House was great but parking is horrible. The driveway is on an angle and all 6 arrive on Motorcycles. We had a very difficult time parking. Would be just fine in a vehicle though. House was very nice!

This home is beautiful from the views to the furniture and decore. The livinroom furniture is so comfy and lovely we enjoyed sitting around chatting for hours on them. The TV’s are great! We got to log into our own Netflix account! The gas fireplace was so nice and warm!! The beds and pillows are amazing! I didn’t want to get out of bed! The owners is so nice and accessible we had a question and he answered right away! The only reason for the four stars is the steep road to get there. We are little old ladies and it shook our nerves a bit. It is do-able but very steep. I’d love to stay here again!

Our family chose this cabin for our Christmas get away after a very hard year. This cabin was beautiful and the views were breathtaking. The pictures are exactly the way it is, updated and spacious. We’re already talking about returning. I highly recommend this cabin!

Beautiful and roomy

Beautiful, cozy and roomy for a large group. The hot tub and gas fireplace were great amenities. Our family loved the downstairs game room.

This place is Truly a gem!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this place about 5 months in advance to celebrate a Friendsgiving. Tim, the owner, promptly responded to and answered any questions that we had from the day we booked to the day we left. We even had to contact him Thanksgiving morning, and he responded within seconds and was pleasant and helpful. My whole family is huge on vacation rentals and very rarely do we stay in hotels. With that being said, I can hands down say that mountainside retreat is definitely one of our favorites. Turning on to the road that leads you to the cabin was a bit scary for us Floridian flatlanders. The road is pretty steep putting you high on top of the mountains but we were able to make it up fine with a Tahoe, minivan and Corolla. Entering the cabin Tim left no stone unturned. It was fully stocked with everything we could need And the decorating was cozy and beautiful. All of the furniture from the couches to the beds were super comfortable and not the common fill the space furniture that I've found in other rentals. Coming for Thanksgiving we had brought a lot of things along with us that I wouldn't expect a cabin to be stocked with and Tim already had it all figured out. There was a Turkey platter to serve our Thanksgiving Turkey, a Turkey roasting Pan, gravy bowls, plenty of paper towels, garbage bags, toilet paper and dishes. I was really impressed at how well this cabin was stocked. Pictures do this cabin no Justice at all there are breath taking views from every window and you really are truly up in the mountain to get the whole experience. The home has 3 levels the top level is the master Bedroom with a king size bed and full bathroom with a tub, the main level has a living and dining room, kitchen and Queen size master bedroom with bathroom. The main level also has a 1/2 bathroom and balcony. Going down to the bottom level or basement you have the game Room with bunk beds and a king size bedroom with a full bathroom and laundry room. We had 5 boys ranging from 20 months to 12 years old and they all had a blast. I don't think we saw them the whole time but to eat. We did do some exploring but there was no reason to leave the house. The views from the cabin were just as good as any we saw. Tim, we all couldn't thank you enough for such a beautiful rental that you offer. We all had such a wonderful time and will definitely be returning in the future. We would like to try to plan another trip when it could possibly snow to get stuck up on your mountain.
