About Owner/Manager Donna Caldwell

I grew up in Florida, moved to Texas and then California but I have called Western NC home for the past 25 years. I love the climate, the people and the mountains in this area. It is truly a wonderful place to live and vacation.

Owner/Manager Donna Caldwell purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Owner/Manager Donna Caldwell chose Sylva

I fell in love with this property from the moment I saw it. It has a very special feel about it and is private without being difficult to reach. I like spending time in this cottage in every season and others who have been here like it immediately too.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage is easily accessible from the highway, making it easy to get to shopping, recreation, and sightseeing locations. Yet, with no other houses visible nearby, it feels very private and secluded. That combination is hard to find in the mountains.

lovely cottage for great price--but close to highway

  • 4 of 5

We really loved our stay at White Sage Cottage. Our two children particularly loved the huge backyard, fire pit, etc. Some of the other reviews mentioned the traffic noise, but I just didn't realize the highway is right below the house, and it was rather noisy. But it was still hard to beat such a charming cottage for a great price and we very much enjoyed our post-Christmas stay there.

Compfortable stay with in our budget

  • 4 of 5

Overall we liked our stay. We stayed at this place while we are visiting Cataloochee Ski Area. One observation is, this cottage is very small in every aspect. Bunk beds are very small and if your kids are older than 10 years old I wouldn’t recommend it. Also cable/dish network didn’t work and internet is very slow. TVs and beds require an upgrade. Otherwise John and Donna kept the cottage very neat and well maintained. Thanks to both of you for sharing your cottage with us.

Blue Ridge Parkway Base

  • 4 of 5

Cottage is 2 miles or less to the Blue Ridge Parkway entrance from US-74, very convenient for travelling on the Parkway. Both directions are amazing. Cottage is right off US-74 back and up enough to offer privacy. Some vehicles on 74 can be heard but it is not a huge issue. We enjoyed the porch swing, and tossing the football out back. Kitchen is pretty big and with granite counters, great for cooking there and eating in. Bathroom is updated too. On a rainy day we went to the American House Cat Museum at the Old School Antique Mall in Sylvia. Over in Waynesville one can find familiar fast food chains and mom and pop restaurants.
