Reviewer Comments:

We had an overall great experience. There were only two slight issues that we had with the property. The Wifi connection was spotty at best. We had the reset the power multiple times to get it to work properly. Also it was not clear where the outside trash cans were located after searching the house extensively we were not able to locate. Otherwise, we would happily stay at this beautiful property again! Creek was a plus and the highlight of the vacation with the kids being able to tube in the creek, especially after the rain!

This home is lovely! Nicely situated on the creek with privacy and no neighbors in sight. We enjoyed sitting on the porch, playing in the creek, and visiting the surrounding areas. Highly recommend for families!

Our family visited the Kibbin, and it was simply amazing. The views and house itself were stunning! Kids played by the stream most of the days (even in the cold). We are already planning our return trip.

We had a wonderful relaxing time at the Kibbin. Beautiful home, wonderful landscape surrounding, easy check in and check out process. The home as a little history too! Home had all the amenities we needed and more. Great place to get away from the hustle and bustle. Far enough off the beaten path but close enough for a quick drive to Old Fort, Black Mountain and Marion. The house is also close enough to go exploring nearby Linville Gorge and Mount Mitchell. The home, location, and realty company exceeded our expectations. We'll definitely be back.

Reviewer Comments:

We rented Kibbin to attend a family wedding in the mountains. The rental agency's website photos and helpful advice led us to just the right spot. Kibbin offered both privacy and opportunities for our family to come together! We enjoyed a morning fire in the outside fireplace with our coffee, and the stream provided just the right amount of soothing sound. Our family hiked in the woods, and also went to Chimney Rock. We visited nearby Biltmore, and the Asheville area. Leaving the heat and humidity of the deep South for a beautiful autumn week in the mountains will be long remembered.
