I just wanted to let you know that we enjoyed our stay at Abundant Life cabin last week. Your cabins are beautiful! We loved having three stories so that we could spread out, and it was extremely nice to have televisions in each room. That way when someone wanted to retreat for quiet time they could watch TV in peace and quiet. Thanks again for sharing your lovely place with us. Kind regards,

My wife, daughter, sisters nieces and brother-in-law rented a large cabin for a week from Blue Ridge Mountain rentals and were extremely happy with our choice, both with the cabin and with the service. The cabin we rented (Abundant Life, a few miles outside of Boone) was beautiful, fully equipped, spacious and immaculate. Though it was located almost within walking distance of a small city (Boone, NC) it had the feeling of wilderness. It was near the top of a mountain, with breathtaking views. When I say fully equipped, I really mean it. It had a large hot tub, pool table, Foosball table, several large flat screen TVs, High Speed internet connection and even an old arcade style video machine. In short, all the comforts of home and then some. The service too was very good. Though our direct contacts with company representatives were pretty limited (one face-to-face contact upon checkout and a couple of phone conversations) we were treated with friendly professionalism on every occasion. We were provided with voluminous written information both by Email and on paper, answering just about every question we had. And the price was more than reasonable. I calculated, that with the number of people we had, we would not have been able stay in a Motel 6 on the highway for the price we paid for this rental. I have rented vacation condos and cabins from Florida to Hawaii, and this was one of the best, if not THE best run, operations I've dealt with.

My family and I traveled from S. Carolina, Georgia and New York and held our first family reunion here the weekend of 9/5-9/8 and it was awesome!!! We thoroughly enjoyed all the cabins that were rented and their amenities. They were in close proximity so it was easy for everyone to visit each other. We definitely had a great time bonding, laughing, and making everlasting memories. One of the cabins had a leak in the bathroom sink but maintenance was contacted and fixed it without hesitation. I've been to other cabins, but this was the BEST by far!!! - Shameka and the extended Griffin Family 9/5-9/8, 2014 1 Abundant Life, A Positive Outlook, Carolina Charm, and Uncle John's Cabin

We had a wonderful time spending our first Christmas in the mountains with our children, their spouses, and their children! Thirteen of us in all! Plenty of room to visit, play games, or watch TV. We especially enjoyed the hot tub and fire-pit. Everyone left wanting to do it again!

This is the 4th or 5th consecutive year we have rented from BMR and we continue to be thoroughly pleased. For our annual May trips, we have stayed at Carolina Charm, Abby's Place, and this year at 1 Abundant Life. By far, 1AL has been our favorite of these similar floor plan homes. We really liked that 1AL was higher up in elevation as it provided great vistas and was also more peaceful as it was further away from other homes. Another reason we prefer 1AL is that it was more nicely decorated and all the appliances and furniture seemed to be in newer condition. Also, we really liked the hot tub on the ground vs. on the wrap around porch in other homes. It was nice to sit there and look at the stars. The hot tub was also in better operating condition than the other rental properties as all of the jets were functional. The new deck on the ground level was also very much appreciated. Please express our thanks to the owners for making their home available through BMR. Overall, we were thoroughly pleased with 1AL and will definitely plan to rent this house again in the coming years. This house has been our favorite thus far.

Thanks again for all your assistance in booking our vacation at Abundant Life. We really enjoyed our week, and the house was a perfect set up for our family – Grandpa/Grandma and 2 daughters and their families. Our grandchildren loved looking out into the woods for bears (that we never saw) and just having lots of fun together. We took advantage of the close proximity to Boone and the park complex and the great playground. The dining room table was great as we could all eat together. The house is set up nicely to have together time, but also have alone time with the wonderful king suites. Thanks again – we look forward to another vacation in the future.

We loved our visit to Boone and particularly to 1 Abundant Life. It is a beautiful cabin home that met our needs perfectly. We had a week-long family reunion with our family from Missouri, Utah, Colorado and North Carolina. 1 Abundant Life was a perfect gathering spot. Every room was comfortable and well-appointed. We enjoyed having campfires complete with s'mores, gathering around the kitchen table playing board games and laughing, sitting on the porch rocking chairs and enjoying the views and beautiful mountain summer temperatures, and the tweens loved the kids cave game room. The property was close to area attractions and we enjoyed little adventures every day we were there--the farmers market, Hickory Ridge village, Linville Caverns, a picnic in the park, church, zip lines, Tweetsie Railroad theme park, Grandfather Mountain, a hike to Linville Falls, Mast General Store, wading in the creek at Valley Crucis park, go-carts and mini golf. Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals was a great company to work with. It was our first time renting a vacation home (in an area that we had never been to) and we were hoping that everything would work out. The website with the videos and pictures was very helpful and the house was as advertised--you really would need a 4-wheel drive to get there in the winter. :-) Everyone I spoke with or interacted with at your company was friendly and helpful and courteous. Thanks for making the rental process go so seamlessly.

Wonderful accommodation, Thank you.

Absolutely loved the location. We would love to stay at 1 Abundant Life each time we go to the mountains. We decided to leave the children behind, but our next visit, we will take the kids so they can experience what we had the joy to see. Thank you!

We love this place. It's beautiful. It's clean and equipped with almost everything. We will definitely rent again. Everything was made easy for us

Our Family vacation for Fathers Day went great at the cabin. The details were just as it was on the description for the cabin. Not far from Blowing Rock or Boone.

Very quite place on the mountain, the hole family enjoyed the stay their.
The cabin was just as advertised on BRM rentals website. Pretty views of the rolling hills.
Wasn't far from the near by towns.
Easy to get back and forth.
- Cathy, Posted: 07/17/2019
The rental house exceeded our expectations on every level! House was clean, with a well-stocked kitchen and the enough games to keep the kids busy on rainy days. We loved this place and will definitely be returning! Any questions we had were immediately addressed by a gracious and professional staff. Also, it was so conveniently located, but still gave the impression you were deep in the mountains. We cannot say enough nice things about our entire experience. Everyone loved it!
- Carla, Posted: 10/28/2019
We had a great time. The cabin was beautiful and well furnished. Everything we needed was provided. My high school girlfriends (Class of "84) go on a weekend trip every year. This was one of the best!

nice cabin in the mountains
- Dale, Posted: 07/20/2020
You will by yourself and your guests in the cool mountain air and time to sit on a delightful porch with rockers and relax!
- Emma, Posted: 09/01/2020
We are a family of 4 (2 kids) and our dog and we had a wonderful time at 1 Abundant Life. The house had more than enough space for us and plenty to keep everyone occupied or relaxing. The game room was a hit for both my boys. We enjoyed the fire pit and the hot tub after some daily outings in the area. The house is near the town of Boone and many attractions - though you will feel as if you were secluded in the mountains. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy a much needed family getaway. Many memories were made.
- Ric, Posted: 01/11/2021
Great house for families or groups with an amazing cabin vibe and plenty to be happy about!

We came with my wife's sister and brother-in-law, plus their kids, for a mountain get-away during the kids' spring break. The cabin had everything we needed, and was in a prime location, with a golf course less than 5 minutes away. Close enough to town for convenient grocery store trips, but removed enough you really experienced the tranquility of the mountain
