“YES! You want to stay here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

My husband and I booked this bed-and-breakfast on a living social deal for our 25th anniversary. It was purely wonderful. The room that we stayed in(Rainy's Hideaway)was comfortable, quaint, and well decorated. It had everything that we needed – including Q-tips, shampoo, and lotion. We stayed there in June and we were able to have the windows open with the ceiling fan going it was so very pleasant. There is an air conditioning/heating unit case you need it though. The front porch of this bed-and-breakfast is idyllic. There is a porch swing, some chairs,Hummingbird feeders, subtle wind chimes, and lots of other great touches to make it very inviting. And let's not forget the wonderful view of the mountain right in front of you! Breakfast on the two mornings we stayed there was amazing! Very flavorful, great coffee, hearty, just delicious. The snacks in the late afternoon/early evening were also so nice. There is lots to do and see just a short drive from the B&B. Dave and Mariah are wonderful hosts, friendly and helpful but not intrusive. You will in no way be sorry if you vacation in Hiawasse and stay at Henson Cove. It is wonderful!

My husband and I celebrated our 3rd Wedding Anniversary in Hiawasee and stayed at Henson Cove after purchasing a livingsocial voucher online. It was such an amazing experience! We thoroughly enjoyed our first time ever staying at a B&B and couldn't have anticipated the wonderful service we received from Dave and Mariah! The food was amazing, there was complimentary wine at 4 each day, and they gave us some great reviews of local areas and things to do while in town. It was the perfect way to enjoy our anniversary. Thanks for being so hospitable and making our visit one of our most memorable!- Kristynna

We had never stayed in a B&B before but found a voucher on Living Social so we thought we would try it out. WOW! We have such an enjoyable experience. The atmosphere and food were extraordinary! We had puffy pancakes for breakfast the first morning and a sausage and tater frittata the second morning! Both were delicious. We stayed in the Mountain View room. It was very comfortable and the view was beautiful. Dave and Mariah certainly know how to make you feel like you are right at home!

This B&B is located in a secluded location away from all the hassle and busy life , beautiful mountain views from the porch , ours was Rainy hideaway, which was like staying in a tree house..totally surrounded by greenery. The rooms were Immaculate and beautifully decorated with antiques .Dave and Mariah have created a truly magnificent B&B experience and were excellent hosts. Mariah is a wonderful cook , i loved all her meals, the scrumptious brownies and chocolate dipped strawberries deserve a special mention. The Chocolate velvet coffee prepared by Dave's was so good. We will definitely be staying here on our future visits.

Room Tip: Rainy Hideaway is a perfect romantic retreat for couples. Its a beautiful room on the top corner wit...

We just returned from our 2nd trip to Henson Cove Place B&B. Dave and Mariah are the perfect hosts, and the BEST chefs! Breakfast will not disappoint! The puffy pancakes are truly perfect. We love staying in Rainy's Hideaway in the tree tops, and sleeping with the windows open is very relaxing The location is great, and Dave and Mariah have great dining and activity recommendations. This trip, we went to Anna Ruby Falls, Duke's Creek falls and hit up several of the local wineries. We'll definitely be back!

Great experience in this B&B; everything was so welcoming and comfortable. This is a country house that with 3 bedrooms used for B&B - two of the bedrooms have a bath included, our bathroom was in the hallway which I thought might be a problem, but it was no problem at all….the hall bathroom was private for us. When we arrived there was a note on the door - the inn keepers had been called away for an emergency, but left us instructions and details about where everything in the house was located. There were snacks and beverages on the kitchen island along with a book of menus for the restaurants in town. We unpacked then drove around the town - very pretty; we wound up at the Hamilton Gardens which we walked through - beautiful.

There were lots of movies to watch, wi-fi, comfortable bed and a wonderful breakfast. Mariah prepared Puffy Oven Pancakes with a fresh assortment of berries and maple syrup with hickory smoked bacon that was cooked perfect. We had coffee made with fresh ground coffee beans and orange juice.

We had fresh made chocolate covered strawberries, that were perfect, in our room when we came home after a day hiking and seeing waterfalls in the area.

The second morning we had Sausage, Cheese, and Tater Frittata with fresh fruit, biscuits and raspberry butter; coffee made with fresh ground coffee beans and orange juice.

I realized after we had been gone just a few minutes, that I had left my iPad and Bible Study bag in the kitchen where I had been sitting earlier in the morning. When we got back to the B&B, David was backing out the driveway bringing them to me…..he knew we were going by Hamilton Gardens on the way out of town. One just couldn't ask for a nicer couple than Mariah and David Nugent and their hospitality. When we are back in the area, we will definitely stay at Henson Cove B&B.
