Amazing, big and spacious

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and really enjoyed our stay. we loved how spacious the house is and that ir is in a very private area but at the same time easy to find. The waterfall getting to the cabin is amazing as well. We has no problem finding the cabin and it was close to the caverns and the falls. We would definitely love to stay here again. I also appreciate how fast you responded to our request. Everything was perfect.

Cute Cabin with Responsive Host!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is very cute and fits more amenities than you can imagine in all three of its floors! When we finally got to the location, we had no idea where the actual cabin was and so we called the host very late at night, hoping they'd respond. They did and gave us great directions to the cabin! We really enjoyed our stay at this cabin and hope to come again!

Comfortable Cabin in Gated Community

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Black Sheep Corral. This nicely decorated cabin is located in an attractive gated community between Linville Falls and Marion, NC. The house sits by itself among trees and shrubs. There are no other houses in sight except for a neighbor across the street whose house can barely be glimpsed through the trees. A large deck is perfect for sitting and watching the stars at night.

Furniture is comfortable and the cabin is very clean. The owner gave clear directions on all aspects of our visit, including on how to operated the TV remotes. (This is a guessing game at many places we have stayed and we appreciate getting the info.)

Hope to return to this someday.

The perfect get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our family, and the cleanest place we have ever stayed. It was child friendly and located in the exact right place for a visit to Grandfather Mountain and play time for the little boys at the water falls and pool just below the cabin. We were all sorry we couldn't stay longer! And the real bonus was watching the stars come out while sitting on the deck. The Milky Way was extraordinary. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us.

  • 4 of 5

We needed four bedrooms for a family weekend get-together. The cabin and the location were just right for our needs- close to the highway, very well-stocked, and not mashed up against other cabins. The waterfall and swimming hole were delightful- even better than expected. The driveway has been mentioned before, but three vehicles (our situation) can easily park, while a fourth takes some planning. A dishwasher would have been nice, but there is really no room for it in the kitchen. The three bedrooms (with bath) are all on different levels, insuring some privacy. The bunk bed room is on the main floor.

I looked at several other cabins, but I noticed an annoying trend- that is when the stated unit prices add up(in the automatic calculation) to more than one's own calculations. That is not the case here as the rates are reasonable, flexible (in that a two night stay was allowed), and include no hidden costs.
