Guestbook comments from the owner

From the guest book: Love this place! We don't want to leave!

Everything was what I was hoping it would be--from the turn onto the little gravel lane to the trees & the decor--we had everything we needed. Every detail thought of! Loved enjoying the back porch.

Thank you

Perfect retreat in the woods...we WILL be back!

  • 5 of 5

The modern cabin in the woods is a beautiful retreat which feels far away but is very accessible to the Chapel Hill/Carrboro area. The home is beautifully decorated and spacious. The fenced in yard was perfect for letting the dog out. Our family was very comfortable in this lovely home and we will be sure to revisit on our next trip to the area.

Owner's Response: We look forward to your return visit. You seem to like the same things we like about the property. Next time you may want to try the Modern Rancher in the Woods (VRBO # 646882) directly across the lane. Similar capacity and vibe...but different.

Charming place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed the house. It was clean, modern, decorated very nicely, and everything worked - ( TV, internet, coffee pot, laundry, etc..) It was convenient for us to visit our relatives in Carrboro. Had a little trouble with the bed in the study, but didn't affect anyone's sleep. I would recommend a stay here.

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to be close to Chapel Hill/Carrboro but also somewhere that felt private and quiet. We got both with this house. Perfect weekend getaway for our family of four!

Family Home Away From Home for Graduation

  • 5 of 5

Ten of us traveled from Texas to Chapel Hill for our daughter's graduation from UNC. We rented this house and the Modern Rancher across the street. Both properties were beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, exceptionally well equipped and so very comfortable!! The location is stellar - close enough to the heart of Chapel Hill but so quiet and peaceful. The owner, Jim, is responsive and amenable. If only all VRBOs were like this one!
