We love this cabin and its beautiful creek. The house has been clean and welcoming each time we have stayed.

Wonderful private honeymoon cabin.

Wonderful private honeymoon cabin! Our only complaint was the very limited hot water when showering. It was hot for 2-3mins then ice cold for 2-3 mins and then hot again for a couple minutes. The rest of the cabin was as expected or better than expected. We really enjoyed the hot tub and secluded feeling. Listening to the stream behind the cabin was very relaxing as well. The management company does need to update their hours of operation online. We attempted to get to them first thing in the morning to check out and discovered they didn’t open for another hour.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Yearling. The cabin was perfect for 2, with all the basics, and very cleam. We especially enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub, watching and listening to the creek flow by. Very peacefu, especially after a day of hiking.

Quiet, private and remote. An excellent place to relax next to a babbling brook.

2021 Fall Vacation

William (Tom) P. from Titusville, FL
Stayed 7 days ending October 2021

This was our second stay at the Yearling. We missed last year due to Covid. I pastor a church with a school and love the Yearling because it fits my need in a vacation to totally get away with just my wife and me. I searched for a place that was in the woods and a bit isolated. A bubbling stream you could hear from the cabin, one bedroom, clean and comfortable, fireplace. Sitting on the back porch listening to the stream while sipping on a hot cup of coffee. Reading a book down by the stream. Taking long walks down the country gravel road surrounded by God's creation.

Silver vacation

Caroline S. from Cary, NC, US
Stayed 3 days ending August 2021

Cabin was awesome....all the conveniences.
Main light in living room with fan would not turn on but no big deal. Cell service almost non existent.
Outdoor hot tub could have been a little warmer
We loved it and would stay here again.

Remote, Peaceful, Relaxing Getaway

Scott M. from Littleton, NC
Stayed 7 days ending July 2021

If you are looking for a remote, peaceful, relaxing getaway, The Yearling is it. The decor is tasteful and is just as pictured. The cabin was clean and had everything we needed. Relaxing in the hot tub and rocking on the back porch listening to the creek was just what we needed. Banner Elk is only 20 mins away with groceries, shopping, and restaurants. We would highly recommend this property if you want to get away from it all.

Beautiful secluded cabin

James G. from Browns Summit NC, NC
Stayed 4 days ending August 2021

This was a beautiful very secluded cabin. All the “creature comforts “ were there for those who like them but we didn’t bother to turn on the TV or radio. The cabin was spectacular. I would plan to have most meals there and bring in food although Banner Elk is a short drive away.

Wonderful place to stay!

Tyler W. from Rolesville, NC
Stayed 3 days ending September 2021

Wonderful place to relax and get away! It was very comfortable and clean. The hot tub was VERY clean and well maintained. The location so close to a stream was the cherry on top! It's a spacious and comfortable cabin for being one bedroom. We would come again for sure.

In the woods

Norris S. from Radcliff, KY, US
Stayed 3 days ending October 2021

Very nice cabin, clean, items provided more than sufficient. A little farther drive than we wanted but nice drive. Wish there were shades on all windows for a feeling on privacy and security. Would liked to have fire pit, did not use hot tube but looked to be very inviting. Great stay.

Cleanest and coziest little honeymoon cabin in the area! The staff at the rental agency are always helpful. We are actually 4x returning customers.

7th year in a row!

Everything you want in a cozy mountain cabin! Spectacular piece of property in a particularly beautiful section of NC overlooking Laurel Creek.

Come and Rest

William (Tom) P. from Titusville, FL
Stayed 7 days ending October 2019

My wife and I love the out of doors. We wanted a cabin that was secluded, near a running stream, one bedroom and a wood fireplace. The yearling had all that plus very clean and comfortable! The hot tub was a plus. If you want to get away from the cares of this world and be able to shut down and rest and reflect this cabin was built for just that. We have already reserved the Yearling for a week next year!

The cabin was perfect. The indoor fireplace was nice and everything was very clean! Can’t wait until we can stay again! The only thing I’d recommend is a outside fire pit.

This was a fantastic location and accommodation. The sound of the back yard stream was so relaxing.

Just what we needed!

Richard C. from Blythewood, SC, US
Stayed 7 days ending October 2020

During these crazy and stressful times we needed to get away and relax, This is just as advertised !

We enjoyed the piece and quiet, the amenities are very nice, and if you want seclusion this is the spot.

Cabin was extremely clean on check in and immediately made me feel comfortable.

Only small downside is the fireplace has some issues and you can only burn fire logs and not real wood.

I would highly recommend

Wonderful 4 day getaway from very busy lives. Perfect size for a couple. Well stocked kitchen for most all of your cooking wants & needs. Enjoyed hiking around the surrounding area, hot tub relaxation, board games & reading by the fireplace. Would love to return to this gem to explore and experience more in the local area.

Exactly as pictured. We loved the stream in the back. It sounded relaxing. We stayed there for 6 nights. We only ate out once. It was perfect for just the 2 of us.
The fireplace was out of commission during our stay but it was still enjoyable.

Really enjoyed our stay at the Yearling. It was perfect in so many ways. Had everything we needed and was amazingly relaxing. We highly recommend staying here and hope to return in the future.

This cabin topped our expectations. We went to NC for our 34th wedding anniversary. We live in FL and wanted to escape to a cooler location with a change of scenery. How wonderful it was to listen to the creek flowing, sleep with the windows open and hearing the wonderful sounds of nature. The surrounding area was as much of a great experience as the cabin itself. From the local bands playing in the open air, the shops, to the restaurants, all were an experience that could not be more relaxing and enjoyable.

Cozy Cabin!

Constance B. from Johnsonville, SC, Unknown
Stayed 2 days ending September 2019

Great cabin! Clean and very spacious! The only thing I wished the cabin did have was air conditioning. It has a furnace for the heat but no a/c and it was still very warm when we were up there and it was warm and muggy feeling in the cabin with no a/c. Other than that we loved our stay!
