Wow! Even before we got to the cabin we knew we were in for a treat: right off the Blue Ridge Parkway! Jills directions made it easy to find. We’ve stayed at many cabins over the years and this is by far the nicest one. Most “dog-friendly” cabins are at least a little “sub-standard”, definately not the case here! We brought our two dogs with us and couldn’t believe they were allowed to be there. The cabin is BEAUTIFUL and very clean.The photos on the website didn’t do it justice. Jill thought of everything to make her guests feel at home including games to play & even a washer and dryer!! Although there was ample info on area attractions and Jill was available for any questions or suggestions, we chose to spend most of our time at the cabin enjoying the hot-tub and the solitude, although I would definately recommend making a trip into town (Spruce Pine); a very charming small town with unique shops. On a scale of 1-10 (10 being the best) this cabin was/is a 12! We will definately be returning!
