So peaceful and romantic. We sat on the porch and watched the sunsets. Breakfast was amazing. The owners were so friendly and helpful. We stayed in cabin 4 "The Roost", and it was so nice and cozy. Perfect for a get away for two. The hot tub was nice, and scenery amazing.

Had our first visit to the cabins back in December 2015. Such a wonderful getaway, and very peaceful. The hospitality is beyond amazing. Being out in the mountains, looking at the beautiful views from the hot tub on the porch!! You can't get any better than that. Recommend this place to everyone who just needs to go relax and enjoy...

My Boyfriend surprised me with this birthday getaway. We are Poultry farmers and can't just leave anytime for a vacation. This place was perfect and within driving distance of our farm. No phone service or internet was a blessing....The cabin was clean and everything we needed was provided. The cabin (#4) was decorated for Christmas which was a pleasant surprize.... More

We just recently stayed at fiddlers roost cabins over the thanksgiving holiday and loved our getaway. Tempe and Andy were warm and welcoming from start to finish. They offered us dinner at their home with friends and family. The food was AMAZING, from our delightful French toast to the amazing eggs Benedict, We kicked the plates clean! We had a... More

The Fiddler's Roost is the best lodging directly on the BRP I've experienced. There are several very nice B&Bs and cabins along the way, but none have the combination of convenience, privacy, and breakfast, as well as comfortable and pleasant cabins. The catch is their cancellation policy, which is: Guests canceling within 14 days of arrival will be charged one... More

We read up on the website before we arrived and I wondered what time breakfast might be. There is no mention of time of breakfast, even today, on their website. We visited the weekend of Sept 26, 2015. I thought it might be listed on the sign in sheet and we could maybe choose a range of times (ex. 8... More

Hello Folks, the initial $25.00 charge is actually part of the balance of your stay and not a cleaning fee. In the months of September and October we had 25 couples stay in the Bear Foot cabin of which 3 couples left unpleasant reviews. Two of the bad reviews were actually from the same couple. The guest I had an... More

This place needs to be pressure-washed inside and out. We stayed in the Bear Foot cabin which may have been cute in its day. Now, it looks as though it has not had a good cleaning in years. The floors are dirty; the basket for used linens is moldy; the bedroom ceiling fan is caked with crud; the blinds are... More

Wow ! Very harsh and obviously highly exaggerated and simply not true. After reading this review I responded directly to the cabin for inspection. There were no torn screens and only the bedroom ceiling fan had some dust on the blades. I guess saying a dusty fan wouldn't have the same negative impact as the word crud. The Bear Foot... More

Linens were clean; cabin was not so much! Spider webs - dusty old ones - hung in several places. The lighting was terrible! We ended up having a very rainey 3-day weekend that canceled several of our outdoor plans. Great time for reading! Unfortunately the lighting was so poor that we went to Lowes to get light bulbs for the... More

Hello folks I would like to respond to this review just to put a little light on the situation (no pun intended). Our cabins are designed for romantic getaways therefore bright lighting isn't appropriate however, if you desire brighter lighting we have several reading lamps and or higher wattage light bulbs we can provide so just ask.
