"The Farmhouse is basically home away from home with better views and lots of land to roam and play. The property is huge!! The house is cozy, clean and very spacious. All the amenities from cookware, towels, cleaning supplies and more were readily available. Aside from food, everything we needed was there and easily located. And, downtown Banner Elk is only 5 minutes up the road so you can easily get what you need. It was spring during our stay so the 4 kids basically played outside for hours and hours exploring the nearby woods, climbing the hills and viewing the animals. Two cows and 1 donkey are kept in a nearby enclosed area but were very friendly and greeted us daily. Mr. H visits the property to feed the animals but you don't need to be there to meet him. He was very nice and told us a lot about the property and area. We also saw several deer and wild turkeys roaming the property. There is a fire pit so bring smores for roasting. Grandfather mountain is about a 10 minute drive but we visited Linville Falls and Linville Cavern--30 minute drive. Both great attractions. If you're looking for peace and quiet with great mountain views and lots of land this is the place for you."

"My family and I rented Azalea House while we visited our daughter at Montreat College. It was perfect! I am very picky about the cleanliness of the places we stay, as I am allergic to dust. The house is so cute and clean! It rained the whole weekend, so we didn't get to build a campfire, but we will definitely will be back! We loved the view of the surrounding mountains, and the creek that runs through. The proximity to Montreat and Black Mountain make it an ideal location.
Lorraine is the sweetest lady to talk to, and answered all my questions. Can't wait to visit again!"

"We spent the weekend in this gem of a place and enjoyed watching the visitors come up the ski lift just outside and walk back down the mountain to the festivities. It was a wonderful weekend and the hiking was better than expected."

"This is honestly the first time I have ever reviewed anything in my life. I felt compelled because so rarely in life do things work equal to or better than promised or expected. Our stay was originally for Friday the 12th but we made such good time driving that we found ourself a couple of hours away the day before and the owners let us stay the night before free of charge...we were shocked.. We have been so used to paying for half day rentals that this was beyond accommodating ...then we got to the cabin and it was in pristine condition ...no smells ...no dirt...no remnants of previous guest...couldn't see much outside because of the night but could hear the water rushing at the bottom of the property...woke up in the morning to just an incredible sight ...the trees the water the views the PRIVACY...secluded secluded secluded...yet 10 min drive away was Galax Va where we took the kids to see Jurrassic World 3D ...just opened day before....point is cabin gives feeling of middle of nowhere but your at movies and restaurants in minutes...we tubed the river we played horseshoes we barbecued and just relaxed in the hammocks .. Inside plenty to do ping pong video games board games and great wifi...then the topper...the wildlife...aside from the horses surrounding the property ...we had a few baby deer that would wobble right up to our porch every morning...rabbits...cows ...all around. It's just incredible...finally the cabin is modern but rustic and had way more room than we needed ..it was just perfect...this is our new home away from home....I've rented many Carolina cabins over the years and never had such perfect hosts or surroundings...thanks riverbend"
