What an amazing place to spend the weekend

  • 4 of 5

My family had an amazing time staying at Hemlock Hallows. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere more secluded to stay. My only complaint is that the driveway is a fairly long gravel road, which was difficult with a low sports car. That said, all other cars did fine, and we're looking forward to coming back soon.

Truly secluded and private – beautiful home, and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Stayed four nights and wanted to stay longer. The manager/caretaker was extremely helpful and always available. Will probably stay there again on our next trip. The cabin was very well-equipped and from this standpoint probably the best we have ever stayed in.

Would definitely give it a high five!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. It is a beautiful cabin with more amenities than most. It is a windy road to get to it and the driveway is also very winding so we were glad we had an all wheel drive SUV. There is lots of wildlife and we were glad we were visiting friends when yogi decided to checkout the outside grill on the porch. We enjoyed our visit and would recommend it.

Very cozy, secluded property!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. It actually ended up being just across 226a from a cabin I had stayed before, so I was reasonably familiar with the area. I saw other reviews mention that you need 4WD to get to the cabin, but that is definitely not the case. We had no problems in a Honda Accord or older Kia Optima (4cyl). I've definitely had many cabins with MUCH steeper grades.

The inside of the cabin was very spacious, yet cozy, and it had a well outfitted, large kitchen. We cooked most of our meals there and on the grill, which was clean (I was happy to see that)! It also had a really large dining room table, which was great to be able to spread out games on and eat at.

The rooms were nice and the beds comfortable as well. Slept like a baby each night :).

The only things I would mention to future renters are the following:

1 - Theres no HVAC upstairs (that we could see), so it can get a little warm if you don't get ahead of things. It was in the 80's inside the house when we arrived, and warmer upstairs, but we cranked the AC down and opened some upper windows, and by morning it was pretty chilly in the house. Once we got the temp under control, it wasn't bad.

2 - Theres a gate that you also have to open to get to the property. Its a minor thing, but we missed that in the welcome email, so its just something to be aware of!

3 - There is internet, but its a little slow. I personally am not complaining at all, I generally to go the mountains because then its easier to disconnect from everything, but if you NEED internet, just keep this in mind...of course, most places in the mountains have slower internet anyways.

Overall it was great though! Would certainly recommend this to others and be happy to stay there again!

Excellent escape for noisy musicians!

  • 5 of 5

It always makes me nervous renting a place sight unseen, but we were not disappointed. In fact, we were already planning another visit by the second day. The photos are accurate and although roomy, the cabin felt intimate and cozy and had wonderful acoustics and lighting. The kitchen was decently appointed (no there isn't an espresso machine or ice maker) and the appliances all worked to spec. It was awesome having a gas range to cook on for every meal. There are outlets everywhere-even the deck-so you can plug in without having to worry about extension cords or outlet strips. Hot water was adequate for three shower hogs.

The privacy was truly welcome as we had no interruptions by the owner or caretaker the entire time-and we enjoyed not having to worry about disturbing anyone nearby. The sound of the stream was very soothing and masked the engine sounds from the road below. 226A apparently is popular with the motorcycle crowd, but we rarely heard them.

They did have dish detergent and dishwasher soap and kitchen towels, coffee filters, salt, pepper and a few spices-but plan on stocking the cabin as you would any vacation rental and bring along favorite pots or kitchen tools (beyond a toaster, blender, coffee pot and microwave) so you will have what you need. This is the mountains, so any trip to the store to restock will take a bit of time-but there is a Walmart on either side of the ridge if you forget anything. This time of year, you will be pestered by mosquitos and ticks (yes we found one after a hike) so plan to bring bug spray and bug-resistant clothing.

The deck along the side is a bit sketchy-two of the posts were not very secure (the ones above the garage door) so if you are bringing young children, I'd ask the owners if the railing has been repaired. The internet works fine in the cabin, but prior to reaching the cabin, the cell connection became non-existent, so do print out a map of the area as well as the instructions on how to access the cabin because most likely your phone will be useless.

The driveway was a little twisty; we did ok in the two vehicles we drove, an Element (AWD) and a Ford Edge (FWD). We ended up driving beyond the cabin gate-the driveway access is the first gate on your left, but there are no signs on it indicating it is the one you by which you access the cabin.

Our only fear is that everyone else will discover this place and it will get fully booked! We are definitely planning on coming back!
