“Beautiful Retreat”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is a beautiful home. I stayed with my parents, my husband, and my 2 children. The home has been equipped with thoughtful touches such as soaps, lotions, pantry items, coffee, laundry detergent, etc. There were games, puzzles, movies, and books. The view is gorgeous! Be warned though, the drive to get to the home is STEEP! We were in a minivan and did fine (in a lower gear). If you stay you should make sure you walk up the mountain-there is a tree swing near the top and blackberry bushes along the road. It took us about 35-40 minutes to drive to the Biltmore and downtown Asheville.

Liked best: All the beautiful windows, the deck, and the view!
Liked least: Only 1 shower. Master bath is a jetted tub--nice, but with 6 people 2 showers would have been nice.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review - it is much appreciated. Tim and I are glad you enjoyed the property. When we first bought the house, the drive up intimidated me a little too - we are from Florida after all - now I don't even think about it. You should see it in the fall - spectacular!

“Great views but not for everyone”

Overall, we had a great long weekend in this cabin outside of Asheville. It was a bit of a drive, more than 30 mins to downtown Asheville, but we enjoyed the downtown area and the zoo. I would definitely recommend both LAB for lunch/dinner and The Blackbird for brunch. Like others said, the drive up the mountain is steep, but not impossible. The directions Lynne provided were spot on. If you are planning on bringing more than one car, you would need to let her know in advance so she can leave more than one gate opener. This was not a huge problem for us, but it was a little bit of an inconvenience. Lynne was quick to answer her phone and offer to help, which I appreciated. Things to know: THERE IS ONLY ONE SHOWER. Yes, there are two full baths, but one only had a tub. Also, one of the bedrooms has an open ceiling, so that any and all sound made in the kitchen or on the stairs can be heard by those sleeping in the upstairs bedroom. There were no curtains in the lower bedroom or in the upper living area- I would not want to cover up the view, either!- but if you were to sleep on the pull-out couch, it would be quite bright in the am. These are not huge problems, but because we were four adults traveling with small kids, it was not ideal. Things we loved: the fully-stocked kitchen, even with salt, pepper, coffee, filters, etc. The huge porch and the VIEW!

Liked best: The views and coziness of the cabin
Liked least: the fact that there was only one shower and that the master was not sound-proof.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review - it is much appreciated. I believe you meant to say that there is only one shower - there are 2 tubs one of which is a whirlpool.
