Guestbook comments from the owner

What a Beautiful Home! We spent our first two nights on your sleeping porch. How wonderful! After seeing how lovely it was, we wished we had stayed a longer time. We hope to come again.

Elaine was very prompted answering my emails. The home was clean and well maintained. We spent most of our time on the deck with the fireplace. You feel like you are in a tree house. There were 7 adults and 4 small children. There was plenty of space for all of us. Will be coming back here again. Thanks Elaine for sharing you beautiful home with us. We had a great family vacation.

Just heavenly, and we'll be back ASAP to watch the leaves fall.

We've stayed at a number of VRBOs and this has been the best ever. The house is large and spacious and totally equipped with everything you could possibly need or want. There were only four of us, but it was delightful to have so much space to ourselves. The porches were the best and we spent all the time we could on them.

The nearby towns offer many pleasant and fun options for food, shopping and hiking the hills. But I enjoyed just sitting and reading on the porches. It would be a great place for a large group of family or friends to kick back. Everything about it is nicely done and the price is right. We will be back for the fall leaves.

Would love to win the lottery, buy it and never leave! Thanks for a great week Eleanor.

Expectations Exceeded At This Mountain Retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

When I first started looking for properties for my family for my sister's wedding I had a list of various family needs... Few places met all the needs & none compared to this incredible home. This was the perfect house! Additionally, homeowner was great to work with & very responsive to our needs.

My only regret is that I didn't have more time to enjoy the home, it is truly a magical place that you'll never want to leave! The river & dock were great for the afternoons & we added a rope swing for others to enjoy. The sleeping porch was the biggest hit providing lots of space to lounge & enjoy the treetops both day & night.

The quaint town of Saluda isn't far away if you do actually leave the house & has great cafes, shops, & the oldest grocery store in NC. Make sure you pick up some of their sage sausage!

This home is truly a treasure, so search no more!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for five nights for a family wedding in town and was a perfect solution. Everything was in good working order and very clean. Lots of space for a large group of people and excellent amenities. The only issue we had was getting a minivan down the driveway which was very steep and made of loose gravel and dirt. It was a bit muddy while we were there so getting down was fine but getting back up was a bit tough. We ended up parking at the top.

The Treehouse is great for large families!

  • 5 of 5

There were 8 of us until the weekend then a few more stayed and we had plenty of room! Our son got married nearby and we had a great week as a family. The college age kids loved the sleeping porch too! Owner was very helpful and the neighbor was very sweet as well. Kids and adults all loved seeing the wildlife and especially the tree frog that visited us on the deck one evening. Well stocked kitchen and linens. rather steep driveway but was able to park a small car at top when it rained really hard. Already talking about another visit here!

Lake Summit retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this beautiful house for a long weekend. If you like the outdoors, there is plenty to do for kids, teens and adults. Hiking, paddling or just relaxing on the screen porch. The owners were extremely accomodating. We will be back!
