The space is a stand-alone studio with a small equipped kitchen, bathroom, and balcony located across from our home with a shared patio. We are located in a residential area in Sylva city limits, in beautiful Jackson County, NC, and a quick drive to WCU, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Cherokee, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Sylva is a tiny mountain town with rafting, fishing, hiking, 3 local breweries, antique stores galore, 3 bookstores, and a gorgeous downtown. Check out #sylvanc for more!
You will have your own bathroom and kitchen with a stove, fridge, microwave, coffee pot, dishes, pots/pans, etc. The cottage is a stand-alone building across from our home, so there is plenty of privacy, but also an opportunity to chat as much as you would like on our shared patio. If you would like to spend some time outside in the beautiful mountain evening, but want more privacy, you have your own balcony at your disposal. The bed is queen size and there is also a large sofa that can sleep a 3rd person. Outside includes a shared patio for grilling or a fire. We are very close to downtown Sylva in a residential area, but have a semi private location. Please note that there is no TV, but there is wireless internet.
You have your own cottage and can come and go as you please. Parking is right outside your front door. Kitchen is equipped with cooking utensils, coffee, tea, and snacks. If there is something not there that you may need, we have a full kitchen in our home with every possible kitchen gadget! The bathroom has clean towels, soap, shampoo, hair dryer, iron, and ironing board. You share a patio with us and our two dogs. Feel free to use the grill on the patio. Please let us know beforehand so we can make sure the propane tank is full. We also provide a laundry service for $5/load.

We will make every effort to greet you when you arrive and to get you settled in and comfortable. If we are not available, we provide directions on how to get inside your space. We happily provide recommendations for restaurants, hiking spots, things to do in the area, etc. There are great maps of the Smoky Mountain National Park for your use during your stay. David is also always available by phone and will be happy to address any need you may have while you stay with us.
We do have two friendly dogs...they bark at strangers when they first arrive but are very friendly dogs. They will be in our house most of the time. We do restrict guests to 12+ due to dogs being on the property, however.
ALL are welcome at our home! We have loved hosting on AirBnB and meeting people from all walks of life from all over the world. We pride ourselves on NEVER having canceled a reservation!
No smoking. No pets.
We bought our home, a 1920's era farmhouse, 4 years ago and have been renovating and remodeling ever since - all on our own! When we are not working on our house - currently we are renovating the master bath - we enjoy traveling, flower gardening, hiking, dinner with good company and good beer/wine, and spending time with our two hounds. David was born and raised in Sylva, NC, with only 4 years spent away from the mountains he loves while at Chapel Hill (go Tarheels!) He works full-time as an electrical engineer, is a Sylva Town Commissioner, flower and bird aficionado, woodworker, and all around jack of all trades. Suzanne spends her days as a nonprofit attorney and her nights coming up with projects for David to work on in the house. Originally from New Orleans, Suzanne found herself loving the small-town, rural life and made the move to Sylva in 2010 and has not looked back since. We love our community and are looking forward to sharing it with our guests.
