"My family and I planned a Christmas get together and ski vacation for the holidays. We split the group and stayed with four of us here and 8 staying near Grandfather mountain. this house was only 10 min away from the Grandfarther mountain house and Sugar Mt. was only another 10-15 min away. We went skiing on 2 separate days and snow tubing the third day. All easy access and close to the house.
On one of the rainy days days, we went to Linville Caverns and really enjoyed the tour! Very cool caves that the younger kids loved and tour docents kept us informed about their formation and history during the civil war.
We stayed for a week and made our meals often in the fully stocked kitchen. Loved that it had everything we needed. We had plenty of room on the floor in front of the TV to watch Christmas movies with the wood stove to give us that cozy feeling. We didn't need it for heat since the whole house and both bathrooms had heaters that were more than adequate.
Bedrooms and closet space was big enough to hold all our luggage and winter gear. Master bedroom had a nice dual zone electric blanket to use at night. Plenty of towels & space in the bathrooms and being able to have a nice washer and dryer for laundry just simply completed our needs. Everything was there and ready for us.
Our Hosts, were gracious and easy to talk with to coordinate our trip. They arranged contact with the keeper of the house to give us the keys and show us where everything is in the home. They filled us in on where to get groceries and find local restaurants. The Italian Restaurant (that's it's name) was just 2 min away and had great Pizza!
So, if you're looking for a vacation home that has it all and close to local attractions, I'd definitely recommend the stay here. Enjoy!"

"The house is very well decorated, very comfortable and clean. The bed in the master bedroom was exceptionally comfortable and the bathroom has soft fluffy towels. One of my dreams came true when i was sitting in the living room reclining chair, listening to great music on my iPod and watched the snow fall lightly onto the balcony. Truely a moving and memorable experience. We went in the last week of March and we had a lot of fog and cold weather so we were very limitied in our outdoor activities. According to all of the local publications it seems like the best time to visit this area is April - October so you can enjoy the natural beauty of the area. I would highly recommend this home and the owners were very easy to work with."

"The house was a perfect spot for our company trip. We usually stay in hotels, but your home was more cost effective with the size of our group (4) and what a nice surprise it was! It was a pleasure coming home each evening to a relaxing comfortable home instead of a simple hotel room. We will definitely return--thank you for opening your home to us! Thanks for the fresh flowers in the house as well--nice touch!"

"Thanks so much for a lovely weekend in the snow! We all love Boone and our family has a special connection to this town. The cabin was great - well stocked, lots of games, and nicely appointed. We enjoyed a family fun day at Appalachain Ski Mountain. Hope to return in the future!"
