My granddaughter stated she wanted to go to the mountains to celebrate her 4th birthday, because she could not have the traditional birthday party due to social distancing. We hunted online for the perfect place to "social distance" and Our Place to Paws fit the bill. Could not think of anything that was overlooked when they stocked this home. We had a memorable experience and we are ready to go back.

I can't say enough about this lovely house. It was super clean and had everything you could need in the kitchen! We spent a LOT of time in the basement playing darts, pool and games. The kids got a kick out of the old arcade games as did we. We also enjoyed the fireplace and having a "real" (non gas) fire! Unfortunately, we got snowed in for an extra night (darn - not!) :). The rental company was very easy to deal with and responsive. HIGHLY recommend this rental and we WILL be back!

Keep up the great job...
Driveway was a bit steep at first but got used to it. First time able to experience the fall colors.

Loved the cabin; kitchen was custom, great gathering place for our many homemade meals; game room fantastic and plenty of indoor/ outdoor space.

The house was amazing and very very clean. I did not worry about the Covid due to the outstanding job the cleaning crew did. The view from the wrap around back deck was amazing. It has a gate so dogs can hang outside without worry of escaping. The Master bedroom was spacious and sits alone upstairs. The bed was comfortable and the heated bathroom floor was a gem. The owners really did think of everything. The kitchen was fully stocked of appliances, pots, pans etc. There is a regular coffee pot and a Keurig. Again the owners did not miss a thing. The driveway is very steep but was no problem for us. There is a trail that leads down to a creek.where the fire pit is. It is peaceful but a good work out going back up so it may be hard for some. Dogs have some room to explore off this trail but there’s no real area you can play ball etc. We walked the dogs on the street for exercise and worked out great because no cars hardly ever and mostly uphill. It is very quiet with only the sound of the creek. Thank you for sharing your place it was an amazing way to spend a birthday.
Stay at Our Place to Paws-you won’t regret it!!!

This house is wonderful!! The owners have thought of everything! The kitchen had everything necessary to cook for a big group! And all items are good quality, no expense was spared in any part of this house. There is plenty of room to spread out or all be together. We enjoyed a fire in the fireplace every night and watched the snow fall! The bedding and pillows are fabulous! The master bath is absolutely dreamy! We will definitely be back! The driveway is not marked well with the house number and the driveway is a little tricky if there is ice with snow but that is the only thing that was a slight negative. We would still stay again anytime! The rental manager was very attentive and helpful!

You can tell that the owners of this home spared no expense in both building and furnishing this wonderful house. From the great bar area with a beer fridge to the wine cooler in the kitchen. The kitchen is furnished with everything you'll need for your stay. The bedding is great and plenty of televisions to keep all happy. The location is away from town to give you seclusion but close enough to arrive there in 10 minutes. Overall a great place to stay. The staff from Stay Blue Ridge were great.
Overall, this cabin is well upgraded with all the latest stainless steel appliances, tv's and much more. It's secluded so you can enjoy some great nature relaxation. It would have been nice to have more of a view of the mountains while relaxing on the spacious deck. The trees were blocking the view. If they were trimmed just a bit, the view would really pop out at ya. Any group of friends or a large family will definitely have enough space for a great relaxing and fun time in this cabin. I highly recommend it!

First off, the cabin was very spacious and gorgeous. The online photos don't provide all the gorgeousness. My friends and I really enjoyed the cabin. Only a couple of small things I would recommend. It would have been nice to have a hot tub. Although, the cabin provides more than enough fun activities in the downstairs space with the wet bar, pool table, ping pong, darts and lots of board/card games. We took advantage of those fun amenities. We didn't get around to playing corn hole. Another tip is to provide more detailed description of directions to get to the cabin. Once arrive on the small pavement, the GPS will tell you that you have arrived. A better direction description would be to provide additional directions after passing the Phase III sign. Lastly, I would recommend to have an exterminator to go out to spray for ants. We had issues with big black ants in the kitchen area, so we went out to get a can of Raid to spray around the doors amd windows.

We had such a great time. The house is incredible with all the comforts of home. We enjoyed spending time on the deck and listening to the creek and all the natural sounds. Looking forward to returning. Hi

Great experience from the beginning. Manager was very easy to deal with and check-in was easy. The house is spacious, updated, and fully stocked. Amazing kitchen! Master bathroom is fabulous. Our group loved the basement with bar and pool table. The driveway is a little steep, but manageable. Will stay again!

Over all the experience was great! A couple of quirks that we were not use to.....making sure that there was only 2 loads of dirty linen left for housekeeping (with 3 bedrooms (2 king and 1 queen)being used that alone took up a lot of loads and then you have to factor in towels for 6 people and the kitchen linen. Not use to having to do laundry. The other quirk was that we were only left 2 dishwasher soaps and we were there for 4 nights. But my family conquered these and enjoyed our Home Away from Home!
We spent our afternoons out biking the Virginia Creeper Trail, hiking at Grayson Highlands and tubing, so we cooked at the house every night. The kitchen was amazing! It was stocked with every utensil we needed and even had good knives. We enjoyed coffee on to covered part of the deck in the mornings and even sat out there in the evening when it was raining. Loved the sky lights out there!
The kids spent most of the evenings playing pool, ping pong and darts while we enjoyed the gas fire pit on the patio. We had a lot of rain so we only had a fire at the pit but the rive one night but it was great. We put up our tree hammocks and roasted hot dogs and made S’mores by the fire. The seating was perfect for all of us to enjoy the night.
The house was perfect! It was so hot in South Carolina the break it the weather was exactly what we needed. We played a few rounds of pool with the kids, but honestly it was about 70 degrees every night so we enjoyed being outside as much as possible on the great wrap around deck!
We plan on coming back next summer!

We had two families with 4 teenagers and the house was perfect. The adults took the two master bedrooms with king beds and private baths, while the kids both had rooms with queens. Since our boys were 14 and 17 one of them slept on the Murphy bed and said it was very comfortable. We pulled it down right before he went to sleep and put it back up when he woke up ~ super easy and out of the way. I was amazed to find a pull out couch in the den upstairs and futon in the downstairs bedroom. I realized we even had space to bring a few more friends for the kids (but so glad we didn’t - LOL).

Everything was wonderful about this house! We stayed here the weekend of my sons wedding. The only problem was that we were so busy we didn’t have enough time to really enjoy the house!
I cannot express enough how pleased we were with the amenities and furnishings in the home. Comfort and function in every area of the home have been attended to. The owners of this home obviously have chosen to let their guests feel Like they’re at “home” and not in a rental house.
Kudos to the heated stone floor in the master bathroom !! To get up on a cold morning and have your bare feet touch a warm floor is simply a slice of heaven.
Our children (ages 29 to 3) loved the games and the basement was their sanctuary. I hope we didn’t wear out the dart board and the pool table!!
We’ve already recommended the home to friends, and hopefully another visit is in our future as well.
Thank you for making such a phenomenal home available to our family.
Our memories will last a lifetime.

The home’s design and layout was perfect for a large family. (There were 11of us.) The Home is large enough to allow all of to gather in the playroom, living room, HUGE porch and dining area. Having said that, the home also allowed any of us the opportunity to be alone and relax if we chose to.
