Beech's Cozy Cottage is the best.

5 of 5
Danna & Alan, We love your place so much and it feels like home...You have done a wonderful job decorating and seeing to every comfort.. The chaise is my favorite spot..oh, wait I mean the hot tub, oh wait, I mean the sofa watching TV and a fire...oh, wait, the kitchen is the best. We are preparing Thanksgiving dinner and there is every utensil and pot you could want.......My husband loves the bed best and of course, who wouldn't love it, you fall into it and you don't want to get out, plus with the fireplace in the bedroom it so romantic... Well, that leaves the outside..the stream, the view and the roaming deer and squirrels.....amazing..Then come the Beech Mountain hiking trails..we have hiked so much my quads are hurting me......so off to the hot tub I go, the deer are running wild and we are loving it... Thanks so much, have a Happy Thanksgiving.. Michele and Dave
