They say "better late than never" (so sorry Rick). The reason I can still write this review, after almost a year, is because every detail about our trip and every detail of Rick's warm and comfortable home makes me smile whenever it comes to mind along with how kind he was. He even shared some of his wonderful organic vegetables with us (thanks Rick). Also, the reason I am so late writing it is that I thought my husband had done the review and he thought I had and we were both horror stuck that neither had!!! Anyway, all that said and done, Rick was always quick to get back to us and answer ALL our questions and we had a lot:) On our arrival day Rick met us at the post office (easy to find) and lead us to The Pinewoods. How much better service could you ask for? From the moment we arrived we knew we had made a great choice!!! We found the home to be warm and cozy with the wonderful fireplace, (yes, we did use it every night even in August) the comfortable furniture and beds, oh and we never needed any airconditioning! Each evening was spent grilling out on the deck, but not before we soothed our tired bones in the refreshing hot tub with a nice glass of wine. After we ate we sat back with a roaring fire going and reminisced about our day then before bed I was off to my nightly soak in the bathroom whirlpool tub. The bathroom is quite large and has a separate shower which suited my husband. We spent most of our days at the house just relaxing with a good book since we had already been to Little Switzerland a number of times over the years and had done most of ALL the many neat things there are to do there, especially up along the Blue Ridge Parkway (really easy access to the Parkway from the house). This trip was to relax, spend time with each other and just enjoy the peace and serenity of the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains and Rick's home affords all of that and more. We loved how private and secluded it was yet we were close to every thing we needed (groceries, gas, restaurants, etc.). I can't express any better how enjoyable Rick's home was and what a treasure he is:) We highly recommend this home and we have stayed in many, some of which, let's just suffice to say I was not too enthusiastic about:( You'd WILL NOT be disappointed with this choice!!! Thanks Rick, we think the job you have suits you perfect, you are a great host!!!
