Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our 2nd year back to Towering Pines for good reason. We love it! The room set up at the cabin is perfect for a large group. We were never tripping over each other. The kitchen had all the utensils and tools for cooking. We had plenty of towels (and there were 2 kids, one teen and 7 adults!). The owners were quick to help with a minor issue that arose. All around, it is a fabulous place to stay. We will be going back again soon!

Christmas in the Hills.

We loved this place! We spent a 4 generation Christmas holiday here. We had everything we needed and did not feel crowded or cramped. Nicely appointed, owners were more than accommodating! Easy winter access. We highly recommend it.

Perfect place for multigenerational family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was roomy and comfortable. The kids enjoyed their independence downstairs and grandparents could escape to the sitting room upstairs while the parents occupied the main floor. Would definitely recommend this place to others. Thank you!

Perfect Vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 people, ranging in ages between 9 and 67. Everyone had a place to sleep, very comfortably. The kitchen was our gathering place and with the tv there, we were all able to be in the same space and enjoy our time together. Centrally located, it is the perfect location for all the tourist attractions in the area. We all loved it, and would highly recommend this rental!
