Very helpful and very nice. Had to call about my reservation confirmation and they were very helpful. They also called us on the day we arrived to make sure we found the property and had no issues. Great location - close to Fontana Lake which was the reason for our visit. Parking was a little difficult because we had a boat. Overall very happy with the cabin. Nice size, very private. Liked having the master bedroom with a king size bed on the main floor. Also a very large bathroom in the master which was nice. Spent a lot of time out on the large deck with the fire pit and hot tub.

They made it very easy and were very polite. It was a nice stay. It is up off the road by itself which is nice when you're "getting away". There is a beautiful river on the way in to the cabin. And its close to plenty of attractions.

Our Family of 5 and our dog spent Thanksgiving here. Wheat a wonderful cabin. We had such a relaxing vacation. There was something for all of us to do. There were many family games of Monopoly around the fire at night. I am going to miss the hot tub and the heated bathroom floors!

The cabin was so awesome and relaxing. My husband and I spent our honeymoon here and returning. There was a red bird that kept visiting. The guest manual was very helpful and we were glad it was here. We also found things not in the manual that was fun.

What a beautiful getaway. My Boyfriend booked this on a last minute idea for a weekend trip to the mountains. What an awesome find. We brought the bike and went to NOC and the Trail of the Dragon and got back in time to relax in the hot around the fire. Thank you for sharing! IT was a perfect relaxing weekend.
