We had a wonderful stay at this mountain retreat with all the comforts home sans the noise and stress of the city. The house has been designed with the discerning visitor in mind. The view from the balcony is excellent and the noise of the river running through the property very soothing. The three hour drive from Charlotte was easy even at night. We would recommend this getaway very highly.

I had the pleasure in taking my wife and children for a week end in a "Scenic Marvel". Nestled within woodland is this highly quality holiday home with all it's state of the art facilities, along with a very high standard of cleanliness and tranquil  surroundings to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing break, to re-energise you from the regular hustle and bustle of city life..
Situated not far off from the famous Blue Ridge Park Mountains yet close enough to local amnesties to do your shopping for groceries etc...
There were  lots of places to see within close proximity, whether it be a boat ride in the lake Holston, or a trip to a local farm or just a casual walk by the creek....
 With all these possibilities, all around you we had a Great time and would highly recommend if one were to rent out for their break...!!!

With my family of 4 we stayed in this cottage for a week in August 2011 including a weekend. This 2 level cottage in the mountains in Bristol, VA has a cool modern design; overlooking natural water creek. Rooms are spacious, well designed and each have their own restrooms. Built in a very quite environment, do not hear any noises except the noise of the water running down the creek. The Mountain View from both floors is very pleasant. In the mornings we enjoyed the beauty of the sunrise, moving clouds and at times we enjoyed the haze look with half the mountain covered with fog, etc. The best thing about this cottage is how close and convenient it is to all essential services like getting groceries, gas for vehicle, entertainment, etc. Access to location is pretty good with country style well paved roads. We will definitely consider returning to this vacation home again in the future. We will have no difficulty in highly recommending this cottage to any one that seeks a good quite vacation spot to enjoy nature.

From finding the property to checking on availability to paying and checking in, the owners made everything easy and simple and made us feel welcome. The house and location were excellent. Love the boat ride on the South Holston Lake. Thanks for arranging it. We'll be back, and we've told our friends and family about it.

We spent our vacation at this Breathe Easy cottage hiding in a large  mountain natural forest.
It was so relaxing and wonderful and had some good quality family time. I had one of the best vacations of my life!!!
Everyone had a wonderful time at the cottage. We were all so sad to leave.
You have a wonderful place.
It was an experience that we will all treasure.
