Comfortable cabin in a convenient location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this cabin for a long weekend when we were back in town for our Duke reunion and it worked out great. We were two families -- four adults and three kids -- and the sleeping arrangements worked well. The location was quiet and private but very accessible, 10-15 minutes to everything that we wanted to visit. The cabin is nicer than the photos convey, and there is a spacious outdoor deck, which we enjoyed using. Would have been nice to have a little more seating for dining, but there were folding stools that sufficed. All in all, the cabin worked perfectly for our reunion weekend and was an excellent value.

Nice location

  • 3 of 5

Had a nice visit to the area. There were some difficulties with the outlets in the bathrooms. Hairdryers would not work in them. Very relaxing area with woods. Enjoyed checking out the record players in the house.

Owner's Response: We're glad that you enjoyed the place. Super! Thank you for writing a review. FYI.....the outlets have a breaker in the middle that merely needs to be pushed for them to work.

we enjoyed our stay at the property- the house is comfortable and quiet.

however, when we returned on our last night at the property, there had been a break-in and our laptops were stolen.

Duke Bball campers

  • 4 of 5

I was the dad with 4 middle school Duke Basketball campers this week in 2016. The house was perfect for us. The kitchen table was workable, but small. The bedrooms were just right for what a bunch of guys needed. The master bedroom located on main floor in the center of it all served its purpose for me keeping an eye on things. The house was clean. Nice front porch. Wish the porch had more sitting/dining options for breakfast. The location was easy to get to and an easy drive to Duke University. Wish we could have had some time for strawberry picking up the road from the house. The stairs might be hard for anyone with disabilities.
