My husband and I had a lovely week renting the upper floor of this unit. The pictures in the listing are very accurate for this unit. What they do not show, however, is the wonderful view from the balcony and from the picture windows in the living room! We thoroughly enjoyed the mountain views from this unit; they are superb and restful---not another cabin in sight from the balcony! I could hardly restrain myself from taking picture after picture from the balcony, trying to catch the different moods of the clouds and the time of day. We were even graced with an exquisite rainbow one evening!
We also enjoyed watching the birds at the feeder on the porch (plus the occasional squirrel who managed to find a way to steal birdseed) and the hummingbirds at the hummingbird feeder.
This unit was very clean and comfortable, and Gail was extremely responsive and attentive.
Even thought the weather was rainy on some of our days, we were able to enjoy trips to Mount Mitchell (highest peak east of the Mississippi), Beech Mountain (highest town east of the Rocky Mountains, with a fun store, Fred's Mercantile, which stocks a little bit of everything!), Little Switzerland (delicious lunch at the Little Switzerland cafe, and fun browsing at the Books and Beans 3-story bookstore), and several craft studios/galleries. We also enjoyed drives along the Blue Ridge Parkway and drives around Burnsville and surrounding areas looking for quilt blocks on some of the nine "quilt trails" in the area (see http://www.quilttrailswnc.org/ for information).
We look forward to renting this unit again sometime and/or renting the larger 4 bedroom unit for a family reunion.
Please do be aware that these units are up a winding, gravel mountain road. If your car sits lower to the ground than the average car you may have a bit of trouble. but our "ordinary" car did just fine with careful driving.
