About Mike Wooster

I am a recovering Floridian, spending my childhood in South Florida and early adult years in Pensacola and Jacksonville.. Following 8 years as a Navy pilot, work related relocation has taken us to Pennsylvania, Ohio, (back to Florida), North Carolina, Mississippi and finally Oklahoma.

We lived in and loved this home for two years and have been blessed to be able to share with others.

Mike Wooster purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Mike Wooster chose Waynesville

We love the location of this home. Although atop a mountain, we have wonderful views and are only a short drive to town.

Cosy and Quiet Place! Beautiful View!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay. Confortable beds, nice fireplace, well furnished, there was everything we need. The dishwasher door needs to be fixed, and also the outdoor grill had no propane when we tried to use it.

We would stay again.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Nice home, well supplied, clean. We worked remotely while staying there and internet was great! We loved the fireplace, too. A Rustic Roost would be our first choice next trip.

Our time at the Roost

  • 4 of 5

It was very nice and comfortable, clean and well furnished. It’s the perfect size for four adults, or a small family to enjoy time together. The only thing that presented any problem was that the dishwasher door needs fixing. When you open it, it slams down on the floor! Also, there are are very few drinking glasses. We bought plastic cups to supplement the small supply. Otherwise, it was a wonderful place and we would definitely recommend it and stay there again ourselves!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the feedback. I will certainly inform our realtor of the difficulty with the dishwasher door and lack of drinking glasses and have the situation remedied immediately.

Rustic roost relaxing and refreshing

  • 4 of 5

Overall a great stay. If majestic mountain views are your goal then this may not be the property for you. That being said it is a great cabin on a nice property. The views are nice, but not looking off the edge. There is a nice little farm below the property and mountains across the valley. Very peaceful location and convenient to attractions with a short drive. The cabin itself is very nice and relaxing. We would stay here again without hesitation.

Enjoyed our stay overall.

  • 3 of 5

Nice, clean cabin. Futons were not comfortable at all, so keep that in mind. We tried to drop the trash off at the assigned area located off the property on Sunday when we left, but it was not open. Had to hijack a local dumpster to get rid of our trash. The main concern was the fireplace. It needs immediate attention. The burners need serviced. They filled the house with fumes and we turned it off and opened the windows until it was aired out. It's a cozy place, it just needs some TLC.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to give a thoughtful review. I was unaware of the condition of the futon mattresses and have already ordered replacements. Gas log service has also been scheduled.
