Had a wonderful stay at this House right at the tip of the Tail of the Dragon. Wish more friends could have come but there is always next year. Can't wait to come back to this beautiful breathtaking view in the perfect location in Deals Gap!! Had some awesome drives down both Tarmac and Gravel
We visited this property in late October. The location was perfect for us because of the close proximity to the Tail of the Dragon. The private drive and driveway that winds up the side of the mountain is narrow and winding. We managed just fine because we followed the owner's suggestions. The view from the very large picture window and from the large deck was magnificent! I just couldn't stop snapping photos! The photo on the website doesn't do justice to the real thing! Deal's Gap area was going to close for the season at the beginning of November. We were glad we grabbed the last weekend! There weren't many dining options nearby. We should have taken more groceries. That was our fault because the owner had suggested that. The cabin was comfortable and basic. When owner said there was not cell phone service, he absolutely meant it! I couldn't even send or receive texts! There was a landline provided in the cabin. That was very much appreciated. I would do this all over again!
I was so impressed with the feel and look of the cabin. The view from the picture window says it all. We had a wonderful time and would love to rent it again. Thank you for sharing a beautiful place with the world.
Thank you so much for allowing us to visit your beautiful home! We were blown away by the spectacular view. Your home is very comfortable and very nicely maintained. Everything was in it's place and very clean. We found ourselves saying "next we come here" ... We hope to visit in the fall when the leaves are changing. I can't imagine the view getting any better but I'll bet that is a sight to see. Thanks again!
