We had a great stay. This was our second year in a row at this cabin. We liked it so much last year that we reserved it as we left. It was a little difficult being there this year as one of the four of us past away from cancer in Oct. after doing this weekend get-a-way together for 25years some sorrow and healing took place, but it was a great place to even do that. Thanks to the owners and the property managers keeping such a great place great!

We stayed at Byrd's Nest for a long weekend and had a great time! The kids loved the Foosball table and the swing outside, and we all enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and hanging out around the outdoor fireplace. The house was clean and comfortable and very comfy for 2 families. Had a great time exploring the town of Black Mountain and Asheville was not far at all. We would definitely return for another visit!

We have stayed in the cabin every Oct. for almost 10 years. It feels very homey and everything is well organized and labeled. I love the location-very private with a good view and yet closed enough to town and the interstate that you can easily come and go.

And such a great home to re-visit year after year. Thanks for being a loyal customer of Greybeard and Byrd's Nest. I'm glad you enjoyed the time again and we'll look forward to the next visit.

Had a wonderful time with friends and family at Byrd's Nest. The rental was clean, well equipped with tons of kitchen supplies and linens. There was lots to do around the house to entertain us and be on the lookout for the tree swing, which was definitely a hidden gem.

We spent three nights at the Byrd's Nest. My husband and I had the first floor Master. I would have preferred a king size bed but otherwise it had everything we needed. It has a rustic feel with all the wood trim but has the amenities of a newer home. Our two year old grand daughter and her parents had the upstairs where there are three bedrooms and one bathroom. It was perfect for them. It may have been crowded sharing the bathroom if more people had been there. The house had a very cute old time high chair that worked perfectly for the baby. I wish they had a Packnplay which would have saved us some space in packing in the car. There is a Mr. Coffee coffee maker with filters supplied. The house was well stocked with paper products and cleaning supplies. We didn't have time to use the hot tub but it looked great and the views off of the decks are very nice. I loved rocking in the porch swing and the rocking chairs. The living room space was perfect for us but again might be a little small for a large group of people. My granddaughter and I had fun counting all of the "birds" in the house although at first she was scared of them. The drive up the mountain to the house is a bit treacherous. I can't imagine doing it in the winter. If you go at night for the first time it might be a bit hard to find but I'm guessing most of the houses are that way. All in all, we enjoyed the Byrd's Nest and it met our needs. I would go back again.
Manager response on 2016-07-13 - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Sounds like a great time! Glad you enjoyed the three night stay. We often connect guests with Hey Baby Rentals that offer items like packnplays at affordable rates -- would recommend these guys when you return (hopefully soon)!

We had an amazing time at the Byrds nest! They literally thought of everything to make the stay amazing from the beautiful cabin, fire pit, hot tub, gas fire pit on the deck, and a fun swing we found for the kids off to the side of the cabin. We will be back for sure! I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone!

This was our first trip since both kids were born and it was perfect. The house and property were plenty big for our family to stay comfortably. We loved the big swing, fire pit, tether ball, gas fire pit on back deck, hot tub, etc. The house was really cute with fun family friendly touches. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals at the house. The view off the back porch was just what we wanted. Thank you and we will be back!!

Byrd's Nest rental was absolutely amazing. The cabin was beautiful inside. Plenty of room and more for our family of five. The bedrooms were all large and comfortable. The home is laid out nicely. The grounds surrounding the cabin are amazing! The kids stayed outside the whole time. So much privacy and room to explore! The location is great, secluded enough, with just a short drive into town. The road into the community and up to the cabin was easy to maneuver in our X5, even in the heavy rain. Would definitely rent this cabin again!!! Greybeard was such a pleasure to work with, made the rental process so easy!

The pictures do not do this house justice!! I was blown away when we pulled up to the house to find a wonderful home kept up and clean. More spacious than what the pictures portrayed. They even had hand, dish, and laundry soap there for our use. Which was really nice b/c you don't really want to have to buy that stuff when you're only at a place for a few nights. Driveway and lawn was well manicured. With so many places to hangout or to eat we didn't know if we could hit them all in just the few days we stayed there. The hot tub and the dining table on the back porch became our favorite places to be though. I really loved the private lookout view of the mountains down a small path from the driveway. You ended up at this huge boulder where you could see the entire sky and beautiful mountain range. Coffee in the morning there for a sunrise or a glass of wine at sunset. If I was to give this property one downside it would be the road to get there. I'm not afraid to ride down a gravel road but when that road was full of potholes and some serious bumps better trekked with an SUV and not a Prius. It would have been nice to know that before we drove up there so we could have taken another car or picked an easier to get to home. Oh and the cleaning fee that was included doesn't include many things. We basically had to do all the cleaning before we checked out at 10am. I feel that the checkout time should be at least noon though so that you can enjoy the home a couple more hours and sleep in a little longer.
Manager response on 2015-09-10 - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Glad you enjoyed the stay at Robin's Nest! Sounds like it was a nice vacation. Thanks for your feedback about the drive up to the property and our check-out policies. Just to provide some extra detail - we have the 10 a.m. time in place because it allows our housekeeping team to arrive at the home and clean in time for guests to arrive at 4 p.m. on the same day, and the only thing we ask in terms of cleaning is to run the dishwasher with used dishes and remove trash. Please do let us know if we can assist in the future - we'd love to welcome you back!

Byrd's Nest is an absolutely perfect and serene mountain getaway. The home was beautifully clean, adorably decorated, and had every possible amenity you could need for a long stay. We had such a blast coming down from the mountain each day and exploring Black Mountain or Asheville. We hope to visit again! We had one problem with getting our key upon arriving, but a property manager was very easy to get a hold of and solved the problem extremely quickly and professionally.
Manager response on 2015-09-09 - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Glad that the small kink with the key was a quick fix and you were able to get back to enjoy your vacation. Please let us know if Greybeard can help with your next visit to the mountains!

My family and I vacationed in Asheville with close family friends. This home was absolutely perfect for us! My husband and I, and our two year old son took the two upstairs bedrooms and bathroom, and our friends, who don't have kids, got the downstairs master. It worked out perfectly, giving our sleeping son peace and quiet, and giving our friends a little distance from our early riser =) The home has all of the amenities you could want, features a lot of entertainment options. We loved it!

The house was exactly as described. Very beautiful, very clean and had all the amenities that we could think of. The hot tub was very clean and we used it each night along with the wood fire pit and the propane fire pit. We wanted to book it for Thanksgiving but it was already booked, not surprised because the house is so wonderful.

Byrd's Nest is only 15 minutes or so from downtown Black Mountain but offers seclusion and privacy. The house is spacious, the kitchen well-equipped, and the amenities--including a hot tub, tree swing, and horseshoe court -- are wonderful. We woke up to the sun cresting the mountains and the hummingbirds whirring in to drink from the feeders. Just a great experience.

This was a fantastic location and cabin. The cabin has everything you could ever need and was very well maintained. The views from the front and back decks were great, and we spent most of our time on the back deck enjoying the overall ambiance. Great place and couldn't be more pleased with our visit.

Wonderful Week

We had a wonderful week at Byrd's Nest. The house was incredible and very well stocked. We enjoyed our time at the house as much as the time we spent out and about. We made s'mores in the fireplace one night, enjoyed eating on the deck overlooking the mountains and played card games every night. We had people in the group from age 7 to age 82 and I can say our whole family had a wonderful time. We hated to leave!! Only reason I didn't give 5 stars on location is that its quite a rocky drive up to the house which wasn't a big deal but would have been easier if it had been paved. Once we got used to it the drive seemed easier. Highly recommend this house to anyone and hope we get the chance to come back soon!
