An awesome cabin for a group stay! If a winter stay, be sure to have 4wd. Winter weather can have an impact on the drive up there. This cabin is "back there". The view from the porch is one that never is tiring!

Excellent experience overall! As always, Valle Crucis Log Cabin Rental staff were great to work with, the cabin was just as nice as we remembered it from our first visit and it even snowed on our way up the mountain which made it even more special!

Mountain MasterPeace is a beautiful cabin with a wonderful Mountain View. While the house is pretty far from town, the roads were easy to travel. Valle Crucis Log Cabin Rentals made the experience easy and the house was well maintained and clean. Thanks.

Great mountain getaway home

Aldo M. from Saint Helena Island, SC
Stayed 7 days ending October 2021

Beautiful home, beautifully furnished. Great views, private and quiet. Wonderful hot tub and fireplace. Location somewhat remote and takes 15 minutes to reach paved road and at least a half hour to get to any shopping, dining or recreation other than hiking which is right at your door. Minor gripe is that you need to bring your own soap, paper towels, laundry detergent, decent (not plastic) barware and a ridiculous lack of clothes hangers for such a well designed house. Property manager of little help. Great golf in area, as well as hiking and fishing. Aside from the remote location this is a great mountain getaway place.

The Perfect Getaway!

Stayed 8 days ending December 2021

The staff at Valle Crucis Log Cabin Rentals are amazing! They go out of their way to be sure you are happy and well taken care of. This is our third visit to Mountain Masterpiece. The description given is on point, but no words can describe what it is actually like to experience this setting. If you are looking for a place to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life, Mountain Masterpiece is perfect. We explored the surrounding areas during the day (although it is hard to leave the view from the wrap around porch ), built fires, played games and cooked in the well equipped kitchen every night. I would definitely recommend this cabin and Valle Crusis Log Cabin Rentals to anyone wanting to experience the beauty of the mountains. My family plans to make this an annual destination!

What a marvelous cabin! The view was captivating at all times of the day. We felt secluded and yet were only 15 minutes to Banner Elk and closer to Valle Crucis. We had terrific hiking, then a lovely soak in the hot tub. For hiking, don't miss Carver's Gap at Roan Mountain for panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and of course, enjoy the Blue Ridge Parkway. Cabin was quite comfortable and well-equipped. I can't think of a thing I would change!

Magical as always. If you ever want to sell this place, we would like to be first on the notification list. We've been staying at MMP every year, sometimes more than once a year, for the past 5 or 6, I believe. We will definitely be returning!

Every bit as wonderful as described.

"Bob" Robert C. from Orlando, FL, Unknown
Stayed 7 days ending June 2020

The cabin is at a cool 4200' altitude, with a serene, panoramic vista looking north toward Mt. Rogers in Virginia. Hummingbirds buzz the porch, and the hot tub is the perfect end to an idyllic day. Banner Elk and its restaurants, winery, and brewery are not so far, yet the cabin feels a world away from the bustle of civilization. It was delivered to us in spotless condition. The well-equipped kitchen allowed us to remain aloof from crowded dining spots, and the beds afforded us untroubled sleep. The staff at Valle Crucis Log Cabins was friendly, flexible, and helpful to a fault, and check-out was painless. This place and this company were wonderful in every way.

Annual Mountain Christmas Tree Trip

Brad F. from La Grange, North Carolina,
Stayed 4 days ending November 2020

We have used VCLCR many times and stayed in Mountain Masterpiece once before. The cabin is great, the views spectacular. The only drawback is the remoteness of the location. It is not easy to get to. Also the driveway and parking are real issues. You either have to back out or back in. There is no room for multiple vehicles or even one to turn around.
Most cabins we have stayed in have a cabinet in the kitchen where other renters have left a few basics like spices, oil, coffee filters etc. And we have always left a few things as well. However, there was NOTHING available here nor a space for basics like salt and pepper. Doesn't seem like a big deal but when you're not convenient to a grocery store it can be an inconvenience.
Overall I would recommend this cabin to other vacationers, just bring your supplies when you come!

Better than expected!

Valerie J. from Largo, FL
Stayed 7 days ending December 2020

The house was much bigger than we thought. It was all decorated for Christmas with a huge tree. The spa is top of the line and was extra clean and very hot. The view is amazing. Plenty of wood for the beautiful fireplace. Enough kitchen tools to cook for a big family. Needed a 4 wheel drive because of the snow. We loved it!

Winter in the NC mountains

Anonymous from North Augusta, South Carolina,
Stayed 4 days ending December 2020

We stayed for five days just before Christmas. Cabin was in a moderately remote location - mainly winding mountain roads but the final couple of miles were unpaved snow/ice covered. Glad to have brought an AWD Tesla rather than minivan due to staff recommendation which was accurate for this time of year. Summer would be fine with car. Driveway is tight - would be tough to get two cars there and wouldn’t be able to turn around. The cabin is well furnished with a wood-burning fireplace (firewood supplied). Gorgeous view from wrap-around deck. Very quiet as you’d expect. Clean hot tub on the uncovered portion of the deck. Kitchen well furnished but as other mentioned - bring your own spices, salt/pepper, and condiments - especially during COVID. The staff was wonderful with quick contact beforehand and were very knowledgeable about their properties. I’ve rented many places thru VRBO but this was by far the best communication that I’ve experienced. Location has great access to ski and recreation areas. I would definitely stay here again.

Mountain masterpiece in Banner Elk NC.

Brian T. from Pauline, SC, US
Stayed 2 days ending February 2021

This property was fabulous if you like being on top of the world! The cabin was perfect and had everything we needed for a large family (bring kindling, but firewood is provided). It overlooks a nearby beautiful ski slope, but it is not too close. Very secluded. When we arrived there was ice from a storm earlier in the week. The last 1.7 miles was on an icy gravel
road. 4 wheel drive is a must if going during or after a winter storm. We booked this trip in hopes to see snow and we absolutely did. It was amazing and even snowed on our last night there. The kids loved it and even sledded down the driveway. The view from the front and the back were amazing. I haven’t seen the cabin in the warmer months, but with the view, I know it would be amazing. We will most likely stay here again next year but for 3 nights instead of 2.

Great Cabin - Old School Property Management

Anonymous from MOORESVILLE, NC, US
Stayed 2 days ending March 2021

Old school check-in process. Days prior was emailed a packet that had to be signed and initialed on multiple pages then scanned and emailed back.Day of check-in you must go to property mtg company and pickup keys. On checkout you have to drive back to office (25 min from cabin) to return keys. Then they ask you to call to let them know you have checked out. Not a huge deal, but with door codes and digital acknowledgment of rules it could be simple.

Sandra and Stephen W. from Delray Beach, FL
Stayed 28 days ending August 2019

This was a wonderful place to stay. Just about everything about it was as it was pictured on VRBO. It was very clean upon our arrival, everything worked, the house was well equipped as described, there were no disappointments. But the outstanding quality of this house is the spectacular view. I have been renting for the month of August for over 10 years to escape the South Florida heat so I've experienced a few disappointing rentals along the way and many wonderful ones. This house is one that I hope to return to next year. There is no way to describe the enjoyment of hours spent on the deck, sometimes with clear skies, other with the fog rolling in and out of the mountains. Really quite wonderful. The kitchen was easy to work in. I know it to be true because I had many family members come for a few days at a time and we had just about all of our meals together at home. During my final week we had wonderful fires in the fireplace, a treat for South Floridians. The ride up and down the mountain was not difficult and soon became a breeze. The scenery up and down the mountain is just lovely. I took the time to say hello to the horses, cows, wild turkeys, bunnies and one singular deer. I spotted a small black bear scrambling off the street one morning but never saw it again. When I go off into the woods on my own I always carry Bear Spray, just in case. The rental people were very nice. I arranged through them to meet their new employee, Grady, who led me up the mountain the first time and also completely unloaded my car for me. What a nice young man and so helpful after a long car ride. I, of course, had arranged in advance a nice gratuity for him. I must mention how wonderful it was to have the 's beautiful, comfortable, easy to operate, holds 4 people easily, and was the perfect treat at the end of each day on the mountain.

My family stayed here for 4 nights. The wind on the mountain at that cabin was so loud! It was awesome. The cabin was beautifully built and decorated as well. The road to the cabin was like a roller-coaster. Well, the driver made it that way. Ha! You definitely want to make sure you want to get your groceries before you make your way to that cabin. I can't say enough wonderful things about this cabin. My family had a wonderful time, and the company we went through was so wonderful as well.
