What a beautifully decorated cottage in an incredible community! We stayed in January and loved it. We can only imagine how lovely it would be to enjoy the amenities in summer! The view is so lovely and peaceful. It was also IMMACULATE!! It was as if we were the very first people ever to stay clean!! Two things I would recommend to the owner. First, a binder with instructions for the TV/VCR, a channel guide and instructions on how to turn on the fireplace. Just a small little thing, but helpful. Second, the cottage is listed to sleep 7 and mentions a futon and a sleeper sofa in addition to two queen beds. There was no bedding provided for the futon or the sleeper sofa. And FYI, the futon is not a standard size. It's nice for a small child. But these are EASY fixes and it's a WONDERFUL place!! We plan to come back for sure!!

Barbara H. My family and I very much enjoyed the Chocolate Cottage. Home was very clean and well decorated. We all enjoyed using the kayaks and canoe. My daughter and her boyfriend especially enjoyed fishing on the lake, while my husband and I took advantage of exploring all the hiking trails right in Connesstee Falls. We also checked out the waterfalls in both Dupont and Pisgah Forests. I recommend also taking a short drive into SC to visit Bald Rock and see the spectacular view from there. Would certainly stay at this rental again!

Ellen S. The Chocolate Cottage was the perfect choice. It was nicely decorated with a well equipped kitchen, comfortable seating and beds, a large deck overlooking Lake Atagahi and it included the use is 2 kayaks, a canoe and a row boat. The cottage is located within walking distance to the park that has a sandy beach for swimming. We had daily early morning and late afternoon visits from a deer family
and enjoyed watching the chipmunks and birds. The grill on the deck was great for cooking steak, hamburgers and hot dogs and we liked the outside dining at The Square Root restaurant in downtown Brevard. Another great place for cocktails outside is Canyon Kitchen in Sapphire. The views while enjoying libations relaxing in Adirondack chairs are magical. Hiking in DuPont State Forest is highly recommended to see beautiful waterfalls. We want to come back next year.

The interior of the home was decorated nicely and very clean. We had no cell service and wifi was not reliable. Mattresses were terribly uncomfortable; however the couch was cozy. Description and photos of exterior were not accurate. There is no grassy, fenced area near the dock with a stone path (as shown in a photo). One canoe seat was broken and only 1 very small life jacket available, therefore only 1 person use it. (We were told prior to arrival that 4 life jackets were available. Since only 1 was available, the children were not able to kayak,canoe,swim) The dock chairs were literally coming apart and no propane in the grill. The home itself was comfortable and community amenities were very nice and enjoyable.
Turnkey customer service was unacceptable. They took hours to respond to text and hold time on the phone was over an hour. Our problem was never resolved and a discount was not given despite hours dealing with Turnkey. I would not chose to rent thru Turnkey again.
