Guestbook comments from the owner

This rental was absolutely beautiful, and we fully enjoyed our stay. The house is perfectly laid out and was very comfortable. There was even a washer and dryer! Alexandra was so easy to work with and sent detailed instructions. I would definitely stay here again and I highly recommend this rental!

A delightful tree top hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved our stay at Two Rock Treehouse. We mainly wanted somewhere to relax for a few days after a hectic week visiting DC and New York, on our family adventure over from the UK. The Treehouse was perfect. We loved the peace and tranquility, combined with the convenience of the location. The facilities at Mill Ridge Community were great for our kids (11y.o. & 16 y.o.) - beautiful tennis courts (racquets provided by the Treehouse), a clean swimming pool, basketball hoop and pretty places to walk. We loved grilling on the deck every evening, and watching a variety of birds visiting the feeders. We didn't go out too much as we were there for a rest from sightseeing, but really enjoyed Grandfather Mountain, Linville Falls and the views from Blue Ridge Parkway. For families wanting to be more active there was so much to do - rafting, kayaking, zip lining and horse riding all near by. But best of all was the feeling that we were special visitors in a much loved family home with all our needs catered for by Alex, a wonderful hostess! I can definitely recommend this cabin as a quaint and charming place to stay, with plenty to do for older children.

Quaint, comfy cabin in a great mountain location.

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great, Alex was very pleasant and accommodating and responsive. I would definitely recommend it. We loved the area, it was easy to find and a short drive from every kind of activity. We did a lot of hiking and canoeing on Julian Price Lake. Visited Boone. Saw the Linville falls and caves. Down the road was a little hidden gem called Otter Falls, I'd definitely recommend that.

It was also nice having the Watauga river right there, and community pool available, my son loves to swim.

Unfortunately it rained a lot, but the Olympics were on, so having wifi and satellite TV was awesome. We may have gone a little crazy otherwise.

My only minor complaint is that the one room where my son slept was very musty. He didn't complain but would wake up sneezy and stuffy. I understand it must be really difficult to avoid that in that particular environment, but it was a little overpowering.

Just what thw doctor ordered!

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin with all the ammenities you can imagine. The location and weather were perfect. Centrally located to all the fun things in the area from rafting to wineries you cant beat the location. I work outside in the hot Florida sun. This place was the perfect relief with nights in the 50s and daytime highs in pleasureable 70s in July. The facility is as advertised and even better. I was sorta worried when I discovered no air conditioner but we never needed it and with the windows open we could enjoy all the sounds of nature. Ms Howard was a fantastic hostess who went the extra mile for us and I would not hesitate to suggest this cabin to any couple or small family to escape the harsh Florida summers and have some fun.

Exactly what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This home is in the middle of no where but yet right in the middle of everything. It is a beautiful property with lots of privacy but its location is close to shopping, attractions, and everything you need! The lack of AC in June scared me at first but it was a non issue. With the windows open the cabin cooled off in just a few minutes and was pleasant. We would definitely stay here again.

Quaint and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

The neighborhood is so quiet and relaxing yet enough to keep my 2 young boys entertained! We enjoyed the hiking trails, the pool, the river and just walking the neighborhood. The great location was perfect.

The cabin is cozy and very well equipped with everything we needed. It felt like we stayed at a family friends home. Look forward to coming back.

Great little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for our family of 4 for Memorial Day weekend. The location is excellent for access to hiking, fishing, kids activities, little towns and shops, etc. The neighborhood has some nice amenities (stream, Watauga River access, pool, tennis) while still feeling woodsy - not feeling like you are in a condo/resort. My kids loved climbing on the rocks and we enjoyed sitting out on the deck listening to the birds. The house itself has many nice personal touches. The owners supplied lots of little necessities - plastic wrap, spices, toilet paper, paper towels, linens, even things like mayo and mustard in the fridge. Makes it easy to go for the weekend without packing half your kitchen to take along. Everything is labeled and easy to figure out. It's a small cottage but the beds were good quality and the shower was great, and everything was very clean. We'll definitely be back!!

Banner Elk is the ski capital of the south and the city has just celebrated its 100th anniversary. The cottage is centrally located within 8 miles of the 4 ski/tubing resorts, the city of Seven Devils, Linville, Boone, Blowing Rock and the rural town of Valle Crusis. World-class restaurants serving superb mountain cuisine are scattered all over the area. Within a couple of minutes of Downtown Foscoe includes specialty shop's, antique stores , flea markets, country stores, old fashion gas station/grocery store (serving breafast, lunch and a Friday Fish Fry). Trout fishing, swiming holes,white water rafting.

The backroads hold offbeat settlements such as Valle Crucis,( latin for 'Vale of the Cross') off us-194 where the original 1883 Mast General Store well worth a look for its cast-iron, outdoor gear and a 5 cent cup of coffee. This rural community has stayed untouched for two hundred years.....or Maybe just do nothing and sit on our deck and smell the crisp fresh mountain air!

Other Activities: Hiking, kayaking, Whitewater Rafting, lazy river tubing (they even provide a tube for your drinks) Canoeing, Wildlife Viewing, Skiing, Tubing, Snowboarding, Cave Exploring, Waterfall chasin, rock climbing, Kayak Fishing, fly fishing, Trout Fishing,(brook, brown and rainbow trout)Gem Mining, Mountain Biking, Antique Shopping, Scenic Drives.
