“A Perfect Getaway!”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This lovely, comfy cabin not only reflected the pictures in previous reviews, but surpassed them! Fernwood was cozy, lovingly decorated (including fresh flowers), and super, super clean! The view from the back porch was beautiful, and my husband and I, along with another couple (old friends) sat, rocked, sipped coffee, and listened to the sounds of nature. The kitchen appliances were great, the bathrooms more than adequate, and the furniture very comfortable. We took a day and traveled to Mt. Airy, NC (about 40 minutes away), where we toured the area and home town of Andy Griffith. We even rode around in "Sheriff Andy's" squad car! Judy was very helpful in recommending things to do in the area, and we so appreciated the loaf of bread she gave us. It was yummy! It was a glorious three days, and we hope that we can return!

Reviewed 25 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Me and My daughter needed a get away to just have fun .This place was very warm and charming .We spent 2 days here laughing and having fun and getting to know each other again since she is a mother of 3 now herself .Its been long time since we had time to just goofing around and acting like kids ourselves .Love this place so quite and peaceful . We enjoyed looking at Gods creations all around us No smogged or lights from the city .Just looking at the sky at night was so beautiful ,to get back in touch with nature. Would recommend this place to friends for sure and also next time we need a get away this is the place I would like to go to again for sure .Judy was very friendly ,and made us feel welcome .

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed 6 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Greatly enjoyed our stay in this super clean and cozy cabin! What a great attention to detail! So many fluffy towels and so much extra bedding....
Did I mention how clean it was???
Love that appliances were modern and updated. Dishwasher was athe plus.

My 7 yr. old and I really enjoyed spending time together playing checkers. We all enjoyed watching family movies.. all things we don't have as much time to do too often back at home during our busy city life.

It was nice and convenient to be close to Walmart, Macados, and the Blue Ridge Parkway, while still coming back to this quiet secluded getaway.

I will recommend it to all my friends who are interested in a quiet, relaxing, "away from it" all mountain vacation.

Would've stayed longer if we hadn't been chasing snow! ;)
We're from Miami (hint hint)!!

If I had to make any suggestion at all, I'd say a small washer/dryer would really come in handy. :)
Hope to visit again soon!

“Wonderful cabin”
Reviewed 13 November 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This is a great place to stay. The cabin was everything as advertised and perfect for our purposes. The loft was spacious and the bedroom was plenty big. We did take a day to drive down the Blue Ridge Parkway, and enjoy the beauty around us. We will be back in the future and give thanks to Judy and Richard for such a wonderful place for people to stay.
