We felt like we were all alone at the top of the world. Had lots of room in the house for the 13 of us. It was very rustic, but had all the modern conveniences. We had a week of rainy, drizzly weather but found when we went down the mountain, the weather was much more agreeable. So the rain didn't deter us from hiking, ziplining, biking, visiting Biltmore, Chimney Rock. Thoroughly enjoyed the non family members who visited 5 times--the bears. Saw a family of mother and 3 cubs enjoying peaches from the tree near the deck----we watched from the safety of the second floor deck. Owners responded to any questions quickly.
