Awesome family getaway
Our family of 4 (2 adults, 1 teen, & 1 child age 10) came to NC to escape the heat of FL & spend some bonding time relaxing & going on adventures. This was not our first trip to the mountains of NC, so we had high expectations...they were met & exceeded! We had extended family staying near by so we spent time with them as well. It was so nice to be able to spread out in the spacious cabin after a long day, our older child took the loft area & our younger had his own downstairs "apartment" (which caused a little contention between the 2, as the older one didn't check out the downstairs before claiming the loft, lol). We enjoyed breakfast on the porch most mornings, taking in the spectacular views & watching all the amazing hummingbirds. We spoke with Marty, the owner, several times before arriving & she was so kind & accommodating, making sure that we had everything we needed so our vacation was a success! We did not smell any must or anything foul, period, in fact the cabin was so much more than we anticipated!! The weather was beautiful, warm during the days & cool at night, which made sleeping with the windows open a treat. I personally enjoyed being able to do yoga & exercise in the refreshing morning air out on the porch. The cabin was equipped with everything we needed, including laundry detergent which meant I had little to do but unpack when we arrived home, bonus for me! I highly recommend this property for families or several couples looking for a quiet, comfortable, relaxing "home base" in the NC mountains!! Some fun activities I recommend are zip lining in Highlands (about 30-40 mins away), there's also a fun tubing slide that is used in both Summer & winter near the zip line place, hiking to the many waterfalls, horseback riding at Chuncky Gal stables was great (they're about 1 1/2 hours away), & exploring the town of Highlands. Of course these are just a few that we enjoyed, but the possibilities for fun are endless. One word of warning, unless your cell service is AT&T you'll be lucky to get a signal most places (but on vacation we were glad for that), however the cabin has a landline phone & the WiFi in the cabin is fantastic so if you need access you'll have it there. Enjoy your trip!! 😃
