Why Sharon Crossett chose North Carolina

We searched for almost 20 years all over N.C. for the property that met our criteria...

Great views...private location... (Elevation)seasonal changes...unique character...

This home has been a WIP for a number of years! So we are finally getting where we can say it is almost 'done' (we will always keep making 'improvements'). We take so much pride in this cabin and our family has worked so hard to make this a really unique place to escape to! It has a 'soul' it 'calls' us all of the time, we wish we could answer more often! We hope you will come visit and enjoy it as much as we do!

California Native in Love with Silverstone Cabin!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I drove across from Agoura Hills,CA to stay at the cabin with some friends to attend a wedding in Blowing Rock. The drive was around 36 hours total(I took 2 days, around 18 hours a day), anyway, the first thing I did when I got there was to sit on that AMAZING porch. I thought where I was from had a great mountain view, this place was spectacular. The house itself was beautiful, wood and log trimming everywhere, hot tub, open kitchen, did I mention the porch? Huge porch, the house was clean, and also very well taken care of, oh and natural spring water runs into the house as well. We all really enjoyed hiking the woods behind the house, and enjoyed the waterfall that's on the property as well. Overall we really enjoyed our stay, the owners were friendly and answered all of our question, and the stay was wonderful. I am already planing another visit to the cabin for next summer!!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not to the view justice! This cabin was perfect for a girls getaway in the mountains! Close to Boone and many other attractions and great location for anyone hoping to enjoy a day of hiking. The cabin itself was beautiful with amazing views from both decks and a nice fire pit to enjoy the evening by. The home owner was incredible, very helpful and responsive for any and all needs! I would strongly recommend this rental to anyone visiting the area, we will absolutely be back.

Disappointed

  • 2 of 5

First let me say that the owner is a very nice lady and the inside furnishings are lovely. HOWEVER, it is not what we envisioned from the advertisement.

On the site, there is a photo of the front of a cabin. This is NOT what you are renting. You are only renting the second floor and the loft. The front door is not accessible.

The living room/breakfast area you do have access to is extremely crowded. I do not know how you could fit six adults into this room comfortably. While there are nice sleeping accommodations for six, there is no way six people could fit around the kitchen table, which has four chairs. The two chairs at the breakfast bar cannot be used simultaneously, as there is no room for anyone to move. The television sits randomly in the middle of the floor, dividing the sitting area from the eating area.

Seating for six is provided at the outside table, which leads me to the next problem. The house is INFESTED with carpenter bees that are actively boring into the side of the cabin. We even found wood shavings on the top of the stove!! We were unable to use the deck or any of the outside amenities. That really limits the size of the house. When I mentioned to the property owner that we left early because of the bees, her response was that that happens sometimes!

As there is no access to the back door, the fire pit is only available if you follow a very small trail around the side of the bee-infested house. Also, we could find no safe area to hike around this house.

This is a lovely area of NC to visit. We have been there two times and are planning to return next summer. However, we will be going back to a different house we previously rented through this website. We were EXTREMELY disappointed and unhappy with the amount of money we spent on this property and what we received in return.

Would not recommend.

Owner's Response: I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED...to have this review among all of the wonderful guest reviews we always receive!! We make every effort to paint the most descriptive picture on the site through photos and verbage outlining the cabins' layout and spacial quality. It is a 3 Bedroom/2 Bath rental. The rental price is less than some area rental homes offering similar amenities. We feel the pricing is fair. (The room through the front door is an unfinished living area(which I disclose to guests), where we have some family furniture stored...if we were to offer the space in the rental which, going forward, would possibly be an extra bedroom and bath...the rental price would be much more. (The total space for the 2 Full upper floors is a pretty spacious 1,450 sq. ft.) Up until this time, I can't say I have understood from any guest that the living/dining areas are not spacious enough.(The TV was taken from its' shelf above the gas log/fireplace/ stove when the stove had to be replaced, it is temporarily placed for now, it is on a movable stand). Springtime does bring carpenter bees to the area temporarily to try to make their home in our home...we spray the cabin exterior prior to warm weather to discourage the few that come around, but that is about all we can do, they are not in huge numbers, by any means. (When we are there during the Spring and bees are around we go out to sit in the side yard next to the pond and enjoy the views from there for awhile). I always call to check in on my guests when they arrive, these guests stated all was good.... and I did not hear anything else from them during the stay until they left..my local caretaker could have come by to spray again to help remedy the bees. *The guests who stayed for for a week right after these guests did not report an issue. They stated, "We were sad to leave, and had a wonderful time." All in all, we try to do everything we can to make our guests stay enjoyable.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this cabin. The owner was very helpful and informative and called soon after our arrival to ensure everything was as we expected. The view is absolutely phenomenal from everywhere on the property, inside and out. We enjoyed sitting on the porch most of the weekend just relaxing and taking it all in. The hot tub was great and provided us a great way to take in the sunsets behind the mountains. Thanks so much for making your home available to us, we certainly hope to be back!

' Silverstone Cabin' has the most extraordinary views and it's unique location is so convenient to many local attractions! Watch the seasons change! Our chalet can be enjoyed all year long!

We call it our Slice of Paradise!

Spring & Summer days can be spent on the over-sized deck taking in the view of layers of mountains and the tranquil sounds of the waterfall & creek near the house or go for a hike around the 22 acres surrounding the property. We think we have the best views in the area...

For the more adventurous, spend the day hiking, fishing,white water rafting, ziplining, skiiing or horseback riding.

Our guests love walking around the towns of Boone & Blowing Rock. They have much to offer... great restaurants, sight-seeing, shopping. (Outlet Shopping in Blowing Rock) There is always a local festival going on somewhere close by. The locals are some of the most friendly, laid back people you will ever meet!

Experience beautiful mountain colors in the Fall driving the Blue Ridge Parkway or from the deck.

We have a blast skiing in the Winter months at nearby resorts: Sugar Mt. Appalachian, Beech Mt.,@ Hawksnest (tubing)! You can see (long range view) of Sugar Mt.& Beech Mt. night ski runs from the deck.
