“Great cottage – new, beautiful finishes, very comfortable, wonderful setting! Property management was on point with communications on check in/check out and provided plenty of information on activities in the area.” – April 2019
“Chestnut Cottage is cozy, extremely clean and decorated in a charming manner. Many amenities are provided to meet everyone’s needs and make you feel at home. We were able to cook meals when we wanted, choose from a variety of games, our favorite is the giant scrabble game on the wall. It’s great to be close to the city, but far enough up in the mountains to see the stars in the evening and secluded from others. The walking trails are nice for a run, walk, or bike ride. We look forward to our return. Our contact with Deer Ridge was extremely helpful and the attention to detail was wonderful and professional.” – Penny, December, 2018
“The home is new and decorated very nice ,absolute a beautiful place to enjoy some time away. Very close to town. This whole experience was fantastic, the property and home was beautiful. The service from Deer ridge was outstanding, very easy and smooth email confirmations. Excellent, thank you.” – Harold, November 2018
“Loved this cabin in the trees! Nice, modern, comfortable green house in a new neighborhood. Two nice short but steep neighborhood trails to get you in shape for hiking, one with a scenic waterfall. Location close to town and entrance to Pisgah Forest. Plenty to do around here or just relax and hang out.
There is so much to do here we keep coming back to do our favorites and try the trails, waterfalls, drives and events we haven’t gotten to. One place we just discovered is at Living Waters, on scenic NC 215 (Forest Heritage Scenic Byway), one of the prettiest places in the mountains, with dual falls at the base of an old mill and a 1/4 mile walk to Cathedral Falls, it’s a must see.
Deer Ridge people are friendly, efficient and competent. We have used them for vacation rentals the last 5 of 6 years. The one year we didn’t we were sorry.” – Jay, October 2018
“The property location as very nice – tucked away location, new contemporary style home, close to Brevard, very easy booking.
The 3000 ft+ elevation put you above the fog line in the morning and the views were outstanding. This property overlooked a recreation area and the sound of a stream made sitting on the deck special. The home décor and design was unique, very well done and appealing. The fact we could bring our small dog made the trip possible and even more enjoyable. Visit nearby High Falls, in Dupont State Recreational Forest. I would rent this property again and recommend it to all.” – Darryl, October 2018
“Everyone loved the place. It was very well appointed. The beds were great! (Not always the case in hotels and rentals).” – Chris, September 2018
“The cottage is beautifully appointed and so clean! It is in a perfect location within the Summit. You can hear the gentle flow of water from a nearby stream, and the fire pit, pavilion and walking trails were close by. The giant scrabble game is a ton of fun and provided our family with continuous engagement!
The kitchen was well-stocked with all the necessary cookware, including table settings for 10 and large serving bowls and platters for family get togethers. There were a few small appliances: toaster, coffeemaker, blender and handheld mixer. It’s so easy to stock the kitchen with 2 grocery stores minutes away! I especially appreciated how well-stocked the cottage was with all the daily essentials: toilet paper, liquid hand soap, laundry detergent, dishwashing liquid, dishwasher detergent, paper towels, trash bags.
The homeowners didn’t leave one detail out! Wonderful place to stay and would return in a heartbeat! – Dana, August 2018
“Our stay was great. Such a wonderful house and perfectly appointed! We will definitely rent this house again. Deer Ridges’ handling of reservations etc has been seamless and personnel friendly and helpful.” – Cathy, July 2018
“Great Location – superb property” – Alberto, June 2018
“Sutton Knob and Chestnut Cottage are an ideal setting for a relaxing vacation. The cottage is lovely, spacious and excellent for family or as in my situation, for a work and play team Leadership stay.
The cottage is situated on a lovely and private site. It is designed in an industrial farmhouse motif and is perfectly appointed with tasteful and comfortable furniture, outstanding beds and lovely appointments. The screened porch and exterior gas grill deck were ideal for visiting, relaxing and guest activities. The kitchen is state of the art and every cooking need a family has in their own home.
The cottage had excellent Wi-fi and satellite TV. Unique to the site was a gigantic, wall-mounted Scrabble board that my team played on for hours on end the entire week. For a generation of young adults who play online “Words With Friends” the scrabble board was a huge hit!!! It is great fun and great competition among friends ad family.
I can’t say enough about the location of the property and the nearness to Brevard, Hendersonville, Asheville, DuPont and Pisgah Forrest. I highly recommend Sutton Knob for the comfort, beauty, and close proximity to so many sites near the Blue Ridge parkway
I believe the Cottages at Sutton Knob are the ideal settings for romantic get a ways and even family reunions since there is a great pavilion and fire pit near the steam and ponds beyond the cottage.
I’m going back again soon for the hidden treasure of Sutton Knob with all the comforts of a well-appointed home!!
Overall I give Sutton Knob a 15 on a 10 point rating system for its great value, settings, beauty and comfort for so many uses.” – David, May 2018
