Older house but well maintained
The house is nice and clean and everything works even though it hasn't been updated in quite a while. The dehumidifiers helped; they made some noise but not that bad.
Great location, a very scenic front porch to relax on, and the ping pong table and paddles were in great condition. Beds were fairly firm; there was a bunk bed in the pictures/description that had been replaced by a single bed, so we had to make do with 1 less bed than advertised (The listing has been fixed already).
The driveway is dirt/grass/gravel and was a little rutted; very low (modified) cars may struggle but it isn't too steep so it was navigable. Parking space was ample and the garage spaces were nice (can squeeze in 3 small cars, many more outside).
The owner's information packet was thorough and helpful.
Overall the house was nice and our vacation went well.
I always appreciate it when a renter can give a constructive review. And I think this was that. However it did not take into consideration that this winter and spring were one of the wetest in recent times. And it did take it's toll on my road.
That has been addressed and the road is in great condition a gain. I always hope my guests are comfortable and enjoy the mountain's as I do.
Relaxing get away
We just returned from a week stay at the Dogwood Ridge Mountain Home and I would likely recommend this house to anyone that just wants to have a nice quiet relaxing vacation away from it all. It has more than adequate space, and all the amenities you will need (except towels). There are only 6 bath towels for 3 bathrooms so if you need more you better bring them ahead of time because its several miles to town. The view is amazing and just what the doctor ordered for a relaxing time. Perfect for a family getaway. We stayed when the weather was extremely cold and this home was plenty warm for it's size. I hope we can come back someday and stay in the summer so the kids can play in the creek below. The creek and the barn with a fence around it below the house made the perfect back drop for family photos. Hope everyone had as good a time as we did. This house is centrally located to all the bigger towns like Bryson city, Franklin, Murphy & Maggie Valley. Looking forward to my next trip here with the family.
Linda Thank you for your kind review. Concerning the towel issue, in the packet of info it states that there will be only 6 towels and if you think you may need more it would behoove you to bring some. I am glad you and your family enjoyed yourselves and hope to see you again. Thank you for being understanding about this and other issues. God Bless Gary Stoltz
We loved the house and location. Stayed with my family and it worked great for us. Everything you could ever need was provided in the kitchen.Large dinning table for 8. Downstairs was perfect for the kids to have their own space. Plenty of seating in the living room. We never heard any noise from that area if we were down the hallway in the bedrooms. Loved the deep tub/shower in the main bathroom. Porch had the most amazing beautiful view. Quiet dead end street. We would defiantly return.
Thank you for your kind review. We will continue to try to make your experience enjoyable. The mountains are the perfect backdrop for a great vacation. Thanks again.
Overall I would say this is a decent place. I'll get right down to the positives and negatives for you. The front porch overlooking a small stream is absolutely the best place to have morning coffee. The beds were comfortable and the property was clean. We were in the area to ride motorcycles and really only used the house as a place to sleep however the owners do provide WiFi and if your family wanted a little quality time off from electronics, there is a ping pong table and board games provided.
Now for the part I always dislike about reviews, the not so good. The house smelled very musty and stays damp. Our bedsheets felt damp at night because we had to leave the windows open to get cool air. The window units just don't keep the upstairs bedrooms cool enough. We had many uninvited house guests in the form of very large spiders. This property needs a professional exterminator to spray. For what we used it for, it was ok but the house needs some updates. The 70's shag carpet has a unique feel on bare feet...recommend you bring some house shoes or sandals. This is my first VRBO experience so I wasn't sure how this normally goes but we had to provide toilet paper and paper towels which I thought odd but maybe not, also need to bring extra bath towels. Overall, I would rent this place again for a guys trip but would consider other options if I were taking my family on vacation.
Thanks for your review. I,m glad that you enjoyed the area and am always looking for a way to improve the house and I appreciate your suggestions. I have many reviews and many families that enjoy the house.
Very large, clean, ample garage parking
We went down for Miatas at the Gap. This was about 20 minutes from Fontana Village. The place was a little hard to find the mailbox/driveway due to grass but overall Google got us there. The place was clean and as described. Driveway is narrow with a sharp turn halfway up so you may not want to bring a trailer up there. Other than that was great place to set up camp. Would stay there again! Although we did not end up bringing our dog, we are always happy with such pet friendly places.
Wonderful family vacation!!
We truly enjoyed every bit of our time spent at Dogwood Ridge! From our morning coffee out on the balcony in the canopy of trees to the beautiful creek that the kids loved playing in... we enjoyed every bit of our time here!
Thanks for the kind review. I am glad you enjoyed the mountains and the house.
Certains de nos activités préférées sont la randonnée, le rafting (eau blanc et d'eau douce), le vélo et traîner juste. Nous utilisons notre moto pour monter les belles routes de l'ouest du NC. Retour Equitation est à proximité.
Il ya plusieurs terrains de golf dans un court et à moyen voiture de la maison. Waynesville a 3 cours ils sont un peu difficile. Whittier a un parcours ludique qui vous emmène le long de la montagne. Franklin et Murphy ont un couple de bons cours que vous apprécierez.
