We have rented many vacation homes over the years and Above the Clouds is by far the nicest rental property where we have ever stayed. The property totally lives up to the pictures and descriptions that were provided prior to booking. We were fortunate and had an afternoon when the clouds did roll in below us and then they rose to envelop us and then they cleared up - it was beautiful! It is also the cleanest rental property we have ever stayed in. The house is very well kept and very well appointed with very nice bedding, linens, and a very well equipped kitchen including a dishwasher and disposal, which are rare in rental homes in the mountains. We thoroughly enjoyed using the large gas grill. We loved all the decks and the fact that they are secured so there was no fear of a dog getting loose while out on a deck. In addition, we accidentally left an item behind at the house and the housekeeper was very kind and responsive and found the item and sent it back to us very quickly. I cannot say enough about the quality of this property and the care that is taken of it. I highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a vacation rental around the Franklin or Highlands areas in North Carolina.
This place was awesome. Lots of room to stretch out. We had seven people and could easily have fit three more. There was a whole extra bedroom not even advertised. Secluded and quiet, but near lots of great attractions. Description should probably be changed since waterfall on property is no longer accessible, but there are tons more nearby. Well stocked kitchen was a highlight along with the modern furnishings throughout. Highly recommend.
We only get to go on a trip once a year, for a week., so we always like to have a great view. We loved the view of the mountains and valley. The fact that you had that view from every floor was a bonus. We also thoroughly enjoyed hanging out with the hummingbirds. I never realized they would get so close to you. Although some peripheral items could have used a cleaning, especially the ceiling fans, all the areas that you come into contact with were clean. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it for anyone looking for a peaceful getaway.
This house has plenty of space allowing for everyone to do their own thing or to all gather for a meal, movie, or game night together. The view is amazing! Breath-taking! From every level of the house and the large porches, you can see down the mountain and into the valley. We even saw an eagle flying across the valley one morning and there were several hummingbirds chirping around the feeder daily. We only had two dislikes with our stay. One was the hot tub - even though it was a nice model and very well placed, you cannot make it any hotter than 104. Not really a big problem, but this is the only thing we did not find to be absolutely perfect. The other dislike is that we had to leave. This is truly a beautiful home and well-maintained. We will visit again or maybe find a way to stay forever.
We have a group of bikers that go to the mountains every year. There are eight of us and we couldn't have found a better place to stay. This is our third trip to the cabin and we will be back next year. Great views and a very roomy place to stay.
Could not ask for a better stay. Quiet, clean and beautiful. Large well equipped house. Fireplaces, hot tub made our stay so cozy and relaxing. Will definitely be back! Already miss the view!
This property was perfect for our family vacation! Clean, well kept, close to town, and the view from the balcony is just amazing. The owners and caretakers were very responsive and made sure our stay was enjoyable and we had everything we needed. We had a lovely stay and look forward to visiting again in the future!
