Perfect Get together for our Family.

July 2019
, Greenvill, KY

Overall
5

We came from Kentucky and one daughter from PA to meet up with our daughter who lives in Gainesville. Pursuit of Happiness was everything we hoped it would be. We enjoyed our stay so much, spending evenings on the screened porch with plenty of seating for all, while we listened to our son-in-laws guitar playing and singing. The swinging bed was delightful to many. Our dog enjoyed walking the loop. Pursuit of Happiness fulfilled it's purpose., bringing us much joy and sweet memories of our time together. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home that was the perfect get together place for our family.

We have had the best time at your sweet cabin! It was just perfect! We love all the little perks that you have like the K-cups, water games, etc. I especially love how we can tell you have a love for dogs. Our Charlie and Gertie absolutely loved the back porch and the wind chimes that you put on their level so they could play music. We have fallen in love with Blue Ridge and can't wait to come back. Thank you so much for your generous hospitality and letting us stay at your gorgeous cabin that made us feel right at home.

What a Relaxing Weekend!

What a relaxing weekend we had! Thank you for sharing such a beautiful home and location with us! Our daughter, Jodie, planned this weekend get away for us so that we could all be together before our oldest son, Emmett, has to report to West Point next weekend. We will miss him so much! We enjoyed hiking to the swinging bridge, strolling through downtown Blue Ridge, and having ice cream, getting delicious BBQ from Blue Smoke BBQ, and making s'mores by your fireplace. We enjoyed your porches and views of clouds and seeing stars - all the simple pleasures of life. Your beautiful home was a perfect place to enjoy our family time and try to hold onto precious memories together. Thank you all so much!

Thank you for a wonderful stay with friends @ the Pursuit of Happiness. We enjoyed our time on the back patio and around the outdoor fireplace roasting marshmellows and enjoying drinks. The weather was perfect along with the setting. We took a fun day trip into Blue Ridge, Rode the Scenic Train to TN/GA border. Lunch was so-so @ Habeneros (don't get the beef) But the rest of the trip was fun and memorable for our Family. Thanks So Much! The Florences, from Roswell, GA

My Girlfriend and I rented this cabin for the weekend to celebrate our birthdays. This cabin was beautiful and relaxing. Scenery and location was amazing. Have to admit, we were very disappointed in the water tho. Water had a strong foul odor due to no filtration of the sulfur and lead from the well. Us being people that enjoy our long baths and showers this was definitely a let down. Owner would surely benefit by investing in a water filtration and would solve the foul water smell. Other than the water issue tho, this was a beautiful cabin and we had an amazing weekend away. So much to do in the surrounding areas. Cant wait to take another trip back that way soon. Would recommend this cabin to others for the views and the cabin itself but definitely warn them about the water.

Manager's Response

Hi Richard. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at Pursuit of Happiness. I wanted to let you know that the water issue has been resolved. The owners were able to get the well company to install an aerator onto the well itself so between that and the whole house filter we have had no more bad water smells. Thank you for staying with us!!

We had an amazing getaway at Pursuit of Happiness. The cabin is cozy and comfortable and well stocked. The 3 levels each have a bed room, bathroom and a living space which makes more it comfortable to travel with other couples or kids. We brought our dog and she loved the 1 mile loop walk each morning in the neighborhood. Only 20 min from downtown Blue Ridge but tucked away so you feel like you have escaped. We can’t wait to go back!!

We absolutely loved everything about our stay at Pursuit of Happiness!! The beds were all so comfortable, there is a very comfy chair that I took a couple naps in the great room on, the "bed swing" as my children referred to it on the main floor was so nice, the hot tub was awesome, the bottles of water provided were a lifesaver, and we had some cozy fires in the fireplace! The lighting throughout the house was wonderful, the bathrooms all were well stocked with towels and wash cloths, and there were nice throw blankets throughout the house for added coziness. The view from the house was just what I needed - so beautiful and good for my soul. We were there the first weekend of November and the leaves on the trees were breathtakingly gorgeous! Our family also enjoyed taking a walk around the circle - it was a nice walk and the perfect "hike" with 3 little kids. I was worried that since it was a pet friendly property that it would smell like dogs, but it did not! The house had a great smell to it and I am picky about smells. Thank you to the owners for opening your home to our family for the weekend. It was a nice way to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary and a convenient drive to downtown Blue Ridge where we took the kids to a park and ate lunch one day and dinner the next. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing mountain getaway!

This is a wonderful cabin in a great location. The furnishings were of great quality and the owners keep it very well stocked with lots of extras you don't normally find in a rental cabin. Great screen porches surrounded by trees, great movie viewing room, games for the kids, hot tub and outdoor fireplace. Things that would make it even better...The seating area in front of the outdoor fireplace is small, really only enough room for two people. It would have been nice to have some seating on the bottom level screen porch. It was bare except for the hot tub. Wifi is a little slow. We like watching movies off netflix and the picture quality suffered a bit. The only real negative for us was the cleaning service. The cabin was not ready when we arrived. Granted, we were 15 minutes early, check in was 4 pm, we arrived at 3:45 and there was still a lot of cleaning left to be done. The maid said she had arrived late. We left to go eat dinner so the maid could finish up, and we returned around 6:30pm. During our stay we found lots of pet hair on the rugs, a lot food crumbs and nuts on the loft floor, used tissues on the porch, and the hot tub cover was very dirty. Overall though, we would stay here again because of the quality of the cabin. The owners have done an excellent job making it cozy and inviting. There are some friendly neighbors living in the next door cabin too.

The house is very nice and felt quite secluded. It was nicely outfitted with everything you'd expect. The home theater in the basement is a big plus if you are a movie lover. One thing they don't really mention is that it is way back on a twisty road that goes up and over a mountain. It's basically a bumpy driveway or two track with a number of houses off of it. The water is a bit smelly if that is something that might bother you.

We kept commenting all weekend about how thoughtful the home was. Every detail was perfect, even an umbrella next to the door in case of bad weather. The home is beautifully decorated, with mountain views to match . We definitely plan to stay here again in the future.

We were on our way back from Florida and wanted to extent our vacation. Since we had used this rental company in the past and had good experiences we were able to locate a place that met our needs. For a rental this home had very nice, comfortable furniture. The kitchen was well stocked. We enjoyed a wood fire in the indoor fireplace. It also has a fireplace on the deck but we didn't use that.... but maybe another time. The mountain view was wonderful. It was secluded which was excellent!
The only suggestion I would have is a manual specific for that cabin
which includes the wifi pass word and particulars about appliances and expectations for check out. One was given to us by the office but it was a more general outline. We had a great time!! Thanks for allowing us to rent your lovely cabin.
