Excellent accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in other "cabins" the last 3 visits to the mountains. This mountain cabin has been the best experience by far. The property overall is large & private and very pet friendly, with a very big fenced in area. Just beyond the fence, runs the river. A little to cold this time of year to enjoy fully, but another season would be very enjoyable. The fireplace was real and there was plenty of cord wood available. We made great fires in the fireplace every night and it not only created a very warm atmosphere, but also added greatly to the ambience of the cabin. We grilled out several nights on the provided grill, but good thing that I brought my own matches though, only 3 left in the box in the cabin, which is the only negative thing that we encountered. Therefore, a very trivial matter. Otherwise, we loved our experience and would definitely come back when we ever visit this area in the future. I'm thinking that I would like to do some trout fishing in the streams in the vicinity.

This house was the PERFECT place to hold our family Christmas gathering. We had family coming in from all directions and this wonderful house provided us with just the right meeting place. There was not a thing that we needed that the house did not already have. We also SO enjoyed the outside fire pit. Thank you Phyllis for your kind hospitality! Treasured memories were made!

Great Family Time!

  • 5 of 5

This is our Family’s third year at this wonderful home. We had a fantastic time. Great home! Always enjoy the fireplace and just relaxing with the Family. Being on the river is great as well. We will most definitely be back for a fourth time and many more to come. The Homeowner, Ms. Phylis is wonderful and very accommodating. It was another great Thanksgiving week!!

Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We drove from Texas to hike waterfalls.First off,this property is located so well to beautiful State Parks .Jones Gap State Park is right up the road and truly a slice of Heaven.The House is tucked away off the road and is a slice of heaven itself.All the furnishings are just beautiful.The beds and bedding are top of the line.It comes equipped with everything you could possibly need plus lots of extras most hosts don’t offer.We had a couple of questions when we first arrived and our hosts were very quick to respond.We enjoyed the roaring fireplace each night.Wood is chopped and conveniently located for use. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.You truly thought of everything to make a perfect luxury stay!I️ wish all my friends and family could go see for themselves.We give the hosts and house the highest ratings.Jimmy and Terri Piel

Great house, great location, great trip!

  • 5 of 5

(10/5-10/8/2017)--7 women

This house is set in a wonderful location...close to a variety of parks, nearly on the creek, shopping, winery, and more!

The layout of the house is perfect! (master room-king and bathroom, room with 2 twins, room with 1 queen, and room for airbeds--there are 2 or 3 at the house)....huge front porch with rockers, big back deck, big yard....just awesome! The deco is also fantastic! Updated and beautiful, but with the rustic/cabin feel!

Me and 6 of my 'sisters' went for a Christian retreat weekend....what...a...blast!

Absolutely LOVED our stay in this home/at this property!!!

Fun had, memories made!

This beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bath home was built in 2008. It is nestled on the bank of the Middle Saluda River. Our mountain home is just minutes away from many State Parks, forests, and recreational areas. There are endless activities that can be enjoyed in the surrounding area such as hiking, fishing, boating, golfing, bird watching, and biking. Our vacation home is close to Asheville, Flat Rock, Hendersonville, and not too far away from Brevard, NC. You can venture into Travelers Rest, SC and enjoy local restaurants, and the Swamp Rabbit Trail bike, running, or walking trail.

Our home provides an open room concept for the kitchen and living room areas. Our kitchen has everything you need to make you feel at home. You can relax on one of three porches. The front porch allows you to rock or swing as you enjoy your peaceful, relaxing vacation. Our gas grill or charcoal grill is located on the back porch where you can sit and dine or simply drink your coffee. The master bedroom has a screened porch located off of the back porch with more comfortable seating for your relaxation.

Less than 500 feet from the back porch, you can swim in the Middle Saluda River, fish, or enjoy one of the two fire pits located on this property. There is also a screened porch area near the river so you can enjoy the view and sounds of the gurgling river as you eat.
