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.

LINDA & JORGE GONZALEZ
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.

Creekside relaxation. We really enjoyed staying at Gili’s Cove Cottage. Linda and Jorge were amazing hosts. The house was extremely clean and well organized. Great WiFi, Direct TV, Streaming Services and instructions for all amenities and local attractions. Great fishing at the pond near the house. Beautiful mountain and valley views. The Tusquittee Creek is right in your backyard. Perfect for kids and dogs. We will definitely be back!

Unbelievably spotless house! If you’re looking for an unbelievably spotless house, your search is over! We arrived the day after a snowstorm, so the area was just beautiful. Linda met us when we arrived to show us around and shared some valuable information about the area. She and Jorge live nearby and are readily available, but not intrusive. The house is in a lovely valley with a bold stream running through the yard. We enjoyed watching deer in the field across the river. We also enjoyed watching planes take off and land on the airstrip. The house is very comfortable and spacious. Due to COVID, we didn’t venture out to any restaurants, but we had everything we needed to prepare and enjoy meals at home. The house is filled with books, movies and games to occupy your time, as well as plenty of places to stretch out to take a nap. Linda and Jorge have carefully equipped the house to meet all of their guests needs. We left relaxed, refreshed and looking for an opportunity to return!

We absolutely loved our stay at the cottage! Linda was very welcoming to our family, even leaving little treats for the children. The home was spotless, and everything we needed was readily available. The creek, pond, and view of the mountains are so beautiful and relaxing, especially when we caught the first snow of the year! We will be planning our next trip very soon!

We had such a nice and relaxing stay at this property! Linda was extremely accommodating and nice during the check in process, met us at the door, and gave a nice tour of the property and how everything worked. The house is extremely clean and organized, the kitchen is stocked with everything you may need, and there are lots of extra towels and blankets to make you comfortable. We stayed here with our dog and I loved the accommodations she included for our furry family member, like food and water bowls, treats, and pet covers for the furniture. We had an amazing time relaxing outside in the hammock listening to the creek, building fires on chilly nights, and our dog loved walks around the beautiful property and surrounding area. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing, quiet getaway!
