This was actually my 2nd time at this unit - definitely a fan for the price!
Very roomy, and I could tell they had upgraded the beds since last time I was there a couple of years ago with memory foam mattresses - a nice surprise!
I was also impressed with the assortment of disposables they leave for guests as well - along with the usual soap and shampoo, there was (if I remember correctly) hand lotion and The biggest one - some detergent packets for the washing machine!!
I know that doesn't sound like a big deal, but I can't think of another condo I've stayed at that had the detergent packets! To me this was awesome b/c after you'v been sweating, skiing all day, it's nice to be able to wash your ski pants, etc before the next day. Like I said, great touch.
Just a couple of negatives, mostly small, that leads to my "less than 5 star rating".
- Upstairs toilet really needs to be looked at...does not flush well at all, to the point that everyone just used the downstairs one. Thinking about it now, it may have even been that way last time we stayed 2 years ago, but don't hold me to that. ;-)
- When the heaters were running, my allergies started flaring up pretty bad. I suspect they probably just need a deep cleaning, or at least blown out with high-pressure air to get the dust out (just a suggestion).
This is understandable, as I'm sure these heater units are older.
- Lastly, and not a big deal but just wanted to mention - it would be nice to have a couple decent sized trashbags to use. We only found a couple smaller ones.
All in all we had a great time and would like to stay here again in the future.
I also want to tip my hat to vacasa! The website made booking very easy, and there weren't a bunch of nonsense fees added like when you use airbnb or vrbo (god, I hate those websites now - it's a shame as they used to be great).
If vacasa stays like it is, I will definitely be looking to book through this platform again!
Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay. The filters are changed bi-monthly, so these will be taken care of soon, and we have taken care of the toilet. We provide two size trash bags for the kitchen and bathroom and have verified they fit. We hope to see you again!

Everything it was great... The only recommendation is that I did not know where to take the trash there was no dumpster near in there.. so I left it inside in the trashcans... Sorry for doing that.. I wanted to take it to dumpster but couldn't find none... But everything else was great..

The location was great. It's in a quiet area, but close to Banner Elk, Boone & Blowing Rock, so there is lots to see and do. We were there the whole month of August. The weather was spectacular, usually not over 80 during the day and upper 50's at night. Being from Florida, it was a nice change. On the weekends, it was fun to sit on the front deck and watch the bicyclists ride the lift chairs up the mountain and then come down on their bikes. Overall, a very positive experience.
