"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."

"That is the only word I can use to describe the Pumpkin Patch Chalet! We were in town for the Apple Butter Festival. Last year and this year we had a booth to sale our books - A Life for Nancy, Daughter of Frankie Silver and Pen in Hand, David Parker Civil War Letters. We were so lucky to get the Pumpkin Patch as it has wonderful reviews and I can see why everyone would want to stay there.
The Pumpkin Patch is more equipped with necessities than any other cabin we have ever rented. The kitchen is amazing, the beds comfortable, the décor fits right in with the awesome view of Roan Mountain.
You need not bring anything but food, drink and clothes for a wonderful weekend at the chalet. You can bet we will be visiting again!!!

"My family and I arrived on Thanksgiving Eve and stayed the remainder of the week. The cottage was very peaceful and had everything we needed for our stay. The owners were very pleasant and accommodating. It snowed on Thanksgiving and our boys had a fabulous time playing in it. We also saw several frolicsome deer. If you'd like to get away from it all, this is the place to stay."
