If I could give this property 6 stars, I would! We arrived to an immaculate home and could immediately hear the rushing waters of the creek just behind it. Linda (the owner) swung by to greet us and was incredibly welcoming and helpful. The cottage was very well stocked, not only with things like pots, pans, towels, etc. but also the little things like a sewing kit and first aid kit, fishing poles, firewood and more. There was even a bowl of fresh fruit on the counter, fresh cut flowers and a very lovely greeting gift with goodies. Amazing! Our kids, 12 and 8, spent HOURS playing in the large creek and fishing in the pond. The kids did some “mini-tubing” down the creek. It was a highlight of the trip for them! Kids also enjoyed feeding the neighbors, Roscoe the donkey and his buddy the bull, just a short walk away. And then, of course, there was roasting hotdogs and making s’mores over the creekside firepit. Hayesville is a lovely, quaint little town and there is a ridiculous amount of fun things to do, all within about an hour… tubing, U-pick farms, lakes, Tallulah Gorge, the Appalachian Trail…too much to list. If you are on the fence about renting, GO FOR IT! You won’t regret it. My kids are already asking when we are going back. Thank you Linda and Jorge for sharing your amazing property with us! Many, many happy memories!
