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

Our family spent Spring Break 2015 in Boone, NC. It was BETTER than any of us expected! The house was spacious and secluded enough to have our own privacy overlooking the mountains. The hot tub, pool table, flat screens, games, three levels, and stainless steel kitchen was better than any hotel. They even had seasonings in the cabinets!! Being able to have drinks by the fireplace and watch the sunset on the wrap around porch made it a memorable experience. It was well worth the drive all the way from Florida. The only regret is that we should have listened to them and NOT used the GPS to get tot he cabin. LOL...We're planning to return in June!

A Positive Outlook was a fantastic cabin for our family! The cabin was even better than we imagined! It was beautifully furnished, well stocked and had great views. We also enjoyed the wonderful town of Boone! We wished we could have stayed longer and explored more of the area, returning to the comforts of A Positive Outlook!!

The cabin was a perfect setup for a large family. 8 adults and plenty of room. The house was very clean. Wood burning fireplace upstairs and gas downstairs. Wonderful for a cold winters night! Hot tub was nice. Loved the large dining table. We'll definitely come back!!

We stayed in the cabin “A Positive Outlook” this past weekend and it was absolutely amazing! The staff were very helpful and friendly. The cabin was gorgeous! It provided everything we needed along with extras! The view was great, the pool table and hot tub were a big hit! We enjoyed our stay and didn't want to leave! We will definitely be back next year!

Great house! There were 10 in my party staying at the house and we had plenty of room. There was plenty of firewood and the Hot tub as awesome! We will rent again.

Beautiful Location! We can't wait to return to this cabin. We stayed at A Positive Outlook, and it was more than we could have imagined. We were very pleased with the amenities at this location, not to mention the location is absolutely beautiful. The realty company is very polite and helpful. When we arrived, I didn't know how to turn on the downstairs gas logs. I called and they walked me through it. Turned out to be simple, but they were patient and helpful. The location is close to town, and several great attractions for all ages! We had a blast! Highly Recommend this company and this cabin!

We are a group of adult women who enjoy a week of hiking and kayaking each year. This year we enjoyed your home in Vilas, NC. It was convenient to the area we wanted to visit and the home met all of our needs.
- Linda, Posted: 08/06/2018
The house was in a great location and perfect for our 3 families. We all had our own space, as there are 3 floors. Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals made sure that everything was perfect, even down to giving us detour information because of construction on the way to the cabin. I woill definitely use them again the next time we rent a cabin in the area.
- Lynda, Posted: 10/16/2018
Our stay at Positive Outlook was wonderful! We loved the cabin and it fit our needs perfectly, the location is great and the view was amazing even with leaves on the trees, and it was very clean. I really appreciated the framed directions for the TV and gas fire place – those alleviated all the problems we normally experience in a new place. That may be a small thing but it was a nice touch. We had such a nice time and no one wanted to leave. This was probably the most well-appointed kitchen of any house we've ever rented. The beds were comfy, decking is great, the outside seating was perfect, the hot tub was amazing and we liked its location much better than the hot tub at Uncle John's from last year. The basement was awesome with the bar, barstools, and small table, and we spent many hours at the pool table.
We will definitely be back to A Positive Outlook next fall. Thanks.

This was our 4th time using Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals and it has always been a pleasure to work with them. Very responsive to any questions I had and always so friendly and helpful. This year we chose A Positive Outlook and it was a very nice, clean cabin and met our needs perfectly. The outside spaces are amazing, the view is quite nice, and the hot tub was much appreciated. We spent hours in the well-appointed basement playing pool. Very nice area with a bar and plenty of seating, gas fireplace and a larger TV. The kitchen was well equipped, including a great waffle maker, and had more dishes than our party of 6 could use. Lots of personal spaces for reading and puzzles too. It was exactly as described and the pictures are spot on. Very convenient to App State, Blowing Rock and Grandfather Mountain. We will definitely stay here again.

Great cabin, enjoyed our days there very much. Have rented A Positive Outlook for three years now, we always have a good time.

Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals is a wonderful group to work with! They make the entire process from booking through your stay seamless! They were very helpful in finding a home to suit our needs for my son's graduation weekend and we could not have been more pleased with our accommodations!
- Mitch, Posted: 09/10/2019
Had a great time at this cabin. You can't beat being 15 minutes from Boone and 20 minutes from Banner elk
- Heather, Posted: 11/07/2019
Perfect weekend and super close to university!
- Jennifer, Posted: 11/18/2019
Would rent from them again. No issues at all. The cabin was perfect for our family getaway!
- Julie, Posted: 01/04/2020
Blue Ridge Rentals really make your experience as enjoyable as possible! Very helpful with any request!
- Patrick, Posted: 01/29/2020
We absolutely loved this property! It was more than we could've hoped for. We came up for a ski weekend that was pretty rainy the first day, so we stayed in the majority of the first day. The house was the perfect size. Everyone had enough room to spend time together, but also able to have our own space. Could not recommend this place enough
- WoodsOfOlde, Posted: 02/11/2020
Perfect as always!
- Kelly, Posted: 02/19/2020
So well stocked! We were blown away by the fact that there was already “extra” stuff there (think tp, trash bags, etc)! We all had a blast, kids, parents, and pups! Communication was amazing between the company and myself. Thanks Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals!
- Takisha, Posted: 06/03/2020
Had a wonderful time at A Positive Outlook with my husband. He enjoyed the views and the living space.
- Megan, Posted: 06/29/2020
Exactly what we needed during this time. Loved all the little extras the owners had there. The games, books, train set, rope climbing hill was a hit! Great communication with property manager.
- Steve, Posted: 07/20/2020
Great cabin for our family get-away. Nice size for our family of 5 - could easily have had a second group there. Great location for getting into Boone, Banner Elk, etc. Clean, good communication with manager. No complaints. Would stay here again!
- Gerald, Posted: 07/21/2020
We had plenty of room to spread out with 3 small children. Loved the porch area with the swing, rocking chairs and picnic table. The kitchen had plenty of dishes and was well supplied.
- Dapilinu, Posted: 07/31/2020
This was our first time in a cabin and it was nothing short of Amazing. The accommodations were beautiful for the 6 children and 5 adults. Very clean property that had all the amenities you could ask for a family of our size.
- Diane, Posted: 09/25/2020
We really enjoyed our stay and accommodations - would like to come back.
- Kat and Max, Posted: 10/27/2020
Our group enjoyed this cabin very much. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks!

Large beautiful clean cabin in great location for snow tubing!
- Sonya, Posted: 01/29/2021
This was our second stay at this house. We love it. Very clean and has everything you need for a great stay. Hot tub was very nice. Love the fire place and love the big kitchen. A lot of room for the whole family.
- Steven, Posted: 02/26/2021
The cabin was perfect. We had an amazing time enjoying time with family. The pool table was great. The cabin had everything we needed and was in a perfect location.
- Lindsey, Posted: 03/08/2021
This place was so amazing! It was so sweet the attention to detail that was paid to even the smallest things from how to use the hot tub, instructions for every tv, labeled light switches and fans, extra towels downstairs for the hot tub. So much thought and detail into every thing. I really loved all the personal touches, you can tell that the home owners really want folks to have the best time possible. We had quite a variety of age ranges and there were activities, games, and dvds for the toddlers all the way through tweens. Such a lovely place! Thank you for the hospitality!
- Christian, Posted: 03/24/2021
Cabin was clean and just as described in the listing. Check-in and out were both super simple and stress free. Great proximity to ski resorts and blue ridge parkway for hiking to waterfalls and lookout points. We'd definitely stay here again!
- C.O., Posted: 03/29/2021
Property was just as described and well maintained. It was close enough to the gem mines, ski resorts, and downtown Boone. We used the hot tub almost every night and the kids loved the dirt wall next to the house with climbing ropes! Would definitely stay here again.
- Clarissa, Posted: 04/14/2021
Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals is awesome to work with and very quick to call back if you need anything or have any questions (Dan Fitzgerald). Loved the layout and roominess of this house (A Positive Outlook). The dining table was able to accommodate all 10 of us as a family to sit down together for meals. We loved that it was pet friendly and that we have a place to come back to and bring our fur babies on vacation with us. We will DEFINITELY be returning to A Positive Outlook for our future vacation stays!!
