"This is a lovely home in a very secluded location. My husband and I spent 4 weeks there and were visited by family and friends. The location is convenient to Highlands and to many activities and beautiful scenery. The large deck on the back was my favorite spot. Loved the hummingbirds (we got a feeder for them) and the little bunny that visited the back yard in the early evening. Unfortunately, the trees have grown up since the pictures you see here were taken, and you really can't see the mountains unless you are standing. The unlimited long distance phone service is a huge plus as there is only enough of a Verizon signal to text. We did not find the home to be as well equipped as others indicated. While the kitchen has upscale appliances, the things in the cabinets and drawers were disappointing. There is no ice maker and only one functional ice tray. Trying to cook for 4 adults and 3 kids was a challenge at times. The master suite is very spacious and comfortable, however the linens and pillows could stand to be updated. Be sure to bring hangers, soap, and a bedside clock if you want to have these items available. The second bedroom and bath upstairs was fine for kids, but not so much for another couple. The bathroom lacks a decent mirror and storage. The heat and AC are not vented to this room so the door needs to remain open for air circulation. There is only one TV, but there are additional connections in the "TV room" and the master bedroom. The owner did provide us with another cable box for an additional TV that we supplied. Because David is close by, he was able to respond quickly when we need help figuring out how everything worked. (BTW, gas is piped directly to the outdoor grill so no canister is needed!) This house is on the market; wish we could buy it!"

"This cabin is truly remarkable. The pictures sold us on this property, and it is still more picturesque in person. The grazing horses are a wonderful thing to see when sitting on the porch enjoying your morning coffee. The location is fantastic if you plan on hiking, mountain biking or taking in the outdoors. The only con, which did not affect our trip in the least is that if you are planning on spending time in Asheville taking in the night life and plentiful libations, this property is not the closest option. Either have a solid DD or be prepared for a pricey cab ride. This was a boys weekend, but I plan on taking my significant other back to this property in the future because it was a very romantic setting. The landlord was very hospitable and even worked with us to allow us to check in a little early. Solidly 5 stars."

"We enjoyed ourselves very much at this hidden, well-appointed house. We were even able to cancel our 4WD rental after learning that the steepest parts of the road had just been paved! Our rafting trip with Carolina Outfitters was fun and especially convenient to this location. This is definitely a 'getaway' place!"

"This cabin has everything you need and more. We stayed for 4 nights with our one and two year old girls, dog and my sister who came along to help watch the kids. There was plenty of room for us and the place was well stocked. The front porch was great to hang out on, the gated fence helped make sure the kids/dog didn't wander too far, and the big yard with play set was fun for the kids as well. There were turkeys and rabbits that we saw daily that the girls liked too. Super close to good restaurants and grocery stores, and only a 10 minute drive to downtown. Tom was very easy to work with and welcoming. We would definitely recommend."
