What our guests are saying:

"Elisabeth was the one of the best hosts we've had.  The house was quiet and relaxing. Just the respite we needed from our busy lives. Everything is well appointed; we had everything we needed. Elisabeth thought of everything."

"Elisabeth is a perfect hostess, great communication and she has a wonderful home for a mountain getaway. For me, the best accessory is the awesome binder she's put together with all the travel info you'd ever need. Each day we made our plans off that book, such a great touch."

"Elisabeth met us when we arrived and provided us with information on things to do during our stay. The house is very clean and it is in a great location for hiking and sightseeing. Wish we could have stayed longer!"

"Wonderful, special place. Love the history, workmanship and lovely setting, inside and out. Thank you for your kind, generous welcoming atmosphere. "Southern Charm" perfectly describes the accommodations. Terrific location to explore all around Hendersonville & Asheville areas and more. Warm, welcoming setting and interior. Very clean; plush bedding and linens, fully complemented kitchen. Really treated like a Guest, not just a visitor."
