Everywhere in this house, we saw evidence of your love for your family and your love for the Lord Jesu Christ. Our stay at "Luberon Castle" could not have been more perfect. Thank you for your part in his wonderful family celebration. We will cherish the memories of our time here gathered as a family from around the globe.

Only problem doors were hard to unlock and lock. One trash can in garage was not enough for us. Overall we loved it just making suggestions for future visitors. Thank you again for sharing your home with us. God bless you

The Mountain Retreat was lovely! My husband and girls enjoyed the home and the cool weather!

  • 5 of 5

The home is immaculate, and very comfortable. The kitchen is truly equipped for cooking, unlike many vacation homes.

The beds are very comfortable, and the linens are high quality. The home is about 30 minutes from downtown Greenville, and 15 minutes from Furman.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you Dotson family!

Spacious, comfortable, fantastic kitchen plenty of bathrooms for a larger family or group.

  • 5 of 5

Quiet location yet convenient to everything we wanted to do such as biking the Swamp Rabbit Trail, enjoying the restaurants of Travelers Rest and Greenville and enjoying the Upstate state park system.

Though we didn't go due to time constraints, Hendersonville, Asheville and Brevard are very close by as well.

We definitely plan to stay here again and highly recommend this property for family get togethers or groups.

A Lovely Weekend

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time when we gathered to celebrate a family member's milestone birthday. The home is spacious and well appointed. It is well located for easy access to Greenville, Hendersonville and Asheville where we spent some time shopping and dining. The kitchen is equipped for cooking although we chose to take advantage of the excellent restaurants in the area.

For those who are TV watchers, the TV reception was very poor but that wasn't a problem for us. We took full advantage of the screened porch, spending late evening hours and early morning hours enjoying the cool breezes and peaceful surroundings.

We found the master bedroom very warm and had to sleep with the doors open to the great room. The air conditioning did not seem to reach the master and the ceiling fan was inoperable or we never figured out how to turn it on. There were a couple of minor repairs needed. One of the light globes in an upstairs bedroom was missing and the front door was difficult to open. None of the small flaws impacted our enjoyment of the weekend. We were all sorry to leave.
