This home sits on 3 1/2 acres of beauty and peace. Whether I am sitting in a rocking chair reading my favorite book or in the hot tub relaxing looking at the stars, I can clear my head and enjoy the treasure we have been given. That is why people for years have been coming to these mountains for as long as history goes back, the Blue Ridge Mountains gives you a truly joyful feeling of what life should be.
This property is centrally located for easy access to many areas of the mountains, whether it is boating or snow skiing you can go out for nice day trips. Come back home to grill out and enjoy an beautiful sunset in the privacy of your own cabin.
We had Ana amazing time at this cabin. It was up in the mountains with a beautiful view from the hot tub. The house was so clean and the bed was cozy. We had a wonderful time cooking in the kitchen and watching football on the flatscreen in the living room. Only about an hour from ashville which took no time at all to get to. We LOVED that it was a gated community and all the houses were very nice. Overall this was a wonderful little get away and I definitely reccomend it!
Love the community. Cabin was very nice and clean. Great place for a quiet vacation.
What a pleasant experience! From the time we booked our 2-night getaway on the VRBO site, until we were notified that our security deposit had been refunded before we even had time to drive the 3 hours home, the owners were responsive and made this booking/stay satisfying and stress-free!
We’ve rented homes via VRBO many times and the immediate turn-around re: the security deposit was definitely a first and very much appreciated!!
The cabin/house itself was perfect for our needs. It was well-appointed, clean and quite comfortable. We loved the rocking chair/sitting areas located on the deck outside the two bedrooms. The scenery was breathtaking! The mountainscapes were ever-changing and entertained us for several hours during both evenings of our stay.
It was a quiet setting and perfect for some much needed rejuvenation and togetherness.
We believe that the website represented the cabin/house well. The directions/instructions re: rental were well documented.
We enjoyed exploring some of The Blue Ridge area/towns on Saturday and loved our mountain walk throughout the Grandview Peaks neighborhoods on Sunday morning.
We discovered The South Creek Vineyards & Winery www.southcreekwinery.com in Nebo, just a short distance from the rental. An early evening of cocktails while sitting adjacent to the vineyards, shaded by a big magnolia tree, with a local artist providing music in the background was a great ending to a very special Blue Ridge Mountains Saturday.
We would recommend that you either bring along some incidental groceries or buy groceries prior to arriving to the Grandview Peaks turn-off on Hwy 226.
Sundays are pretty quiet in Marion and Morganton, even the gourmet coffee shops are closed, so best plan to eat at the cabin/house on Sunday. We did come upon an interesting restaurant open for lunch in Morganton on Sunday called - Wisteria Southern Gastropub. Unfortunately, we were unable to dine there, as we hadn't made a reservation. We'll know better next time!
Thank you for sharing your wonderful cabin in the mountains, Rae & Mike!
My husband, son and myself stayed at this cabin for 3 nights in July. It was a perfect retreat, in a very, nice gated neighborhood and the views of mountains and sunsets from everywhere, but esp. the back deck, were superb!! The cabin itself was wonderful too! It was very tastefully decorated and had every thing you could imagine you would ever need. Definitely a home-away-from-home!! It was extremely clean and comfortable, and the hot tub on the back deck was another great treat!! Would definitely recommend and go back when we are able. Thank you for making your place so very welcoming!
We had a wonderful time at 'Top of the Ridge.' I can't say enough about the beautiful views. The cabin was perfect in every way -- comfort, cleanliness and decor. I recommend it for anyone looking for a peaceful get away.
Do not hesitate at all to book this cabin! It is beautiful with an amazing view. It was very clean and well kept. It is in a gorgeous little community, but feels very private and quiet. It has fairly easy access to major interstates if you do want to go out, but once you get there, chances are you won't want to leave! My children thoroughly enjoyed the gorgeous private lake, and the walk to the waterfall is very pleasant. You cannot go wrong booking this cabin. The owners are very responsive and help to make your stay as amazing as possible. I would definitely book this cabin again anytime!
Community maintained walking trails to a small waterfall within 5 minutes of the house.
