Comfortable and attractive

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful floors and kitchen, high quality beds, bedding, and furniture; huge yard and basement give kids and dogs plenty of room to play. Every thought given to making dogs welcome, and such a lovely assortment of books, both for kids and adults! Great location - 20 minutes from Appalachian Ski, less than 10 minutes into the cute ski town. Chris, the owner, was very responsive throughout the booking process and stay. Can't wait to return!

.. Road to property is a real problem car is in danger of damage from road

  • 3 of 5

Location is great. deck needs to be cleaned up. (mold on railing) Get rid of the chairs that are broken. Big problem with ants in eating area and cupboards. Garbage was not picked up from last renter and our stay. This is just helpful information. We enjoyed the stay and found a lot of positives.

Owner's Response: Larry Thanks for the review. Did know about the ants. Where were they? Coming from window? We noticed when we were up there last that one of the chairs had a crack on it but how many are like that? My wife just had our first child last week and we haven't been going up there to check between guests like last year (we have to leave it to our cleaning lady to take care of these things). So the road was an issue? I know it can be rough in spots but we have never had a complaint unless it's gotten worse. Hope you had some time times despite the issues. Best, Chris

Loved this place! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We brought our two grandsons and two dogs. The location was close to everything we wanted to do. Though it rained every day while we were there, we were still able to do what we wanted. Everyone enjoyed Grandfather Mountain and hiking the trails at Moses Cone Manor. The house was perfect for our dogs. This is truly a pet-friendly home. Great yard. The boys loved the rope swing and Ping-Pong table. They even got to see a couple of deer in the neighborhood. We will definitely come back.

Lovely cabin, great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at Chris' cabin. It's close to Grandfather Mountain and Blowing Rock and very easy to find. The house and yard are well kept and thoughtfully stocked with furniture and amenities. Although we did not bring our dogs this trip, we would absolutely consider it in the future. All in all, we would definitely stay here again!
