  • Comfort of home with million dollar views

    "This was our first experience with vrbo and if they are all half as good as this experience it won't be our last! The home was fully stocked with everything all 15 of us could have needed (all we really needed to bring was food and toiletries!) somebody came by everyday to check on us and make sure we didn't need anything. The views were spectacular. We had 3 children ages 8, 6, and 4 with us and they LOVED playing out in the yard and watching the cows. It was a trip we will all never forget"

  • Perfect Mountain Getaway

    "My brother and I's family stayed here in June 2016. I have traveled and stayed extensively throughout the NC mountains, and this home is at the top of the list. The view from the back porch, from the living room when all the doors are open, from the bedrooms, are fantastic. There was nothing better than sitting on the back porch each night, enjoying the fire and fresh mountain air, and hanging out with the family until bed time. The home is gorgeously decorated and has all the amenities you need. The surrounding area has plenty to do - from shopping in Boone and Blowing Rock, to hiking at Mount Mitchell and Grandfather Mountain and Linville Falls, to enjoying long drives on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The owners are very friendly and excellent to work with. From someone who has rented many homes in the NC mountains and has high standards, I highly recommend this home for any mountain vacation. You won't find a better spot."

  • What a great Cabin!!

    "What a wonderful cabin. Two years ago we rented a chalet in Maggie Valley and the Pumpkin Patch cabin was far superior in all aspects. The location is wonderful, Bakersville is a quaint country town with access to other towns in the area. The area does not have that crowded touristy feeling found in Maggie Valley. We explored the caverns and waterfalls near Linville. The highway in front of the cabin led us up to Carvers Gap and a day hike on the Appalachian Trail. The Biltmore Estate and great BBQ was found near Asheville. The Cabin was well furnished and very comfortable. During a rain storm the cabin was very cozy, nothing like being comfortable and warm with the sound of rain on the roof. The WiFi worked well and kept my children happy. The ample kitchen allowed us to prepare breakfast and dinner. The big screen TV and satellite TV kept us in touch with the rest of the world. The owners are very responsive to any issues. During the previously mentioned rain storm some branches came down in the yard. I made a courtesy notification, and later that day workmen arrived and cleared the yard. I loved the car port and mud room, very nice quality of life amenities. The worst part of our stay was having to leave. We will definitely return."

  • Amazing house, Secluded yet Close, Great Views, Best Amenities Ever

    "Must echo other reviewers in agreeing you just can't go wrong staying at Coal Train House! Immaculately clean; beautiful, unique furnishings and art; best equipped house we've ever rented (and we've rented a lot). Add the gorgeous view, pond, excitement of the daily train, beautiful (cool and clean) river and proximity to town, Penland School and other activities--the perfect vacation spot. Having a host actually meet you, and also the fact they live fairly close--huge plus. No one wants to show up at a rental, ready to relax, and not be able to get in, find the key, punch in a non-working code, or find essential equipment not working. K met us, explained the A/C thermostat, pointed out essential features, and answered our questions. Another plus is the fact that every need or want has been considered in this house--from the grill on the porch, to the very well-equipped kitchen (all basics, including oil, spices, mayo, tea, coffee, syrup, tons of plates, glasses, utensils, napkins, cutting board, toaster, blender--and much, much more that I can't recall). Linens and bedding are comfy and attractive, mattresses great, towels plush. No second hand "vacation home" items here, at all!!! Even the cookware is high end, as is everything else in this home. Thoughtful touches abound, including games, books, music, binoculars, cooler--even breakfast basics upon arrival (pastries, orange juice, coffee, creamer, fridge full of drinks). I can't think of a single thing that we could have possibly needed or wanted. So many extras...As for the home itself--perfect place for two small families or one extended, with multiple porches/balconies and lots of outdoor space to "get away," plus bedrooms on two floors and plenty of bathrooms. Outdoors you can bird watch, gaze at the view of the river and hills, hang out at the pond (hammock and pier down there--feed the fish, read, nap), or walk the railroad tracks about a 1/8 mile upriver to access a small sandy area for river play. Road into property is a smidge steep in places, but excellent condition on our visit, with lots of gravel, no "washboard" areas. As others mentioned, there is one small house on the same property, but it is not close and plenty of vegetation between the two homes (and apparently the home is rarely occupied). You would never know it is there, and you feel quite secluded, especially as the sound of the river is constantly in the background. No mosquitoes at all, despite the pond. Dog paradise, too!"
