  • Relaxing and quiet mountain getaway

    "My husband and I just enjoyed 5 peaceful days at Trout Retreat. The weather was pretty bad, but we made the best of it, and there's nothing better than being trapped indoors under a tin roof in a log cabin if you have to endure 4 days straight of rain! My husband did quite a bit of fishing and once he switched to live bait (you can get it at the hunting store next to the Food Lion up the road), he caught bass, bluegill, chub , but unfortunately no trout). The road down to the property is not for the faint of heart but we both love driving mountain roads and enjoyed every bit of it. We hiked around the area a bit as well. When there is no one occupying the adjacent property, there is a ton of privacy. Even when someone is there, the owners have done a good job of putting privacy screens in the form of trees between the two cabins. The cabin has everything you could possibly want, though I suggest bringing a beach towel or two for around the area or if you want to stretch out in the meadow or along the rocky area by the stream. The wifi was a very nice surprise, so thank you for adding it - without it, you are completely cut off from the outside world (I am not sure whether that is a good or a bad thing). A couple of things to note for others thinking about renting - the cabin sleeps 4, but it would definitely have to be 4 people who really like each other. It's a loft bedroom upstairs so expect to share noise if you have two sleeping below you. It is the perfect size for two people. We didn't bring our dogs, but it is definitely pet friendly and ours would have had a great time there. I had an allergy attack when I used one of the blankets downstairs that was on the couch, so I recommend being aware if you have a lot of pet allergies. The owners keep a separate stash of towels and blankets for pets, so obviously a prior guest didn't pay attention to that and let a dog sleep on a "human" blanket. Like other vacation rentals we've used, there is some element of "housework" that is asked of you, like doing a load of laundry before you leave, taking all trash with you, running the dishwasher and putting them away, etc I prefer not to do any housework on vacation as we have 4 kids and one of the best parts of vacation is no laundry! However, we had an issue with an early morning departure and the manager told us not to worry about it. We managed to get it done anyway. Overall it was a great stay, loved the place, and will definitely be back!"

  • Duplex Cabin, but beautiful!

    "I'll admit that at first we were disappointed that this was a duplex cabin and we would possibly have other people around us for our private getaway. It isn't advertised as a duplex cabin so be careful. We learned the hard way, finding out after I had already requested to book and my payment was in process!!! BUT, we lucked out and didn't have other guests staying below us! There is a cabin right beside us too and someone was there but was not bothersome to us. We really ended up enjoying our stay though! The king size bed was so comfortable, the couch not so much. We weren't bothered by it though! We just got in the bed and watched tv when we were relaxing! Cabin was very clean! Beautiful views out of the picture windows in living room/kitchen area. Hot tub was perfect and had great views of the stars, with the exception of the tree limbs hovering above the hot tub covering up the sky. Not complaining, it was still awesome! I would recommend this cabin for a few couples traveling together but not for just a one couple getaway. We still enjoyed ourselves,but will be looking for a private cabin next time because you can't always luck out like we did."

  • So nice we booked it twice!

    "My husband and I have stayed at this property twice-once with 3 other couples and once by ourselves for our anniversary. It was the perfect house for both scenarios. We loved the huge living room, kitchen, dining room area. It's great for entertaining! The Hounds Ears staff is extremely nice and accommodating. Very safe and beautiful neighborhood."

  • Girls Wilderness Getaway Success!

    "This was a last minute rental for a bachelorette getaway that was a bit off the beaten path. The cabin turned out to be exactly what we were looking for. The drive up the mountain was a little intimidating for 8 Florida girls in a minivan, but if we were able to make it - anyone can. When we arrived we were extremely pleased to find that the cabin was exactly as described on HomeAway. It was well kept, clean, and cozy. It was secluded enough to feel very private, but not too far from the comforts of home. The cabin has a full kitchen - fridge, microwave, oven, toaster, and dishwasher. Although WiFi was available, we had a really hard time getting and staying connected. Our cell reception was also quite limited. Margene did leave a phone number for their internet provider, but we took this opportunity to stay 'unplugged' for the weekend and just enjoy our surroundings. We enjoyed the wonderful views from the patio every morning and evening. The tranquil and relaxing atmosphere was a nice (and welcomed) change of pace from our regular routines. We were even lucky enough to see a few family of deer, chipmunks, rabbits, and hummingbirds. Our group found plenty of things to do within just half an hour to an hour from the cabin: hiking, zip lining, rafting, shopping, and even an amusement park. There is literally something for everyone. We're giving this cabin a 5 star rating because it was everything we wanted and more. Margene was easily reachable whenever we had a question, the cabin was great, and the surrounding areas were awesome. If you're looking for a relaxing getaway, the Owls Roost is the place for you."
