  • Must Stay!


    This is a hidden gem nestled in the mountains with spectacular views and solitude. Yet only takes minutes to the main road to take you wherever you desire. The place was wonderful inside and EXTREMELY clean. I would definitely stay there again.

  • Cabin close to ashevy


    Nice cabin, great screened in porch. Double bed Squeaks Everytime you move when in bed, comfortable but can't move or turn over without everyone in the cabin hearing.

  • Good overall, Terrible check-in


    When we arrived after 15 hours of travel, the lock box didn’t work and we could not access the key. We could not contact the property manager because of his bad service on his cell phone. It went straight to voicemail over and over. We had to get our kids back in the car and rent a hotel room for 300 dollars at 8:30 at night. The property manager did not get our messages until after 11 that night. The rest of the week was good and we enjoyed the property. We understand that things happen, but also think that communication should have been easier.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Jeremy, we take it seriously when guests let us know that we missed the mark. The homeowner would like to share the following: "I sincerely apologize for the malfunction with the lockbox but was happy to address the matter as quickly as possible. I hope the measures taken helped to make up for the inconvenience and am glad you were able to enjoy the rest of the week!"

  • We'll be back!


    Great location! The cabin was clean. We loved the patio, the screened porch, and the fireplace. Easy to get to hiking trails, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Asheville, etc. Our family met up for a non-traditional Thanksgiving and loved every minute. Thank you!
