Great getaway weekend cabin
This was a great cabin for a getaway weekend. Not so off the beaten path that it's a pain to get anywhere but out of the way enough that you feel at peace and in the woods (saw a couple of deer walking the dog). Blue Ridge was only ~20 minutes away where we went for dinner our first night. The majority of the roads were paved (the last mile-ish was gravel). GPS *WILL* get you there but if you follow the directions sent to you, *FOLLOW THEM PRECISELY USING THEIR LANDMARKS!!!* There are far too many "Old Hwy 5" and "Old State Rd 5" turn offs until you get to the right one. The kitchen had the necessities. They tell you in the check-in email what is there and isn't there - pay attention! If you plan on making your own meals, make sure you bring all the ingredients - including spray/oil if using any pots/pans. The cabin utilizes streaming services in lieu of cable/satellite. Worked great for us. There is also a double handful of movies on disk. Wi-Fi is available and was obviously fast enough to allow their Netflix to work so you can also bring your own streaming device if you have other options. My wife is a clean freak and kept commenting on how well they cleaned it - especially given that the owners allow dogs. There was no animal smell nor was there any dander/fur anywhere. I'm not sure our dog even noticed that others had been there. They also provide very nicely for dogs - a dog bed under the stairs, nice water and food bowl and a supply of poop bags. Hot tub was in great shape - quite possibly the best hot tub we've seen in a cabin. A note regarding the gravel road in ... at the intersection with the main/paved road it is severely rutted. You'll want to make sure you vehicle has decent ground clearance. I'm not saying a "normal" car wouldn't make it - it almost certainly will - but you'll be more comfortable in something with a little bit of clearance.
