"My husband and I stayed at The Cabin for 8 nights. It wasn't long enough! We rent places that allow us to bring our dogs, and with Peg's permission, we brought our pups along with us. We've rented several places in the past, but this is the cleanest and best maintained place we have stayed in. You know what really tells you a place is clean? When you go to open the windows and the sills are free of bugs and grime. The rest of the cabin was just as clean.
We really enjoyed exploring the hiking trails around the cabin. If you get the chance, be sure to hike up to the Christmas tree farm. The view is spectacular. Speaking of views, the view from the cabin would be hard to beat. Every day, I would sit on the deck and soak up the mountains in the distance while the dogs played in the grass in the yard.
Everything is so close and convenient to The Cabin. Ingles is just down the road, Grandfather Mountain is just a short drive away, as are Linville Caverns. We also made the quick trip to Blowing Rock (take the Parkway, the views are amazing) twice. We love Kilwins' ice cream, so we had to go back the second time to have more.
The Cabin is well appointed and had all of the cooking utensils we needed, plus paper towels, dish and hand soap and toilet paper. The towels are nice, not threadbare like they are in many places and there are two very nice rugs on the bathroom floor as opposed to the cheap ones we've had in other homes we've rented. The grill was used almost every night and we had a couple of fires in the fire pit, too.
We really enjoyed our stay and if we are ever in the area again, we hope we can stay here again! Peg was easy to deal with and quick to respond. Stay here and you won't regret it!"

"our family has not been together for many years since we live on three continents! The opportunity to all be together in Montreat, a place of treasured memories, was excellent. There were places for all to be together as well as the secret hiding room and passages for childrens delight, and comfortable lounging and talking areas. we thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

"We booked this house for a family vacation and had a good time. I have rented many houses through VRBO and always appreciate people giving pros and cons of the houses, so I hope this helps someone else.
-Owners are very nice and QUICK to respond to messages
-the house has lovely views and a great swing and hammock on the back deck.
-the house has basic cleaning things in case you forget something at the store which is so awesome (some rental places we have been to have the house stripped bare)
-the kitchen is well-stocked with pots, pans and utensils
-the house is secluded and far from most things so we would recommend it for people who want to hole up for a while and not leave the house
-the house has fun toys for kids
-the house is secluded and it is far from most of the major hiking places. We should have clarified this when booking but just be aware that this house is about 30 minutes North of downtown Banner Elk and then you drive 30 additional minutes from there to get to hiking places.
-there is no dishwasher
-the lower level of the house where the queen bedroom is is in the basement so it has a strong musty/mildewy smell and you hear the air handler come on and off.
-the air hockey table needs new disks
We would recommend this house but just want people to understand what they are getting when they rent it."

"We really enjoyed our stay at beautiful Chalet Vallya. We loved the peaceful lakefront location and the beach at the resort. The house was clean & comfortable and we appreciated all the extra amenities! The owner was so nice to deal with...we'd stay here again in a heartbeat! We'd also highly recommend doing a boat tour of Lake Lure if you've never done it...the views are absolutely stunning!"
