Darling and immaculate, comfortable and convenient.

  • 5 of 5

This place is wonderful if you are looking for a pretty setting convenient to Blowing Rock. I love looking out over the lawn and the pretty landscaping. I like that the upstairs and downstairs are fairly private from one another. The beds are comfortable and we use the pull out in the study as well. The owners have been very thoughtful about the home and it is well equipped for guests. I appreciate knowing they are near if I need them, although I have not called during a stay.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Two sisters and husbands decided at the last minute to go away for a couple of days over the 4th of July weekend. How lucky we were to find Ada's Cottage was available. It is very clean, comfortable and so pretty with beautiful views. The pictures are exactly as it looks. Kitchen is so well-stocked and towels are plentiful. Could maybe add a tv in downstairs bedroom, but that was about it. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the very positive review. We hope you will return for additional visits to Ada's Cottage, we have a number of guests who think of Ada's Cottage as their personal mountain retreat and return year after year. We've considered a TV downstairs but don't have a good location for a TV in the room.

clean and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We had a problem with the DVD player on day 1. The owner came over within 15 minutes and fixed it. There are PLENTY of towels, it is very comfortable... can't imagine ever staying anywhere else. The view of the sunset is extraordinary and a daily treat.
