About Michael Hinson

I am a small business owner in Rock Hill, SC. I spent my formative years in Rock Hill attending middle school and high school. From there, I went to Clemson University and graduated in 1999. Go Tigers! I bought into the family business in 2008 the year after I purchased the cabin.

Michael Hinson purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Michael Hinson chose Tennessee

The primary appeal of this property was its LOCATION! I love that it is close to the parkway. Not only is it close to the parkway, it's centrally located on the parkway. Additionally, I like the coziness and openness of the cabin. The view isn't so bad either!

Very nice property.

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice cabin. Kitchen extremely well equipped. Lady traveling with me is gourmet cook and she was very impressed. Wanted to take some of decor home. LOL. Didn't give five stars because of some cosmetic issues, mostly caused by fact this is a well lived in cabin. Owner very helpful and attentive. Easily reached and responds quickly when needed. Would not hesitate to rent this cabin again.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was really nice. Lots of room for our reunion. The kids especially enjoyed the air hockey and pool table. It was a short drive to town yet we felt like we were in the woods. Loved the hot tub. Beds were comfortable. We loved it!!

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Best of Times cabin! The air hockey and pool table were big hits with both kids and adults! Hot tub and pool were both very nice as well! Loved that the cabin was fairly close to the Parkway also. Would definitely recommend!

Best of Times was really everything we needed for our stay. It had a warm and comfortable homey feel

  • 4 of 5

The property was very clean and well maintained. The listing for the Best of Times was very accurate. For larger groups this is the only way to travel. You get the peacefulness of the mountains and the nearness of restaurants, stores and activities. We especially liked Mel's Diner. I would recommend this place to anyone. Loved it .

Great Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We loved the cabin, it was clean, well- stocked, and the owner was accessible and easy to deal with. HOWEVER, there was a big problem with the 3-month-old thermostat for the heat pump (also 3 months old). We could not keep the upper floor cool. We would set it on 69 or 70, but it never got cooler than 74. Also, it would self-adjust to 76 to 80 when we were out, when we were in, and while we slept. We took turns manually adjusting control both day & night. Nights were very uncomfortable for those of us on top floor. Except for this issue we would say 5 STARS.

Owner's Response: I do apologize for the issue you had with the AC set points. My maintenance person checked the unit and thermostat and found both to be in good working order. With that in mind, I contacted the company that installed the unit and thermostat and told them the scenario. They said most likely the renter before your group activated (which is not an easy thing to do apparently!) the "run schedule" for the programmable thermostat. So, at pre-determined times during the day, the set point would change in accordance with what the set point was supposed to be (according to the "schedule"). I had the same contractor go out and de-activated this feature, so this is not something that will happen again. I am very happy you had a good time with the exception of the set point issues. Fortunately, the issue has been rectified and should never happen again!
