    Everything was perfect! The view and the wraparound deck was the absolute highlight. Great decor, spacious, easy to find. Fire pit and wood was appreciated. Did I mention the VIEWS? And the stars! Ground coffee would have been nice, its not exactly easy to just swing by the store up and down the mountain, just a suggestion ;)

    The cabin was large, clean and just as promised. The view was amazing, you can’t beat it. I really enjoyed the stay and would stay again.

    The perfect getaway we were searching for! Secluded, quiet and absolutely beautiful! The views are spectacular! The cabin was decorated beautifully, everything was clean, convenient, brand new. Hubby, myself and two friends had more than enough room. The oversized deck was awesome to drink coffee in the morning and enjoy the view. We used the fire pit outside during the crisp night out while sitting on the swing but the best treat was definitely the overlook extending from the screened-in porch. If you love the mountain views, quiet seclusion and fresh air, this paradise is for you! We will definitely be back :)

    Beautiful, quiet, secluded, clean (almost everything looked brand new). We utilized the fire pit while relaxing on the swing under the stars. The view is absolutely amazing! Hubby, myself and two friends had more than enough room, oversized screened-in porch. But the real treat was the overlook extending from the porch. We loved it and hope to return every season. Thank you so much for a much needed R & R getaway :)
