Our family loved this mountain home! The house is nice, the details are impressive, the porches are private and the views from the one porch is outstanding. We like to cook, we found a respectable stocked kitchen with tools you need to cook up a good meal. The grill was good for cooking steaks and salmon, but don't try the side burner, unless you want to simmer something. Our grandchildren are 8, and 13 years old, the loft was perfect for them, it's very spacious and stocked with board games, etc. They had their privacy which seemed to make them happy, and also all their gear could be there, out of the way of the day in day out activities. We get to the property and pretty much stay, as area restaurants are not that good. However we did a road trip to Asheville on Monday and visited the Biltmore House which was fabulous, and only about an hours drive. This house is one of our favorites, even the kitchen is stocked with staples.
