Lets just say that we will be talking about this vacation for years to come!
-Campfire Lodgings is conveniently located near Asheville, the Biltmore Estate and the Great Smoky Mountains.
-If you have an RV, this is a beautiful place to stay. Beautiful view, nice hookups, nice campsites. I would recommend sites P1, P2 and P3!
-Andee in the office is a very genuine, hard working and fun person. We really enjoyed talk to her.
-Loretta the Watch Cat is great!
-We stayed in the Cliff House . . . . Buyer Beware! While the website and the brochure is technically accurate, it in no way prepares you for the actual stay in this not- very-clean, very musty smelling house.
-In short, dank and dingy come to mind. It is furnished in mismatched,eclectic 1950's antique items. It would be somewhat charming if it was clean. Cobwebs, spider webs and insect shavings are visible everywhere including on top of the sheets and dresser in the bedroom with the double bed.
-The yellow flocked wallpaper in the bathroom is literally falling off the walls.
-Many of the lights either don't turn on or have burned out bulbs.
-The outdoor surrounding woods engulf the cabin, choking out much needed sunlight.
-The windows are filthy and need to be cleaned so that you can see out.
Sadly, this could be a very cool place to stay in. It needs a little love and alot of cleaning. The architectural details like the fireplace and the stair cases are fantastic. It you can get past the smell, the dirt and the saw blade that greets you at the front door, then its an interesting stay.
The only humorous part of our stay was the envelope on the kitchen counter for "Housekeeper Tip".
