Why Eric Berg chose North Carolina

We enjoy the cooler weather and outdoor activities in summer.

The snow and skiing brings us up often in the winter.

What makes this house unique

This is a mountain contemporary house which have been fully refurbished and totally winterized. It is made for extended family stays, while enjoying the NC mountains all year around. We encourage weekly rentals for families and we have kids bikes, swings, sleds and plenty of nature to play in.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Yes it was not cleaned because guests arrived early even though informed that cleaner had been sick and running behind. Guests arrived at 8 am and then said for the cleaning lady not to come back and finish.

I have pictures of the dirty carpet. When I notified guests of the carpet condition they stopped payment on the damage deposit check.

Fabulous Rental

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time. The house is beautiful and the communication with the owner was great. The house is exactly how it is pictured. It was wonderful for each couple to have their own king size bed. I am hoping to rent it again next Thanksgiving! BEAUTIFUL! Thank you again for sharing your lovely home with us!

terrible communication, dirty upon arrival,

  • 1 of 5

We arrived at this home and it was filthy. called multiple times to the owner, cleaning person and caretaker. No one called back. Had to clean the whole home ourselves. Tried to contact the owner several other times, the fireplace didn't work etc. would take more then a day for him to get back. His answer was to use the outside firepit. The reason it was filthy was the cleaning lady had another job and didn't expect us to come so early ( even though we were scheduled to arrive. ) After leaving I waited several days to hear from the owner. over a week later he finally sent me an email stating no one would be at the house until October 9th . on the 9th at 10:30 I received an email with pictures of the back efficiency with dirty carpets. He told me it would have to be cleaned, if it didn't come clean he would have to replace them. I called him immediately and told him the room did not look like that when we left! I told him we did not even use that room! We only had 7 people and one child .... although we paid for 10 people.

He was supposed to reimburse me for the fact that we had to do our own cleaning. He had already told me the cleaning lady was upset because she was losing money. Seems to me , this is some sort of revenge.

I feel this owner ripping people off, and the house needs a lot of work.

Beautiful Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home for a family gathering. All the amenities you could ask for. Close to a number of attractions for kids and adults, yet you feel like you've got the mountain all to yourself. Panoramic views from all over the house and a cozy deck for outdoor gathering!
