Jeff's great-grandfather, Andy Lyda, started Beehive and encouraged others to start growing apples.  Locals recall him saying, "There's gold in those apples."

A hundred years ago, Andy Lyda would drive a horse and wagon twelve miles to the Hendersonville train station to pick up vacationing guests.  Many guests stayed all summer at Beehive Cottages and came back year after year.  Today we have guests who have been coming here since they were children.  Come visit Edneyville and see what the BeeHive Cottages has to offer -  your vacation rental in Hendersonville, NC.
