We had such a nice relaxing stay.  We loved the hot tub for relaxing evenings after sight seeing in W. Jefferson.  What a beautiful cabin in the woods you have here.  We don't have these as much in Texas.  Hopefully we can get back here in the summer time to enjoy these woods even more. Thank you!

Even though it rained all weekend we got plenty to do and enjoyed the hot tub.  It rained all weekend so unfortunately we weren't able to use the fire pit, corn hole, etc.  Awesome relaxing stay. We will be back!  Thank you very much everything was perfect!

Truly relaxing.  Enjoyed every moment recharging and relaxing.  We liked the tranquility and remoteness, but still within minutes of any needs.  Great stay and enjoyed ourselves.  Will be back again and will refer others.  The stay was almost like home but far better.  Thanks once again for the enjoyable time.

We enjoyed our stay greatly!  We came up here for my 40th birthday and it was everything we could have wanted and more.  The cabin was wonderful, they have anything and everything you could possibly need or want here.  The nearby towns were also great, extremely friendly people.  Very beautiful, we will definitely be back here in the near future.  Thank you.

The thing we liked the most was being so secluded, but close enough to run into town for what you might need.  The yard was so so great.  So much area to move around on.  In the past we have rented homes in the Mountains, Only to use the house and porch or deck...no outside space. There's so much to do outside weather permitting at Wil-deer-ness Cabin.  My wife and I really enjoyed the cabin and all it had to offer.  Great location, very clean, and very affordable. Out of all the cabins we've rented in the last 6 or 7 years; Wil-deer-ness cabin has moved to the top of our list.  We WIL-B-BACK.

We loved how easy the entire experience was.  The cabin was easy to find, it was clean and we loved all the notes around the house that told us where to find things!  We were able to relax and just enjoy our stay there without worry.

We really enjoyed your cabin.  We have stayed in other cabins in the area and this one by far is the BEST!  You've made it very easy with all the instructions thru-out the house.  Last but not least the hot tub was amazing and relaxing.  We will definitely be back!

This is our second stay at Wil-deer-ness!  We love to get away, have peace & quiet!  We love the privacy!  Not much trafic at all.  Of course we love the hot tub!  We were in it within 45 mins of our arrival!  The cabin this time and the first time was very clean.  Thanks for all the note reminders around the cabin.  Kitchen had all we needed.  Can't wait for our next stay! You have such a wonderful place here and we will be back!  Thanks so much!

Had a nice stay at your cabin.  It is remote enough that you have privacy and close enough to town that you have town.  Lovely secluded cabin perfect for getting away from EVERYTHING and that made it perfect for our honeymoon.  Will be back.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful cabin with us!  We had a blissful 2 days away from the rest of the world.  The cabin had everything we needed and more and everything was so well labeled and easy to find.  We enjoyed the hot tub, fire pit, outdoor speakers and hammock as well as relaxing with our coffee on the front porch every morning.  Cabin was great - had everything we needed already.  Really enjoyed the small touches like the outdoor speakers, little funny signs, plastic glasses for use outdoors, everything! We will be back for sure in the spring.  Thanks so much!  Great experience!

Wildeerness Cabin provided the perfect getaway for our two year anniversary.  Our weekend was spent cooking lunches and dinners in the kitchen and outdoors on the grill.  We loved star-gazing in the bubbly hot tub at night.  The cabin is gorgeous and we had a wonderful time on our first visit to Wildeerness.  Looking forward to our next visit already!

We loved it and hope to return soon.  Our only regret was we did not get to use the fireplace or outdoor fire pit (too windy).  LOVE IT, THANKS!

Sad that we must leave and go back home.  Being here was a wonderful escape from the day to day hussle and bustle.  We loved the fall decorations that were in the yard when we arrived and also the beautiful towel swans, rose petals & wine on ice in our bedroom.  Just so romantic for our 10 year anniversary.    I have an Aunt & some cousins that live in Jefferson & West Jefferson and we enjoyed so much seeing them a couple of times while in the mountains.  We had the pleasure of traveling the parkway one day & visiting Linville Caverns & Blowing Rock then coming back to the cabin to relax.  The following day, we picked up where we left off on the parkway & drove all the way to Stone Mt.  Along the drive that day, we had the pleasure of seeing a doe & her fawn.  There were so many overlooks & even the small ones had beautiful scenery.  Our anniversary was on the 11th and we enjoyed a wonderful dinner at "The Old Hotel Restaurant" in West Jefferson.  We hope that we'll be able to come back.  Thank you so much for everything!

The privacy and location of the cabin was great!  We wanted to do so much and see everything, tried to get our relax time in.  The cabin was very inviting for quiet time, which we did get some of it in.  Hopefully we can return next year.  The extras - Roses, Wine, Rose Petals on the bed - made my wife feel extra special, which she is.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  For providing a wonderful and relaxing place to stay.  This has been a long awaited for "honeymoon" for me & my husband.  We walked around downtown West Jefferson and went to the "Haunted House" at the old Lansing school.  But the best part was just spending time together at the cabin.  Thank you!

We liked the privacy of the cabin.  No cars running up and down the street.  Got to spend quality time with my wife.  Something we needed for a long time.  We fell in love all over again.  The favorite parts of our trip was ALL OF IT.  Everything was perfect.  I can't think of anything that I would change.  The only regret that we have is that we didn't find this piece of paradise sooner.

PS - We got to see two does on our last day here.  Beautiful!

We love the Wildeerness Cabin!  What a beautiful relaxing place.  We loved the secluded private quiet location.  The cabin is warm, cozy and has everything you could possibly need to relax and enjoy your vacation.  The hot tub was great and we liked having all the amenities like WiFi, DVD, stereo with outdoor speakers and TV.  We enjoyed the hammock, porch rockers and having an evening campfire.  We enjoyed the scenic drive there and to Boone and West Jefferson.  Great shopping and places to eat.  You have thought of everythign to make a stay here perfect.  The Wildeerness cabin is adorable!  We hope to be frequent guests and will be glad to let our friends and family know about your special place.  We are all looking forward to returning again soon.  Our all girls trip was so much fun.  Thank you so very much!

Just perfect!  The weather was a welcome relief from FL heat.  Recommend New River State Park (both accesses) for short loop hikes & of course a lazy tube ride on the New.

What an awesome location!  A great place to relax and enjoy nature.  The cabin is surrounded by peace and natural beauty.  We enjoyed watching the baby deer feed each day after lunch, and relaxing and reading on the porch.  The cabin was complete with everything that anyone would need to have an enjoyable vacation.  We spent most of our time at the cabin!

Our vacation was very enjoyable. We have stayed at other cabins in the area & yours was the best by far. Our first time here - but definitely looking forward to coming back soon.  Everything was just perfect!  Enjoyed the hot tub very much.  There were so many things to do there, but most of all we enjoyed the peace & quiet. Spent a lot of time just plain relaxing (which is why we came here).  The cabin was very clean & the kitchen was well supplied with everything we needed to cook with. We are already looking forward to our next visit. Thank you for allowing us to share your cabin. We can't think of anything that we didn't love about the cabin & our stay there. Again - thank you so very much

We had a great time in the mountains.  Enjoyed time hiking, shopping, sight seeing, and riding the Creeper Trail.  Cabin was clean, comfortable, well orgainzed.  Local towns were friendly and nice to enjoy.  Several great restaurants in town of W. Jefferson.

Lovely setting - very quiet.  Enjoyed the hot tub; internet worked well.  No real negatives.  We enjoyed going to Grayson Highland Park and drove on the Blue Ridge Parkway to Linville Falls.  The location did give us an opportunity to see our son who came down from West Virginia for 2 days.  We tend to travel a lot of different places, and we may decide to come back in a few years.  We appreciate your professionalism throughout the rental experience.

Thanks for providing such a great retreat for us to celebrate our 8th anniversary.  We really appreciated the cleanliness, extra items for comfort, Pampered Chef products, etc.  We enjoyed the hot tub, tv and ample opportunities to rest/relax.  The peace and tranquility here are second to none!  Boondocks Tap Room and J&J Chophouse are both great places to eat!  Thanks again and we hope to be back soon with the kiddos!

Our first time here and loved it!  Our kids loved it too and called it home.  We celebrated our 6th Anniversary here as well.  A much needed get-a-way.  Hopefully our next stay will be longer and in the winter.

It's wonderful.  The pictures on the Internet does not do it justice.  My family is already talking about wanting to come back.  Your cabin is beautiful.  We enjoyed everything about it.  Liked how it is tucked away in the mtns, so peaceful.  Liked your attention to detail with decorating and your informative notes were very helpful.  Looking forward to coming back again for a longer stay.  Thanks again.

Great cabin.  We had a lovely time, in spite of daily rain.  It is obvious much thought was put into decorating the cabin, and it shows.  The secluded location of the cabin is what we liked most.  Also the cabin was clean, modern and fully stocked with all we needed.  Great place for sharing a holiday with our dog.  We appreciated the directions and the activity book you provided. Thanks.

Back for 2nd time.  Had a blast & relaxed a lot.  Love the cabin.  We love the privacy and quietness of the cabin.  Life is tooo fast these days and its a great place to relax.  Favorite parts are just chilling out and talking - something we forget to do at home.  My sister and her husband came up on Friday.  They loved it too!!  We had fun just talking & relaxing on the porch.  We will be back. Thanks.

The setting was very private and the cabin was very nice.  It has a very cozy atmosphere to it which we really liked.  

These past four days have been truly blissful.  The hot tub was an exciting way to finally relax. We used the fire pit to have a fun, family campfire, and make tasty smores.  We made our way to Boone and Blowing Rock, while checking out the amazing, beautiful Grandfather Mountain.  The cabin was the perfect place to read, paint, write, and spend some quality family time.  This was also a great way to get away from things like Facebook, work, and things that are not very important in life.  Thank you so much for letting us stay at your gorgeous cabin.  Written by Brooke (age 12).  P. S. We saw no bears, but few deer.

Everything was great here in this quaint little retreat.  Even down to the Pampered Chef kitchenware.  We had a really relaxing time.  Hot tub great even in the rain! :-)  Played mud horseshoes, took a long walk, no firepit or many outside activities due to rain :-(  All in All ★★★★

Our stay was so awesome!  We have been apart for almost a year on a deployment.  The silence here was so relaxing.  The location to our home is not too far away for a private weekend getaway.  The setting of the cabin and cleanliness was perfect.  We enjoyed spending quality time together from the "busyness" life can toss our way.  I am a big trout fisherman and my favorite trout spots are very close by too.  We caught a few nice size brown and brook trought as well.  J&J Chop House was great!  We hope to be back soon and hope to bring other friends to minister with.  We had a wonderful time.  Thanks many!

Absolutely loved this cabin!  We only took a couple of short drives - one to W. Jefferson, the other to Lansing.  Enjoyed the murals & cheese store in W. Jefferson.  Otherwise we wanted to spend most of our time enjoying our weekend @ the cabin.  Took advantage of all the amenities - grilled out, firepit, games, movies, & the hot tub was a must at least once a day!  Your website description/pictures are accurate, but the house & all that was provided was beyond our expectations.  We loved the hot tub, corn hole, dvds, games.  Nice to have things right there to entertain ourselves w/o having to leave or spend extra money so that it felt like a long, relaxing weekend.  We can tell much thought & care have been put into it.  Hope to make return trip in the near future.  Thanks!

Day 1: This is better than I ever would have wanted for our 15th Anniversary!  Coming from Alaska after 23 years and now living in Florida (4 years) this is perfect!  My husband & I are very excited to spend the next 5 days here.  And the gift pkg in the room is wonderful - Thank you so much!  We can't wait to return.
Day 5:  My husband has not been this relaxed in so long!  It snowed today, got to sit in hot tub & saw 2 deer - could not have asked for a better last day here!

What an amazing way to spend our 5th anniversary.  We shopped, visited Blowing Rock, Blue Ridge Parkway, Restaurants (Boondock's Brewery was great)!  But most of all we enjoyed the cabin.  We had a wonderful time and do plan to return.  Things we enjoyed most were the privacy, the hot tub, the firepit and all of the information provided with directions and places to go!  Thank you for sharing your cabin, it was a delight.  We cannot wait to come back.

We had a fantastic time here and really don't want to leave!  The snow was beautiful & we loved being able to enjoy the snow from the jacuzzi.  It was so relaxing and comfortable!  You provided an excellent vacation spot for us.  We also loved walking down to the river.  Thank you for sharing your cabin with us.  We can't wait to stay again when the weather is warmer!  What a relaxing and enjoyable vacation!

James & Abbey G. of NC

We had a wonderful, relaxing time here.  The cabin was very clean and we had everything we could need.  The notes were helpful, etc.  The hot tub was really nice and we loved that it was secluded, but not too far from town.  Y'all really know how to keep a cabin running.  I was very impressed whenever we had a question it seemed like there was already an answer in the binder or on a note.  Really great job, and super clean, we LOVED it!  We will be back when it is warmer to explore more.  Thank you!

We love the fishing in this area and the cabin is just perfect for us.  Small mouth bass on the New River in the summer and multiple locations to catch trout during the rest of the year.

This was our first visit but not our last.  Thank you so much for sharing your home with us, we truly did not want to leave.  The most peaceful vacation ever.  We liked that the cabin was secluded and we felt like we were in our own little world.  We turned the radio on and roasted marshmallows by the fire pit and played horseshoes.  The peace and quiet was amazing.  We are already planning a return trip.  Thanks again!

My husband and I celebrated our 8 yr anniversary here and have vowed to make this our Anniversary tradition from here on out!  This place offered us more comfort and relaxation than we could have imagined.  We are already making plans to bring our kids back to enjoy the cabin as much as we did.  Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay!

Just wanted to say you all have a great place.  Everything was as described and it was a really relaxing weekend.  The cabin was everything we were looking for.  A great getaway and tons of privacy.  We had so much fun just relaxing by the fireplace, and the hot tub was a warm welcome during the cool nights.  It was also nice that there were many activities available to us, including puzzles and board games.  We'll be back for sure!  Everything was great!

We had a great time here at the cabin!  What a great way to bring in the new year.  You have a fabulous cabin.  Our favorite part was the hot tub!  It was nice and toasty on the cold nights in January!  We loved it!  We had a nice relaxing time on our mini-vacation.  The only thing we will change for the next trip is to stay longer :-)  Great cabin with great cookware!  Love pampered chef stuff!  We will be back!  Thanks again!

We enjoyed our last minute escape for New Year's Eve.  The cabin is all we wanted it to be and more.  Thank you for allowing us to have our dream get-a-way.  We enjoyed the cabin and all its amenities.  We did not need anything more.  Hopefully we will be able to rent this wonderful place again.  Wishing all at the Wildeerness Cabin a safe & happy New Year!
