Master Bedroom: King Bed | Bedroom 2: Queen Bed | Bedroom 3: Twin-over-Twin Bunk Bed
Bring your outdoor gear and the kids along to this cozy cottage located in the Lilly Pad Village, a family activity destination offering gem mining, fishing and mini golf. Throughout your stay, you’ll enjoy all of these activities, along with picturesque views of the beautiful pond, surrounded by the serene sounds of nature and the joyful laughter of other guests. Though there may be other guests in the village during the day, you’ll have the entire property to yourself after hours!
Wake up to sip your morning coffee on the cottage’s private front porch before heading down to the fully stocked private pond to enjoy catch-and-release fishing. If it’s chilly outside, huddle close to the pondside fire pit while fishing.
Most of your time will likely be spent outside, listening to frogs serenading you at night and enjoying the multitude of songbirds keeping your spirits up during the day. But the great vibes and good energy don’t stop there! Step inside the charming cottage to be welcomed with warm colors, inviting decor and comfortable furnishings.
Hardwood floors lead you throughout the open living space, connecting the living room, dining area and kitchen. Cook up a hearty meal in the fully equipped kitchen, where ample counterspace and all of the necessary cookware make it easy to prepare meals for the whole group.
Gather around the 4-person dining table beside the lovely gas fireplace to enjoy meals with your loved ones, or head out to the covered porch to wine and dine with a view of the pond.
End memorable days at this cozy cottage with a movie night in the living area offering 2 comfy couches and a flat-screen TV with Amazon, HBO and Netflix streaming capabilities.
By nighttime, sleep will come easy in any of the bedroom’s plush beds, including the master bedroom’s king bed, the second bedroom’s queen bed, and the kids’ bedroom’s bunk bed.
Although you may never want to leave this peaceful property, you’ll have to force yourself to venture out, as this cottage is ideally located for exploration in the Aska Adventure Area!
If you’re looking for bigger waters and larger fish than what you’re pulling in from the private pond, head to Blue Ridge Lake or the Toccoa River for a whole other fishing scene!
Put on your hiking boots and head to one of the nearby scenic hiking trails, including Fall Branch Falls and Stanley Gap TA.
Whenever you’re not cooking at the cottage, make your way just a half mile to the Toccoa Riverside Restaurant, where you can enjoy beautiful river views along with the best fresh trout in the area.
Before you leave, be sure to visit the charming downtown area of Blue Ridge, just 8 miles from the cottage. Here, you can pick up the perfect souvenir at one of the town’s many art galleries or antique stores. Once you’ve picked up your keepsake, sample old-fashioned southern cuisine at Southern Charm, grab a good brew at Blue Ridge Brewery, and savor dessert at Three Sisters Fudge.

Lovely cabin with more space than expected. The cabin was in great shape with lots of condiments, towels, a good kitchen, good bathroom and all the basics. We received excellent service from Geza Csuros, the rental agent before, during and after the trip. Having said that, we paid a price to deal with a rental agency. The cabin was in a very odd location for our uses. It?s literally part of a little family village activity area, probably the old snack shop. So you are rarely alone during 9-5. Folks come looking on the front porch for snacks. It can be awkward. Further, you?re located directly on a very loud two-lane highway that is never quiet. The ?waterfront? is a small brown stocked pond where the public can fish all day. You have much longer access. It?s a great activity for the younger kids but nothing serious. I would never consider getting in the dirty water so was disappointed there would be no swimming. Kids can also get mine on site but ours were a bit old. We were really looking for a cabin farther into the woods and truly on swimmable water so this wasn?t a good choice for us. However, Dad and the tweens did enjoy some simple fishing anyway.

Lynn, thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We have passed along your comments to the homeowner who has the following to say:
Thank you for the nice comments on my property.
Just a few points:
I am the owner and not an agent and I live but a few minutes away, hence the amazing and truly personalized service all our guests receive daily.
Also, nowhere in the property description do we mention swimming, even though the house is waterfront, facing our absolutely charming fishing pond, which can get loud at night with all the frogs, cicadas - sound of birds in the mornings.
We are also very clear in the description of the property that the house is located at the Lilly Pad Village, a family activity center, so it should not have come as a surprise. You and your family may have had a bit more activity around you when you were here as you visited in July - the busiest month of the year for the entire area. For this I apologize although it is certainly beyond my control.
I am glad, however, that all in all your family seemed to have had a good time - I wish your kids would have tried Gem Mining - there is no such a thing as ‘too old’ for this.
Thanks again for staying at the Lilly Pad. Hope to see you all soon perhaps in the Fall or Spring when the area is more enjoyable."
We appreciate your valuable feedback! Best, the Evolve Team
Amazing! Our stay was so pleasant. The home is beautiful, the landscape is gorgeous. The gem mining, miniature golfing and a pond to fish in right at the door step made it even more pleasant. The staff and owner are WONDERFUL people. Loved hearing the story of how the owner built the miniature golf course. Best weekend trip we've taken so far and we do this a lot. This is a perfect "Family get-a-way", especially with young ones. The perfect spot to say, "this was our granddaughters first gem mining experience, first miniature golfing experience, first river tubing experience was" and we thank you Geza for the opportunity for the first time experiences with our granddaughter.

We loved the Cabin and the owners were nice and attentive. Our kids fished in the pond and played mini-golf. It was near to hiking trails, town and the river. We will be back.
