We are from Mount Olive NC and live very busy lives...this getaway is exactly what we needed. This place is named perfectly. What a beautiful home away from home with such beautiful scenery. We want to thank you very much for sharing your home with us. We had a great time and hope to come back again next year!
- Peggy & Kevin K., Posted: 11/20/2016
We love your cabin on the river! My husband did see the 2-foot trout you mentioned but was not lucky enough to catch him. But we did see an eagle! Two times and even got pictures. He was fishing on the river and hope he had better luck than Kevin! I hate we didnt get to enjoy the fire-pit, but did enjoy the fireplace and hot tub. We WILL be back! Thanks for sharing your home!

A great time in a terrific cabin! We enjoyed ourselves immensely, thanks to your beautiful cabin in the woods! Truly a paradise found! Thank you!

Most delightful place to visit! A paradise found was exactly what my husband and I needed. It is truly a little piece of heaven. Very quiet and cozy!! We had the time of our lives here and will definitely visit in the future. I recommend this cabin to all couples who would simply like to get away and enjoy time together! Wonderful place!!!!
- Nikki, Posted: 03/15/2017
A Paradise Found was exactly that....a paradise found. We absolutely loved every part of our stay, from the fireplace to the hot tub and to the fishing in the river. The only negative is that our trip was not long enough! We were already trying to make plans to go back on our way home from this lovely cabin.

We totally loved A Paradise Found! We got away for our 25th wedding anniversary! :) We were greatly surprised, it was private and had everything we could need! We only left 1 time to get some groceries. Perfect size, perfect sound, cozy...we just loved everything about it and will certainly be going back!
- Sara, Posted: 04/18/2017
Paradise found was absolutely amazing! The river is so relaxing and the home is private and cozy. Our dogs loved walking down to the river and sitting out on the screen porch. We cant wait to go back!
The cottage would be a nice place to relax and to enjoy nature during any season. The kitchen has good appliance, the chimney and the fire pit are nice and so is the hot tub inside the enclosed porch. The mattresses are in good condition, and there is good water pressure for the showers. We particularly enjoyed the evening lighting in the living area and in the master bed room. Very warm and cozy. We were surprised and loved the blue starlights in the trees at night time as well. We did not have a chance to explore the river but it is definitely a good place for fly fishing or to soak your feet. We had a chance to meet the owner of the cottage and he is very nice and so are the representatives of the Blue Ridge Mountain Rental. One thing to be aware though is that the road leading to the cottage is not paved so dont drive any sissy car on it. Overall, we would highly recommend this cottage for rental.

What a spectacular retreat weekend. We caught several fish, the dogs frolicked and we relaxed. Thank you. We will certainly will be back.

A Paradise Found is the perfect name for this lovely cabin because it is truly just that! We enjoyed coffee by the fireplace, evenings at the fire pit, relaxing in the hot tub overlooking the Watauga River, and cooking in the well-stocked kitchen. The feel of being secluded, yet convenient to everything. We've already booked our next stay. Thank you for creating a perfect getaway for us!
- Gregg, Posted: 02/02/2018
These folks are exceptional! From quick, easy, and helpful communication, to ease and cheerfulness at check-in and check-out, not to mention the well managed and beautiful properties...we had an amazing time with our choice of getaway rental with Blue Ridge Rentals. You will be very happy!
- Jaime, Posted: 02/05/2018
I contacted this company on a fluke for a last minute (and much needed) getaway. I spoke with 4 different staff members during the whole process and found each one of them personable, helpful, and accommodating. This was my first experience with this company, and it was highly favorable!
- Michael, Posted: 02/07/2018
Stay was great. Cabin was awesome...especially the great fireplace and hot tub. Would certainly consider doing the same cabin some time next year.
- Randy & Anne, Posted: 03/12/2018
A Paradise Found has become our favorite getaway! The sound of the Watauga River provides soothing sounds and we are drawn back to this special place again and again. This time a beautiful snow fall blanketed the hemlock and rhododendron, but when we return in May it will be a different place, yet still have the same great energy. We love this wonderful retreat!
- Paul, Posted: 04/11/2018
Our stay was excellent!
- Anne, Posted: 05/23/2018
We had a fabulous time! We always do!
- Brittnee, Posted: 06/12/2018
Easy. All questions answered. Very friendly. Cabin we stayed in was clean and very nice. That's about all you can ask for.
- Carl, Posted: 06/18/2018
This was our second stay with blue ridge and as always it was great!! The people there are reactive and care about there customers. The owner of the property (Kent) was available and caring about his renters concerns. We are very happy with our stay and will repeat as often as we can!!
- Lisa, Posted: 07/02/2018
Our entire experience was wonderful, from reserving to directions to the excellence of the place we stayed. We would rent through Blue Ridge again!
- Diane, Posted: 08/07/2018
Thank you so much! We had an awesome time. The house was great! Everything was clean and ready when we arrived. The river was beautiful the house was super comfortable, the kitchen adequately supplied, the beds were great and we all enjoyed the hot tub on those cool rainy days.
- Kelly, Posted: 10/11/2018
We will definitely be back to this amazing property, "Paradise Found." I could lose weeks at a time just sitting on the porch, listening to the creek.
- Andrew, Posted: 10/25/2018
This is the the 3rd home we've rented through Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals. The staff is great to work with. The home was clean, well furnished and comfortable for our family. We enjoyed our getaway and will work with Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals again on our next high country vacation!
- Shannon, Posted: 11/08/2018
My family and I stayed at Paradise Found. It was the absolute best place we had ever stayed. We opted out of any site seeing once we were in the cabin...there could not have been a prettier site any place other than where we were. I was almost certain that when it was time to leave I would have to drag my husband kicking and screaming out of our cabin. :)
- Charles, Posted: 11/21/2018
A Paradise Found was the perfect mountain get-away that we were looking for! Situated close to Boone, this cabin offered convenience while not sacrificing on the mountain appeal that we really wanted for our visit. We plan to return in the future. Absolutely beautiful property!
- Kerry, Posted: 04/02/2019
Great service and communication before and after the rental.
- Jennifer, Posted: 06/18/2019
The river alone is worth the stay! We arrived at night so we couldn't see it, but as soon as we got out of the vehicle and heard the roaring waters we were so excited. The first morning we sat on the porch and just watched and listened to the water. Every day we went down and explored the river and our kids kept asking for more river time. We used the fire pit and the fireplace with ease. The highway is just on the other side of the river, so you do see and hear the occasional vehicle. The water pretty well drowns out the noise with the exception of 18 wheelers or motorcycles. I imagine in the colder months, when the leaves are gone, you'll see more of the highway. Regardless of that, we will absolutely be returning in the future!

This was my 4th visit to A Paradise Found. Honestly I think everyone should add this place on their bucket list. If you enjoy solitude, outdoors, streams, wildlife and nature then this is the place to come. My husband and I take our 2 dogs and I think the dogs love it as much as we do.The house is so dog friendly with gates securing the large outside deck, a screened in cozy porch with rockers and table and chairs for dining outside. While outside you can enjoy the creek with roaring rapids and plenty of fish to catch/ release. If you are lucky you will see plenty of cute little critters hanging out by the rocks and rapids. Although this is your average looking mountain cabin, the inside is decorated with history and charm, yet so inviting and cozy. Convenient to plenty of shopping, dining, hiking, exploring etc..I have and will continue to always book with Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals. Best customer service experience I have ever had with rental companies.They go the extra mile to make sure from beginning to end you feel at ease with the process. During our stays they always reach out to see if we are ok and to make sure we have all we need! This place is one of my favorite vacation spots of all times. I am positive you would feel the same way once you have stayed. I will mention the site mentions it's a 1 bedroom and it's not. There is a bedroom and bathroom upstairs and a beautiful bedroom and bath downstairs. I have rented the cabin in winter, spring, summer and fall. I enjoyed them all so much it would be to hard to say which time to go! Take a chance and give them a try you will have no regrets and you will certainly be back! I don't actually like to review this place because it is my little private getaway but, the owner and Blue Ridge Rentals are worthy of the praising. Hope this helps you consider your next mountain getaway. Thank you !!

The river and this home are the perfect remedy from the heat and traffic we have in Destin Fl during the Summer. The owner is a great host and we truly loved feeding the trout. Greg & Bebe Conant
- Ginny, Posted: 09/12/2019
This property is beautiful inside and out! We enjoyed our stay. The river is mesmerizing. Perfect place to rest and unwind!
- Kristian, Posted: 11/20/2019
Paradise Found is a lovely home. It's a wonderful place to watch the river, have a fire and completely relax. The customer service from Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals was spectacular. This is one of our new favorite spots and we will visit again!
- Ramon, Posted: 01/06/2020
Had a great experience at the Paradise Found cabin along the Watauga River. Booking was easy and received constant communications from BlueRidge Rental Company management regarding the property and reservations. Cabin and fly fishing and snow tubing was great. Would definitely stay again. Thanks
- Gregg, Posted: 01/20/2020
Our second visit to A Paradise Found and it was as delightful (if not more!) than our first stay. And the check in/check out process with Blue Ridge is now more simplified and things couldn't have been more convenient.
I've forwarded the link to Blue Ridge's website to so many friends now, I want to share this excellent experience with as many people as i can.
Everything's TOP NOTCH, you guys. Thanks a bunch for all you do, to make our stay so wonderful!
- Paul, Posted: 01/29/2020
Relaxing and quiet
- Dale, Posted: 02/12/2020
The photos don't do the place justice. It's wonderful. Easy check in and out. Great communication and a very convenient spot not to far from the best town in NC. We will definitely be back.
- Dale, Posted: 02/18/2020
Perfect place for a getaway. All we could hear was the sound of the rive and the crackling of the fire. Very easy check-in and checkout. Great communication. The cabin was very well stocked with all you need.
- Anne, Posted: 02/26/2020
Our stay at Paradise Found was fabulous as always!
- Amy, Posted: 03/20/2020
Wonderful experience and very clean.
- Rich, Posted: 03/23/2020
Perfect size cabin for a couple or small family. Set right on the Watuga River, full kitchen, the Keurig and Washer/dryer is a bonus. Hot tub filled hot water and ready to go on arrival. Will stay here again!
- Stephanie, Posted: 06/16/2020
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the mountains! Getting to our cabin and checking in could not have been easier, thanks to Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals. The place was described perfectly and we felt well taken care of, should any needs arise. We were able to begin our family fun immediately and no time was wasted.
- Roy, Posted: 07/13/2020
Wonderful vacation. It was amazing. The most relaxation and fun my family has had in a long time. Looking forward to another stay.
- Keith, Posted: 07/29/2020
Great location and right on the river. We will be back for sure.
- Keith, Posted: 08/07/2020
Paradise found is a great place for a family of 4. We had a great time and the cabin could not be closer to the river. Wow i wish i could give it 10 stars.
- Brent, Posted: 08/31/2020
This is one of the better and more unique properties in the High Country. Very nice and very peaceful. It sits right on top of the (quite peacefully loud) Watauga River and you will never want to leave the porch overlooking the water. We recommended it to all our family and friends. Time will fly by at this place so get it for at least 4 nights.
- Leslie, Posted: 09/10/2020
Our family had an amazing vacation! The cabin was so cute and the view of the river was amazing! Access to the river was simple and allowed us to easily take our boys to play in the water each day. The location was perfect too! Short commute to everything we did; Grandfather Mountain, Linville Caverns, Gem Mining and the original MAST general store. Don't hesitate and book today! So glad we did??
- Holly, Posted: 11/13/2020
A scenic cabin situated down a gravel road, by a beautiful river in a great location. The cabin had everything we needed, while still being a quick drive to Banner Elk, Boone, and Blowing Rock. It was wonderful sitting on the screened porch and being mesmerized by the flowing river's sight and sounds.
- Tracy, Posted: 11/23/2020
Our experience at A Paradise Found was absolutely perfect! We loved the Cabin! So clean and super cozy! We used the wood burning fireplace all three nights! The screened in porch with jacuzzi was so relaxing! My husband spent hours fly fishing! We will definitely be back!
- Sallie, Posted: 11/30/2020
We spent Thanksgiving at Paradise Found and it was one of our best holidays. The cabin was clean, quaint, well stocked and convenient to hiking and town. The view of the river from the deck and the relaxing sound was heaven. We also really enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit. Can't wait to return.
- Kristine, Posted: 12/14/2020
As many have mentioned, the cabin is even better in person!! The beautiful sound of the river, fire, hot tub and adorable cabin all made for an amazing weekend in the mountains!! We will definitely go back again!!
- Trevor, Posted: 12/14/2020
Went for 4 nights this past week with girlfriend. Property is lovely, the owner and management team were very helpful and quick with responses during our stay. This place is a great value and the view of the river is worth the stay alone. Highly recommend!
- John, Posted: 12/30/2020
Absolutely a wonderful property! Couldn't be happier with the cabin, view, amenities, and location. Highly recommend Blue Ridge Rentals and this property! Other than having to leave, we would not change a thing...
- A., Posted: 01/05/2021
View is beautiful. Even better in person. House is the perfect size for a couple! Great location to Boone and blowing rock and all the wineries. . Can't wait to return! Perfect get away for a hectic lifestyle
- Erica, Posted: 01/07/2021
This cabin was perfect for our small family. The hot tub overlooking the River, fireplace at night, cute deck were a few favorite touches. The proximity to town and surrounding destinations were a huge bonus for us. 10/10
- Amanda, Posted: 02/03/2021
If you're looking for a relaxing getaway, this is the house for you! We booked this house for our honeymoon and brought our two dogs with us. Having the river right behind the house was so nice! We spent our whole trip hiking and fishing! We definitely will be back!
- Anne, Posted: 02/26/2021
We always love coming to Paradise Found. It is the perfect place for a getaway for us. We always find it is clean and has everything we could possibly need. We return again and again.
- K., Posted: 03/02/2021
Paradise Found is a gem. The property manager and employees answered all of our questions and were super helpful. The home is right next to a river which was relaxing to listen to while on the porch or hot tub. Nice and clean and had everything we needed. We will be booking again for sure.
- A., Posted: 03/17/2021
This property was amazing. The view of the river was breath taking. It was very clean to include the hot tub. We had the most amazing time and the most of the time was just relaxing at the cabin. We would absolutely come back for another stay and have recommended to friends and family.
- AC, Posted: 03/19/2021
This was such a great trip. We loved the cabin, it was very clean, well stocked and had the most amazing view of the river.
- Austin, Posted: 04/09/2021
Awesome spot by the River. Cabin was very clean and perfect for a couple or two couples to spend a weekend at. Hot tub on a screened in porch is a nice addition.
