Crazy Family Members

Joy M. from Bear Creek, NC, US
Stayed 2 days ending April 2024

House was great. Clean, neat, needs a recliner or 2. Didn't like the way the steps to the 2nd floor bedroom came into my room but all was well. Coffee Keurig was a challenge but it was all good. Family was a pain in the butt big time. Was so glad to leave them

Thank you for leaving a review of your recent stay at Mountain Jewel. This is a remodeled farmhouse so the layout can be a little tricky. We do hope you will stay with us again.

cute cottage

Stayed 4 days ending November 2023

We enjoyed our stay at Mountain Jewel; however, the description of the property should disclose that much of the home includes some close to original structures as to not take visitors off guard. Slanting floors were a surprise, although we got used to the charm of them. Cutlery was minimal and kitchen could use a better variety of pots and pans. Window treatments need to provide more privacy. No coffee table...Overall, we had a wonderful time, as we always do in Jefferson/West Jefferson, just some suggestions for future tenants.

Manager Responded on 12/28/2023

Thank you for leaving a review of Mountain Jewel. This is a renovated farmhouse that does have some of the original floors and they due to slant. We do hope you stay with us again soon.

Wonderful weekend getaway

My daughter and I spent the weekend at this wonderful home. It has privacy, a beautiful creek that runs through it, and ample room for a fun game of hide and seek inside or out!

Thank you for leaving a review of your stay at Mountain Jewel. This home is quaint farmhouse close to town but with a wonderful creek and outdoor space.

Mt Jewel- July 2023

LISA H. from bel air, MD, US
Stayed 3 days ending July 2023

Worked great for our family. Property was very clean, linens were in excellent condition. Kitchen was stocked with what we required. We were in town for a family reunion that was being held at Jefferson Landing and this location was ideal. Getting to the upstairs was awkward as you have to go thru a bedroom.
Only issue was the A/C went up the 2nd day and never came back on. The property mgr was helpful with trying to resolve, but we were unable to be there when the repair person might have been able to come so we persevered without.

Manager Responded on 7/19/2023

thank you for leaving a review of your recent stay at Mountain Jewel. The AC issue has been fixed; we do wish it could have been addressed during your stay. The home is a remodeled farmhouse that had an addition added on to during its history. The only access to the upstairs twin bedroom is through one of the bedrooms. This home is in a great location just across the road and a short drive from Jefferson Landing. We do hope you stay with us again.

NC Trip 2021

Ryan B. from Cedar Springs, MI
Stayed 3 days ending December 2021

We were blessed with 70 degree days and no rain for our entire 3 day stay. That was unexpected. We had a great time and the farmhouse accommodated the 6 of us just fine. Mind you we have 4 boys, 3 of which are 6'2" and above. The sleeping situation worked out perfect. The House was delightful, and it served its purpose of providing a place to come back to after exploring the trails in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The property was clean and well maintained. The only issue we had was that there were not many restaurants available during our stay. Boone is 40 min away but they have a mask mandate which we didn't want to deal with. We cooked our meals at the house and got to know the people at the Food Lion pretty well. Southern hospitality is a real thing. I would recommend this property for sure.

Great location and convenient to town and other activities. Nice, clean and beautiful property. We would suggest the addition of a back deck so you could enjoy the yard and stream. Rain had kept the yard from mowing, but we thought that would be nice.

Manager Responded on 6/27/2022

We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Mountain Jewel. The owner is working to make upgrades and a deck may be in the plans. We look forward to having you stay with us again.
