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.

Great Quilt Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Shared this home with 5 quilters from Fl. Set up in front of windows on sun deck. Love looking up from our sewing to the view of the mountains. Beds were great, food better and company fantastic. This was the 3rd and best retreat so far. Looking forward to the next one.

The perfect home for family!

  • 5 of 5

I just can't say enough good things about this home or the wonderful owner. From the very beginning, communication was excellent and friendly. All questions were answered.

The house itself is absolutely beautiful with a stunning view of the valley from all levels. The master bedroom with private sitting room was a special treat. Five of us stayed there, but there was room for at least 6 to 8 more. Full kitchen, sun room, game room, and even a special room for children to play. The decor was gorgeous and the entire house was very comfortable. The only drawback might be for those with mobility issues as there are stairs, but overall this place was just perfect. We had a family reunion there with about 14 people and there was ample room for everyone.

Thank you so much for opening up your beautiful home. We will definitely be back the next time we visit North Carolina!

Owner's Response: I wish there was a place for an elevator so that those who have problems with the stairs could enjoy all levels of the home.

What an amazing property!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home this home because our son was graduating from a nearby college. We need a place to have a quaint get together for our family. The home was spacious and very clean. It has lots and lots of space. It was well-stocked and everything was very accessible. The description and location of the home was just as described. The beds were very comfortable. The view from each floor was absolutely breath taking. We just sat on the poach and enjoyed the view for hours. Ms. Barbara was easy to get in contact with. I would defiantly recommend this property to anyone.

Beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

Our son was graduating form Lenior - Rhyne University in Hickory and we needed a place that would accommodate a large group for a celebration. Well, this place was perfect!!!! It is an older home with lots and lots of charm. My children were amazed to see an actual old typewriter and camera. The view from each level was absolutely breath taking. The house was clean and well stocked. It had everything we needed and more. The beds were comfortable and fresh. The bottom level has a card table and we stayed up all night playing card games and enjoying each other. The house has a tv on the middle and bottom levels but we really did not watch them because this was the perfect place to spend quality time with the family. Ms. Barbara was easy to get in touch with and very nice. I would defiantly return for a visit and recommend that you do to.

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.
