  • Luxury AND Remoteness !!!

    "My husband and I stayed at Winter Start Retreat the first week of October. We were blown away by the beauty of the property tucked away in the Black Mountains. Take the owners' word for it - You need a 4-wheel drive vehicle to SAFELY navigate the two or so miles of stoned road leading up to the property. The switchbacks have steep drop-offs that could do some serious damage, so it's not recommended to approach at night. (We've navigated Colorado mountain roads, so we have a point of reference). The home is nicely decorated, roomy and CLEAN. The kitchen suited our needs. We grilled steaks out on the grill, used the oven to bake potatoes, and cooked up bacon and eggs for breakfast on the stove. All appliances are fairly new and clean and worked well. There is every comfortable amenity you could ask for, except cell phone service. There is a landline for emergencies, so if you're ok with being "off-grid" and more than 30 minutes to cell service, then this is for you. If you're a TV freak, there's only one TV in the main living area and it is small. I must admit, it's been a while since we've just experienced nature without distractions, and it was WONDERFUL. We enjoyed the waterfalls just in back of the property, and had a nice evening fire at the fire pit on the secondary deck above the falls. Very peaceful and serene to watch the fire crackle with the sound of the waterfalls. We spent a couple of days hiking to the recommended points around the property (waterfall further up and mineral mine). Bring your hiking boots. Suggest getting more detailed directions to the mine as there are some forks in the trail not mentioned in the directions. The hot tub felt WONDERFUL after a long day of hiking and the indoor wood stove was cozy. We stayed a total of five days and spent a couple of them driving to nearby towns and to places along the Blue Ridge Parkway (Linville and Crabtree Falls). If you want to see good color in the Fall, recommend waiting until the second week of October. Burnsville doesn't offer much, except for an Ingles Supermarket which is HUGE & WONDERFUL. As the owners advise, you really need to stock up on food and your choice of drink before heading up to the mountain for the first time - nothing between Ingles and the cabin. The hosts were accommodating, knowledgable and informative. We only had the pleasure of meeting Sandy, and she was terrific...she and John rescue dogs, so that's speaks volumes. Highly recommend!!!"

  • Birthday Getaway

    "I had the opportunity to visit this beautiful place the weekend of November 4, 2016 for my birthday. This was my first time visiting the mountains and the Kroon's made sure it was an experience I'd never forget. Mr. Kroon was generous enough to take me on a tour through the mountains so that I could see how beautiful they really were. I will definitely be returning with my family in the near furture."

  • 2nd Time Staying!!

    "These last 9 days have been awesome, beautiful, peaceful and relaxing! I love the sounds of nature. Only on the weekend did we hear a four wheeler or two go up the property near us. The chipmunks and birds drove one of our dogs nuts! She thinks she's a hunting dog but far from it. I brought my on pans to cook eggs and bacon in and some plastic storage bowls but other than that everything else is here. You need your paper products, laundry detergent, dish detergent, their is no dishwasher but yourself. That was even nice too. I cooked all three meals each day. I only do this on vacation, after working at home I'm ready to go out and eat and go to bed. Perfect weather this time of year 70's/50's. A few windows will open or have screens. One box fan. I would bring at least two more for the hotter months. I love the screen door on the front and wish they had one for the back door. Love the cool clean mountain air. I did bring a blow up queen mattress to put behind the futon in the living room. The dogs have to sleep with me. The bed at the house is plush and very comfortable and my husband slept well by himself! I love this area lots to see and do. The hot tub just received a new cover while we were here. Nice having the Internet, our Verizon cell phones didn't work at the house but did in downtown of Burnsville. The creeks and rivers are beautiful and plentious are this are. Grilling and relaxing is our kind of vacation. If you are looking for excitement like crowds and noise don't stay here. This is a place to rest away from it all! The simpler things in life are to be treasured. We will hopefully return in the winter of 2017. Thanks Brad & Erin!"

  • SIMPLY THE BEST

    "The NuWray Inn is THE BEST place for family or group gatherings! Our family rented the whole Inn for a family gathering and everyone loved it! The Innkeepers are cordial, welcoming and accommodating. This Inn is special in that all bedrooms are well-appointed and have a private bathroom. Our elderly family members found that the two handicap-accessible rooms were beautiful and met their needs. Cooking meals and eating together is big with our family, and this Inn is perfect for that. In the evenings, the dining room easily became a gathering place and game center that everyone enjoyed. Playing croquet and grilling steaks in the back yard was fun. The long row of rocking chairs on the front porch was everyone’s favorite place for our large family to talk with each other and enjoy each other and this beautiful Inn."
