5-8 minutes away, you can find an Ingles supermarket with a Starbucks and gas station, a Walmart, an ALDI and other convenient stores.

The space
After going to Italy, Spain, Morocco, Mexico and many other beautiful countries, we wanted to bring some of that beauty our way. You will notice this on the beautiful walls in this cottage.
The kitchen is fully equipped with the things you’ll need such as Keurig, coffee maker, dinnerware, cookware, toaster, blender....etc.

We now have a GRILL.!!!. You can dine in, and avoid restaurants or eat out by the fire pit! :)

After a nice day out, you can enjoy your evening on the porch (or fire pit seating area) listening to the birds or inside catching up on your favorite TV show. We provide Cable as well as Netflix. Our king bed will give you a good night rest to wake up the next day feeling ready for a new adventure.

The cottage is in a very peaceful location. You can run on nearby streets, and hear children playing in summer. Visit the many lakes and waterfalls, and go hiking. It’s an easy drive to supermarkets and gas stations, and 12 miles to the Equestrian Center.

We’ve been married for over 12 years and during those years, we’ve traveled to over 20 countries. We’ve backpacked, camped, flown and cruised many of these countries. And after seeing so many beautiful places, we always come home feeling very happy to have mountains, rock faces, boulders, waterfalls, rivers, lakes and many trails an hour or less from our peaceful little town. So... we decided to build 2 small homes so people could come and see what we’re so thankful to come back to. We embarked on this project in 2016 with “hand made” blue prints, and started building these houses ourselves. Just our 4 little hands and the ones of good close friends from time to time. We hope while you stay here and travel around our area, you can also bring back home a new experience... a new discovered beauty like the ones we find everywhere we go.
