Recent Blue Ridge Mountains reviews

  • Mountain Cottage

    "We have stayed at rental properties all over the country Mexico & the Caribean & this house was by far the most friendly, & comfortable place we've ever stayed at. The house was very well decorated, comfortable, & well stocked with all of the necessities for a get away. The house was also very convenient to the towns of Boone & Blowing Rock NC, as well as the Blue Ridge Parkway, Grandfather Mtn. & other area attractions. We definitely recommend this cottage for both short & long stays. PS the sunset from the back deck was fabulous."

  • Thoroughly enjoyable

    "This is a great location to spend a vacation and agree with everything the prior reviews stated except the coffee pot (may be a new one) quickly brewed coffee. We under-utilized a lot of the space, but what we did use was wonderful! The den with fireplace is so-o-o cozy for downtime. All of us watched Dirty Dancing and two other movies in the den and utilized the TV in the main area for news. Our two teens LOVED the basement! They enjoyed the seclusion, ability to spread out and laundry room doubling as a private dressing area. With their ipads and iphones in use, they wanted me to remove the TV from the end table. The walking exercise circuit on the property was a fun group activity every morning, and the massage therapists at the Wellness Center are excellent. Paddle boarding was easy to do and we found a sandy, secluded beach area to take a break before we returned. The life size checkerboard was a favorite, too. We enjoyed climbing the stairs at Chimney Rock and walking to the beautiful falls at the end of Hickory Nut trail. The pizza and wings at the on-site Legends restaurant are very good. We found lots of little coffee shops in Chimney Rock as well as a hidden gem—Tia B’s Mexican restaurant (closed Wednesdays). The airport and Asheville are only an hour away. Part of our family drove from MI and the Garmin GPS took us the wrong way in the NC mountains a few times which was very frustrating and once we got our bearings, we ended up taking 74/240 to Asheville downtown (5 times) and 74/64/26 to and from the airport (2 times). They are maybe not the fastest routes, but definitely the easiest—with beautiful scenery. Fairlake provided a great base for a memorable vacation."

  • Wonderful fall vacation.

    "Our early fall week at Lake James was perfect. It was unusually warm so we were able to tour the Lake by boat. The leaves were just beginning to change color, so our drive to Linville falls and back along the parkway was beautiful. We chose the house for the views and the beauty of the house itself. The property exceeded our expectations in both regards. The description and photos are helpful, but the experience itself was even better. The home was extremely clean and well-maintained, the owner helpful, and it was altogether a wonderful rental. The steps to the lake that have been mentioned in previous reviews are important to consider if elderly individuals or small children are in your party. But we found them to be good exercise. We highly recommend this property and hope to return."

  • Spacious

    "Larger home than I had expected. It had everything we needed & some. The only confusing thing was on departure, instructions were to load dishwasher & run last load & turn off main water valve. So we just hand washed the dishes instead. BEAUTIFUL view of the slopes at night."
