Quiet, comfortable, perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a location for a business retreat, and this cabin was perfect. It was quiet and comfortable. There was a gorgeous view, both from the upper level deck, and the lower level patio. The decor was perfect for a mountain getaway. Cozy fireplace. Although there wasn't time to use them on this trip, I could have accessed all the amenities of Riverbend (lake, picnic pavillion, and more). The owner is also incredibly helpful. Thank you!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We love sour time here. This is a comfy cabin nestled in the woods. We enjoyed the outside swing and the sounds of nature. I t was so clean and well maintained. This cabin has a nice down star with a bedroom, bathroom, tv, playroom and a pull out couch. This was great space for my grandchildren and son. If you want a special area for kids downstairs, this is the con to go too. Also, the beds were so comfortable. We slept great. You can enjoy just resting at the cabin or going sight seeing. There are many places or go if you want to explore the area. This was a wonderful vacation for all of us!!!!

Great, Good and Not So Good

  • 3 of 5

If you are looking for an isolated mountain experience in a hard-to-find spot this is the place for you. This cozy house is way up a gravel (sort of) road in the midst of the woods. The Owner keeps a very tidy house, clean and well organized. It was a little shy on supplies and linens for a stay longer than just a few days but the kitchen is well equipped, there is outside furniture including a grill and porch swing, even kayaks and equipment. Along with wifi there is a landline, which you may need as cell coverage can be spotty. The lower level has a fireplace (wood was provided) but suffered from a musty basement atmosphere. The washer and dryer were a real bonus (detergent was provided, enough for one load).

Another big plus: total quiet, no road noise, no close neighbors, just the wind and birds.

Biggest drawback: it's a long way down to restaurants, shops and nightlife. The roads are twisty-winding to the max, making for difficult night and wet weather driving. Additionally, the Owner's directions were not accurate and because of the location, GPS did not work; thank goodness for a couple of locals who helped us out as we were driving up.

Convenient and cozy

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in this cabin twice - once with friends and loved it so much that we came back and rented ourselves. We climbed at the nearby Rumbling Bald area and felt this place was convenient and cozy for all of our needs.
