“A wonderful experience and a great, relaxing stay with lovely, helpful hosts!”
Reviewed July 22, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We were a party of six plus two little kids and we've had a wonderful 5 nights stay. Ema and her husband were very helpful, accommodating and welcoming; they brought us fresh farm eggs and cheese as well as left wine for us on arrival; even provided us with beds for the little ones as well as a baby chair, and all came in handy; the beds were great to sleep in, the bathrooms and everything else was spotless; lots of space inside as well as outside. Loved the bbq area with the jasmin bush and the table for eating al fresco. The wrap around porch is a great place to sunbathe, read a book, relax and take in the beautiful surroundings. Very easy to get to shops, to Bran Castle, a variety of hiking trails, restaurants and other attractions. Of course, with perfect weather and so much to do outside, we did not stay too much in the house so I wish we would have stayed a few more days. Thank you Ema! We loved our stay at your place!

Liked least: the fact that we stayed just a few nights :), wished we could have stayed more!

“Value for Money!”
Reviewed July 22, 2016 for a stay in November 2015

person found this review helpful

I initially did not write a review of my stay at the Carpathian Log home since this was not my first time staying there. Being a repeat customer should tell you something! But when I saw the horrific review that was just posted I felt obligated to write now. I don't know what bone to pick that reviewer has with the owner (could it be a disgruntled competitor?) The house is a little bit of paradise on the side of the mountain. It is clean and well appointed and has all the amenities one would expect for a much higher priced rental. The open floor plan affords a beautiful vista into the valley. Since my last visit the owner has added a new outdoor BBQ, a new fence around the property and replaced one of the wooden staircases leading up to the entrance door. This is not what you expect from someone who doesn't care about the property or the clients. It shows a continual desire to improve and upgrade the property and some pride in assuring each visitor a wonderful stay.
The owner is always available and offers her knowledge of the area freely. As you can see from all the other reviews, this is a perfect hideaway/retreat. Don't be dissuaded by some jealous competitor or person who writes a poor review for their own advantage. This property offers exceptional value for money and from my research is priced very competitively with other local rentals.

Liked best: It is well located and offers much more value than the price would indicate.
Liked least: The road up the side of the mountain is a bit steep and must be negotiated slowly.

“Perfect, idyllic retreat in beautiful countryside”
Reviewed January 24, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

It's hard to put into words how wonderful the Carpathian Log Home is. It is beautifully furnished, very cosy, and the views from the floor to ceiling windows are fantastic. The house is ideally located about 30 minute walk or a few minutes drive from Bran and there are plenty of local amenities that are easily accessible. We were fortunate to experience heavy snowfall during our stay which made the countryside look even more beautiful and made the log fire in the living room even more magical. Even though we didn't meet Ema, she was always on hand to answer any questions and give advice. We will definitely be coming back. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

Thank you Georgina, it's always such a pleasure to hear that my guests had a good time at the Carpathian Log Home! As for the lack of snow, mid January/ February is a safer bet for the snow lovers here. Give it another try sometime, we'd love to have you back!:)

The road leading to the house during snowy times can be a problem indeed, but only on the last 150 meters to the house, being very steep. Guests can park their cars safely and walk the last 150 meters, or ask me and I'll be happy to help with my 4wd car.

Thanks again for coming and looking forward to seeing you for a summer Transylvanian adventure too!:)

“Great stay with my husband and his parents”
Reviewed September 27, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We spent two days in Bran and booked the Carpathian Log Home. The only criticism is getting up to the log home. The road is a bit steep and rocky. I would recommend an SUV if you are staying in inclement weather. The views are stunning and breathtaking. The views from the balconies and inside of the home rivaled the views we had in Sinaia after travelling up the mountain on a cable car.
The home is well equipped and the kitchen sufficient for any cook. Unfortunately, the two nights we were there the wind was quite strong and consistent. We were planning on barbecuing but nether had the opportunity. The heating system is digital with a control pad, the unit has a sauna and small Jacuzzi.
For the price, a tremendous deal!

“Our home for two weeks”
Reviewed September 10, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We - six adults and a 5year old had a great time at the Carpathian Loghome. The house covered all our requirements and expectances.
Ema and Dan, our wonderful hosts helped us in everthing, especially, when the kid was ill. The flat tire of one of our cars could be repaired immediately thanks to Dan`s connections.
Their advices were really helpfully and we found hidden, very good restaurants.
Can you immagine how we enjoined stargazing and the rising full moon siiting outside in the gazebo? Divine moments! The cozy beds donate us deep sleeps.
Thank-you Ema and Dan for two terrific weeks !!!
Hope to see you again one day

“The best house we have ever stayed in!!!”
Reviewed August 1, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

When we first saw to photos of the house we were sure that they simply can't be for real. This unique house simply looked too nice and too good to be true. But guess what? IT IS TRUE! Each and every photod you see on the web is for real!

Luckily enough we found ourselves staying for a full week in the most beautiful house we have ever seen and stayed in!! If that's not enough, the house was very clean and very well maintened and equipped. It simply gave us a great home feeling.

The delight of staying in such a great house can only compete with the incredible delight of getting to know its honors. Ema and Dan were incredibly warm and friendly. Whenever we asked for some information we got it in the most detailed way. More than that - There was no request we made which were not fully and positively answered. (including a very challenging request we made on our last day which looked impossible but then turned into an undorgetable event which was defintely one of the highlights of our trip!)

After one week of stay we simply didn't want to leave. Unfortnately enough the house was booked till mid October and we sadly had to move on. But we will surely come back!

Ema and Dan, thank you so so much for everything you did for us! It was really a pleasure to get to know you and we will patiently wait for you to keep your promise to give us a chance to show you some of our hospitality.
