A piece of Heavan

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely cabin! We spent a long weekend here and were thrilled with this rental. Very clean and comfortable. Supplied with every thing you need including a canoe for the private lake. Serene and private, all you could hear were the hummingbirds, nature and the sighs of relaxation! Rent it and you get to enjoy the beauty of the private lake and the sweet waterfall on the other side. Close to Chimney Rock too. We loved being able to build a fire outside and make s'mores. Sit on the screened porch in the morning sipping coffee. Just couldn't have been any happier with it. Penny and Jeff, from the leasing company were fantastic...responsive and helpful.

Owner's Response: Hi Patricia, Thanks for taking the time to review our home, End of the Rainbow. Glad you enjoyed the peacefulness the area and cabin offer. The lakes and waterfalls in Riverbend are truly a joy. Lake Lure and Chimney Rock are just spectacular all year round. We enjoy time spent here for all the reasons you speak to. Hope to have you return in the near future. Thanks again.

Beautiful however.....

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful cabin... would have loved it except for the stink bugs! Disappointed that I had no idea I went at the wrong time of year... overseer offered no assistance when I advised that i couldn't use back porch due to investation (it was a main factor in renting cabin).. feel I am entitled to a refund. .. :(

Owner's Response: Hi Penny, “Stinkbugs” are common in mountainous areas and are simply vacuumed up. A quick phone call to us would have corrected this in less than half an hour. We were never made aware of your concern until this review was submitted to us, 2 months after you departed. This seems awfully unfair to me. We flipped the house on the day of your departure and have had 5 rentals since, receiving no word of any problems as you describe.
