Just what I was looking for

  • 5 of 5

I tend to do a lot of research on places to stay before I travel. I am glad that I decided to stay here. The property the house sits on is stunning. The rental itself has everything you need. It is within a reasonable driving distance to almost everything. The place is dog friendly and my pup fell in love with Kayle. I will warn you that the water pressure in the shower was weak but that isn't a negative for me.

The owner, Kayle, is absolutely awesome. She was more than accommodating and was readily available if I needed anything. She provided some good information on local attractions and dining. If you stay I highly recommend breakfast at The Pantry.

Quiet Mountain Vacation

  • 4 of 5

I like to try and find unique rentals in the area in which I am traveling, this property did not disappoint. The studio was very spacious with interesting décor throughout. Kayle was very quick to respond to my questions while booking and graciously greeted us when we arrived and checked up on us to make sure we didn't need anything. I did not cook but the kitchen seemed to be stocked very well with dishes, pans and accessories. There was a patio where we sat each morning and enjoyed our coffee while looking at the beautiful scenery. Located on the property just a short walk up the creek bed was a small waterfall. We liked being at a more secluded location but ten miles in either direction are many local attractions, restaurants and shopping to keep you busy. I would highly recommend this property for a get away to the mountains.

This is a very interesting place to stay. Lots of history, and beautiful walk to the falls.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. It is much more private than many VRBO places in the Green Mountain Falls area.

Kayle bent over backwards to make our stay even more enjoyable. A very nice place for a retreat, relaxation and the beauty of area nature.
