Floating at Sir Isaacs' Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this property! After a 3 hour tube float down we spent another two hours sitting in lawn chairs in the river. It was perfect and the house had everything we needed. To top it off, we ended the night with a fantastic meteor shower viewed from the front porch. We plan to rent this home again!

Great location by the New River

  • 5 of 5

This home had a wonderful wrap around porch for everyone to enjoy. It was right on the river, so it was great for putting in a tube up the river and floating down to the house! Nice bathrooms, space and room for a family to spread out. Brenda welcomed us and was very helpful. We loved out time there!

Restful break from the hectic holiday season.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed this place away from home. One day was rainy but the seven of us were able to spread out since the living room area is separate from the dining room. A group could play cards and enjoy games while others could view videos or read books. The river out front was very peaceful, even enticing my son to sleep on the porch for "the best rest ever". Hiking at Grandfather/Table Top/Hawksbill was over a hour away while Mount Jefferson was a 20 minute ride with good views and an easy walk, even though the guide says strenuous.

Everything in the cabin was neat and well maintained.

We had a great mini vacation and celebrated the New Year!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great stay here. We appreciate the hospitality from the family who owns the cabin. It is a beautiful cabin beside the river. We spent one day in Boone and one day in West Jefferson. The cabin is conveniently located between the two. We had a wonderful time!

Nice cabin, small

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our weekend at the cabin, especially the proximity to the river. While the cabin was nice, it was smaller than we had imagined. The description says that it fits 8 people, but it does not tell you there is an extra charge for more than 6. We paid $50 a night more for two extra people. The best was the wrap around porch that was a beautiful place to relax with the whole group.

Owner's Response: I submitted this response to the review on VRBO but it has not been added to the review. I would appreciate your adding it as soon as possible. Regarding our rates, when guests click on the "Rates" section we clearly state that $175 applies to 6 guests and that an additional $25 is charged per guest (up to 2 additional guests). Also, when you correctly enter the number of guests that will be coming, such as 4 adults 4 children, the web site will automatically compute the charges. The rates section also shows a $100 pet fee if you wish to bring a pet. In this situation, the guests brought two dogs. I can understand how the house may have seemed small when you put 8 people and two dogs in it.

Wonderful Cabin and trip!

  • 5 of 5

A great cozy cabin. Loved the sectional couch and fireplace. We stayed after Christmas and through New Years. There were 6 of us. Very comfortable home. The owners were wonderful and very accommodating! We spent one day in shopping in Boone, hiked a few trails off of the blue ridge parkway and visited the Cheese factory in West Jefferson. We especially loved the hike along the river behind the cabin. A great relaxing 5 day vacation trip that wouldn't have been possible without this beautiful cabin! Can't wait to go back and tube the river!
