My husband and I stayed here for four nights. We did not know what to expect since there were no reviews of Foxhunt on any travel websites. We were pleasently surprised when we arrived.
The drive to Foxhunt is through some very windy roads and the units are on high hills. I would NOT recomment coming here with a car with a standard transmission unless you are a very accompished driver on steep hills.
We were pleased to discover that our rental was a two level townhouse nestled in the woods. There is a master bedroom that has a king sized bed. The second bedroom had two twin beds. In the master bathroom there is a enormous jetted bathtub. There is a second bathroom for the other bedroom. The living room, kitchen and dining area are of good size and has nice furnishing. The kitchen comes equipped with plates, utensils, pots and pans so you don't need to bring any cooking impliments with you. There is a balcony just off of the living room with a table and chairs. The master bedroom has its own seperate balcony. There is also a washer and drier (on the small side but they work).
We arrived on late sunday so we had to check in at the security area (off of US 64). if you are checking in on normal hours there is a registration office. Otherwise, you will need to stop at the security office (follow the signs for late check in). Our GPS said Foxhunt was further up on 64 than it was, so you might need to keep driving if you don't see it right away.
Staying here you are also given access to the ski slope and tubing park (when in season. Check the website for hours). The slope is on the small side and would be good for beginners. There is also a rec center with a pool, hot tub, sauna, tanning bed, game room and gym. There is also a private lake with boats for use and swimming (seasonal since it was frozen when we were there).
There is a grocery store in Cashiers that is about 15 minutes down the road so you can stock up on food when you get here if you dont bring enough in your cooler. There are plenty of hiking trails and lakes around for the outdoors type.
We got a good deal on our room probably because it was offseason. I think the jetted tub in the master bathroom alone is worth staying here. I would absolutely recommend this place if you are looking for something in the mountains that is quiet. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed our stay here.
