"Staff was friendly. They called twice to ask if I had any questions about the booking and the checking in process. They have a military discount! Which was exciting news and they were very responsive via email when I had questions prior to booking. The Cabin was beautiful and spacious, the sheets were clean and it was in a good location. Keyless entry, no contact necessary. The only small issue was with the jet tub, it hadnt been used in a while so it had mold. I had to clean it out myself but other than that everything was perfect. The kids loved it just as much has the adults."

"The pictures are exactly how you find the cabin. Very spacious, well divided and well maintained. Only thing was not a big enough yard or area around cabin for kids to explore. Close to everything and close to main road which is nice. We accidentally left a bag behind and property management was very quick and helpful to locate it and ship to our home. Very grateful for that. Overall, great place to disconnect and have some family time."

"This home was perfect for our group! There were several sleeping/visiting areas. Everyone could spread out and have their own space. We would absolutely visit again! Please know that the driveway is super steep - not at all a problem for us. It could be hard for some. Very nicely designed and happy house!"

"This house perfectly suited our needs. The master bedroom was great and there were multiple other sleeping and hang-out areas. Everyone (including my dog) had a place to be. I was especially happy that the front porch was dog-worthy. The rungs are close enough together to prevent escape and there is a solid gate. The single draw-back is the driveway and we were able to cope with it ok. Would definitely stay again!"

"For price and location I give it 5 stars. My only suggestion is to maybe simply or minimize the kitchen cabinets. The overflowing amount of pots, pans, plates, bowls etc made it just seem overwhelming and cluttered. The beds were comfortable, game room was a huge hit with the kids and us parents alike. Been years since I played those games! Overall we enjoyed ourselves tremendously and look forward to renting this cabin again in the near future."

From the kitchen, to the bedrooms and baths— everything was great. The boys enjoyed the dart board and we took morning walks each day! We were in town for a college field hockey game and it was easy to get back and forth to Appalachian State (we were the visiting team) Coffee on the porch each morning was the best !"

"We stayed in this home last year and it is cozy and very good for our purpose. Several updates including central air on the main floor make it very nice in the summer. The only thing that keeps me from giving this cabin a 5 star rating is the driveway. It is steep and a bit tricky the first time you get in and out. Remember how it is done and it is okay but it is a challenge. Definitely four wheel drive in the winter."

"We had a great time! Accommodations for sleeping were perfect except for the queen mattress in the upstairs bedroom. It definitely needs to be replaced. We enjoyed making dinner and found that there was more than enough silverware, plates, and cookware. The location was spot on! We were 20 minutes from everything - zip lining, white water rafting, dinner, mountains, waterfalls... 4th of July we went to Sugar Mountain for a ski lift to the top for an amazing firework show. Be sure to bring extra toilet paper and paper towels. GREAT CABIN IN THE MOUNTAINS!"

"Really cute cabin! It can definitely sleep at least 12 comfortably. No one in our party smokes and it was expressed that there was a strict no smoking policy but there were several cigarette butts on the premise. The only other downfall is that you can only have two cars on the property so unless your entire party is arriving in two cars the other cars have to park elsewhere and carpool and the driveway is very short and extremely steep. But the cabin was clean and cozy and we enjoyed our stay!"

"Found several dead spiders, dirt particles, dust, hair, clothing and wrappers. The bed sheets on downstairs bed were not fitted correctly and kept coming off. Looks like a smaller size sheet was on the queen bed. The heating system in the house needs some major adjusting. When on, its terribly hot in the basement, but still cold on the top floor bedroom. The door to the bedroom would need to say open to get some heat in. The wall heating unit in this bedroom is not working. When heat is off, the basement is freezing cold. (THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONCERNS. THE OWNERS HAVE ADDED A HEATER FOR THE LOWER LEVEL AND WE ARE ADDRESSING ANY CLEANING ISSUES. THANK YOU, ---MGT)
Team was great and responded in a timely manner."

The booking process was very easy. In fact everything was really simple. We decided to head out to the mountains at the last minute. We were able to book the property and received all the information we needed to access the property via email within minutes after booking. We arrived later at night and there was no need to pick up keys to enter the premises. We received an access code and as soon we arrived we accessed the property without hassles. The best experience so far!"

"We loved Grandfather Vista. It was a beautiful and immaculately maintained home. Our kids were thrilled with the game room downstairs. We had plenty of room to eat, sleep and relax. The views from both porches were breath taking. The property was easy to get to, close to 105 and many activities/shops. One of the beds (double, upstairs) is missing a mattress. The bed is made with a down pad on top of two boxsprings.
The property and everything else was awesome."
