I brought my 2 kids here mid February. I have a son 11 and daughter 14. When we walked in late at night all lights were on and heaters warming cabin. Was so inviting and the cleanest rental home I have ever stayed in. Was small but perfect for our needs. There was a lot of snow and ice the 5 days we were there. Would have loved to hike up the hill behind the cabin but too icey and cold. The little brook behind the cabin captivated my son with it partially frozen. Great place for our German Shepherd to run. She ran all over without a care in the world and no worries of traffic because we were at the top of the mountain and never saw cars. Bringing my kids back in August 2015 but dates are taken. Very sad we cannot return here. Everything was close. We went to Biltmore, Linville Caverns, skiing, gem mining all within 30 min or less.Great quiet location lots ofland and no neighbors.
