Awesome NC vacation
Submitted: January 7, 2013
Stayed: December 2012
We stayed in this beautiful home from Dec 26th 2012 to Jan 2nd 2013. It was one of the best winter vacations we have ever had. We had 9 in our party, 4 of them were kids. We had everything we expected and more: everything was very well thought by the owner, who was also our next door neighbor. She had hand created those fire starters for us and a beautiful carrot cake was in the refrigerator when we arrived. You can literally just bring your toothbrush.
The home was very spacious, all the appliances were brand new, both kitchens had everything you needed to cook your own meals. There was no cell phone reception but with the wireless network, it was so easy to get all the devices connected to internet in no time so we were able to communicate through Viber, Skype, text messaging without issues. Our landlord was so nice to offer us her landline anytime we wanted. The logs for the fireplace were already stacked in front and in case you ever run out, your landlord is there again for you! The access to the home may be a bit difficult in case it snows since it is on top of a narrow road however we did not have any issues and we enjoyed the privacy. As far as the area attractions, Sapphire Valley Resort which is 6 mile away is a great place to learn skiing and enjoy snow tubing. Waterfalls in Pisgah and Dupont national parks are well worth seeing. Highlands is also a small town worth visiting and enjoy the waterfalls. The closest grocery store is Ingles, 8 miles away, therefore we made our shopping for the whole week. If you are looking for more serious skiing, Ober Gatlinburg Tennessee is only 2 hours away (closer than Sugar Mountain) and the scenic views of Great Smoky Mountains are breathtaking. Asheville NC is also 1.5 hour away and beautiful.
We have enjoyed our stay a lot and we are looking forward to returning again. This property is highly recommended to all who are looking to spend their winter vacation in beautiful NC mountains.
