We've been coming to the Garden Hamlet several times a year for over 10 years. Every visit is magic and the cottages are always perfect. This visit we stayed in beautiful Willow cottage. It has a brand new, fantastic kitchen and nicely updated bathrooms. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Ten blissful days! Already looking forward to coming back for Christmas.

We have rented a number of Garden Hamlet cottages, and this is one of our favorites. It is in a great location, just across the paved parking area from Seasons restaurant and a comfortable view of the animals in the pasture . This time we were surprised that it had been totally refreshed on the inside. New paint, counter tops, appliances and furniture. We enjoyed the Willow for a week and entertained my wife's brother and his wife for several days during our stay. This is an ideal location to enjoy Flat Rock and Hendersonville. One minor lookout, one of the bedrooms has twin beds.

I had a wonderful three week stay at the fly fire fly and have different family members come in at different times and they all thoroughly enjoyed the location, atmosphere and cleanliness of the cottage. I hope to go back and stay again, perhaps in the fall. Jackie and family members

We’ve been coming to the Garden Hamlet cottages for several years now, and we’ve stayed in many different cottages over the years. Each one is different and charming in its’ own way. This year we stayed in the duplex unit Firefly. It was very clean, a well appointed kitchen, and the beds were comfortable too. We love sitting on the porch and taking in the scenery, taking walks around the property, feeding the goats carrots in the evenings and there are several outstanding restaurants in Flat Rock and Hendersonville! Seasons restaurant is within walking distance. Don’t miss the bakery at Flat Rock and shopping at the Wrinkled Egg in Flat Rock! It’s so relaxing, we look forward to coming every year, in fact, we’ve decided to come back in July for another week!

We were extended stay guests 3.5 months at Firefly Cottages. The 2 BR/2 BA cottage is clean and well appointed. The beds were comfy, and the porches perfect to relax on. The cottage is located on a green with goats. The restaurant on site is good and within walking distance. Don’t miss Flat Rock Bakery and walks at the Carl Sandburg homestead! The Collins management team are nearby, accessible and local, they will take good care of you. They were kind enough to show us how to use the streaming TV.

We stayed in The Lark for a week. Peaceful, relaxing, comfortable, and all the amenities we needed. The beds were comfortable (always a worry for the back). I would highly recommend staying and look forward to coming back!!

We have stayed at the Garden Hamlet Cottages several times and each time it seems to just get better! Steve, the property manager, is so nice to deal with. You feel like he is your friend and wants you to have a nice stay! Every cottage is different, but all of the cottages surround a beautiful pasture of goats and sheep. I would highly recommend this location if you are seeking a peaceful trip and want to enjoy the beautiful NC mountain region. Hendersonville is close by, but the best restaurant, Seasons, is walking distance from the cottages.

We had a very comfortable stay at the Charleston over New Years welcoming in 2022! The house is well equipped, super clean and comfy. Loved being near the goat/sheep pasture, seeing beautiful sunsets, and very convenient to grocery stores, breweries, wineries and great hiking opportunities. Will stay again!!

We’ve been to Flat Rock many times and love this rental. We call it the Goat Farm as the community of cottages surrounds a lovely pasture complete with many goats/sheep. It feels rural although only minutes from the town of Flat Rock and Hendersonville. The lake is beautiful, during the spring/summer season kayaks, canoes and paddleboats are available. The Lark has everything you need. A great covered porch that overlooks the pasture and has a grill and fire pit, even provided wood which we used in the living room fireplace. Kitchen fully equipped, gas stove, dishwasher. Tv in living room easy to figure out and internet signal is pretty good. The cottage was spotlessly clean when we arrived, even with Covid felt safe and masks are required on the property. Can’t beat the location and atmosphere for a reasonably priced mountain getaway.
