Beautiful Views, Very Convenient
This was our first VRBO. The owner did a wonderful job at decorating the cabin and making it feel homey. The kitchen is stocked with very nice plates and utensils and every item one might need, including salt and pepper, coffee filters and sugar. The mattresses are good and linens very nice. There is tons of storage and even hangers, extra pillows and blankets are supplied. The bathrooms were nice as well with soap and shampoo which I didn’t expect!
It was great they permitted dogs, as we had a nice hike around Price lake with our dogs! How fun to finally be able to vacation with our dogs!
The view is outstanding. Unfortunately the autumn color this year is late so we were disappointed that the trees are still green as we booked to see the leaves. Mother Nature had other ideas, but it would be even better with fall color. The porch is nice as well. It is conveniently located right off of highway 321 and easy to find.
While we enjoyed the cabin, there were a few cons which the owner cannot help, but I wanted to note. Because it is very close to a 4 lane highway, there is traffic noise. So, loud motorcycles or trucks do impede the peacefulness on the deck.
Also, the cabin is very close to a main occupied house. It is maybe 20 or 25 yards from the house. The occupants and their dogs were not loud at all, but our dogs aren’t used to voices and other dogs next door, as our neighbors at home aren’t close. So, our dogs barked a lot at the voices, their dogs, their car etc next door.
This is really a “con” about our own dogs and likely wouldn’t be an issue for other renters. But, had the photos shown it was so close to a main house we wouldn’t have booked it, because our dogs aren’t used to close neighbors. We ended up leaving a night early, because the traffic noise and mostly our dogs barking made it not so peaceful to sit on the deck and relax, which is why we came to the cabin.
Finally, and this is very minor, the TV is in a really awkward place in the family room. It’s kind of more in the kitchen, facing the island. So it’s very difficult to watch from the family room. ... perhaps installing a swivel mount so you could face it towards the family room seating would help.
So, while we likely wouldn’t chose this particular cabin again, the owners take great care of the cabin, cleanliness, decor and lovely extras. I wouldn’t hesitate to rent from these owners again.
Thank for staying and being our guests. We are glad that you have found VRBO and hope you have many wonderful experiences with booking through this platform. Since you are a new visitor I thought I would express my appreciation for all the nice things you said. It is our goal to always have a special place that is ultimately clean and comfortable and like a home away from home! I would like to address a couple of things and expand upon them.
You mentioned that you loved the convenience to town and the location. We feel the same way! It is literally just 5 minutes into town but you have a private home where you can have your dog and a gorgeous view. With that you need to understand that in October it's our busiest season of the year and the town is crowded and noisy. At the cabin you can get away from most of it yet have the convenience to town. Yes, we may have a little noise especially at this time of year with all the visitors coming up, but I believe the sounds of the birds and nature far outweigh this. There are not many views in town and it is quite noisy if you are there.
We do offer pet friendly homes and our guests seem to enjoy this very much. We do say that on our website and an occasional bark would be expected if your pet is not used to other animals being nearby. In my experience all our our guests love their dogs and cats and understand. We have several guests that like to walk their dogs on a leash up on our private road so you may see them from time to time.
As far as proximity to the cabin. There is another home nearby but the cabin has a privacy fence on one side of the deck and a wooded lot and beautiful trees that have been added for additional privacy. You can't see the cabin guests from the home down below the cabin unless they are behind the cabin at the basement level. Even at the fire pit it is a very private area where you can enjoy the views.
I am saddened that I have been punished by your review in that I couldn't help the leaves haven't changed yet, that your dog barked and that the traffic is busy at this time of year. Reviews are important for other people to know about who and what we are.
Our why is that we love people, love our pets and really enjoy the beautiful serene mountain views even if sometimes a motorcycle goes by.
Please come and see us again. Reach out to me about your needs and I will try to accommodate them. We have several properties up here in Blowing Rock.
Our Stay at Elk Ridge Cabin
We loved this cabin. The views are even better than advertised. It was immaculately clean. Furniture, towels and linens were all of high quality. Beds were divinely comfortable. The fire pit was an absolute delight. We will be back.
Very nice property deck could use a cleaning
Thank you so much for your response and review. Yes, we have already scheduled a deck cleaning for this property. We always keep it blown off and neat. Thank you for the suggestion.
The property's location was ideal for visiting Blowing Rock and the surrounding area. The cabin was adequately supplied with linens and kitchen appliances. The cabin would be a cozy choice for 1 to 2 couples. We would definitely rent this property again.
My family and I have traveled to NC every year since our girls were 5 and 10. Sometimes twice a year. They are now 37 and 43, so now we travel with their families as well. This time was a girls trip with granddaughters and dog in tow. Of all the many places we stayed this was by far the cleanest and we'll stock with the most amazing views. With plenty of room outside for the kids and dog to enjoy (without falling down the mountain). They never wanted to come inside....and neither did the adults. The location could not be better and it was a pleasure to have such a great hostess. Thank you Lisa. We are already looking at some of your other properties to see what might also accompany the dads too. They were jealous of our stay.💚�😂�
Thank you so much for your gracious review. I am so glad that you love the cabin. I do have good news for you. We are adding another property to our list that has the same wonderful views and all the amenities that you would want. We call it the Barn and it has 4 bedrooms and three and a half baths. It has 2 king size beds and 2 queen. I can't wait to show it to the world!
Thank you for being our guests and we look forward to your next visit!
