About Vee Ann Nielsen

John and Vee Ann live in McLeansville, outside Greensboro, NC on a small farm. Our four children and three grandchildren all live close by. We enjoy family time at the beach, the Blue Ridge Mountains and Bryson City. John and I are planning to retire soon and travel the United States. We are currently real estate brokers and part-owners of Triad Homes Realty, Inc. in Greensboro, NC.

Vee Ann Nielsen purchased this chalet in 2015

Why Vee Ann Nielsen chose Blue Ridge Highlands

This is the second unit we own in Doe Run. We have great memories of special times on Groundhog Mountain and love the peace and beauty of the mountains. We enjoy quiet times to unwind from the everyday business and it is possible when we are on the mountain. The people in the small surrounding towns remind me of my roots and growing up on the farm.

What makes this chalet unique

We fell in love with Doe Run because of some of the friendly neighbors and beautiful scenery.

We had a few days to get away to enjoy a little rest and relaxation in a quite, calm and peaceful environment not to mention seeing Gods Beautiful Masterpiece!!!

This stay had it all! The room was very nice and the directions got you right to the door. Mrs. Nielsen would email me back with in minutes with answers to my questions.

We were very pleased and more than enjoyed our stay!

Luxurious beds and cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

The picture for this condo doesn't do it justice. The colors blended well to give it a chic updated flair. It was not only clean but very comfortable. It was arranged in a very thoughtful way to make it easy to feel at home. We felt very comfortable.

Terrible Experience

  • 1 of 5

I had never done VRBO before, but I decided to give it a chance. I got a few emails confirming my reservation and the owner sent me the address. I drove up to the cabin, past the Doe Run Resort and was greeted with a giant "For Sale" sign. I went down to the door, but there was a combination lock and no answer when I knocked. Being in the mountains, there was also no phone reception or 4G. I went to the Doe Run Resort, and the ladies there were extremely helpful and helped me to call VRBO which gave me the owner's direct number. When I called, she initially said she would have to call me back. I explained that I had no phone or Internet service so that wasn't an option. Then she told me to open all the email attachments to get important information about the dumpsters. I again explained I had no internet. She finally gave me the code to get in with a lot of attitude. The girl helping me just said "well, she sounds lovely."

When we got in, the cabin was very nice, spacious, and well appointed. Unfortunately, there were no maps or inforation about the area. We did some walking around the resort grounds and went back to the cabin. I was trying to put my daughter to ved in the king bed when I realized it wasn't centered on the bed frame and was kind of sinking. I lifted up the box spring to fix it and a huge cricket jumped out. That could've happened anywhere, but yet another issue at this place.

Vee Ann finally sent the email with the combination and attachments at 7pm that night with no apology for not sending it prior to my one-night reservation.

Overall the cabin was okay, no toiletries provided which was disappointing, and no mountain view like I hoped for.

Then when we left I went to take my trash to the dumpster, which was the worst of all. I followed her instructions to get to the dumpster, parked my car with my daughter inside and got out. As I walked to the dumpster, spotlights flashed on and a loudspeaker blurted "warning -you are under video surveillance." I was a bit scared but put the trash in the dumpster anyway. The sign outside of the dumpster said "remember, you are under video surveillance. I hope for your sake you are a property owner." I ran to my car, scared to death, and the motion activated lights and loud speaker came on again. I thought maybe some militant mountain man was going to come shoot me for throwing out the trash. Anyway, I will never do VRBO again, and I don't recommend this cabin.
