  • Mixed feelings on this stay


    My wife and I rent a cabin in NC at least once a year for the last 8+ years and typically have great experiences with the cabins overall. This cabin had some things we really enjoyed, but also a few that left us feeling a bit disappointed. Pros:1. We loved the privacy of the cabin, there are no other cabins or homes within view. We usually have other cabins nearby, so the privacy of this cabin was awesome! 2. The hot tub was a 6 person hot tub. It was not in the photos for the cabin, so I had some concerns about it.3. The beds were comfortable, which is very important. We both slept well for the most part. 4. Quiet/Peaceful - The area was pretty quiet most of the time, allowing you to enjoy the sounds of nature. You do occasionally hear the road noise, but not too terribly often. Cons:1. The cabin was not as clean as it could be in our impression. We had a cockroach in our bedroom, and the first night my wife and I were both woken up by something crawling on us in the dark. Half the dishes we pulled out were dirty. Most of the pots/pans and dishes had a heavy greasy film on them and the knives were dirty. We re-washed everything before using it after that. The red chair in the living room was very worn which makes it look dirty even if it isnt really dirty. It definitely gives you an uneasy feeling about sitting on the furniture, sleeping in the beds, etc., as you begin to question the cleanliness. 2. The entrance to the property is very dangerous. The weeds have grown up so high at the road that you cannot see down the road either way. Cars tend to pick up speed on this straightaway, probably 40mph+. I would have to get out of my car, walk to the road, and then jump in to get out quick as the cars come quick around the curves. It was actually quite scary! 3. I would suggest removing the single tree growing up on the walkway, it is hard to carry items past that tree on a narrow walk. 4. Toilet wouldnt flush well, plugged several times. 5. Tub was difficult and awkward. Shower curtains go around it and touch you on both sides. There is nowhere to put your products, the little hanger doesnt stay up with products in it. 6. Not enough towels/washcloths for two people for 4 days to use with hot tub and shower. There is not a washer/dryer, a few more towels would be helpful. 7. Hot tub had sandy grit on the seats, edges, felt uncomfortable to sit on. Didnt feel clean

  • Awesome!


    Stayed here for a few nights with my wife. Awesome location. Within 30 minutes of town and multiple hiking trails and waterfalls. Definitely coming back in the future.

    The property was beautiful, the owner was very easy to work with and always offering his assistance no matter what. If you're looking for a quiet getaway this is definitely the place to go, we will be back for sure!
