My partner and I chose this as we wanted a place away from our homes (he lives in Charlotte, 30 mins away and me in the Blue Ridge Mountains 2 hours away)to do some work on a website together and be in nature and be able to walk. The cabin was brand new. Must have been the first time anyone had stayed there because as soon as I laid on the bed..it collapsed :) I am 140lbs but the IKEA bed platform was plastic and not held together. It was replaced with a stronger frame from the adjacent cabin. We had moved the mattress up to the "loft" area which was cute and looked out over the lake. It was fun sleeping up there and I am sure kids would love it. Furniture was not very sturdy or practical overall if dealing with overweight people or children. Couch was black and showed every bit of lint. Bathroom was great. Tub was an added bonus. Kitchen was functional for just us 2, though no oven, or dishwasher (2 electric plates, and a microwave, tiny sink not very functional for a family washing a whole bunch of dishes by hand, huge fridge, and a coffee maker ). There were moments of peace, but a lot of airplane noise overhead and speed boat noise was loud especially on Sunday. We picked up a significant amount of litter from the "beach" area. Nowhere to walk on property other than the potholed paved road. We did enjoy the trails at the McDowell state park close by. This would appeal to city folk who are used to noises other than nature. Overall, we enjoyed staying there off-season as there weren't too many people around and we were able to have great wifi reception to work on our online project. Definitely a step up from camping and "glamping" is a good description for this property. Price very reasonable. Close to Charlotte so a fun getaway for an inner city person.
