Grand Opening. Joyous Day! What a fabulous retreat.
Kathryn Arnett, Atlanta, GA

Much love and attention was put into these cottages for all to enjoy. Hopefully, all others after us will have a memorable experience also.
John Mellon, Atlanta, GA

We came to celebrate our anniversary and it was great. The decorations are wonderful and the quality apparent.
Tony Austin, Lake Toxaway, NC

We also celebrated our anniversary on our way to pick Laura up from camp. You have done a wonderful job up here.

We had a wonderful weekend! Everything was perfect and we loved it. Thank you for being part of our memories.

We had a wonderful family weekend. The cabin was perfect for us and our two girls. We hope to come back soon.

What a great cabin! It made our family reunion enjoyable. This place is truly a piece of heaven on earth. We will cherish our memories here. We can't wait to come back! Thank you.
The Stitt family, Dana, Terry, Dawn, Brian, Greg & Joy, Wellington, FL

We found Deer Lodge so creative and artistic, it was a great joy for seeing and meeting with some of our family from Atlanta, Chicago and Phoenix. I'm sure we'll be back.
McCullough family, Lockport, IL

The Lempisis/Schaeffer and Armenakis's families thoroughly enjoyed your deer cabin. We loved the artistic qualities and charming personality that you created in all of the rooms. I especially loved the exterior wooden porch rails. They are wonderful. We are from Charleston, S.C. and visit the mountains often. From my family to yours, thank you for sharing your special home with us. P.S. It was my son's 8th birthday. The Armenakis group is from NY City and this is just what we were looking for. We love the attention to every detail, furniture, tables, chairs, mirrors etc. for the kids, direct TV. Thanks for a special experience.
Lempesis/Schaeffer and Armenakis' families, New York, NY

The DaSilva family from Charleston, S.C. had a wonderful relaxing weekend despite the constant rain. We hope to come to the Deer Lodge again for another much needed rest! Thank you!
The DaSilva family, Swannanoa, NC

Great time had by all. Wonderful accommodations - only regret is that we could not stay longer!
Denise Cohen, Mary Portman, Cheryl Phillips, Linda Wilcox and Candy Nipper, Atlanta, GA

What a glorious spot. Everything is perfect. Deer Lodge is a wonderful place for a great relaxing vacation.
Sally & Jim Morgens, Atlanta, GA

This is a great mountain cabin. The peace and quiet is wonderful. We can tell a lot of thought and consideration was given to comfort as well as beauty. All of the small things are noticed, such as plush towels and washcloths, comfortable furniture, coffee for the coffee maker. Very nice!
Oscar & Joan Norris

The weekend turned out better than anyone of us could imagine! Made to order. Thanks for sharing your imagination and talents. We are all impressed.
Susan Clark, Marietta, GA

Thank you for a wonderful visit to the mountains! Our family enjoyed the October fall setting. Deer Lodge will always be dear to our hearts.
Jane Menne and family

This is what life is all about.Gorgeous weather, blue sky, fall colors, millions of stars, waterfalls, hike, great dining, fun, talks... Thanks for letting us enjoy the beauty of the Blue Ridge in fall of 2001.
Gibbons Family, Cary, NC

You all have done a wonderful job making your cabin a complete getaway! All the comforts of home without the hustle and bustle. We are truly sad to leave this mountain paradise! P.S. We will come back!
The Haislips, Charlotte, NC

What a great retreat you have created. Enjoyed our stay and we're ready to move in permanently! Thanks for sharing this with the world!
The Bushes & Winsbergs, Atlanta, GA

Four of us from New Orleans area really loved the lodge! It's obvious a lot of thought and creativity went into the décor. No need to leave the lodge - even though we did a lot of "touring and visiting". Each time of the day has its' own specialty about it. The views, the little walks, even the weather was spectacular for us. We are planning our next trip here with our friends.
Bob & Barbara Richard- Wesley & Morgan Swanford, Metairie, LA

Perfect place if you are searching for "privacy, rest and relaxation".
The Pelfreys, Chattanooga, TN

We have been very happy with this charming retreat. We look forward to coming back and recommending it to others!
The Bagwells, Montgomery, AL

This is the perfect place for friends to get together and have their own cabins but a central place to hang out. The Deer Lodge is great! We had a wonderful time. only wish for two things: snow and a Jacuzzi.
Brian & Jessie O'Neil, Atlanta, GA

This is a very beautiful and cozy cabin. We are all very pleased and we hope that everyone can take good care of the cabin while vacationing so that we can all enjoy this wonderful cabin for many many years! Hope we can come back very soon! Thank you for everything.
The Avarez & Suarez Family, Tampa, FL


This was a wonderful place to be able to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. As your "first paying customers", we have broken in the Fox Hole cottage and hope we have left what will remain a peaceful retreat for others. You have succeeded in combining luxury with nature's surroundings at its best. We surely look forward to returning, and enjoy the serenity you have provided.
Dan & Kippy Kingston - Newberry, SC

We were visiting Grandma & Grandpa from California. Your cabins are beautiful! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It looks like so much love and care went into decorating each of the cabins. We saw many beautiful sites including Gorges State Park and a few nearby waterfalls. We had a relaxing and adventurous time and hope to come back.
Erin, Chad & Tess Cunningham, Indian Trails, NC

The Fox Hole was just what we were looking for. The hospitality was exceptional. It is hard to believe that these cabins were built before the property was purchased and remodeled, as each piece in each room is a perfect fit. Exquisite taste. The website was a good indicator of what to expect here - first class.
Stephanie, Michael & Brooke Sullivan, Elm City, NC

We felt very much at home in the cabin. It was delightful. Hope to come back to Seven Foxes no later than next year and bring some extended family with us to fill another cabin. We will put a link to the Seven Foxes web sight, which is outstanding, to our web sight. You and your partner have great taste and talent in outfitting the cabins. Everything was very impressive. Take care and enjoy your beautiful spot at Lake Toxaway. What a dream.

This is our last night of a four-day vacation in the mountains. It is so cozy and romantic. I loved the décor and my husband said you could see a "woman's touch" throughout. We enjoyed the miniature horses and goats. We were feeding them apples today. We have actually relaxed, which is unusual for us with our busy schedules.
Bill & Brenda Shattuck, Chapin, SC

A wonderful place for our honeymoon! We were more than pleasantly surprised on our arrival and have enjoyed our stay tremendously. Just a little different than Miami Beach and kind of reminiscent of the early seventies on Hilton Head, quiet peaceful, beautiful and friendly. We will be back.
Miles & Susie Altman, Miami, FL

What a lovely cabin! We really enjoyed our one night stay at Fox Hole and only regret we're not staying longer. We can't wait to come back again soon! Good luck with the cabins
Sarah & Colby, Chattanooga, TN

We had a great time! Thanks for all of the hospitality. We definitely are coming back again!
William & Anne Ratteree, Clemenson, SC

What a terrific change from the quick pace of Atlanta. We will definitely come back to the Fox Hole when we can have a longer stay - So peaceful and relaxing - easy to feel at home.
Rebecca & Scott Harrison, Atlanta, GA

What a great Thanksgiving we had here. It's back to Atlanta now, but we will definitely return.
Steve & Debbie Hoecker, Duluth, GA


We spent a good night! Edward Knapp had sweet dreams.
Spring Knapp, Sylva, NC

Spent a wonderful weekend at the Seven Foxes; quiet and beautiful.
Bob Harwell, Atlanta, GA

Thank you for a wonderful weekend. It was a nice change of scenery.
Wesley & Jimmy Fay, Columbus, GA

We enjoyed our quick vacation at your lodge. We love the décor! The bear accessories are adorable! Thanks!
The Anderson Family, Mobile, AL

We hate to leave the Bear Cave. It is such a cute cabin. The Hummingbirds outside were fun to watch. After three days of hiking to the beautiful waterfalls in the area, the comfy red couch served us well for our weary legs. One more note - thanks for putting the waterfall book in the cabin. It was very useful. Hope to be back.
Mitch & Alesia Bellek, Palm Beach Gardens, FL

Bear Cave has something for everyone - location, décor, nature, and wild horses on the loose.We'll be sure to tell everyone so they can come. We loved being here. I wish we had rhododendrons like this in our woods.
Ginny & Tom McNally, Norcross, GA

Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality! The Bear Cave has served its purpose. A great place for the kids!!!! You have a wonderful place here - we will be back.
The Middleton's & The Bullocks, Denver, CO & Pleasant Garden, NC

We had a wonderful time and loved the décor! It is almost like the fairy tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We will definitely recommend it to friends and family in South Africa and U.S. Baie dankie (Afrikaans for "Thank You")
Jolandi, Heinrich, Johann & Carlien Schulz, Dunwoody, GA

We spent two wonderful nights here, and only regret that we didn't reserve it for three nights. Bear Cave is clean, comfortable, cozy and very tranquil. We awakened on Saturday to the sound of rain, and it was so soothing that we didn't care about the weather. We'll be back! Labor Day weekend
Larry & Jane Ward, Charlotte, NC

The time spent was a blessing. Every step I took was with God! The fresh air, clean water and trees placed on the side of the mountain, took me to a pure, comfortable state of mind. I have accomplished two things - Unity and love with my people and Friends!
Shakir McDowell, Charlotte, NC

I've spent the last 48 hours in a very peaceful place. It is wonderful here. We came to do a photo shoot here at the waterfalls. If you are ready this, you may not know me now but you will.

Had a great time. Cottage was just fine and the area was very good for hiking and site seeing. We have seen many waterfalls.
Harry & Janet O'Dell, Brooksville, FL & Larry, Kathy, Dave and Lucy, Brunswick, GA

Last week we reserved "The Squirrel Nest" for friends and for two nights we ended up watching videos and munching popcorn. Once our friends went back to Florida, we actually missed coming back to the "Foxes" at night. Tonight we rented "The Bear Cave" for my mom and dad (his birthday is today) but at the last minute, they decided to stay in Green Mountain. and my husband and I decided to keep the reservation and enjoy it ourselves.we plan on coming back during the winter with snow falling and fireplace. Can't wait!
Paul & Barbara Twing, Lake City, FL

I had a happy Thanksgiving week at Toxaway with Marilyn, Howard and family. Enjoyed the peace and solitude. Mother nature can be a wonderful person if you don't cross her. Right now she is magnificent. I had a restful week and left to go back to Detroit and the snow!!
Dick Kelley, Detroit, MI

We have enjoyed a beautiful, lovely time here at the Bear cabin for the past three days - soaking up the secluded atmosphere of the great outdoors, site seeing the waterfalls and other nearby areas and mountainside. Even though we didn't see any animals besides the goats and ponies next to us, they were fun to mingle with in the morning. Our Christmas morning was one I'll never forget - warm, cozy, and peaceful - the nicest Christmas that I have ever had. Merry Christmas to all of you and thanks for the wonderful stay.
The Wisley Family, Granite City, IL

We've spent a few relaxing days up here and it's been great. We went to see one waterfall today and we're going to see three more tomorrow. The cabin is so quaint and comfortable. I'm so disappointed about leaving tomorrow. I hope to definitely come back soon.
Blaire Earhart, Charlotte, NC

Hi, my name is Julie and this is not my first visit to Brevard but the best by far. My mother is very funny about hotel beds so she always takes a blanket to put over the sheets. I called her about how clean the beds were and she wouldn't need a blanket. She was pleased. Thanks for the visit.
Julie Cannon, Charlotte, NC



Grand opening festivities were great! Best of luck. Squirrel Nest is cozy. We'll be back.
Aida & Allan Flamm, Atlanta, GA

Had a great time! Glad we found you! We will definitely be back. Loved the fireflies even the one that lit on mom's toothbrush. The horses and goats were friendly and escape artists. We found a squirrel magnet to put on the fridge. Loved it and will spread the word.
The Mathis', New Orleans, LA

We all really enjoyed our stay. We found the the cabins to be very charming. The decorating was superb, both sophisticated and whimsical. We loved the friendly ponies and goats. We had a wonderful time exploring the beautiful wilderness in the area. We visited the Pisgah National Forest, Whitewater Falls and Gorges State Park. We had a great time and will most likely visit again.
The Jordahl Family, Charlotte, NC

We had a wonderful time! I fell in love with the cozy cottages! We are already planning on asking some friends back at another time! Our children Morgan and Austin had fun "exploring" around the cabins - their first cabin experience. I gave them our walkie-talkies and they had a blast! We cooked out one night, which was very relaxing. We can't wait to come back!
Kip, Cathy, Morgan & Austin, Birmingham, AL

Had a great time in the adorable Squirrel Nest! Unfortunately no white squirrels crossed our path during our stay - maybe next time, as we are sure to return. You've done a wonderful job here. We'll spread the word! Feels like home away from home with much more peace and tranquility. Thanks!
Susan, Kelley, Max & Natalie, Atlanta, GA & Marilyn & Myrna, Charlotte, NC

We had a very nice time staying here. Took a day to hike the waterfalls. Wow! We have decided there are many more falls to visit and we will be returning as soon as we can. Thanks! No white squirrel sighting for me but Randy did have the pleasure of seeing one - better luck next time for me!
Patty & Randy Decos, Sarasota, FL

We have enjoyed our stay even though it has rained the whole time. The mountains are so beautiful with the fall colors. We want to thank our good friends Paul and Barbara for showing us around. We will be back next spring.
Mary, Angie & Sean, Lake City, FL

How nice to stay in a unique and cozy cabin while spending Thanksgiving with family. We're looking forward to hiking and discovering more about this beautiful area!
Richard Reina & Linda Brennan, Tampa, FL

Thank you very much - everything was great! We enjoyed the stories about the belongings of the "nest".
Ali, Mark, Kellie & Dave Lyerla, Atlanta, GA


Dear Marilyn & Sandra, You have thought of everything to make our weekend memorable. A coffee maker with coffee and a hair dryer. Visiting with Cameron and Howard started our day. Loads of good luck.
Edythe & Larry Hecht, Atlanta, GA

What a truly gorgeous place to relax! You all have done a beautiful job of decorating. Cliff was so helpful and his restaurant was great! We will be back soon! Thanks,
Caroline Decosimo, Lookout Mountain, TN

This is a wonderful cabin. Our daughter loves the loft. We could hardly get her down. Can't wait to return.
Craig & Debra White, Greenwood, SC

Wonderful four days for our family reunion!
George & Rose Templin, Monroeville, AL

Super! Cozy and quaint, we'll be back for more soon. Thanks!
The Colliers, Lakeland, FL

Cute and cozy place. We enjoyed our stay.
The Davies & The Fuquas, Charlotte, NC

We enjoyed our Raccoon cabin a lot. The view was great and the kids loved the animals. We will definitely be back for another vacation. Thanks, Cliff for your hospitality. Love,
The Rutherfords, Hilton Head, SC

What a wonderful getaway! My husband is an alumni of Brevard College. We came back to visit for homecoming. We felt so at home here in Raccoon cabin that it was hard to leave. Our one-year-old daughter enjoyed the animals. Very well done!
Anthony & Sheri Buckner & Chloe - Section, AL

We all enjoyed our visit to "Seven Foxes"! Our boys loved the animals and playhouse.
Jerry, Pam, Nicholas & Patrick Sullivan - Lawrenceville, GA

We had such a wonderful stay! Our two year old had a blast with everything. Thank you!
David Kristy & Robby Holmes, Port Charlotte, FL

Happy Halloween to you! Happy anniversary to us. We had an incredible time in this wonderfully enchanting place. We had the time of our life. We never have seen such a beautiful place. My wife and I shared an incredible and indescribable special anniversary at the "Seven Foxes".

It was our first vacation together. The Raccoon Loft made it perfect and we will always remember it! Hopefully we'll return soon.
Kelli & Mark Romagos, West Palm Beach, FL

We had a wonderful time and it was a great place to ring in the New Year with friends!
