My girlfriend and I stayed here for three weeks during July, and I've got nothing but compliments and good words to share about the experience!
There's a river nearby, loaded with places to drop your stuff and relax alongside the current of the water. Natural beauty sprawls around the river in all directions, providing much to look at, whether with binoculars or simply by eye! The water is beautiful and chilled, making its way tranquilly down the mountain.
Not far away is an entrance to the Appalachian trail! At the same location, there is a road that brings you to the top of one of the mountains- they call it "The Beauty Spot". The name fits perfectly. To see photos of such a place is one thing, but to physically be in the presence of such sheer beauty and greatness is literally breath-taking. The mountain ranges recede into the distance, standing massively side-by-side until they fade away into the blue sky behind them.
We also admired the dogs who live on the property! They may bark and be on edge at first, but once they get used to you, and you to them, they're among the most sweetest dogs I've encountered. Daisy and Toby were my favorite!
The hosts... What was greatest about our stay there, was that the hosts are a family- and through text I cannot express the sincerity of that enough! Every herb, produce, chicken, bee, flower, etc., was raised or grown with loving intention. Stress is absent in such a place and with such a family.
My girlfriend and I felt as if we too were considered family. It was tough leaving in the end, and I've already begun plotting when I'll be visiting again!

The beds were super comfortable. The hostess was very nice. We had a tour of the farm. The creek is feet from the house and a lovely bubbling sound was audible as I fell asleep. There's a nice little hike right outside the front door and an entry to the Applachian trail is only a 15 minutes drive. The apartment feels rustic because the floors are bare concrete.
