1.This is an Older farmhouse but recently upgraded on a private gated farmland. I own 2acres around the cottage. The other acreage is not owned by me.
My cottage has been upgraded over the years(see photos & tap on them for more info)

2. From my porch, you can See & Hear the Toe River nearby but it is not on my property.
As such I cannot give you permission to go to it.

3. From my cottage you can See & Hear the Trains as they come by very close to the cottage (3x night/day). Can be NOISEy!!

I want to maximize the ability of families (6) to get a Real Homelike Countryside, Mountain living . A getaway with minimal cost.

There might be TWO MAJOR THINGS that might prevent you from wanting to rent my PLACE?!?!

ALL the Locals know that this is one of the few places to access the Toe River.
YOU must keep the gate locked(or at least make it appear locked) at all time, even when you go in&out during your stay my cottage.
This protects you and your personal stuff.

BEfore You leave, I require You to:::
a)clean up-dishes, pans etc, you have used....
b)Wash&dry the bedding sheets & towels, you might have used.
Only replace the bottom sheet on the beds.
c)Get rid of all your trash by bringing to “Bakersville Recycling Center” 3 miles beyond Bakersville on your right onHwy 226 on the way to Spruce Pine. open 7to7 most days except Sunday.
**There is no trash service available to me at my cottage.

Otherwise, you are required to bring all your trash with you & dispose of it at a place of your own choosing!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - -
This is how I can keep it affordable for a family to enjoy a real mountain living lifestyle.
Remember what my next guest says about how you left my place does affect my AirBnB evaluation of your stay....
- - - - - - - - - - - - - -
SO If you are Ok with this, Great!!!!!!!!
I hope you enjoy and always treat my “HOME” like
it was your “HOME”!!!!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
My cottage is homey but not a “luxurious” AirBnB chalet”.. (see pictures)
So, If these 2 things are not issues for you & you are OK with these rules…..
then:: WELCOME and ENJOY...!!!!
