Why Sherrie Bare, Owner chose Fleetwood
We love the sounds and views of the rushing creek from the cabin and deck. The small community is a great place for long walks along the roadways. Very convenient to Boone and West Jefferson, yet privately nestled in the wooded setting away from it all! Convenient to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the New River as well as attractions such as Tweetsie Railroad, Grandfather Mtn, Tanger Outlets.

The perfect family nest in the Carolina Mountains
This is a very cozy cabin, perfect for a small family looking for peace, privacy and security, while enjoying the wonders of nature at Fleetwood, NC, mountains. It was very clean, well equipped and maintain specially the kitchen (only thing missing? a dish washer). Totally Away from the noise and stress of civilization, while located about 15 minutes away by car from a large Walmart, Lowe’s, gas stations and the towns of Jefferson and West Jefferson (if you are a cheese lover don’t miss the downtown cheese factory). You may also enjoy nearby; movies, restaurants, fast food, well known stores at nice and large malls. Resuming, the best of both world, secluded nature at its best and everything else just minutes away.
We appreciate your stay and review at Chasing Rainbows cabin. With the tucked away in the mountain feel but close enough to shopping, dining, and sight seeing for the adventurous types, this cabin is a must see. So glad you were able to appreciate the rest and relaxation and the provision of the cabin kitchen for your stay! We hope you will come back and visit again.

Cozy cabin with everything you need for a mountain getaway.
Very peaceful surrounding. Well appointment cabin. Wood burning fireplace and hot tub made for a very relaxing stay.
Nice and secluded for a perfect getaway trip.
It was a last minute birthday trip, and I couldn't have been happier on spending it here. The cabin was very nice and homely. Sherrie was also awesome, helping me find the cabin and just overall being very welcoming. With the creek running and the woods surrounding you this is the perfect secluded place to get away and enjoy a vacation. I will definitely be back!

Weekend to Relax
Pictures did not do this little gem justice! We had a wonderful relaxing weekend at Chasing Rainbows. The cabin was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was equipped with nice cookware. It had everything we needed to cook. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was very spacious. We enjoyed the sounds of the creek just outside the cabin while we sat on the front porch and by the fire pit. The hot tub was a bonus. We can't wait to go back again!
We appreciate your review on Chasing Rainbows! Your description of this creek front, relaxing cabin with a hot tub gives guests a great feel for what they can expect when they visit Chasing Rainbows. It has so much to offer inside and out, for a couple or small family. We can't wait to have you visit again!

Amazing Time at Chasing Rainbows!
We absolutely loved our stay in this beautiful cozy cabin. The place was very clean, it had everything we needed and more. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped, and the hut tub was perfect! The location was great, surrounded by nature and right in front a creek with the relaxing sound of the water running. But also close enough to West Jefferson and other small towns where we could find grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations, etc. We will definitely be coming back again! Thank you so much for everything!
We are so glad you had an amazing time at Chasing Rainbows. This cabin is clean and well appointed for all who stay.

We look forward to you coming back to visit.

Chasing Rainbows – ok, just ok
Chasing Rainbows was very cute and cozy with a wonderful fireplace. The mountain stream was delightful. However, it may be better for a cool weather or winter stay and look out for the hidden fees.
We should have gotten a clue when we noticed one of the reviewers indicated there were numerous hidden costs. We initially dismissed the idea but quickly recognized its truth. The website purported a nightly fee but this quickly rose by 22%/night once management fees and taxes were included and rose by 53%/night with pet fees. While this was disappointing, we decided to proceed.
The cabin, again, was very cute and cozy, and did sit across a gravel road from a wonderful mountain stream. However, the mountain stream was inaccessible to people or pets from in front of the cabin. There were no boundaries identified on either side so we accessed the stream on both sides. Apparently we trespassed on one side (toward the right) which was the preferred side and also rental property. We found this out, after the fact, with a call from the management company. Also on this call we were asked if we had removed a plastic Adirondak chair from that same next door rental property. Seriously?!? The website clearly shows that Chasing Rainbows has two, red plastic Adirondak chairs. We hardly needed to use or remove one from another property.
Other annoyances were the small window AC unit which took 24 hours to cool the very small cabin in the July heat, the kitchen light above the sink did not work and the hot tub cover was difficult to remove (not to mention the hot tub was right below the main electrical entry point to the house).
Again, may be better for a cool weather or winter stay.
Thank you for staying in Chasing Rainbows. I am glad you enjoyed the cabin and wished you would have called to clarify the creek access area. The property at the dead end of the road is a private log cabin with its own private creekfront yard, not a public access. Chasing Rainbows has a small creek front area to the left of the cabin if looking toward the creek with a bench right beside the creek (see pic). When reserving through VRBO please review the optional charges and choose accordingly as to the ones you want and do not want to add. Anytime you have questions please use the provided after hours phone number or call our office so we can assist you.
