Guestbook comments from the owner

Sitting here with our coffee looking over the beautiful mountains on the last day of our two week vacation stay! Where do we begin to express our appreciation for you letting us use your home. Everything was perfect. This was a great base to all kinds of activities and activities and trips. It was a delight to watch the hummingbirds. My husband refilled the feeder 4 times! Can't say enough about the temperature and sunsets. Thanks for your generosity and we hope to visit again.

Great Holiday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our visit with family members encompassed the days just after Christmas, December 26-30. Great winter sunsets. We hiked nearby Scaly Mountain on the Bartram Trail (4 miles, round-trip) with outstanding views at 4800 feet. Couple trips into Highlands. Lots of firewood provided. We had cozy fires each day. Beautiful house!

Lovely Thanksgiving

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Sunset Ridge. The beds were comfy and the views were spectacular. The last bit of gravel road was an experience but we managed.

Relaxing , beautiful view, all the comforts of home and more.....

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful get away for the entire family. Very clean, board games for the kids. They have tv that even my 6 & 8 year olds didn't turn on because they were outside playing and giggles echoing throughout the house. All the bedroom were clean and the master bedroom has the most beautiful view. Enjoyed morning coffe right outside on the porch in the cool mountain air and the beautiful fall colors.

Cannot wait to return for another relaxing mini vacation with the family....

Highly recommend 🌟󗰼󗼟🌟󗰼󗼟🌟󗰼󗼟🌟󗰼󗼟

Great Family Mountain Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We just enjoyed a weekend in this beautiful home with family to celebrate my dad's birthday. We had plenty of space for our three couples and four teenagers. The beds were comfortable, and linens and towels were provided. The very spacious kitchen had everything we needed. We grilled both nights and enjoyed the amazing views and sunsets. It was a little too chilly to sit out on the spacious decks or screened porch, but we still able to enjoy the view through the large windows while sitting by the fire! We hiked, visited waterfalls (don't miss Dry Falls!), went into Highlands, and checked out antique shops and flea markets in the area. The owners were extremely accommodating and were great about answering questions and providing information! They even had organized books in the house with info about things to do and restaurants in the area.
