Gorgeous home and views!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing vacation spot! We loved every minute of our stay! The house is so gorgeous as well as the area around! The beds feel heavenly so we slept in later but we founds lots of fun things to do everyday as well. Nearby is zip lining and a tour of the Biltmore is a MUST if you have not been. Maggie Valley is really close too and worth a visit! Ghost Town in the Sky is a thrill!

After all of our adventures the house was the perfect place for relaxing and spending quality time with each other! The playroom was a hit with the kids, resulting in extra relaxation for us parents!! :) The house and decking was very safe for the little ones so it was nice to not have to worry about that. It was the perfect spot for our big multi family getaway, We will definitely be returning!!

Thank you so much for everything, Lynda!

Mountain Home in North Carolina

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at Lynda's mountain retreat! With beautiful mountain top views and relaxed surroundings, we all wished we could have stayed longer. We are a family with grown children, grandchildren and fur babies and it fit our family's needs perfectly.

There was a minor issue that Lynda immediately resolved. We appreciated her responsiveness.

We look forward to returning soon!

Excellent home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 14 people who stayed at this property for the long weekend. The property was exactly as it is described. It is the highest house on that mountain top with excellent views. It is a quiet place and very serene. Lynda provided instructions - just follow them and you will be fine.

One advice - do have a 4x4 vehicle - otherwise it is tough to get to the top. Also, first time you go there, make sure you reach that place before it gets dark - will save you some anxiety - overall, we loved that place!! Thanks Lynda!

Vacation home is nicely secluded, allows dogs and large.

  • 2 of 5

The home is large enough for a big gathering but some of the details were overlooked. For example, there was no salt and pepper in the house, no baggies or plastic wrap, handles that fell off Windows and bathroom nozzles, many missing light bulbs, not enough lamps in the house to cozy it up, yard not mowed and shabby furniture and pillows.

We have rented many mountain houses and usually find things a little nicer.

Owner's Response: We apologize that you are not happy with the rental. I have spoken to you and your guest Alicia several times over the last few weeks and none of this was mentioned. We are even returning her computer and more she left at the home for no extra charge. My caretaker is even driving it an hour at no charge to give it to you guys. The lawn is cut down every 2 weeks along with the road. We do not cut down the mountain sides as they have had special grass blown for eroding. As for plastic wrap and baggies, There is plenty of tupperware supplied. A whole cabinet of different sizes and a dishwasher to wash them. Plastic wrap and more are never supplied in rentals! If we supply all the necessary items required for your needs during your stay then we could not have it at such an affordable rate. $300 for 15 people. That was $20 a person a night that you paid. As for the handles on windows and bathrooms this is a first and will be addressed immediately. The renters before and after you have not mentioned any problems so we are not aware but will fix them. The hand made log beds, lamps, barn wood kitchen table for 10 people and more are very expensive sorry you think its shabby.. The antique pole bed and dresser are from early 1900's and has been in my family for years! This is our mountain home and we pride ourselves in keeping it looking like that. The beds are raved about as they all have memory foam tops, patchwork and faux suede bedspreads, and pillows are replaced yearly with plenty available. I know you were unhappy at the start since I would not discount the $81 vrbo fee for your 2 night rental. But as I explained it is not my fee and it wouldn't be worth us renting the home to so many people for a short period for the price you wanted to pay.I explained if you rented for more than 2 nights I could work out a discount but not for 2 nights with so many people. I even suggested you search for something else and apologized. You still rented it through vrbo even after that.
