                                                              This property was perfect for our family! We celebrated our youngest son’s 30th!

                                                              Cozy, quiet, plenty of space for the 8 of us. Ping Pong table was a hit. We all enjoyed the fireplace. Just a great space. Thank you!

                                                              Glad to hear you enjoyed your time here at our cabin!

                                                              Good for the price!

                                                              Overall it was a great stay! I do have to say that the sun room’s roof leaked and smelled like mildew or animal urine of some sort, but we closed the door and it was fine. Also it says it sleeps 10, we only had beds for 8. After the first night we discovered two extra mattresses stored away, wish he had known that but again; minor issue as there were multiple couches to crash on. The location was great and lots of parking space if you need it. Would stay again, thanks Kay and Gus!

                                                              Thank you for your review. In our defense the site says it sleeps 8 in beds, but will accommodate 10. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

                                                              The sunroom is having issues with roof leaking during big rains, which we are looking into repairing this Spring. It is not a heated room of the house and should be kept closed during the winter months.

                                                              I'm glad your large party of 10 would consider staying again. We are very affordable for the space we do provide to our guests : 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms with fully stocked kitchen, internet and satellite tv service.

                                                              Kay and Gus

                                                              Lovely space. Perfect for our group of 8, including the ping pong table downstairs which our sons loved. The January nights a little chilly for exploring much outside and our hours were few but the house was great for our needs.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              We are glad the house worked for your family. Hope you'll consider a return trip to our mountains when the weather is warmer to be able to enjoy some outdoor time.

                                                              This place is OUTSTANDING! It was a prefect girls night/bday weekend. Very spacious very cozy. The view was gorgeous to wake up to. Easy to find everything and Kay was very helpful. I will definitely stay again. Planning for a summer trip now.

                                                              Really cozy spot, especially in the winter. Great relaxed atmosphere tucked in the mountains

                                                              Kay and Gus made sure the driveway was cleared of impassable snow and ice. Everything was in order and very clean in the cabin. Able to sleep 10 on beds and couches. Really enjoyed the cabin and it’s tucked away location so close to Asheville Brewery options.

                                                              We loved everything about the home. We created lots of memories with our kids. The area is amazing.
