We loved staying here. The view is wonderful and the accommodations are lovely. Massive kitchen if you want to cook. The hot tub is great too.

Beautiful and spacious-- Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that the dogs were outspoken. During the fall the squirrels tease them relentlessly running to and fro in front of their enclosure. It also does not help that our high hills have so much granite. We do appreciate your comments regarding this negative and work very hard to make sure each guest has the experience they seek. Had we known your issues were this uncomfortable we would have made different arrangements for the dogs. We did speak with the dogs, and they have assured us that they will be on their best behavior moving forward. Alas, they are shifty.

I would recomend this beautiful area to every one

  • 5 of 5

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.

This place was beautiful!! The pictures do not do it justice.

  • 5 of 5

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.
