About Amy Barclay

I have been coming to Montreat my entire life and my husband and I got married here. It's our favorite place on earth. We recently purchased this home and it has been newly decorated and furnished and has a brand new kitchen, bathroom and flooring!

Amy Barclay purchased this house in 2014

Why Amy Barclay chose Blue Ridge Mountains

We love this property first because of its proximity to everything in Montreat. It is directly across the street from the park, the tennis courts, the playground and the creek. We also love being able to sit on the decks and look at the view of the mountains.

Terrific house in a Wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time staying in the Barclay Treehouse. The amenities were wonderful and the location was perfect. Right next to the tennis courts and playground. The house was clean, beds comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with everything you needed for a week trip. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Sweet location and adorable treehouse! Kids loved it too!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and only wished we had more time to hang out in this awesome cottage! Fun, octagonal house feels like a treehouse right in the heart of wonderful Montreat. Next time we are staying longer, bringing our blankets, and planning on more hangout time on the decks!

Thank you!!!

Very cute but lacking in a few necessities

  • 3 of 5

This was a cute little vacation home and it easily accommodated our needs for the few days that we were visiting my daughter at Montreat College. It was in very close proximity to the school which is exactly what I was looking for. The climate remained comfortable throughout our stay and the home had updated digital thermostats. The kitchen only had 4 coffee cups which was odd for a home that accommodates 8 people. At one time we had guests and came up a little short but we managed. I didn't really like the lack of amenities such as toilet paper and paper towels. Immediately upon our arrival I had to rush out and buy those necessities as there was very little of those things in the home at the time of our arrival. I also failed to observe the note on the email that let me know that sheets and towels are not provided at this residence in our rental fees and forgot to bring those but we borrowed what we needed from my daughter's dorm room less the King bed. If I had packed those things from home then this would have been the perfect spot to visit our daughter. If you are looking for strictly a vacation spot in the mountains, you should be forewarned that your view is of the tennis courts instead of nature. Overall this residence met our needs and we enjoyed it.

Owner's Response: I have to admit I am confused by your review after you sounded so grateful on the phone. We stated on VRBO and in our welcome letter you were sent a week prior to your rental that we do not provide linens but you can rent them for your stay. This is pretty standard in Montreat. When you called me upon your arrival, you admitted you never read any of the information I had sent you nor the details on our VRBO site. Regardless, we did not want this to hinder your vacation so we offered to get you a full set of linens for all of the beds but you said you only needed King sheets. So we made sure we were able to get you King sheets and we did not charge you. We paid the maid service ourselves to clean the sheets and towels you used. Detailed house information is on VRBO including pictures. The view from the deck is of trees, the tennis courts and the mountain behind it. One of the things our renters love is the close proximity to everything in Montreat including the park, creek and lake. For a larger view, there are a couple Montreat homes that are available to rent that are further away from the center of Montreat and higher on a mountain. I wish you had called me about the coffee mugs. There are 7 in the kitchen cabinet and 3 on the cabinet shelf. Unfortunately we can not provide renters with everything they need but we do provide more than most rentals including starter toilet paper, paper towels, plenty of trash bags, recycling bags, dish soap, dish detergent, ziplocks, wraps and condiments. I'm not sure how we could have made your stay better but hope you enjoyed your time in Montreat.

A Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This Montreat house was perfect for a summer vacation in the mountains. When we arrived, the house was clean and inviting. The house is in close proximity to the tennis courts, playground, Lake Susan, and hiking trails. One of my favorite parts was being able to enjoy a cup of coffee on the deck each morning in the perfect temperature.

The cabin had all the necessities and communication with the owner was easy. It was so helpful that the owner left a binder filled with restaurant recommendations, a map with hiking trails, and several pamphlets for outdoor activities in the area as well as tidbits about the Montreat community.

I would definitely recommend a stay at this mountain house to anyone. I hope we will be able to do the same thing next summer. It was a great place to stay! We enjoyed everything about it!
