GILI'S COVE COTTAGE...woods, nature, serenity. Fall asleep to the sounds of the rushing creek right outside your window. Enjoy morning coffee on the porch overlooking the creek, watch deer in the meadow and the geese in the pond. Fish for a trout dinner just steps outside the back door.
Two-bedroom/two-bath cottage with split plan for privacy, sleeps six. Living room + family room allows plenty of room for you and all your gear. The living room has a gas fireplace heater with two comfy recliners. The family room has a wall of windows overlooking the creek, with an oversized counter and wet bar. The all-season porch is screened in summer, but when the weather gets cool, the 360-degree windows allow you to still enjoy the porch, watching the creek for deer and beaver, and the gas fireplace and comfy chaise lounge provide a perfect spot for curling up with a good book. The kitchen is large, open and bright, and is fully equipped to handle meals for gatherings of all sizes. Off the kitchen is the laundry room with a wash-up sink, folding table and plenty of hanging space. Hi-speed internet with Wi-Fi means you'll never be out of touch. Also provided is a landline phone with free domestic long distance. The cottage has central heat & A/C. Pull-through driveway with carport keeps your vehicle clean and dry. The cottage sits on a wooded and lushly landscaped level lot for easy access.

Raised in New Jersey (too crowded). Chicago winters (too cold). Florida summers (too hot!). Clemson University grad (go Tigers!). And all we ever wanted to do was live in the mountains. We finally realized our dream and settled in the one of the friendliest small communities surrounded by nature's beauty which awes us every day. Peace. Nature. Tranquility. We found our serenity. Let us help you find yours at Gili's Cove Cottage.

Gili's Cove Cottage is the first VRBO property that I experienced everything as advertised (and more). I don't need to say anything more. Read the VRBO description and believe.zwfr

Linda and Jorge were wonderful and helpful hosts and have the house supplied with everything you need, other than your food and clothes! It’s a lovely home, with lots of light and all windows on the back overlooking the rushing stream. The screen porch is huge and a great place to read, relax, have a meal, or work on a hobby at the huge picnic table and listen to the stream. We stayed 2 weeks and didn’t want to leave, so we extended our stay a couple more days, before the next guests arrived. If you are a rockhound or gem hunter, don’t miss the Gem and Mineral museum in Franklin (who can help you with where to go) and if you want the fun without the hard work, we did “enhanced buckets” at both Mason Mountain Mine (and Cowee Gift Shop) and Rose Creek Mine, both just a bit north of Franklin. We loved both, but esp. Mason Mountain mine, as they add their gems, crystals, etc. to dirt from the mine so we got a lot of extra garnets and rubies (that they are known for). You can also dig your own dirt at both, which a lot of younger folks were doing.

Caught 30+ fish in the pond! We have rented from VRBO many times. Without a doubt, this is the cleanest, most well stocked rental we have ever walked into! Furnished with tasteful, high quality bedding, towels and every kitchen gadget you might ever need. Late getting in, we didn't meet Linda for a couple of days. She asked was there anything we needed or was out of. I replied, "are you kidding? The only thing I hadn't seen was bathroom scales (but then I wasn't looking)! I was joking but the next morning, we found a pair of scales on the front porch! Talking about porches...that back porch...you'll just have to experience that for yourself!!! Loved sitting next to the stream just feet away from the back door and our son caught 30+ fish in the pond on the property. Animals are always a draw for me so we enjoyed the group of deer that walked by several mornings and there were cows and a very friendly donkey on adjoining property we got to pet.

The Mountains are my happy place! Hard to believe this is our 7th year at Gili's Cove. As return guests and being a native of Hayesville myself, I am happiest when I am here in the mountains. Linda and Jorge are excellent hosts and provide all that guests could possibly need for a relaxing stay in the mountains. The kitchen is well equipped, so all you need is the food. We love everything about Gili's Cove, but some of the favorite things are the creek, peaceful surroundings, and that new trail along the creek. We were excited to see that the trail had been extended and an additional trail added around a hidden pond. We love it! We missed "Harry the Herron" at the creek but hope to meet him next year. I did spot a Broad Winged Hawk, which was pretty awesome! So, if you're looking for a great place to get away and relax, look no farther! We love Linda and Jorge and thank them for sharing this little piece of heaven, tucked away in the mountains.
