A great place for quiet time , camp fires and time together.

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and attractive. I loved having the main bedroom on the first floor. The fire pit was a huge success. We had a few nights around the campfire. We enjoyed the pool table and the hot tub. The location was wonderful for getting into town and hikes. The best part was how quiet it was. My only complaint is the cookware needs to be replaced.

A great place for families that want to spent time together. A lot of open space.

Peaceful and relaxing, this lovely mountain home is well equipped and very roomy. We enjoyed the fire pit and hot tub. No lack of supplies for laundry, cooking, and general needs. Easy to get to from town and a great location for hiking. My family is eager to come back.

Wonderful weekend and very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing. We slept 9 adults and a 1 year old very comfortably. There were all the amenities needed to cook meals daily and even some extras. We enjoyed the fire pit outback at night and the S'mores kit was an excellent touch. Luanne was wonderful and even allowed us to check in a little early to accommodate travel with our young daughter. We will definitely be looking to stay here again on our next trip to Brevard.

Fantastic house!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at Abundant Joy! Even the name was perfect for the occasion! We are six sisters who needed a break from reality and all met for the weekend to hike and relax. The house was close to everything we needed and wanted! It was well stocked with THE MOST COMFORTABLE BEDS AND PILLOWS!!! We will be making this our annual spot from now on! Thank you so much, Luanne!!!

Great home, beautiful view of the mountains!

  • 4 of 5

The house was in a great location. Very comfortable for 8 people. Needs a few minor touch ups in the home but besides that the house was very nice, clean and modern.

Owner's Response: Hi! Thanks for letting us know that a jet came out of the jacuzzi and that a hanging rack came out of the wall in the closet when you hung clothes on it. The rack was already fixed and the replacement jet has been ordered. We take great pride in keeping things tip top. We appreciate your review!

Very spacious and comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

My family spent Thanksgiving in Abundant Joy. It was very comfortable and spacious! We had everything we needed to prepare our Thanksgiving dinner. Enjoyed the fireplace. Plenty of wood available. The owner provided everything for s'mores. Nice treat! Some of us enjoyed the hot tub. The home was very clean. Would stay here again.
