3rd times a charm!

  • 5 of 5

Third year in a row staying at this property and it's a no brained for us! If you are looking for a well stocked place to spend a wonderful week, look no further! We came later this year and enjoyed seeing everything so green.

Things we love about this cabin:

*ease of renting...prompt response and love the addition of PayPal as an option

*fluffy towels! I don't know where you get them or what you wash them in but they are wonderfully soft and in abundance

*well stocked! We want for nothing while we are here. Tons of outdoor games, plenty of chairs, and a great fire pit. Also every plate, pan, bowl or utensils you could need

*the hot tub and garden tub are our favorite places

*our beagles favorite place is the many places to explore and be a dog!

*and finally the sounds of the stream. Nothing gets better than falling asleep to the sounds of it!

So thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

beautiful piece of heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this cabin! The rooms are large and beds are comfortable. The kitchen is so much bigger than it looks. The covered porch area was comfortable and seating plentiful. My favorite spot was the swing, enjoying the sound of the rushing creek! The owner provides tons of towels and linens and the laundry is so convenient. I have stayed in many rentals and this was, by far, the most well-equipped home we have rented. Can't wait to come back!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to share! That swing was one of the best decisions made when we were choosing outdoor furniture. It's everyone's favorite! I'm happy our home met all your needs, and hope, maybe, you'll get to experience our great summers on the creek next time! Thanks Again, Cathy

An awesome New Years Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay! Our only regret was not being able to stay longer! The pictures really don't do this cabin the justice it deserves! The amenities and features of the rental were top notch. Everyone in our group loved it. Though we spent most of our time inside, we did enjoy spending time walking by the creek one afternoon. The secluded location made for a perfect quiet New Years weekend away from the hustle of our daily lives. Thanks for the awesome get away. We look forward to returning one day!

Owner's Response: We sincerely appreciate your most complimentary words. Our family has celebrated many New Years here, and I agree, it makes for the best! We really love sharing our home, especially to folks that enjoy it the way we do. Please come back when you can enjoy the creek and walking trails. Thanks Again! Cathy & Family

What a treat our stay was!

  • 5 of 5

Our third trip to North Carolina mountains, our first in this area, but may not be the last. This property had everything we needed and love. The facilities were clean, complete, and comfortable. In the ten days we left only twice to meet our daughter and to get groceries. We enjoyed hiking the trails, "rock walking" in the stream, and just relaxing and reading to the sound of the rushing water. The swing and hammock were favorites. Thanks for making a very special retreat for our 2016 stay! P.S. We are curious if Amos and Martha are ancestors of yours.

Owner's Response: Thanks Michael, for your complimentary review. We can tell you spent a lot of time exploring the acreage, as you found Martha & Amos! They aren't relatives, but my husband and son go visit them each time we are there. Hope you will return to Beech Creek soon. Cathy

Second time as good as the first!

  • 5 of 5

We were here last year for the first time. We loved the place so much that there wasn't any question that we would return! Amazing stay and absolutely love the house! We explored more of the property with our beagle and found things we missed last year. Renting was a breeze and the house has everything you would need to set up shop for the week. I love soaking in the garden tub and my husband likes to relax in the hot tub after a day of exploring the area. Our only question for next year is do we want to come later in the year to see the place all green from springtime!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Tara, for sharing! It's special as well, to ourselves and our children. I hope you can make it in the summer months, although, there really isn't a "bad" time of year on Beech Creek. Hope to see you again next year! Cathy & Family
