Very Nice Place!
Lots of space and well stocked kitchen. Plenty of towels and blankets. Beautiful setting and very quiet. No neoghbors close by so we were anle to let the dog off leash. Bring a thick pad if you're using the pullout bed. It was very uncomfortable. Other beds were fine. TV in the living room had Netflix which was great! WiFi wa's good too.
My family and I are extremely happy with the location, beautiful scenery. We were able to use the paddle boats, gym and pool walking distance from house.The trails led to various waterfalls which to include crossing the river. Amazing time! We saw the fruit trees and multiple turkeys which my daughter was blown away by.
Rented this house for an anniversary and brought a marinated steak to grill the first night. No grill! The grill listed under amenities was at the community club house that is not within walking distance. Direct TV listed, not Direct TV - Roku. An ottoman shown in photos of living room was not there. In four days we never saw an orchard as advertised. The house is apparently undergoing some kind of renovation, not yet completed. Toilet paper holder falling out of wall, top of toilet cracked. No exhaust fan above stove, just a hole in the wall with a wire in it. No closet in master bedroom.
There is a single mattress on the landing to upstairs!? Only A/C in the house is a loud hotel room unit in the kitchen. Picture hangers on walls with no pictures. Ice maker in fridge not working. A landscape architect may have loved this site, but it's hard to believe an architect had much to do with designing this house. I am eternally grateful for my wife who still loves me after making her spend 4 nights in this place. She said I was 1 & 1 arranging trips, our honeymoon in Bermuda 30 years ago and this trip. She will handle all VRBO rentals from now on.
This property is as it appears in the photographs and written description. This guest could have saved himself a lot of time and negativity by reading the VRBO listing and looking at the pictures. We operate a successful VRBO home which has been given many 5 star ratings by the wonderful guests we have had. There is nothing false or misleading in the description or photographs of our home and property, yet this guest made numerous false claims about the property and the description of the property and its amenities. Our VRBO listing plainly states that there is a grill located a short walk away (2-3 minutes) at the community clubhouse. In no way have we implied that there is a grill at the house. The guest was obviously upset about the location of the grill being at the clubhouse and became vindictive and deceptively critical of our home. His review very much misrepresents our property as can be seen by our other guest reviews and photos of our property. Our home was designed by a professional architect which most people can recognize from the photographs and special care was taken to make it as green as possible. Our orchard has 50 fruit trees which are easily identified by the fencing around them to protect them from deer. Both bedrooms have ample closet space and the out of the way single bed on the upstairs loft / landing is a bonus surprise retreat for children. Because we do not stay at this house full time, we have chosen to use ice trays instead of an ice maker which can create a risk of water damage to the house. We do have Direct TV, Roku TV and Netflix, but this guest may not have been familiar with how to operate the remotes. If any guest ever has a question we provide our personal phone numbers and the numbers of our property manager and repairman once they book. This guest did have one legitimate concern about the loosened torlet paper holder. Either he or the guest before him must have used the handle as an aid to pull up with which loosened the support. As soon as we became aware of the problem, we replaced it , and the guest could have had this done while he was there by calling me or my repairman (Both of our numbers were available to him once he booked).
We look forward to hosting guests who appreciate the natural beauty of our home and community as accurately represented in pictures and writing and are more than willing to answer any questions.
Our family stayed for 2 weeks to visit family in Boone and absolutely loved it! We hiked. We swam. We enjoyed our adventures in Boone and in the surrounding communities. We wish we could have stayed longer! The house was perfect for our family of 5. Very clean and absolutely loved sitting on the porch enjoying sunrises to thunderstorms. Hope to get back someday. Thanks George for making your property available :)
House was great. Was disappointed the washer and dryer were out of order. Bugs inside were a bit of an issue. But the stay was very peaceful and ammenties were nice.
I am glad you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry the washer gave out, and we have now replaced it. Please, only open windows with screens in them, particularly when it is dark outside because moths will be attracked to the light and come in the window.
Felt Like Home
I took my family and up to the mountains for Christmas and this house was absolutely perfect. It's location was perfect for family time and relaxation. The home had everything we needed with a huge open kitchen to prepare our feasts and a great porch to enjoy the wildlife (we actually had deer come into the yard to eat), scenery, and chilly nights. The only minor snag we had was the power in the bathroom went out the first night we were but was immediately fixed. Our family couldn't ask for a better trip as everything is within 30-45 minutes of this house from Boone, Blowing Rock, Blue Ridge Parkway, and West Jefferson. Only thing I encourage future guest is just plan on having a great relaxing trip and plan accordingly for food as the closest grocery stores a 20 minute trip up the mountain but the ride is absolutely gorgeous. George the owner was awesome, very helpful, and honest.
