I wanted a Hallmark Channel New Years Eve with snow. I got so much more! Walking into the front door of this cabin was breathtaking. My family had not gotten away in too long. THIS cabin was the perfect place to spend time together, and reconnect. Donna has made this feel like a piece of home but added relaxation. She loves this cabin deeply. That love is seen in the care taken within the home to make it like home...just better. It would be impossible to list all of the special touches added for comfort and enjoyment. There are books,televisions,stereos, games upstairs and in the game room downstairs. The beds are comfortable and warm. There is a large stone floor shower in the master bathroom that is amazing after a long day. The couch is divine for naps. There is a stone stacked fireplace that was perfect for anytime of day. But evenings by the fireplace were my favorite. There is no noise. Few cars passed. Mainly the people spraying the roads. More than once! We had a perfect road without needing special tires or 4 wheel drive. The property is great too. Even with the freezing weather we explored the creek area. I can't wait to see it in warmer weather. We will absolutely be going back!! While we had plenty of seclusion, town is not far away. There is a lot to see just in Burnsville alone. Asheville was a short drive away. There are lots of restaurants whether you want local or chain. There's a Walmart close (very important)! The kitchen is well appointed with anything you could possibly want or need for a large meal. We cooked several times. The dishwasher is quiet and works well. There is a washer and dryer available. The house is very clean. Donna has really provided everything to form the backdrop for a wonderful vacation. She is always available, checks in to make sure you arrived and don't need anything. This isn't like a lot of the other cabins where the Owner just wants you to pay and stay. This is like staying in a friend's cabin. I can't wait to get my feet back inside this home away from home! Donna, thank you for everything!
