Valerie and I are transplants from deep in the woods of Maine. We came here on vacation in January of 2012. We had read that people come here and hear the mountains calling them. We heard, went home, packed up, sold the house and here we are. We have never regretted our move.
We are laid back, "go with the flow" people. We have 2 lazy house cats and Sid, The Mayor. Sid is an older Jack Russel with a sweet disposition. He is a gentle old man that prefers non aggressive breeds.
Carl and Valerie purchased this cottage in 2012
We chose this house because our land is so beautiful. When we bought it, it had been vacant for years . We have spent the past few years bringing our land back to a beautiful, park like setting.
It is constantly evolving with interesting plans for the future.
We are so close to a multitude of attractions, but when you come home, you are in a safe, peaceful area with views of the mountain tops. We have turkeys, the occasional cow, and chickens that wander through our yard. At night you can hear the tree frogs and owls calling.
We have a large variety of birds that visit the feeders, perfect for birdwatching.
Our stay at Carl and Valerie's The Shed was absolutely wonderful. It was cute and and very comfortable. More importantly we were pleasantly surprised at how clean Carl and Valerie kept this place. We had a wonderful time here. Valerie was very friendly and personable and would answer whatever questions we had. The Shed had great amenities with a full kitchen that was well stocked. We also enjoyed the fenced in backyard especially since we were able to bring our pups hiking with us. Our stay was wonderful. We highly recommend The Shed to others! We would definitely stay there again at our next visit. Thank you Carl and Valerie!
We had a great experience staying at The Shed and have no complaints! We arrived to a very nice welcoming note from Valerie and Carl along with some doggies treats :-) The Shed was a perfect size, super clean and had all that we needed. It was cozy, beautifully decorated and the dogs loved the fenced in yard. It was so convenient to let them out without a worry. Our visit to NC was to check out real estate and Valerie and Carl went above and beyond to help us in our venture by leaving real estates brochures and a detailed personal note with information about relocating. Will be back to stay and high recommend!
Carl & Valerie were great hosts, Our stay there was made comfortable with camaraderie, information etc. These people are real people & I consider them our friends, even only have spent one week there. The cottage & grounds were perfect for our needs -- 2 adults 2 great dogs & plenty of room to go outside & stretch your legs. Close to everything, but out of the way... We would recommend their cottage to everyone -- unless it's when we are returning! Carl & Valerie we will be back just not sure when. Have a Merry Christmas!

The Shed was adorable! Valerie and Carl welcomed us with a personal note, chocolates, and a kind conversation in the yard! Valerie was very helpful and quick to answer questions we had about the area and gave us a weather update prior to our visit. The Shed was very clean and cozy and had everything you need for a getaway! We will definately be back! Amy & Jason
My girlfriend and I stayed at The Shed this past weekend. Our stay was for 3 nights total. Valerie and Carl were awesome hosts! They provided almost anything we could think of. They had spices in the kitchen, towels in the bathroom, wood outside for the fire pit, a grill with grilling tools, etc.
When we arrived, we met Valerie and chatted for a bit and then she handed us an extra roll of paper towels and let us get settled in. I tried to get on the internet but I had issues, and I walked right over and knocked on Valerie's door. She came over right away and helped me figure it out.
The Shed as a whole was an awesome living space. Complete with everything you could need. Running water, a full bathroom, a TV, a bed, a full kitchen, etc.
Valerie even had a list of some suggested items to do in the area, the closest grocery store, etc.
My girlfriend and I are already talking about visiting again. We would suggest the Tiny Shed to any couple looking to get away for a relaxing weekend together.
I look forward to going back.
Thanks again, Valerie and Carl!
The hospitality from Valerie and Carl was wonderful and the place is so cute, very clean, everything we could possibly need. Enjoyed the weekend, we will definitely be back!
