After 20 years of raising a family in the heat and humidity in Texas we wanted to move to an area where the climate is cooler and where there are many recreational opportunities. Hendersonville fulfilled all of our desires: mountains, rivers and forest trails, as well as local history, and great shopping and restaurants. So in April 2015 we moved from Houston to Hendersonville and purchased a property where we could easily accommodate visits from our three grown children and their families. When our family is not visiting, we are delighted that other people can enjoy the beauty, the views and the quiet which The Garden Cottage offers. We have loved the lush springs, glorious falls, pleasant summers and temperate winters.
Georgina loves to garden, and has created a new garden adjacent to The Garden Cottage. It is still a work in progress but she is happy to be in an environment which reminds her of growing up in England. You might see her weeding, watering and planning her next project. Gardening suggestions, thoughts and ideas are always welcome! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do, and that you can take time to wander around and make yourself at home, enjoy the views or sit quietly on the garden bench with a book. Georgie also is a volunteer gardener for the Flat Rock Playhouse.
Bob is a website designer mainly for Christian churches and ministries. He works from home and offices in the Woodlands Cottage also located on the property. We attend, and are active at, Biltmore Church in Hendersonville.
We warmly welcome you to The Garden Cottage and would like to make your stay as enjoyable as possible! Please do not hesitate to let us know if there is anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable.
