Scerene Blue Ridge Mountain Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row that we stayed at this cabin over labor day weekend! There was plenty of room in the cabin for our group to spread out and enjoy our time together. There are plenty of excellent outdoor activities in the area. This year we rode the Virginia Creeper Trail our first full day there. The weather was cold and rainy the second day, so we stayed in, played games, and enjoyed the cabin. The third day we went to church in Pembroke and then hiked Cascade Falls. I highly recommend this cabin for anyone seeking a mountain get away. Thank you again Sherman for accommodating our stay.

Great get away spot for a large group or family outing!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to get away from it all, and you have a large group, this is the place! With deer, turkeys, horses, cows, etc roaming the property, this is a great place to relax and enjoy nature. The cabin is clean and well equipped. We are definitely planning a return trip.

We loved the property and the home was absolutely beautiful. The property management was very accommodating to our needs. Everything you need from blankets, to cooking utensils, to towels. Everything we needed was right there. There was plenty of sleeping space and lots of property for outdoor activity. We will definitively reserve again. Thanks Sherman and Charles for everything!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review, Nola. It is especially nice since you and your family visited us immediately after the stay of 30 people. A real tribute to Jill and her cleaning team.

Outstanding Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, and a group of friends stayed here for a weekend. Great location and a beautiful setting. House was spacious, clean and well maintained. Both Sherman and Charles (property manager) were more than helpful and reachable whenever needed.

The Cabin in the Blue Ridge provided us a great escape

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cabin in the Blue Ridge. We particularly enjoyed the fact that the Cabin was by itself on a large property and that our families could play, ride bikes, and explore the area without worry of anyone else being around. The amenities were great and allowed us to cook, play games, and socialize together as friends. There are many great things to do in the area. We rode the Virginia Creeper Trail, hiked to Cascade Falls, and spent some time at Hungry Mother State Park during our visit. There were plenty of beds for our group and the layout was clearly articulated and matched the actual layout. The listing description was accurate and the property was clean and well maintained. I have and will continue to recommend the Cabin in the Blue Ridge friends, relatives, and acquaintances who are visiting the area and would like a comfortable escape. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we look forward to visiting the Cabin again sometime!

We booked a Fri. to Sun. It wasn't long enough, none of us wanted to leave and everyone said they'd love to come back. We had 13 people in our group (11 adults, 2 kids). This was a get together for my mom and her siblings who haven't seen each other in many years and we were all visiting my grandmother who is buried in Riner. Some came from Florida, Louisiana, Pennsylvania and Maryland. We walked in and just kept saying Wow! I never stayed anywhere more beautiful...the cabin and the view. Both had a lot of space. We fed the horses apples, the kids went wandering with their cousins (some family came in and stayed in the next town and visited during the day, they really loved the place too)

*The fireplaces had plenty of wood, the hubby loved keeping them going

*The hammock on the front porch was a big hit

*I loved having 2 ovens! Aunt Tink was cooking biscuits in one, while I was cooking sausage in another

*The fridge, we had a little trouble. Since I was hostess, I bought all the food for all 3 days for 13 people (I knew the stores were far away, I didn't want to go out for anything, I wanted to enjoy the cabin). 4 gallons of milk...2 dozen eggs...2 gallons of OJ...etc....etc.) It was fine until other family arrived and brought food too! (Bad planning on my part) We made do and kept stuff in our coolers. I read there's 2 fridges now, that's awesome!

*The kitchen was great. It had all appliances and utensils, even crock pots, coffee pots and colanders!

*The washer and dryer were nice to have if needed

*We cooked on the outside grill

*We made a fire in the outside fire pit, it had logs around it to sit on

*Bathrooms, there were plenty. One on each level plus one in the master bedroom. I had forgotten t.p., but lucky me, it was already stocked up!

*We did have difficulty with locking the locks, but that could of been us

*One aunt and uncle got the room off of the living room. A little shutter for the window would be nice for added privacy, so one of the kids can't come by and pull the curtain back while they're dressing

*The trash, I didn't care for dropping a few bags off at a convenient store on our way out, but it wasn't a big deal. We actually kept our burnables separate and just burned them in the outside fire pit

In closing, this has been the best place I've stayed at thus far. As with anything, you're not going to please everyone. It goes a long way to have an owner who wants feedback to make improvements. Keep up the good work!
