Cabin was just like the photos on the booking site! Nice and clean just a few leaves nothing major it’s in the woods so got to expect that! Didn’t get in the hot tub but water was nice and clean and got the only thing I didn’t like was the parking but we figured a way to get in and out without burning our tires from the rocks but for the most part it was beautiful and will definitely book again!!

Por favor si ven una perrita negra en el vidrio de la casa esperando a entrar déjenla pasar se llama Deysi y es de lo más tierna ella vive unas casas más arriba se queda allí y después la dejas salir y ella se va a su casa
Fue lo que más me gustó de la cabaña 🤣
Excelente ambiente de descanso perfecto el lugar

The home was great there was something need up dating like the chairs at the table they are worn out. The bed on the lower level. The top to the hot tub need cleaning with bleach. Something need to be done about the driveway. The people across the street let us park in their driveway. The cabin was nice we enjoyed our stay

Pros: We loved that it had 3 levels, everyone that their own bathrooms and floors to go back to, there were a lot of games to choose from if you don't bring your own. The porches were great and had plenty of seating. The house was very clean.
Cons: The chairs for the table need to be replaced. Every one had a sunken middle so all you sat on was the hard outer wood rim. The loft, basement & pull out mattresses need to be replaced. They all sagged and were very uncomfortable. The pull out mattress had every bar poking through it. We have 4 people who have bad backs so mattresses are very important to us. By the end of the last day, my husbands back was going out.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Wendy! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we'll pass your comments regarding bed and furniture comfort onto our management team for consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

This was an outstanding home! The pictures and descriptions from Vacasa were spot on....
Our family had a great time and everyone had their own space. We were close enough to things to go sightseeing if we wanted, but secluded enough to fee like we were truly at/on a "Lazy Creek Retreat"!
Ashley W. Jun 2021
The cabin was cute. It was as described, however the driveway is horrible. We did read that it was steep and you should have a vehicle that was good with that, but even with an SUV, we got stuck multiple times. I would not rent this again based off of that. The basement level also had a musty smell.
Manager response:
Hi Ashley, we're delighted to hear that you enjoyed this charming home! We apologize for the difficulties experienced with the driveway. Please note the listing description, virtual tour, and photos are up-to-date and accurately describe the home as we never wish for our guests to be surprised upon arrival and local staff is in the area available to assist guests if there is anything that you may need. We hope to host you for a more enjoyable stay in the future!
Ruby B. Jun 2021
Loved this home. Plenty of space with 3 separate living rooms. Kitchen had all the supplies we needed. View from the porches was beautiful and relaxing with the sounds of the stream. Teens enjoyed the hot tub. The driveway was steep but our van had no trouble. We would definitely stay again.
Dr V. May 2021
Each floor with its own bed room and bath. Great for private getaways with more than one couple. Fire pit pre loaded with wood. And hot tube pre heated to 104 degrees. Everyone was happy

Ashley P. Mar 2021
We had 8 people staying in the home - 4 adults and 4 children. There was plenty of room for all of us to have our own space to work and do schoolwork during the day and the wifi worked well. The kids loved the hot tub and the creek. We had no problems with the driveway, which had been a concern after reading previous reviews. We would definitely stay in this home again and recommend it as a great place to get away.
Jamie J. Jan 2021
my family and i had a great time at this cabin. the 3 levels of the house are unique and offer privacy, and the creek in the back of the property was very relaxing. it snowed on Christmas Eve and that made it even better. the porches are great, and the fireplaces really made the cabin feel relaxing.
Santiago B. Jan 2021
We had a wonderful time in here over the holidays with our dog. There is plenty of space for a large family and pets. We were surprised with the cleanliness of the house and with how well packed it was. My only complaints are how much the kitchen is lacking in stuff; it’s definitely missing essentials like a rice cooker, cooking oil, and more silverware, in comparison to my other Vacasa houses I’ve visited. Speaking on the other reviews, the retaining wall has been repaired and looks great. The driveway is a bit difficult angle to get used to, but we were driving in a Chevy Tahoe and were able to make it fine. The campfire is a bit far and steep away from the house so we didn’t use it but the creek is nice and gives a relaxing sound at night. More advice I would give to the house owners is place lights on the outside of the house to be able to look down onto the woods at night because it is DARK. Either way, the ping pong and games were fun and the fireplace was great, however, we did accidentally press wrong button on the fireplace messing it up, and we called maintenance and they came the next day to fix it and it was working fine after. I outlined all the bad stuff in this review, but I want to say this was an amazing place and we really loved it. We would definitely come again. The TVs in every room and nice showers and all the available games made for a wonderful cozy week with family in the cold snow.
Manager response:

We do our family thanksgiving in blue ridge every year. This was the best cabin we have had in the 5 years we have been going up
Manuel C. Nov 2020
Overall this cabin has a nice feel to it, that is u til you go downstairs and sleep on the “king” sized bed. This bed is made up of two different twin sized mattresses that are held together by sheets. It is terribly uncomfortable! Also the outside of the cabin is poorly lite up. And the steep gravel driveway makes it hard for anyone that doesn’t drive a 4wheel drive truck! We got stuck multiple times in a pickup truck. I would stay here as long as those issues are resolved! The view is perfect and peaceful!
Manager response:
Hi, Manuel! We are so glad you had a peaceful stay at Lazy Creek Retreat. The king size bed is made up of 2 twins but held together at the bars. Maintenance has been out to replace the bulbs. Thank you!

We stayed here for our anniversary and we love everything about the cabin. It’s very well maintain. The only thing we don’t like was the driveway. It’s really hard and tricky to drive up. Other than that, the cabin is awesome :) we would coming back.
Roberto M. Sep 2020
The cabin was exactly as described, very spacious, clean and quiet. However, it was not adequately stocked for eight people. There were only four coffee cups and a mix of a few wine and champagne glasses. But nonetheless we made due. The biggest complaint that we had was the dangerous poorly maintained driveway. When we tried to enter we were met by a crew there to inspect the buckling retaining wall in the driveway. Which was taped off with caution tape. After getting in the driveway we got stuck at the bottom of the driveway, even though we were in a truck. After many attempts to get to the top we were able to get to the top of the drive and park in the woods up top. We looked at other properties around and noticed that they had pavement in the driveway. In addition to the driveway were awakened to gunshots by the neighbor, who repeatedly shot for about 20-30 minutes. For those two reasons I would not revisit this cabin.
Manager response:
Hi, Roberto! We are sorry to read you had any issues during your stay. We have hired a company to come and do a lot of work on the driveway to make sure our guests are safe. Thank you!
Jessica P. Jul 2020
We loved staying at lazy creek retreat! Other than it being a little dusty and having a ton of flies when we walked in it was great! The hot tub wasn't working but customer service had someone come by the next day to fix it! Definitely recommend to anyone staying in blue ridge!
Adam M. Jun 2020
Everyone loved the week there. Bedrooms open to each deck via French doors. Scenery is great. Inside the cabin was very clean, neatly furnished, and cozy. The decks, not so much. They appeared completely overlooked by the cleaning crew. We swept and hosed them off to make them usable. The hottub lid was discolored by something like mildew, and there were a few pieces of trash laying around the grass. The retaining wall holding back the earth in the parking area looks like it's about to give and collapse. So much so that we parked away from it. The driveway was steep, hidden, and you're told not to stop. Luckily no one was coming when we bolted out.

Anyway, all the faults were external. The cabin was great inside. I would only change the air handling. It was really cool and cozy on the lower deck while a bit warm on the upper. Loved the games on the lower level!! Great place would probably rent again and recommend.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us us, Adam! We are glad you enjoyed your visit. We appreciate and encourage guests to let us know of any questions or concerns that may arise in the home so that we make work to address and resolve them as soon as possible. If there is ever anything we can do to assist in making your next stay with us more pleasurable, do not hesitate to reach out. We would love to host you again!

The photos online were great the actual place not so much. Rotten decking, rotten steps, freezer that was completely frozen over ( and no one answers the phone after calling twice). Oh and have your climbing gear ready if you want to use the fire pit. The driveway needs to be fixed and the retaining wall looks like it’s about to collapse. Kitchen faucet is about to fall off and there was no toilet paper in 2 of the bathrooms. I have rented many different cabins in N.GA over the past 15 years and this one was by far the worst. I would not recommend this cabin until it gets cleaned and maintained.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, John. We are sorry to hear the condition of the condo did not meet your expectations. Our local manager confirms that all these areas of concern have been addressed appropriately in an effort to provide a more pleasant stay for our guests. We appreciate your feedback and hope to provide you with a more comfortable experience next visit!
Kiah J. Jun 2020
I just wish they would have cleaned and swept the patio before our arrival

We encourage any in-home guests with concerns to contact our 24hr Guest Services line, so our local staff has the opportunity to promptly address and issues.
