We found owner Rod to be extremely helpful and dependable. The cabin was exactly as advertised, clean and well-appointed with just the right amount of mountain flair. If you’re into peace and quite, it’s the perfect location. The only sound we heard was the babbling creek below. However the journey up the mountain after dark with a serous fog setting in was was a pure adrenaline maker. We loved it.

Stay was o.k.... No view---kind of disappointing... Internet was horrible. Arrived with trash in trash can.... Coffee pot doesn't get hot.... Queen bed down stairs makes noise when you get in... No chairs to sit in around the fire pit. Drive way is horrible to turn around in.

This was our first experience with VRBO. The bar was set very high! Looking forward to the next time

Beautiful and very spacious house. Spring water was delicious as expected. House is naturally well lit during the day. Furniture was high quality, especially the beds. The drive into Boone was a lovely ride and made it feel like we were far enough away from town that we were away from the city without being too far removed from civilization. There were only two minor drawbacks that may or may not be important to most people. The driveway was a bit on the steep side and could be challenging for some drivers. I enjoyed the experience in my Subaru, but a 2 wheel drive pick up truck it could be an interesting experience. The other point is that the Internet was quite slow. We had to reset the Wi-Fi router multiple times during our stay. We have had this problem in many other places as well including hotels, etc. if you're looking to unplug obviously there are no issues with this. The problem was also intermittent. We were able to stream video occasionally and there were times when he took over an hour to post pictures on Facebook. Despite these drawbacks, we really did have a great time. The only reason I held my rating to a four star rating was because this is my first experience, and I want to leave room for something that could possibly be over-the-top. For now, this experience exceeded anything we could have imagined. We look forward to coming back.
