We have been visiting these cabins every year since 2005. We have had family get together's and girls weekend getaways We have stayed in most all of the cabins. The cabins are always clean, they have good prices and everything you need for a pleasant visit. There is a park close by for the kids to play at. The hot... More

My boyfriend & I stayed at one of these cottages over Valentine's Day weekend. We were looking for a cozy, romantic getaway, with an outdoor hot tub & full kitchen--& that's exactly what we got. It was a wonderful time. The cottage is beautiful (we stayed in the cottage called Summit ) well-maintained, fully stocked firewood, clean hot tub, washer... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time at McKinley Cabin this past weekend.  The cabin was cozy and comfortable.  Everything that we needed was there and there was no need for us to leave to get anything.  It was wonderfully relaxing and rejuvenating to just spend time together in the quietness of the cabin. Thank you for the opportunity... More

First off let me say we are not Snobs. We can handle cobwebs. We just want to state the truth about our stay. My husband and I stayed at McKinley's Cabin for a long week end in November 2014. We won't be back. Like someone mentioned, it was more like a Hunting Cabin. The staircase was so narrow neither of... More

My wife and I and our friends from Virginia stayed a General Wises choice just last weekend. The cabin was everything we expected, rustic, convenient and best of all, relaxing. In the two weeks prior to our stay, there was significant snow fall, so the road leading to the cabin was snow covered. The road had been graded and gravel... More

We arrived to this McKinley after dark. There were no lights left on to help find it, had to call Dave for directions - who seemed very put out to have to take the time to give them to us! Once we found it, (open and unlocked) it was more of a hunting shack than romantic getaway (as advertised). The... More

I think what we have here is a case of mistaken identity. I followed our correspondence and we discussed both McKinley's Cabin and our Summit cottage. From your comments about the cabin it sounds as though, you had our Summit cottage in mind but you reserved McKinley's Cabin. The deck at Summit is much larger and it is nestled in... More

My family and I have used Carnifex Cabins for 8 years. We have had Christmas with the family and our girls weekends are up to twice a year now. We have always found them to be well maintained, clean and very affordable. Dave is great to work with. It’s a cabin/cottage so we have never expected 5 star hotel accommodations... More

I am a repeat customer and would not consider staying anywhere else in the area. Well kept, quiet, beautiful cabins and grounds make for a great stay. Staff is very accommodating and takes care of business. Although secluded, the cabins are close to some beautiful overlooks and shopping is convenient. Definitely recommend!!!!!!!!

This is my third time staying in this cabin. It is always well kept and clean. Plenty of room and perfect for a weekend getaway. Anything needed during our stay is quickly taken care of by the staff. Never disappointed with anything at this location.
