We had wonderful rooms, mine especially as I got a really big room with a lot of windows to see mountain views from, loved my bed big,soft and comfy. Took my two Granddaughters, one is 9 yrs. old, other 17 yrs. old (cousins), they looved there room too. Older Granddaughter had a nice comfortable bed, and younger used trundle bed, she was quite content with it. Magnificent mountain views in just about every location on property. Al and Jill treated us very well, Al makes a great breakfast, when he realized the 9 yr. old is a picky eater, he cooked some things just for her, and Jill sat with us during breakfast and helped me navigate places I wanted to take my Granddaughters, even made phone calls for us. I liked the fire pit,and sitting at gazebo, it was so quiet,calming and peaceful. especially since I don't drive at night anymore. My granddaughters got good wi-fi, of course they had to change phones and tablet to the wi-fi available there. My laptop did very well with the wi-fi. Not very good cell service, but to be expected, The girls got the room with TV, small refrigerator, and microwave. Great to have frig as we took packed lunches and drinks each day. Had our own private bath, and girls room was directly across from me. Exceptionally nice, helpful owners, I'd recommend staying here for anyone who wants to "get away from it all".
My two special needs cats were welcome to come with me, and the pet fee is less than it would have been to board them. This is a major plus.
The 2 room suite was spotless, the king sized bed extremely comfy. The views from the windows were lovely, and walking down to the fire pit to watch the sunset was truly amazing with a view of mountains to the horizon. With the windows open and the ceiling fan on the rooms were comfy. I did note a heater in each room for winter months, but you'll never find me in the mountains for winter. The water pressure in the shower was enough for my very long, very thick hair to get a good wash. I cannot say this of every place I have stayed. I also did not run out of hot water, which again is not always the case everywhere. The rooms were big enough for me to spread a bit and not feel cramped, even with two animal playpens (one for each cat). I even had a private entrance.
there is a small dorm fridge and a microwave in the suite. I used the fridge and it kept everything very cold. The little freezer actually froze water, too. I have been to places where this was definitely not the case. I did not use the microwave so I cannot comment on it.
Located close to Linville Falls and many other gorgeous destinations. My goal for my vacation was to view scenery and relax. This was perfect. I didn't have to drive far to find parks and trails to pass the day and then I could watch the most spectacular sunset ever.
I woke up to the smell of breakfast every morning. Best breakfast ever. Everything was so fluffy and flavorful, not greasy at all, and each morning was different. Breakfast had four or five different parts, apart from the coffee and biscuits and juice. All cooked right there, on the stove, no microwaving anything here! all fresh chopped and cooked, and plenty of it. I wasn't hungry again until the evening.
The owners are very kind people and answered any questions I had. They were pleasant morning company at breakfast.
ok, the wifi isn't great but, hey, you're in the mountains. When I think of good signal I do not think of mountains. In fact to me mountains, especially secluded areas, automatically means poor signal and who goes to the mountains to spend their time using wifi anyway? I could check email, that was good enough for me. They had Direct TV if you wanted to watch something. If you want stellar wifi signal go to a big fancy hotel, but then you won't have the wonderful secluded atmosphere and convenience to the beauty of the Blue Ridge, and you certainly won't have that amazing breakfast.
I never heard their dogs bark. In fact if I hadn't seen them walking the dogs I wouldn't have known they were even there, except that we talked about dogs.
I really did not want to leave, but alas reality can only be ignored for so long. I will be booking with them again for my next trip.
