  • Amazing house, Secluded yet Close, Great Views, Best Amenities Ever

    "Must echo other reviewers in agreeing you just can't go wrong staying at Coal Train House! Immaculately clean; beautiful, unique furnishings and art; best equipped house we've ever rented (and we've rented a lot). Add the gorgeous view, pond, excitement of the daily train, beautiful (cool and clean) river and proximity to town, Penland School and other activities--the perfect vacation spot. Having a host actually meet you, and also the fact they live fairly close--huge plus. No one wants to show up at a rental, ready to relax, and not be able to get in, find the key, punch in a non-working code, or find essential equipment not working. K met us, explained the A/C thermostat, pointed out essential features, and answered our questions. Another plus is the fact that every need or want has been considered in this house--from the grill on the porch, to the very well-equipped kitchen (all basics, including oil, spices, mayo, tea, coffee, syrup, tons of plates, glasses, utensils, napkins, cutting board, toaster, blender--and much, much more that I can't recall). Linens and bedding are comfy and attractive, mattresses great, towels plush. No second hand "vacation home" items here, at all!!! Even the cookware is high end, as is everything else in this home. Thoughtful touches abound, including games, books, music, binoculars, cooler--even breakfast basics upon arrival (pastries, orange juice, coffee, creamer, fridge full of drinks). I can't think of a single thing that we could have possibly needed or wanted. So many extras...As for the home itself--perfect place for two small families or one extended, with multiple porches/balconies and lots of outdoor space to "get away," plus bedrooms on two floors and plenty of bathrooms. Outdoors you can bird watch, gaze at the view of the river and hills, hang out at the pond (hammock and pier down there--feed the fish, read, nap), or walk the railroad tracks about a 1/8 mile upriver to access a small sandy area for river play. Road into property is a smidge steep in places, but excellent condition on our visit, with lots of gravel, no "washboard" areas. As others mentioned, there is one small house on the same property, but it is not close and plenty of vegetation between the two homes (and apparently the home is rarely occupied). You would never know it is there, and you feel quite secluded, especially as the sound of the river is constantly in the background. No mosquitoes at all, despite the pond. Dog paradise, too!"

  • Loved it!

    "We had an amazing weekend at this home. It is a beautiful setting and the interior of the house is perfect for 2 families. There are 2 master suites and a downstairs space for the kids. The view is spectacular and it is close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Linville Falls and Cavern. There is a Super WalMart right down the road too."

  • Fall in North Carolina

    "Enjoyed the beautiful location and large front porch for relaxing and reading. Very close to the excellent Mt Mitchell golf course. Fully furnished kitchen and everything we needed. Only drawback for us was an uncomfortable couch since it was the type which could also be made into a bed. No other relaxing place to sit inside unless using a rocking chair or kitchen chair."

  • Perfect mountain getaway with genuine hospitality

    "We booked this last minute due to a hurricane evacuation. What a blessing we received!! This house was exactly what we needed... cozy, clean, and stunning views. If the house and view weren't enough, Kristin helped my family find another place to stay when our town was still closed. She called and made connections so we had somewhere else to stay without hesitation. The house was perfect for us and our 2 dogs!! We felt at home the minute we walked in. I am very grateful for the unbelievable hospitality Kristin showed us. I can't wait to return!!"
