Back again! My family and I spent the week in this lovely paradise. This is the second time I've been here; but the first time with my immediate family. They all loved it as much as I had hoped they would. The home is always so clean and welcoming. The owners are absolutely wonderful! Their priority is to make sure that you are comfortable, and they are only a phone call away, should you need anything. The cabin and property itself is completely private, and so quiet, yet you're only 10 to 15 minutes away from downtown Sparta. The river is literally steps from your front door, and the fishing is excellent! My family and I played corn-hole and croquet in the shade of the beautiful trees in the back yard. At night, we sat out on the large deck and played cards by the fireplace. Morning coffee was always enjoyed on the side deck, in the huge rocking chairs, as we watching the deer taking their morning stroll across the yard and down to the river for a drink of their own. Nature at its best! We also enjoyed kayaking while we were there, and playing in the creek that runs right beside the house. Morning, mid-day, or night; I don't know that I could choose which time period was more fun. Our entire week was absolutely incredible! Our typical vacation is 3 to 4 days because we all get so home sick, we don't really care to stay anywhere, any length of time. Not so with this trip. We stayed from Saturday to Saturday and when it came time to pack up and go home, none of us were ready to leave. And a note to the owners: Not only will we be back to vacation here at Lil' Piece of Heaven, but, should you ever consider selling, please let us know. We are seriously looking for a vacation home in that area, and this one is absolutely perfect!
Thanks again, for sharing your Lil' Piece of Heaven with us!!
4 generations of my family, from 4yrs to 85 yrs stay here for 2 weeks. It was perfect! The house had plenty of room for 5 adults and 4 children and we never felt crowded.
We all had fun exploring the creek on the property and it was music to the ears to listen to the water falls, whether sitting on the deck, soaking in the hot tub, playing games in the yard or sleeping at night.
Kayaking and tubing are easily done on the river and interesting towns are near by for exploring.
We found the home to be immaculate upon arrival and the caretaker showed up to clean the hot tub for us half way through our visit. The owner was very agreeable and addressed the one issue we had immediately.
We'll be back!
Indeed this property is a "lil piece of heaven"! We went with our children and had the most spectacular experience ever! Not only where the owners welcoming and attentive, but the "home" is immaculate with thought into every detail. They have everything you need. The home sits within beautiful scenery, magnificent sunrises and sunsets. The snow was amazing! My kids had a spectacular time. We had a fire in a different place each night and enjoyed it more and more each time. We can't thank you enough for your hospitality and for sharing such a beautiful piece of heaven on earth! We will definitely be back soon!!!!
Beginning with the amicable and attentive owner, who answered all our questions and was prompt in assisting us, this beautiful, charming cabin is everything you expect and much more. The description of the location was exact, the photos don't do justice to the detailed and well thought architecture; the cabin was in perfect condition when we arrived with flower arrangements in the rooms and common areas. What a nice, elegant touch! The house faces a fabulous lake, the serenity of the mornings and the spectacular sunsets were dreamy. We did indeed stayed at a "Lil Piece of Heaven". I recommend this property to anyone who wants to enjoy nature at its best, whether you go with your significant other for a nice, relaxing getaway or like we did, with friends and children. What a great time we had! We look forward to returning. Really, really beautiful scenery and great cabin.
Awesome vacation! The cabin is CLEAN, and very roomy. You have everything you need, right there in the home. The grocery store is conveniently located just 10 to 15 minutes away, in case you forget anything. My Mom, Sister, Sister-In-Law and I, had a girl's weekend here. We couldn't have asked for a better place to be. We didn't go fishing this time, but we certainly will next time! The cabin is right on the river, and the landscape is something you would find out of a 'Better Homes and Gardens' magazine! The pictures on the website do not do it justice. You need to go and make your own pictures and memories to even get a glimpse of the beauty of this place! We watched the chipmonks and squirels play in the yard, we heard the morning birds chirp as we had our coffee on the deck each morning, and we fell asleep to the sounds of the creek and multiple waterfalls that flow right beside of the cabin. In the evening, we chilled out in the hot tub and, at night, we roasted marshmellows at the fireplace. This was a trip that we will never forget! I could write a book about it, but you'd actually have to spend time there and see it for yourself to understand the magnitude of the serenity there. The owners are extremely nice and very helpful. I just got back a few hours ago and my husband, son and I are already looking at the calendar to make reservations for a family trip! No matter what the season, I'm sure your adventure here would be one that you will be talking about for years! We plan to make this place OUR vacation spot, as long as it is available. I almost hate to write a review so we could maybe keep this place a SECRET for ourself; but, honestly, it would be a shame for others not to have the opportunity to experience this place as we have! Appropriately named, it truely is a Lil Piece of Heaven!! WE WILL BE BACK, in the very near future!
This is an amazing place! A beautiful, quiet retreat with all the amenities. The owners are very responsive and patiently answered all of my questions, and there were many as this was our first VRBO rental! It is obvious that this is a special place to them. The cabin is clean, well-maintained and beautifully decorated. Yes, you really can hear the waterfall of the nearby stream from the deck! There is a wonderful view of the New River. The outdoor fireplace was a great place to gather and watch the deer in the back yard. Great family memories here! Nearby New River canoe/kayak rentals and winery tours. I highly recommend.
