Rasem F.Sep 2022
I recommend this property it was truly amazing. It was clean,quiet, it had lot's of stuff that were useful and fun. The hot tub was super nice.
Kevin K.Aug 2022
we enjoyed our stay - the property is quiet and fairly close to town. don't let the first impression of the entrance deck area , hopefully it will be freshened up with some new paint soon. The kitchen is nice - lighting throughout the house is could be improved, but if you are looking for a place to crash while spending most of your time out and about I would highly recommend this rental.

This cabin was very convenient to town. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. For what little time we spent at the cabin, it was perfect. The only thing I would add is the owner should put in a new shower head and leave more washcloths. Unlike other condos and cabins we’ve stayed at, this one provides paper towels, dish soap, dishwasher soap, sponges, salt & pepper, and coffee filters.
Sahily D.Jan 2022
it is beautiful, and well kept. We had a minor issue with getting Netflix to work for the kids and they promptly fixed it! The driveway IS STEEP!!! Thank God my husband is a good driver lol -- One thing I would suggest is to update the shower head for bathroom upstairs! ;)
John W.Jan 2022
We enjoyed a relaxing evening!
Will book again!
Tiffany A.Dec 2021
This was such a cute cabin and my kids loved the hot tub. Quiet and peaceful.
Beth H.Oct 2021
We spent 3 nights here and had a great time. We got a lot of rain, but the cabin was perfect for relaxing and just hanging out with the family. The kids really enjoyed the loft area and the hot tub. We would stay here again!
Jodi A.Sep 2021
Nice rental, exactly as pictured. The driveway is pretty steep, drive accordingly.
Caitlin L.Jul 2021
Perfect cabin!! Loved staying here. Literally the only complaint I have is the drive way (which is to be expected in the mountains) but we enjoyed everything!!
Ellie M.Jul 2021
This cabin was a great place for my friend group from college to get together. The king bed was huge and there was plenty of room for us. The hot tub breaker was turned off when we arrived, which lead us to believe it was broken, but it ended up being resolved and was a great addition to our stay. There were plenty of kitchen appliances and a working grill.
Some things to consider: there was only one functional mirror in the cabin which made it a little difficult to get ready as a group. The water also smelled/tasted distinctly like iron/metal which was a bit unpleasant. There also was not dishwasher detergent unfortunately.
Ultimately we had a great trip and would recommend if you are looking for a peaceful stay near some hiking, floating, etc.
Thank you, Ellie, for your feedback. We are happy to know you enjoyed your stay, plus the location of the home! We apologize for the inconvenience of the water, plus any detergent items missed by our housekeepers. We encourage our guests to contact our 24/7 guest service line for assistance with housekeeping, maintenance needs, and amenities as well! However, please know that this is not commonplace! We have passed your comments along to our local manager, who will work with the homeowner to make any updates, and we look forward to your next stay!

I loved the location, hot tub & having access to a whole house for comfort and privacy. The outside of the cabin is a bit dirty/unkept. Overall it was a decent stay but nothing that would make me come back to this particular cabin above the rest except the reasonable price & location. Nothing too bad, just not outstanding.
John S.Apr 2021
Enjoyed the quiet, and liked the loft for the kids.
Jessica W.Feb 2021
We loved staying here! It was very cozy and a great escape from our normal city life.

James C.Nov 2020
Beautiful home with attention to detail. From movies to enjoy with the DVD player and smart TVs to the hot tub. The views are beautiful and peaceful! Absolutely will be back!
Megan M.Nov 2020
Its comfortable (couches, King bed, large kitchen). We loved, loved, loved the hot tub. The gas fireplace was nice and we were very pleased to find a smart TV with live TV channels (as well as options to sign into our streaming services) in the living room! The new stainless appliances in the kitchen are very nice too - the fridge and freezer are very cold. All in all a very nice cabin to spend a few days in the mountains.
Sue B.Oct 2020
It was a wonderful place and so pleasant and clean. I have to commend the cleaning service that prepared the cabin for us as they did an immaculate job! The bed was comfortable and we loved the jacuzzi and the hot tub. Thanks for making this a wonderful visit.
Morris D.Oct 2020
The house was very cozy and the privacy was great. Our family had a wonderful time just lounging around. We themed our vacation" RELAX,REJUVENATE and RECONNECT" and we sure did achieve this in this home.
Priscilla H.Sep 2020
Great price. Quite area.
Gregory G.Sep 2020

Helen E.Aug 2020
Best Kept Secret is conveniently located not far from downtown Blue Ridge, Bear Claw Winery, and Daffodil Farm. Nice, private location but not too isolated. It is clean and well equipped. We enjoyed our stay.
Blake J.Aug 2020
We loved the seclusion!!! Everything was wonderful, and worked as expected
Anthony W.Aug 2020

Awesome little cabin! We only stayed one night but it sure was beautiful! The hot tub was nice too!
Erica F.Jun 2020
Home was sucluded enough to get away but close enough to go out for activities! All amenities were working and as advertised!
shaunna w.Feb 2020

Staci W.Feb 2020
We came for a girl’s weekend and it was perfect!!
Shelley M.Feb 2020
It was very close to a lot of towns and places. The home had everything we could of needed. It was very clean.
Nichole T.Jan 2020
Last minute getaway with the family. Was perfect for our family of 5 with the loft area for the kids. Loved the welcome gift and great instructions. Hot tub seemed dirty but may have been clay in water, just made sure to shower after. Would have been nice for a few extra towels for 5 showers and hot tub. Plenty of extra appliances, trash bags, TP and paper towels. Bathtub needs a new plug. Didnt get a chance to use fire area. Perfect place to relax and escape but still close enough to town and Aska area for day trip.
Nurys M.Dec 2019
Everything was clean and well organized. I love the view! It is the perfect is spot for vacation and relax!
Steven F.Dec 2019
The trip was a much needed getaway!

Daniel M.Nov 2019
We loved the cabin! It was very clean and beautiful we will be back!
Kristy D.Oct 2019
This was a very clean cabin. The king size bed was very comfortable. TV in bedroom and living room were great. Hot tub water was a little cool - never could get it to the temp we set it at. But we still enjoyed it. Jacuzzi tub in the bathroom was fabulous.
Sarah L.Oct 2019
We lived our stay here! Everything was super clean. We had everything we needed! The hot tub is amazing! We will definitely be back!

Beautiful scenery, great looking cabins and very nice people...
Mark S.Jun 2019
I'll be back.
Lindsay R.Jun 2019
Very nice cabin with lots of amenities and new appliances. The auto door-lock/keypad was very convenient. The only downside was the driveway. I had a hard time getting up to the top in my SUV since it was so steep. I felt like I needed 4-wheel drive!
Sergio R.May 2019
This cabin was beautiful
Vicki A.Jan 2019
There was plenty of room for 5 people & quite comfortable. Good kitchen & appliances!

Brandon H.Dec 2018
Stayed here for a short romantic getaway. The cabin was very roomy. Room enough for 8 if a couple of folks don't mind couching it. Location feels very secluded but only 10 minutes away from the city of Blue Ridge and chain grocery stores and restaurants. A few vineyards were close by as well. The driveway is kind of steep and could be difficult in a car with low ground clearance.
Hannah V.Dec 2018
We really enjoyed our stay here! When we got there the hot tub was dirty however we called Vacasa and they sent housekeeping to fix it immediately which was very nice. Other than that we didn’t have any problems. Perfect for our girls trip. Would stay here again :)
Gregory C.Nov 2018
Management was really good. Location was really good. We were unfortunately sick with stomach bug so dodnt get to enjoy much. This location is tucked away, not mountain top views. Place was a little dated, but really nice space and very open.
Cody H.Nov 2018
Everything that you need is provided for you that would be in a typical house and even more. The only downside to the stay was the beds weren't all that comfortable but still was fine. Hot tub was nice, plenty of propane provided for the grill and fireplace that worked perfectly. I would stay here again
We have replaced the sofa bed mattress to provide more comfort for our guests. Thank you for staying with us!
RANDY C.Nov 2018
The cabin was very clean and in order as described. We enjoyed our 2 day stay and would recommend the cabin to others.
Larry B.Nov 2018
The cabin and location was nice. The bed was not comfortable. The floors were not as clean as I like. If we had a complaint about something they came immediately and fixed it. All in all a pretty good trip.
Thank you for your review! We would just like to let our guests know the sofa bed mattress has been replaced and should provide much more comfort.
Elizabeth S.Oct 2018
This place was amazing!! The hot tub was the perfect addition to the cabin. Parking was exceptional and the streets to get there were easy to travel even without 4x4. Power went out on the first night there and it did not get restored until the next day around noon, but other than that we had an amazing stay ! Will definitely be back
Sally P.Oct 2018
Davy H.Oct 2018
Gorgeous place clean and homey. Def will stay again!
Betsy H.Oct 2018
The house was very clean and had everything you would need!
Wanda D.Oct 2018
This house is perfect. You've thought of everything. We loved it, So beautiful, spotless and modern in a rustic surrounding. It situated where you can enjoy the mountains and go into town without too much hassle. We had a great time and will book again.
Jessica E.Sep 2018
My husband and I honeymooned in this cabin, and we had such a relaxing time! It's not too far into the mountain (so no winding, one lane roads that you can sometimes come across when you get higher up), and only about eight minutes from quaint downtown Blue Ridge. The master bed was uncomfortable and could use to be replaced, and the climb up the steep driveway can be a little nerve wrecking if you're not prepared, but other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Best Kept Secret!
Nicole P.Sep 2018
It was really a home away from our home.
Matthew C.Jul 2018
The property is beautiful, VERY private, and convenient to amazing hiking, Blue Ridge, Ellijay, and McCaysville. Thie cabin was perfect for a quiet getaway for two, but the Keurig, oven and refrigeratior did not work upon arrival. It took 3 days to get everything functional (setteling for pretty gross appliances, and instructions to unplug the stove and try again if it stopped working). The mattresses could use an upgrade as well (just the mail order ones from Amazon would be great!). I would suggest not booking this property until the local Vacasa office has verified that the appliances have been replaced by new ones. They told us this was scheduled to occur during 3rd week in July.
We apologize for the fridge going out and the temporary replacement we had to use. The fridge and oven are both taken care of, and we are working on repairing the Keurig. Thanks!
Billy I.Jul 2018
Clean, good location, had a problem with refridgerator and they fixed it right away.
Will stay their in future.
Christy W.Jul 2018
You provided everything you advertised and you were amazingly responsive and helpful with our hot tub issue. The cabin was completely clean and fully functioning. Couldn’t ask for a better experience! Thank you!
Nancy W.Jun 2018
This was a really nice place to stay. Very peaceful and relaxing. The hot tub and screened porch were excellent for a laid back vacation. The owners had a Netflix account available. I have recommended to my friends.
Tommy S.Jun 2018
It was beautiful and private. If you're looking for some private and alone time. This is the place.
Jennifer T.May 2018
We loved the house with few exceptions. I wish there had been luggage stands or a bench in master as well as better lighting and a ceiling fan. We loved the privacy! We hadn't been out of town without the kids in a while and it was good to be on our schedule. The kitchen was well stocked and good to cook in since we stayed in most of the weekend. The house was convenient to where we were going when we did leave. We will definitely be back again.
There is currently a ceiling fan in the master and two lamps as well. Thank you!
Alex F.Apr 2018
Out experience was amazing. We were able to explore hike and enjoy the privacy we wanted.
Kimberly F.Feb 2018
Our weekend getaway was great! The cabin was stocked with all the basics we needed. Clean and spacious. Only about a 10 minute drive to all the restaurants in Blue Ridge.
