4/5 Good

Great place in the mountains
Nice cozy mountain home in Seven Devils. Easy access to Hawksnest Snow Tubing and close to Sugar Mountain. Not far from Grandfather Mountain, Boone and Banner Elk! Home was clean and had plenty of the necessities that we needed for our two nights with our kids. We would stay again!!

3/5 Okay

Okay, but not worth the rental price.
The main reason we chose the place was its "no steps" to climb feature, which was great, because of my disability and my wife's knees. We enjoyed sitting on the deck. But- the place needs to addess these problems, to be worth the higher rental price compared to others we considered: windows that were screwed closed in the guest bedroom and one that had a sash that had to be propped up to stay open in the MBR. - we did not plan on using the hot tub, but it was so noisy that we had to unplug it. - we tried to follow the absurdly complicated instructions, but could not get the gas fireplace to start. It needs to be updated to work like anywhere else – with the flip of a switch. - the couch and chair in the living room were very low to the floor and so uncomfortable, that I left with a backache. - the washing machine did not work; luckily, we did not try it until the night before we left so it wasn’t needed for our short stay But as I said, the house needs some basic maintenance (e.g. paint the Master bath) and upgrades.

Labor Day Weekend
A beautiful abode, but....... I am a 73 year old disabled vet and my significant other, a 63 year old Lady. My 51 year old son and his wife were there also, just to say we are the type of folks who do appreciate the amenities and have a respect for the properties we rent. A few observations & suggestions: Fix the drain in the master bedroom, a new mattress perhaps in the guest bedroom (atrocious!); the hot tube used once, does not get very hot. A few simple amenities would also be appreciated, i.e. pepper (??), an implement or two for the out door grille and most importantly, a somewhat comfortable sofa. Honestly, the existing one looks great in the space, but sit on it and see if "you" would care to remain for more than a few minutes. Oh, the instructions when leaving, “clean the grille”, that should be a requirement upon arrival or prior to cooking (just so you know, we didn’t need to be told). “Wash all dishes and put them away”. Wouldn’t it have been okay to put them in washer, start the wash and leave them there. The last morning was no pleasure, no time for breakfast, barely for coffee, considering the washing and putting all away. We did sweep up a bit and organize what might have been out of place. We have in these past few years visited the mountains quite often for a long weekend. We will do it more and more but would we stay here again. Yes, it is a lovely home, great deck and view and all in all, a convenient space, if it had a different sofa! Thank you, John

Perfect location
Loved this place, not much from the outside but super comfortable inside, nice view of grandfather. I am interested in house purchase around Boone and Seven Devils seems perfect! Love the bird decorations. Will go again.
