What a beautiful and inviting place to relax and renew! Thank you so very much for sharing your home with us. It couldn't have been any better.

The house and the view is amazing! Not to mention all of the outdoor living spaces and the "girls" out back and their eggs. We enjoyed interacting with them.

The fireflies at night were so fun (seems like there were thousands of them) - took us back to our childhood. Very surprisingly, they were pretty much the only flies we encountered. Made the location that much nicer.

We can't wait to plan our next vacation and our return to "Reach for the Stars"!!!

Fabulous retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Reach for the Stars! The house is gorgeous and extremely comfortable. We slept better there than at our own house! The kitchen had everything we needed and then some. The bedrooms and bathrooms were really nice and spacious. But our absolute favorite part was the beautiful covered deck with that million dollar view! We had a blast and can’t wait to go back!

Very clean and well maintained!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary at this property and it was way more than we expected. The pictures do not do it justice. It had everything we needed and more and we took our 3 year old daughter and she had plenty of toys to play with and movies to watch, but she mostly loved the sweet chickens. We fed them well and spoiled them 😁. Overall this is th most relaxing, beautiful place we have ever been. My husband is a land surveyor and we travel a lot, but this is by far our favorite so far. The only complaint I would have is I wish that the cable TV would have had more channels and the TV on the top deck had cable (we love sports). But that really was not a major concern because of the beautiful view surrounding the property! Thanks to the owners for sharing your beautiful home, we will DEFINITELY be back soon!

Beautiful Cabin and gorgeous view!

  • 5 of 5

Such a big, beautiful cabin made our trip to North Carolina absolutely unforgettable. Although it was a bit tricky to find, everything about the cabin made it worth it. Aside from being absolutely beautiful, there was plenty to do even when we were snowed in, with books, movies and games all provided. There was a helpful and amazingly organized folder that listed information about the cabin, menus and guides on places to eat and things to do in the area. The owners even provided a gift of champagne and cheese, along with a basket of eggs from the 3 chickens located in a small coop behind the house. We were allowed to take any new fresh eggs they laid, and we always had fun taking turns giving them fruit. Near the coop, there was also a fire pit that became a hotdog and smore’s station for our family. The cabin itself almost felt like home with how cozy it all was, and the owners were always eager to help and super sweet. Definitely giving them a big thank you for giving us wondrous memories that we’ll be talking about for years to come.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great trip with your family! Being family oriented ourselves, nothing brings us more pleasure than to hear that another precious family has made wonderful memories at our mountain retreat.
