Great weekend get away for couples
Thanks Don for a great stay. The weather stunk but we still enjoyed all the amenities for our 23rd anniversary. The deer were awesome as well.Our sixth year renting a cabin for our anniversary and definitely the best one yet.
Very Cozy and Relaxing!
This is a perfect cabin to get away from everything, especially during cold months! The cabin has plenty of room and is very relaxing! It is very secluded, only one cabin up on the hill blocked by trees. All of the provided instructions for using everything in the cabin made it very easy. The driving directions the owner provided made getting to the cabin very simple, even for us arriving in the dark.
The hot tub was very clean and worked perfect, unlike many cabins we have rented. And I didn't mind checking the chemical levels at all, that is a great policy to keep it clean and sanitary! The fire pit was a nice touch while relaxing in the hot tub, although it was too cold to enjoy the large deck.
There are deer all over the entire area of beech mountain, two even came up near the hot tub while we were in it.
We used the sauna on a rainy cold day and it was very cozy and clean! Beware, it heats up quick and holds heat very well! This was very nice on the cold, windy day we had!
The main part of the cabin (fireplace, kitchen, main bedroom) stays warmer than the added living area and added bedroom, since the thermostat is in that part of the cabin and the thermometer is limited as far as the temperature, highest we could go was 73, so living area temp wasn't as comfortable as we would have liked it to be. Also the added bedroom stays cool for the same reason and also all of the sliding doors in that room. Sleeping in that room would have been chilly.
Beware of the driveway if driving a car, we had to get a running start every time and the driveway is rutted out which makes it worse! We barely made it each time, spinning the entire way up (on a rear wheel drive car).
The only issues we had were cleaning issues...there were dishes that weren't cleaned well in the cabinet, moldy coffee grounds left in the coffee maker, and a dirty hand towel in the bathroom. Also, all the nooks and crannies could use a good cleaning (corners, under and around beds, floors, etc)
Additionally, having to take your own trash down is inconvenient, especially having to put trash in the back seat of my car. Luckily, we didn't have our daughter or friends so we actually had room back there to put it.
We loved the cabin and hope to stay here again someday! There are so many things to do near the cabin or within an hour drive! There's no way I could give the cabin any less than 5 stars.
Thank you very much for your 5 star review. Also thank you for taking the time to point out some issues that need addressing. First I am having of truck load of gravel stone delivered tomorrow so that I can fill in the ruts and dips that had developed in the driveway over the past year. Second I am ordering a new dishwasher to replace the present unit which has some age to it. This should resolve the occasional dirty dish issue. Also I have forwarded your cleaning comments on to my cleaning service for their use. As for the thermostat settings, I am changing the high limit setting to 75F from the present 73F. Again I really appreciate your review and hope you will come back to the cabin in the future.
Perfect Romantic Getaway!
Don's place was perfect for our weekend stay as a couple! It is cozy, extremely clean, and has a secluded feel while still being close to everything in Beech Mountain and just a short drive to Banner Elk. The cabin was equipped with anything we needed and the instructions for everything were very easy to follow. The hot tub was immaculate and such a great addition to our stay! The sauna looked great but we unfortunately didn't have enough time to check it out during this trip. We are definitely planning to return to Don's place in the future and would highly recommend it to everyone!
Couples Mountain Getaway
Awesome place! Completely as advertised and described. Owner is very attentive to the details and made everything simple and easy.
Make sure you follow his written directions. Google maps takes you in the back way and it’s a lot longer of a drive on a dirt road.
The driveway is gravel and steeper than it looks in the pictures.
We have an all wheel drive vehicle that slipped some on the way up but made it fine.
Firewood is provided but as others said, bring your own charcoal/lighters/etc.
The cabin is in the woods completely so no Mountain View. But lots of scenic views around the area for sure.
There are a ton of deer in the area and they literally walk up to about 10 ft from you.. so pretty.
Lastly be ready to take your trash home with you as the property instructions tell you to take it when you leave.
We didn’t use the sauna. But we did use the jacuzzi and it was spotless. All the instructions provided for maintaining the water balance and chemical levels. Note there is a $50 fee if you leave it untreated and the water needs replacing. Completely understandable and appreciated as I have been to cabins with unbalanced and mildew infested jacuzzi tubs. Not pleasant.
We had a wonderful weekend and would absolutely come back to this property again!
Just what we expected and hoped for!
The property was as advertised. Cozy and quaint. Made good use of the sauna and hot tub. Appreciated the instructions that we received first hand from the owner.
Perfect cabin for our mini vacation!
Great set up! Had no issues at the cabin at all and everything was well taken care of and worked the way it was suppose to and we enjoyed ourselves throughly! The sauna and hot tub was a nice little add on although we didn't use the sauna since it's summer time and a little warm for that but it would probably be great in the winter! We did use the hot tub in the evening after the sun went down just a couple of the nights and that was nice! We used the grill and it was a perfect little grill for our needs and helped us save some money on food, although you will need to bring charcoal and fluid if you intend to use the grill! We enjoyed the Area and went to banner elk, we went to Grandfather Mountain, Blowing rock and even enjoyed a couple waterfalls in the area! We look forward to booking our next get away and definitely recommend this cabin to all who are looking for a great little peace of heaven to escape to!
Ps. Mr Tate was very interactive as needed and very helpful! Great place and definitely one I would return to!
