Recent Blue Ridge Mountains reviews

  • 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."

  • Octoberfest was AWESOME from this place!

    "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."

  • Very Nice Setting!

    "I really loved the combination of beautiful views and usable yard and land. From the deck, Mount Mitchell is right there, along with Mt. Hallback, Mt. Craig, Big Tom, Balsam Cone, and Cattail Peak, looking across the valley and several mountain ridges, setting up an awesome sunset view. The yard in front of the house is a great setting for Frisbee, and I also loved the horse shoe pits. But the top of the hill where the big fire pit is located gives the best views; I counted 7 ridges looking west. There is also a cool path that leads into the national forest from here. The area up top is large enough to play baseball, and we created our own Frisbee golf course that took us all over the property. The house itself is very nice too, but the outdoor setting here is the best part and where I spent most of my time. I always look for a rental in the mountains that has a good view, but often the view is all you get with the dwelling positioned on a cliff of some sort without usable land. Eagle Mountain has several wonderful open grassy areas that are practical and fun to use. This place is now on my favorite list and I will recommend to all my friends."
