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

Dan, we always love it when you are on the mountain! Even though you violate the "no working rule", it's great to be able to visit with you and see one of our favorite "repeat offenders"!

My wife and I booked the Sunshine In The Pines cabin home online through Above the Rest Luxury Cabins and can't say enough about how positive our experience was. From the ease of booking, the follow up phone call from the owners, questions asked & answered beforehand, the quick, easy & friendly check-in, to the cabin home waiting for us... More

We truly enjoyed having you on the mountain, and Sunshine in the Pines is, as you know, an AMAZING home. We look forward to seeing you again soon!! Thank you! More

Our family loved every minute of our stay at Bass Pond. It was such a memorable experience as my husband and I got to watch our children catch fish for the first time in the stocked pond. Can't wait to visit again!

The view from the cabin was amazing. Though there are neighboring cabins, it felt very private, was quiet and peaceful. The cabin itself is very charming, spacious, and was well suited for our family and guests. We were delightfully surprised to find all manner of extras goodies, showing the care and thought they put into this place. There were plenty... More

The service and staff is truly above the rest - I feel like we are renting from family as the individualized little extras really make you feel like you are a guest in a loved ones home.
