"We stayed here recently and were extremely pleased with the accommodations and mountaintop location. Area is quiet, peaceful and scenic and offers a cool reprieve from the Summer humidity. We enjoyed several activities while there including ziplining and summer tubing! This was our second visit to this home and we will certainly go again."

"Alford's Getaway was everything we wanted for a great week at the lake. We had visited SML last spring and stayed at a fine house on the lake but everything took a long time to get to. Alford's is close to everything you need by either car or boat. Highly recommend renting a boat from one of the nearby marinas and using the available dock (this is not a must though as swimming, kayaking or lounging is great right off the dock). The house, as mentioned in other reviews is immaculate and nicely decorated inside and out. The owners are great to deal with and very accommodating. On the 2nd day I messaged Betty that the grill was not getting hot enough - looking for a trick or some adjustment to make. We were amazed when the Alfords showed up in a few hours with a BRAND NEW 5 burner grill!!!! I couldn't recommend Alford's Getaway any higher. We had 2 sets of teenagers in our group and everyone had a great time.....the only problem was having to leave at week's end."

"This place has everything! Nancy and Phil have put so much thought and effort into giving guests the perfect getaway by providing a comfortably furnished and well stocked cabin. It was also very clean and fresh no lingering pet odors anywhere! I loved having use of our own grill on the patio! Nancy was able to offer great advice on area attractions, restaurants, and stores. The tree house has a relaxing view, we loved the huge screened in porch. The fenced in yard area was perfect for Bruno! A big thank you for all the added extras; towels, soaps, dog shampoos, life jackets and so much more! We will come back for another visit and highly recommend this rental to anyone!"

Exceptional Property, Stunning Views, Great Service
"A group of friends and I stayed here during the summer and had such a great time. The location, conveniently located at Wintergreen in the upper reaches of the Blue Ridge Mountains, was about 15 degrees cooler than down in the valley.
The house, itself, is beautifully appointed, has great views, an awesome ping pong table, several grills, a hot tub, a firepit, and so much more. I cannot emphasize how big this house is and how many beds are included. It is the perfect spot for big groups or several families. In addition, there are some super hiking trails nearby and the owners do such a great job of informing guests (through email and pamphlets at house) of local activities. The owners were also very responsive throughout/after the booking process. I highly recommend this house!"
