First Stay not the Last...we are still pinching ourselves, was this place really real!? Georgina, or should I say " Auntie Georgina", you made us feel like family. On our arrival day your ranch was hammered by rain! We approached the road at the bottom of Fines Creek Rd to find a tree in the road, a mini mud slide, volunteer Fire Fighters, an old diesel fuel tank and so began our family adventure. We had no idea what to expect as we pulled down the long drive. We came to the welcome gate where you greeted and showed us through the house. I wanted to welcome YOU in to stay when you said you were camping in a tent up the road African style!! We, in your beautiful, luxurious comforts. You truly are a Hostess Angel! Down to every simple detail, beautiful charm, fresh flowers, candles, pristine clean. We felt as if we were you first guests exploring our temporary escape. To read this guest book and hear other "family" pleasure stories is fantastic! I want to fully express how you have blessed our family and others. Please know this is an exceptional out reach of love. We are from Florida, so being in your mountains does give you a feeling of being closer to God!
We had daily hikes through your impeccable trails. We groomed Lola and Nikita. We journeyed through the Blue Ridge Parkway and found some amazing waterfalls. We will be back. I still wish we had invited you to stay. I am sure you have fantastic stories! You are a true pioneer.

What a beautiful and serene place to stay and celebrate our 45th Anniversary. We feel very grateful for having this opportunity. Also what a personal touch to receive such a beautiful bouquet upon arrival.
we explored the property and found it so beautiful and natural. Loved the plants, the mountains, the weather, the mountain streams- almost all to ourselves. The porch was so relaxing to enjoy.
Interior of property shows your refined taste-just the right touch and the furniture was so comfortable. Thank you, so lovely.
We wish you well on your ownership of this pristine property. May it bring you much peace and comfort for many years. Thank you very much again for this wonderful opportunity and experience.
If your property is available in the future, we would love to return and bring our grandson. He would love it too.

There are many fine properties listed on VRBO .. not as many that are gated, and still
fewer that have 400 acres of private property, complete with hiking trails. Maybe there is only one.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Milky Way cabin. Western North Carolina is very scenic. But some days, we didn't even feel the need to leave the cabin, and we didn't. All we needed was a good fire and that view from the porch.

If you look at the comments below, you will only see 5 star reviews. There is a reason for that. A previous reviewer said it best: "You will remember this property long after you have departed through the gate." So true.
