"Wow will be your first word when you walk in this one. The unit is beautifully furnished but that pales in comparison to what you'll see when you walk up to any window. There's nothing quite like looking DOWN on clouds! A truly unique experience awaits you on this one. It's one of the very highest (4500') units in Mountain Air, and one of the very few that allows you to walk to all the amenities--pool, clubhouse, etc. You have to experience this place once in your lifetime."

"We stayed at the cabin for 4 nights in mid-July. Where to start? The weather was wonderful - low to mid 80s during the day while the lowlands were in the 90s - had a couple of short, passing showers but they only lasted a few minutes. Surprisingly (or maybe this is normal) there were no ticks, no biting flies and no mosquitoes although we were prepared with sprays. We are a family of 3 who also brought our dog (thank you for allowing her, she loved the river and hiking with us). The cabin was the perfect size for us, and it was very clean and included all the amenities so we were far from roughing it but still got to enjoy nature. We brought most of our food and stopped at the grocery for a few items on the way to the cabin, so we used the kitchen and grill for every meal and they were great. Every day we had breakfast, then hit a site (Mount Mitchell, Craggy Gardens, Crabtree Falls, and a few general hikes off the roadsides), then we spent the afternoons and evenings until sundown playing on the river in the tubes and kayaks. The river was clean and clear. What a great spot for a cabin too, having the small rapids right in front of the cabin and then the calm area right after that to swim, kayak, and lazily tube. It was a bit of everything - perfect! It was just really nice to be close enough to some attractions (Mount Mitchell, Craggy Gardens, Crabtree Falls) yet be away from the crowds and such. Totally recommend driving on the Blue Ridge Parkway and seeing some of those sites. Listening to the river at night with the windows open was soothing too. We just really enjoyed ourselves, and I have sent the link to your cabin to a handful of friends who enjoy these type of outdoor activities."

"My husband and I stayed for a 4 day weekend and really enjoyed ourselves.
We cooked every meal while there, and ate them all on the deck. The deck has a lovely view, outdoor speakers, and plenty of space. We had amazing weather so we were lucky enough to spend the majority of our time outside.
Basically everything we needed in the kitchen was provided. The kitchen is small and a bit cramped while cooking, but 1 person can fit in there to cook. That's all we needed! Plus there's a dishwasher so that is very helpful! We used the grill on the deck to make a couple meals and that is quite handy. There were very few nearby choices for dining out, but we expected that and brought groceries. The trip to Marion is long due to winding roads (not mileage), but its not too bad if needed or wanted (we went for delicious ice cream!).
Access to the Parkway is quite close. We hiked at Craggie Gardens, Crabtree Falls, and Linville Falls, all off the Parkway. All were not too far for day trips and all are awesome. We also went to Roaring Fork Falls near the cabin and its lovely and secluded.
The neighbors ARE close. I assume this is often not an issue, as you can't really SEE them...but during our stay the neighbors were partying constantly and incredibly loud. This was a bit annoying, but not the chalet's fault in any way. It was Memorial weekend so I assume they were there to party (and possibly a rental also).
The Master bed is divine - so comfortable. We did not use the other room, but we love that we could invite friends here to join us in the future if we want. It would be fine for 4 people.
We brought our 2 dogs and they had a great time. They got to roam around outside, sleep in the sun on the deck, and go hiking with us. They were happy pups! Mainly they just came inside to sleep after exhausting days.
We did use the provided firepit and that is another great feature - we enjoyed that quite a bit.
We had absolutely no AT&T service (nowhere nearby), but the available wifi helped us be able to watch Netflix a couple times. Since we came here to get away, being a bit disconnected was lovely.
I would say that if you're looking for a small, rustic place to relax and be near hiking, this is the place for you. We'll definitely be back."

"Spent 9 days at the Jacks creek cabin and have not had a more wonderful vacation. We rent from VRBO all the time and this was one of the best cabins we have ever rented. The place was spotless and had no bad odors. Everything we needed was there except food. I spent most evenings sitting on upper deck looking at the wonderful view. The hot tub was great and our Golden loved the place. The owner is easy to deal with and will answer all your needs. We hope to return again."
