You are steps from the saltwater pool. Q bed upstairs with roomy living area. Downstairs: stone shower, big screen, full sized futon, kitchenette with eating/meeting area. Very near, Bryant Field, Old Town, Winthrop University, Giordana Velodrome, BMX Supercross, Lake Wylie access, Riverwalk Trail, Manchester Meadows, Disc Golf Championship and South Pointe High School.

Quiet two-story retreat with covered porches, pool, rockers, grill and lovely gardens. Private upstairs has a lodge-like feel with a queen bed, sitting area with a big couch (will sleep 1 adult) and lots of floor space for extra sleepers. Two platform twin inflatable mattress and a queen inflatable platform bed are available. We supply linens. Pool is a deepwater saltwater pool. Main floor has a full sized futon, 2 entrances, big TV, sports decor, an ice machine, standard fridge, small convection oven and microwave. Great place to watch the game! The area is lighted with landscape lighting at night and we decorate for holidays. There are several outdoor living rooms, one with a fireplace, patio heater and gas barbecue grill, a covered porch and poolside pergola. We have a private parking area and entrance over a running stream to the cottage. I am a caterer and arrangements can be made for breakfast, stocking the fridge or food service for any meeting or event.
Zinnia Cottage is totally separate from the main house. Guests are free to wander the 2.5 acres that include flower and vegetable gardens, a small pond with good fishing, the pool and outdoor living areas.
We live in the main house. We have cats (Lulu, Q and Diz) all are friendly and do not spend time in the cottage, unless invited. We aren't retired yet so most days it is very quiet around here. The pool is very private with large banana tress separating cottage from main house. I am a Master Gardener, chef and food service coordinator at a local camp and conference center. I am around a lot during the off-season, enjoying the gardens. We like having guests, but you are free to enjoy your privacy too. We are available through text during you stay if you need anything.
During the cold weather months you can enjoy lovely sunsets, cocktails, s'mores and cocoa by the outdoor fireplace. You can also fish in the pond and enjoy a bonfire out in the field.
We appreciate finding Zinnia Cottage the way you found it and guests' behavior fitting a suburban neighborhood. Quiet after 11:30 PM. Light cooking in kitchen area, no greasy cooking.
