Recent Blue Ridge Highlands reviews

  • Family Get to Gather

    "We had a great time in the Fancy Gap area, there were 7 adults and 1, 4 year old. The family enjoyed going down to the lake and exploring the area, with the child. We met some of the families who owned other cabins in the area. The cabin really suited my family and we would like to rent the cabin for 2015 if it is still available for rent next year."

  • Rustic and Charming Cabin in Historic Downtown Abingdon

    "After two fun-filled days of exploring the downtown area, browsing the antique shops, and watching a Barter Show with friends, we enjoyed a take-out meal from one of the local gourmet restaurants and made a stop at Anthony's Desserts for the fabulous cheesecake. The cabin was a unique experience in the perfect location. The quaintness and rustic feel was truly a "1780 lodging experience with a lot of modern conveniences". The Creeper Trail is only two blocks away and the popular Wolf Hills Microbrewery is just across the street, so we must revisit again in the future and we will definitely stay in the cabin. It is highly recommended for family and a girls getaway."

  • Cabin in the woods

    "A perfect cabin for 2 in the woods. Off the grid. Cell phones limited, no TV, internet! Well thought out floor plan with all the amenities. Robes next to hot tube was perfect touch. We will visit again soon!"

  • Perfect weekend family get-away

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay at the cottage and will definitely try to return some day and rent the same cottage hopefully for a bit longer next time. It was a perfect, peaceful, weekend getaway for our family of 4, with 2 adult children who still like hanging out with their parents on occasion, but prefer their own bedrooms. We ate in for breakfast (and enjoyed the delicious scones, coffee and tea provided by the owner) both days, did the Virginia Creeper Trail one day, and played Canasta at the rustic kitchen table into the night. The TV went unused. The house has a very warm, cozy, homespun feel, very clean and well furnished (and well managed), with creative and tasteful renovations and decorating. I got lots of great ideas for my own renovation projects. I also commented several times to my family that if we had a cottage in the mountains, I'd want something just like this. Tucked in the back of a quiet neighborhood, private, quiet, peaceful, and with lots of wildlife around. So glad we chose this over a hotel or rustic cabin. Just what the doctor ordered for a weekend family getaway. So glad we found this rental (and hope these reviews don't make it so popular that we can't book it next time!)."
