Rachel did a wonderful job making us feel at home before we even arrived. It's a beautiful location and we stayed in Cottage 2. Wonderful things to do all around the area and we definitely hope to come back again.

Rockledge Cottage 1
Cute, clean cottage
We loved staying at Rachel’s cottage, and we will be back. There are three cottages, and we stayed in Cottage 1. It was exceptionally clean and very comfortable, with cute decor. There is a coffee maker, coffee grinder, teapot, one burner hot plate, and a heavy duty toaster oven (can actually cook a chicken). We had everything we needed in the kitchen. Rachel was very responsive and helpful. We had no complaints! We recommend the hike from Pen Mar Park on the Appalachian Trail to High Rock (follow the white blazes once you go south on the AT from the park). It was about 6 miles to High Rock and back and included a strenuous uphill portion. You would want sturdy shoes and to be in decent shape. You can also access the beautiful view at High Rock by car if you want to skip the hike.

Rockledge Cottage 3
Loved it ! Would happily return.
Wonderful stay at Rockledge. Beautiful setting. Very clean cottage. The wall units worked great for heating the rooms. Plenty of hot water. Adorable kitchen with everything we needed, all seemingly-new, and very useful amenities/ appliances. The cottage was quiet, as well: each cottage is a separate building and only connected by the long porch, something that was not clear to me in the photo. (I thought they were all connected, like a motel strip. Not true.) Rachel & Co. were very helpful in providing a couple “extra” things we asked for, too, and quick to respond to questions through the HipCamp website.

Rockledge Cottage 1
This is a beautiful place. The cabins were so cool with lots of character and lots of space. They overlook beautiful mountains with great sunrise views. We came just before peak fall color change but I bet the leaves will be amazing to see from here. There are tons of easily accessible trails and sites nearby. Pen Mar park is gorgeous and so is High Rock. Definitely recommend!

Rockledge Cottage 2
Home comfort yet outdoor amenities
Loved the fire pit and the sunrise. Rachel was a wonderful host. She was available when needed and yet also allowed privacy.
