Awesome, will be back!

  • 5 of 5

First the house. It was beautiful and well kept with a porch that went completely around the whole house. The view was magnificent (would love to see a few more trees trimmed to catch the sunset) looking into the valley below. Had a blast playing pool and we even pulled out he monopoly game one evening(had not played in years). There were 10 of us and we had plenty of room. As for things to do, well, next time we need to plan for a longer stay. The gem mining was 10 minutes away and we had a lot of fun, even tried a bit of panning for gold (not something you would want to do for a living). The South Toe river is not too far away and was great for swimming and tubing. But best of all is the quiet. Just go and relax and listen to nature. That was the best part of the trip, sitting on the deck and drinking coffee.

Now, important info. For those of you who decide to take a trip to paradise, actually read and pay attention to the directions that are sent to you just prior to your trip. I had the combinations and was ready to go. Got to where my GPS sent me and there was no house! After searching the area I pulled out the email I had received (and thankfully printed) and presto, there were actually directions that took me right to the house. GPS takes you below the house and you cant see if from where it takes you. Also, there is no cell reception. So if you depend on google maps like I do, make sure you start your trip while in range of Wi-Fi. Hope to return again next year and do even more of nothing but relaxing on that awesome back balcony.

Private, beautiful awesome get away home for 10 of us!

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing vacation. The home is private with access to 3 levels. 1st level is 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, living room, kitchen, dinning and wrap around porch. The lower lever is a game room with 1 bath and access to walk out to patio area, yard and fire pit. Pool table, tv and Wi-Fi available. The top floor is a table with balcony and master bedroom with balcony. They had everything we needed in kitchen to cook with all we had to do is bring the food. Firewood available for fire pit. Two kids had to sleep on the couches because there wasnt enough bed space. They didnt mind too much. No one wanted to leave! Everyone had such a great time. Roads to the house are bot bad. No steep inclines. We fished, went to mines, caverns, kayaking and water falls. 20-40 minute drive to most attractions but worth it. Loved the home feel instead of resort without the privacy. We would definitely go again.

Comfortable and convenient

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this house very much. The owner was responsive to our questions and concerned that we enjoy our stay.

The house is big enough to accomodate two families comfortably, even if their children have slightly different schedules. It is also readily child-proofed for younger children (not a lot of nick-nacks, etc.).

The location really is great if you have a car: 1 hour to Tweetsie Railway, 20 minute to Linville Falls, right around the corner from the Emerald Mines, etc.

I would happily stay here again.

Beautiful & secluded cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible experience at this cabin. The house is brand new, super clean & very upscale. Great layout with 2 bedrooms on the main floor & master upstairs. The basement was incredible too, we didn't realize there was so much space- there was a pool table, kitchenette, fridge, full bath & fireplace in there! You could also walk out from there to the awesome fire pit area. We were honesty blown away by this property. The area is close to some great hikes, waterfalls & a mine village but that is about it. If you are looking for a time to get away from the hustle this is it. Its over an hour from Asheville & Mt Mitchell but there is plenty of hiking around & the Blue Ridge Parkway is just a couple minutes away. We loved it, would highly recommend & would love to go back.

Beautiful House on a mountain

  • 4 of 5

Lovely house with beautiful furnishings. We loved the wrap-around deck. Our only complaint was with the matresses. We did not find them comfortable for more than one person to sleep on.
