Overall our experience at this cabin was very good. The cabin is beautiful, the lay out is great, the beds were comfortable, kitchen was well equipped with everything you would need. It was very clean. There were 10 of us and there was plenty of room for everyone. The basement was a GREAT place for the teens to hang out. The hot tub got to 103 degrees which was great. TVs, DVDs etc all worked great. There is plenty of furniture outside on the deck as well, and the view is really nice. The downside: The wifi is non-existent. One could argue with 10 of us all trying to get on it maybe that was the problem. However, I was there by myself one day due to an injury while everyone else hiked, and I still could not get on it. The BBQ was adequate but a little small for a house that fits 12. As far as the location, be aware that where the map drops the pin on the Home Away website is NOT where the cabin is. It is some glitch I couldn't figure out. When I dropped a pin on my phone it also showed in that location, but when I put in directions it sent me to the actual location, which is Grassy Creek along the border of Virginia. It is still a very convenient location, very close to Grayson Highlands and Creeper Trail. I would suggest arriving when it is light out, as the last road in is a dirt road that winds along and there is a steep, long drop off and no guard rail. We couldn't get the gas fireplace to work, but could have been user error. The limit of two loads of laundry to leave behind is challenging with a house with 10 people, and the limit of 2 bags of garbage left behind if you leave on a Sunday or holiday (due to the garbage places being closed) is also an impossible task with 10 people in the house. Overall, I would definitely recommend this place. We had a great time, and it is truly a beautiful place.
Beautiful view & very nice cabin. We love the area & West Jefferson was a charming town. Cabin was perfect for our 3 couples. Getting to the cabin is a little challenging, but that would not stop us from coming back. Alpen Rose was well stocked on everything that needed during our stay. Would definitely recommend if you need some time away from your hectic schedule.
