The Cedar Duplex w/ Hot Tub, Creek, Lake Glenville NC

We stayed here the weekend of april 4-5. A 1st unit in the Cedar Duplex. Also loved the 3BR Creekside Cedar Cabin. Both are really well decorated, very comfortable, and include a full kitchen. The unit was extremely clean and fully stocked so all you need to bring is food. It is clear that it is well taken care of and the owners want you to enjoy yourself. The grounds are lovely and sit across the road from an old barn and christmas tree farm. What we liked best about this unit was the quiet surroundings and convenient location. This property is only about 6-7 minutes from the crossroads in Cashiers and about 3 minutes from the marina in Glenville but it is about one mile east of 107 and is very peaceful. Absolutely would recommend to my best friend. MK of Atlanta, GA

A perfect holiday in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful property over Thanksgiving. We really enjoyed our stay. We travel quite a bit and we typically stay in vacation rentals vs. hotels and this was one of our best experiences. Christina was such a sweet hostess and is there whenever you need her. She made us feel so welcomed and right at home.

The cedar villas itself was super clean and so spacious. We loved everything about the villa. The king size bed was super comfy and we both slept so good.

The villa is close to shops, restaurants and hiking. It is really in a perfect location. My husband and I plan on coming back here for a future mountain getaway. If you are looking for a place to stay in the mountains, this is the place to stay.

Thanks Chritina for everything!

Cozy with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

Christine and Cricket were more than hospitable! The instructions were very clear, and I had ample correspondence before arrival to clear up any questions I had. Cricket's Den was so cozy with everything we could need for a weekend getaway! Christine gave great recommendations for food and activities. They were very lovely and so was the accommodation!

Owner's Response: Well, I must say, as a property owner and host of several here in our beautiful area just five miles from the center downtown Cashiers, I couldn't ask for better guests than Krista and Matt'! They came for a 'surprise anniversary get-away' and were so appreciative of their Cedar Duplex rental with Hot Spa! Any host would be thrilled to have such fantastic and CLEAN guests as they are! I know I was! I felt honored to have such a friendly and loving couple. You will have a place at mine anytime ready and able to escape life's busy pace for another enjoyable romantic mountain retreat at prime's here! Thanks again! Christine and Cricket

Spacious, well-kept, both inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I gave this cozy house a visit during our spring break, and we cannot say enough great things about it! It was quiet, peaceful, ADORABLE (the southwestern theme of the place was awesome). The rustic look of all the property is very well done, and even though there are a few properties in vicinity of each other, the place feels very secluded and private. The hot tub under the stars was great, especially contrasting the chilly mountain air, and the area of the house, bathroom, and kitchen juxtaposed cozy and spacious..

The Primes were as nice as can be - nicer, even - and saw to it that all of our needs were met in the friendliest of manners. Christine asked if we had an affinity for hiking and within minutes had a list of hiking trails, waterfalls, and sights to see, some of which were well-known and popular, and others that had been routed in the backwoods by her son. The amount of care and hospitality the Primes provide left us not only satisfied and content, but dying to go back, and at the prices they offer, this will be sooner, rather than later.

Owner's Response: With guests as fantastic as Hunter and Katie, we actually hated to see them go. They were so kind, appreciative and treated their rental like home while there as well as upon exit leaving all perfect! Hosts always hope for 'caring and happy guests', and this we got ! Thankful we are for the best of guests, warmly welcoming you back when ready and able to return for another mountain escape anytime. Thanks from The Primes

Very unique and cozy!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved "Cricket's Den", it was very cozy, but surprisingly a lot more spacious than expected. Everything was very clean, and the kitchen is definitely fully stocked with pots and utensils! We loved the western decor, and hot tub! Christine and her husband were both very kind and and helpful. We will definitely be returning at some point.

Fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away by how large the place was. Bedroom was very comfortable and had a flat screen. Kitchen had every amenity you might need. Great lighting throughout the entire unit.

Used the charcoal grill and got in the large whirlpool (with colored lighting!) our first night. Fire pit in front yard was awesome. Thanks for the starter wood and logs. Really enjoyed seeing all the stars...have never seen so many. And saw three shooting stars.

Place was decorated with all kinds of cool antiques and western much to look at!

Chrisine was very hospitable and helpful. We will be back, for sure.
