My family (spouse, daughter (5), 1 set of grandparents) loved our stay at Emelca Inn at Fleetwood Falls. It was an easy drive to Wilkesboro for Merlefest and a very relaxing home to wind down in after busy days at the festival. The outside fire pit is excellent, there are plenty of activities to keep a child entertained, the beds are comfortable, and the location is wonderful. We loved driving down to the river for fishing. We will definitely be back.

We had a fabulous time! Emelca Inn was everything we wanted it to be. We will definitely stay here again. It was very homey and lots of fun for our kids. Plenty of games, internet for their phones, streaming for movies. We would go out and enjoy our day and then come back and just settle in for the evening with all the things I just mentioned. We would love to also come back in warmer weather to take advantage of outdoor activities in the mountains. It was very convenient to many locations. Thank you for a wonderful stay!!

This was a perfect location for our family of 4. (2 adults, 2 kids). Nice weekend getaway, the cabin was decorated so cute and we had everything we could need there. There was plenty of firewood to make a fire each night, we used the firepit during the day one time which was really nice. We also visited the lake area that is further into the neighborhood which was really serene and beautiful. A nice quiet neighborhood that isn't too far away from lots of things to do and yet far enough to feel remote. Driving to the cabin was really neat, seeing all of the open space, mountain side, and a river running through. We really loved the location and would come stay again in a heartbeat!!

The cabin's location, amenities, cleanliness, and roominess was all more than we expected. The cabin was fully stocked - including firewood. The location was fantastic to so many towns. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to visit the area.

First time seeing mountains and was incredible. The cabin is cozy and well equipped. The location is amazing, not far from parks( Free) or stores. Make sure to read the binder for activities and general information! We will be back soon!

This place was awesome! It was very clean and well stocked. I can't think of anything that it needs for you to have a great time. I will definitely be back!

We loved everything about it! Super clean, cozy beds, quality tp... Lots of accommodations. The trek up the mountain/through the neighborhood was a little rugged, but worth it!!

We had a great stay at the Emelca Inn! The kitchen/living room/dining room area isn't huge but fit our family of 6 just fine. The AC/heat didn't seem to be working in the downstairs bedroom but the weather was such that we didn't really need it. We really enjoyed the finished basement game room and the firepit. The outside deck was quite large and we spent a lot of time out there. It's a short walk to the lake (up hill on the way there and mostly down hill on the way back). The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful. It's about 20 minutes to West Jefferson (such a cute town!) and probably about 25 minutes to downtown Boone. The one negative is that we had to take our own trash to the dump (not just to a trash can located elsewhere in the neighborhood). We managed to make it work, but it did take some doing to fit trash in with all our luggage. I really feel that should be included in the cleaning fee. It will effect where we stay in the future.

Clean, comfortable, and convenient. We absolutely loved our time at Emelca Inn. The price is fair, the location is amazing, and the hosts covered all the bases in making our stay as good as it could be. We will definitely book this home again!

There are no words to describe this place. But I will try…It was immaculate. It was quiet. They have thought of everything. Between all the games (chess on the porch was a HUGE favorite) and the TV set up… Not in the living room so the parents could read while the kids watched tv and played upstairs or down stairs. The area is breath taking. We loved it so much we immediately started the process of buying our own house in the area. The only thing I would advise is that you pick up groceries on your way in. The store is kind of far. The moment you step out of your car in the driveway this weird peace comes upon you and you won’t want to go back out to the store. I would recommend this place to everyone. And I am PICKY;)

The place was very nice. We enjoyed our stay. The only downfall was neighbors are to close. Really wanted something more secluded.

This cabin was perfect for our family of 5. It was so well equipped. We loved the fire pit, and it was so peaceful sitting outside. We used the river access and enjoyed being pretty close to the lake too. It's not a bad trip from West Jefferson either.

This was an amazing girls’ weekend getaway for me and 2 friends. The cabin is adorable and very well appointed with abundant towels, comfy bedding, and a small but well stocked kitchen. We spent most of our time hanging out on the porch. I have stayed in other cabins in the area and this one was by far my favorite!

We are a family of three who wanted to get out of the house for the first since the pandemic began. I saw this cabin and decided to give it a try. It did not disappoint!! It was visibly clean and stocked with everything you would need, including firewood for fire pit and gas for the grill. The community lake located less than a mile from the cabin was a bonus (turn right our the drive way and the lake is located on your left, you can’t miss it). Execellent spot for fishing. We had such a wonderful time we are planning a future visit and possibly bringing another couple with us.

This cabin has it ALL!! We decided to come last minute and were able to book easily. Everything was immaculately clean. The only thing that was difficult but had nothing to do with the cabin itself was having to make the beds, due to covid you have to do this to ensure the sheets are fresh. The kids loved the access to all the games inside and out. We would love to stay again in the future.

We recently stayed in this cottage for a weekend getaway. The owners thought of every comfort and detail. It was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the kitchen had everything we needed. Great location between West Jefferson and Boone. We’ll be back!

We are always a bit hesitant to assume what we see in pictures is what the place will truly look like. This cabin was full of surprises. So cute, clean, very well stocked. The beds very super comfortable. Highly recommend this place. Owners thought of absolutely everything.

Thank you for the wonderful review. Delivery services for groceries, restaurants, etc., is non-existent in our area, at this time. Future guests you're only 20 minutes to West Jefferson or Boone for shopping and dining!

This is a wonderful place to go and get away from the stress of everyday life. The trade off is that delivery to this location isn't realistic. So make sure you stop at the grocery store before arriving.

This cute house was absolutely perfect for a quiet weekend with friends! Each of us had our own space and the cabin was stocked with everything we needed! We will be back!
