  • Rain did not dampen our stay.


    Cabin was clean, modern and cozy. Weather was on the cool side, but the electric wall heaters functioned well to keep us warm. The kitchen had all the pots and dishes we needed to cook full meals. Our hosts were attentive, and available to answer questions. They had stocked the cabin with movies and board games, and provided a strong wifi signal. It was a great place to relax after a long day at Merlefest.

    The cabin was close to the park (about a ten minute drive). It had a queen bed in one room with a half bath and a twin bed and a bunk bed set with a full size bed on bottom in the second bedroom. Their was a full bath with tub shower off the hall. The gas fireplace added to the ambiance. The best part was how the owner had stuff to make s'mores in the firepit. There were also condiments and some sodas from prior tenants in the frig. She left us some snacks as well. Perfect little place for a girl's weekend!

  • Nest for family Thanksgiving gathering nearby


    Very peaceful and quiet cottage nestled in rhododendron grove and forest. Mount Retreat road could use a little maintenance following what appeared to be some recent washout at the beginning of the road just after the turn from Green House Rd. That didn't cause any problem, it was just a little rough. The cottage interior is freshly renovated and clean. The kitchen is fully equipped for preparing most meals. I cooked breakfasts, dinners, and prepared pie, cake, and casserole to take to the family Thanksgiving dinner in the next county. I was glad I brought my hand mixer and 9" cake pans, just in case, as I didn't expect to find these items.Location is great! There are 3 lovely golf courses within a mile of the cottage. We found a choose and cut Christmas tree farm within a few miles, near the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway where you will find breathtaking vistas. Sparta is only 15 minutes away if you need groceries or want to shop for arts, crafts, or gifts, grab dinner, or hangout in a brewery. Stone Mountain State park is nearby with great for hiking.

  • Cozy cabin in the mountains


    Roaring Gap is a beautiful area and the cabin is cozy, well appointed, and very comfortable. It has plenty of entertainment, such as games, puzzles, books, fire pit with fixings for s’mores. We went hiking up Stone Mountain while we were there. It was a very nice time.
