Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a great time with my family while at Fern Mountain. The house is great, more than we could imagine.

We do have a request... While we were there we all had a great night sleep on the king beds and the bunk beds and we were wanting to know what style and brand these are because they were so comfortable. This would help a great deal as both my wife and I woke up with no pain (getting older). I e-mailed Rustic Furniture but they don't sell mattress's. I forgot to look while I was there. If you have that information could you please let me know.



Again thank you for a great setting and place to share with my family.



Sincerely,

Renters (7/23/2011 thru 7/30/2011)



p.s. my 3 year old grandson said as we pulled up to the house "this is awesome"

Girls Weekend

  • 4 of 5

Wow, is all I can say. This place is beautiful more than enough room for 16 woman. we had a problem with the sound system but they came and fixed that right away I believe it was a plug or switch never had a problem after . The under counter refrigerators are such a great touch for all the food we had. Fire pit was wonderful and so nice to be tucked away in the middle of nowhere but close enough to everywhere.

I think the only complaint is one of the girls slept on a pull out couch and the mattress was pretty shabby, very thin uncomfortable but we made it work.

We will be back again for next years 32 girls weekend away.

Thank you very much

Great place for a family gathering. Including having 2 children under 1 year of age.

  • 4 of 5

Our family was attending a wedding Memorial Day weekend in the area. This was great place because my children and grandchildren were coming in from 3 different states and we

didn't want to be in a hotel. It did rain but having the game room made all the difference.

Adults enjoyed it also. This place is unique, private, plenty of room. We would of loved to

have enjoyed the fire pit and the porch on the back but mother nature didn't allow this.

Wes and Bill were great with answering all my questions and very hospitability. Bill

said call anytime if we needed anything. Some of the children were able to go to

Seven Springs and enjoy Monday. Would highly recommend this place and would

rent it again. CJ 6/9/17
