Mariah, Dave and Family

Have known each other for over 27 years and have been together for over 18 years. Mariah has a daughter, Rainy, and two grandsons, Kalen and Roan who live in Jacksonville, FL. Dave's son, Christian lives in Sunrise, FL. Dave's mother, Angela lives on the property as well and you may see her at happy hour. She has some great stories to tell if you have the time. As the third owners, Dave and Mariah have operated Henson Cove Place for over nine years. The B&B has been in business for over 23 years. As your hosts, they will do their best to assist their guests in finding things to see and do, and great places to eat while in the Hiawassee area. There are two cats on the property. Muggs was adopted from a shelter two years ago and stays in the owner's cottage. Weber adopted us about two years ago. He was totally wild and Mariah had him tamed within three months, but is a little shy of strangers. Weber is a sweetheart and you will see him roaming the property and beyond.

Come on, Relax... Reservations
