  • The Perfect Setting For a Weekend Away

    "I cannot write enough positive things about our amazing weekend at Almost Heaven. It was just the perfect setting for our girls getaway weekend--- so beautiful and peaceful. That VIEW! We couldn't get over it. It will take your breath away every time. Annette was SO wonderful in her communication, clear directions, and suggestions of things to see and do in the area. It is an intense (but kind of fun!) drive up the mountain roads to the home, but certainly doable, even though all of us just had front-wheel drive. Definitely recommend trying to get there in daylight if you can -- it's easier to find! But also know that the trek up the mountain is worth it for that view! Also definitely recommend doing your grocery shopping in your hometown or before you get the cabin and packing a cooler --- bring food and just stay put at the cabin. It would be quite a journey to have to "run to the store" for a small thing. We did get to explore Black Mountain for lunch (about 20-25 min drive) and enjoyed that! Also appreciated the suggested to check out Standing Rock Falls within the Gateway Mountain premises; it was lovely! The home was so accommodating and comfortable. We had 8 women staying, and all had a bed spot and plenty of space! We ate every meal and drank coffee/wine out on the amazing back deck. We watched the sunset and watch storms roll by. Once night came, we saw more stars than us city dwellers ever get to see--even some shooting stars! To say we had a great time is kind of an understatement. It was kind of perfect! .My only wish is that we could have stayed longer!!! Trying to see if I can now get my extended family to take a trip up to the mountains next year...might have to use this home again:) A beautiful rental, and one of the best VRBO home's I've ever stayed in. Highly recommend! Thank you to the Morgans for sharing their home!"

  • Very nice, clean, and well equipped

    "Our family had a wonderful time staying here. The cabin was great and the Cane river is just at the end of the road where you can fish and swim and even swing from a rope into the river. Burnsville is a great little town with some cool shops. The Blind Squirrel is a legit restaurant and brewery. The coffee shop in town, Appalachian Java, makes a killer iced Americano. The Carolina Hemlocks are about 30 minutes away where you can jump off rocks into a cold natural swimming hole or tube down the river. We spent a whole day there picnicking and swimming. We drove about an hour and half southwest and enjoyed some amazing swimming holes and waterfalls. Loved it."

  • Girls Weekend

    "My girlfriends and I had a wonderful time last weekend at Mountain Laurel Lookout. The photos don't do the cabin and it's amazing views justice! There was plenty of room for 7 girls to get ready and sleep comfortably. We spent our evenings sipping wine while watching the sunset and our mornings drinking coffee on the porch just taking in the view. The owners were responsive and I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking to get away to the mountains for a long weekend. We will definitely be back!"

  • Dad

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: It was great! Just what we wanted. Lots of room for 10 family members to spread out. Enjoyed game room and brought out door games for the large lawn area. Bathroom upstairs did leak into lower level bedroom despite following instructions. Appears more caulking around top of tub by shower curtain would work. Bug population in the cabin was pretty significant: millipeeds, centipeeds, small black flying insects in basement. But we knew we were going to an isolated location and the bugs were there long before we were! Loved hearing the trains periodically! Overall a great cabin in the mountains experience."
