"My husband and I have been staying in the two bedroom roundhouse for at least 13 years now. We always stay at Thanksgiving, and have only missed a couple of summers, and most recently we began going up for spring break for the last three years. The home is always clean and decorated beautifully to me. The fireplace is also wonderful during winter months. I love to pull the big chair up in front of it and snuggle in with a good book. I love sitting there and watching the snow fall during the winter months. Even at our age we have taken advantage of the hills around the homes and done a little sledding. The weather is great up on the mountain even in the summer time. When we were there recently, the last week in July, it was so comfortable with a cool breeze and low humidity. We hated going home to Florida's heat.
The thing we love most about the homes is the quietness that surrounds the area, and the beauty of nature all around us. As I read the other reviews it brought back memories of the Blue Ridge Mountains and driving through it, along with visiting the caverns and the many other places. Now we just enjoy going up to rest and relax, to renew our spirits for a time until we can come back again. Just recently Gail mentioned to us that she was afraid we would become board with coming up and staying in the roundhouse because we have done it for so long. I assured her that there was no place we would rather be then there except for a Disney a Cruise, but those do not happen no where near as often as our trips to the round house. We are looking forward even now to Thanksgiving so that we can go back, then we will be looking forward to spring break and another trip up, and don't forget a trip during the summer. There is always things to find to do. Even visiting with the locals is great. We especially love to visit Cristy's Crapft Shop there on Pensacola, she knows all about the area and has great tales to share about the area, not to mention her crafts that I love to buy. Cristy has become a great friend over the years.
Anyone visiting in any of Gail's homes there on the mountain will love it. The homes are beautiful and Gail is wonderful and always willing to help in any way she can. we are so thankful she has the homes available, it is like a home away from home for us. Even children and teens we have seen in the homes while we are there seem to really enjoy it."

"We chose this cabin for its seclusion and it exceeded our expectations in that regard. We never left the property for 3 days and never saw anyone else except for the property manager who made sure we were comfortable. The thermostat is locked and the cabin was too cool for us so we called him. He came quickly and adjusted the temperature. He even called us the next morning to make sure the temp was OK.
As others have said the old highway is just across the river and on weekdays there were many large dump trucks traveling the road all day which we could hear from the cabin but only for a few seconds each time.
The cabin was comfortable for two but if anyone slept in the upstairs loft there is no privacy; those rooms are open to the kitchen/living room below. The bed on the first floor was comfortable. No comment on the pillows as we brought our own. The kitchen was well stocked with equipment and utensils. The futon in the photos has been replaced by a leather sofa with two built-in reclining seats which are great for napping. Both bathrooms are quite small but adequate. The shower is tiny. Wifi was useful and we could get a weak cell signal outdoors (Verizon).
Our favorite feature is the river next to the cabin. You can hear the sound of the rapids all day and night. The water is crystal clear and we spent hours exploring up and down the river. Every few yards there is another small waterfall. We enjoyed hiking upstream but be careful as some of the rocks are very slippery and we came away with some minor scrapes and bruises. The water is cool and refreshing."

"We all enjoyed your lake house, we were there for my nephew's wedding which was being held at a near by marina/restaurant on the lake. Sitting on the porch and looking down at the lake was very relaxing, we spent most of our time while at the house on the patio. We also enjoyed swimming and kayaking along the lake. We rented a pontoon boat for the day and explored the beautiful lake which is a must do since we are avid boaters ourselves. The house had everything we needed and the kitchen was well equipped with dishes to handle our group but it would have been nice to have a larger grill on the back deck, unfortunately there was not enough room on it to cook for our group. Although you probably can't do anything about it the 3rd bedroom is very small and had no room to move around once the bottom trundle bed was rolled out plus there was no closet to hang your clothes. It would be ok for kids staying in that room but not 2 adults. All in all it was a very pleasant stay."

"We thoroughly our time in NC High Country. The house was perfect size for our group and has all the amenities that you could need. I recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a place to stay in Seven Devils or the surrounding area. Thanks."
