The Privacy- and the spectacular views! beautiful area
Private, no one across from you- but the Mountain and wildlife
House was better than the on line pictures, bedrooms are spacious, grounds are gorgeous, setting is picture perfect, house has a very comfortable feel to it; furnishings and items provided by the host were more than expected, and much better than you would find in a competing hotel or motel setting. For our family this house was five stars ... Thank you !
Three couples and pooches hung here for a crisp November weekend. Air was crisp, nights were spectacular and bonds of friendship bolstered over fire, conservation, cooking and commiserating. Lovely place. We hope to return and repeat...
Humans and Canines really enjoyed everything about the property and had a great time. We had a boat delivered and picked up at the dock. It was a very smart rental process with all the information you could need about the home, the area attractions etc. The house and lake are beautiful. Highly recommend.
We had a wonderful time at this beautiful home. This property is exactly the way the site says it is. Running around in the backyard was perfect for our dog Daisy. The docks, the use of canoes were so easily accessible. The house was immaculate and well taken care of. We enjoyed the quietness of late October while playing scrabble in the screened porch, grilling nightly, making breakfast every morning in the well equipped kitchen and just relaxing and fishing down at the lake. The hot tub was clean and set at the right temperature for our early morning dip. It was a big house for just the two of us and our dog, but it was the perfect getaway (just not long enough). It was lady bug mating season, so we were greeted by hundreds of lady bugs and one flew in my ear and came out 45 minutes later. I think that means I'll have good luck for quite some time. Thanks again Leslie, Cheers to you! Bill, Brittany & Daisy, Richmond, VA
We love this place and hope to make it an annual trip. We used to go to the Outer Banks but find this to be more relaxing and just as convenient from Richmond. It is perfect for our K9 heavy family. New fire pit was perfect for a S'mores night. The Kitchen is great for anyone looking to cook a gourmet meal for the family. Well stocked with everything you should need.
We have yet to try the Hot tub. Maybe next time. Thanks again for having us and the 'Kids'
We arrived at the property on the day of Hurricane Matthew before check in time. The staff was still there cleaning but they were nice enough let us sit in the basement while they finished. At this point in time, no one made us aware that arriving early would cancel some of the perks that the cabin provided, such as a working fire place. This had to be cancelled due to our early arrival. We would have easily gone to a restaurant to wait had we'd known.
The cabin and scenery were beautiful. Everything was well maintained and clean. We had a wonderful time using the outside fire pit, the numerous porches and enjoyment of the cabin retreat feel.
Our only complaint, being new to the area and never having used the cabin before, was working with the cabin owner. The information we were sent and the book inside the house had many discrepancies along with fees we were unsure of, for example - the use of the hot tub - which we didn't use due to those fees and not wanting to make anymore phone calls. Simple questions such as, are the twin beds long or regular, were returned with answers that made us feel like we were complaining. We also called out of respect to the owner and property about what appeared to be a slight leak in the pipes below the sink. Our call was not "welcomed" as it states they are in the book. Our final call, again out of respect and not wanting to do anything that would damage the property, was about the use of the fire places in the home. Being unaware at the time that this had been cancelled due to our early arrival - again - our call was not welcomed but more of an annoyance. We made no more phone calls.
Thank you to HomeAway for providing such a nice cabin but it is very doubtful we will stay here again due to the owner (our reasoning for the 3 stars). However, we'd still recommend this cabin to others in hopes customer service would be more welcome to the next guests.
We wish the owner and her family well wishes and prayers during what may have been a difficult time.
This is our 4th stay at Log Cabin Retreat. If you are looking for peace and relaxation than look no further. The view is breath taking and the dogs love the big fenced in yard. The home is equipped with everything you could possibly need. We will be back next Fall.
