Recent Mars Hill reviews

  • Very comfortable just like home

    "We loved staying at this property. Nancy and Jose are excellent hosts. Couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. Came up to Mars Hill to escape the warm weather and to get a glimpse of the fall colors. We will be back soon. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable."

  • Lovely

    "Steve was a gracious host and extremely attentive! He even let our kids play with Lobo, their pet wolf! Accommodations were just what we were looking for-comfy and spacious, with plenty of outdoors to explore! Came up with several family friends for a ski weekend and definitely plan to come back!"

  • A quaint little getaway in the NC mountains

    "We rented this property to celebrate Christmas as a family, including my wife, kids, and parents. It turned out to be a great choice! The cabin is more spacious than it appears on the website. The basement has an entire bedroom, 2 bathrooms, and games and TVs, so my parents were able to treat it as a separate apartment when necessary, and my kids had fun playing pool and foosball. Upstairs, we found everything we needed. The kitchen was reasonably stocked, the fireplace worked well, and there were plenty of beds, couches, etc. There are multiple washer/dryers for laundry, an abundance of bathrooms, etc. We particularly liked the huge dining room table. We had several meals all together and also worked on several puzzles, crafts, etc. There are literally TVs in every room, so no shortage of entertainment. As for the view, I'm sure it would have been great if the weather had cooperated. It was cloudy and rainy for our entire stay, so we didn't see much of anything besides clouds. But we were certainly high enough to imagine some great skylines. One of my favorite finds was a 2-mile single-track trail that connects to the Appalachian trail. This just about 1/2 mile from the cabin. A few considerations for potential guests: Location - The cabin is at the top of a 2-mile stretch of very steep, narrow road. It ends at a VERY steep driveway up to the cabin. Having now been, I wouldn't even consider driving to this cabin in winter time without a 4-wheel drive vehicle. And in icey or snow conditions, I still might not try it. Even with good traction, the constant climbing pushed our poor loaded-down mini-van to the limit. Also, the closest grocery store is almost 30 minutes away. So consider buying groceries on the way, or plan enough time after arrival. Internet - The wifi was easy to connect to and worked well enough, but it was pretty slow and spotty compared to what most of us are used to. I wouldn't be able to work remotely from this location, for example. Don't come for the pool table - It was fun for the kids, but needs to be resurfaced, balanced, and all the queues need to be repaired. Directions - The owners provided specific directions for the last couple miles of the drive. We chose to rely on our GPS, which was a mistake. It took us on a very roundabout path through a lot of mud. Follow the directions provided :) Overall, this property wasn't perfect but exceeded my expectations."

  • This property was very clean and had everything we needed and more!

    "We had a great stay! This home was beautifully furnished and well equipped. The beds were extremely comfortable! Deer were everywhere around this property. We went skiing at Wolf Ridge a couple of times. I recommend going early in the day for good slope conditions. We drove the Blue Ridge...beautiful views! On the way home, we went to the Biltmore Estate, a must see. I would highly recommend this home and will definitely be coming back!"
