Wonderful Vacation.

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Rich Mountain Retreat was perfect. It was my fiancé and I and the property was perfect for our weekend getaway. Everything that we needed was available in the cabin and Molly was very helpful. We kept a full schedule while there from hiking to zip lining to horseback riding. This cabin was the perfect location and secluded. We both had an awesome time and will be back soon!

PERFECT!!

The perfect getaway with all the comforts of home. Loved petting the horses and JJ the steer and especially enjoyed spending hours on the porch watching the hummingbirds. The cabin was spotless and had all the accommodations we needed. Planning to be back soon!

Magical...Breathtaking...Affordable...

  • 5 of 5
I spent the most wonderful time in 'Rich Mountain Retreat” during the Labour Day weekend. If you are looking for a peaceful private beautiful place where you can “recharge” the batteries, the 'Rich Mountain Retreat” is a certain place for that. Cabin is gorgeous, view is breathtaking, owner Molly is a pleasure to work with. And please forget about internet while you are here. :-) The place is truly magical and I can't wait when I come back there again. Many thanks for the opportunity to enjoy your cabin!

Serene designer getaway in Blue Ridge Mountains

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a peaceful hideout within a comfortable drive of numerous state parks, national forests, clear mountain lakes, quaint antique filled towns, a nice variety of local restaurants, tumbling waterfalls, and lush hiking trails, this is it! We had plenty to do and golfed on two different courses in addition to all of the other activities, but also enjoyed just hanging out in the living room and reading a good book. Our favorite golf course was Whitepath, which was uncrowded and had herds of deer wandering along the extremely hilly fairways. The cabin has recently been remodeled, is immaculate and beautifully furnished. The fact that our host is a residential designer who worked on high end homes in the area was apparent in every rustic chic detail...the kitchen was well equipped with a lovely view of the forest, the living room is spacious but cozy and the shower is awesome.
Getting to the cabin requires a 9 mile drive on a 2 lane road from the nearest main highway, followed by another 2 miles up a winding narrow gravel road, but even though the setting is private, there are several larger "cabins" on acreage nearby that are out of sight but close enough to keep one from feeling too isolated. Coming from Florida, we enjoyed the noticeably cooler days and nights, did a lot of cooking, dined and breakfasted on the screen porch and loved listening to the roar of cicadas after dark. Molly was extremely gracious and after agonizing over numerous cabins online, we were very pleased with our choice. We combined it with a trip to Charleston and St. Augustine followed by a visit to the High Museum in Atlanta on our way home and had a wonderful Southern road trip. Highly recommended if you love being out of doors but appreciate a nicely furnished home.

Owner's Response: I am very thankful that my guests are pleased with my new cabin! I would like to point out an improvement (in my opinion), which is the wonderful new view from the kitchen window of the Rich Mountain Wilderness.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful, relaxing, and above all, peaceful few days at this lovely home. The renting process was easy, and the price does'nt even come close to reflecting the beauty of this little house in the woods.
Kitchen was completely stocked. There were books on the bookshelf, and one of favorite movies (for one rainy night we had) for the dvd. The 2 bathrooms were a plus, and the shower in the main bath had great pressure.
Molly and her husband were outside at their horse barn when we drove up, and they were gracious and welcoming.
Rich Mountain retreat was exactly what we were looking for. We seriously didnt want to leave. The house is homey, and you feel comfortable as soon as you walk in. No jacuzzi, no pool table....just a great place to relax, unplug, and breathe.

TOTALLY DELIGHTFUL!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Molly's cabin, which is really a perfect home, for four nights. It was just what we were looking for. It is situated deep in the wilderness but you're never far from your caring and delightful host Molly if you are in need of anything. We loved the country, woodsy setting and wish we had had more time to walk and explore the area. As we were searching for real estate for ourselves our time in the cabin was limited but the drive to and fro was always a delight. We saw deer several times in the fields on the approach to the cabin – always special!

Molly was a great help giving us shortcuts and directions to our various destinations. She is delightful and was very willing to help us in anyway she could with our questions.

The cabin itself is furnished and decorated in such a way to make you feel right at home. Rocking chairs on the front porch and the screen porch and the gas grill all added to the ambience which we thoroughly enjoyed and hope to again, as we will definitely be staying here - to enjoy this wonderful Rich Mountain Retreat AND it's owner, Molly!
