Great place

  • 5 of 5

Great place, convenient to get to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Great little restaurant down the road called "Thompson's Seafood and Country Cooking". The cabin had everything we needed and the trail along the creek was very scenic. We planned this trip in May and it just happened to occur when Hurricane Matthew hit eastern NC where we are from. It was good to have power here and the power came back on at our place about an hour before we got home.

The cabin was wonderful and very clean

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very nice and peaceful. We enjoyed feeding and watching the deer. The stream was really nice and so were the trails to walk on. My kids really enjoyed the pool. We didn't get to use the club house cause it was closed however we did get to see what it looked like inside there was a guy that showed use around and was very helpful I would stay again

It was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I already wrote a whole review on the guest book but yea it is a great house with lots of room and entertainment in itself and the surroundings.. Deer, bug and frogs concert at night, deers ... A young one let us come near..we were a family, grandparents with daughters and grandchild and the experience was precious coming from Florida and California to the green of NC just before our daughter's wedding in West Jefferson..which was AMAZING. People seem pretty mellow, helpful and friendly. Nice clubhouse with lots of potential. Peaceful. Thank you so much. Brian and Sylvie.

Great, relaxing summer family getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for a short (3 day) weekend. We all wish it were longer and hope to go back. The cabin was absolutely delightful. I’ve stayed in a good number of vacation rentals and would put this one at the top. The cabin was nestled in the woods creating a relaxing view, the trails were great and everyone loved feeding the deer. There were 8 in our group and we had plenty of room. The owner was extremely responsive and helpful. I would definitely recommend this location. As indicated in other reviews, it is a bit of a drive to get to the cabin, so plan accordingly for excursions and food.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review of Day's Mt. Retreat! When I think of our cabin, relaxing is the first thought I have! To be able to get away from everyday life and escape to the woods and the deer, hiking if you want. I am so glad you enjoyed and I look forward to serving you again in the future Barbara

Nice spot

  • 4 of 5

The location is great. Pool and camp site are near by. We loved feeding the dear every day! There are several trails to choose from and the stream at the camp site is awesome. Will come back when we have more time.

The house is outdated but clean. It has plenty of room and nice decks. We played pool a lot:-) owner was very responsive, which was greatly appreciated.
