Awesome time at The Jennifer!

  • 5 of 5

The Jennifer came just as advertised and more. Beautiful, very clean cabin with all the amenities. All this combined with the awesome service provided by Mary, the owner, made our labor day weekend one of the most memorable for our group of 10 adults. The cabin is nestled in the mountains of North Carolina in the city of Mars Hills. It came fully stocked with toiletries that served 10 adults over the weekend. Spacious, well-furnished rooms and a living room with a spectacular view of the mountains. Everyone unanimously agreed that's the spot we'll be staying the next trip to the area.

Fall Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at The Jennifer for a fall girls getaway weekend. The house was beautiful, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed looking at the mountains with coffee in the morning and the outdoor fire pit at night. It was an easy drive to Asheville and The Blueridge Parkway. The owner was very helpful and attentive. She even offered to go to the store for us before we arrived!

We saw the pictures and read the description but you never really know what to expect. What an amazing surprise the beautiful Jennifer cabin turned out to be for us! What we couldn't tell from the photos was how spacious it was and how warm and welcome we felt walking inside for the first time. The view is very breathtaking both inside and out. Can't wait to go back and enjoy another peaceful time away at the Jennifer. Planning to go back in the fall to experience the beautiful foliage. There is so much to do in this area and yet sometimes just sitting and taking in the beauty of God's creation surrounding The Jennifer is all that you want to do. The owner Mary was very helpful and welcoming and informative to what's happening around town and downtown Asheville. We were treated wonderfully and our stay was very memorable. Thank You, Mary!

Perfect Cabin Getaway

We brought our youth group to the mountains for a retreat and stayed at The Jennifer. We had such a great time. There's lots of space, an incredible view, and it was close to the different activities we wanted to do. Mary is awesome to work with!
