Fabulous Stay
We had a wonderful time at Laurelwood Lodge. I had originally decided to take my children to Asheville for Spring Break. It quickly turned into family members driving and flying in to join us. The Gissendanner's had no problem accommodating a last minute booking for us. Directions were clear and Kim even checked in on us to make certain we had everything we needed. The cabin was clean and spacious. My children enjoyed playing in the game room downstairs and hiking the streams and waterfall in the Riverbend community. We saw a lot of wildlife including many deer, which thrilled my boys. I enjoyed my morning coffee in the rocking chairs on the large deck overlooking a small brook, pasture, and wooded area. It was beautiful, calm, and relaxing. We grilled and cooked at the cabin and were pleased to find a kitchen stocked with good cookware. To our delighted surprise we even found a deck of pinochle cards in a kitchen drawer. I cannot think of a better way to enjoy friends and family. The pictures do not do the cabin justice. The cabin is 2 miles from a grocery store for anything we may need as well as close to Lake Lure and Chimney Rock. We drove into Asheville to the Biltmore for a day. The trip was not long, it took around 35 - 40 minutes, and it was a beautiful drive. My only regret is that we did not stay longer! We will definitely book this cabin again in the future. Thank you Kim for a wonderful VBRO experience. Naomi Wallis
