"We can't say enough good things about this vacation home. We booked it at the last minute over 4th of July weekend for my husband and I and our 4 children. It was spacious, comfortable, clean and lovely. The open floor plan was wonderful and the kitchen was perfect with a very ample granite island that was perfect for puzzle building and game night. The owners were soooo kind and accommodating. We drive a Toyota Sienna, and we had to be brave going up the hill, but with some momentum we had no trouble getting up to our cabin. Don't let the lack of air conditioning and absence of wi-fi deter you. You don't need either one. The trees keep this cabin cool and comfortable, and who needs wi-fi when nature commands your attention to this degree. Truly a sensational weekend. FYI, our kids are 14, 12, 10 and 9, and they had a blast."

"This is the fourth year that my husband has participated in the Roan Moan cycling charity ride for the Bakersville Fire Dept. We have stayed in a different cabin each year and Pumpkin Patch was our favorite. A couple who are close friends always come with us and we had a wonderful getaway. We cooked in the kitchen which had spices, olive oil, etc. provided by owner. A very nice grill is on the deck that we loved sitting on in the evenings. The view is breathtaking and you don't need four wheel drive up a mountain. The folk art gives the cabin a real homey feel and we loved that the owner spent so much time carrying out the pumpkin theme. We thought it was adorable. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were very clean. We had no complaints at all. We bought pottery and jewelry at an Art and Dine show in Bakersville and really enjoyed our meal at Dry County Brewing and Pizza Shop. We are looking forward to staying here again next year."

If you like the photos and reviews, the Coal Train house is even better in person!!!
"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."
