Wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My Family spent Presidents Day weekend at the Black Sheep Cabin, and had a wonderful time! The cabin is well stocked from the kitchen to the blankets, and games for the kids! The view from the deck was beautiful as well! We spent two days traveling to the snow tubing hills at Hawksnest and Blowing Rock, and the cabin is so close to the main route, we were there in no time at all. Thank you to the Francis Family for making your beautiful home available ! :-)

As Pictured

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was as pictured: clean and modest. For families with children or for a larger group it would be nice because of the number of beds, but for us as a couple, it was not ideal. The loft is by far the most appealing place to sleep but the queen mattress is in terrible shape and completely concaved. It was miserable to sleep on. A new king-sized mattress upstairs would be a huge improvement. I also feel that the wifi should be unlimited.

Owner's Response: Sorry you did not find the loft bed comfortable. This is the first complaint we have received, especially since it was replace with a new mattress and box spring last July(2017). As for the wifi, it is "Dish satellite internet", the speeds are limited and once the data limit is approached the download speed is reduced. There is no limit on usage from our guests but if guests stream video content and the data allowance is approached, the download speeds are reduced. You still have plenty of speed to surf the internet and download emails etc... Due to the limited internet access in the area, the internet and wifi is to basically check emails and surf the internet, not watch streaming videos or movies. Unfortunately, there is no other provider for internet in the area. Again, I am sorry the cabin did not meet your expectations. I will look into the loft bed with my management company and make changes if necessary. With future improvements and or changes, we hope to have you back and we can meet your expectations. Sincerely, Greg Francis

Beautiful, quiet and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful relaxing time at Black Sheep Corral. The cabin was spacious enough for all seven of us, including our 3 dogs. Parking space for 4 vehicles was good even though there is no "flat" land. Overall wonderful stay!
