Walking and hiking trails that begin out of the driveway will lead you to a creek, waterfall, and ponds. With its open concept living plan, this house is the epitome of spacious and comfortable living (no cabin fever here) that melds inspirational interior spaces with the natural landscape and wildlife (deer, wild turkeys, hawks, geese) outdoors.

Just. Wow! Having only looked at the photos I feel as though I just went on a little get away. We will be attending the events at the TIEC this weekend, and although I see you're already booked, I still just had to take a moment to say that your home is one of the most beautiful properties I have ever seen. Hope you have a great day.”

Fantastic house with architectural beauty, character and great views. LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5

This house has a soul. It has an eclectic style w mid century antiques art and modern conveniences. It is stocked with everything you can imagine. The views, the decks and the large gathering spaces are perfect for family reunion. It has great commercial kitchen, fantastic electronics (large tv's in every room, music speakers everywhere), and the location is very private, but also convenient to supermarkets, liquor stores :) and other necessities. Great access to easy all family hiking. Beautiful lake front/mountain views that are just perfect at dawn and dusk. Hosts are super friendly and accessible 24/7. Great experience!!

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay in this beautiful home. Inside and outside this property exceeds all expectations. The home is spotlessly clean, the rooms are all large, there are games and books in each room, the kitchen is fantastic, and common rooms just so comfy! We are eight adults (ranging from 52-19) and each of us was so happy. The property is all amazing with a waterfall in walking distance and we saw 11 deer, turkey and a number of birds. The owners of the home are also just lovely helping in anyway they can. I cannot recommend this property enough! You will love it!

Perfect retreat for NYE

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 were looking for a retreat-type getaway to celebrate NYE and found exactly that with this place! The hospitality was outstanding and the house was completely ready for a group of our size. We really enjoyed how much the common spaces brought us together to cook, eat, play games, and really enjoyed how the remote location helped us get away from everything else. We did bring speakers and recommend doing so just to be sure you can fill the high ceilings with as much life as you'd like. Don't overlook the uppermost nook with one twin bed... might be the best in the place! Thanks you for such a lovely getaway!

Wonderful property and terrific homeowners

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving at Pam and George's home in Columbus, NC. The home is exactly as you see in the photos and even better because the location is easy to get to will still being in a very nice, secluded area.

Pam and George are very easy to contact and worked with us to make sure we did not get lost and also helped us with questions/special requests. The house is fully stocked with towels, pillows, games, kitchenware, spices etc. so you do not need to pack a lot of stuff for your stay.

I definitely recommend it for groups as the home is very open and has a large kitchen so meal prep is easy. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious so your group will not feel like they are running into each other in the house. We enjoyed the wood burning fireplace (there was lots of wood cut and stacked for us) as well as the terrific sunsets.

The home is within 10 minutes of grocery stores, restaurants and other shops which is a nice plus.

Beautiful setting, unique home

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here! Owners took good care of us with their well-equipped home and welcome gifts! We couldn’t take in enough of the quiet, beautiful fall landscape from almost every angle of this uniquely designed home.

Owner's Response: Lynn and her family were delightful guests. They left the house so clean it was hard to tell anyone had been there. Any homeowner who hosts this group in the future will be lucky to have such a conscientious group. Pam Baston

Beautiful home, beautiful property, great people

  • 5 of 5

Our cycling group came down from Chicago to ride in the mountains and we were fortunate enough to find this home on VRBO. It is a truly beautiful home in a gorgeous setting. The home was spotless, the kitchen had everything we needed, and Pam and George could not have been more kind or accommodating. There was a community-wide power outage one evening while we were there and Pam showed up in minutes with a slew of new flashlights and other lights that we used while grilling steaks and vegetables. We ended up having dinner by candlelight. It was great fun. (The power came back on before we all went to bed.) We'll be back next fall! Thanks for the great Southern hospitality, Pam!

Owner's Response: Patrick Navin and his cycling friends were ideal guests and a pleasure to host at our rental home. They demonstrated their appreciation for this home verbally and in the great care they took during their stay. They left our home in impeccable shape and were a delightful group. Any homeowner would be lucky to have them as guests. We will be excited to have them and even more of their friends next year if not sooner! Pam Baston
