Quiet mtn retreat
Submitted: December 3, 2011
Stayed: November 2011
Nice well equiped cabin with all listed ammenities.Within driving distance to various activities.CLose to Va and NC where you would need to drive to for activities as this setting is pretty quiet.
WIthin an hour of HAwknest for ziplining ,which was the frosting on the cake for this trip.Go, it's worth it.
WE would have liked to be closer to more activities.Nice place to stay
On the negative side: phone rings @ every 20 mins,When we answered it,it sounded like a fax line.SO, we left it off the hook for the week.
The smoke alarm in the kitchen went off everytime you cooked anything or used the toaster..Besure to have a towel on hand to wave back and forth till it stops.
The general cleaning was fine.But, it needed a deep cleaning.The blinds,window ledges and windows were really bad. I cleaned a few windows while there and the bathrm mirrows.
Alot of flies and crickets in there.And I was stung by a hornet that had hidden underneath my pillow.
But, overall it's a nice place to stay for sometime quiet down time.
Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your remarks know they are most appreciated. The only way we can improve our cabins is to hear from our guests. Bringing anything to our attention is most appreciated. You were provided with an extensive welcome package that points out the various area activities and the milage to all neighboring vacation villages is posted on our website and reiterated again in this welcome package. Yes, Hawksnest is the furthest away activity and agree with you that its still worth the drive. There's also plenty to do in Boone NC which offers Ski Beech, shopping, dining and is only a 25 mins drive. So sorry to hear that the windows weren't up to par, and that the phone kept ringing. All three are news to us and will be corrected immediately. Yes, wasps are nasty little creatures and have gotten me a few times before. Even with regular extermination they are still hard to combat. Know too over This Thanksgiving holiday & all holidays, all our phone lines are answered promptly. I wish we had heard from you and had the opportunity to come by and correct immediately rather that hearing about it after the fact, of course that was your choice. We look forward to hearing from you again one day soon so that we can offer you the best in accommodations along with your senior citizen discount.
