Nice cozy couple getaway
We drove to NC with our puppy for a nice getaway and to snowboard. The location was great as it was minutes away from the slopes. If you go when it is snowing, I strongly suggest having a 4WD vehicle with good tires, and/or invest in tire snowchains regardless. My jeep had no problems, but there were a few times I considered throwing on the chains. Getting up the driveway in the show will be difficult if you do not have 4WD or chains. My jeep had no problems, but I also have mud/snow tires. We saw some front-wheel-drive cars sliding up the mountain during the snowstorm without chains. The listing was very accurate and the directions given were spot on. The GPS on my phone was not correct when trying to find the property, so definitely use the directions given. There is a lot of room in the home. We did not use the upstairs, but it looked cozy. If you go in the winter, I strongly suggest bringing extra blankets and firewood if you have room. We brought a LOT of firewood, and still ended up buying more on our 4 night stay. I am not sure the heater there actually works because it was ZERO degrees some days/nights. The property was clean and it seemed well maintained. The owners were accommodating and had no complaints. There are a lot of dishes and cooking items to use. Plenty of bath towels and bathroom basics (just bring your toothbrush/paste and shampoo). If you need to wash clothes, bring your detergent. Thankfully, we also found a space heater in the closet, which we used the entire trip. Besides the lack of heat, I think the only thing needed was some thread lock on the fireplace tools or just a new set in general. They kept unscrewing. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a nice getaway. The slope is right around the corner. Fred's store in town is close and has lots of supplies (groceries, snow gear, firewood, and more). We went to the Brick Oven Pizzeria, which was perfect after a cold night of snowboarding in a blizzard (very delicious). We did not really eat anywhere else as we brought food to cook. Buying groceries at Fred's is very high priced. I did not see a gas station either. People were really nice there too. All-in-all, I will book here again. We had a great time.
