Great Stay In the Country
Rental was great for spending Christmas together as a family. We did lots of cooking in the kitchen and games on the large dining table. The back TV room was a great place for our kids to watch TV and we set up all of our gifts there. The TV and electronics could be upgraded, but it was nice enough and we didn't watch a ton of TV. The fireplace in the back room doesn't seem to exhaust properly so it filled the room with smoke smell and was uncomfortable on the eyes so we only did one fire in fireplace. Recommend a chimney sweep. Cast iron fire place in dining room was fine. We went for multiple hikes along the creek and drove into Ashville a couple of times. Had a very good time.
This is a cabin in the woods so really don't have a need for elaborate TV as people spend their time outside and enjoying nature! Esp. The creek behind the house! Also helps to open the Flue before you make a fire. :(
Thank you for your feed back though!
everything was good
Near Blue Ridge Parkway—much larger than expected with great porch.
Large comfortable cabin on the creek
Comfortable home on the creek and a delightful remote lane. Thanks
Sounds like a relaxing white noise app
This is the second time we've stayed at the property, and each time we leave we are thinking about our next stay here. The privacy of the property and proximity to great hikes, as well as Mount Mitchell is the best. The stream out back sounds like you're listening to a relaxing sleep sound app, and it's what you'll hear falling asleep and waking up. Can't wait to go back.
Less than 12 miles from Burnsville downtown.
