Cabin Getaway

Stayed 2 days ending May 2024

Great cabin, lots of amenities and very clean. Great communication with the rental company.

Thank you for leaving a review of your recent stay at El Cabitan. We look forward to having you stay with us again.

Better then the pics displayed!

Michelle S. from Royal Palm Beach, FL
Stayed 4 days ending March 2024

This place was better than we could have imagined. Breathtaking views. There was PLENTY of space for our family of 10 and the beds were comfortable and large. There were 3 tvs and a nice bar area. Check in was easy. The arcade was awesome- kids and husbands loved.
They had a fire pit area, a small climbing dome for kids and a little creek that ran through the well secluded property. We stayed March 16-21, and it was around 20 degrees with snow flurries but the tubing places had all pretty much closed for season. We went to Linville caverns, waterfall park, wilderness run alpine coaster, and elk river falls- all about an hour away.
Past reviews stated there was a pack n play for a small child, we didn’t see one.They did have a ball pit, a nugget couch, a high chair,a few extra warm clothes, a stroller and sleds downstairs.
Make sure to read trash directions! As well as look over departure checklist the day before you leave. The cabin was well stocked with essentials with the exception of coffee.
Would absolutely stay here again!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your recent stay at El Cabitan. This home offers plenty of space for large families. Most snow tubing places close the first or second weekend of March for the season. We do hope you will stay with us again.

Best Annual Family Trip!!!

This was our second year renting from Carolina Mountain Properties & Rentals and I would not want to rent from anyone else in the West Jefferson area. Everyone is their office is so helpful and friendly-best customer service ever! The property was beautiful and perfect for our family of 7. The location was close to downtown and the views from the house were gorgeous! The house was immaculate upon our arrival. We will definitely be back.

Fun getaway with friends

Anonymous from Concord, NC
Stayed 2 days ending July 2023

El Cabitan was a wonderful place to stay! It felt secluded even though it wasn't too far from all the fun things West Jefferson has to offer. The home was clean and very spacious! We loved playing the games on the bottom level, enjoyed the hot tub and fires in the firepit outside. We had dinner out on the porch one night which was amazing!!! Great views! We will definitely be back to El Cabitan!

Manager Responded on 8/8/2023

We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay in El Cabitan. While the home is near to town, it is tucked away on the mountain with privacy. We do hope you will stay with us again!

Great vacation home for multiple families!

Stayed 3 days ending July 2023

We had such a great time in West Jefferson! There were 3 families, 11 people who stayed at the house. We were all surprised how spacious it was. Honestly- the pictures do not do it justice. It was so large and family friendly! Would absolutely rent again!

A Must Mountain Retreat!

Stayed 3 days ending July 2022

We loved this property! It was well stocked and had so much room for our large family stay! The children loved the arcade games and ping pong in the basement! Hot tub was awesome! Views from the covered porches are beautiful! Fire pit made a great spot to roast marshmallows for our Samores! 10 mins to the sweet town of West Jefferson! We highly recommend!!
