  • To truly get away from it all!

    "Our previous rental plans changed last minute due to a mishap at the property and I scrambled to find a vacation rental last minute. Benjamin was the first person to answer and I’m really glad he did! It’s an amazing piece of land, the stream out front, the privacy, the woods… it was perfect for getting my family away from it all! I’d say all the previous reviews about the place are pretty accurate. The inside stairs are steep and narrow and could perhaps benefit from even a rope banister but were not a problem for any of us, (including the 9y/o dog we brought), even in the middle of the night. The outside stairs leading from the driveway are a very well built stone, but a little mossy and some might find those intimidating. Again we were fine with them. Benjamin gave precise instructions on how to use the heating unit, hot tub (if you like), with ample white bath linens and various “under-the-kitchen sink” items. (ice melt, cleaner, dish washing liquid etc). There is a semi-functioning house phone and he installed WiFi so you don’t have to be totally out of the loop if you don’t want to be. We encountered the same issue as listed in previous reviews about the lack of common kitchen items: scissors, mixing bowls, measuring cups and the like. I made the kids’ pancakes in a beer pitcher we found:) There were lights with a motion sensor mounted on the carport, but they never activated. You come here for privacy and the setting so bring your own supplies and you won’t have to run 26 min away to the Dollar General. We had hot showers, but the Jacuzzi tub made it to just below the first level of jets before the hot water went. I found that odd. I spoke to Benjamin with the initial inquiry and then by email afterwards. All conversations were pleasant. During the 3 night stay, it took him some time to return an email. I also left him a voicemail regarding the property asking him to return my call as soon as possible while I was within cell range. To my knowledge he never returned the call. “Stargazer” did exactly what I needed it to do, which was allow my loved ones to disconnect from the everyday hustle for a few days in order to nurture our connection to each other. The kids and the dog loved exploring the outdoors! We all had a blast playing on the mini game table provided, board games we brought, reading and talking. I’d recommend you hurry if you’re going to go, it looks like it’s for sale. Thank you very much for opening your home to us Benjamin!"

  • Wonderful Cabin!

    "My wife and I had a great experience staying at this cabin! We will very much be coming back for future trips. Wally was wonderful to work with! The cabin is very charming and has a good balance of feeling deep in the woods without being too far from everything else. The weather was pretty bad for most of our stay but the day we left everything cleared up and it became even more difficult to leave! There is plenty of hiking and parks nearby on the Blue Ridge Parkway and even the roads the cabin is on are very quiet and great for walks! I think we only saw about 3 cars during our entire stay despite us coming and going frequently! Highly recommend for anyone looking for peace and quiet! The gas fireplace was awesome and did a great job of keeping the cabin warm!"

  • Ladies Annual Reunion

    "I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful time we had at your home in Lake Lure. Your home is absolutely beautiful and so totally comfortable - there was not one thing that we needed that was not there. The location is perfect and the roof over the boathouse was our favorite place to have our cocktail hour and to watch the sun set, just totally awesome!! All of the ladies just kept repeating what a wonderful home and location - we can't thank you enough for letting us spend our reunion in such a perfect spot. If things go well, we hope to return to Ledford's Landing for another reunion - thank you for making our reunion one to remember."
