    Definitely a great cozy little cabin perfect for a small to medium sized crew. Tucked away out of town but close enough to everything to be convenient. Would definitely recommend to someone looking for a rustic place this size.
  2. 5/5

    Had a GREAT time this past weekend staying at Jacob's Roost for the Bluegrass Festival. Three couples shared the cabin containing 3 bedrooms/3baths. We had plenty of parking available. Everything went very well. We had a huge amount of kitchen storage and all the supplies we needed. More than adequate supply of towels and linens. We loved the location among the trees and the view. Especially, LOVED having the rear carport entrance for loading and unloading since it rained MOST of the weekend. We also were able to park all three vehicles driven under the carport when there was a threat of storms and hail. Since it rained so much, we did not utilize the outdoor options(grill, gazebo, fire fit) at all, but would love to check these out next time. Not knowing the arrangement of the bedrooms, we had a few hitches. The couple assigned the upper bedroom had a private bath and everything worked out great. The main floor bath has only a tub unit, so the couple assigned that bath had to shower downstairs. The mirror in the lower bath was completely unusable due to darkening, so the couple assigned that bath had to go to the main bath upstairs to use the mirror when dressing. A bit inconvenient when everyone was getting ready at the same time. We never did get the MAN-Cave TV remote to work. Could have been cleaner. Ran across a few cobwebs and mouse droppings in the cabinets. The two bedrooms on the lower level have very dim lighting, but have very large closet areas. The cabin location was easy to find in the daylight, but we missed a few turns going in at night. FYI: There were two ceiling leaks in the sunroom and the wind broke a statute on the front porch. The door units to all the rooms are pocket doors, which I love, but they were very noisy. It was hard to be quiet opening the doors, especially during the night, and not disturb others. Overall, we would love to return for a visit in the Fall when the colors begin to show themselves.

    Beautiful cabin with spacious rooms. Lots of room to explore outside on 7.5 acres. My dog had a great time roaming around the premises. We also enjoyed the clear water creek nearby on the hot days and went into town to enjoy the local shops and activities with the locals picking and grinning at night on the weekends.

    Nice people to work with... comfortable beds and pretty cabin.
  8. 5/5
    We had a peaceful getaway at Jacob's Cabin. Plenty of room for our family. The large sectional sofa down stairs was amazing. So convertible. The big screen tv was nice also. We went shopping in town and when we got tired we went back to the cabin for some rest. I would recommend it to anyone!

    Enjoyed the stay. The cabin was everything we had hoped it would be and more. It was very spacious for our family of 5. I loved waking up in the loft every AM to a open view of the mountain side. I would recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.

    The house is beautiful, very well prepared to enjoy. We had a great time. Excellent service from Ivy vacation. Some cleaning and maintenance issues such as the main door needs to be fixed for summer to avoid insects coming in. Also the master restroom's door is not closing which is not a good thing.we had a problem with the hot water, Ivy service did their best to try to fix it even in Christmas Eve. Suggest to give time between people getting a bath to recover heater water level. Cleaning can be better, we had to wash bedding before using them because they didn't smell well. Suggest washing covers between guests.

    It was beautiful inside and out. Plenty of room to spread out with lots of room upstairs and down. My kids like the big tv’s for movies. We had a hard time getting the heat set just right where the loft wasn’t too hot and the downstairs wasn’t too cold but really that is my only critique. Plenty of blankets for those sleeping downstairs though so no one froze to death. Lovely views, quiet, perfect. Another perfect vacation compliments of Ivy Vacations!!!

    It was a nice place to stay. Could use some pot for cooking but nice enough. Kind of out in the middle of nowhere if that is what you want.

    The rental was exactly as advertised. The issue was that the AC was not working on the main floor and the loft. I messaged the staff and got no reply. I have had a great experience the last time we rented. I hope it is fixed before the next person arrives, and thankful they had fans scattered around.

    I really appreciate Danielle making our trip perfect. Jacob’s Roost is a great cabin with lots of space. The couches and beds were very comfortable. Housekeeping did a great job in making sure everything was spotless. I really enjoyed the swing on the front porch. I hope we can come back soon.

    Excellent place for a getaway. Clean and spacious. Would definitely recommend.
  18. 4/5
    The cabin was very nicely kept. Everyone enjoyed their rooms. Take your own bar soap for shower! Mouse poop in kitchen drawers was a negative. I realize we were in the country and this happens, but mouse poop and broken chips in drawers required me to wash all dishes and pans before i could cook. Downstairs outside door wouldnt lock, so that was kinda scary with the kids in the basement. And broken glass all out back by the trash bins. Dont drive your car back there.

    The cabin and property were beautiful and very clean. It was perfect for our mountain getaway trip and I would definitely stay again. I was particularly impressed with the responsiveness and preparedness of the hosts. They quickly answered my questions and provided multiple little booklets of information about the town and some things to do that were super helpful. There were plenty of trees where we were able to set up hammocks for afternoon naps which was awesome. In addition, they provided dog treats for our pups which was a great touch.

    If you're looking for a comfortable cabin to comfortably sleep six to eight folks in a very quiet spot, this is a good choice. Mountain View does not offer much to experience in town, but there are plenty of ways to enjoy the outdoors and Jacob's Roost is a good launching point. It's clean, definite cabin feel.
