As former innkeepers, we understand that today’s travelers are looking for privacy and relaxation. We’ve built Fernwood Cottage as a guest house adjacent to our home so you, too, can enjoy the peace and quiet of our 20-acre mountain cove with lake and walking trails. Walk through the woods dotted with wildflowers and around the lake; then under a rhododendron canopy and up the hill overlooking the cove.

Hike, read, and relax. Watch the bluebirds, woodpeckers, wild geese, mallard ducks, and other wildlife visit our mountain lake. Truly private – but only one mile from shopping, restaurants, and movies.

If you’re choosing lodging in Andrews, NC, or looking for a Murphy, North Carolina cabin rental, we know you’ll be happy with Fernwood Cottage.
