Beautiful and spacious-- Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

with all the good reviews to be read, I knew we would enjoy our stay. But the reviews just don't do the property justice. The view is spectacular, the space is unusual and awesome. There is privacy, but with a feel that you are visiting family who are just next door. Extremely accommodating and friendly was Howard, and the place was decorated AMAZINGLY. No AT&T cell service in the area to be had, so have a contingency plan if you need to make phone calls while here! We are already daydreaming about coming back!

Fabulous long weekend at Blue Heron Retreat

Thank you so much Carla & Howard! We had a lovely, relaxing weekend celebrating our 15th anniversary. We were able to make delicious meals in the kitchen and using the gas grill and we enjoyed just relaxing and watching movies. The hot tub was our favorite! We've stayed at several VRBO cabins and houses and this was by far the nicest hot tub. We look forward to returning for soon!

Very nice, very relaxing get away!

Carla and Howard's cabin is wonderful. The inside is spacious and comfortable, and the outside has beautiful views. We absolutely took advantage of the fresh eggs, milk, and OJ! As of my writing this, there is no picture of the hot tub, but I can assure you, there is one, and it's very relaxing to sit in day or night and take in the view. The main house that Carla and Howard live in is situated very close to the guest cabin, but they are as unobtrusive or interactive as you would like. If this sounds good to you, then do yourself a favor and stay here!

I'd really give the stay 4.5 stars if I could, but I took one star off because, while there were certainly fantastic moments of private, peace and quiet, the close proximity of the main house and its sometimes very "barky" dogs occasionally impinged on our goal of quiet solitude. We love dogs, and we do not blame them for barking at whatever they happened to see, hear, or smell through their fenced enclosure, but it could become excessive at times, and their relatively close proximity meant enduring it until they settled down or having to go inside for quiet.

I would recomend this beautiful area to every one

The home was amazing. Every comfort of home you could possibly want . lots to explore. Lots to embrace and to be able to remember what life is really here for. The owners were the best. We could have hung out under the stars with them but they let us alone and do our thing . stunning views and just the best ever.

We have stayed in several vacation rentals and this one is by far the nicest one. Super clean and beautifully decorated. The view is awesome. Quiet and peaceful. And the Khouris are very nice people. We would definitely stay again.

Wonderful experience

Verified Stay

M;y friend and I stayed 3 nights at this property and it was quiet, peaceful and beautiful. The only thing we missed was a washer/dryer but since our stay was brief, it was not an issue. The area is so scenic and the amenities were plentiful. We loved the fresh chicken eggs, milk, juice and condiments left in the fridge for our use. Thank you, Carla and Howard. We will see you again.
