The Yummy Mud Puddle was a delightful rental! We loved the views from the back deck, before the rain socked in the mountains. It was a real treat to enjoy eating from the artists pottery plates and mugs. We bought some, and at every use I remark how beautiful they are. The hosts are great. The beds were really firm,...

Management response:

Thank you for your glowing review! We're very pleased you enjoyed your time at the Puddle and in Yancey county. We look forward to your return. Have a great Fall. Claudia and John of the Yummy Mud Puddle

Perfect for our needs. 3 good sized rooms and a large open kitchen/dining/family room area. The views off the deck of the app mountains are wonderful. Fun collection of old school VCR tapes. I wish we could have stayed more than a few days.

Management response:

Thank you, Glen, for your review! We're thrilled you had a good time while at the Puddle. We hope you'll visit again soon and stay longer. We have an even larger collection of fine films at the main house we are happy to share. Thanks again, Claudia and John
