Amazing Home, Amenities, and Views!

  • 5 of 5

The owners of the house have put in a lot of love and work to make this home spectacular. They make you feel welcome the minute you walk in. They provide great info on the home, and give extensive detail to whats available and how to run things! It is very well equiped for fun! The outside deck area is amazing for watching TV and cooking out. There is a hot tub too! Its a great gathering place to enjoy the mountain air! There are cool green laser lights you need to try! Fun! There is a great fire pit area for evening camp fires, and a covered downstairs-back yard sitting area where you can play darts and corn hole. The entire yard is fenced for pets. You can also visit 3 cool hens (Willa, Lucy, and Effie!) that lay some great breakfast eggs provided by the owners! The upstairs deck provides a spectacular sunrise view! This is a great family or couple rental. The upstairs provides a master Bed and bath, kitchen, dining area and fabulous family room. Of note, there is a spiral staircase from the kitchen that goes to the bottom floor where there are 2 nice bedrooms, a full bath, the washroom and a small sitting area. Each bedroom has its own TV. The spiral staircase could be tricky for some to access, however the French doors in the sitting room lead you to the ground level, where there is a covered viewing area and your covered parking. To get to the main level, you would however have to do the stairs to the main deck, if the spiral staircase was an issue. We did hikes to Grayson Highlands state park (1 hr away), Elk Knob state park (45 min) and Doughton Rec Area (40min). There are numerous hiking areas all over. The 3 mentioned are spectacular. Bring a picnic! Close by is downtown Boone/Blowing Rock/AP State (30 - 45 min), and West Jefferson (15 min) which are fun to visit. Great shops, breweries, cheese store, and restaurants. If in West Jefferson be sure to stop at the downtown butcher store for fresh grain fed meats! Delicious! The fresh bakery is also fabulous. This is a great home to go out and explore, then come back to relax. Marsha is very responsive if you need anything. This family has invested a lot of love in this home and it shows. You will not be disappointed. I will book again!! Best vacation in a long time! Thank you for sharing your home with us!!

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.

Cute Cabin with a Beautiful View

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our long weekend stay at Reach for the Stars. We appreciated all the thoughtful touches by the owners. The deck is great with an awesome view, in particular sunrise! Very nice kitchen and master suite. The fenced in yard was great for kids and pets. The description did not mention there is a chicken coop with 3 chickens in the backyard, which our kids loved!, but think it should probably be mentioned as an FYI for guests with pets! Same goes for the spiral staircase to the second floor. It is extremely steep and would not be safe for some guests. We have 2 kids under 5 and we struggled getting them up and down. Besides those two minor comments, we had a great time and would look to rent again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and for your suggestions. I did add the chickens to the description. Honestly, we have dogs and have had tons of company/guests with dogs and it has never been an a matter of fact the “girls” have always been a huge plus for folks. So sorry if they were a problem for your dogs. I also mentioned the spiral stairs in the listing. Thanks again for the suggestions!!!
