Photos and Description of this Winston-Salem holiday cottage

2BR cute and quiet. Hardwood floors, deck looks out over huge back yard

We bought this comfortable gem about 10 years ago because it was next door to our house and we wanted to make sure it stayed well maintained. We rented it by the year until we started renting the 'big house' (Outrageous Cabin in the Woods) on VRBO and now we pop back and forth between them and two others we own in the neighborhood. The house comes fully equipped with appliances including washer and dryer. Central air and gas heat, microwave etc, etc. Since we stay there sometimes we make sure that all the kitchen gear you may need is there as well: coffee, salt, pepper, etc. It really is difficult to conceive that you are less than two miles from WFU and about 8 minutes from Winston Salem's extremely vibrant downtown. We have traveled extensively and used VRBO in Europe and South America on many occasions so we like to think we know what travelers expect on a stay. We stay in the background but are generally close by if the need arises for assistance.

***SPECIAL REQUEST: Please, no perfumes, hairspray, or scented candles indoors - homeowner has severe allergy! If you must use these products, please do so outdoors. Thank you.

Loved the little cottage in the woods. So comfy and just right for our family of 5. The dog loved the front yard. Our kids were so excited to pick out which bed was theirs. :) Beautiful place. Thank you!

Just like being home

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable home. Everything you could possibly want, comfy beds, fully stocked kitchen and wonderful deck. Everything is well maintained and clean. The owners are very attentive and helpful. We had a problem working the tv remotes and they assisted us immediately.

I would certainly rent this property again.

Pleasant stay

  • 3 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay at the cottage in the woods.

We were welcomed by a racoon on the porch.

The house was clean and nice furnished.

The garden in the back is very peaceful.

The kitchen is small but well equipped.

We look forward to come again when we visit our daughter at wake forest university.

Comfortable and Cozy

  • 3 of 5

A very comfortable and cozy cottage awaits your visit to the Winston-Salem area. This little gem is close to Wake Forest University and several convenient shopping centers.

The home is small, yet contains 2 bedrooms with an adjoining Jack and Jill bath. It has a small kitchen with all the conveniences one would need for their stay. The dining area is small, yet we were able to use the living room for most of the meals we ate during our stay.

The home was built in the 40's. If you're used to the amenities and modernism of the Hilton hotels, forget it, as this place is not for you. But if you're looking for a simple, convenient and comfortable place to stay for a couple of days, this is perfect. Should our grandson decide to attend WFU, we'll book this place again.

We are in the Northwest quadrant of Winston Salem, close to Wake Forest University. We are surrounded by multiple mid to high end grocery stores as well as many ethnic restaurants: Chinese, Indian, Italian, Mexican etc. The entrance to the house is directly under a street light, and there is a bright green mailbox at the end of the driveway so it's hard to miss.
