"We bought our 3 teen girls and their best friends on a holiday trip to ski & see snow. Many of them had never seen it. This house was perfect for what we needed. The teens only complaint was the wifi didn't work very well so they had to disconnect from the tv and phones more often. haha. They survived. The master bed was SUPER comfy! The house was beautiful and the location was amazing."

"We went to the Cardinals Nest to get away from the Florida heat. We wanted fresh cool air, open windows and the sound of a babbling brook to relax to. What we got was a cabin with alot of religious overtones and completely inaccessible area of water that has signs for no fishing. Not sure where they want you to kayak or tube like they say in the description. The water is not for any of that. Then when you add the incredibly loud highway right at the base of the house, it was terrible. Non stop truckers, weekend cars squealing their tires, just continuous noise. So much so we couldn’t even enjoy the outside patio or rocking chairs or leave any windows open. We did bring this to the attention of the rental company ASAP and moved. It’s unfortunate that the rental company did not help us in getting a partial refund for false advertising and yet we used them to find our second property. The owners should be notified that they need to redo their listing to accurately describe the cabin."

"We woke up sweating in the middle of the night our first night there. Both thermostats were set to 71 but the temperature on the main floor was 80. Called the property managers about the issue at 9: 30am the next morning. They were very kind, caring & attentive on the phone. Customer service person showed up at 4: 59 that afternoon. Not an HVAC person. A customer service person. He was kind and caring and nice but he could only theorize about what the problem was and was not equipped to attempt to fix it. His parting words were "I hope it doesn't get hot again tonight. " It was a very warm February so we opened doors / windows to cool the house off. Amazingly, doing so worked pretty well for the rest of our stay. We loved the property and felt very good about 95% of it. We would rate the property itself as very good. If we could be assured that future renters would not have the same HVAC issue we had, we would rate it even higher. Since future renters may make their decision based on our experience, we cannot. In summary - Beautiful home. Pretty well equipped. Kitchen needs more pots/pans/baking sheets/kitchen tools. Basement TV never worked. We couldn't even find the remote for it but it wasn't that big of a deal because we loved talking, hanging out & playing ping pong. Excellent gas grill. Comfortable furniture & beds. Well done bathrooms. Hard to figure out how to lock the doors but pretty easy once you see the small sticker on the edge of the door."

"We loved our stay at Cardinals Nest. The house is beautiful and well maintained. Our party of 10 (five adults, and five kids ages 6-12) slept comfortably and there was plenty of room for everyone to spread out. The kitchen was well-stocked with sufficient pots, pans, utensils, etc. for making meals for a large group. Easy access to Beech Mountain, Sugar Mountain, and Hawks Nest. We were lucky enough to be there when the area got a good foot of snow and it was absolutely beautiful."

"This was sort of adequate for our stay. The kitchen was woefully under-equipped. We could hardly get through 1 meal with the number of forks provided. The number of seats at the able does not match of number of people who could stay in the house and 1 person had to use a stool. There were dust bunnies. The cold water handle does not work in the upstairs bathroom. The only fry pan's non-stick coating was really warn and scratched (not healthy/safe). I am sure I am forgetting things. The fireplace works nicely!"

"Beautiful cabin. We weren’t able to ask ahead of time for a later checkout so we asked in the allowed time and never got a response from the company. There were empty water bottles, tons of dust bunnies, and empty wine corks left on the floor. Could be cleaned by staff better, but overall a beautiful property with a good lay out, no neighbors literally on top of you, and the gas logs didn’t work."

"The property was in a beautiful and serene location as well as easy to locate and access. It was well taken care of and the communication was seamless. The house was spacious and accommodated our party of 7 adults and 2 children very well. There were only a few lackluster items in the kitchen such as missing coffee filters, dull knives, etc. This made our morning a bit challenging since we decided to cook breakfast in the house and we had to go grab coffee on the road. I am sure some of this was an oversight and not something that would dissuade us from staying here again. Overall, our group enjoyed our stay here."

"This is a wonderful cabin with plenty of space and modern conveniences! The area is peaceful and quiet and you will enjoy the babbling brook below. The cabin has 3 separate deck areas and a recreational space downstairs. You are just 10 minutes from Banner Elk where you can find restaurants and shopping. I definitely recommend staying here if you are looking to visit the Banner Elk/Sugar mountain area!"
