Why Barbara Stroud chose Valdese

This home is the perfect place for family gathering and yet plenty of space to be by yourself.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to send a note to tell you how nice the home is. You have done

a beautiful job in decorating the home. It is much more than we expected.

We have stayed at several VRBO rentals and I must say that this is the best.

You have made our stay and time with our family very special with your attention to detail. Thank you and we hope you have a nice holiday season.

Wonderful mountain home with beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

Instead of getting three hotel rooms for our visit to relatives in the NC mtns, we stayed at this wonderful mountain home. The pictures do not do it justice, the home is clean and beautifully decorated with plenty of room to spread out. The master bedroom is huge with a comfortable bed and ceiling fan with a sitting room right off the master, and the large living room on the main level leads out to a porch with a terrific view of the valley below. The owner provided excellent customer service and answered all our questions quickly. We had five in our group, and the next time we come up to the mountains to visit, we are definitely reserving this home - highly recommended!!

Great Christmas vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent Christmas holidays at this spacious home and were we very pleased with all aspects of this home. It provided plenty of room for my family and in-laws who visited for Christmas dinner. Although nestled in the mountains, it was located in a great location not more than 10 minutes from local grocery stores and restaurants and the interstate. I would definitely rent this home again and would recommend to anyone looking to spend the holidays in the mountains with family. The owner was very accommodating, helpful, and veteran friendly which I greatly appreciated.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and well equipped. The views are breathtaking. 6 family members came for a wedding in Hickory we all had our own bed and more space than you can imagine. I would highly recommend this house and if in the area again would stay here absolutely.

Amazing Mountain Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This property is really awesome! Pictures do not do it justice! Our party of five each had a special nook for snoozing, reading, eating, or sleeping. The house is decorated beautifully with interesting items and is well cared for by the owner. The owner was available and easy to talk with regarding the rental and our stay. Amazing views from all floors in the house of the mountains and cities below. We experienced the rains from remnants of Hurricane Nate and felt very safe and snug in this retreat. It is close to Blowing Rock, Hickory, Morganton or Asheville for day trips. The house is truly delightful and charming! We had such a good time during our week. Others had planned to make the trip with us--house is spacious and sleeps 10! Great place for family reunion! We definitely would plan to stay here again!
