Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you for sharing the house with us.

It was comfortable clean and convenient. The hot tub was great and the view was lovely. The coffee was a nice bonus since we forgot to bring our own. Very thoughtful! We will recommend this place to others and be back.

GOOD GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfect for us. It is tucked away on its own private road. There we found peace and quiet, flowers and hummingbirds plus a breathtaking view from the back porch. It rained for most of our stay there but we were just happy to be away from it all. We had one sunny day to do a little hiking and to just enjoy the amazing outdoors in Banner Elk and surrounding area.

The owners and the town people overall were so genuinely friendly and hospitable it was wonderful. Also I don't think its mentioned that there is a garden tub! That is a definite perk for me seeing as I only have a shower at home. It was nice to have a bubble bath! I had a good time and hope to return again some time.

Owner's Response: Cynthia and Peter were excellent guests and left the house in unbelievably neat condition. We are sorry the weather was rainy but are glad they enjoyed their stay anyway. We hope to welcome them back in the near future!

WONDERFUL RESPITE!

  • 5 of 5
The house was very nice. John and Judy provide everything to make your stay perfect! The house is far away enough from the "tourists" to be peaceful but close enough to all the attractions that we love in the Boone/Blowing rock area. And the Fergusons provide EXCELLENT directions and short cuts to anywhere you could possibly want to go! We are looking forward to another stay here!

GREAT VIEW AND PLEASANT STAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property. It has great mountain view and is a very quiet place to stay! It was also very nice of the owner to prepare many things needed for a trip in the property. That's very thoughtful and considerate of the owner. We enjoyed our stay for three days and played golf in a nearby beautifu golf course. The road was a little difficult to find at the begining when arriving. Yet, the owner was easy to reach by phone and guided us to the property with no difficulty at all. In all, we enjoyed our stay and are thankful to the owner for their thoughtfulness in preparing everything you can imagine to use for a trip from the kitchen to the bedrooms, e.g., vegetable oil, salt, seasoning, hand lotion, and almost everything. We appreciate the kindness and consideration of the owner. We l definitely recommend this property to a friend and relative. We will also consider returning when we make our vacation choice to stay in the mountains again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your nice review. We are lucky to have several nice golf courses nearby, as well as the ski slopes, Watauga Lake, stocked trout streams and many hiking and biking choices. Every season of the year offers great opportunities for recreation in the NC High Country!
We enjoyed having you stay with us and hope to see you again soon.

WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE MOUNTAIN VISTA HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Mountain Vista House was absolutely wonderful. Our hosts were very caring and provided
much more than expectations. (even shampoo and conditioner). One only needs to bring food. The house was very clean, warm and cozy. They even provided blankets to keep warm as we sat on the deck
overlooking their magnificent views of the mountain's foliage.
Nan and I will hopefully return to enjoy their home again.

Owner's Response: It was truly our pleasure to host Bob and Nan. They came at just the right time, as the fall foliage show was still at its peak. The night after they left the temperature fell to 27 and we got the season's first snowfall. We look forward to their next visit!

VERY HAPPY WE CHOSE THIS SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I are so happy we chose to rent this house. The view from the back porch was amazing! The mountain is beautiful. The house was nicely prepared for our arrival. Everything about the house was great. We enjoyed grilling steaks, watching football and playing Foosball. There are some teriffic hiking trails nearby. We hiked in Beech Mountain and in Linville Falls. The owners were extremely kind. You can't go wrong staying here!

Owner's Response: The view is great all year round, but the leaf season is our favorite. We try hard to make the house a "home away from home" so everything our renters may need is at hand. We enjoy watching TV, so we're glad to provide a full satellite package. There are many hiking trails nearby which range from easy to challenging. We especially enjoy driving up to the top of Beech Mountain and having lunch at Fred's Mercantile. Hope you'll come back again!

BEYOND DISSAPOINTED

  • 1 of 5
Very upset. We are here now. Trying to contact the owner to no avail via phone. This "home" is beyond any level of filthy we have ever encountered. Very disturbing. Cannot describe how disappointed we are. Have photos illustrating filth but still trying to contact owner.

Owner's Response: We were shocked that this renter found our home unacceptable, especially as we have had a number of compliments on its cleanliness. However, we asked the renter to make a list of the items she thought needed attention, and she kindly obliged. We spent several hours attending to her list, and I believe the house has benefited from the extra attention. We will keep her suggestions in mind for the future.
