Great Family Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We were very comfortable and had plenty of room for privacy. The cabin was clean as a pin and located in a perfectly mainicured development. We enjoyed the cozy den at night after a full day of hiking in The Linville Gorge Wilderness. Old Hampton Store & Barbeque was a a fun place to eat dinner while listening to a local bluegrass band. We also recommend Bella's Italian in nearby Banner Elk for delicious pasta. We will most definitely return next year!

cozy cabin in mountain area!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights with my friend's family in this cabin a few weeks ago. We had fun time in nearby Sugar mountain. The cabin isn't very big but it's as cozy as home. We will definitely come back in Fall to view the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway.

The owner ( manager) is a really nice guy. We accidentally left a basket full of our necessities after leaving the place. I contacted the owner and informed him this incident. He kindly picked up the stuffs and drove about 20 miles to send it to us quickly. A really responsible owner. Thanks, Doug!
