Calm, beautiful mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

This place is exactly what we were looking for to escape daily life for a few nights. The house is nice and secluded, situated on a beautiful mountain which you can hike all day. The little town near by is great for meals, ice-cream, and fun. The home is extremely clean and inviting and Lisa and John are so nice while also giving you all the space you are looking for coming to a place like this. We enjoyed our stay so much, we will most definitely be back. Perfect!

Charming home!

I had a lovely time staying here. Lisa and John were very accommodating and I could not have asked for better hosts! The break from the internet was so refreshing. I am excited to stay here again!

Secret Gem

Enjoyed our stay. Love the old time house and all the woodwork. Felt like home. Was off grid with no internet or cell service and surprisingly didn't miss it. LOL

Beautiful views and sweet community

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed everything about the home. The kids enjoyed the big yard and little creek in the front yard. The cool nights were perfect! We opened the windows to cool down the house and even grilled out one night. We visited Linville Caverns at Lisa's suggestion and was beyond thrilled at the majestic creations underground! We also ate at Louise's country food restaurant in Linville...very good. Burnsville itself is a quaint town and we enjoyed the ice cream shop and Blind Squirrel brewing pub. Thank you for renting your home. It perfectly suited our needs. (side note: Lisa had given us a call regarding a plumbing issue and offered a full refund to avoid any issues. We decided to go ahead with our arrangements. We did not have any problems with the tastes delicious!...there was no sediment in either the tub or the kitchen sink. Thank you for being so forthright with us and we are thankful for such sweet people to rent from.)

Quiet Romantic Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This beautiful house was perfect for our weekend getaway. I loved being disconnected while there. The drive up to the house was so pretty too. My husband got a chance to explore the property and found a beautiful clearing close to the top of the mountain while I was dropping the kids off with my parents. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to check it out with him. The bed off of the living room was extremely comfortable, we didn't try the others, so I don't know how they slept. The washer & dryer were great & very efficient. There are a few things I would improve or change however.... 1- Better maintenance of the property, the front porch was overgrown and we were unable to use some of the seating due to that. 2- Turn up the setting on the hot water heater. We had to turn the hot water all the way on for the water to be warm enough for us. 3- The plumbing in the bathroom is off, cold is hot, hot is cold....that gave us a rude awakening the first morning we were there. 4- This is not something I would necessarily change, but something to consider....updating the TV's to ones that are compatible with having a laptop plugged in to it. We didn't get a chance to watch TV other than the first night we were there. But, it would have been nice to hook our laptop up and access Netflix or Hulu.

John & Lisa were wonderful & very hospitable. They did a great job putting up with the million questions I had. lol We will definitely be back.

A Wonderful Stay - 10/13 to 10/16/2016

  • 5 of 5

What a nice, comfortable welcoming cabin in the woods! Although my stay at Peace was not for a vacation, this home certainly provided me with the perfect place to accomplish my task at hand! I was in Burnsville to celebrate my daughter's wedding and I was making the wedding cake. Peace provided me with the room, peaceful surroundings, and calm that I needed to bake a beautiful cake for the wedding, Working for many hours in the kitchen, I can truly say without a doubt, that this vacation home was immaculately clean and well stocked. The other rooms were also so well cared for. In speaking with the owner, several days prior to our arrival, she said her rule was to always prepare Peace to the same standards that she cared for her own home. And she does! Thank you for the short, but very nice stay at Peace and for helping make my daughter's wedding day a beautiful success.
