“Who writes these reviews?”
I have given property owner (very nice man) ample time to make a rental adjustment before writing this. 1. Location - Prime 2. Bathrooms - 2...not 3 3. Shower - downstairs - disgusting - no one in our party wanted to use - scum and mold all over the shower 4. Kitchen - drawers all but fall out of cabinets onto floor...or your feet 5. Kitchen - pots and pans disorganized and chunked into cabinets and and pots and pans were more than worn - thankfully there was an electric skillet that was decent 6. Not the cleanest home 7. Advertised at a lesser price other than FlipKey...I asked for an adjustment for this and haven't heard back...and I understand busy schedules. The owner said that a renovation would be done this winter...however...that doesn't help families that rent it now and expect property to be as advertised.
Response from the owner Margaret,, You are so right on all points! We have indeed rented our home "as advertised at a lesser price other than FlipKey" through other avenues. Your other points are also conceded! Since your stay, my wife and I now personally inspect each week to assure the cleaning of the house exceeds expectations. Yes, I hope you will return after we renovate this winter! Gary Blankenship
“Labor Day 2016”
Beautiful view and the porches were fantastic!! The owner has been working hard to make updates to the spacious cozy house, we loved the dock and easy walk to the water! We would defiantly stay here again and plan to in the near future : )
Response from the owner Jessica, Thank you for your favorable review of your stay at Hickory Cottage! We are looking forward to having you back again! Gary
“Super will go again”
Annual get together that has been to several places on Smith Mtn Lake with this being rated at the top. This was spacious and comfortable with a great screened in porch that had super view of lake and plenty of room to accommodate all of our group. Plenty of dishes and accessories in the kitchen to cook and prepare whatever we wanted. With 5 bedrooms there is lots of sleep spots and privacy. Will go again.
“One of our two best vacations we have ever taken as a family”
Our vacation at Hickory Cottage exceeded our expectations. The home was spacious, but had that quaint cottage feel we were looking for on the lake. The owners have done a wonderful job decorating to give it that true cottage style. It rained our first 4 days there, but that didn't stop the children. They fished off the dock, swam and floated in the lake or watched a movie from the many great selections. This home and location are conducive to relaxing. The location on the cul de sac and the foliage around it provide a bit of seclusion. However, the people we met were very friendly. We usually vacation on the sound at the OBX, but after our time at Hickory Cottage on SML, it is unanimous...my whole family wants to return next year, if not before. Thank you Gary and Rhonda for sharing your home. We were all truly blessed. Karen and Steve Thomas and family
