“Great place!”
Reviewed 27 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We loved the cabin! We planned this trip to go to Mt. Airy and this cabin was a real find. The place was really nice and we loved the area. Everything about the cabin was great. I did make a couple of suggestions for the suggestion box. A listing of close by grocery stores and restaurants and the distance from the cabin would have been really nice. Even copies of menu's to look at. The only other problem we had was trying to figure out the electric heater and the light switches. Never could figure out how to turn on the spots in the kitchen. Other than that, we would certainly stay there again. I have to say it was a pleasure to not have to worry about bringing condiments since this cabin is fully stocked that way! Thank you for a great time!

I am a single father and decided to bring my 3 kids ages 10/15/16 up to the mountains to get away for a bit. The drive through the mountains was gorgeous but when we got to the cabin we were amazed. The cabin was clean, neat, and stunning both inside and out. It had everything that we needed and more. The list of things to do in the area really helped. We went to the Candy Factory as recommended and the kids loved it! We also traveled to Winston Salem one day and Carowinds Amusement park another day, both were within driving distance. The fishing was on and off due to it still being cool out but my girls caught fish on night crawlers and I managed to catch a few bass on plastic worms!! Would go back again in a heart beat!! Thanks for the memories!!

This property is a gem. Two couples and a shih tzu. The gas fireplace made it cozy. Appreciated the wi-fi/internet access (would've missed our NCAA BBall game otherwise!). Enjoyed a rather longish reading spell from the porch swing. The guys did a lil fishing in the well stocked pond early one morning. Made s'mores in the fire pit after dark. My daughter and her spouse were thrilled by the loft bedroom. Just too many thoughtful touches to name, such as the really nice body wash in the walk in shower, the full-sized coffee pot, coffee and filters, bread and eggs (perhaps left by previous guest(s), strawberry preserves, garbage bags, laundry detergent, dishwashing liquid, AL foil, dishwasher tabs, olive oil, etc. AND, it was clean; we could see that without looking hard. Being able to open the windows to enjoy the fresh air rejuvenated us. It felt safe and peaceful so we took several long walks though we could have made the short drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Cooked our meals and decided the food and the water just tasted better here. We felt rested and ready to face the challenges ahead as we drove away. Yeah--pretty lucky to have found this cabin and definitely plan to return.

“Great Place to get away.”
Reviewed 29 January 2016 for a stay in September 2015

A few of my girl friends and I rented the cabin for a little girl time , We had the best time , the cabin was beautiful , the porch was fantastic , sitting there , looking out towards the mountains ! We made smores at the fire pit , tried to fish in the pond they had beautiful landscaping , with the prettiest flowers , it's not far from WalMart , so we shopped , and cooked , the kithch had everything you would need. I could go on & on , Jodee is a sweet heart. When you leave there you feel new and refreshed & hating that you have to leave. Can't say enough.

We came to Fancy Gap and stayed at the Almost 5 o'clock cabin and it was beautiful. The cabin was clean and full of amenities. We brought our dog and it was pet friendly. We fished, hiked, did some sight seeing and it was great. We will be back. Thanks

This cabin was one of the nicest I've ever rented. The owners are very helpful and so friendly and they made us feel so comfortable and even had dog treats out for our dog. It was so clean, I thought maybe we were the first people to ever stay there, but after reading the guest book, I realized that was not the case. The beds are very comfortable and I LOVED the gas fireplace. Everything we needed was there and every surface, towel, linen was very clean. The owners also sent us information about things to do including a very detailed map of a drive through some breathtaking countryside. I look forward to returning to this awesome retreat!
