Vacation Get-away

  • 5 of 5

This home is very inviting and comfortable. We had a great time just relaxing in the living room in the evenings. There is plenty of room to enjoy your stay. The home feels very safe and secure. Our pet dog, Maxie, really enjoyed exploring the outside. We definitely recommend this home for a quiet, relaxing vacation get-away. Plan on returning. Sandy, you have a wonderful home. Thanks for making your home available.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed staying in secluded home - beats any hotel! Well stocked, clean, comfortable and great views. Relaxing evenings on patio grilling out was great. Not able to explore the area unfortunately but still enjoyed our stay.

A True Cozy Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This Cozy Mountain Home is just that!! When we walked in, it gave us such a feeling of comfort that made us want to stay forever. If you love the mountains and want a place that is truly cozy, this home has all you could want. Sandy has it well stocked and the amenities are all there!! We were a family of 4 adults, a 2 years old boy and 2 month girl. It was accommodating to all of us, young and old. There is so much to do in this area and Sandy's write-up covers it well. I can't say enough about this home, except we fell in love with it. Living in Jacksonville, Florida, we travel to that area to visit family. We do know that upon returning, we will first check to see if this Cozy Mountain Home is available. If you are interested, talk to Sandy. She is so helpful and nice to chat with!

A very special getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay, there were five of us, at Cozy Mountain was everything the listing states

and so much more. The owner, Sandy, was very accommodating and suggested so many interesting sights and restaurants. Her home was not only

clean and maintained, but so homey with so many personal touches. An abundance of fresh linen and kitchen supplies. Plenty of hot water and very cold well water to quench your thirst. The views were fantastic and

the trails such fun. Do carry the walking sticks, some challenging hills.

Our son is confined to a wheelchair and accessibility in and around the house

couldn't have been better. My 94 year old father appreciated the WiFi for his

Kindle Fire. All in all a very special get away home I would recommend to

All. A return visit is definitely in the planning, we just didn't have time for all

the sights. Thank you Sandy for sharing your mountain retreat. The award-Pods
