          Perfect. We are coming back. Quiet, serene, and beautiful inside and out. Immaculately clean, lovely bath and spa soaps. Rejuvenating good night's sleep, perfect climate and lighting. All wifi and cable works with no problem. This is our gold standard for NC mountain getaway.

          We were on the far end, on the second floor and we could see the mountains. I'm sure the third floor had even better views. There is an awesome sunrise from the window.
