My husband and I spent several days in this lovely home. The setting is beautiful with horses grazing in the pasture next door. The Blue Ridge Parkway is just yards down the road with lots of hiking opportunities. The house itself is spacious and equipped with everything including a fire pit! This is a great place to chill out, but you can also go into Sparta for a nice meal and shopping. We'll definitely come back!
Our stay in the Parkway Log Cottage could not have been better! The property manager was wonderful, answering all my questions before our trip. The home was immaculate, comfortable, and in a lovely, quiet setting of rolling hills and pastures. Everything we needed for preparing Thanksgiving dinner was in the kitchen, with a table large enough for our family. I so appreciated the owner having linens, paper products, and other home products available, it was a very welcome, and welcoming, thing to do. Hiking in Stone Mountain Park was fun and nearby Sparta is a nice little town with friendly people and a great little restaurant, The Mustard Seed on Main Street. Altogether a wonderful experience!! Would definitely recommend this property.
Very nice home. Quiet neighborhood. Beautiful setting. Would definitely recommend.
Nice cabin right off BRP and would have great easy access when trailering a motorcycle. Enjoyed day trips from home.
What a fabulous experience! The home was just perfect for the three couples and in a wonderful location for winery tours and hiking. Communication from the managing company and owner was thorough making the whole rental process and easy one. We've stayed in many rental homes and enjoyed that this one provided fresh linens and towels and things like coffee, paper towels, and toilet paper. The home was also dog friendly which is rare to find and next time we may consider bringing them. I will be organizing more winery tours with friends in the future and will definitely be contacting this company to rent this home again!
The house is wonderful. The pictures represent it well. We appreciated that the kitchen was so well stocked. the porch and view is delightful, the opportunities for hiking at Stone Mountain or off the Parkway are great. Katrina was very communicative and everything was as she promised. It was a delightful experience and we hope to go back.
We stayed here to celebrate our family Thanksgiving holiday. It was perfect! It accommodated 6 comfortably, and there is a pull out couch for 2 more. Nicely equipped kitchen, clean and even has games and toys for kids. A great base to explore the NC wine country, Stone Mountain State Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Lived up to our expectations and would highly recommend and stay here again.
