"We have stayed in many cabins over the years in Asheville and Black Mountain and we always pay extra for a spectacular view. The view from this cabin is the most amazing view we have ever seen from any cabin we have rented. The view from this cabin is front, side and back, unbelievable!!! On a clear day, you can see for 70 miles. It is also the most serene place we have ever stayed in. The last two days of our vacation, it was 100% rain, yucky and no view. However, we did not care because we enjoyed the view for a few days and the rain made it so cozy. The cabin is so inviting and it is so peaceful, that we stayed in, enjoyed watching the rain, built a fire in the fire place, and enjoyed the quiet relaxation. It is nice just to sit up in the loft and drink a cup of coffee on a rainy day, where there is a cozy bear themed sofa and a rocking chair. A big window in the loft allows you to watch the rain or see the view from wherever you are sitting. There are books in the loft, including children's books. In the dining room downstairs there is a cabinet full of games and decks of cards, so you will never be bored. Our family enjoyed the game room in the basement where we spent a lot of time playing ping pong and air hockey. It is the most inviting, warm cabin we have ever vacationed in. We were there with our son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter and we all had such a wonderful time. We could have stayed there forever. We are so very grateful to Candace and Jack for allowing us to stay in their home. We will definitely be requesting to stay in this cabin again in the future. The drive up to the cabin was quite an experience. We drove up in the fog, so was a little challenging. We had a 4-wheel drive, however, we would have done fine in our car. We drove down in the fog, which was also challenging, but again, quite an experience. We would drive it every day to visit this cabin. MAKE THE DRIVE UP, IT IS SO WORTH IT. BESIDES, WHAT GOOD IS STAYING IN THE MOUNTAINS, IF YOU DON'T DRIVE UP FOR THE SPECTACTULAR VIEWS. Make sure while you are there, to walk out on the deck on a clear night where you will see the most beautiful lights down in the valley, both in the front of the cabin and to the side. They twinkle like the stars. The owners are so nice and so easy to work with. The cabin is fully stocked with everything you need to cook a great meal and have a good time. Thank you so much , Jerry and Sharon Baker, Newport News, Virginia."
