Guestbook comments from the owner

Our mountain weekend was just perfect. We really enjoyed your lovely home and it was laid out just great for our family. It was our grand daughter's first Easter and we were able to get some great photos in the rocking chair downstairs. We enjoyed the hikes to the creek, the views, the swing – just everything. Thanks so much.

Perfect Fall Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay with Mike and Beverly Roseman. As with our first visit, they were very accommodating and everything was perfect. We wanted to get away for a relaxing, peaceful week of leaf viewing. Highrock Haven fit the bill perfectly. It was quiet, peaceful and the views are amazing. The home is well equipped and clean. It is so inviting, you feel it is home away from home. The properties of High Rock are pet friendly. Our dog had a great time laying on the deck and exploring the surrounding property. Highrock Haven has a nice size yard for kids or pets to play. We spent most of our time on the Blue Ridge Parkway, and the fall foliage was spectacular. We went to Mt. Mitchell and also Mt. Pisgah. We took a lot of gorgeous pictures. We also went to the Folk Art Center, and as always I bought too many local crafts. I highly recommend Black Mountain and Highrock Haven to anyone who wants a fantastic mountain experience. We will definitely be back as soon as possible. Thanks for another great visit!

Excellent First Impression

  • 3 of 5

My family and I just returned from our stay and we are agreed that the first impression was awesome--great views; large, pretty cabin; nice amenities; & close proximity to town.

Two things that were disappointing:

1) the pull-out couches were filthy & gross. It appears if they were never washed. This detail rendered the pull-out couches completely unusable so two of our family members had to sleep on the floor in sleeping bags that they had to go out and purchase from town.

2) The property manager requires you to wash all towels and remove all sheets before you leave. There is a fixed cleaning fee/line item, but what exactly does this cover? I can understand straightening up and doing your own dishes, but to make the tenants wash towels & remove linens...? It's unheard of (and we've stayed at many cabins) & those specifics were never mentioned initially. We spent the night before and the morning of departure cleaning, which made the tail end of our trip stressful and not fun. We will probably never come back to this cabin, but return to one of our usual spots.

Owner's Response: So sorry about the pull out sofa couches being dirty. Upon your awareness, I wish you would have communicated this with me immediately so I could have sent my cleaning staff over there to address the situation. The sofa couches have been addressed and already replaced with brand new mattresses and mattress covers and new sheets......As far as washing towels and stripping sheets goes, this is a common practice found in most high end vacation rentals, as I have been in this business for over 12 years. We ask our guests ( if they have time ) to wash their towels especially if there are new guests arriving on that same day. The linens are stripped and put at the foot of the bed to let the cleaning staff know they were used and need to be washed.......The cleaning fee covers a lot more than just washing linens, as it still took my cleaning staff and myself over 6 hours to clean and detail the home and hot tub and prepare it for the next guests. Also, when you have 8 kids staying there, it is not unheard of for adults to have to clean and straighten up after them the night before and the next morning before departure. It would be unheard of if any kids could clean and straighten up after themselves! I am sorry that you will not return, but it is only the second 3rd star review out of over 150 reviews!

"family hiking trip and wedding weekend"

  • 5 of 5

The log cabin was so beautiful!! Everything was in excellent condition, sturdy and the decor was very nice. Also, the cleanliness was amazing; the floors, smooth and shiny even under the beds(I peeked because I couldn't believe how pristine the floors were). The location was perfect ...we could drive about 25-30 minutes to Asheville for dinner, then come home to High Rock Haven and be completely secluded and have the most beautiful view of the stars at night sitting in the hot tub(which was also immaculately clean). We did the Catawba Falls hike one morning which was fantastic. That evening we went to a wedding at Lake Eden, then came home to the lovely stars and view of the Milky Way,(from the hot tub). We drove to Mt. Mitchell the next morning and hiked the Balsam Trail there, also amazing! The day we left , we hiked Elizabeth's Path at Montreat College (10 minutes away)to get a little exercise for us and the dogs before getting on the road. The mountains and nature are so beautiful in Black Mountain and the accommodations enhanced everything about our wonderful trip. We want to come again and stay longer because we read in the welcome book that there is a common picnic area by a creek and a small pond that you can walk to right down the path. Thanks for sharing your wonderful cabin with us Mike⛰🇺�🇸�
