“Delightful--can't wait to return!”
Reviewed July 5, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Our 7 days in the Guest House at Colonial Pines were delightful. Chris and Donna are consummate hosts--helpful and caring but not intrusive. Donna's breakfasts and afternoon "goodies" are scrumptious. Her design skills are evident in the lovely furnishings and décor. Chris administers coffee with laid-.
back humor and keeps the buildings and grounds beautifully maintained.

The setting is peaceful and quiet, yet in close proximity to Main Street. We loved watching the hummingbirds and the squirrel who hangs upside down to munch at the bird-feeder.

The apartment was spotlessly clean and attractively furnished. It's cozy, but there's plenty of space for a couple or small family. The linens and towels are in generous supply and way above average. The kitchen is well-supplied with utensils for light cooking.

As "summer refugees" from heat and humidity, we enjoyed the cool, clean mountain air and the sound of rain in the trees. We enjoyed it so much, we extended our stay and wish we could have stayed all summer. The cost is excellent for the value received. We can't wait to return!
