About Rebecca

We love our vacation get-away and want to share it with you! Serenity Mountain Cabin is a peaceful, relaxing place where we have spent countless vacations with our kids, exploring the southern mountains. Our boys love the hiking and rafting opportunities here, as well as the quiet evenings grilling on the porch or playing pool with friends. We invite you to take advantage of our rental to do the same!

Rebecca purchased this cabin in 2006

Guestbook comments from the owner

This cabin was the perfect romantic getaway! The seclusion and magnificent surroundings blew us away! We had everything we needed and then some. From the front deck, we saw deer in the evenings and a bear!!! We will definitely be back. You (the owners) were a pleasure to work with.

Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The was the best vacation that I can ever remember. It was nice and peaceful. We went with another couple and we spent more time on the front porch than inside of the cabin. Everyday after being out site seeing my husband would come back to the cabin and nap on the front porch. The owners of the cabin were the GREATEST to work with. Plan to stay there again next summer! If you are thinking of visiting Blue Ridge, look no further! Very nice if you still want to be close to shops! Must visit Lake Blue Ridge and tube down the Ocoee River! I could just go on and on! REALLY LOVED MY STAY AT THIS CABIN!

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable week at the Serenity Mountain Cabin. The cabin is comfortable and roomy, and the location was perfect. From the gas fireplace to the hot tub, everything was great. Even had a family of six deer visit one morning. Was fun to watch them meander by through the woods. Thanks for sharing your mountain escape Rebecca!

Woodsy Wonderland

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I are senior citizens who live in the city. Serenity Mountain Cabin is a comfortable, woodsy retreat. Loved the spacious porch and rocking chairs. The king-size bed in the master suite has a comfy mattress; we slept well! When the temperature fell to 40, the heat came on without any hitches. This cabin is near so many sweet mountain towns, apple orchards and wineries. We never lacked for things to do. The owners communicate very easily to give necessary support.

Just OK

  • 2 of 5

We arrived quite late in the evening to the property, and were a bit startled while unpacking our car to see that the neighbor had come over to the house. He let us know that the owners didn't tell him that there would be guests, and made us feel a bit awkward. We introduced ourselves, and let ourselves into the house. It's a house, not a cabin. Wooden beam ceilings do not a cabin make. Pots and pans are very banged up and old. The beds were saggy, the linoleum in the bathroom was cracked and showing age. The bedding was musty. Be that as it may, the house was not difficult to get to, and only about 15 minutes from downtown Blue Ridge. I suspect because the house is for sale, no improvements will be made to this property. We've had much nicer rentals for the price, but they were a further distance from town. I guess it comes down to what's important to your family.

We stayed at this property in the beginning of October 2016. It was amazing. It was secluded, yet accessible. The views were gorgeous. When there were times where we couldn't figure out where things were, or how they worked, the owners were so easy to reach. They also checked on us from time to time. Location is great, the owners are great, views are spectacular. It was a wonderful, but quick vacation.

Not impressed and not near water

  • 2 of 5

We arrived and upon arrival we realized it is only three true bedrooms and they are using older blankets because they smelled.

Also it wasn't cleaned we recleaned the cabin. Next we had family visit but not stay over and they wanted to bill us because we had family stay late, $10 a person. Which they rented a cabin down the street or lived in the area and were just visiting, so beware they have neighbors spy but not ask questions.

Also they tried to say we smoked but no one in the house smokes and tried to bill us for that. Also becareful when you follow their list of house rules and undress all the bed because even if you didn't not use it and it smells awful they seem to try to bill you by how many beds you undress or towels you use.

Also not a water front property nor 1000 feet from water, on a mountain and stream way down at the bottom where you come in, so no fishing.

Owner's Response: Most guests who stay at Serenity are awesome and treat the cabin as they would their own home. Once in a while, however, we have the unfortunate experience of an unscrupulous and dishonest renter who packs the cabin with unpaid guests and leaves behind an awful mess. This review, a work of fiction, is retaliation for our withholding part of the guest's deposit. The guests booked a 3-night stay at our cabin for 5 guests. Our base rate is for 6 guests, with a nominal charge of $10/day for additional guests. After the guests left, the cleaning service found the cabin filthy, with trash, food, cigarette butts, bed linens and towels strewn throughout on the floors, counters and tables . The cleaners sent us photos of the 15 huge bags of garbage the renters generated in 3 days! The guests used 12 beds, including 2 sofa beds and spare rollaways. All bed linens and towels had been used. With the next guests expected in five hours, the cleaning service had to call in an extra employee to deal with the mess. Instead of charging the guests $180 for the 6 extra people, we discounted the charges and deducted $90 from their damage deposit, with no objection from the guest. Serenity's non-smoking policy is clearly stated on our listing and check-in instructions. The guests left cigarette butts on the floor and the cabin smelled of cigarette smoke. Our neighbor-caretaker told us the guests had parked overnight an SUV blocking the private road that leads uphill to the cabin's driveway. This despite the fact that the cabin has parking for at least 6 vehicles! The guests' SUV could have prevented the neighbor from driving out and EMS/fire trucks from getting through in case of emergency -- a dangerous situation! The caretaker is helpful when a guest needs assistance -- lighting the fireplace, adjusting hot tub settings, or even jump-starting a vehicle -- and lets us know on the rare occasion a guest endangers the safety of others. As explained in our listing, the cabin has 4 bedrooms as well as a small child’s room, and 2 pull-out couches. Our listing clearly states that the creek is a 5-10 minute walk from the cabin. We do our best to accommodate our guests' needs, and ask guests to contact us immediately if they encounter a problem. It should be clear form past reviews that we respond promptly to guest concerns and questions. That this guest did not contact us about the allegations in her review, but instead chose to abuse our cabin and our hospitality, says it all.
