About Mish & Andy Clark

Nothing is more precious to us than making memories with our family. And we love enjoying the outdoors, either hiking or tubing, so Blue Ridge Mountains was the perfect place for us to purchase a vacation home.

Why Mish & Andy Clark chose Northwest High Country

We wanted a place perfect for two families to vacation together. We love the idea of families taking time to treasure each other and make memories in our Blue Ridge Mountain home.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 8 ( 5 adults /3 kids)

We love this cabin. It was perfect for our birthday getaway celebration. The drive from the main road into the cabin was supper lovely , we saw deer going up the hills , it was a great kick off to start our adventure.

The Cabin was VERY clean and well keep, it was completely decorate in a BEAR theme, really cute and unique, it matched the COZY feeling of the house. The pictures on the website matched the house 100% . The Cabin is gorgeous and really Cozy...

Since we went around the holidays , the cabin was decorated with Stockings over the fireplace & a Xmas Tree, which made it feel like home and the kids love it.

Kitchen is fully equip, the Bedrooms are fully equip with lots of cozy blankets . Bathrooms were spotless, and the Jacuzzi on the two master looked brand new. plenty of towels as well. Really no complain at all.

The game room in the lower deck was a huge hit with my family. The kids and adults got a kick out of that . Great memories were made playing and hanging in there.

The outdoor firepit was our biggest focal point as every night we would seat outside, do a bone-fire before heading to bed and plan our next day excursion .

The ONLY thing we couldn't enjoy was the HOT TUB outside .

Because it was being fixed. As per the maintenance crew that came out to the house , the tub was having issues with the motor. But it wasn't a big deal for us as the two masters bedrooms had Jacuzzi in them. ( we notified the owner and they were very attentive with this issue)

Overall, we really enjoyed this cabin all around, it was a really great experience for the whole family .

I would truly recommend this house for Wknd Getaways, Family Reunion, Romantic Getaways.

We are definitely coming back on a different season . Thanks Mr & Mrs Clark for allowing us to enjoy your cabin .

Sincerely ,

Ketty Manzano

Great family vacation!

  • 4 of 5

I have stayed in quiet a few cabins up in the Blue Ridge area, some were great and some not. This one was definitly one of the better ones. The location is perfect, easy to get to and close to everything. It is a gated community and the neighbors are super nice, so you feel very safe and comfortable. The cabin is beautiful and spacious, we had plenty of room for us and 6 kids. All the beds were pretty comfortable and plenty of bathrooms so everyone had access when they needed it. We had so much fun playing the old arcade games ( I haven't played Ms Pac-Man in probably 30 years! ) We also had a blast playing air hockey and Foosball. We made smores out by the fire pit a couple nights and made a fire in the fireplace every night, very cozy. I loved the upstairs loft area and private balcony, that's where I would escape to read and do my daily devotions. We cooked every night at the cabin and had a huge Christmas dinner. They do provide most everything you could imagine you would need, but they definitly need to update the pots, pans and the bakeware. It's so old and worn out that everything would stick and when we made Christmas cookies on the cookies Sheets, not only did they stick but the bottoms would burn. We never used the grill, it looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a really long time and the cover needs to be replaced. We also did not use the hot tub, it had sand in the bottom of it. We ventured out almost every day. We visited Mercier Orchards, which I highly recommend doing the wine & hard cider tasting. We also went ziplining, so exhilarating! I recommend going to Zipline Canopy Tours of Blue Ridge, they were very nice and the scenery is beautiful! David and Kyle are the guides, they are patient and encouraging with you. (they also crack jokes trying to get you to relax:) Of course we went to downtown Blue Ridge to do some shopping. Overall we had a wonderful time and are planning to go back. The only reason I did not give 5 stars, is because the cabin could really use a DEEP cleaning, it was cleaner than some I have stayed in but there was dirt and dust under the beds, on the baseboards and in the corners, which caused me to sneeze a lot. The shower in the master bath really needs a good bleaching. I would have done it myself while I was there, but they don't leave you any cleaning stuff. I am a bit of a clean freak, so for somebody else it may not have bothered them. Still, we really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

Our family love it !

  • 5 of 5

Our trip was amazing, Best cabin experience we had ever had.

The pictures on the website are 100% correct, the house looks exactly the same we love it, it was really clean and well maintained.

We love the house in every aspect, it had plenty of entertainment for the kids and for adults as well.

We enjoy the outdoors fire pit , the game room was a big hit , the jacuzzi in the bathroom are in great condition, the kitchen is well equipped, and the house decor is stunning. Very very nice cabin.

We will definitely recommend this cabin to our family and friends.

Family Holiday a Hit!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the Thanksgiving Holiday with our family at Nature's nest Cabin. It was perfect weather and a beautiful place to relax and enjoy some down time. We enjoyed the fall leaves and the quietness of the neighborhood. The cabin had a wonderful loft for reading, game room for competing and a hot tub for relaxing. The only disappointment, was the "no burn" in place at the time. We will definitely return to this area and cabin in the future to create more family memories.

Dishonest owners

  • 1 of 5

I'll start with the positives. The cabin is very nice and all the positive reviews are correct. It's clean, comfortable and convenient to many local attractions. I can't speak for the other bedrooms as we shared the bunks with our daughter, but no one complained. The bunk mattresses were not very comfortable but I wasn't expecting much and I'm guessing they are mainly used by children. The kitchen was well equipped and there was a decent supply of toilet paper, dish soap, etc. I'd be leaving a 5 star review if the owner hadn't decided to rip us off. The only thing it doesn't have going for it is a nice view.

I'm sure the owner will comment here and defend herself, so I'm not going to go into great detail. I only want to say to be very wary when deciding to rent from them. She decided to keep part of our deposit for a list of things that we didn't even do. She says we broke things that were already broken and that the hot tub that we weren't ever able to use stopped working due to our negligence. It all comes down to a he said/she said situation and the owner has the upper hand since she already has my money. And I have no way of proving that I didn't do what she is claiming.

We selected this cabin and gave up better views for the hot tub and fire pit and weren't able to use either during our trip (the area was under a burn ban which is not the owners fault). Go figure! We left the cabin clean and exactly as we found it (my husband even swept and wiped all the counters) and are paying for repairs on something we weren't responsible for doing. I've rented many times through this site and have always had a great experience so this is really upsetting. If you decide to rent this cabin I'm sure you'll enjoy your stay and be very comfortable, but if you are deciding between this cabin and another play it safe and go with the other one. The cabin is nice but not worth the grief. I'm not sure why the owners targeted us but we feel completely taken.

Owner's Response: You will notice out of 70 reviews, as of the date of this posting, we have a 4.8 rating. This guest is an anomaly. Let me share the facts: 1. A lot of food was found floating in the hot tub (looked to be bread, potentially pizza crust) and we believe it was sucked into the intake valve, caused a disruption and tripped the breaker on the hot tub. We had to have the hot tub serviced. 2. A lamp was found broken and unable to be repaired. These two reasons are why a portion of this guests deposit was kept. In addition, these issues occurred, of which we did not charge the guest. 3. Multiple pieces of candy were found stuck in two blankets. Plus, candy wrappers were found all throughout the room. This was the room the guests said they slept in with their child. 4. Hockey table handles were broke and table was excessively scratched. We were extremely disappointed with these guests. Out of more than 200 families who have made amazing memories at our cabin, less than a handful have caused any damage. On several occasions, guests have called us and told us items are broken and we don't charge them in respect for their honesty. We only keep a portion of deposits in very, extreme situation.

Loved all the details!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our family of 5 (kids ages 3, 6 & 8). All the details of the cabin (TONS of small cooking appliances & utensils, lots of cozy blankets, perfect decorations - rustic, but modern, GREAT game room for all ages & lots of dishes) really made the experience more like coming home than just staying there. It was the perfect location, about 10-15 min from the scenic train, Mercier Orchards, a Dollar General, Ingles & lots of great local restaurants & shops next to the Blue Ridge Train. Could have easily fit another family (we didn't even use the other bedroom), but loved all the extra space! The kids were happy they could all fit together in one room. This was our first trip to the mountains, but we have done many beach houses & you can really tell when someone takes time to think about everything their guests might need/want. Plenty of towels, very comfy master bed....really a great experience! Hope to bring the family back to try a different season!
