Great cabin with great views

  • 5 of 5
Great cabin with great views. Private & Secluded.Came up for a long ski weekend and decided to rent a home instead of the usual hotel room. Never have rented a cabin before, really didn't know what to expect. Was pleasantly surprised by the ease of making the reservation and just booking it here on homeaway. Took less than a minute to reserve. Called the rental office number with questions which were answered with accurate information by a professional, who was very well versed on the area and the home. The recommendations she made were followed and one reason why we had such a successful vacation. They also provide you with an extensive welcome package that sends you in any direction imaginable. We really appreciated all the guidence. After our stay the office personal emailed and asked that we write a review. I like the follow up after our stay, and appreciate their efforts. Even the housekeeper called to check on us during our stay when it snowed one evening.
Upon check in this home was clean, well kept, you could tell someone cares about this place. The bedding and furniture was comfortable, the kitchen well equipped with appliances, dishes, wine glasses and lots of movie channels which are important with 3 small kids during the winter months.
The views were exceptional and unobstructed in about every direction. Not only could you see the river but you could hear it on your deck, very relaxing & really cool.
Will definitely plan a return trip here. Hopefully this summer when we can enjoy the lake and rent a pontoon boat.

Perfect Week End Getaway

  • 5 of 5
I took an all girls trip for a week end in June to celebrate my birthday. The seven of us had plenty of room to relax, sunbathe on the deck, walk to the river, cook in kitchen, grill and sleep. The cabin is very spacious and even with our group you could find a spot to be alone. It was an awesome way to beat the Charlotte city heat and was a very easy drive!!!
We also enjoyed the restaurants and shops in downtown Boone on our way to and from the cabin.
Pictures do not do the cabin justice. It is so peaceful and in the center of nature. Both the day time and night time views are just amazing. I have been talking about it so much that my boyfriend can’t wait for me to plan a trip for him!!! Definitely will visit again!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. Yes, Elk River cabin is gorgeous, with awesome views, & very secluded. A spacious cabin and a wonderful place for families to celebrate & gather. It is an easy drive from any direction with paved roads. Great for folks who enjoy the rushing waters of the river and the mountain views. 37 acres to hike & explore makes this a great adventure for any family.

Great cabin

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time this week while we stayed in the cabin. We loved the feel of being in seclusion and quiet. I was impressed how you get just what is advertised on their website. I would highly recommend anyone to rent this cabin. We are planning to stay there again next year.The best part was it had a very open floor plan where everyone can be on the same floor and be comfortable.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words. They are most appreciated. Yes, this place is gorgeous, one of the nicest in the rental program. Its hard to find total seclusion like this anywhere in north America with easy road access and get to town in about 30 mins. And the river is breath taking! Please know you all are welcome back anytime. Expect too a return guest discount. Thanks so much.

Relaxing Accommodations

  • 5 of 5
Arrived on Friday evening with a small group of ladies for a relaxing weekend. Never anticipated the accommodations to be so relaxing and just absolutely perfect. From the moment we entered I realized this weekend would be exactly what we needed. Spacious and nicely decorated. Deck above the river made for nice breakfast, lunch and cocktail times. You are able to hear the river while sitting outside. Also the river can be accessed by foot. Next time inter tubes are a must. Fire pit also made for the perfect cocktail location. Gracious amount of space even allowed for alone time if you so desired in a group of seven. I hope a return visit is in my near future. Great for the much needed get-a-way.

Our 3rd visit to Elk River cabin was wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you'll for another great visit. The place was perfect. The views, even with all the summer foliage were open to the river and mountain range. The place was really clean (thanks to Shelia the housekeeper) who checked on us twice. Spacious, well furnished and maintained. Its easy to see that someone dearly loves this place. We so appreciate you all sharing this home with us. We'll be back!

Clean, pretty place with a beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here just last weekend. It was a last minute get away for just me and my wife. Couldn't find many cabins that were open that weekend, I guess the mountains are getting popular especially with this big lake so close by. Its a really big cabin I think it sleeps 10 but it was just me and the wife. The rental company was nice enough to discount the cost since we just a couple and not a full house. We really appreciate the service and attention we received. Gorgeous place with beautiful views. This cabin sits on 36 acres, with river frontage, caves, a great place if you like to roam around in the woods. Hiked all over the property, Fished and swam. My wife loved it and wants to go back.

It's the perfect place for folks looking to hike and fishing on the river is exceptional. We look forward to hearing from you again when your vacation plans call for a trip this direction. Know you are welcome back anytime. Also, wanted to thank you for leaving your housekeeper such a nice tip. I think thats a very kind gesture. I know she drove you all to town when you're car broke down. She would have done that for any guests but the large tip you left her is very much appreciated. You 'all are very kind and thoughtful folks.
