“Oct. 2-4”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

We only have good things to say. Dave and Mariah were friendly, nice and informative. They had a freshly made breakfast every morning. Which I didn't need but ate anyway! ;-) Delicious!
This was a time for my husband and I to just get-away. It was so nice. Loved her decorations!
I can't say enough good things. It was our first Bed & Breakfast but, won't be our last!! The Groupon price made it an even better deal.

Room Tip: Our room was upstairs and very quite and private. I can't compare to others because that is the...

Dave and Mariah's bed and breakfast is absolutely the most welcoming place! We were greeted and shown to our room (the one upstairs, which is very private), and helped with any questions we might have about the area. After we arrived back from an excursion in to nearby Hiawassee, we were greeted with wonderful chocolate-covered strawberries and wine. We enjoyed all this on a porch swing which looked up in to the mountains. So, if you're looking for a very private escape, this is it! The only negative aspect, is that it is about a 15 min. drive in to the town for dinner. AND be sure to check out all the restaurants on the lake - very relaxing.

Room Tip: Ask for the upstairs bedroom and bath!

The place was nice, but our setting room had the worst musty smell ever.
Well worth the Groupon price we paid, the extra touches almost made up for the missed sleep because of the smell.
We used a blanket from the closet and it had the bad odor as well.
We opened the windows and kept the door open, but the smell did not go away.
Total Bummer as the food and extra touches were great, not to mention the fantastic chocolate covered strawberries!
We looked at one of the cabins and it was really nice, perhaps we can get the cabin if we decide on a return trip.
The owners were very nice and friendly, great rocking chair front porch, too bad sleep was the only thing missing from our stay.

Room Tip: Do not get the Garden Suite.

We are so sorry you missed out on sleep in the Garden Suite. Guests getting good sleep is very important in this business. We wish you would have said something. We will give that room some major attention. We appreciate your honesty.

Nice lodgings, comfortable beds, great breakfasts, although we tend not to eat big breakfasts, their breakfasts are delicious. I felt guilty wasting food, but just could not eat it all.

The surrounding area is beautiful. Anna Ruby Falls is a must see.

Have you ever visited a place and it felt like it was created just for you? The Hencon Cove Place B&B felt that way to me. The hosts were quite gracious and helpful. It seemed like they could ready our minds as they offered just what we were interested in just when we were about to ask them about it. They provided free wine tastings at 2 of the local wineries. And we got 10% off one restaurant nearby, The Copper Door, and 20% off of the Chophouse: Both were fine establishments with amazing menus. They suggested various places for shopping and tons of other activities. A pleasant couple and a pleasant location that let us get away from the noise and hectic pace of the city life.

We have stayed 3 times so far at Henson Cove and each time just gets better. The area is beautiful and each time we go, we discover new things to do and new places to go. Dave & Mariah are absolutely the best hosts and are a wealth of knowledge about the surrounding area. We now feel like we are visiting family when we go.

Henson Cove Place B&B
1137 Car Miles Rd.
Hwy 76
Hiawassee, GA 30546

Prop: Mariah and Dave Nugent

1. One-Word Review: Golden

2. Two-Word Review: Top Tip

The setting: A HUGE White Pine in the front yard, east of the porch, across from the bird feeders: “Cue the Cardinals!”

Laurie and I stayed for three days – 2013-08-13 – 16. Should have stayed over the weekend. Live and learn.

Ambiance: A well-detailed, natural wood interior, decorated just enough -- but not beyond. And very clean and tidy. Comfortable … like home … made you want to pick up after yourself …

Our second floor accommodations, “Rainey’s Hideaway”, had cross –breeze windows – with a view of a bird-meeting-place tree -- and a super-comfortable double bed. The bath was accompanied by full-pile towels, pop-up paper drinking cups, lotions and potions (plus balms, unguents, and restorative agents – OK, I exaggerate) for those that forgot them … and the room had enough power outlets for all your gadgets. (We did not bring any drills and table saws, however … )

Located several miles east of “town”, so to speak, the “Cove” looks down-slope across the end of “Car Miles Road” to a horse pasture … back a mile off GA 76 => quiet. Sit out on the sloping lawn, in the see-saw rockers, with your best girl, in the gathering gloom, watch the clouds scud along the distance Blue Ridge peaks, and sip (?) some of the wines provided for the guests … don’ get no bettern’ that! Pinch a paperback from the lending library … is Robert Ludlum OK? “Southern Living” magazine? Roger that.

A highlight, THE highlight, of the Cove (and there are many) is Dave’s breakfasts ... “I do not repeat the menus … “ Fresh fruits, home-baked biscuits, blueberry butter, omeletes, cup-baked “pan” cakes ... and eggs as you-like-them. Keeps a guy (and his gal) goin’ until evening, I’d say.

Sweet well water, too.

Evening has lightly chilled reds and whites for the veranda and rockers. I burned a bag of microwave p-corn …

Mariah and Dave’s “Henson Cove” have brochures from local IOIs such as a local trail riding stable (“Chunky Gal” ... they get a plus-10 rating for a well-orchestrated ride and on a non-trivial route), “freebie” slips to nearby wineries – we hit “Crane Creek” and “Hightower” … with complementary “tastings” (of course, we bought bottles) – and a reservation call to “The Chophouse of Hiawassee” … who does not like the then attending 20%-off deal?

They are well-versed in the are re: eats, GA vs. NC likker laws, roads, wines, nature … and even in-depth discussions about Formula 1 automobile competition!

Did I forget to mention the chocolate strawberries?

Good ... I’m keepin’ ‘em ALL for myself!

Major upsides to the area: friendly, courteous people, well-kept, so GREEN green that it makes your teeth hurt.

Mariah and Dave only have three rooms … plus a remote cabin … they stagger the breakfasts so no one is inundated and crowded. Damn, we loved it!
