Review Submitted: November 22, 2009 Date of Stay: October 2008

We stayed at the cabin the first weekend in October. Yes the driveway is steep, but we managed just fine. My family loves this place! First, I really enjoyed talking with Patti, who is very nice. The cabin was clean and well taken care of. Our dogs sure did love adventuring around the property and going down the trail and to the water. It is a beautiful area that the cabin is in, peaceful, but yet not far from Boone and other areas. We only stayed two nights and wish we would have stayed at least a week. We plan on going back to the cabin. I have recommended this place to my friends. I can't wait to go back!!!!! Patti, thanks for sharing your wonderful place!!!

Absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely enjoyed it! The cabin is totally secluded but just close enough to town to enjoy food & shopping. Our dogs very much enjoyed running throughout the woods and trails too. The cabin itself was beautiful, fully stocked with everything we needed. We didn’t bring an axe (couldn’t find one either) to make a fire so we just ended up buying 1 pack of wood to make a small fire. Which was fine with us. The only complaint I had was the bed. It’s very hard and stiff and for someone who already has some back problems I wouldn’t suggest sleeping on it. I ended up sleeping on the couch. We would love to come back but I’ll definitely bring a mattress top or something next time. The driveway is steep but we managed just fine without using 4 wheel drive. And this is just to make families with kids aware. There is a huge glass wall/window above the front door that birds fly into. We had to explain the circle of life (toddler version) to our little one morning we stayed. The others we just secretly took care of it. So just be aware you may wake up to a bird on the deck. But overall our experience was wonderful. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your lovely Graysland!

All our needs were thoughtfully met

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very comfortable and well equipped. The driveway was a bit daunting, but it was well maintained and doable. While it turned out to be more expensive than we originally thought (taxes, cleaning fee and a hefty "service fee")! I would definitely recommend this property!

Cabin is tucked away and quiet. Driving there is exciting, but take your time. Great stay

Secluded and peacefull

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our stay this past weekend. Even though it's off the "beaten path" a little bit it's still perfectly situated in what I believe is one of the top 5 areas of the Appalachian mountains to visit.

Review

The house was lovely and very comfortable although missing a few items such as dishwasher detergent and hand soap. Also, because I left on a Wednesday, I had to either take my own trash with me or be charged an extra fee in addition to the cleaning fee. The biggest deterrent though was the driveway. My car does not have 4WD and I could not make it up the long, steep, and rutted gravel-drive even in low gear.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review.... Hmm...we do supply dish washer detergent as well as regular dish detergent. I'll look into why you did not have the dishwasher detergent available. Unfortunately trash pick up (GDS) discontinued service to our street years ago. My housekeeper cannot take bags of trash from the many cabins she cleans in a day. This is noted in the rental agreement, not a surprise. The driveway gets graded a couple times a year. Folks unaccustomed to driving in the mountains tend to spin tires and cause rutting more quickly. I had the driveway graded while I was there last week and we packed it down pretty good ourselves. We do not have 4WD. I guess we're just accustomed to driving in the mountains....

Main Street, Blowing Rock is approximately 4 miles away. ASU about 10 miles. Everything you could possibly want to do or see is within a 15-30 minute drive.
