The Guest House at Dogwood Ridge is actually TWO HOMES IN ONE with a two bedroom unit upstairs and one downstairs in a lovely studio unit, making this ideal for families who travel together and share or large families with older children who like their privacy. The units are separate, but both are always rented out as one for your comfort and enjoyment. Our lovely Guest House features three spacious, comfortable bedrooms - the upstairs unit features one with a king size bed and one with a queen and a full and the downstairs unit features one with a queen. There's a full bath upstairs and a full en suite bath downstairs. The living room is in the main area upstairs and has a gas 'wood-stove styled' fireplace to create the perfect ambiance. Everything you need for a home cooked meal is at your disposal in TWO fully stocked kitchens. Our Guest House also features two laundry rooms! Wake each morning to a beautiful sunrise and enjoy your coffee on the enclosed porch while the birds serenade you! Take a walk on the property and enjoy the woods and breathe the fresh mountain air!
We love it here so much that we want to share it with others! That's why we've opened our Guest House to you! We live next door to The Guest House in the main house on the property, but we are committed to your privacy and peaceful vacation. We take pride in our property and are responsive to any of our guests' needs. We enjoy providing great perks for all our guests like a batch of our award winning signature cookies, TWO bottles of wine and even a breakfast casserole for your first morning in the fridge. Since we are local, we can deal with our guests directly, but unless you need us we will leave you to enjoy yourselves. Most of our guests never see us and the ones that do have asked us to come over and say hello! We want you to feel that this is Your Home Away from Home in the Smokies, not just a place to sleep!
We invite you to come, be our guest and share in the beauty of the mountains with us!

We concluded our vacation stay at the Guest House at Dogwood Ridge and it was one of the best family vacation weeks we have ever had.
Stephanie was an amazing host and the property is better than pictured. We arrived with soft music playing, some bottles of wine awaiting, and a delicious breakfast casserole (which we didn't save 'til morning...we ate it the same night we arrived.)
The house is more than adequately furnished and had everything we needed.
In addition, it had a gas grill which we used three times. And a pit fire complete with kindling and wood was already setup for burning when we arrived. (We did not get to use the fire because of weather...it is still waiting for you!)
We needed a place where we could make day trips to the Highlands/Cashier area so we could see the sites and do some hiking. The property is about 40 minutes from Highlands but we didn't mind it a bit because the ride is so beautiful.
We loved it and we will be back.
