Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent our vacation at this Breathe Easy cottage hiding in a large mountain natural forest.

It was so relaxing and wonderful and had some good quality family time. I had one of the best vacations of my life!!!

Everyone had a wonderful time at the cottage. We were all so sad to leave.

You have a wonderful place.

It was an experience that we will all treasure.

Great Stay - Comfortable Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very nice, Clean and comfortable. It was well equipped with everything a family would need. The rushing creek below can be heard from the cabin and is very therapeutic. We were concerned about the gravel driveway we would need to navigate to the cabin. But, found this to be easily tackled by driving slow and there was no problem at all. We truly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this cabin to family and friends.

Very Satisfied

  • 5 of 5

Our group was made up of hikers, bikers, walkers, and a couple who was happy to do nothing and relax and enjoy the view from the patio and the facilities met all our needs excellently. Drove to Damscus and did the bike trail. Thanks for the lovely bag, a souvenir to take home to Deutschland.

Picturesque Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about the rental. Beautiful cabin. Very attractive. It was exactly like the photos on the internet. Like not having to keep up with a key. We have stayed many rental places in the area and this is the best. We also met a neighbor who was very kind and offered to assist in hike to the falls. The falls was amazing.

We drove 6 hours and left the cabin after one hour on the property. I am a teacher with one vacation so walking away from prepaid 5 day rental was a hard decision. The driveway is 45 degrees up with loose gravel and took our CRV four attempts to reach the top. The pictures on the website do not show the slope. There are no screens on any windows so forget fresh air. The creek was not at the doorstep as advertised but down the treacherous driveway and across the road. Then I noticed active surveillance cameras everywhere recording our movements. As a last attempt to find something we enjoyed, we turned left out of the driveway to see the falls. A sign stating “If you can read this you are in my gun sights” was the last straw. When I contacted the owner, he stated he never advertised screens and said I was confused, malicious and accusatory. He would report me as a ‘bad renter’. I thought he would offer half of my money back.

I then realized several positive reviews were written in same writing style.

Hopefully I will at least get the cleaning fee back since we never touched anything. We then drove 6 hours home.

Owner's Response: The Cabin is located on 100+ acre mountainous property in the Blue Ridge Mountain range. Abrams Falls Creek flows across the property in front of the cabin. The owner or caretakers do not live on site, and this is a remotely managed property. The closest neighbor is 1/4 mile away. Therefore, for the protection and the security of the cabin, guests, and owners, the property is equipped with an outdoor CCTV security system. Automated security system can't be turned off for someone's lifestyle. Abrams Falls Cabin always maintains a high-quality family-friendly environment. Our guests can access the falls by hiking the short trail (on the left side of the creek). We have no control over display signs on other properties and their freedom of expression, and "gun signs" are not a rare sight on this part of the country. The only sign we have on our property is "Private Property, No Trespassing." All pictures of Abrams Falls Cabin on VRBO/HomeAway are as-is pictures of the property and the cabin. All our reviews are genuine experiences of our guests who stayed at the cabin. Almost every guest who stayed at the Abrams Falls Cabin had a pleasant time and enjoyed their vacation; some are repeat guests who visit us annually.

Peaceful and really nice. Great access to creeks. Great front porch. Only bad point: driveway

  • 4 of 5

We came to the area for a college graduation. I opted for a home instead of hotel rooms and I'm glad we did. We were able to spend time together...even when my small kiddos napped. The front porch and rocking chairs is the best part! And the creek at the bottom of the hill was a family favorite. The only frustrating part is the driveway. Several of us got stuck multiple times and the hairpin turn at the top is scary. If the driveway was better, I wouldn't hesitate to come back again. The space really is perfect and peaceful. Overall a great stay!

Beautiful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Such a great property and the surrounding area. We had such a great family trip. The cabin is in perfect condition. The location is not to far from town with easy access into Bristol. The weather was not great while we were there so we spent a significant amount of time in the cabin, and it was perfect. One recommendation is ensuring that you have a front wheel drive car or one that has four wheel drive:)
