Would have been a great vacation!
My best friend and I decided to rent this cabin to unplug from the world and spend time together before she moved to California. We had planned for this vacation for months. It was to be a girls week of playing board games, catching up, and hanging out.
Since both of us are somewhat directionally impaired and were talking, we had a couple of missteps getting to the cabin. However, if you follow the directions provided AND pay attention, you'll be fine.
Being from the mountains of NC, the curvy, narrow roads were familiar but could be somewhat daunting for individuals who have never driven on winding mountain roads. The cabin was cozy and access into the building was so easy. My friend has mobility issues and had no problems getting up the steps or into the cabin, even though it was raining profusely.
After settling in, we were able to spend about an hour playing cards before the remnants of hurricane Ida caused a power outage. The lack of power also affected our ability to have running water. Fortunately, we had enough daylight to be able to play cards for a couple of hours. We had enough water for a day.
We went to bed early hoping the power would be on the next day but woke to darkness. During the night, we could hear trees falling and heavy rain.
We made the difficult decision to leave less than 18 hours into our vacation. We reasoned that we could handle the lack of power, even though we lost most of our food, but needed water for our most basic needs.
We contacted our host who was very understanding. Although I won't be able to return with my friend, I hope to return and enjoy a vacation here.
