Recent Reviews About This Property
" Our family of five enjoyed a very comfortable Thanksgiving holiday weekend here. Our son attends Appalachian State University so it was easier for us to travel from the coast to the mountains to spend Thanksgiving together. This cabin is easy to find, very clean, very comfortable and well appointed. We cooked a full Thanksgiving dinner in the kitchen, enjoy the fireplace, slept well, toured around Boone and West Jefferson, played ping-pong, did laundry, and had a great time. I highly recommend this cabin. Oh did I forget the hot tub! We enjoyed that as well."
"We were totally satisfied with this rental...the house was extremely clean..
Location was perfect for us...We can highly recommend this rental house.."
"The Hapinest rental was very clean and ccomfortable.We loved the porch and rocking chairs."
"Super nice and professional rental company. Everything was exactly as said.
A great place to completely relax and get away!!!"
"Overall we were sastified with the home. It is not the cabin experience we were expecting, but it is a well equipped mountain home. The location is convenient to West Jefferson and Boone, it has everything needed in the kitchen for preparing meals. The beautiful wooded view and the relaxing hot tub were the best parts for us."
Response from StayBlueRidge:Thanks for staying with us and we are glad you enjoyed your visit and look forward to your returning to Ashe County
"We have a wonderfull time with our kids, agreat place to scape from the city"
"Nothing fancy here, but it had everything we needed. Loved relaxing in the hot tub after zip lining & exploring. Kitchen has a coffee maker & corkscrew, can't ask for more than that!! "
"We had a great time. Very relaxing and plenty of room. No complaints and we would visit again in the Fall. Thanks!
"We visited the home for a baseball trip at App State we finished our games more than hour early and called and the lady @ Ashe High Country Vacations & she was so nice and helpful she actually let us check in early which was a blessing because we were hot and tired!!! Entering the home it was very clean and it had plenty of things available for cooking and towels to use for the bath. The hot tub was very clean and it worked which is always a huge plus ... there was also a ping-pong table downstairs that the boys really enjoyed ... this home was well worth the money we spent it's only about 10 minutes away from Walmart and there's lots of other places nearby for shopping and gas. Thanks so much for such a pleasant experience!!! Would return ?????"
"The house was pretty much in a neighborhood and not at all secluded as we were hoping for. The gas fireplace did not work and though we could get the pilot to light and the fireplace to come on, it would go out after a minute or so (we have a gas fireplace in our own home and know how to operate so it wasn't a user issue). When we were in the hot tub on the deck, we noticed there was black smoke coming out of the chimney and black soot began falling on our heads and into the hot tub. Fortunately, my husband had noticed a boiler in the basement and realized it must have been vented to the chimney and that that was what was causing the smoke and soot. However, I feel this is something that should have been left inside the booklet so guests would not have been alarmed. Overall, the house was nice, comfortable, clean and a short drive to town, but was not the cozy, romantic weekend we were expecting and was very disappointed."
Response from StayBlueRidge:Thank you for the feedback. We really wish you would have called during your stay as it turns out the boiler furnace was on the fritz, thus the reason for the soot, and it went completely out the following weekend. If we had been made aware sooner we could have also saved the following weeks guests the issue of no heat late Saturday night. The furnace has now been repaired so this is no longer a problem. We do ask to please call us if you run into any issues so we can attempt to remedy them during your stay as well as prevent any future issues for other guests. Future guests: This property is located in a neighborhood and you do pass homes on the way in but once you are at the cabin the covered porch side as well as the hot tub location are private. The gas logs are also on schedule to be serviced but are currently working as well.
"The location of this house if perfect for my family gathering in the area. It is also close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Boone, and Blowing Rock for many recreational opportunities. The hot tub is sparkling clean. I've stayed here before and would stay again."
"We went for the weekend and the weather was perfect, this was our 2nd trip through Ashe county properties and just like the first the cabin was clean and neat with a nice note on the table on downfall with the cabin was the gas logs wouldn't light but with a nice hot tub and the trees changing colors who wants to be inside any way "
Response from StayBlueRidge:Thank you for your response! We are happy that you enjoyed your weekend. Thank you for letting us know about the gas logs and we are checking on that. Thank you for staying with us!
"We greatly enjoyed our stay at Happinest. The location was perfect. We were close enough to drive into Blowing Rock and shop and eat and close enough to Boone to tour Appalachian State University with out daughter and enjoy a zip line tour. The cabin was located on a gravel road that was secluded enough to be quiet and relaxing while also allowing us a path to walk our dogs and enjoy mountain scenery. The rental was clean and well equipped. "
Response from StayBlueRidge:Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed your mountain get away and was able to enjoy some mountain scenery.
"It was exactly the break my family needed. The house is surprisingly well stocked and very clean. The quality of the furniture and maintenence of the house is wonderful. The hot tub and views are amazing. Thank you! Everyone I spoke with was professional and courteous. We can't wait to plan our next trip!"
