Great cabin for large family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wendy was very helpful and responsive to any communication. The house was beautiful, very clean and well maintained. The house had everything we needed for 14 people. The bedrooms and downstairs living room space were very spacious, giving us plenty of room for our large group.

Beautiful Mountain Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Pictures don't do this place justice! Massive cabin in a secluded neighborhood with gorgeous views, open living space, ample sleeping accommodations, and any amenities you may need. The actual property location is not reflected accurately through VRBO, which shows the house in Rutherfordton proper (the actual cabin is about 10 miles outside of town.)

This place has everything you need for a quiet, mountainous retreat well off the grid. If you plan on cooking for a large crowd, you may want to consider bringing specific cookware, as the knives and some of the pots/pans were not ideal for large meal prep. Everything else more than made up for that slight inconvenience, however. Our group plans to return here next year, if available!

Lastly, the property owner was both very responsive and made sure all of our needs were met. Overall 10/10 experience.

Wonderful home, lovely host

  • 5 of 5

Staying in Wendy’s home was honestly one of the best HomeAway experiences I’ve ever had. First, I really appreciate how effective Wendy was with communicating with me. She was prompt with all her responses, from before I booked the cabin to even after we’d arrived. She was even able to honor some of my last minute request, which I am so thankful for. Next, the house was spacious enough for me and all my guest and amazingly clean. She had the home stocked with games, full kitchen supplies, Landry detergent, cleaning supplies and even the bowl of candy was a nice touch! Everything I needed for my birthday weekend of relaxation and fun was already provided. I honestly could not have asked for a better host or location. Wendy, thank you for going above and beyond. You truly made my birthday one to remember. I would recommend this home to any and everyone. I even took a mini photo shoot for my birthday and the background was beautiful. Thank you again, Wendy!
