We had a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the cozy cabin. It was very relaxing and comfortable. Our young boys enjoyed fishing on the pond. We saw plenty of fish but only caught 1. Nearby hiking, attractions, and Blowing Rock were great! A very convenient location to Blowing Rock and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

So Relaxing and Serene

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the Cottage by the Pond with my brother and his family for a birthday weekend getaway. We couldn't have been more pleased. The cottage had all the amenities we could have needed including fishing poles to use at the pond. Had a wonderful time fishing and using the paddleboat. We were a little concerned about not having air conditioning in this weather, but again, we couldn't have been more pleased. We slept with the windows open and could not believe how great having the fresh cool breeze coming in was. We slept better than we do at home! There was a wonderful breeze blowing and enjoyed spending time together sitting on the porch and talking. The pictures do not do this place justice. It is very private and quiet and gave us lots of opportunity to spend together and enjoy the surroundings. The cottage was immaculate and we all can't wait to come back again. Bob and Ginger are wonderful to deal with and made everything so easy for us. We have rented other places off vrbo before but this had to be the best yet! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful cottage with us.

magical cottage in the forest

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is like a magical cottage in the forest. It has everything you need even fishing rods and racks for roasting hot dogs or marshmellows. You dont need to take anything but your personal items and food. They even have coffee , some spices etc. We caught brim and bass in the pond and even saw a deer beside the pond one afternoon. Was a little afraid it would be hot with no a/c as we live where it is 100 +. But should not have worried , the fresh crisp air was wonderful. It has been a long time since I have slept with the windows open. Our dog loved it . We did not even have to keep him on a least when he when out. There is no traffic. Very quite and clean and very private. Looked listening to the sound of the birds. Loved having Wifi and there are two brand new flat screen tvs there if you have time to watch them. We also enjoyed meeting the owners and wish we had had more time to visit with them as they were a very nice and interesting couple. We will defnitely go back again . Maybe next time in the fall because I am sure it is beautiful then as well. Then we might try the fire pit and roast some hot dogs. Also enjoyed the horse shoes. We cooked steaks on the gas grill one night and there is also a charcoal grill there and even wood and a axe for the fire pit. Cant get it better than this is you want to be alone. Thanks from Buck , Rose, andTaz

Wonderful, private cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our 2nd visit to this cabin!! Always clean, kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need for cooking. If you want a private & quiet cabin, this one is for you. Far enough away from town & traffic, but close enough if you want to shop or walk. We love walking around Bass Lake, visiting Moses Cone, and of course the Tanger outlets! We will be back again! Thanks for sharing your cabin with us!!
