Loved our stay at the Bond cottage!
The Bond cottage exceeded our expectations, even though the listing was already impressive. The location was perfect for the family wedding and the accommodation was clean, cozy, roomy and comfortable. The hosts were welcoming and friendly. We had a great time and the rest of the family was pretty envious of our glowing remarks. We were able to easily take walks for fun or food or coffee, drive to event venues easily, spread out a little in the cottage and enjoy leisure time and sleep soundly. Our highest recommendations for anyone considering a stay.

Home away from home
From the minute we found the house, we were treated like old friends. Welcoming and gracious, Cara gave us a tour and showed us how things worked- turned on the gas fireplace in the kitchen. The rooms are comfortable, large and beautifully decorated. All of our needs were met- extremely comfortable beds and furniture, phone chargers, shaving cream, half and half, coffee, you name it. 5 minutes from Atrium Health Wake Forest Hospital, the reason for this visit. It is so quiet and lovely we can’t wait to return. It seemed that Daniel Craig was just around the corner. Oh, byo gin; all the accoutrements for making a martini are there, including olives! You need to experience it yourself. We plan to take a few books and enjoy the house for a week getaway. It is a true delight. Susan and Jay

Clever & Meticulous
Thoroughly enjoyed my first stay with my family in this great property. The hosts have thought of everything guests might need or want. The James Bond theme made the experience particularly enjoyable. Loved the fireplaces, overall ambiance, and carefully thought-out small details. The cottage was very clean and well-appointed. Will most definitely return when in Winston-Salem!
