Property was wonderful.The owner was awesome. Had a few glitches on check in ie I emptied garbage in the kitchen and a bit of a scramble to get the alarm turned off but the place...awesome....
The house was beautiful. It was decorated so nicely, very clean and a really cool location. The only cons were that there were cameras, which we were not informed of before our arrival, and we were not able to raise the heat higher than 66°. When we got in touch with our point of contact they insured us that it would be raised remotely but it never was unfortunately.
A great house in a great location!
Such a beautiful home. Our family of eight settled in quite nicely and very comfortably. The home is fully equipped. All you need to do is pack your suitcase, food and beverages and relax. You feel Like you are in the clouds quite literally and the view is wonderful. The location is ideal. It is private yet a quick drive to restaurants, skiing and other activities. I highly recommend this beauty!
The cabin construction details are wonderful. Great stay. If the weather is bad be aware it will be difficult to get to the cabin due to the roads. Only ski in ski out if lots of snow present but it’s a short walk to the top of the slopes where you can ski down. Would definitely recommend due to the beauty of the cabin and views.
Great place; poor service
We loved the location and the property itself. Really beautiful, clean and spacious, with gorgeous furnishings and plentiful, very nice bathrooms and showers. It included the most amazing kitchen we have ever seen, which was especially great because we have several cooks in the family and we prepared all our meals onsite. It was truly a wonderful gourmet kitchen, amply stocked with all the utensils and appliances we needed, including a wonderful built-in coffee maker that was a luxurious, complete joy. The lodge was still decorated for Christmas when we arrived (Dec. 26) and it was so nice to have the lights and Christmas tree, since we celebrated a 'second Christmas' with our out-of-town children and grand-children who joined us. We loved sledding (a little) and using the fire pit. The ski slope on which the house is situated was not open; the first day we were there, there was still some snow, enough for the aforementioned sledding, but the temperatures were mild and heavy rains came in that evening and washed away all the snow. And that was when we discovered that this lovely log cabin lodge had multiple leaks around windows and doors, with water pooling on the main floor master bedroom floor and the lower level bunk room, as well as dripping from the ceiling in the upper west bedroom. We called the caretaker multiple times, leaving messages each time, and emailed several times, but no one ever responded (we had also called earlier because they had left incorrect wifi password information, but we figured that out). It was not a life-threatening problem, luckily, just a worrisome inconvenience, and we thought they would want to come check it out while it was raining so they could find the problem, which would not be obvious when the weather was dry. Additionally, the final morning we were there the heat totally stopped working. Again we called and emailed, and again no response. It was not bitterly cold, and only a few hours until we checked out, but this lack of attention to our inquiries left us wondering what would happen if we had a real problem. We will most likely not stay again, as much as we loved the lodge, because we saw that any problems or concerns would go unaddressed.
Unforgettable White Christmas Vacation in the mountains if North Carolina
When we arrived to the top of the mountain, and reached our destination we saw this gorgeous wood-cabin right next to us. As we drove in through the snowy driveway we watched in awe all the details it had on the outside. But nothing would prepare us to what happened next. As we typed the code to enter the house 10 times due to the chill of winter we open the door to a luxurious dark cherry wooden floor and a view to die for. As we walked in the cabin all we could do was take it in as we had never been welcomed by such amenities. Large Curved LED TV Smart-TV with Cable and other cool features, a chimney that was as big and tall as the house itself, and a sofa so soft and comfortable you could even use it to sleep. The Dining table as long as it was beautiful, but the kitchen... oh, the Kitchen! It was probably one of the best places in the house. Glorious granite tops adorned every corner and the soft-close cabinets complimented the flow of everything. Two sinks and an Espresso Coffee Machine that was filled with coffee beans and water already set so at the push of a button you'd get a perfect espresso shot... priceless! The fridge was wider than a normal house fridge which was good because we brought a lot of items. The basement had 2 bunk-beds great for the 4 kids staying with us. The master bedroom was ginormous, with a gorgeous bathroom and space to spare. Both rooms upstairs had great space and beautiful bathrooms to complement the rest of the cabin and views that look like postcards.
Something very important that I have to mention and it made our stay all the more special, when we came in the cabin for the first time, there was a completely lit and decorated Christmas Tree. That was a special note that hit high in our list of "OH YEAH!"
The good and bad about this location was that there was no phone signal! However, there was Wi-Fi in the house so rejoice, you will stay connected. We also had washer and dryer, coat hangers, small shovel and rake, vacuum and broom so we never did miss any of the essentials to try and keep the house clean while staying there. The prices were very reasonable considering the location we were at, the quality of the cabin and the amount of amenities you get for the money and it is money well spent, indeed.
Do I recommend this wooden cabin for a family vacation? Hum? That would be a sure "OH YEAH!" Go for it. I recommend this for family, business, honeymoon, anniversary, quick escape. I LOVED IT!!!
