  • better than advertised

    "We selected MTM for a lengthy family reunion/vacation based upon the very complete descriptions and photos provided on VRBO. Even so, we were pleasantly surprised upon arrival! Actually before then, we had frequent, timely and helpful communications with owner Deborrah. The property was in very good shape, very clean, expansive lawns and landscaping well-maintained, and well-furnished and -equipped. When we did encounter very small and quite normal maintenance issues, the owners' representative was wonderfully responsive. Deborrah kept in touch throughout our sojourn and was genuinely interested to assure our good experience. We knew the area (and its many activities and restaurants) but there was lots of information in the house to guide a new visitor. We were anxious to escape the summer heat of the flatlands, and boy did MTM meet that need. We noted July daytime highs of 68-70 degrees at our 4200-feet altitude, while our hometown was experiencing 90's. The setting and convenience (so near Blue Ridge Parkway, Blowing Rock, Boone),the views, and the quality of the house are five-star; our only rationale to rate as four derives from the age of the home and a few not-yet-updated bathrooms, and some mattresses past their prime. Wish there was a 4.6. We would definitely return, gladly."

  • 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."

  • Lovely spot, lovely weekend

    "We have stayed at Lake Lure multiple times yearly for the past 4-5 years, and this weekend spent at Papa Bob's cabin was one of our favorite trips. Jenny was so easy to communicate with and even rescheduled our weekend after I had a work issue. Our family of four (son, 15 and daughter, 13) were all captured by the charm of this lovely Sunset Cove in Lake Lure as soon as we passed the entrance to the driveway. You felt like you were being "tucked into" a haven as serenity as the driveway winded down to the cutest little cabin. We checked in mid-day and I was awestruck by THE VIEW! THE VIEW! My favorite view at Lake Lure is the middle of the Lake looking back at "The Sleeping Lady of Lake Lure". It is the most beautiful view of the Lake and Papa Bob's cabin is perfectly situated to enjoy that view. The cabin is perfect for a small family of four. It is simple, rustic and cozy. Our kids are older, but they still loved the loft, and we were all quite comfortable. The kids went through a "shell shock" initially as there was limited WIFI signal inside the cabin. We had an unseasonably cold weekend, and they did not brave going outside on the cold deck long just for the sake of an internet signal. So, guess what? After they recovered from the shock of being "unplugged", we actually got to SPEND TIME TOGETHER! We went to the nearby Ingles' and stocked up on all our favorite foods. We watched movies, we played some of the games that were in the cabin, we talked and laughed and slowly but surely we all relaxed. It was so peaceful to sit and look at the VIEW! We went for a hike/walk on the beautiful 14 acre lot and surrounding area and then came back and had hot chocolate. We hung out of the beautiful bench on the expansive dock, and then we went back inside and had more hot chocolate. :) We went to Asheville for a birthday dinner one night and enjoyed the snow covered mountains and road sides along the way through Apple Valley. We were all ready to get back to the cabin afterwards to get back into "relaxation mode" with another movie night and more family time. I drank hot tea and even took a nap while Dad played more board games. Our family enjoyed a perfect weekend there in Papa Bob's cabin and we look forward to booking another visit to this perfect spot at Lake Lure. We'd love to go back in the summer and enjoy some fishing from the dock bench, go back to Chimney rock, canoe in the morning and swim off the floating dock. We highly recommend this rental."

  • Thanksgiving getaway

    "We had a great time in this Home. We were two couples, sisters with our husbands, who hadn't spent any time together in way to long. We had all the room we needed, two master suites, full kitchen, big screen tv to watch all the football games and a great sunroom to kick back and have morning coffee and read the paper. Close to town and yet very private. We love Black Mountain, close to Asheville for day trips, and then back to the house, where you can just relax. Owners were great to work with, answered all of our questions, and provided us with any and all necessary info to make our stay a good one. We will try to book this home again next visit."
