“Cozy cottage in scenic setting”
Reviewed 3 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

person found this review helpful

My huaband and friend rented this cottage for our hot air balloon adventure in Asheville for 3 days. It was 5 minutes from downtown Asheville which was a big plus. It's located in an older neighborhood on Kenilworth Lake and the setting is very pretty with lots of trees and the many gardening projects of the owner Tama. The cottage itself is older but the rooms are a decemt size with hardwood floors. The one bath is small but sufficient however a towel rack would have been nice. No bath soap or hand soap was there when we arrived but when we asked for hand soap it was provided promptly. It would have been nice if it came fully stocked with paper products and we didn't have to request items such as toilet tissue. The kitchen is furnished with a mismatch of different items. No dishwasher but we didn't eat there much. The lighting was not good except in the kitchen. Bring your own light bulbs if you want to read in the living room! There was only one light bulb in the ceiling fixture in the bathroom so it was very difficult to put on makeup there. I would probably give this place 5 stars if it wasn't for the lack of paper products and lighting which we found to be very inconvenient but an easy fix. It's not the Hilton but it's a cozy place in a very pretty and convenient location.

Liked best: The location was 5 mins from downtown and was on a pretty little late in the woods. Owner Tama has herb garden, small fish pond and welcomed us to share it.
Liked least: Had to ask for toliet tissue since there was less than one roll for 3 people for 3 days! Also no bath soap or handsoap in bathroom. We didn't prepare meals there but if we had we would have to ask for more paper towels. Clock radio was so dirty!

“Amazing small cottage and wonderful hosts”
Reviewed 21 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

This was our first stay at this cute property and it was well worth it! The owners definitely made us feel at home by welcoming us as soon as we arrived. Tama told us to help ourselves to their garden and their beautiful property around the cottage. We loved doing the swing, rowing in the lake and exploring the beautiful trails in the woods. It's a very short drive to downtown Asheville and there are plenty of dining/shopping options right near the property. We have already talked about returning sometime in the near future because we love Asheville and this spot is perfect for us.

“More than we could have hoped for.”
Reviewed 19 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Everything about our stay was perfect from the swing that goes out over the lake to the fresh eggs and veggies the owners gave us from their chickens and their garden. We had more fun exploring this property than we did going into town and doing things. You feel so peaceful and secluded in this location yet you are minutes from everything. Our 7 and 9 year old daughters didn't want to leave the house because there were so many different fun things to do and see. The owners were great, they're very child friendly and very helpful in letting us know about unique, off the beaten path adventures we all enjoyed. We would definitely stay here again and hope to soon!

“IN A WORD.....PERFECT!”
Reviewed 27 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

There are so many adjectives I could use to describe our stay at Lakeside; here are a few:
Peaceful, Beautiful, Relaxing, Kid-Friendly, and Cozy! The cottage is just 5 minutes from Downtown Asheville, and about 10 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Yet, you feel like you are a million miles from everythign while you are there. The owners are very kind and accomodating. We enjoyed getting to know them some, and we are certain that one day we will return to Lakeside, a place that will make your vacation....PERFECT!

“Perfect Location to visit Asheville while enjoying lakeside tranquility...”
Reviewed 11 June 2011 for a stay in May 2011

people found this review helpful

My husband and I found this to be the perfect choice for our visit to Asheville in early May. We were looking for 2 things...enjoying the peace and tranquility of the outdoors, but in a location convenient to downtown Asheville and Biltmore Estate. We couldn't have made a better choice. The cottage is literally a couple minutes' drive from downtown Asheville, and maybe 10 minutes from Biltmore. The best part, though, is the cottage setting...nestled on a wooded lot, within steps of an idyllic lake with rowboat, dock and hammocks. The cottage itself is a pleasant blend of your grandma's old-tyme cottage and more contemporary decor and furnishings. The owners are both fantastic people who are happy to socialize or allow you to enjoy their property privately. If you wish, they will light a bonfire at night so you can enjoy the outdoors even more.
Truly, our only regret is that we didn't spend more time there. We are planning to return for a week, hopefully sometime this fall...so I hope you don't book them up completely! :)
