Review Title: Fun, Beautiful cabin

Date of arrival: 23Mar2012

My Review:


I can categorically state that we enjoyed every aspect of our stay at the cabin!

The cabin is beautiful, has great amenities (including a small waterfall about 50 feet from the cabin), and my family and I throughly enjoyed ourselves.

One of the things that most impressed me though was the attention to detail with our reservation right up to the packet of information we received just prior to our stay.

Scrapbooking, Relaxation, adventure, so much fun!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time we had! I'm a passionate scrapbooker and decided that some friends and I should escape to do a scrapbooking retreat. I found this wonderful home and fell in love with it! It had plenty of space for us to have our own rooms. A huge table for us to scrap and additional table top for all our supplies... When I saw the great game room below I thought my teen girls would probably love their own mini vacation with some of their friends. There was a total of 4 ladies and 4 teens. We hardly heard a peep from the kids! They were too busy hanging out below, in the hot tub and exploring the grounds with it's winding creek and mini waterfall... The community also has a lake and private rapids which made for some fabulous pictures that I can't wait to scrapbook! The wrap around porch with it's many rocking chairs was a peaceful outing to watch all the hummingbirds fly around it. The kids also enjoyed the fire pit that allowed us to build a pretty nice size fire.... the smores were yummy!! They even provide boots in different sizes to go and explore the creek so you would not get dirty or wet! On our way home we decided to visit Chimney Rock which was only 15min away... it was a sight to see. I can't wait to come back! The next time, it will be for more then 3nights!! :)

Thanks for everything!

Marcy, Andrea, Leila, Susan, Victoria, Travis, Tiffany and Keili from Orange Park Florida.

Fun in the Fall

  • 4 of 5

This was my first VRBO experience. We had a wonderful time. The cabin was everything as described. The setting was great, nice and secluded, yet easy access to Lake Lure, grocery store, etc. We enjoyed cooking, evenings rocking in large comfy chairs on the wrap around deck and topping it off with a very nice hot tub (in great condition). Our days were spent visiting Asheville for a day, a day at the Biltmore and a day hiking around the cabin. Asheville and the Biltmore are about an hour away, via very winding roads but beautiful scenery. Both are worth a day's visit.

Our only issue was we that we thought the fireplace was wood burning, but it turned out to be gas. When we arrived we couldn't get it to start. We contacted Todd, and he responded right away. He had someone come out the next morning to fix it, but we still couldn't get it going the next night. It really wasn't a big deal for us, because the evenings on the deck were by far the best. This is the only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars, probably better put at 4 3/4 stars. But what I appreciated was the immediate follow up by Todd.

The cabin had most anything you could need. You might want to bring some paper towels and a small bag of charcoal, that was all we had to run out for; the store is pretty close and is large and carries everything. The cabin was clean and well laid out for privacy and family time. We had 5 adults, but you could comfortably have 8 people. The bedrooms were very spacious and extremely comfortable. The mattresses, sheets and pillows were delightful. Hard to imagine in a cabin in the woods. It felt like a high-end hotel but surrounded by beautiful trees.

I would definitely recommend this property. My main complaint is that we were only there for 3 days, it should have been a week.

Would not recommend this rental.

I am sorry but I have to agree with all the negative reviews that have been written about this property. The property is in desperate need of some general maintenance issues. The road leading into the property is awful. It is a washboard, gravel road, that is appx. 1/2 mile. We regretted taking our Lexus sports car on that road. Thankfully we had a pick up truck in our group because we then had to haul our garbage out across the road appx. a mile total. The games and the video games were in need of an update. The maintenance people showed up unannounced and were working on the hot tub prior to our scheduled check out time. Those in our group that used the hot tub did enjoy it. The front door was not very secure simply because it is hard to lock from the inside and looks like it has been damaged from the exterior. Two of the dining room chairs broke while someone was sitting in them, it appeared that one had been repaired with glue previously. Thankfully no one was seriously injured. I loved the floor plan of the house itself but it has been neglected in cleaning, pest control, and overall upkeep. We will not be returning to this location.

Owner's Response: We are glad you loved the layout of our cabin, it is well suited for families, large and small. Our cabin is located in the forest with mountain roads. This means crushed gravel, which is a 'washboard' type of ride, but is ok for cars. We own sedans and have no problems with access, it is just dusty. We were just there this past weekend, our handyman fixed the front door, the issue was due to a sagging door, not external damage. Chairs have been repaired or replaced as necessary. The cabin and hot tub are cleaned and prepared before each guest arrives. We also have pest control service for the interior. We are unable to control pests that are outside due to the forest. If there was a specific video game guests would like to have, we always suggest that you bring or rent them. The maintenance people showed up to clean the hot tub, which is outside the cabin. Guests are not expected to leave until check out, which is 10am. For guests that have reservations or are considering to rent our cabin in the future, we ask that you read through all 77 of our 4 and 5 star reviews (including the review for immediately after this stay "Fun in the Fall') before you pass over making a reservation at Redbird Retreat. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us.
