                                          Stay was Fantastic

                                          Elizabeth K.

                                          The home is clean and so well kept. The owners were there when we arrived in 11" of snow. They went above and beyond to make sure we had everything needed. We could not go to the store so they gave us groceries for breakfast (snow), they towed us out of snow when we got stuck, and plowed the driveway so we could get in and out easily. They even went on the roof and fixed the satellite TV dish so we could have television.

                                          The beds were so comfortable as well providing clean linen and towels. Would recommend this home to anyone. It is very comfortable and convenient to Highway 87. Thank you for making our stay so wonderful even with 11 inches of snow.

                                          Quiet, comfortable getaway - but phone challenged

                                          Jon M.Lafayette, Louisiana

                                          We stayed four nights so we could join in with nearby family Christmas festivities. (Part of the time we had another two couples staying with us.) We were very happy with our lodging. Central heat worked very well (and I noticed a new A/C unit outside the back window). Two living rooms plus the dinette provided ample space for conversation. Each bedroom has a closet, large chest-of-drawers, and TV -- particularly convenient for longer stays. The hall bathroom (with tub/shower, commode, sink, and closet) is very spacious. The carport accommodates one passenger vehicle. King-size bed in the master BR (with cramped shower/sink/commode), two twin beds in the corner BR, and a queen-size bed in the 3rd BR.

                                          Telephone communications -- the only significant disappointment during our stay:

                                          There is cell phone service for neither AT&T nor PureTalkUSA; text service works for the former but not the latter. The on-site landline telephone works for incoming calls (we answered it, only to hear a couple of solicitations!) but it does not allow long-distance calls – such as was necessary to call our host. I did not try an outgoing 1-800 call. The net result was that we were uncomfortably phone-isolated from the outside world including our host.

                                          On the plus side, the Wi-Fi is excellent and allowed us to communicate easily with WhatsApp users.

                                          Here is what I would do for my next stay at this property:

                                          1. Confirm via the property owner that the on-site landline telephone works for 911 calls.

                                          2. Take a calling card for 1-800 access to the outside world via the on-site landline, and ask the property owner to confirm in advance that this will work.

                                          3. Find out in advance what the number is for incoming calls to the on-site landline telephone, and give that number in advance to my friends and family members who might need to reach me during my stay.

                                          4. Try to persuade the property owner to sign up for WhatsApp so that he can be easily reached by "phone" from the rental house. (He was accessible using email-via-WiFi, but that could entail several hours' delay in getting an answer.)

                                          5. Inform friends and family in advance how to reach me using WhatsApp.

                                          I do understand why the property owner would not want to be open to visitors running up long-distance phone charges. And it is not his fault that cell phone service is so spotty in that part of rural NC. But I think that better telephone communications than we experienced are typically a must for many travelers.

                                          Owner's Response:

                                          Hello Jon,

                                          Sounds like you weren't sure what the landline did and didn't do. Wish you had contacted either myself or Colton with your questions. Colton said that you had contacted him a couple of times and had complimented him on his quick reply. We both have AirB&B Apps on our cell phones that send texts whenever a renter needs something or has a question.Great suggestion for WhatsApp as well. I will look into that.

                                          To answer the questions that you have addressed:

                                          This phone functions as most rental landlines do.

                                          The phone number for the landline is clearly written on the info sheet along with the WiFi passcode info.

                                          The century link landline does accept long distance calls, does call out to all 919 area code numbers that includes Raleigh, Durham and Chapel hill as well as closer towns.

                                          Toll free number can be both incoming or outgoing.

                                          Yes, 911 calls can be made.

                                          We've never had complaints or questions about how to use the landline before so I'll make sure to leave instructions on what the phones will do in case others have similar questions. And yes, cell phone service in the country where we live is not the best. We have Verizon and have to walk to certain spots to get 2 or 3 bars.

                                          Thanks for your feedback and for staying at our place! Sara

                                          Lovely home in the country!

                                          Very roomy with everything you need! House is older but very well cared for. We stayed for 4 days - myself, my daughter and my 2 grand kids. The kids loved the yard and the room to run after riding for 8 hours! We all loved the Echo Dot hooked up to the Boss sound system! We were comfortable and felt safe! Would recamend this home to any one needing a place in this area!!!
