“cottage by the pond”

Reviewed 17 Nov 2016

We absolutely needed a peaceful seculded quick vacation with comfort of a home rather than a hotel. Both rooms have cozy beds you can warm this house quickly on a chilly night. There is Blowing Rock very close by which we enjoyed. Save the hunt for food go to Southern Comforts it is affordable and has a wonderful variety. There is a pond with a paddle boat my son adored. All and all it is perfect.

“our stay at the cabin”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage by the pond. It was so peaceful, and quiet. Our dog enjoyed the freedom he had, without the fear of him running into the street-it's located well away from the road. We love how it's close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, near both Blowing Rock and Boone, but far enough away that you feel you are in the country. Ginger Walker made us feel welcome, and like family! Because we were there a week when it rained, and foggy, we didn't get to do everything we would have liked to, but we know there will be plenty of activity for our next visit!

“What more could you want?”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2015

The cabin has all amenities you could want. The property is a nice place for a stroll, but remember it is the forest. It's close to several nice small towns. Blowing Rock is worth spending some time, but we also liked West Jefferson. An all around great experience.

“Great time in BR”

We ended up staying in another house on the same property as this cabin. Property we stayed in was clean and had everything we needed. Thank you Linda and Ginger for all of the communication and helpfulness to make this a great holiday weekend for our family. This pond cabin is adorable and just a short drive into town. Worth every penny.

“The only place near Blowing Rock to stay”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2015

The cabin my the pond is a wonderfully private, scenic place. We let our dogs enjoy running around the property, fished and caught bass in the pond, admired the pink clam shell rhodedendron, and sat by the fire cooking hot dogs and toasting marshmallows and sipping wine. It is VERY RELAXING! Very close to Blowing Rock (about a 5 minute drive), and Boone (about 10 minutes).

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”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2014

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”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2014

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!”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2014

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! .

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!
