About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Looking for a gorgeous, relaxing cabin? THIS IS IT! Yearling is the perfect choice for your anniversary, birthday or honeymoon celebration. Such a wonderful retreat - some guests have said it is like having your own private spa! Yearling comes fully furnished - king-size bed, designer linens, outdoor hot tub by the noisy creek, front porch rockers to view/listen to the creek while sipping morning coffee, a picnic table on the hot tub deck under the trees; woodburning fireplace for that romantic evening fire, Hi-Def DirectTV satellite receiver, 32' Sony Hi Def LCD TV, and DVD. The Yearling offers an everything-you-need kitchen and a luxurious bathroom fully-appointed with all you could want - jacuzzi bath tub for two, double sink vanity and separate shower.

After a day of hiking/exploration, you may want the relaxation that only an outdoor hot tub can offer. Step down to the private deck by the incredible creek, where the hot tub and picnic table await. Or rock your cares away in the wood rockers on the covered porch. From either location you can see the creek that crosses this property. For the more adventurous guest - put on your boots and go wading! Some great ‘nooks and crannies’ among the boulders and rhododendron are right there on the Yearling property.

The Yearling is nestled on Laurel Creek road in a very natural, peaceful and private setting. PERFECT for Honeymooners, Anniversaries, and Birthdays - Any SPECIAL Occasion!

25th Anniversary Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Yearling for our 25th Anniversary and enjoyed every second! The cabin was clean, the kitchen was well stocked and the grill was ready to go! The cabin is very cozy and romantic, with all of the details you would want for a secluded get away. From the fireplace which you can see from the bedroom,, to the hot tub, jacuzzi bath, and sound system/tv/dvd, everything was perfect!! The creek behind the cabin and the snow falling all around was just the cherry on top! The booking process was easy and the we can't wait to return!!

Loved it!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I'm writing this review (almost a year later) because we're looking at another cabin to rent for a few says for our 1 year anniversary! We love the mountains and I just happened to run across this cabin where we honeymooned. I saw it had 4.5 stars and wanted to know what person scored this a low rating. And it seems it was almost 2 months after our stay! I can't imagine in 2 moths this beautiful place could just basically fall apart. I just wanted to say that rating (dated Nov 2013) is NOT accurate and those people are VERY picky- my husband and I didn't we didn't to leave it was so beautiful and there is a Creek I'm the back yard. we loved it and we also read many memories in the booklets for guests to share. We loveeeeed our stay here and so would you!

"Luxury" does not apply.

  • 3 of 5

The listing description for this cabin is accurate, except for the word "luxury." We have leased cabins over a 12 yr period, and we are willing to pay good money; however, comparing what we paid vs. what we received did not quite add up. (1) the bed slept well, but bedclothes/sheets/pillows were old and worn. When we removed the pillowcases, both pillows had yellow stains on them. Ugh! (2) the sofa should be replaced. It's springs are shot, making it sag toward the middle (uncomfortable!) (3) fireplace worked well, but the fireplace screen (as reported to property management) was torn at the top in 2 places, making it a fight to close. (4)the outside of the cream colored kitchen cabinets, especially around the door handles, are dirty from much use (looks bad); (5) the oven door handle was broken, but it worked. (6) Property management alerted us to bring paper towels and bar soap, and it's a good thing we did -- we arrived to one 3/4 roll paper towel; no paper napkins, ... and (come on), for what we paid the owner could not provide toothbrush holders or soap dishes? I used coffee mugs next to the bathroom sink to hold both during our stay. (7) Eating utensils were nice, but serving utensils (spatulas, etc.) were old and knives in the butcher block were dull. Where is your cutting board? We never found it. (8) although the cabin is clean at first inspection, there's some areas that need attention (under the kitchen sink, above the stove, windowsills and shelves). The Jacuzzi tub in bathroom is very nice, but the control knobs should be replaced -- the facings are missing and they look tacky. Central heating worked well; shower and tub had plenty of hot water; towels were good quality; dishwasher/stove/fridge/icemaker worked fine, but fridge motor was LOUD at night. Washer/dryer have seen better days and substantial lint/dirt buildup behind them (fire hazard?). We never used the hot tub, so cannot comment. The Yearling is a nice cabin; good location, and quiet, but not really secluded. We could see the cabins on either side of us, but didn't see any people. In my opinion, attention to detail is lacking in this cabin... better quality rugs on the floor and more inviting decorations throughout would make it more attractive. Also, this is the first cabin we've been too that didn't give attention to some "bare essentials" in the kitchen (i.e., cooking oil or spices). Please consider addressing these concerns vs. what you charge. Thank you.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

We just came home from a very relaxing weekend at this cabin. Talk about a much needed break! We were looking for something that would allow us to completely escape from the craziness of our daily life, and this is just what the doctor ordered. Very secluded, very romantic, and looked exactly like the pictures. It was spotlessly clean, and they provide virtually everything you need.

We went in to Banner Elk (it's about a 15 min drive) each night for dinner, and did some hiking in the area. I highly recommend this to any couple looking for a romantic weekend to reconnect!

My wife and I stayed here back in Oct. 2008 for our Honeymoon and it was perfect. Very quiet and secluded...very romantic as well, that hot tub is great on crisp fall evenings. We took in a few of the local holiday festivals and nearby shopping. We also got to enjoy some of the nearby parks, like Grandfather Mt. and Blowing Rock. But we were both so very pleased at the end of the day to return to this little paradise. We WILL be back...and I can't wait.
