“Really, Really Nice”
Reviewed 16 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Clean, looks and smells new, though we knew it wasn't. The lower floor game room was popular with our teenage grandsons. The preview information gave the impression there would be golfers ruining the quiet not too far away. Actually, they were quite far away, down the winding road some distance from the cabin. Very, very quiet at night. Everything you needed was in the kitchen and the stove, fridge, microwave and coffee pot were state of the art. Plenty of very hot water.

The wireless mouse would not connect with the PC and one TV had lines running through the picture. The next day they brought a new mouse as well as an HDMI cable for the TV. All fixed!

Only complaint was bedside lighting in the master bedroom. The shades are black, as if for a seance. We couldn't read in bed for a few minutes as we like to do before turning off the lights.

Further below it asks if we would recommend the property for older travelers. Yes, as long as you can climb steps. The lower level with two bedrooms is one flight up. There are no beds on the lowest level.

Date of stay: August 2015

“No need to leave the Cabin”
Reviewed 1 February 2011 for a stay in January 2011
1
person found this review helpful

We wanted a place to stay in the mountains that looked like a cabin on the outside, but contained the amenities of a more modern home. Uncle Tom's Cabin exceeded our expections!!! The unfinished basement has lots games including ping pong, pool, basketball (carnival style), air hockey, and lots of board games. There are several large screen TV's throughout the house. We enjoyed the cabin so much that we only left the cabin to go snow tubing at Sugar Mountain which was about 15-20 minutes away, and to see "downtown" Boone. If you are looking for a place which is nicely appointed, has a open floorplan, and will keep you entertained while not exploring Boone or the surrounding areas, then this is a great place to go!!!
