GILI'S COVE COTTAGE...woods, nature, serenity. Fall asleep to the sounds of the rushing creek right outside your window. Enjoy morning coffee on the porch overlooking the creek, watch deer in the meadow and the geese in the pond.

Two-bedroom/two-bath cottage with split plan for privacy, sleeps six. Living room + family room allows plenty of room for you and all your gear. The living room has a gas fireplace heater with two comfy recliners. The family room has a wall of windows overlooking the creek, with an over-sized counter and wet bar. The all-season porch is screened in summer, but when the weather gets cool, the 360-degree windows allow you to still enjoy the porch, watching the creek for deer and beaver, and the gas fireplace and comfy chaise lounge provide a perfect spot for curling up with a good book. The kitchen is large, open and bright, and is fully equipped to handle meals for gatherings of all sizes. Off the kitchen is the laundry room with a wash-up sink, folding table and plenty of hanging space. Hi-speed internet with Wi-Fi means you'll never be out of touch. Also provided is a landline phone with free domestic long distance. The cottage has central heat & A/C. Pull-through driveway with carport keeps your vehicle clean and dry. The cottage sits on a wooded and lushly landscaped level lot for easy access.

Raised in New Jersey (too crowded). Chicago winters (too cold). Florida summers (too hot!). Clemson University grad (go Tigers!). And all we ever wanted to do was live in the mountains. We finally realized our dream and settled in the one of the friendliest small communities surrounded by nature's beauty which awes us every day. Peace. Nature. Tranquility. We found our serenity. Let us help you find yours at Gili's Cove Cottage.

CHECK-OUT CHECKLIST (Addendum #2): Failure to follow the instructions outlined in the Check-out Checklist may result in charge(s) against your deposit.

Evidence/odor of smoking/vaping indoors will result in charge of $300.00 against your deposit.

WATER & SEPTIC: The cabin uses a septic system. The septic system is very effective; however, it will clog up if improper material is flushed. DO NOT FLUSH anything other than toilet paper.

If it is found that feminine or other products have been flushed and cause a plumbing problem, a damage charge of $300.00 against your deposit and/or cost of repairs may be incurred.

TRASH & RECYLCING: All household trash must be bagged and tied securely and placed in the garbage cans located in the shed (lower level of playhouse).

If you fill the garbage cans during your stay, call the Owners for disposal. RECYLCING: Plastic beverage bottles, paper and cardboard, and aluminum and metal cans only; absolutely no glass. If you fill the recycling bin, call the Owners for removal.

DO NOT WALK, RUN OR PLAY ON THE AIRSTRIP. If you have a pet, it must be kept on leash and/or under your control and restrained from going on to other’s private property. If the behavior of your pet or of anyone in your party results in a complaint from a neighbor (noise, trespassing, damage to property), or if law enforcement is called to the property for any reason while you are in residence due to behavior or conditions of your tenancy, you will be required to vacate the premises immediately with no monies refunded. You are further warned to use caution when walking in or along the creek as creek waters have a strong current and rocks are slippery. You agree to supervise children at all times, especially near campfires, on the rocks and along the creek and pond areas. Be careful walking around the property as the terrain may be uneven with depressions covered by leaves.
