Excellent Vacation Spot - Private

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 28, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
We were very impressed with the entire experience. We were able to reserve the cottage very quickly without any hassles, it was exceptionally clean, beautifully furnished, and had all the amenities you could ask for. We had an issue with the satellite going out, so the owner came right over and switched out the box. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a beautiful view of the mountains from a secluded spot.

We spent a day out on beautiful Watauga Lake, even got to see a bald eagle; Fly fished around the different rivers between Butler and Valley Forge; ate a wonderful dinner at Captain's Table Restaurant, and visited Blowing Rock. Spectacular view with a double rainbow.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for saying such nice things. Anyone staying with us can expect A+ service. Look forward to seeing you folks return one day soon, expect a return guest discount too!

Clean home--Great Views and Location

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 28, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
Overall we were very happy with this home. The views were incredible and the location was exactly what we were looking for! The cottage was very clean and Melody (the Property Mgr) was very easy to work with. My only complaint is that there is no WiFi at the cottage…the description does not state that it has WiFi so that was my fault for not asking. I would advise anyone who rents this cottage to do their homework before their arrival as to what you plan on doing while you're there because none of our cell phones worked either…we were definitely "away from it all" as the cottage description says :) In a way, it was kind of nice to not have the cell phones ringing or feeling the need to constantly check email.
We had a decent amount of rain the first couple of days but once that was over, we were on the lake as much as possible! The people at Lakeshore Marina were very nice and the pontoon boat was nice too! I'd recommend reserving in advance though as we almost lost out on a day because of this but they called us when someone canceled at the last minute so we were happy to take the boat out again! The lake was beautiful! I've never been swimming in a lake before as there are gators in the lakes where I live!! The water was clear and clean and I swam until we had to turn the boat in at 6:00!!
There's a popular swimming hole a few miles from the house that we found out about from some magazines we got in Boone. Going North on 321, it's just past the Watauga River bridge…there are usually cars parked along side the road. Had hours of fun there!
We found Ingles (grocery store) in Boone to have everything we needed as well as a great beer selection! The guys at Peabody's (also in Boone) were really nice and they had a great beer and wine selection as well! The Riverview gas station near the house does not sell alcohol so get it in Boone! We found a few things we needed there in a bind and the people that worked there were good ol country folk!
There's even a doctor's office that allowed walk-ins in Hampton (on Hwy 321) that we had to utilize due to a sick child and a pharmacy a few doors down from there. Both were accommodating with our out-of-state insurance.
All in all it was a great vacation! I'd stay here again :)
Owner's Response: That's right this place is very peaceful and quite. I agree the views are second to none. We do share and recommend that folks plan a little activities prior to leaving home so you can have a game plan in mind. We provide each guest with an extensive welcome package that's updated monthly and kept current with area activities, events and lots of things to do that pertain to that season. Great road access to towns with restaurants and shopping, lots to do in about every direction. Boat rentals, skiing, Hiking, wildlife viewing and fellowship can be shared here. No wifi at this place but we have ten other cabins in our rental program that offer wifi for anyone looking to stay connected. If you need a moderately priced clean place then look no further.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We really try hard at this end. Know you are always welcome and can expect a return guest discount your next trip up.

Nice Clean place to stay with great views

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 28, 2013
  • Stayed: Feb 2013
My fiance and I spent a three day weekend here over Valentines. We loved the views. They were impressive. This place is very private. You only see mtns and tress and aren't looking at houses. Inside the cabin was spottless. The housekeeper came by once to check on us and brought a bread basket.The kitchen was very spacious, offered all the appliances you would expect down to the wine opener. The furniture is nice and new. The beds are pillow top so you will definately get a goods nights rest. As always Melody provided us with excellent directions not only to the cabin but to nearby restaurants and attractions. This is our third stay with her and every time we enjoy ourselves and feel like we get a lot of bang out of our buck. Thanks Melody for doing such a good job. We really appreicate it!
Owner's Response: Hey Jeff and Diane,
Thank you so much for saying such nice things about Mtn View. I love that place too ..
Its really nice to have an honest review that is positive. Sometimes those are the hardest reviews to get. I wish we had more guests like you. And as a returning guest know that you'll get a very discounted rate. So we'll see you folks in Oct. Thanks again, Melody

Mountain view cottage

  • 2 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 18, 2012
  • Stayed: Oct 2012
The pictures are deceiving as far as the whole view. When you look to the left from the porch, you see a delapitated house and 2 other homes right down below. It isnt as private as the picture shows which was what we were looking for. The driveway was difficult getting up and down even with our chevy pick up with trailer. Also the directions were difficult as there aren't appropriate signs. The cottage was nice inside. It could have been cleaned better. We enjoyed the hot tub. The bed was comfortable. It would be a nice for hunters or fishermen. It wasnt worth the money. We won't be coming back.
Owner's Response: Yes, Barbara in housekeeping does a great job at keeping the place clean and both beds are brand new pillow top queen mattresses so I'm sure you got really good sleep especially with 500 thread count sheets. The neighbors in the distance are pretty far away, and being in such a remote area usually guests find a little comfort in seeing. The driveway is flat and wide. I've driven our huge trailer back in there when we furnished the cottage without any trouble but with all the rain we had that week maybe that caused some issues. In addition to step by step directions that uses your cars odometer to get you to the cabin there's a road side sign with Mtn View Cottages name on it, that's about all we can do to get you there safely. Had you all not forgotten my directions I'm sure you would have found the place easier. With all the discounts & facebook coupon you receive an excellent price cheaper than a motel 6. I don't know where you could stay for less. And as you can see from our other reviews everyone else really enjoys the place. I understand that you had a falling out up there with each other. I'm sorry to hear that. But lets not take it out on the cottage. That's between you 'all, not us.

Getting away from the city!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 29, 2012
  • Stayed: Nov 2012
We spoke to Melody who had a last minute cancellation. If you are looking to get away from a hectic city life, this is the perfect place! 25 min from Boone, NC. We had planned to go to TN, but ended up spending more time in NC as the Cottage is on the TN/NC border. The cottage is super clean, and has all the basics. I would advise you to bring extra towels and anything special you use at home that you can't live without! We met the owner when we first arrived, very nice Man (sorry I am horrible with names) We visited Grandfather Mountain and hiked at Julian Price Memorial Park, MP 297. **Blueridge Parkway**
Try to arrive at the cottage before It gets dark, It will be easier to find, and follow Melody's directions.
Recommended for:  Adventure Seekers, Pet-friendly, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for all your compliments. So glad you 'all had a great time, enjoyed the area and got to take advantage of so many places to see. Your right the local vacation villages like Boone and Blowing NC aren convenient and wonderful places to enjoy. Know that we look forward to your return trip and hope to see you one day soon in the very near future. You too can expect a return guest discount. Take care, Melody
