"This was our first time using VRBO. We usually stay in a hotel or B&B on our vacations. But, after our stay at Moore's pond I am now a huge fan of VRBO. What a different experience! The guest house at Moore's Pond was more like being at home. My husband loved it because of the privacy vs a B&B and the unique setting of staying on a working farm with goats and chickens.
The Kitchen had everything we needed- we loved the toaster- much better than ours at home- it actually toasts evenly. It was nice having the convenience of the Keurig since my husband does not drink coffee and I only wanted 1 cup-- But they also do have a large coffee pot for bigger coffee drinkers. The fresh eggs waiting for us were delicious!. We arrived on a Sunday evening and were sad to learn the Amish store would not open Until Tuesday. Once it was open though- we were there almost every day. So fun to just walk down in less than 5 minutes and buy bread and milk and bacon and butter etc. oh- and the sticky buns are very good!
We hiked the trails on the property and walked the pastures to meet the goats. Met Sarah and Chuck and visited with them - they are so nice and there dog Bela is friendly and loving. We could see the chickens every morning from our back window.
The first night we arrived it was a little tricky finding our way- the roads are curvier than we are used to :) but by the 2nd night we were much more at ease and knew where the sharp turns/ curves would be. One really nice feature is the lights they have strung along there lane to the house. It made it very easy to spot from a distance in the dark.
My favorite thing was looking out the patio door window every morning and seeing the gorgeous mountains- sometimes dappled in sunlight and other times blanketed with fog.
We hope to return in the future and thank Sarah and Chuck for sharing there property with us. So much better than the last time we visited Asheville and stayed in a hotel."

"Four couples rented this cabin for a long weekend . We had a wonderful time being together under one roof -- laughing talking, cooking and enjoying each other's company because we only see each other once or twice a year-- it would not have been the same if we had been in a hotel. The cabin is very well equipped, clean and comfortable. The open concept living and dining area was perfect in size and arrangement. The hot tub was great and was used 2/3 nights that we were there. the beds were comfortable and the bedrooms and bathrooms were ample and nicely decorated. The cabin is beginning to show a little age especially in the deck area- needs new chair cushions and some work on the staining and painting. We never could figure out how to operate the tv in the master bedroom-- unsure if ROKU box was connected right or we just didn't know how to work it-- instructions would be nice. The outdoor lighting on the front parking area and porch needs to be brighter. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!!! It is within 1-2 miles of 2 major grocery stores and only a few minutes from Asheville and the Biltmore( which was the main reason for our trip ). The owner (Rebecca) was good to work with and responded to our questions promptly. Overall, hated to leave and come back to reality. We had a great time, we would DEFINITELY recommend this cabin to family and friends. THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES."

"My family of 3 and mother in law stayed here for our elopement/vacation weekend. The drive up was a little unsettling for us flat-landers but after a few goes back and forth it was no big deal. No 4WD needed though it might have made me feel a little better. The owners live upstairs but were so quiet I couldn't tell they were there. The rental is beautifully decorated and very well equipped! The beds were more firm than soft (not a problem at all) and included a plush down comforter. The owners leave a binder full of information in the rental which comes in handy for those of us who have never been to the area. The views will steal your breath away and make you never want to leave! I loved how close this property is to both Asheville and Lake Lure. All in all, we were extremely satisfied and plan to return. Thank ya'll again!"

"We had a very fun and relaxing few days at Winters Haven! The house is wonderful, lots of room for a large family. There were 10 of us but room for more. There is lots to do nearby and we took advantage of as much as possible. Saved some for another time! We did have a problem with water pressure and hot and cold fluctuation. We realized too late that we had overlooked the "clean out the filter" instructions in the General House Information located in the manual. So be aware of this!"
