"Although the home is older and a little musty, it was very spacious and well stocked. The heat worked great, the view was gorgeous, the kitchen was thoroughly used, as well as the fire place. Our family loved that a boat was available, although it was quite chilly in late October for a ride. The internet worked great, as well as the tv and cable. The beds were comfortable and the hot water was plentiful even with 5 people showering back to back. A few notes: No hair dryers, no hangers, and the ice maker seems to leak all over the floor. Other than that, we had a great time. This experience made us want to rent homes for future family getaways."

One of the most beautiful places I've ever visited
"The villa is awesome. We had 3 teenagers and they loved the upstairs/loft area with twin beds and queen and separate sitting area. The view is spectacular. It is very quiet too. The villa has everything you need. It is one of the best vacations ever. We enjoyed lots of hiking to beautiful waterfalls and kayaking the French Broad."

"Review #10770134 “Hawks Ridge Home - Perfect in every way!”
My wife, daughter, and I are from Roanoke, Virginia. My brother and his two adult children are from Alabama. We wanted to meet somewhere in the middle to celebrate the holidays and spend some quality family time together. Catatoga was just about exactly equidistant from our homes and appeared on the VRBO website to be the perfect location. Not only was it the perfect location, it was perfect in every conceivable way. For starters, Kristin with the rental group was a delight to work with. Her competency and pleasant manner was just the beginning of a wonderful experience. The home was immaculate and just as advertised. The clubhouse satisfied the competition gene in our family, as we played pool, foosball, ping pong, bocce ball, croquet, and horseshoes. The trails and Catatoga waterfalls hike was spectacular and easy. The lake was perfect and we spent some time (60 degrees and perfect blue sky in late December!) on the dock and gazebo. It cooled off a good bit at night which made a perfect setting for a roaring fire with the plentiful wood that was provided. An excursion to nearby waterfalls ended with a stop in Brevard, which proved to be a really cool small town just perfect for wandering on a Saturday. Even Daisy, our 4 year old Labradoodle had a blast. In summary, I highly recommend Catatoga and the amazing staff."

Clean, comfortable, well- equipped condo with a picturesque view,
"This condo is even better than the photos. It was immaculately clean, had plenty of kitchen "stuff," and the furniture was very comfortable. The linens on the bed were soft, there were plenty of bath and kitchen towels and cloths, and the two fireplaces, one of which was in the bedroom, would make it so cozy in cold weather. Since it was warm during the day, it was nice that the AC worked VERY well. Although there is only one bedroom, there is a large pullout couch in the living room, though we did not use that. The deck overlooking the waterfalls has a large table with 4 chairs, and there is also a two-seater glider. It was so easy to communicate with Jessica, the manager. She was extremely efficient and helpfull. The only recommendation I have is to explain to a renter exactly how the key box works. I highly recommend this condo!"
