Great view

  • 4 of 5

Stayed with family for a week. Ken the owner is great to work with. We had some issues but they were resolved immediately. The view of Roan Mountain is wonderful. The pool table was a big hit since we had alot of rain. The driveway is gravel and very steep. House is clean. Make sure you bring your own toilet paper and trash bags as the house does not supply. The horses below the property were a treat. They were very friendly even with our dog. It is a hit further than Bakersville. Fishing nearby.

This place is a dream

  • 5 of 5

Since the first day we arrived at North Carolina I could tell this was going to be an amazing experience. This trip was totally different from us cause we come from Miami, Fl and coming here is was like a different world. When we arrived at the house it was way better then what I saw on the pictures. The view is amazing and inside the house is super beautiful. The owner is very helpful and when I need him for something he will reply right away. This place is calm and we were lucky to see a little snow so we were happy about that. My 2 favorite place in the house is the sun room and the basement. We will for sure come again with our family here.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do justice to this lovely property. The view was breathtaking, the house very lovely and very clean. We had 9 adults and several children of all ages and all of us found it spectacular. The finished basement was a lovely place for the family to gather. It is a walkout basement so once again a very nice view. The roads leading to the house are well maintained but a bit curvier than we were expecting but we live in a flat-land area so we are not used to mountains. The driveway to the house is steep but we encountered no issues with any of our trucks or cars. The owner was very prompt and kind when replying to our questions. It was evident that he takes a lot of pride in the house and property. There is a great Wal-Mart about 30 minutes away which we found very helpful for groceries and last minute Christmas gifts. Near the Wal-Mart there were also a few eating establishments and a gas station. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this property to others.

Great long-range views and friendly, responsive owner

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 8 enjoyed our stay here...especially our time together sitting in the sunroom enjoying the great views and watching the leaves turning colors every day. Awesome sunsets!! The huge dining room table was awesome and the layout of the kitchen was very workable with lots of people. The doors on the refrigerator and dishwasher do not stay closed or opened correctly. We used a bungee cord to hold the fridge door closed. We did not understand that there was no bathroom upstairs with the two bedrooms...just an FYI. We enjoyed walking around on the property and feeling like we were really getting away from it all. Ken was very friendly and helpful.

Owner's Response: thank you for your kind words; More importantly, thank you for bringing those issues to my attention; I have had both the refridgerator and the dishwasher repaired, and they are good as new. I really appreciate when my guests point out imperfections in my properties so that I can quickly remedy any unacceptable situation. I hope that you will consider staying with us again in the future. Ken

Remote and peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Roan Mountain! The house was very nice and clean. The property was huge and there was lots of room to run and play in the fields and hike up the mountain. Ken was very helpful during our stay and was available for questions. FYI: Although there were other houses around, there aren't any businesses - it is a pretty remote location. The closest town I think was Bakersville, which was about 20 mins away. It worked for us, we came prepared!
