Wonderful getaway "gem"

Wonderful getaway "gem"
  • 5 of 5
We have been visiting DuPont State Forest and Pisgah National Forest for about five years now. For the past 4 years we have spent our Thanksgiving Holiday in the area. Previous years we have stayed in a hotel, this year we decided to try and rent a cabin. While searching I came across the "gem in the forest". This discription does not do justice to what it really is. There was7 of us and we had plenty of room. It was exactly what we were looking for a nice neat clean cabin tucked away in the woods. We spend most of our time hiking to the waterfalls in the area and just enjoying the out doors. When we were at the cabin there was plenty to do, from books to read, games to play or just sitting around the fire talking about our day or memories of the past. My wife and I plan on returning sometime soon for a weekend getaway, we will also try to book again for next year for the family. We did not fish this time but did spend sometime around the pond watching the fish swim around. We had no problem getting a Honda accord up to the cabin. Again this "gem" was exactly what we were looking for, you can not go wrong with the "gem".

A TRUE "GEM" IN THE FOREST

A TRUE "GEM" IN THE FOREST
  • 5 of 5
Words cannot express how wonderful this cabin is! It is truly a "gem" in the forest! Our family has visited over the last 10 years and try to visit as often as we can throughout the year. Our children are 10, 15 and 17. They have basically all grown up in "the cabin". Our most favorite family memories are being at Cedar Mountain. The cabin is awesome! It has every comfort you could possibly imagine. Just like home! There is enough space inside and outside for our family of 5 and more. There are games, puzzles, movies, books and magazines, plus let's not forget about the fishing! Delicious trout! We love the wood burning fireplace. The owners are amazing and have worked with us so many times when events have happened that are out of our control. They have always been gracious and kind and willing to help us anyway they could. Our kids love the loft area! The porch area is amazing! If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the world and enjoy great family time together, this is the place to go. It has been such a blessing to our family, and we thank God for the opportunity to be able to spend time in this cabin! It's our favorite vacation spot!

Cedar Mountain

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was well appointed and clean. We enjoyed the privacy, trails from the cabin, and the fish pond. The Cedar Mountain cafe serves a great breakfast and is about 5 min from the cabin. Brevard is about 20 min away and a fantastic town! This cabin is a perfect getaway for a small family, we plan to return in the spring.

Pretty but rugged

  • 3 of 5
Lovely setting and cottage. It's a shame there's not more to the accommodations. Dated decor and cobwebs weren't deal-breakers, but beds are quite uncomfortable and the 'clean' towels smelled horrible. Be aware: the road to the cabin is rugged and impossible without 4-wheel drive vehicle. It's better than tent camping, but if you are looking for romantic or comfy accommodations, you might continue your search.

Owner's Response: We feel the necessity to provide background information as we address this review. The daughter of the reviewer specifically chose our location because it "fit the theme" of her wedding plans. She was having an outdoor wedding at DuPont State Forest. The bride actually called and made all of the arrangements, and was very excited that she had found us online. Unfortunately, the mother actually paid for this reservation and was displeased with her daughter's plans.
The mother sent this negative VRBO review while the daughter left a completely contrasting review in "our guest book". The daughter's review was "glowing" and reflected very pleased patrons with all of the family names attached. The bride’s review was quite beautiful and stated all positives and compliments including.... "the cabin was perfect and that she hoped to come back many more times”. We were surprised, confused and upset by these conflicting reviews.
We love sharing our beautiful property and log cabin with others and pride ourselves in providing clean and comfortable accommodations. We are exactly as we advertise: “log cabin living in a true Nature Lover’s Paradise” and “comfort in a rustic, private setting”.
To address some specific negatives left in her review : Bed comfort is subjective and truly is a matter of personal preference. Other guests have commented that the beds were very comfortable. To compare us to barely being better than tent camping is a complete misrepresentation of what we offer our guests. The road to our cabin is gravel but it does NOT require 4WD under ordinary conditions. The only exception would be when there are snow accumulations. We have had hundreds of guests rent this cabin over the past 12 years and the majority did not have 4WD.

As you evaluate our cabin for your mountain getaway, please take a look at all the other reviews. We have many patrons who return every year and consider the "GEM in The Forest " to be their "second home".

A little piece of heaven!!

  • 5 of 5
My kids and I rented this cabin as an alternative to the high priced hotels. We are so glad that we did. It was clean, comfortable and had charm. The loft was perfect for the kids. The bathroom is a little small, but was clean and had great water pressure in the shower. The yard was perfect...covered in soft, cushy green moss (barefoot heaven). Behind the cabin, in the woods, run some small creeks. The kids loved walking in the cold water. The cabin is secluded and quiet. If you want peace, this is the place to go. It has a wonderful vibe for nature lovers. If you keep the tv and outside influences off, you will feel truly refreshed when you leave. We will definitely be back.
