Beautiful house, secluded location- wonderful!
We had a great time retreating here. I was in town for a conference and had family join me. There was ample space for everyone and the house was wonderful. The kitchen had any and everything we needed to be able to cook.
Before we went I read reviews about the driveway. The owner was wonderful in telling me, if possible, to drive it the first time in daylight. That was a great tip. It is steep but I was fine driving it. We had a 4Runner, a Subaru and a small Honda sedan. All vehicles easily maneuvered the driveway, just use caution and be patient. It’s worth the trek up the mountain!!
The owners were great to communicate and help answer any questions we had before arriving. The welcome packet was helpful for while we were there. I highly recommend this home and would visit again in the future.
Great views, great home
We loved staying at Old Sarum. The road was a bit more extreme than we expected, but that's the mountains for you. The view is fantastic -- although a few trees could use trimming. The home has plenty of space/beds. We even got an early morning visit from a neighbor's two dogs making their morning rounds! Definitely recommend this mountain getaway.
A climb to remember
Spent the weekend at this cabin with friends and my fiancé to celebrate her birthday. The drive up the mountain was the most exhilarating experience I’ve encountered in life... next to skydiving. You definitely want someone confident and composed to drive!
2- Get enough groceries for the length of your stay because you will not want to travel up and down the mountain if you can avoid it.
3- This House had everything we wanted and needed.. plenty of space .. plenty of fire wood and an incredible view! We want to come back!
The road up to the cabin was a little scary but so worth it to wake up to those views!!
A great place for a getaway
We stayed at Old Sarum this Oct 2017. It was about an hours drive from Asheville. My GPS gave clear directions to the place, but a friend's GPS did not. Google Maps gives correct directions, but it does not work once you lose the signal (you lose mobile network as soon as you start the uphill drive on the dirt road, verizon, at&t... all).
We reached there after sunset and it had already become dark. The final stretch of dirt road that leads to the house is narrow, steep and with sharp turns at some places. My two wheel drive sedan could easily climb with full capacity + luggage, but my friend's wagon did not. He had to stop, backup a couple of times. It can be scary at night to stop and backup on such a steep road. Can't imagine going there during snow with 2 wheel drive.
The place itself was good. Very clean, cozy and good for a getaway. It had enough linen, toiletries, and kitchen was well equipped. The only reason for 4 stars is the stench coming from all toilets that persisted through our stay that probably came from the septic tank. Nothing helped remove the stench. We told the owner about it and he responded with a few tips. I am sure he must have taken care of it now.
It shouldn't hold you back from staying here. If you are looking for a quiet place away from city life, this is a good place.
Wonderfully appointed home!
This is an amazing house. The owners made sure that everything needed was provided at the home on arrival.
