Nice Weekend Getaway
You get exactly what you see from the pictures! The interior is done nicely, especially the kitchen. Brand new cutlery and utensils. The hot tub is inviting. The gas fireplace works great. We grilled steaks and corn on the grill. It was big enough for 2 large ribeyes and 4 ears of corn, just for the passionate grillers' reference! This is such a lovely area of North Carolina, we have been several times. The DuPont Forrest is close by for a day trip, or even a half day trip. Hooker Falls is pretty. Overall, we were very satisfied with our weekend and the accommodations! Thank you, David!
Nice cottage - needs a thorough cleaning
The cottage was in a wonderful, quiet, and private location. There were plenty of supplies inside. The hot tub was great!! The master bed is super comfortable! You can tell the cabin is well taken care of - but the owners need to find a new cleaning service:
There were food particles on some of the cooking utensils in the container on the counter, dead gnats all over the ceiling in the bathroom and clumps of dog hair on the floor beside one of the chairs (some dog hair is expected because it is a pet-friendly place but these were clumps missed by sweeping through several different guests). I used a paper towel to wipe up a few drops of water on the kitchen floor after cleaning some dishes and the paper towel was black - you could tell that it had not been thoroughly cleaned/mopped in a while.
We did not call the owners regarding the cleaning (I am sure they would’ve handled it quickly) - we did not plan on using any cooking utensils anyway and just wore shoes throughout the stay. Any cleaning they would’ve done would have been too late in our opinions and we did not spend much time in the cottage - mostly just to sleep.
Overall the cabin is nice but I would recommend improving the cleaning process.
Very nice location and we will be coming back. Loved it!
Really enjoyed our stay at this clean relaxing property which was well stocked with everything we needed. I would definitely come again.
Just as described, and we enjoyed it immensely! Very clean - meticulous!!! Lovely setting... We will return!
Awesome cabin by the creek
I don't know where to start first. The porch being just feet away from the creek was relaxing and peaceful. The cabin was very clean, stocked and organized. Its has everything you'd need. Also, it is a great location for going to Dupont.
