"My husband, son, two dogs and I stayed with Sally and Joe for two weeks. The cabin was perfect for our needs-- Well equipped, cozy, and most importantly, no musty cabin smell! We also spent a lot of time on their property, sampling some yummy organic fruits and vegetables, hiking the loop, swimming/exploring the creek. One evening, we hiked through the forest to the glamping site to enjoy a meteor shower with Joe and Sally and the occupants of the other cabin (wow! what an experience!). What else could we want? Another afternoon Joe took us to a neighbor's house (on the Polaris, which my 11 year old son loved!) to see a library that they built on their property (breathtaking). The cabin is about a 15-20 min drive to West Jefferson, which we really enjoyed exploring. There's a great coffee shop, fun shops, galleries (we did a painting class at Frenchie's). We also went to the New River State Park and did a kayaking tour from the General Store nearby. Grayson Highlands was wonderful too (went twice)--on both visits we were fortunate to see a mother pony and her baby. Great hiking, incredible scenery, wild blueberries--definitely worth a visit. Also, per Joe's suggestion, we did the Virginia Creeper trail which is a downhill, 17 mile bike trail that runs on an old railroad line. Fun!
My family and I have stayed in many cabins all over NC. This was by far our favorite! Great hosts, great location, great accommodations--its got it all! We'll be back! Thank you for everything!!"

"I have rented from these guys multiple times and it has been great. Clean, stocked with everything you would ever need and the houses and locations are awesome. To walk into the living room area and look out at the view from this house is breathtaking. And great surroundings and proximity to Banner Elk, Boone and Blowing Rock. Was a great long weekend and cannot wait to get back up."

"Owners were very helpful and available. The cabin was well equipped and so charming with privacy and wonderful hiking trails. The hot tub was broken and that was disappointing but the owners acknowledged this and very kind by offering a discount.
We will definitely return to Winter Star!"
