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. From reservations all the way through checkout the process was seamless and customer service was excellent. Jeanette was always helpful and quick to reply to my email questions.... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us; we truly appreciate your feedback. Whispering Winds, being one of the true log cabins on our mountain, has a great deal of charm. I remember, previous to buying this company, being here for Thanksgiving on my own in 1998 and staying at that little house on the last sharp... More

Thank you for your feedback; I only wish we could have assisted you in having the best stay possible while you were here! It sounds like the hot tub was maybe too warm for you (especially if you had small children) and that can easily be fixed by adding cold water from the hose right next to it, and we... More

Been there many times and I am never disappointed. They always go above and beyond. Probably why their name is Above the Rest. They are always friendly and helpful and do whatever it takes to make your stay the best possible.

Our visit in October 2014 was our third Above the Rest stay! We stayed with the parents while they were on vacation. Our first visit was our honeymoon in April 2013. We stayed at the Dream Maker cabin, and loved EVERYTHING. Especially the private hot tub, game room and East-facing window. The King Bed in the loft faces the window... More

Thank you for your review! We are so glad you've had the opportunity to experience so many different cabins on our mountain! Yes, unfortunately in the spring/summer the carpenter bees are the bane of our existence; they're harmless and not aggressive (unless you're a piece of pine!). I always thought they looked like little alien spaceships and were they not... More

This was our first cabin stay ever, and Above the Rest far exceeded our expectations.The cabin we stayed in, American Idyl, was so lovely. It was comfortable and warmly decorated and quipped with everything you'd need. The outdoor (private) hot tub was a great perk and very well maintained. Everything was neat, clean and in it's place. And when we... More

Visited from 4/15 - 4/21/15 at Deer Crossing. This is my 5th or 6th stay with Above the Rets. As usual, the cabin was clean, comfortable and accommodating. The staff was excellent as always and I couldn't have been happier. Deer Crossing is nestled back in the woods a bit for a very welcome break of solitude. I did have... More
