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 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!!

Spacious house with great views.

The property was very convenient to get to Morganton (where we went to a wedding) and to head west to Asheville. Thanks!

This Mountain Ridge Retreat home is beyond amazing! Peace and quiet and breathtaking views await you

  • 5 of 5

A group of 8 stayed here mid August 2017. Our every need was met. The placement of the bedrooms was just right. Even the room with the three beds. We never had to contact Barbara for anything simply because she was a great host. The home came with everything needed to feel right at home from linen to kitchen supplies, even down to laundry supplies if needed. Your tucked away in a quiet culdasac on a mountain. The mountain landscape views are breathtaking and waking up to them every morning made me want to stay longer. The master bedroom is 5 star. The others are cozy and furnished nicely. The home is also kid/family friendly supplied with board and card games. Our 7 year old had plenty to do. Honestly, the pictures don't do this home the justice it deserves. I at first was concerned about whether the home was outdated and small but boy was I in for a surprise when we arrived and first stepped through the door. Barbara has an amazing home and you would thoroughly enjoy your stay here. This is a real review. My family and our group are from MD and we would love to come stay here again whenever we are in the area.

Owner's Response: I'm always concerned when I rent to large groups but there was no reason because this group was simply great. Love hosts them and hope they will return

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house with extended family as we were in the area for a wedding. It was easy to find, the view was stunning and the home was large and beautiful. And the house had everything we needed and more. Barbara the owner was very responsive and very friendly in responding to any questions that we had. We would stay here again!

Absolutely Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

I knew this home would be quite nice and have a good view. However, I was not prepared for how gorgeous and spacious the home is, nor for the amazing view. Everything one could want or think about was included in this lovely home. Barbara was most helpful and easy to work with. This helped make for a really pleasant and enjoyable vacation for our whole extended family. One word of caution is that if you have trouble with steps as I do, the three front steps are much higher than normal and there is not a handrail. We used extra wooden blocks that I carry with me so that I could negotiate each step along with someone to help me. For most people, they wouldn't even notice it. I highly recommend this fabulous home and its location. Thanks, Barbara

The home was spacious and the view was wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

We came to the area for a wedding and were delighted to find this place. It was close to the Interstate, yet secluded. The home worked great for our large family to relax together and enjoy our time away. The many rooms allowed us to be together as a group, but there were also areas of privacy. I would highly recommend this home for a getaway!
