“Whispering Winds”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We stayed here over the weekend and enjoyed this BEAUTIFUL cabin immensely! It was pet friendly, with a little gift for our four legged family member. Also, the kids loved the chocolates in our welcome bag too. Will definitely stay with "Above the Rest Cabins" again!

Whispering Winds is better than ever! The owner just installed the new hardwood floors upstairs on the steps, the fabulous fire pit, and new mattresses in all bedrooms! I'm glad you enjoyed it! I will endeavor to get the photographs updated asap so everyone else can see how fabulous it is!

We do enjoy pampering all of our guests, kids and pets included!

Thank you so much for choosing to spend your vacation time with Above the Rest; it means the world to us! Come back any time, and until we see you again, be well and happy!

Our family stayed at Crazy Horse cabin for 4 nights and just loved it! We put down the cellphones, stayed off social media and just enjoyed the serenity and each other's company. The staff was helpful and so accommodating. The cabin itself was beautiful, clean and we'll furnished. Don't worry about forgetting to bring anything because the cabin had everything - nice towels, coffee maker, hair dryers, super nice soaps and toiletries, etc. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything from pots and pans to a cheese grater. The view from our cabin was beautiful. You could take it in from a rocking chair, hammock, porch swing or the large hot tub. It's been almost two weeks since we went, and I am still bathing in the afterglow. Reconnect with your family and with yourself. We will definitely be going back.

Crazy Horse IS fabulous! And since it is on a double lot - that yard!!! Regulation horse shoes, corn hole, fire pit, flat space for kids and pets to run and play! But you're right - that west-facing view and the thoughtfulness the owners have put into the home are what make it truly special. Thank you so much for being with us and for taking the time to review! We are so grateful for you!

Eleven people & 3 dogs with plenty of things to do just around and in the cabin, so many comfortable nooks and places to relax or read. Every room had all the comforts you could imagine, soft robes, jet tubs, tv's, fluffy soft comforters and amazing beds, the sheets were so soft and clean. The outside was perfect, a grill on the second deck had a big family table to the left and a beautiful couch and seating area with a big stone fireplace to the right, and a seating bar around the grill, perfect for grilling and hanging out with the family and dogs. We all had a wonderful time...oh and the theater chairs and big tv downstairs was so fun, like having your own personal movie and to kick back with popcorn and dogs was the best! Only thing was there was so many things to do in the house alone along with going out and whitewater rafting then visiting the town of Blue Ridge that I missed taking a sauna! I almost ran back in after we had the car packed to take a 5 minute sauna but then sanity got the best of me! I have to say for a family who loves their dogs, we had the most clean luxurious cabin stay and will most definitely come back for another stay in the future. For women, it always is somewhat of a pain to have to cook and clean on a vacation, it seems the kids and husbands always make out the best that way and it is always great when the vacation is a hotel that does all the cleaning and eating out means no cooking and no dishes but I have to say the kitchen as so wonderful along with the great grill outside and the way they were positioned that it made it a pleasure to cook! Plus, we didn't have to clean, like normal cabins you might rent, they do all the cleaning! The owners were great, helpful and were accessible when needed. So, all in all it was a great vacation for everyone!

Among the Pines is the third home the owners have built and the experience shows in the details! I'm so glad you noticed and were able to fully enjoy and experience everything! When I read a review like yours, it warms me down to my core; we endeavor to be the cleanest, most pampering rental agency on the market, with the highest level of customer care. We make mistakes like everyone else, but seeing the fruits of our hard labor so well expressed is a joy! Thank YOU for being Above the Rest and come back any time!

We stayed in the Wooden Indian for a week in June. We had four small children and four adults with us. The cabin was the perfect setup for two families. The cabin was immaculate when we checked in and had everything we needed for a great week. Any time we called the rental office they were prompt and helpful. We would definitely book through them again.

Above the Rest cabins in the Blue Ridge mountains are awesome! We've been there two years in a row and will return in the future. We've stayed in two different cabins so far and are very pleased with both. David and his wife are wonderful people and treat you with nothing but respect. They are always there if you need anything. Highly recommend these cabins!

We enjoyed our stay in this huge cabin. Clean, well-stocked, and with nice extras like dvds and great selection of magazines. David was great when there was a problem with the well water. He made sure it got corrected immmediately. Elaine in the office gave us good advice on area activities and we appreciated the shortcuts off the mountain she gave us and the one in the info book in the cabin. We were scared of the hilly roads and the shortcuts helped.

I agree - Big Bear IS fantastic! Elaine and David are as well, and I'm glad that they made your stay more enjoyable. It's unfortunate we had a well issue during your stay, but David's a master at resolving those, as you saw! We appreciate that you took the time to review us and thank you for being Above the Rest!

My famiy and I rented my mountain something for a week, david was wonderful, the cabin not so much. The cabin was not clean, there was dirty glassed on fireplace down in poolroom from past guests and the poolsticks had no tips on them, the jetted tub was nasty. David came and tried to clean but it was still dirty. My family is a biracial family well in blue ridge they fly the rebel flag high and proud. We got there on sunday and was ready to leave within two day but stuck it out until friday, when we were not due to leave until sunday. The price i paid for this cabin we could have stay in a five star hotel suit and still had money left. It is dog friendly but no yard for the dogs to run in. There was more stuff wrong but this is the main things.

Hi Samantha,

I am sorry you did not have a good experience. Unfortunately, this is the first I'm hearing of it, but I will be speaking with David to get additional details regarding the condition of the cabin when you arrived.

With respect to the yard, it is extremely rare for mountain homes to have large yards, owing to the topography of mountainous areas. There are exceptions - Crazy Horse has a very nice flat yard - but it is always best to inquire.

Blue Ridge, I have to say, is one of the most progressive and open-minded towns I've ever lived in, Southern or otherwise. There are those in Georgia and across the South who fly rebel flags, but that's not indicative of the attitude of our extremely friendly and liberal downtown. If you were treated in a poor manner by a particular business or businesses, I would be interested in hearing that in a private message at abovetherestcabins@tds.net.

I will get back with you in a private message regarding your stay. I thank you for taking the time to review us.
