No tv reception so bring your dvd's. Wifi box was on but couldnt get any reception from it and yes i used the correct password that was given. Air Conditioner didnt work. Water smelled like sulfuric acid or hydrogen sulfide ("spoiled eggs") so bad that you didnt even want to shower in it or use the sink. So other than that it has a nice large deck to sit and enjoy the veiw of the river and enjoy the weather. I will not recommend or stay at this location again. I wouldnt consider this a fishermans paradise either due to the lack of trout in the river behind the cabin.
Nice location, property could use some fixing
The location of the cabin is great, close to 2 ski resorts and near several great restaurants. The stream in the backyard is very nice and great for having a pet along. That said, the cabin can really use some TLC. The electrical wiring is very poor (wires running along ceiling beams and power strips all over the place) and several bulbs were missing. Also, the main bathroom ceiling is not finished. The second bathroom listed in the description is in the basement, which could use some through cleaning up and serious organization. The Wi-Fi connectivity was good given that there was no cell phone reception in the area (which was to be expected), but there was also no working land line, which would make it hazardous in case of a true emergency. This also affected all communication attempts with management. After the first day of our stay, the heating system stopped working and we had to use a small portable electric radiator during some of the coldest days of the year (single digit temperatures). The management was notified and they sent a technician out to us the next day to check the system. It turned out the propane had run out. They called in a propane refueling service that came out within the hour. Once the propane was refilled, the gas fireplace started working again, but the main house heating did not. The technician stated that the outside unit did not work, so we wouldn't be able to use the main heating system, just the fireplace. At the end of our stay, we had to dispose of our own trash (per NC rental laws) which was fine for us, except the "convenience center" (trash disposal center) listed on the cabin instructions was closed on the day we left (a Tuesday). Given that no other alternate convenience center was listed, we ended up having to drive around with the trash in our car looking for an open alternative for an hour. Definitely not what we had imagined from the description and the pictures.
Great location. Great deck.
The location is wonderful. The deck is amazing. The 2nd bedroom is a double bed with a bunk over it. The 2nd bathroom is in the basement. This configuration was a little uncomfortable with 2 couples. It would be nice arrangement for a family. The TV's were great.The main bathroom walls need to be finished. We saw 9 deer in the adjacent field!
Perfect river cabin
My family stayed here and we loved the location. My 3 year old and my Jack Russell loved playing and floating in the river. There was plenty of room for us. The bathroom does need some updating but it looks like there are some repairs being made with the ceiling. But overall, the place was great for a quick summer mountain get-a-way. If you are just looking for basic but comfy, then you will be happy here.
A weekend getaway with family
Your place is so quaint and it gives you the feel of being in the mountains. Enjoyed the view of the river and the deer was a plus. Nice and quiet area. Very well stocked kitchen. We would definitely recommend your home and even come back ourselves. Thank you for opening your home to us. My family had a wonderful time!!
PROS: This is a great location...quiet and peaceful but very central to Boone, Banner Elk, Blowing Rock and Valle Crucis. Valle Crucis has a great park on the river with a walking trail and playground for children. Mast General store is a real treat and there is a great restaurant called Over Yonder that had a wonderful menu and the food was tasty. The cabin was comfortable and had a well equipped kitchen. The deck is awesome with a great view of the river. Deer came through the backyard every evening. It was a cozy and relaxing place to spend a week. I got exactly what I needed which was some R&R. The owner and management company were very communicative and responsive to my needs.
CONS: I only used the master bedroom and the mattress was very uncomfortable. Apparently there had also been some roof/ceiling repair as there was only plywood in a couple of sections with the wallcovering coming off in the bathroom. To fully enjoy the deck, I had to sweep as well as knock down cobwebs around the deck and front porch.
