"My parents, brother and sister-in-law, 3-year-old nephew and I stayed at Dawson's Creek for 4 nights. It is a great place for families. The view off the back deck is stunning - sunsets over the mountains! The size of the cabin is perfect - small enough where it is cozy, but large enough for everyone to have plenty of room. Very clean, kitchen had everything we needed, lots of outdoor lounging space, felt very secluded. We liked that you had to enter a code to open the gate to get into the area. The fire pit was great - we had so much fun making s'mores. We also enjoyed the fireplace a good bit on chilly fall nights. The living room furniture is some of the most comfortable I have sat upon and everyone agreed the beds were very comfortable as well. Thank you to the owners for sharing this little piece of heaven!"

"We had a great time at this house. The house is very comfortable and in fine shape. The pictures of the house/lake/property are all accurate. The only reason i knocked a star off was because the pictures don't show the lower bedroom which is essentially a sort of musty basement. Not a huge deal, but the pictures on this site seem to not show it anywhere which is slightly shady.
We had one very minor issue (no wifi password) and the owner was very speedy to correct it, which is always appreciated.
Having a canoe to use was an awesome perk. We explored all over the lake in it. The dock is great for hanging out on and the deck is fantastic! It's huge and the view is incredible, i can't stress that part enough. Also, a flying squirrel was living in the birdhouse west side of the deck, which is always fun to see.
If you choose to leave the comfort of the property and lake, things to do in the area are plentiful. Quick and easy drives can take you to excellent creeks to play in, waterfalls to view, and beautiful old growth forests to hike in.
We stayed here for 5 nights in the summer and I think we only saw 15 boats (maybe) and half of those were canoes/kayaks. It's a truly tranquil setting.
At the time of writing this (2014) the county that the house is in is the only dry county in all of NC. If you like alcohol, bring it in. If you come from the west, it's worth the drive to the east to get your hands on some of the amazing NC craft beer.
The only other small thing was that we didn't know what to do with the trash. I think the info folder for the house could use a slight update to correct this, but that's an easy fix.
We would (and probably will) rent this house again in the future.
Oh, and the furniture is really pretty."

"Grandma's cabin totally met our expectations of a winter getaway: a warm, cozy, beautifully decorated cabin nestled in the mountains surrounded by the peacefulness of nature. We loved the fact it was so private and quiet. There is a fire pit which we enjoyed sitting around an open fire roasting marsh-mellows and relaxing. Chimney Rock is around the corner so we spent the day hiking and climbing the rock and afterwards enjoying lunch at the village below. Asheville is only 25 miles and we took a couple of trips there. Also, we enjoyed hiking and exploring the 5 acres and relaxing in the hot tub. We all loved the comfort and solitude it offered. It was one of the best stays in the mountains and we look forward to returning."
