"First I would like to thank Doug and Kathy for being so awesome. We were coming to the area for work instead of vacation (which ended up being a little bit of both). Our schedule was not set in stone unlike vacationers so thank you Doug and Kathy with working with us on the schedule. The property is just amazing to look out and see the pond and the Toe River. One of the contractors stayed with us a couple of nights he is an avid fly fisherman and thoroughly enjoyed being out on the river. My 3 year old caught the most fish with his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle pole in the pond. Everyday we would see deer, turkey and would watch Osprey catch fish in the river as well. The trains came by sporadically my son absolutely loved them the engineers only honked if we were waving to them. As far as closest grocery stores about a nice 15 minute drive into town. Also for the travelers that cannot get away from the internet and need phone service since we travel we have a wifi jetpack for our internet, it worked better at the Coal Train house than at our home just outside of Atlanta and our phone service was perfect. If you need a little more room or the Coal Train house is too big they are building a one bedroom cabin on the next hill over that should be ready anytime. Our two dogs never once barked at the train. We all enjoyed our stay so much. We would come back and highly recommend."

"Wow, what a view from this property. House was nicely decorated. Plenty of space for a large family. Nice walking trails from the house. This is a very comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. Great neighbors, were very friendly. We really enjoyed our stay. Loved the front deck. Would highly reccommend this property to truly relax, unwind and soak up the nature! Peace and tranquility awaits."

"Easy to find and beautiful setting along a rushing creek. Close (6 miles) to the quaint little town of Bakersville where they have wonderful walking trail along another beautiful creek. Also close (8 miles) to the Summit of Roan Mountain where you can walk on the Appalachian trail and about an 75 minute drive to Asheville for enjoying the Biltmore estates and other interesting sites along the way. The house itself is adequate with full Frig. and two burner love along with oven and microwave and has a large deck with gas Bar-b-que. The house does have a bit of a musty smell (especially when you first arrive) but after a few days being there that seemed to get better. Overall we really enjoyed our 16 day stay there and would certainly stay there again."

"My wife and I just returned from a three night stay at pumpkin Patch. The house is perfect. Exceptionally clean and well decorated. Everything you could need. A well provisioned kitchen with gas cooking. Even a grill out on the deck. WiFi, nice television and cable if you want it. Very comfortable beds. We would love to go back. If you like pottery and local artists then the area around Bakersville is loaded with artist studios and shops."
