Why Hal and Margie Kluttz chose Lansing

Hal and Margie have been spending time in Ashe County since they were married over (30) years ago. They fell in love with the cabins along the peaceful shores of the Big Horse Creek.

What makes this cabin unique

Spending the summer nights listening to the water flow down the creek from our open bedroom window was relaxing beyond description. There is just so much to see and do in Ashe County. This became our home away from home.

Quite, Cozy & Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

I tossed a dart and picked this cabin, never been to Lansing or this property. We wanted a weekend to disconnect and we got just that. I highly recommend, its clean, cozy and everything you need for a getaway anytime of the year, esp with the hot tub, it was relaxing! Beautiful views and sound of the stream.

Few things and tips to know and consider:

The town is small and not exactly around the corner. Thats the whole point, to getaway! Be sure to bring the things you need, personal items, bath products etc, food, drinks and snacks etc. The town offered an awesome place for breakfast and lunch. Pie Mountain Pizza place is highly recommended, and a market place to get items in Lansing.

About 30 min drive to West Jefferson where you can do more shopping Ingles, cvs and other various chain stores and local businesses, you can also enjoy downtown West Jefferson with all the little shops and walking.

We didn't have phone service while there, we have sprint, but you do have wifi at the cabin, a telephone is available at the cabin house. We didn't mind, we were there to disconnect.

The owner was easy to contact via phone or text. You will need to pay a big chunk upfront to rent, something to consider because many people may not have the money to put down and wait for a Refundable Damage Deposit but it is refundable and you will need to add 100 cleaning fee to your stay and $50 pet fee if you bring. With that said the rental per night beats staying in a hotel. You get a whole house!

Shower head needs to be replaced - not a negative just maintenance as with any home.

Thank you for offering this cabin for us to enjoy!

Cabin was exactly as pictures on website. Would definitely stay here again

  • 4 of 5

The creek behind the cabin is amazing! Also the DVD collection brought back a little nostalgia. Watched some movies we haven’t seen in quite awhile.

Word to the wise. If you are a city slicker like us be prepared. No cell phone signal, and gas and food are pretty remote. Wi-fi is provided, but once outside of the cabin you are on your own.

The coziest cabin we've ever stayed at

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin was amazing. The creek was so beautiful and we enjoyed the view. Being able to sit in the hot tub, or by the fire, or on the swing and always see and hear the beautiful creek was an experience that we won't soon forget. The owner was amazing and we experienced no issues while we were there. We will definitely be back and can't wait to visit again.

Cabin is old but nice...location lovely...$$$ too much!

  • 2 of 5

We enjoyed our trip to the mountains. The cabin is older but it’s nice and clean. The location and the river are lovely. BUT...this site VRBO. I will never go through them again I have rented cabins for over 20 odd years. I have never had to pay $$$ upfront for the cabin to be cleaned. It has always been in a contract that if you did not clean it, if you messed it up, if you broke something...they gave you a price that they would be taking out of your bank account. I do not understand why you have to pay a fee for them to clean the cabin that you’re paying to rent. If I broke or messed up anything or didn’t clean it to their satisfaction, I totally would understand the $$$ fee. Then there is a $$$ fee that is charged If you tear, destroy, or leave uncleaned . So I paid $$$ for them to clean then I paid a $$$ fee in case I messed it up but neither fee is refundable. Also the amount quoted per night was $good at first, then it was quoted as $$$..ok reasonable. When I rented the cabin and got my contract I was charged 40 more a night this was never one of their quoted amounts so I ended up paying almost $$$$ for two nights in an old cabin. I had reached out to the owner to possibly at least refund the difference between the $$$ a night and $$$ a night. I have gotten NO response. I did cancel the insurance through the VRBO site for $$$.. however that got an immediate response from the owner he called me almost immediately saying that he would cancel the reservation if I did not get the $$$ insurance. So needless to say the day before we were to leave I had no choice but to go ahead and purchase the $$$ insurance. Will never deal with an owner going through VRBO. RIPOFF!

Owner's Response: This guest appeared to be more upset with the policies of VRBO/Homeaway than our rustic cabin and our accommodations. While I can understand her concern these are practices by most all of the homeowners operating through VRBO. All of our guests agree to the costs associated with their reservation prior to booking.
