5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2011

This was our first experience at a B&B and it felt like going to visit a long lost friend. The food was wonderful. The best was so comfortable the first day we didn't want to leave it. The view was spectacular what a great mountain view! We will be back!

My Husband found Dave and mariah's romantic getaway through a living social advertisement and made reservations for my birthday weekend. I am always cautious when anyone other than myself makes hotel or b&b arrangements because I am so particular about researching everything from amenities to the linen count. My husband knows this but I was still a little concerned about what to expect. When we arrived, I was pleasantly surprised that Henson Cove was neatly tucked away in a wooded setting, with an incredible peaceful energy. Mariah was very welcoming and accommodating, and provided loads of information on the hiking and mountain biking trails we planned to explore throughout the weekend. The cove is strategically located so that everything was only a 15 or 20 min drive max. Shortly after we arrived, there was an afternoon wine and cheese social (we only saw one other couple) which was just lovely. We slept in the hideaway room where we experienced incredible night mountain breezes, affording some of the best sleep ever. We woke to the sound of wonderful birds chirping, and fresh morning mountain air causing me to concentrate on every breath to take it all in. The breakfast (both mornings) were meticulously prepared, timed perfectly and absolutely delicious....puffed pancakes ...homemade berry butter and my veggie omelet were just fantastic. I used the hammock near the cottage to meditate in the mornings and knew this was a special we had to return. Thank you so much Dave and Mariah for an unforgettable romantic retreat from our hectic city lives...we are scheduled to return this Fall with family and friends for sure!!!

Room Tip: Book early!

If you like falling asleep to the sounds of chirping crickets and other summer night sounds of nature, this is the place for you. Mariah and Dave, our hosts, have a well-appointed, nicely-decorated "home away from home" and go out of their way to make your stay a pleasant and comfortable one. This was our first visit with them and no doubt not our last. The king-size mattress was especially comfortable and the homemade breakfast the next morning was scrumptious - apple filled french toast, bacon, fresh fruit....

Dave and Mariah:

Thank you so much for all of your hospitality. We can't remember the last holiday family gathering that was this enjoyable. You both went WAY out of your way for the food and drink for happy hour. Having the other guests bring their parents and our family with our parents and friends was GREAT! Everyone loved the place and the other guests welcomed us with smiles and laughs (one of the best times we have had in a looong time).

The Mountain View from the porch is the BEST, especially with the special coffee! We loved the cabin as did the girls; it is so cozy – especially with the fireplace and the fire pit fire made the evening. Your breakfasts are the BEST and should be in a cookbook (oh yea they are – we bought one). Everything you both did made this the most memorable getaway for us. Thanksgiving dinner at the Old Hiawassee Grille was the BEST (as you said it would be). This will be our family Thanksgiving getaway from now on. What a peaceful place just to get away (3 days was not enough), but we will be back next year for sure. The little touches, how clean the whole place is you both make it so wonderful! We loved watching Dave (in his Pillsbury dough boy apron) and you cook on that 1929 stove was priceless. Keep it up, you two were meant do this. We cannot thank you two enough! See you real soon and have a happy holiday

If you like Bed and Breakfasts, Henson Cove is a must! Everything was just perfect down to the complimentary champagne in our room for our anniversary complete with flowers and double-dipped strawberries .
The pasture mountain view from the front porch and from our room is spectacular! The house is a VERY quaint farm house that is beautifully furnished throughout with wood everywhere.
Mariah keeps the rooms and common areas immaculate.
Hosts Mariah and Dave will definitely pamper you (especially with the Saturday Happy Hour). They will recommend and even make dinner reservations for you. The breakfast served each morning was the best, from summer eggs with sausage to peach french toast, hickory smoked bacon, homemade strawberry bread, fresh fruit, homemade butters, coffee and orange juice. Everything was 5-star quality!
If you are looking to relax for a weekend, this is the place.

Well after a much needed vacation we decided to head up to the north Georgia Mountains and try and find a hunble but nice B&B. After reading Dr. Freeman’s write up about Henson Cove Place and some research on the net, we decided to go with Henson Cove Place. We stayed in the Cove Cabin which is FULLY self sufficient and is laid out nicely. Although the Cove Cabin can sleep up to 3 couples it is also the perfect size for just 2 people as well. Nestled on the 1.6 acres back in the woods and away from the B&B, it made it us feel like we were in the woods far from the fast life. The hammock felt like heaven with leaves falling all over us and was like heaven raining down on us. After two days it wa hard to pack up and leave, but tust me we WILL be back and soon. To sum it up it was piece and quite and VERY relaxing witht he landscaping adding to the ambience. Trails and antiques abound all around the Henson Cove Place and nothing was more than 30 minutes away. We highly recommend this B&B and Cabin to anyone who is looking to get away from the fast life if just for a day or even a week.

We have been to a lot of B&B's, but this one stands out. Not only is it relaxing the hosts Mariah and Dave were GREAT! Afternoon snacks and a happy hour finish off the day after a fantastic breakfast that will blow your socks off. Mariah's Blueberry Casserole (picked from thier back yard and huge) was heaven on earth. Coffee was ready at 7:30 AM and the Mountian View is spectacular. Close to everything we wanted to see. Highly Recommended.
