My daughter and I and her three year old son had a wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable stay. We felt both on vacation and "at home" because the owners seemed to predict what we might need. All the furnishings were top of the line. We really appreciated that the kitchen had everything and, unlike, many places we have stayed, everything was in excellent condition and was top quality. We ate dinner in every night and my daughter was able to fix scrumptious meals.

The setting was great; we felt like we were in the woods--it was so shady and quiet--but the supermarket was only two minutes away, and the center of town with all the fun shops and cafes, less than five. The toys and play set were such thoughtful additions. My grandson had a great time. Thanks, too, for all the accurate information about the local activities. The model train exhibit on Sat. mornings was a huge hit. We will definitely be back in touch about a return visit to the cottage or one of your other properties.

The Storybook Cottage was a wonderful little getaway for us. Its location was perfect for setting out on daily adventures in western North Carolina. The evenings were relaxed and secluded from the rest of the world. The kitchen provided everything to make full meals. The outdoor table on the deck surrounded by the trees and wildlife was very relaxing and pleasant. The inside decorations, dotted with flowers and foliage, followed through with the storybook theme. All very lovely. We had a perfect stay.

The cottage was EVERYTHING (and more!) that was printed on the website. (You never know these days). My husband, son and I had a wonderful time. Would rent again in a heartbeat. I enjoyed most, sitting on the deck, and drinking my coffee in the AM.

Dear Robert and Stephanie,

You have totally spoiled us with this cozy and family friendly cottage. Your attention to detail and responsive service really touched our heart. Our in-laws had lots of fun playing cards and other games you placed in dining room shelf. Our 1.5-year-old boy loved the toy box and the children’s books. The beds are very comfortable; the kitchen is convenient and fully equipped. You even left the grocery discount card in the Welcome book! Even though we did not get the chance to use it, we greatly appreciate your thoughtfulness.


The highlights of the week are the Chimney Rock, Mt. Pisgah hike, Grandfather Mountain, NC Arboretum and the Biltmore. Every night, we returned to the cottage with a home cooked meal, relaxed in the massage chair and hot tub in the private deck. We like this place so much that we are already planning on returning to the cottage next year.

Our family of four stayed in StoryBook Cottage over Thanksgiving. We had a great time and cannot say enough positive things about the level of service Stephanie & Robert provide. The cottage is clean, very tastefully furnished and includes just about anything you can think of. Truly. This includes a base level of household supplies that one, we have not experienced during our many house rentals over the years and two, was VERY welcoming to our late night arrival (tp and towels are always welcome). This was an incredibly nice touch on top of a charming cottage to begin with. Stephanie was also a gracious host helping with Thanksgiving suggestions and calling to make sure our stay was pleasant.

We also enjoyed the community the house was in, including a great historic district downtown and close groceries /restaurants. The greater Asheville community also has lots to offer. Each trip to this area turns up new things! But to be honest, our kids also enjoyed staying at the cottage playing board games, hiking the woods and sitting in the jacuzzi! We highly recommend staying at one of Stephanie & Robert's properties.

I wanted you to know that being in your home for a week has inspired me to make some purchases that will continue the spoiling that I received while staying there. It was amazing. I enjoyed how organized the kitchen was so I just spent the last three grueling days in my kitchen reorganizing, de-cluttering and scrubbing my kitchen. I even bought some fresh flowers. If we decide to visit that area again, I will stay in one of your homes for sure. Couple of questions if you don't mind: What is the model number for the iJoy massage chair that is in Storybook Cottage? I am seriously wanting one of those, but I want to get one similar if not the same. Also, who makes those awesome fuzzy throw blankets, and where can I get my hands on a couple of them?
Thanks for your time :-)

We stayed at the Storybook Cottage for a week and loved every minute of it. It is amazing how you provide state-of-the art "everything" for your guests and yet still manage to keep a cozy, cottage feel. The location made the perfect base for our short day trips in the area. The jetted tub, the rocking chairs on the porch, the woods in the back yard, and the super comfy beds welcomed us home every evening. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Storybook Cottage to anyone. Be prepared to relax, enjoy, and experience a little slice of Western NC heaven.

We stayed a week at the Storybook Cottage and it became home. Charming, well equipped and comfortable. Bravo!

Oh, Stephanie!
We had such a WONDERFUL time. It was so peaceful, relaxing and comfortable. I was literally taking the sheets off the bed with hubby still in it on Monday. He SO didn't want to get out of bed. I think he even said, "Call them and tell them we're never leaving!" If we could have stayed, we certainly would have. The cabin had everything we could ever need. We cooked, ate, drank :) and hot-tubbed. He even got a little work in. In case anyone asks, Tamera from Appalachian Spa came to the cottage and did 1-hour massages for each of us, complete with chocolate-covered strawberries and some other goodies. It was wonderful! Thank you so much for letting us in on such short notice, and I have no doubt we'll be staying with you again in the future.
Thank you again,

-Stacy, Marietta, GA


I loved staying at the Story Book Cottage. Everything the other reviewers have said is true. The cottage is in an older neighborhood at the end of a mountain "cul-de-sac." The little house is back from the road nestled against the woods.

My Yorkie dog came with me. I could open the door and let him walk out. I did not have to carry him, keep him on a leash, or worry about him being run over (or stolen). We walked the trails in the woods behind the house. The first day he was nervous, but after that, he felt at home and loved running the trails. I hate staying in a hotel because I have to be so careful about him.

I slept on the queen bed. That bed is heaven. I took the sheets off so I could see what kind of mattress it was. It is a Serta Perfect Sleeper. While there, I slept better than I have in a long time. The furnishings in this house are so well done, you would swear they had hired Nate Berkus to decorate. Oh. . . . and check out the curly willow tree by the parking area. I've never seen one. I went to B.B. Barns, described it, and they told me it was a curly willow.

Anything you need is in the house. There are some spices, cookbooks, and a few condiments in the refrigerator. There are even umbrellas and a flashlight by the backdoor. I absolutely would recommend staying at any of the locations owned by Stephanie and Robert. They obviously love what they do.
