Larry and Jackie are the sweetest couple who obviously put their hearts and souls into keeping the property up. The flowers, the landscaping, the cleanliness of the cabin, the quiet - I can't even describe. I feel like we went to a whole different world. I couldn't wait to wake up in the morning and the front door so I...

This past week I checked in to the Wayah Creek Cottage and was thrilled that the grounds and cottage were awesome and far better than I could have hoped for. Even though it is off a quiet road, once you pull into the grounds, you see absolutely gorgeous grounds that are groomed yet natural. Larry is a master gardener and...

I just stayed at Wayah Creek Cottages. What an incredible experience! The tumbling creek right outside the clean, spacious cabin was pure relaxation. Jackie and Larry have turned each cabin on this small property into an oasis of pleasure. Native plants encircle each cabin and the covered front porches allow you to enjoy them during those summer afternoon showers. Once...

We spent three delightful days at Wayah Creek Cottages. We loved the tranquillity and beautiful gardens. We had our own special area next to the creek with lovely flowers, ferns, hostas, stone walls, picnic table, chairs, etc. The owners told us about a great restaurant and an incredible waterfall that we hiked to, so they were very knowledgeable about the...

Too much stuff going on. Mowing while you were at creekside cooking on grill. Noisy and dust. Rude to say the least. Towels the size of a wipe. Too many rules. Always worried if you were going to do something out of ordinary and have Jackie rap your fingers with a ruler. Not my cup of tea.

The good: We booked Wayah Creek Cottages at the last minute and based on other traveler reviews. They had availability and held the room with no deposit. The odd: They do not accept CC’s only cash or check. How difficult would it be to open a Square account? I suppose that is why all our interactions with Jackie and her...

Our family has enjoyed the beauty, cleanliness and serenity of the Wayah Cottages many times and will again in May 2011. Thank you Jackie and Larry for making us feel comfortable, safe and relaxed while staying with you at your lovely place in the mountains. See you in May.

My wife and I feel fortunate that our daughter found these cottages on line as it was late in the day. Jackie was very acommodating with directions and preparing the cottage on such short notice.The cottages were warmly welcoming with a vintage style fireplace and decor.I liked the beautiful creek with the picnic tables and grills (one for each cottage)....

My Husband and I found this place by accident and what a blessing! It was just beautiful and the cabins were very nice and really clean. The owners were absolutely wonderful. They took time to show us around, walked through the grounds, and told us about the natural flowers and plants. We can't wait to go back! We kept commenting...
