I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
We had a great experience at Fawn Forest. It was everything we were looking for staying with friends and our two children. We had plenty of space, it was clean, well appointed with the items we needed and the view was beautiful."

"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!!"

"My husband and I wanted a quick get away in a place we had never been. I had heard of Lake Lure area through family in Ashville. I started looking and stumbled on this charming cabin!! Just perfect for what we wanted. The pictures sold me. Jenny Cox was most helpful in working us in to a small time slot as we could only stay a few days. When you walk in the door the whole front of house is Windows!!! What a view!!! All lake and mountains. This is a perfect place for 2 or a family. There is a loft with twin beds for the younger generation. The owners have provided many things for you do!! Plus there is a bonus as they own larger house next door. This would be perfect for a big family gathering. We toured the surrounding towns, ate at Larkin's and Lastrada. There is a huge Ingle's close by. All roads leading to cabin and around The area are steep at times and hairpin curves are abundant!! My only complaint was that it was still hot!! Got home and first cold front of season came through!! Oh well will go later next time. Thanks to Tom and Jenny Cox for such a charming cabin!!!"

"This property has it all -- well appointed, craftsman built, beautiful lake front setting, easy walk down to the water, loads of amenities; and last but not least, a cook's dream kitchen. Our family rented this property in 2011, and everyone voted to rent again this year. No other place we've rented in the Lake James area measures up to the Lakefront Retreat."
