Why Barbara Stroud chose North Carolina

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! 4.9/5 -

I was part of a group of quilters that spent five days at this fabulous home. The sleeping accommodations were excellent with large comfy beds and ours even had a sitting room and walkin closet. The kitchen has every modern appliance and the dining room is wonderfully decorated and located right off the kitchen. In the evenings we were able to relax in a large comfortable living room with gorgeous mountain views. All of us agreed we will be coming back here for our retreats again. Also I challenge anyone to find a cleaner home to stay in.

Beautiful Views from this Mountain Home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay immensely. The views from the porch were spectacular, and we didn't even mind not having a tv in the upstairs bedrooms because it gave us a chance to talk and spend time with family, which was our main priority (btw...there are TVs downstairs and in the master bedroom).

Barbara was so accommodating and easy to work with, and when I texted her, she responded quickly and efficiently. The only downside was low water pressure in the showers, but other than that, we had a wonderful time.

The house is located a few miles from I-40, perfect access to Charlotte, Asheville, Winston-Salem, and Boone (about an hour or so away from each of these cities), and we did day trips to the Biltmore, Old Salem, and snow tubing.

Overall, we had an amazing time and would recommend staying at this house.

Owner's Response: Not sure what the problem was with the water pressure. I check it when I received this notice and all seems well. We are on city water here and there could have been something going on there. Guest left home very nice. I wish all my guests were as easy to work with and as Meredith and her family.I will offer a 10% discount to this group if they should book again.
