The property is amazing. Jaron is an incredible owner and the house is stocked with anything you might need for your stay. The views are breathtaking and enjoying the sunset from the hot tub is truly a treat. Would highly recommend this property to any family or group looking for a relaxing vacation.
The Willis Retreat was the perfect getaway for my wife and I, plus our two dogs. Absolutely everything we may have needed was there, and we were amazed at the attention to detail within the cabin. The kitchen is huge, the whole place is decorated beautifully, and the booklet Randy provided told us everything we needed to know about the property and amenities. The fenced area turned out to be one of the best features, since we could let the dogs outside without worrying about them. We also let them roam around the property a bit, and they had a blast. It was so quiet, calm and relaxing. We can't wait to book another stay. Randy also gave us several suggestions for excursions around the area where we could take our dogs, and that made The Willis Retreat our favorite vacation so far. 100 stars. Thanks Randy.
My family and I rented Chalet Woodhaven for my wedding weekend. We wanted a house that was large enough for my family and bridesmaids. There were plenty of beds for everyone (20 people). When my mother and I found Chalet Woodhaven and started chatting with the homeowners, we knew this was the house for us. Kelley was very prompt in her replies, and attentive with anything (emailed her about parking) when we were at the property. She is forth-coming about the property and amenities.
We specifically liked that the downstairs was like a separate home... we used the downstairs for the bridesmaids, so we could have our dance parties and all sleep together in the "community" room. The downstairs also proved to be helpful for us when it was time to get ready. There was plenty of room for our makeup artist and personal stylist. Myself, along with the bridesmaids loved that we were able to relax in the hot tub, and enjoy everyone's fellowship.
The only challenging feature of the house, is the driveway. It's steep. Definitely helpful if you have four-wheel drive, otherwise you have to use the lowest gears your car will let you. However, we had about 20 people in the house and about 8 cars in the driveway, and we all fit.
If we are ever in the Black Mountain area, we would not hesitate to rent with Kelley again!
