  • Great High Ground end of Road Property with Over Views

    "Wonderful property that is near the end of the road (2 other properties up hill – one within 100’ of the back of the home and the other across the road). It has 2 downstairs bedrooms and one upstairs master. If you are a Jacuzzi tub sort, the master has one. The place is pet friendly and even has a small fenced in area in the back of the home. The place has most of the basics and all in all is a great place to unwind. Things to be aware of: - Internet • The internet is a satellite service. Weather can impact it. Also, the owners do not want you to stream or have a great deal of traffic on it as their plan is a pay for GB service. If you are looking to use Vudu, Hulu or stream your movies, this could result in extra charges for you. • I could not get the internet to connect to a cloud based sharepoint service nor could I get it to connect to Cnn.Com or, if I could, I could not select one of the pages. I benchmarked the speed and the download ranged between 2-4 mbps and upload was t 0.10 – 0.14 mbps. - No AC – Not that you need it – the temp ran between 67-74 indoors while we visited. If this is a concern for you, just be aware. - Neighbors are close (back porch to back porch is about 100’). Yes it is quiet and that is due to the neighbors being very considerate. When they talk or run a vacuum, you can hear it and the home is close to the screen porch in the back. (Our luck is we always have someone running a circular saw at any property we visit and this trip was no exception but work and maintenance must be done!). To be clear, it was very tranquil and quiet. The bugs at night make more noise than anything! - There are two entrances to the home. The first when you see the home number and then the next left after. The first has big wheel ruts in it right now and need to be graded. I recommend using the uphill drive entrance. NOTE: if you have a standard car the uphill entrance does have a channel that water has carved due to drainage. You will want to approach it at an angle. (see next note). We have a Chrysler 200 and got stuck in the first entrance and almost grounded in the uphill entrance. If the owner regrades the drive, this won’t be an issue. - Higher clearance or 4wd/Awd vehicles are better suited for accessing this property. Overall: Was just what we needed - quiet and relaxing."

  • Happy Thanksgiving

    "We stayed here during our "destination" Thanksgiving and everything turned out perfectly. The house , the deck and the grounds were clean and neat. The kitchen is well furnished in terms of dishes (but you need a new can opener that one's on its last turn). The home is warm and cozy and there are plenty of extra blankets. Despite being late fall we spent a lot of time in the hot tub, or cuddled in blankets drinking coffee on the deck. We took a very short drive to Nantahala Nat forest area and went hiking as well. There is a chiminea as well for your use. We had a glitch with the wi-fi, but sent a text and the owner was on it, and had the solution in no time. They only drawback was that someone left food in the drain and we fought fruit flies. . .arrgh! However we are hoping to stay again early summer. This was well worth the $$ and the drive."

  • Beautiful, cozy, immaculate chalet

    "I will agree with the glowing reviews of Jean-Jacques' wonderful retreat. We found it to be immaculately clean (yay!!) and cozy with beautiful craftsmanship in all the finishings. I took pictures to use as inspiration for a future remodel! So nice to have towels, linens, soaps and paper goods provided. Although my husband's conference was at the Grove Park Inn where most attendees stayed, we preferred something more private with a kitchen and access to nature and this place fit the bill beautifully. It was a bonus that we could bring our pooch with us! And the bonus that I didn't anticipate was the sighting of a mama bear with 3 cubs in tow crossing a nearby road one morning while out on a walk! Tips for future visitors--be sure to find out from Jean-Jacques where to pick up the trails because it is not obvious; if you want to dine nearby I highly recommend the Copper Crown; and if you're thirsty, check out Highland Brewery, also not far away."

  • Mountain side home Spectacular Views!

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Knob View Retreat. The house is situated on spectacular mountain side with exceptional views. We woke to sounds of nature and dined under the stars on the spacious 2 level decks. The house is in impeccable condition. We loved that. The roads are well maintained , partially paved for your smooth arrival to paradise. We would recommend this home to anyone looking for relaxation and adventure in the surrounding areas. Knob view Retreat didn't leave us wanting for anything but another weeks stay."
