Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the most restful break in your cozy home .Only did one modest hike/walk around Bass Lake. Peggy nearly finished a big painting. Much reading and Olympics. Lots of good meals. Bought several things at Art in the Park.But, the best luck was total serendipity. We ran into a Charleston gallery owner. Spent some quality time with him and his wife. He asked Peggy to hang her oils in his gallery! So, you brought us good fortune.

When we made the decision to stay here we did look at the other reviews - we didn't expect it to be new but we relied on them to some extent - especially the cleanliness factor. After arriving it was evident that between the 2012 review and August 2014 some things had changed. The pictures showing the property are essentially correct. The furnishngs are two years older and their. condition has changed. The kitchen is very small with the dining table (small) separating it from the living room. The area is smaller than the picture conveys. The kitchen has very kittle storage, the pots and pans are scratched and old- the teflon coating is very bad in the skillet. A cast iron skillet had been put away with burnt food. To use it would have required scrubbing and re-seasoning to use it. The first floor BR closet had some of the owners possessions and a storage bag. The floor of the closet had a mouse trap and mouse droppings scattered about. I called the owner and told him of the conditions and our disappointment. He suggested that we buy pots and pans and he would reimpburse me. He also suggested that we take a trash bag and put all their possessions in it and store it somewhere in the house. I told him that wouldn't be necessary that the mouse droppings and overall condition of the house just didn't measure up to our expectations. He indicated that a refund couldn't be considered because we had rented it for the month and he had taken it off the market. I understand but don't agree with his position. We did not even spend one night in the property. So I would caution people considering this property to obtain a written contract spelling out issues such as the above.

Owner's Response: The person filing this complaint obviously did not do his due diligence in choosing the Blowing Rock area nor in choosing this property. Otherwise, he would have realized that we are priced below the market in the area, due partly to the remote location. He was correct in stating to me that "different people have different expectations", and it is quite obvious that, coming from Florida, he did not know the mountain area at all, and thought that he could rent a much nicer property for the money, that he paid. He was very wrong in underestimating the rental prices. During the time that he phoned and reached an agreement with me to rent the property, I turned down seven (7) parties who wanted to rent the property during the period that he reserved. When he phoned complaining, I explained to him that while holding the property for him, that I turned down those seven parties who wanted to rent it during his reserved time, and he stated "I did not ask you for any refund of money and know that you probably had turned away people". He stated that the property was "old", and I informed him that it was only 7 years old, and that his was the ONLY complaint filed in the four years of renting the property on short terms. Prior to his arrival, there was a couple in the house for two weeks without a whimper of dissatisfaction. The only thing he was right about, is that different people have different expectations.

We rented this adorable cabin for our kids 1st ski trip. It was so perfect , as it's centrally located to each mountain in the area. Much more room in person. The pictures just don't do it justice ! So clean and well kept. We'll definitely be back !! Thank you.

October 2012 stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family arrived on october 19 and left on the 22nd. The moment we arrived the home was so inviting and upon entering it was so cozy and well decorated thoughout. The beds were so comfortable and everything you needed was there! just bring your luggage and you are set. The owners were great to work with and answered all questions before our arrival! the weather was perfect and the nearby festival in Banner Elk is not to be missed. The restaurants in Blowing Rock were as near perfect as you could ask for. Will be going again!

Charleston, SC

Very enjoyable stay.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a place to get away from the heat and humidity of Charleston, SC. We found this lovely home not far from the wonderful little town of Blowing Rock, NC. We had a great time exploring the area and loved the cooler temps and no humidity. The location is just minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway which we explored everyday. The home is charming, very clean and with plenty of room. Great large decks made a great setting for our morning breakfast.
