The views from the deck, hot tub, (which we never used), the living room and kitchen, were absolutely amazing. both of our daughters were able to come for a night, and of course we were so grateful to be able to bring our Yellow Lab with...

My spouse and I enjoyed the peaceful and private location of our cabin. We enjoyed the views from the back deck and the time we shared chatting and reconnecting. The location was close enough to enjoy the surround Blue Ridge area and all the great activities available.

Thank you so much for your extremely helpful review! We think the location of the mountain/its proximity to the area attractions, while offering the seclusion and serenity of a private mountain, is a win-win combination!!! And, you really hit the nail on the head with the essence of an Above the Rest vacation - the reconnecting/relaxing/recharging with loved ones! Thank... More

We had a great experience with Above the Rest. From the check-in to the return of the security deposit after we returned home, they were very attentive to our needs and details. The cabin was beautiful. Great vacation!

Nine friends and one dog spent the weekend in My Mountain Hideaway. The service was excellent from first inquiring about cabin rental to check-in. Elaine made us feel very welcome and the hospitality continued as we entered the cabin and discovered cozy robes and slippers for us to enjoy and a Greenie for our furry companion. The gas grill worked... More

We stayed in the Wooden Indian cabin for 10 days. It was GORGEOUS. The cabin was super clean and very well stocked. The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful. Not only did they make the process of renting the cabin easy, they also helped us plan some of our trip by giving us advice about local events, waterfalls, etc. We... More

These cabins and the management team are definitely "Above the Rest"! I've stayed in several cabins in the Blue Ridge area under other management firms and this stay was certainly the best.

Thank you for your feedback; I only wish we could have assisted you in having the best stay possible while you were here!
