    Tammy C from Marble, NC recommends this vacation rental

    The cabin was very lovely and peaceful right beside the creek. The kids enjoyed fishing and tubing. We really enjoyed our stay. There were a few things that could have made our stay better. There was a family of raccoons living in the ceiling and we heard them all night long. I called in a reported that to management. They offered to move us- but the whole reason we booked the cabin was to be on the river, so we stuck it out. There was no water running into the master tub. We called and reported that also and was told they couldn’t get a plumber out on weekends. The hot water is very limited. I tried to take a bath in the other bathroom, but only got half a tub of luke warm water- and no only else had used hot water before I tried to take a bath. There is no dishwasher, so bring paper products if you don’t want to spend your time washing dishes. Also know that you have to wash all the linens before you leave. (You can leave one load of laundry for an apartment size washer/dryer combo) anything more- you are charged for.

      Thank you for leaving a review of Down By The River. We are working to correct the issues that you mentioned above. We hope you will stay with us again. UPDATE JUNE 2018: The family of raccoons have been professionally removed and their access point has been sealed so they cannot return. The hot water issue has been corrected as well. If you purchase the optional linen cleaning fee then you do not have to worry about doing any laundry before you leave.

    We had a great time at Down by the River. The house was comfortable and had plenty of space for me, my husband and our two seven year olds. We built a fire each night, made smores, put up hammocks in the trees for our girls, and relaxed by the river.

    • Manager Responded on 5/2/2018

      We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your recent stay at Down By The River. This home is on the banks of the New River and offers a wonderful outdoor space to relax. We look forward to having you stay with us again,

    Joanne W from Wake Forest, NC recommends this vacation rental

    Loved, loved, loved this quaint, charming cottage right on the side of the river. Everywhere you looked just oozed comfort, uniqueness, and attention to detail. The place was as described - the original house is dark, you have to pass through one bedroom area upstairs to get to the other, and you can hear the cute donkey across the river braying every so often...all part of the appeal in my opinion.

    The river water is clean and accessible. We had fun wading around in the chilly water. Boone, the small odd town of Todd, and West Jefferson are nearby.

    Don't be creeped out by the abandoned trailer at the beginning of the road, when you get to this place you can just relax.

    • Manager Responded on 8/29/2017

      Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of Down By The River. Down By The River is set in a tranquil setting along the banks of the New River and the farm animals seem to add to the ambiance. We look forward to having you stay with us again.

    not a good road going to it....very busy and not enough room to get by another car
    livingroom furniture NEEDS updating

    • Manager Responded on 8/22/2017

      Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your recent stay at Down By The River. The cabin is located on a country road that is gravel that follows the New River. We are working with the owner to see about updating furniture and adding new lighting. You only paid the basic fees and taxes through our company. There was no add ons. The cabin is located on the New River and offers great river frontage and easy river access. We hope in the future if you have concerns about the pricing you contact us before booking. We look forward to having you stay with us again in the future at another cabin.

    Hannah H from Bishopville, SC recommends this vacation rental

    We loved the house and location. Very enjoyable and would love to rent again. Only thing is we will make sure to read EVERY detail of the contract next time. Thought I was about to lose $600 because there was no way someone would have rented it in time if we didn't make it. We also had some trouble getting the TV to work.

    • Manager Responded on 8/15/2017

      Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your stay at Down By The River. We do offer trip interruption insurance in case you need to cancel. If you cancel and the reason is one that trip insurance covers then you will be refunded the cost of your stay minus the trip insurance. We are sorry for any confusion you may have had about the contract. Anytime you have any questions regarding our contract please reach out to us before signing or even after. We are happy to answer any questions.

    a guest from Germanton, NC does not recommend this vacation rental.

    Beautiful location, quaint cabin. Steps are steep to the upstairs, and all bathrooms are located downstairs. For the price, I felt the furniture would have been better maintained, but overall a good place to relax from it all. Saw a crane, raccoon, chipmunk, muskrat, and greeted by a rooster at the end of the road! The donkey across the river let us know he was there better than chimes to a grandfather clock. The sunroom was our favorite spot.

    • Manager Responded on 8/8/2017

      Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of Down By The River. We are working with the owner to possibly upgrade the furniture and change some items based on the notes you emailed us which we greatly appreciate. The sun room is a great place to relax. We hope you will stay with us again in another cabin that we can assist you in choosing to make sure it is up to your standards,

    CAROLINA MOUNTAIN VACATION RENTALS, They are the best. They worked with us in looking for just the right spot. We told them what we were looking for and they gave us 3 possibilities. They gave us the pros and the CONs of each and let us decide. This place met our needs and our wants. If you are looking a river front get away that is in the shade that is comfortable in doors and out. You will love this place. It is 1/2 a mile of the main road with a well maintained one lane road to the house. We will stay here again someday.

    Perfect setting, and easy access to the river for floating. Good for all ages! Not suitable for wheelchairs, but seniors could negotiate with a walker/cane for a family gathering. Loft bedrooms have steep steps though for wee little ones, but there's a pull out sofa so no need to do the steps!

    We have booked this property for 6 adults and 2 bedrooms were not convenient at all.
    This place has only one proper bedroom. The other two rooms claimed as bedrooms cannot be used as bedrooms as they are located upstairs; one is like a loft space with 2 full beds, so no privacy and the other bed is like an attic space, one has to pass through the 2nd bedroom to go to the 3rd bedroom.
    Other than this everything else like maintenance, property location, cleanliness was excellent.

    Becky B from Huntersville, NC recommends this vacation rental

    Absolutely gorgeous log cabin inside and out!! Quaint and cozy looking on the outside but spacious and with plenty of updates inside. Careful attention was taken with the updates to compliment the original cabin with hand hewn log stairs, oringinal front door and windows, river rock fireplace, and the open beams, rafters, and walls of the old cabin. The addition of the kitchen, two and a half baths, and the huge master bedroom with an electric stone fireplace of its own had us admiring the attention to detail that was maintained in every inch of the new additions. The master bedroom has its own rocking chair porch and French doors to the large Carolina room. The Carolina room, just off of the kitchen, made it a little difficult to make it out to the deck to enjoy the morning coffee! This problem was easily solved with a second cup!! Don't be surprised when you go to change out of your jammies to find its afternoon!! Marsh mellows and songs were enjoyed at the fire pit!! There are some pop up campers to the unused side of the property which we felt were a little too close until we met the very friendly neighbors! They even shared their firewood with us!! "Down By The River" is my new first pick of all the cabins I have stayed in through Carolina Mountain Properties in the past years!! Thank you to all the sweet and kind people at Carolina Mountain Properties! A special thank you to Jennifer!! This special lady made my friends think I'm a preferred customer! Lol. Thanks again and love to all at CMP!! Can't wait until my next visit!! ????????

    Jeanne M from Whiteville, NC recommends this vacation rental

    We had a nice time! We used every inch of the home - which is how we discovered spider webs and spiders upstairs ... And the pull out couch was used the last night as I could no longer sleep upstairs - and it had lots of trash in and under the mattress. Overall - we were impressed with the cleanliness - just those few areas. We loved the river - the fire pit - the donkey - the location (except no phone service - but then again - that was a plus as well!). We ate pizza at Pie in the mountain - and that was delicious ... And we had BBQ (can't remember the name) that was very good. (We cooked for breakfast and dinner - and was impressed with how well the kitchen was stocked) We enjoyed quint downtown West Jefferson - farmers market, shops,etc and hiking in the mountains! Wonderful weekend!

    Anna A from Winston Salem, NC recommends this vacation rental

    The cabin is beautiful and clean! The river is perfect and easily accessible by the steps. Tubing from the bridge to the cabin takes about an hour - perfect! We did this numerous times. Great fun for the kids and adults! We had a great time, although it is not as secluded as we expected. There is a private camping area within a 100 ft of property with tents and pop ups and college kids party across the river in an open field on the weekends. But this was not a problem for us, they were just having fun and never bothered anyone. Fire pit is great, but beware of the posts sticking up next to it, they can't be seen at night. Another light on the porch would be great. There was an area light on the tree, but it did not work. The sleeping arrangements are somewhat misleading. We had 2 families, 4 adults & 3 children. The king suite is awesome, however, the upstairs is not actually 2 separate bedrooms. It is a loft with very steep stairs. There is only a sliding closet type door separating the beds and no bathroom upstairs. All bathrooms are downstairs. The description does not give details about the upstairs, so I felt that is was important to point out. There is also a pullout sofa. Love the sunroom for meals with a view! The property management is wonderful and overall we had a wonderful time. I would definitely stay here again. 20 minutes from town.

    Enjoyed our stay at Down By The River. Well decorated and very clean cabin. It was a perfect place for us and another couple. We really liked being able to paddle the New River with the different places to put in not far from the cabin. It was wonderful to have the outside sitting areas.

    The rental was everything I hoped for. We were just steps away from the river and spent much of our time relaxing on the deck watching the river flow by and a few families float by on tubes and kayaks. The cabin was very clean and well maintained. Our granddaughters loved the upstairs bedroom, but I might be concerned for small children because of the steepness of the steps going up to the loft area. The fire pit was great as we had s'mores down by the river. We enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again!

    Great spot on the river with a local drop off for canoes, tubes or kayaks just a mile up the road. Easy float for all ages.
    The cabin was comfortable and had enough kitchen items for preparing food. Cozy porch was fun for watching the river and their was lots of outside deck areas for when it wasn't raining. Empty lot next door filled up with a tent city for celebrating the 4th. The neighbors were nice and not too noisy. Best of all, they brought fireworks for a nice show that we also enjoyed watching!
