I cannot write enough about Elaine's house. The property is beautiful, the views are otherworldly and the interior style made us feel at home. We enjoyed coffee on the porch swing every morning and wine by the fireplace in the evenings. I cannot remember the last time we had such a relaxing weekend. The location allows for easy access to the Parkway and lots of hiking options. Elaine was a great host, she responds to messages quickly and efficiently.

Awesome place. Gorgeous Blue Ridge mountain sunset view every evening. Our two week stay was great in every way. The spacious home is well appointed with art including the owners fine line of pottery. There is an ease in everyday living. All the essentials are provided. Sitting on a remote hilltop, the quiet and solitude suited us well after long days of study at Penland. Only twenty minutes from two fun towns, Spruce Pine and Burnsville. Each has several superb restaurants and good shopping options. The landscaping completes the serene feeling of this hideaway. Hummingbirds and swallow tail butterflies flocked daily to the open spaces around the cabin. In all, Elaine's place is more special than we had imagined. We will definitely stay again next time we're in this area.

It was a beautiful setting. House is a nice size. If it is hot, then the lack of AC may be a comfort issue for some. Loved the porch and swing.

If you like a cozy yet roomy house, filled with great art and art energy with a stunning view, then this is the place for you. My wife and I stayed for three nights and could have stayed a week. The lot is secluded and the house has everything you need to set up and settle in. We loved eating off of all the pottery china. The fireplace draws as well as any fireplace I'd ever used and gave us two nights of great fires. And Elaine was great, answering all of our questions and even gave us a little more time checking out since no one else was arriving that day. I would highly recommend her place.

The pictures don't do this place justice, it's BEAUTIFUL! We enjoyed the peacefulness of the view and the fire place. We will be back!

The cabin is lovely with a large open living area and two good sized bedrooms. The views cannot be beat! The wood box stocked with kindling and various sizes of wood was very convenient and much appreciated. We thoroughly enjoyed the fireplace! I cannot say enough good things about this cabin and Elaine, who was incredibly responsive and quick to answer our questions.

I can't say enough about this view! It's rare to find a place with sunset long-range views and this place has it. We had wonderful weather all weekend and spent most of our time outside. Elaine was great and provided great check-in instructions, coffee, a grill and anything else we needed.

I am an artist and my husband Bill is involved in politics. We live in a restored 1881 Victorian house in Ohio and enjoy the beauty and quiet of our mountain home in N Carolina and are looking forward to sharing it with you.
