Peak Mountain Cottages is on a 300 acre farm that has been in the family since 1960. It started with just the yellow cottage duplex rented to retirees escaping the Florida heat many years ago. The farm was in the middle of nowhere at the time. The temperate climate and diverse eco-system were well kept secrets! Although times have changed, we've preserved the integrity of the farm and still love to share it with you! And the best part is, you can enjoy the farm without the responsibilities!
As the years passed, the original family home, the 1920's style red cottage, was also renovated and remodeled into a duplex with 2 suites. Each suite has it's own kitchen or kitchenette and private bath so you don't share any indoor space.
The late David Covington, Jr. had wanted to build a place that people could visit and find solace from the world.. Today, we carry on that vision.
Whether you like to stay active enjoying the fresh mountain air or simply relax and enjoy the atmosphere, this is the place to be! And help is never far away. We personally look after the property and are available to assist you if needed. The farm and cottages are only about a half mile off the US Highway so access is not hard either.
Patsy (Mom) Covington is originally from Wisconsin dairy country and is a grandmother of 3. She is retired from Baxter Laboratories where she worked as a quality control technician for hospital IV solutions. She also operated a children's outdoor summer adventure camp on the property for a number of years in the 1960's and '70's.
Patsy can usually be found out and about on the property mowing, gardening, or tending something. That's if you don't find her on the roof cleaning the gutters. Mom! Get down from there! She's a real go getter.
Becky Covington Grant was born and raised in North Carolina. She's a mother of 3, a licensed real estate agent, and the owner of Blue Ridge Horse Adventures, Inc. She carries on the tradition of summer camps, mostly day camps now, and retreats for grown ups too. She's survived raising 3 teenagers and loves to hike, take care of the animals, garden, and generally do just about anything outside. You'll find her mowing, grading the road, gardening, or teaching about horses. She tries to keep up with Patsy! She's knowledgeable about the property and the area so feel free to ask.
