We stayed at the Creekside Reflections cabin in Elijah and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The river alongside the cabin was flowing really strong so we had the absolute pleasure of hearing the water flow from inside. Getting up early in the morning and sitting on the deck watching the water run by was an added pleasure. This was a surprise weekend for my husband but we both came away well rested. We will visit again. Only concern we had was a leaky faucet that eventually became a gushing flow requiring maintenance to be called out early Sunday morning. They came out really quick and resolved the issue. Overall experience was wonderful, thank you to everyone at Blue Sky Cabins.

Blue Sky and their staff were excellent. The cabin we rented is called Amazing Sunset. The view was unique and the sunsets beautiful. We experienced a few nights of a neighbors dog barking all through the night due to the owners leaving it out to wander while they were away. It was cold as well. I figured out that if I could get it to the back porch and close the door, the dog would remain quiet. Whoever attended the dog came every two days and never returned the poor thing to its screened in porch. Blue sky handled it best they could and were kind enough to refund me a night. The cabin is small and its layout not so great. The beds were hard and not comfortable except for the one downstairs. Overall not bad, the neighborhood is quiet. Would I rent it again? No

We stayed at Hide N Creek with our 2 dogs during Christmas and it was perfect! Nestled in a little valley right on the bend of a beautiful mountain brook, with plenty of land for the dogs to explore. Our dogs especially liked that it was flat and not on a busy road. The cozy cabin had a hot tub right outside the master suite and a really nice screened porch overlooking the brook. The gas fireplace kept the cabin so warm that we only had to turn on the furnace once. It had everything we needed and was super comfy. We took a few side trips to go hiking, went into Blue Ridge to eat, and just chilled out and watched movies at the cabin. It was pure bliss! We've been renting different cabins from Blue Sky for years and this was definitely one of our favorites!

My weekend at Anglers Roost on the River was fantastic!! Such a beautiful cabin with an amazing view. The cabin is very spacious (there were 15 of us) and homey. Furniture is beautiful and just adds to the experience of being in the mountains. Fully stocked kitchen came in handy for cooking meals. The hot tub was a great addition as well, definitely added to the enjoyment of our stay. I would absolutely stay at Anglers Roost on the River again!
