Great stay!!!!

Kc T. from Laurens, SC
Stayed 4 days ending May 2024

We ha led a very pleasant stay in the house! It was perfect for our group. We had 8 adults and one child. The area was wonderful as well!!!! The rental company went above and beyond to fix any issues that we had. The water in the cottage went out the first night and they made sure to send someone out to fix it the next morning at 6:30 in the morning so it wouldn’t disrupt our plans. I was very pleased with everything!

Manager Responded on 5/14/2024

We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at Walnut Hill and appreciate you being understanding during the unforeseen water issue. So happy we could get it addressed quickly for you. We look forward to having you stay with us again.

CLOSE to Downtown- Spacious-Great Bedding-Updated!

Travis L. from Waxhaw, NC
Stayed 2 days ending February 2024

Our Family of 4 adults and 7 kiddos ages 2-17 had a fantastic stay! WE stayed to drive to Sugar to Snow tube. (1hr away) Deciding to stay last minute left us with NO other options than the dank hotels in Boone area.
WE were dissapointed we couldn't stay in a near the river cabin this trip but seriously didn't miss it a bit this property was awesome! First the decor and the furnishings were beautiful, updated and fresh. The beds( ALL) were top of the line and the sheets luxurious. The no fuss fireplace, fire pits, many decks, well stocked kitchen, plenty parking, and cleanliness of the house were all a plus! WE rented the additional Mother in Law suit- It had it all for the couple staying in our party-THE ONLY SUGGESTION TO THE PROPERTY MGR- PLEASE LIGHT THE PATHWAY from HOUSE to MIL SUITE- Dangerous at night!!!- Carry a flashlight until this is addressed!!!
The only things we were missing was a hot tub and a game table of some sort for the kids. The location to WJ was amazing only a 5 min ride in the car to Downtown. Carolina MP is a WONDERFUL business and would rent from them anytime- we are a long time customer.

Great Family Trip at Walnut Hill Estate

Allen M. from Greenville, North Carolina
Stayed 8 days ending April 2023

My family and I had a great time staying at Walnut Hill Estate over Easter in April 2023. We all enjoyed the coffee nook in the mornings and the wonderful views from the property of the mountain across the road. We had plenty of space to spread out and a nice living room and other common spaces to group up for family time too. This is our second time at Walnut Hill Estate and we can't wait to return soon. Thanks!

Our Family’s Favorite Respite

Vee B. from Summerfield, NC, US
Stayed 3 days ending August 2023

We have been fortunate enough to enjoy spending time at Walnut Hill as a family for several years- and each year it seems our time just sweetens! The house is lovely, very clean, and comfortable for our extended family of nine. We delight in the early morning backyard deer and groundhog spottings, the easy walk into town to visit the park, library, shops, and eateries, and evenings around the fire. When it comes time to leave Walnut Hill the common refrain is wondering how quickly we can return!

Manager Responded on 8/23/2023

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your most recent stay at Walnut Hill Estate. We are so happy that you and your family keep returning to this charming home that overlooks West Jefferson. We look forward to having you stay with us again very soon!

beautiful yet ccnvenient mountain getaway

Laurie M. from Raleigh, NC, US
Stayed 4 days ending June 2023

this cute beautiful home was a great place to land during our son's wedding weekend. Super convenient location - We enjoyed sitting by the fire pit one night and spent many mornings, drinking coffee on the patio/swing. Location was perfect- Tucked in so close to town- up the winding driveway you hardly knew you were seconds from town -We also enjoyed walking to get coffee... I love the character and comfortable decor. It really felt like a home away from home not a rental home.
and the flowers on the property were beautiful!

Manager Responded on 6/14/2023

We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Walnut Hill Estate and that it was a "great place to land" during your son's wedding weekend. Walnut Hill is hidden away from town, but it is walking distance to town. We hope you stay with us again.

Beautiful Home in the Heart of West Jefferson for Multi family

Anonymous from New Kent, VA
Stayed 2 days ending May 2022

The house was perfect for our multi family needs. This home was very clean. It was so roomy and beautifully decorated and we loved all the little details to make it a special stay. We can't not say enough to express our thanks to the wonderful staff in the booking process. We were here due to a family members funeral and they were extremely compassionate with our reservation and easy to communicate with. We even found out that this house used to belong to our Uncles married into family member, so neat! We were able to enjoy the nice firepit as well. I appreciate all the help and info from Jennifer, Missy, and Jeanie. I recommend that even if you don't rent this house to use this company for your rental needs!

Manager Responded on 5/4/2022

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your stay. We are sad that it was for the funeral and hope you can come back for a more joyful occasion.
