All of my guests so far have been pleasantly surprised at what a great deal this is. It is 1200 sq. ft. all to yourself, very private, no shared space. Also it is secured with locks, although I have never needed to lock anything here. Nestled in the woods yet only 1/10 mile off of Highway 105. Near all the local attractions, Grandfather Mtn., 3 ski slopes, Mast Store, Tweetsie Amusement Park, and Blowing Rock.
