My husband and I are from Pittsboro and were meeting my parents from PA here. We had a great time enjoyingthe house and visiting. Great house to relax in, cook, do some sightseeing. Our visit was too short so we didn't get to visit Asheville- next time! We really appreciate your hospitality. Thank you so much!

Dear Becky -
We appreciated your considerate and prompt way of responding to us while making plans to come to the 12th Tee Lodge. It's beautiful here this time of year! Thank you for your warm & generous welcome. We all needed a relaxing and peaceful time and we got what we came for! Wish we had more time to stay but duty calls at our respective homes.

Lovely beautiful mountain home - spacious, comfortable and furnishings combine for an enviable ambiance! We loved the deck and cooked on the grill several times - after golf and hiking, we looked forward to returning to the 12th Tee, a special place in the mountains.
We hiked to Crabtree Falls, Roaring Fork Falls (twice), enjoyed the top of Mt Mitchell, two rounds of golf on the Mt Mitchell course and two rounds at Grassy Creek. We ate at the Chalet restaurant in Little Switzerland, visited at DT's coffee shop in Spruce Pine, found our favorote potter Cynthia Bringer in Penland and shopped at Ingles (a good store) and WalMart!
Thank you for the local hints and tips!
We saw deer, wild turkeys and had a visit from a racoon on the deck one night. All in all a wonderful week of relaxation and enjoyment of God's creation. Thanks for all the extras like the movie album - on a rainy day we watched 4 movies!
Hope we can return soon and often.

The perfect stay! Thank you for providing such a perfect home to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Rest and relaxation is our goal and we more than met it. Your new bathroom vanities are beautiful. The hardwoods are as well. You have nice taste and we appreciate all the care you put into this home. We explored the area including the observation deck at Mount Mitchell – had a great lunch. Can’t wait to come back to the 12th Tee. Thanks for everything!

Thanks Becky for a great vacation retreat from the hustle and bustle. The dogs and we had a wonderful time. We had two gorgeous days and two that were gray & overcast, but it didn’t matter – our intent was to relax and enjoy the beautiful view and that’s what we did! Thanks again and we’ll see you next year!

As usual we so enjoyed staying at your little slice of heaven in the woods. This is a beautiful home, with plenty to do (even in the rain!). Thank you for allowing us to be your guests once again and sharing your lovely home with us.

Thank you for sharing your home with us. We enjoyed the golf and friendship… super place to stay. All the golfers had a great time over the weekend and my wife and I had a super-relaxing second week. We will be back!

Thank you for sharing your home with us, along with your gracious hospitality. Your home is incredible – the big windows with the great views, the big relaxing deck outside with the grill (we grilled out every night here), the huge beautiful bathroom, the king sized beds, just great. Then going downstairs to find the great gameroom – what a surprise… we had such an enjoyable time here we may decide to make this a yearly trip or at least every other year. But we’ll definitely be back again… your graciousness and suggestions of places to visit made it even more enjoyable. We visited local waterfalls (Roaring Fork and Setrock Creek). My fiancée and son also walked the Appalachian Trail for seven miles, camped in a shelter and hiked out. We climbed to Clingman’s Dome, visited Cherokee, Grandfather Mountain, Blowing Rock and drove the Blue Ridge Parkway. We climbed to the top of Chimney Rock and saw Hickory Run Waterfall. That same morning we did the hot air balloon ride. It was worth it, what a ride! And of course climbed Mount Mitchell. This was a great vacation, packed with so much fun, we hope to be back next year. Thanks again for your hospitality, we really enjoyed ourselves!

We loved the 12th Tee Lodge! And what a wonderful surprise to awaken to beautiful white snow one morning! We from south of here (Alabama “Roll Tide”) don’t see this often. We, along with 3 children, enjoyed walking in the snow. The 3 children especially enjoyed the game room—and the adults as well! We want to come back again!

Upon entering the 12th Tee Lodge we were surprised and delighted! The beautiful house is spacious, tastefully furnished and whimsically enhanced. We kept noticing things throughout the week that made us smile. Truly it is a wonderful house (full of wonder!) It is also very comfortable. Everything works! The deck is especially pleasant any time of day. Our weather was splendid – warm days and cool nights. We all agree that our week at 12th Tee was one to treasure and promised ourselves a return visit.

A beautiful place! My favorite part was the cool mountin air! A nice break from the heat and humidity of Jacksonville, home of the Jaguars! Gem minimg and horseback riding were worth the long scenic drive. Mt Mitchell is absolultely awesome. We have talked about coming back in the autumn. Thanks for the well-supplied and comfortable home!

The 12th Tee – a beautiful cool visit with many rounds of golf, dinner on the deck, walks around the neighborhood and trips to Bursnville’s town square and shops! All of our time here was relaxing, comfortable and refreshing! We love the 12th Tee for its coziness, excellent accommodations, beautiful window and deck views and the stone and wood construction. A true mountain escape with all the “comforts of home.” We can’t wait to return!

Becky – Our second time in the area with you at one of your houses! We really enjoyed the 12th Tee Lodge! Everything was wonderful and we enjoyed the soccer, pool & ping pong especially. Next time, can you have the Toe River running a couple of feet higher, then the tubing would be great! J God bless you and hope to do this again next year.
Eddie and Susan W.

We had a wonderful time at t6he 12th Tee Lodge. We definitely want to go again. Thank you so much. The house and especially the game room was great.


Wanda Lamm, Fuquay Varina, NC
Throughly enjoyed the 12th Tee. The accomodations and amenities were more than adequate!Even though the weather didn't offer as much time for golf, there was plenty of fish to catch in the well stocked and maintained catch and release South Toe River.
The game room had something for everyone and was enjoyed by all (especially Ms Pacman). We are looking forward to returning to play
Mt. Mitchell
and enjoy a wonderful dinner at Albert's (great food and Albert and his family are very gracious).
Thanks for letting us stay.

Hi Becky,

I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed staying at the 12th Tee Lodge last week. It was a beautiful setting, the house was WONDERFUL, and we really enjoyed it!

Thanks so much!


Monica Davis, Charleston, SC

The house and location are absolutely wonderful! We had a wonderful time and look forward to another visit to the area in the near future. Becky, we met your aunt and dad and it was an honor. You folks are top notch in our book. Thanks for sharing your property with us!

 Just spent Labor Day weekend at the 12-tee lodge. Wish this were my home, what a great house. The furnishings and bathrooms are very nice, what a comfortable stay. My kids did not want to go back to our home. The 1200 square foot basement with a game room had something to do with their not wanting to leave. What a great area, the golf course is beautiful and the staff very friendly. Burnsville, a town 10 miles north, is a great stop and the hamburgers at the Hilltop restaurant located downtown are the best we have had in a long while. Relaxing, fun, great food, great home with all the amenities. Hike with your kids to Roaring Fork falls, and let them play in the cold water. We will be back and maybe we will try and buy it from our gracious host, but I bet she will not be selling this hidden Gem. Families you will not go wrong at the 12 Tee lodge.

Hey Becky-

Thanks again for your hospitality! We had a fabulous fortnight as usual. We noticed that you’ve done some tree-clearing off the back deck and the mountain view is magnificent! Did the usual golf, hiking, waterfalling, and we also saw “Fiddler” and “My Fair Lady” at the Parkway Playhouse and watched the Asheville Tourists beat Augusta in eleven innings with a grandslam homerun! A great game!

We also did a cool new thing up in Damascus VA: we rode bikes (coasted, actually) for 18 miles through the woods & followed a river on the Virginia Creeper Trail. $23 for the ride up to White Top Mountain including bikes and a bottle of water. Great fun.

So it was a great time. Thanks again for use of the cabin. We beat each other up on the ping pong & pool tables. See you next year!

 Had family in from FL and SC – it was wonderful! Very comfortable, nice large kitchen for cooking and beautiful surroundings. Overall, it was a perfect holiday in the mountains!

 Golf outing! Four guys from Asheville. Everything was great. The pinball machines brought back some memories of a partially misspent youth. Accomodations perfect!
 We came to enjoy the beautiful fall colors abd ride morotcycles with our friends from Ohio. You have great riding roads and we’ll come back again. We enjoyed our stay! So did our dog!

 Rode motorcycles through your beautiful countryside – the accommodations were wonderful – very comfortable – plenty of hot water – books to read – great!!!!
