wifi and more... Owners are very warm and friendly folks and they've built a lovely home. The location is perfect, secluded yet close to everything, downtown Blowing Rock , grocery store (Food Lion), the beautiful Blue Ridge parkway, Grandfather Mountain, Cone Manor, Bass Lake and Shopping Outlets. Kids loved the stay and we look forward to visiting again.

Cozy clean cottage

We really loved our visit to this cozy quaint cottage. We found it extra clean with all the amenities needed. Linens were high end hotel quality. The bedrooms are a bit small but with all the open space and pond to play around, you don't spend a lot time in the bedrooms. Can't wait to go back !

Beautiful place in the mountains

The cottage is great -- private and quiet, but close to Blowing Rock and the Blue Ridge Parkway. The cottage and property are very well maintained. My wife and I stayed here with my folks, who were visiting from out of town, and the two bedrooms were perfect for the four of us. We only stayed one night, but will certainly be back for a longer vacation.

Rest And Relaxation

We visited your cabin to celebrate myself and my husband's birthdays. We enjoyed our stay, it was so relaxing, and the owners were very friendly, and made you feel welcome. We hope to come for another visit before the end of the year.

Cottage by the Pond

We really had a great time in our secluded cabin. Fished a lot and almost brought in the big one. He broke my line. But, it was exactly the serene environment we expected. We truly enjoyed it.

Tranquil, Serene - A WONDERFUL PLACE To Be

THIS IS A MUST STAY CABIN/COTTAGE!!!! We ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE COTTAGE & SURROUNDGS!!! We have such great times here, we now come in the Summer & Winter. Very relaxing & beautiful views!! We relax on the porch overlooking the lake, hike, we fish from the dock on the lake & "actually catch some", BBQ outside on the gas & charchol grills often. You could not ask for a better place to stay or better town to visit. Blowing Rock is a very quaint town, many things to do. We will be back for a return visit very soon!!!!
