Peaceful setting and a well-cared-for property

  • 5 of 5

We had the most pleasant, restful week at the Banjo Ridge cabin. We enjoyed the wildlife we saw (rabbit and wild turkeys) and the view from the porch.

The property is immaculate...clean and well maintained.

We'll book this cabin again, no doubt.

Better than we could have hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

We came to the mountains for a wedding at the nearby Sugar Hollow Retreat. This was an absolutely PERFECT spot! We were only 5 minutes away from the festivities and the cabin was simply amazing. Photos do not do the size and quality of the home justice. Beautiful high ceilings and very spacious rooms. Everything you could want for a mountain retreat. Truly a beautiful home in a gorgeous spot! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perhaps the most beautiful in which we have stayed; it exceeded our expectations. The location in the mountains was ideal; it was quiet and peaceful, idyllic and beautiful. Access was not difficult, and it was close enough to Elizabethton to allow us to do some intended research there. The cabin was clean and well-equipped when we arrived; I hope we left it so. The fire pit was ideal for cooking our brats and roasting marshmallows, which our granddaughter particularly enjoyed. The hot tub was really nice. The beds were comfortable, although ours creaked. The dishwasher also could use some WD-40 or something to cut the creaking. We noted that the toilet in the master bedroom suite was running, so it will need some attention. These are, of course, small matters. We continually commented on how much we enjoyed the property, and the rental price was reasonable. We spent one day inside just enjoying it. Listening to the rain was quite pleasant.

Owner's Response: So glad these folks enjoyed their stay and hope everyone else that stays here feels the same way. Every member of our staff tries hard to keep the place clean and well-equipped. Love to hear that others enjoy the fire pit and roast some marshmallows with those they love. Its really nice to kick back and take advantage of time spent with grand kids, its priceless. We'll get the toilet to stop running and take some WD-40 with us. So good to hear positive words, thanks again for taking the time to share them.
