“Vacation in the mountains”
Reviewed 16 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The house was well kept. It had your bedding and pots and pans to cook with. The biggest down side was the trees need to be cut down to have a better view. The road was a little rough leading up to the cabin. So a small car would not be recommended. Need some new outdoor furniture. A few pieces were broken. The wi fi is not the fastest either. The area was very nice though. Black Mountain was a nice town.

“Great View”
Reviewed 12 May 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We really enjoyed our stay at this place, enough in fact that we will be going back soon to shop for property. Although a little of the beaten path, this house is within 10 minutes of a great grocery store and several restaurants. The home was furnished with plenty of firewood which was put to good use every night. The view off the back porch was extraordinary and provided plenty of peace and quiet. We would recommend this home to anyone, certainly a great family retreat.

“a stay in the mountains”
Reviewed 25 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A place to get away from the city. Just like living Luther country, but with all the luxuries. The town of Black Mountain was just down the road, a great little town. Asheville was well worth a visit, especially Biltmore estate. Our cabin was well equipped and the beds were very comfortable. We would stop there again.

“A Platium stay at Sterling Retreat!”
Reviewed 23 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We traveled with our dog and made Sterling our home base for hiking in the area. The area was great for great food, outdoor activities and dog friendly. However, we could have easily just stayed at the cabin and enjoyed every minute. Well laid out, comfortable and nothing missing. The bed in the master bedroom was incredibly comfy. We liked it so much that we extended our 8 day stay for another day (and wish we could have done more). We will definitely come back!
