We recently bought this home from previous owners who also listed on VRBO. We've renamed it from "Black Dog Cabin" to "Oscar's Retreat". But, it's the same phenomenal home that earned a 5 star rating...from every single person . Here are just a few quotes from reviews by past renters:
"The home is lovely and spacious. Plenty of room to move around, gather, and large dining room to feed everyone. Fully stocked kitchen, lots of natural light, and room to mingle." - Pamela M.
'We loved our stay in this home. It is massive with plenty of room for 3 families. We really enjoyed dinners at the giant dining table and downstairs was perfect for the kids. An added bonus is there is a generator.' - Brian B.
"Couldn't be any happier with our stay. This home is beautifully decorated, clean and well maintained."
"This home was perfect for our family - we range in age from 9 months old to 70 and everyone was pleased with the accommodations. We cooked all meals, so the kitchen was spacious enough for lots of "helpers". Kids made s'mores in the fire pit and played lots of air hockey - we would certainly revisit this home!"-Terry B.
"This place is AMAZING! You won't want your vacation to end!" - Current Owner
This 4,400 square foot well-appointed, cozy log home is the perfect family or big group getaway with room for all. The moment you walk through the front door you know you are in the most relaxing, inviting cabin in the mountains.
Beautifully decorated in an elegantly rustic style, you'll find all the extras you need to enjoy your mountain getaway. The kitchen is fully stocked for the gourmet cook, the dining area seats 12, there are four televisions, DISH service, four DVD players, a game area, a Wii console with streaming Netflix, a DVD library and Wifi . And we provide a pack and play crib, booster seats, child safety gates and children's dishware plus plenty of toys and books which means less packing for you!
As you walk through the front door you are greeted with an open, spacious living area with two sitting areas and a cozy stacked stone fireplace from floor to ceiling. On the main floor is a spacious master bedroom with a vaulted log ceiling, private spa-like bath, and access to one of the large decks overlooking the large private yard. Also on the main floor is the great room with two separate sitting areas, the kitchen, a half bathroom and a spacious dining room with a table that seats 12 and an additional sitting area. The deck runs the length of the home on this level and can be accessed from the dining room, hall and the master bedroom. Upstairs overlooks the open main floor and there are two bedrooms, one with two twin beds and the other a queen bedroom, both of which share a full bathroom (hallway access).
On the lower basement level you will find a second family room with a game area and children's play area and two additional bedrooms: a second master bedroom with a king bed and private bathroom as well as a bedroom with two twin beds and access to a half bath. There is a second deck on this level with access to the backyard that can be reached from either of the bedrooms and family room.
The home has plenty of outdoor space to enjoy the perfect climate. Relax on one of two spacious decks equipped with comfortable furniture to enjoy the quiet, wooded view. Or descend the staircase into the backyard and lounge around our newly added firepit and your family can roast marshmallows, dine on s'more's or just enjoy the fire.
Also, feel free to enjoy the combination pool/air hockey/table tennis table on the lower level or play one of our many board games. Also available now is a Wii game console (we provide a limited number of games so bring your own for more fun) equipped with streaming Netflix so you and your family may enjoy movies on demand.
And all of this is conveniently located with easy access to Cashiers, Highlands, Brevard and an hour from Asheville. As a guest you may utilize all the amenities of the Fairfield Sapphire Valley resort including indoor and outdoor pools, a wonderful Ron Garl designed golf course, tennis, skiing, snow tubing and access to Fairfield Lake and canoeing.
We also have provided binoculars, flashlights and a nice collection of maps and trail guides to assist you in enjoying the area's many wateralls and outstanding hiking trails.
We know that you will enjoy our second home as much as we do! Call or email now to make your reservation.
