Spending the Night in Beautiful Western North Carolina

Greg and I really love our state, Virginia, and we also love an adjacent state, North Carolina, especially Western North Carolina with its beautiful, scenic mountains. 

Western North Carolina is not that far from where we live, so we don't normally have to spend the night there, but if we did, I know of the perfect place to stay-

Cardinal Springs Farm in picturesque Candler, North Carolina!

When we lived in Middle Tennessee, we did stay there in the past, and it was a delightful experience. 

Mike and Betty are the perfect hosts, and they make sure your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. They want your Vrbo experience to be "Your vacation home away from home!" They have an excellent rating.

When Greg and I were there a few years ago, we stayed in Carolina Cottage...

which was wonderful. We enjoyed the large yard that...

had unexpected touches.

Inside, the cottage is cozy and festive, no matter what the season.

It's made even cozier with this rustic stone fireplace. 

Enjoy meals for two or more in this lovely dining area.

We'll end our visit here at Carolina Cottage on a whimsical note, with this cute handmade piece that is sure to bring a smile.

Let's move on to a second house on Vrbo at Cardinal Springs Farm...

to Mountain Side Cottage which is equally as nice.*

Love this kitchen!*

And, this comfy bed! Sweet dreams!*

Did you know that most weekends you can see hot air balloons drifting overhead from these cottages?

And as if all of this were not enough, there are plenty of things to do and see in nearby Asheville, and at beautiful Pisgah National Forest...

For more great photos of the cottages, go to, and type in 1128348 for Mountain Side Cottage and 841917 for Carolina Cottage. By the way, while looking at Carolina Cottage, see if you can find a pastel horse portrait that I did for Betty and Mike in one of the photos.

For even more information about these two wonderful rental cottages, and the fun, adventurous things to see in this area, contact Mike and Betty. (See the card below.)

P.S. Mike recently told us that they are planning to have a hiking trail behind their house for any guests that might like to hike. Sounds like a great way to exercise!

Let's go!

Positive thought: Less than two weeks until spring! Happy spring!
Thanks for visiting! Until Sunday, April 4 (Easter!), 2021, Becky
