  • PEACEFUL, SECLUDED AND QUIET…AND SOME THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW

    "This cabin in the woods is secluded, quiet and cozy. The owner has done a nice job of upgrading and modernizing with flat screen TVs, a decent number of channels, strong WiFi, upgraded kitchen, new appliances (including washer/dryer) and a nicely remodeled loft area which serves as a second bedroom. The location is great, almost equidistant to Boone, Blowing Rock and Banner Elk. Nearby are hiking trails, proximity to the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Julian Price Park and Bass Lake. The kitchen is well equipped and we appreciated the owner making available many of the basics that you forget about bringing. The owner was very responsive and easy to work with. The house is advertised as “pet friendly,” and we can attest to that by some dog hairs found here and there throughout the house. Whether this feature is attractive to you depends, obviously, on whether or not you want to bring a pet along. So there are many good features of this house, but there are some things to be aware of. As mentioned, the owner has done a nice job of modernizing, but it is an older house, and along with that comes conditions that typically affect aging properties: dripping faucets, small bathrooms with limited counter space, no vent fans, and a musty odor in the back bedroom if the house is closed up. There is no central air conditioning. There is a window unit that is adequate for the living room and dining area, but not sufficient to cool the bedrooms. For the most part, this is not a problem because of the cool mountain temperatures and the shaded location of the house. But it can get humid in the area and if you like sleeping in really cold bedrooms, this could be an issue Other things you need to know: the location is great, BUT, the house is located off a gravel road about 1-2 miles from the nearest paved road. It is a good gravel road, but it is still winding and unpaved which may or may not bother you. Also, endeavor to arrive at the house before sunset, because, although the directions are good, the house is not particularly easy to find. So what’s the bottom line? If you want a modern, glitzy property with magnificent vistas, look elsewhere. If you want a private, secluded, comfortable and quiet cabin in the woods, this is the place for you."

  • Very relaxing and very beautiful

    "We stayed at the Hammond's beautiful mountain home for one week. It was quite beautiful and everything for which we could have asked. Sitting on the deck listening to the stream bubbling down the mountain, trees, birds and NATURE was worth it just for that alone. I recommend this vacation home MOST highly. We will definitely be back!!"

  • Beautiful house

    "This was a beautifully decorated house that truly allowed our family of 6 to spread out and yet spend quality time together. Our weather was lousy (foggy, warm and raining) but there were enough times to scoot out for short periods and enjoy the walks around the area, and there was plenty to do inside to keep us busy. Plenty of space and the outdoors was just amazing. The few times we had sunny clear weather, the view was amazing, I mean amazing. Host was helpful and quick to respond. Boone and Blowing Rock were only 10-15 minutes away which was fantastic. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat if it is still available next holiday!"

  • Cottage up the hill

    "We just spent almost a month at this wonderful cottage up the hill. It is perfect for getting away from everything but close enough to Boone and Blowing Rock for anything you need. Our granddaughters got up close with two baby deer and their mother in the front yard. And a rabbit came to visit every night. And Pickles the friendly dog came to visit a few times. The house is nicely furnished with everything you need to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Watching the sun set each evening was an added bonus. We loved the weather-perfect for tennis every day. Dorie, the owner, was most helpful with info we needed. Over all, a wonderful stay in the little cottage up the hill!!"
