"My family and I booked Parkway Peek in June of 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed our magical experience in the mountains of North Carolina. The cabin had everything we needed to fully experience the attractions both distant a close by. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking meals with a dining room table that would accommodate a large family. The bedrooms had comfortable beds and bathrooms were clean and functional. Wall unit A/C’s and wood stoves would accommodate visitors all season and the views from the deck were worth the price alone. Outside, a large grill came in handy and smores beside the fire pit were great after long days of hiking.
Speaking of outdoor attractions, Parkway Peek is strategically located close to amazing scenic locations that are all within a reasonable car ride away. We visited Linville Falls, Grandfather Mountain, Craggy Gardens, and Linville Caverns all conveniently located off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Further away but worth the trip, the Wilson Creek area provided amazing opportunities for hiking, fishing, camping, or dipping a toe in a cool mountain stream. We also made several trips to Spruce Pine, which is very close by, for pizza, groceries, and supplies. In addition, a journey to Penland School of Crafts made for a day of artistic wonder and was one of our most memorable experiences of the whole vacation.
Finally, I wanted to express my gratitude to Lesli and her family, the owners of Parkway Peek, for being such great hosts. In the weeks leading up to the trip, Lesli provided us via email with tons of information about local events and attractions. The night we arrived, the cabin was very clean and well equipped, which was reassuring after a long car trip. In addition, the owners provided a three ring binder filled with a multitude of maps and information that proved invaluable as we planned our week of adventure. In no time, the cabin almost seemed like a second home to us, and we didn’t want to leave in the end!
Thanks for a wonderful experience!
The Matherne Family"
