"My fiancé and I took a long weekend to the cabin for a post-deployment getaway. We were very pleased with the cabin, which honestly could have housed another couple and some kids very comfortably. We enjoyed the large jacuzzi. Lots of nice touches, like a basket of towels right at the back door, lovely gas fireplace, games, and a fully stocked kitchen. We ordered ahead groceries at Lowes foods. Saved a lot of time, but get your own produce. Fairly close to downtown Banner Elk, skiing, and Boone. Driveway was pretty easy to get up for our Jeep Grand Cherokee, even in fairly heavy snow. Stairway down to the cabin was a little treacherous at first, but once shoveled much better. Probably not very handicap accessible. We will definitely come back, and would bring our 14 month old, cabin is very kid-friendly, but I would bring a baby gate. Older kids would enjoy the large porch, stream, and exploring, especially in warmer months. Loft with extra bedroom, bathroom, futon, plenty of room for teenagers or another couple to have their own space. The fireplace will heat the upstairs QUICKLY! Best part is there is a working, old timey style phone in the kitchen, which the owners called to check on our stay. Too funny to watch someone talk on that thing. Overall great experience. Worth the money, and would definitely recommend to a friend."
