Thank you so much.  We really enjoyed our time here.  Our stay was fantastic.  You really have thought of every detail.  Hiking was great.  We were going to go snow tubing but our day got cancelled due to rain.  It rained most of our trip, not that you could control that.  It's just that time of year.  Was really hoping for snow :-(    Hot tub was fantastic. We used it every day.   It was quiet and it looks like your cleaning crew does a fantastic job. I would love to see the place in the fall.  I'm sure it's gorgeous.  Our Christmas was lovely.  We can't wait to do it again.  Thanks again.

We really enjoyed our stay and plan to go back in the Spring and next December again.  It was such a beautiful place and peaceful.   We liked the privacy, peace and quietness.  The cabin was so relaxing.  All was really great and I can't think of any changes.  We celebrated our 30th Anniversary and this was a wonderful getaway.

Thank you so much.  We had a great time, and the weather was just what we had hoped, with snow falling on both Wednesday and Thursday - it made for a great Thanksgiving week.   Please know that we had a great time, and loved the cabin.

Hello Peace & Quiet!  This cabin belongs to our neighbors & they were kind enough to let us come & stay for a wonderful weekend in November.  We had a great stay, we love the Wil-deer-ness!

My and my family want to thank you for letting us share your little piece of heaven with us.  It was what we all needed a little piece of the world with no distractions.  I loved that once we arrived we didn't have to leave until check out.  Such a great family bonding experience.  We felt relaxed, comfortable and can't remember the last time we laughed so much so hard together.  We have truely enjoyed the quiet and relaxation this cabin has provided.  Thank you again!  
P.S. We also LOVED the hot tub

This is a great quiet place to escape the world and relax.  Hot tub keeps you relaxed.  But you can still catch TV and stay connected via the WiFi.  West Jefferson is a fine town to explore and we love driving on the Parkway.  Boone is not too far away and we find some great shopping there.  In my view this is the perfect getaway cabin.

This was our first time here and everything was perfect!  We loved the hot tub and fire ring and just the coziness of the cabin.  Everything was so clean and organized and made for such a relaxing time.  We loved how clean the cabin was and the thoroughness of the signs to help us figure everything out.  The owners were extremely helpful in walking us through how to get the fireplace working.  I enjoyed how we did not have to bring our own linens and how well-stocked the cabin was.  The owners thought of everything and this made for an excellent and worry-free stay!  Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful cabin with us!  Can't wait to come back!  We LOVED our stay - thanks for sharing such a wonderful cabin with us!  
PS. The view ain't bad either

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful cabin with us.  We had such a wonderful time.  We had the best vacation.  We loved the cabin so much.  We were in want of nothing.  We needed some rest and relaxation so badly and we got it.  It was amazing all the nice touches and amenities provided.  We'll definitely be recommending your cabin to all our friends.  BTW, we had deer visiting several times each day, up to five at a time.  They seemed to know we wouldn't hurt them even if we were near the car.  Your cabin is the best place to stay if you want rest and relaxation.  Thank you again and we will definitely be back.

Jim and I can not stop talking about what a wonderful time we had at your cabin!!  We are already planning a return trip.  We had such a restful and wonderful time in your beautiful cabin!  You seem to have thought of everything to make a stay so perfect!  We loved the wonderful things to do at the cabin and the quiet and peace that we also had at the cabin.  Thank you again for the use of your beautiful place.

My husband and I had a wonderful vacation.  We were very satisfied with the cabin.  We saw a lot of wildlife.  The most interesting thing was the doe that was looking in the kitchen window each morning when we opened the blinds.  We had a very restful vacation at your lovely cabin.  We will definitely be back next fall!!  Thanks for sharing your little piece of Heaven on the Mountain!!!

Loved visiting West Jefferson and shopping in all the quaint stores and the farmers market.  We also love to eat at Shatley Springs.  Always enjoy our trip there...seems you think of everything.

We also came for our honeymoon!!  This was our third or fourth time here and we absolutely love it.  The fireplace in the bedroom is a great addition!  Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.  We will be back again for sure!

The cabin has been a delight to stay at and celebrate this special time.  We sincerely appreciate all of your attention to detail and believe that many families will enjoy staying at Wil-deer-ness Cabin as much as we have.  Again, thank you for this great experience.

What did we like most?  Everything.  The secluded location.  The cabin.  All the amenities.  Hard to separate anything out.  We cancelled going out to eat a couple of times just so we could stay at the cabin.  Hot tub was a definite plus to soothe the aching and aging body.  Slept well, which doesn't happen at home, and I think the hot tub was a contributing factor.  Might look into getting one for ourselves.  West Jefferson, Jefferson, and Lansing were great when we did venture out.  People are friendly.  Found our church denomination in West Jefferson and attended there only to run into and be recognized by the minister the next day on the streets of WJ.  Smoky Barbecue was a great carryout so we could stay in the cabin for the rest of the day.  New place in Jefferson, Coyote Kitchen was a chance to try Southwest Caribbean Soul Food.  Shatley Springs was a good breakfast site.  Pie on the Mountain for pizza was great.  Other than that we shopped at Food Lion & Ingles and ate in the cabin.  Overall, very peaceful and relaxing, and we needed it.  I already want to come back next year, maybe during the literary festival that is going on this week.  We did enjoy the art crawl on Friday night and even purchased a picture to bring home.  Fabulous library.  All the comforts of home and none of the hassles.  Would definitely spend another week here.  Loved the hot tub and the porch.  Enjoyed the peace and quiet.

We had a great time and your cabin was the perfect spot for our honeymoon.  We came here for our honeymoon and everything was absolutely perfect!  The cabin is beautiful and well stocked for all needs.  We hope to return next year and celebrate our first anniversary.  Thanks again!

We had a great time here at the cabin and within the local towns.  The setting was so nice and private.  The stars out here are amazing, you can see every one.  While we sat by the fire at night we took them all in.  We love the cabin, it's everything we thought it would be.  Thank you again for a beautiful cabin and setting.  PS: Will recommend this location.

Thank you for helping us celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary.  What a beautiful cabin you have.  A lot of thought went into it!  Your cabin was amazing!!  Very clean, we had everything we needed for our stay.  Loved our privacy.  While there we visited Boone, Blowing Rock, Grandfather Mountain and Mt Jefferson.  Just sitting on the front porch was so relaxing, we had a very relaxing time.  The drive was well worth it.  I have to agree with others, our only disappointment was having to leave.  The weather was just great.  We will be returning with our grandsons.

We cannot thank you enough for the wonderful and restful time we have experienced at your beautiful cabin!  Our only disappointment is having to leave!  This has been a well deserved, needed and joyful vacation.  Thank you for making this place so beautiful and comfortable!  The privacy made everything better.  We loved the hot tub, the organization of everything in the cabin and how all of this added together to provide a relaxing vacation.  The romance package was special too!  We think everything was fantastic!  Cannot wait til we get to return!  Kitchen and bathrooms well supplied.  Appreciate the work that goes into preparing and maintaining this beautiful place!  Wishing we had more time there!  We hope to return very soon.

Like that the cabin is not amongst other cabins.  Love the privacy - it's more of a Mountains setting.  Love the cooler weather in the summer time too.  We had our family up on Sunday for a cookout & they loved it!!  Loved the cabin & all that is to do.  Our 3rd trip & we will be back! Thanks.  Went to Hawsnest zip line - great!

Our drive up was breathtaking!  As we entered the driveway, we saw 2 deer!!  The magic continued thoughout our stay!  This was our first vacay without our children.  We visited Stone Mountain & Mt. Jefferson Parks - climbed mountains and had the most amazing views of all God's beautiful country!  Linville Caverns was amazing as well - so much to do & see here - we must return - next time with the kids! :-)  For our 4th Anniversary I couldn't imagine a more beautiful place to spend it!!  The cabin had everything we needed and more!!  We can't wait to return!

PS.  The jacuzzi is AMAZING!!!

We had a wonderful stay at the cabin over the July 4th weekend!  Me and my family enjoyed being in the woods and the cool mountain breezes in the morning!  The location was perfect, far enough away to be surrounded by peace and the relaxing sounds of nature while at the same time being close enough to enjoy West Jefferson, Jefferson Mt State Park, and we discovered a new place to go tubing on the New River at another state park that was about a 20 minute drive and the best part - tubing for free!

The cabin was clean and had a lot of nice little touches to it.  One of my favorite things was to drink my coffee on the front porch in the morning with my husband while the children were still asleep.  This cabin is surrounded by Rhododendrons (maybe Mt. Laurels, not sure), beautiful!  I was able to catch the last of the blooming season.  Another person commented on the comfortable beds and I concur.  The beds were very comfortable and that sure does make for a better get away, a good night sleep!

We are making plans to venture back to this cabin.  The family has voted and hope to enjoy this cabin in the woods in fall with the changing of the leaves & with all the color.  
Everyone in the family had a great time!

One of the children wrote:  This was a perfect cabin for me and my family.  The location was just fine.  I enjoyed being in the woods and hiking!!!

We really enjoyed staying at your cabin and had a truly peaceful stay.  Not too far from town but it definitely gave the feeling of a mountain cabin & we both felt at home here.  We will definitely be back again & would recommend this place to anyone.

Our second time here!  Wonderful!  Last time was July during our anniversary.  We had our two children with us, 5 yrs & 4 yrs.  They loved sleeping in the loft.  They felt very special :-)  Since then we have not heard the end of when we could come back here.  So here we are!  We are relaxed.  Everyone is care free and our two little ones are collecting "nature" for us.  Rocks, pine cones, etc.  Our goal is to come again in the winter :-)

I liked the secluded setting and the fact that it's out of town.  Kinda "off the grid".  I totally want to move out to that part of NC in a few years.  Overall, it was amazing!  The price. The location. The value.  The beauty of the serenity of sitting on the porch was worth every penny.  We weren't here for a long time but it sure was a good time!  Hope to be back soon.  Thank you.

Thank you so much for letting us stay.  This place has been the most relaxing, clean and beautiful place we have stayed by far.  We were able to feel just like at home without any worries.  We will most definitely be coming back in the near future.

Being a repeat customer, I thought I would be a little bored, but my sisters and I had a blast this weekend.  Awesome trip once again.  Dutch Creek Trails for horse back riding was the highlight of our weekend.  We will be back.

What didn't we like.  The cabin is better equipped than my house!  We didn't get to the cabin until 9pm on check in day.  It was dark as we pulled onto the dirt road and then there was the little white lights around the porch...that made my day!  The outside speaker with a hook up for my Pandora on my phone was great.  It rained on Saturday so we were stuck inside a little but the DVD collection was great too.  Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful cabin.  We enjoyed all the natural beauty around us.  Nice hot tub.  We hope to come back again soon.  Thanks again.

Thank you for another memory filled stay.  We had such a great time hiking the Cascades trail on the BRP and seeing waterfalls.  This stay we also spent a good amount of time geocaching with our children - such fun!  We loved the fire pit, the hot tub and the overall setting in the woods. As always, your cabin is a cozy retreat for the whole family.  We'll be back soon!

We have had an amazing weekend and with our lives so crazy, we finally relaxed!!  We slept late, enjoyed the town of West Jefferson and especially the cheese factory!!  We ate Village Inn pizza for lunch and Smokey Mountain BBQ!  We spent most of our time at the cabin, just reconnecting and slowing our world down.  We loved the cabin, the helpful notes and the hot tub.  We enjoyed the porch and the rocking chairs with our coffee each morning.  All the amenities of home.  Warm and very comfortable.  We enjoyed it so much!  It's such a nice vacation home.  We have had the best time here at the cabin.  Everything was amazing and we are very sad to leave.  We cannot wait to come back very soon!!  Highly recommend this as a fabulous vacation spot.

Once again we had a great time.  We love the seclusion the best.  We both have very stressful jobs and we are both volunteer firefighters and EMT's.  We have very little time for ourselves between jobs and children.  We love the view and being away from everyday life for a few days. This cabin is a great weekend getaway from day to day hustle & bustle.  We will be back soon!!

Great place for a get away, I loved being able to take my little dog.  The beds were very comfortable.  We had a wonderful weekend away.  It was a girl weekend & we got here & never left.  Precious cabin.  I think you thought of everything.  We look forward to coming back.

The things we liked most were the accommodations and the peacefulness of the woods.  We didn't have to pack everything.  We went to Jefferson Mountain and hiked.  That was nice and the hot tub.  We absolutely loved the cabin and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.  We appreciated all the notes & directions, it made it so easy.  We look forward to coming back in the summer months so we can take advantage of the close proximity of the river.  Thanks again for such a nice personal touch on everything!  I have already recommended your cabin to several people.
