Lovely little place, close to all the main attractions.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect cottage for a mountain getaway. Close to all major attractions, i.e. the blowing rock, Hawksnest. Nestled just minutes away from amazing local dining. Ada’s cottage was exactly what my family was looking for. Leaving with fond memories and amazing pictures. Thank you for your hospitality.

Once again, a fantastic time had by all

  • 5 of 5

We've been staying here for the past 8 years. One week per year we escape the city and come up to the mountains to rejuvenate. And we always stay at Ada's Cottage. Great house, great owners, great location. We love it, and plan to return next year!

Ideal holiday destination for exploring Blue Ridge Parkway

  • 5 of 5

Great accommodation for the three of us. Well equipped kitchen, nice bathrooms & comfy bedrooms. Ideally placed for exploring Blowing Rock, Moses H Cone, Grandfather Mtn and so much more. We also enjoyed daily visits to Camp Coffee. Wished we were able to have stayed longer here as Ada's Cottage was just so relaxing.

Owner's Response: Terry, Thank you for the very positive review. I wish we had had the chance to meet. I stopped by one evening but you must have been out for a walk in the neighborhood. Enjoy the rest of your Holiday in America. Lonnie

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here. The cottage includes everything you need to feel welcome and at home away from home. Extensive directions on how to use remotes, heating and air conditioner units, which we found very helpful. Ample towels, even a comfy robe! Ada has thought of everything. Views are amazing.

Cozy Mountain Cottage in Quiet Community

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our two-night stay in this cozy, well-appointed, two bedroom cottage, located just a short distance from US-321 and Main Street, Blowing Rock, NC. Beds were very comfortable. Nice kitchen and dining/living room area and front sitting room. Two constructive criticisms, however. First, there is a very narrow, steel, spiral staircase which offers the only indoor access between the upper and lower floors. This is not mentioned in the on-line description of the cottage. Older persons (like my wife's mom, who is 92) may not be able to use it (in fact, my wife slipped and lost her footing while coming down the stairs), and we were unable to bring our large suitcases and bags down to the bedroom using this staircase--they all had to be dragged around from the parking area to the lower back door; and to get to the lower back door there is no sidewalk, only grass. Older folks, like ourselves, will find this a "long haul" and a somewhat difficult chore. Second, there were two spotlights located on the outside lower level of the cottage which were not light-sensitive/automatically activated--we never found the light switch to turn them on. Otherwise, this cute little home was a wonderful place to stay and we would do so again if we are back in the Blowing Rock area.

Owner's Response: John, Thank you for taking the time to write your review and letting us know the issues you raised. The stairway is in one of our photographs but you're correct, the stairs can be an issue for seniors or anyone with mobility issues. Our guests are welcome to drive to the rear of the house to unload luggage, weather permitting. We will consider installing walking path from the outside front steps to the rear deck next spring. We do have a light switch to the outside flood lights on the outside of the house located to the left of the front door. We will find someway to make it easier to locate as it's in a water proof outside electrical box. We don't use an motion sensor as that ofter disturbs those sleeping at night. Thank you for your feedback and we look forward to your return visit.
