My family created a Christmas experience instead of the gifts that all the kids forget about 2 days later! There was so much to do and see! Not having service and being off the grid, was the best part! All the kids played outside when they could. From hiking to waterfalls, snow tubing, fishing at the trout farm, Christmas lights.....it was exactly what we all needed! Plenty of room, comfortable beds!! Definitely recommend this place if your looking!!
We spent a long weekend here with friends . The house was much nicer than expected from the pictures on VRBO. It was very clean, nicely decorated and spacious enough for a large group. We enjoyed the gorgeous views from the fire pit area. There are lots of nice waterfalls and trails in the area, about 20 min away from the house ( Toms Creek Falls, Crabtree Falls). Asheville is not too far away either, about 50 min. As for restaurants in the area, there are some nice ones in Marion ( 30 min away). Overall we enjoyed staying here. It’s the perfect place to disconnect and relax.

The mountain view from the firepit is lovely. Communication from Amy was terrific. Lots of nice coffee products and appliances. Beds were super comfy. The double range and cooktop were top of the line. One of the double fridges had broken the week before but Amy had provided a huge cooler to supplement the single fridge as it was the holidays and we are a big foodie family. House is very spacious, plenty of living space and dining area. There were a few bundles of wood for firepit which was appreciated.
The house is very much a work in progress - two porches were under construction, no hooks or places to hang jackets or extra towels. There were no dressers or drawers in bedrooms just a few hangers in each closet and an IKEA type of bench storage. Living room furniture is very much IKEA but functional.
I have my own high end rental property and have also rented all over the world and I believe the owners need to up the game in quality and full provision for that price.
Nice local toiletries, thoughtful amenities, books and brochures in the house with local hikes and restaurants to consider are the types of touches you expect at that price. It's a beautiful area to explore and should be easily accessible to a renter.
Rated the house 3 stars for the price. If it was $1000 less, I would give it 4 stars.
Hi Julie, the homeowner has asked us to share this response:
- I’m happy to hear you enjoyed the spectacular views, the spacious house, the top-of-the-line appliances, the comfortable mattresses from BedGear, and all of our efforts to make your stay even better.
- Our prices are set by a property management company and they do a great job of setting rates based on the surrounding area and the demand. As you visited over Christmas, prices were higher than usual.
- I was very disappointed by your review. We did all we could to provide an ideal stay and were happy to bring over supplies upon request and put up a Christmas tree to make your holidays even more special.
- Our house is not a work in progress. It was built two years ago and has been furnished with comfortable and functional furniture that fits well with the simple, modern decor.
- We are in the process of adding outdoor porches, as we want guests to be able to enjoy the beautiful views. While these are still under construction, this project should not impact the guest stay at all.
- There is a large framed map in the foyer with all sorts of recommendations on restaurants, grocery stores, hikes, and trails in the area; we are sorry if you missed that. We would have been happy to share our personal favorites as well had you asked.
We take pride in our property and work hard to ensure our guests enjoy themselves on vacation. We will continue to go above and beyond for all future guests.
Large newer home, clean and Amy, the host, is great to communicate with and she's always wants to make sure you're happy with the stay.We're 3 couples and all agree that the overall rating should be around 3 to 3.5 stars. However, I rounded up to 4 stars because Amy the host is very nice and I think they will get things corrected.Here are the details (Pros & Cons) based on our situation:Pros: Nice views, roughly at 2,000 ft elevation. You're in between the hills, not really on top of a hill/mountainClean, new house, and the kitchen is fully stockedLarge and comfortable bedrooms as describedAmy, the host, is very pleasant and attentive to our needsIf you're looking to be secluded and 10 miles (30 minutes) away from anything, this is the home for you.Walkie-Talkies as the property were life savers and a welcome benefit (Thank you), since there's next to no communication method at all.Cons:No Internet Service!!! While yes, there's a modem and WiFi, it is absolutely unusable except to get a text through via WiFi every now and then. We also got a few emails in and some basic web search with waiting about a minute for each page to load.It is absurd how slow the Internet is, I would not advertise that internet is available at this propertyNo TV service either!!! There's one TV in the living room and it does not have cable or satellite service, it is a Samsung Smart TV and it has the Samsung TV channels, however, the internet was buffering every 30 seconds, which made it unusable. The kids and adults were frustrated after dark with nothing to do.They have a DVD player and some old DVDs, but most of them are scratched, so we couldn't watch anything for 4 days.Outdoor covered deck, it was a nice surprise to see the owners are adding an outdoor covered patio/deck; we didn't expect that, but there's no direct access from the house, so if it is raining, you have to get wet before you get to the outdoor deck. Nonetheless, it's nice to haveThe home is 9.9 miles away from the closest grocery store, or any shopping. The road is beautiful and twisty, but that means, if you need anything, it will take 30 minutes each way to pick up, so buy everything ahead of your arrival.The lock at the gate is hard to align the digits to unlock itThe keys for the front door are difficult to operate the deadbolt, keys kept getting stuck in the deadbolt lock.Overall, nice stay; but priced well above the level of amenities provided!!! Thank you
