We had a wonderful week at Ambleside cabin in Little Bavaria! Kitchen is very well stocked, pool table, hot tub, and many porches with Grandfather views made for a great stay for everyone! The master upstairs is to die for with a smart tv, fireplace, soaker tub and private porch! Ambleside is very private at the top of the development. Caught many bass and sunfish in the catch and release pond and saw lots of deer and bunnies every day. All of the staff at VCLCR were very helpful with our booking and adding nights to our stay. We have been staying with VCLCR since the early 2000's and don't stay with anyone else in the High Country! Jim and his staff are wonderful.

Ambleside was great! The cabin was clean and the kitchen was fully stocked. It was close to Banner Elk Winery Villa and Grandfather Vineyard which was the purpose of our weekend getaway. We had three couples and there was ample room for us. My only suggestion would be to have a tv in the main living room as it was more spacious than downstairs for gathering and hanging out.

We always have a great time at Ambleside. The place is perfect for our family with the 3 levels and it is such a beautiful site. We started this Thanksgiving tradition several years ago and hope to continue for many more years.

Great, spacious cabin! My husband and I wanted to plan a trip away, yet still be as safe as possible in these times of COVID. So we booked this cabin! The view from here is fantastic. We really loved the fire pit the most, and we appreciated how clean the hot tub was. The kitchen has everything you need. General areas were very clean and nicely decorated.
I only have 2 complaints; the black mold growing in the master shower. The hot handle needs taken off and soaked in bleach. This is the only shower we used so I can’t speak for the others. Sadly this seems to be fairly common in most cabins we’ve stayed. The second is the heating. It seems very unbalanced between the three floors. Set it to 70 it’s still very cold on the bottom, but unbreathable hot in the master. Since it was just us and our toddler sleeping in the same room, it was alright, but you might want to keep that in mind if using all three bedrooms.
We would love to stay in this cabin again sometime in the future

Ambleside is beautiful with a truly scenic view of the mountains, water, etc. I have stayed with Log Cabin Rentals for approximately 20 years so I’ve been very satisfied. Over the years, we may have had a small complaint or two but our overall stay has always been very relaxing. If I had to critique this cabin, I would only offer a few suggestions for the owner/agency. First, the ice maker makes minimal ice at a time. It may need to be checked. Secondly, the wood was so green, we could not keep a fire going. We finally (the day before we left) tried the wood on the bottom of the pile and it stayed lit. We have had trouble with really wet wood in the past so this can be quite disappointing. Lastly, there was no tv in the main den area. With smart TVs, no cable is required so a tv mounted above the fireplace would be perfect. The games could be updated but with a smart tv, no movies are needed (they were extremely old anyway). Overall, the house was pretty and our stay successful. Of course, it’s always too short!!

We had a very nice stay. The cabin was very nice but could have used some TV's in the bedrooms and main floor.

A truly special place

We just stayed at Ambleside for our 4th time. It is absolutely the best cabin. It checks every box for us. The house is beautifully decorated, sparkling clean and you can't beat the privacy. The hot tub is large and positioned away from the house so you can relax with the jets and admire the natural beauty that surrounds you. The fire pit is also in a great location, close to the house so you can run in to refill your wine glass and grab an extra bag of marshmallows. The kitchen is loaded with every gadget and utensil that you could ever need. The 2 wood burning fireplaces are also a great feature. I can't say enough about this cabin. We have stayed in other cabins (which were also nice) but we keep coming back to Ambleside.

This cabin is beyond perfection! It has absolutely everything you could possibly want in a vacation cabin in the mountains. The cabin is close enough to town that you can be anywhere you want in less than 15 minutes but far enough out that you still feel secluded. I can't emphasize enough how perfect and luxurious this cabin is. Everything went smoothly from booking the reservation, to the friendly and helpful staff checking us in and out. We felt totally spoiled every step of the way and we will be back!!!!

This house is beautiful and well appointed. It has terrific amenities and with 3 levels the kids could spread out and enjoy individual activities. Would stay here again!

Great place for a getaway. Feels very secluded yet not a bad drive into Boone for provisions. The whole family thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Relaxing Weekend with Friends
Susan H. from Albemarle, NC,
Stayed 3 days ending October 2020
This cabin is beautiful and was perfect for 3 couples as each had a floor to their own. Location was great! Beautiful cabin with beautiful view! Relaxing porches with seating and a view of Grandfather Mountain. Hot tub, fire pit. Kitchen was well stocked. There was a slight problem with trying to make all 3 floors comfortable. When main level was comfortable, upper floor too hot and lower floor too cold. King bed very comfy, queen beds were not.

Retreat to Ambleside
Whitney T. from Rural Hall, North Carolina,

We had a wonderful experience at Ambleside. This was our third time booking through Valle Crucis Log Cabin Rentals. We utilized this trip as a business retreat to make goals and review progress over the past year. The amenities provided for a relaxing getaway and allowed a break from work with the hot tub and pool table.
My one concern was that housekeeping notated dog hair left in one of the beds, however our pets did not travel with us this trip. We did not use one of the bedrooms so it makes me question the cleanliness of that third room. The property management company was easy to work with on the housekeeping note and we will continue to book through Valle Crucis.
