Very relaxing, very private feeling and close to town.

  • 5 of 5

I can’t say enough how welcome that I felt. I appreciate how comfortable the property is and convenient. It is a perfect get away close to the highway and stores. I will recommend this cabin to anyone

Great bargain but wish there were more pictures to base things off of..

  • 3 of 5

Our stay was overall good but there were a few things that I certainly think could be improved on. There are almost no pictures of the inside and I think that is because the inside is incredibly small. In our opinion it is okay for 2, maybe 3 people to stay but even our small family with a 5 & 7 year old felt cramped inside.

The place had some good upsides such as the location being only a few minutes from the main strip in town with the restaurants, church, parks, etc. The cabin was also clean and had a TV and wifi so you could access Netflix, Amazon, etc if you wanted to. Checking in and checking out was also easy because the owner lives just right up the street.

Everything functioned correctly inside so its not that the place was a wreck, but here were the few downsides that we encountered while there:

- The pictures are a little deceiving showing the side of the cabin which appears as if it would have 2 stories of living area but that is not the case and the bottom portion of the cabin is not accessible for use.

- The couch in the living area was badly peeling and as soon as my kids sat on it to watch some TV they got bits and pieces all on their clothes.

- The bathroom was clean and cute, but even my kids had a bit of a tough time navigating the shower with how narrow it is, it reminded me of a telephone booth or maybe a shower in an RV or something.

- The sleeping loft upstairs is very small and the only thing up there was a twin and full mattress with no boxsprings. Also, the biggest issue with that area is there is no railing from that loft to the living area so if one of the kids tried to get down in the middle of the night there is about a 8-10 drop straight down to the floor. Because of this we actually pulled down the small mattress into the floor next to the couch to sleep where it was safe. The ladder that gives you access to the loft is also not fixed to the loft and it pretty easily movable which was another concern with the kids. The final reason we didn't have them sleep in the loft is that the only AC window unit for the cabin is up there which is okay because it blows very cold, but it blows directly over where the beds are and definitely wouldn't allow them to get comfortable up there.

I think with more detailed photos to showcase the property and some minor fixes like putting up railing, replacing the couch and fixing the ladder this place would be much better.

Good stay overall and thanks to the host for being great!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cute little cabin is wonderful for a getaway. Quiet and comfy. Nestled in a little cove, in a quiet little neighborhood. While sitting outside on the porch on Sunday afternoon, we could playing outside,not close but it's a great sound. Otherwise we only heard the birds chirping and the gentle breeze blowing through.

Cabin was stocked with nice linens and the basic cooking utensils. Cable TV with the choice of Netflix, slingtv and Amazon. We watched very little cable and didn't even try the others, we were relaxing..who needs the noise.

It has a loft area that could easily sleep three preteens , linens provided for this as well.

A great true cabin with true logs. And true hardwood floors. We can't wait to stay here again.

I meet Debi on Sunday and she is just what you expect as a owner.. friendly and there if you need her, but otherwise you are alone to enjoy your stay. I cant say enough good about this cabin, I have already suggested this as a stay to as many people as I can

Cute Cabin, Enjoyable Stay

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed 5 nights staying in this cabin. Very cute and well worth the value with a convenient location. We where able to visit several places across North Carolina & into Tennessee. Might suggest some updates to the decor and a few small things but overall nice stay.

Nice clean little cabin. Can't go wrong for the price.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was clean and ready upon arrival. Debi was very nice and left lots of info about the area, places to see and eat. No complaints. I would rent again from her any time.

Love this little cabin, after spending a week with family and kids at Christmas. husband and I went to regroup at this little cabin. It was so cozy, quaint. We spent all day Sunday in the cabin. We brought our food and cooked at the cabin. Will stay here again.
