"Our family stayed in this beautifully decorated, well equipped home duing Thanksgiving week. The views from this home on top of Big Bear Pen Mountain are spectacular. There is so much room in the dining room, we were all able to eat together comfortably. The Murray's were so helpful and pleasant to work with in making this a very memorable holiday family vacation. The location is very conveniently located, close to town and easy driving up to the top of the mountain. Driving up and down the mountain was even easy with the 1" snowfall we woke up to on Thanksgiving morning! The Grands loved it! Hiking or long easy walks were right out the door. The wood burning fire place warmed the living room every night. It was so roomy and cozy too! Thank you Ben and Melissa for sharing your piece of heaven. We loved it."

"My wife and I typically take a few days after Christmas to get away for a couple of nights alone. But now we have a sophomore in college, a Sr in High School, and an 8th grader so we felt like time alone is becoming easier to get while time together as a family is harder to find. So off we went with the whole crew! And what a PERFECT weekend it was due to this home!!! Time for monopoly, movies, fires, chess, meals together, and even a nap! Close enough to Highlands and Cashiers to make a day trip for shopping and mountain scenery. Everything you need is already in the home. Really..."

"Our family of 4 spent a very pleasant long weekend at the Chestnut Log Cottage and would definitely stay there again. The cottage has a few quirks, such as low water pressure in the bathroom sink (the shower is fine, however!), but it's cute, comfy and a great value versus staying in a hotel. Melanie the owner is very responsive if you have any issues and Hot Springs itself is a wonderful place to spend a few relaxing days."

"Away from the crowds yet close to Cataloochee ski slopes, hiking, sight seeing in Ashville and restaurants in Waynesville. After each adventure we loved coming 'home' to the warmth, comfort and space of Valhalla. The hot tub on the balcony overlooking the snow topped trees was a wonderful treat after skiing, and the best place to celebrate the New Year. Thank you to the owners for sharing their wonderful home."
