About The Nguyen Family

We are a family of four. This spot is one of our favorite vacation places because when we are here, we are united and nothing interferes with that good old-fashioned family togetherness.

The Nguyen Family purchased this cabin in 2002

Why The Nguyen Family chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

When we first saw this cabin and its surroundings we were stunned by the beauty and magnificence there. It looked like something you would only see in a painting. It is truly a hidden paradise that we have found.

What makes this cabin unique

The energetic river is very soothing to gaze at and to listen to. The motion of the river seems to relax the mind, body, and soul. Truly a unique part of staying at our cabin.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a most fabulous week! the kids enjoyed throwing rocks into the creek - we even caught a few fish using the hook and corn. It was so wonderful being able to walk down and see the waterfalls any time of day. So beautiful and peaceful - very relaxing.

We experienced so much wildlife: Butterflies, a huge caterpiller, bats, black snake, fish, crawfish, salamanders,frogs, deer, etc . . . picking blueberries down the road was a real highlight and eating the blueberry cobbler was even better! It was a wonderful vacation. Your cabin was just exactly what we wanted. Thank You!

Quiet, relaxing family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was exactly what we were looking for: quiet, on a river (with fun sliding rocks and swimming holes and boulders to climb on), wooded serenity, in the beauty of North Carolina. We took one day trip into Boone to explore and eat out but otherwise we hiked the gravel driveway (quite a hilly, gorgeous long walk), swam and fished and played in the river, cooked for ourselves in the well stocked kitchen (all the equipment you'd have at home including a gas grill), played board games, watched movies, did yoga on the deck overlooking the waterfall and slept peacefully to the sound of the river. What a wonderful time!

was cancelled at last minute

  • 1 of 5

I had rented thru VRBO / Homeaway for July 13, 2016, for 4 nights & received a confirmation and payment was received. On the day we were to arrive, I sent a text stating that we were heading out and excited about coming. I was quickly told at that time that they had over booked and they had to cancel our stay even though I had confirmation and they had received the complete payment. It just would have been nice if I had of known because we (grandma & grandpa) ended up staying in a hotel room with 3 grandchildren. Definitely not what we had planned. I'm sure it would of been a nice place.

Owner great! Location Beautiful! Maintenance and cleanliness needs help.

  • 4 of 5

The location of the cabin is beautiful. You cannot beat the gorgeous surroundings. The owners were great and responded timely to each question prior to arriving.

The cabin porches are very, very dirty. One of the items on the check out check list is to sweep porches. There is no way the main porch has been swept in a long time. We did not sweep it as we paid for a post stay cleaning.

In addition, the light bulb in the fridge didn't work. The television satellite or internet connection didn't work (I was fine with this, my husband not so much).

When we arrived, the cabin was very warm. We were told that the air was broken during a stay by a former guest and that the temp could not go lower than 73. That was okay. We just wanted to get the cabin cool enough to feel comfortable. The temp was in the high 80's outside. The cabin did finally cool down.

The river front is beautiful. You can't see it from the main floor of cabin as hoped though. You can only see it from the porch and not very well when trees have leaves. I imagine it's gorgeous in the fall and winter.

So, if you're a rustic, outdoorsy, kind of person , you will love this place. Seriously, the beauty of the river and trees and rocks cannot be beat!

Beautiful and Scenic

Love the new furniture. We had a great time as usual. It was a windy weekend so we didn't have a chance to light the fire pit. We love this cabin

Secluded relaxing getaway

  • 4 of 5

We chose this cabin for its seclusion and it exceeded our expectations in that regard. We never left the property for 3 days and never saw anyone else except for the property manager who made sure we were comfortable. The thermostat is locked and the cabin was too cool for us so we called him. He came quickly and adjusted the temperature. He even called us the next morning to make sure the temp was OK.

As others have said the old highway is just across the river and on weekdays there were many large dump trucks traveling the road all day which we could hear from the cabin but only for a few seconds each time.

The cabin was comfortable for two but if anyone slept in the upstairs loft there is no privacy; those rooms are open to the kitchen/living room below. The bed on the first floor was comfortable. No comment on the pillows as we brought our own. The kitchen was well stocked with equipment and utensils. The futon in the photos has been replaced by a leather sofa with two built-in reclining seats which are great for napping. Both bathrooms are quite small but adequate. The shower is tiny. Wifi was useful and we could get a weak cell signal outdoors (Verizon).

Our favorite feature is the river next to the cabin. You can hear the sound of the rapids all day and night. The water is crystal clear and we spent hours exploring up and down the river. Every few yards there is another small waterfall. We enjoyed hiking upstream but be careful as some of the rocks are very slippery and we came away with some minor scrapes and bruises. The water is cool and refreshing.
