Wonderful retreat nestled in the side of a mountain with views.
Our family spent Thanksgiving weekend in this beautifully furnished mountain retreat. All 7 of us, plus an infant, had plenty of space. The loft held a family of 4 plus an infant with ease, with their own full bath. There was a cabinet full of games for all ages. The kitchen was well stocked and refrigerator big enough to hold our turkey and fixings. There also was a high chair. Although it was too chilly to sit in the screened in room, it was cozy and inviting. My family used the hot tub which is perched outside the screened in room with beautiful mountain views. There was a view from just about every window. We enjoyed drinking coffee in the morning watching the birds feed at the bird feeder. Although the driveway appeared intimidating, we went up with ease and unloading our cars was easy. We would certainly rent this beautiful home again.
Nicely located and well stocked
Two couples spent the weekend attending annual auction at Penland. House very well stocked with provisions, well laid out and comfortable. That driveway is intimidating, but you will get up and down without incident.
Always like having a screened in porch this time of year and we enjoyed breakfast and dinner with the birds swarming the feeder.
One slight hitch was getting an incorrect code number for the key box. Fortunately the owner answered her phone and all clear. If she hadn't been available that would have been a frustrating situation.
We enjoyed our stay. The house was everything we hoped and the owner very attentive to our needs.
Great place. Plenty of privacy. The only detraction was that the driveway was more of a challenge than we expected. The driveway is the only thing that kept me from giving this a five-star rating.
Perfect little spot for us & has all the amenities we needed!
Kori was an excellent host! She was super accommodating, prompt, & extremely helpful! She made sure we had everything we needed, gave us advice on where to go and eat, and her home was so clean and comfortable! Everything is pictured accurately in her listing.
The house sits on a steep hill, near a somewhat busy road. It was slightly noisy, but didn't bother us much. We were too astonished by the spectacular views of the mountains! And my Chihuahua absolutely loved all the space and grass in the yard! My boyfriend and I spent the first night in the jacuzzi, watching the sun disappear over the mountains. There was a slight obstruction of the view due to all the trees, but it was still nice. As soon as it got dark, we were surrounded by fireflies--NOT an exaggeration!! The bed upstairs is very comfortable! A bit soft for my liking, but my boyfriend loved it. There are books everywhere, video games consoles, internet has a strong signal, and satellite TV w/Netflix. The AC worked very well and there is a lot of room in the home!
The next morning, we made breakfast in her well equipped kitchen. The grocery store is about 25 mins away from the house; so we had to stop before arriving. She will let you know details if you book!! We headed to Roan Mountain for a 3.5 hour hike, with out little Chihuahua. He had more fun than we did! The mountains are only a 20 min drive from the rental. Amazing views of the mountains and skies, beautiful fields of colorful flowers, and there were several different trails for all levels!
We had such a great time for my birthday getaway! And all this was made possible by Kori! ...and my boyfriend's credit card, of course! ;D haha! The only complaint I would have is the bugs: spiders and wasps. It is hard to have control over where they nest or go...so I definitely cannot, and do not, hold it against Kori. If I ever decide to visit that area again, I will definitely reach out to Kori and try to book her home!
Great Property for a Get-Away
This property has great views, an excellent layout and everything you need for a getaway. It is very clean, well stocked and beautifully decorated. The owner is very responsive and helpful. The hot tub is great, there were plenty of towels and the owner left very clear instructions about how to use it correctly. The downstairs queen bed was very comfortable. (It was just the two of us so we didn't use any of the others - but there were three.) It is one of the best rentals we have stayed in due to the ease of working with the owner, the layout of the house and the way the house was stocked. Would definitely return.
Amazing location with beautiful views
Very well maintained, wifi worked great and the Hot Tub at sunset!!!!!!! You would just have to be there to realize the beauty. Would go back again, again, and again.
