Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Great House
A group of friends and their families rented A Glowing View for a ski trip and had a wonderful visit. The house was layed out perfectly for our group with every family having their own bedroom, closet and bathroom. The kids enjoyed hanging out downstairs playing pool and board games. The hot tub, wood fireplace and fire pit was a great touch! The home is also nicely located between Banner Elk and Boone so we could ski and explore multiple mountains during our stay. The only negative comment was that when we arrived late Friday evening the house did not have towels so we couldn’t bath before bed. We messaged the manager and our towels were promptly delivered the next morning. Thank you for a weekend filled with memories. We will be back!

Mountain Paradise
Our experience in this incredibly spacious home was wonderful. Three couples had plenty of privacy and great space inside and out. The wrap around porch provided fantastic views and shade all day.

A very nice house. Rental company has some issues.
A Glowing View is a very nice property. The owners obviously want guests to have all they need, as the house has everything provided that you could want or need. The view is beautiful, and the house is cozy and comfortable, with excellent bedding, comfortable seating, abundant kitchen supplies, etc. However, the rental company consistently does not have enough staff to answer phones promptly, does not have or provide emergency access numbers in case you need them, did not provide us the correct access code to get in the property, has times the phones are not covered at all during business hours, and the management was defensive when we had to travel from the rental home to their office to get someone to respond to our inability to get into the house, since no one was answering the phones. Once they discovered we were having problems, several people did contact us to make things right, and we were given a refund of the fee we paid for early check-in. That said, though, if we had not decided to pay for early check in, and had discovered our inability to get in the house possibly after 5 pm, it may have been difficult to get all the issues resolved. They did rectify the problems, but need to address having more staff available for the portion of their real estate agency that handles rentals.

Golden View Comments
This house sits on a beautiful piece of property and features large, well-appointed rooms with great closet space and and functional layouts. The master suite is especially nice with a terrific view of the mountains and a beautiful bathroom design. However, there are a few issues that I see that you wouldn't expect in a rental in this price range. The biggest issue is the lack of storage space in the kitchen area. Most of the cabinets are locked for the owners belongings which understand but makes it inconvenient for the renters. There's not enough space for organizing food, paper products, etc. The only saving grace was the large sub-zero refrigerator which was terrific. The massive fireplace in the den is awesome Probably the other biggest concerns are the cleanliness and maintenance of some of the house and it's amenities. A couple of examples were the age of the carpet in the hallway upstairs, the need for painting or cleaning the door entering the laundry room. The blind over the kitchen sink doesn't work properly and won't grip to hold itself up so you can enjoy the best view in the house while working in the kitchen.The condition of the hot tub cover is another issue where the hooks that are suppose to hold the cover down are both routed out. One of the doors in the master bedroom is rotten at the bottom and could lead to expensive repairs in the future. Again, the home itself is beautiful and it's clear the owners have good tastes but it's age is showing in some of the areas that haven't been updated. For these reasons I wouldn't rent the property again as we have had better experiences in other locations in this price range. Lastly, I'm not trying to be unkind here. I would love to own a home like this one and if II would hope my renters would give me honest feedback to help bring good renters who respect and take care of my property back for another stay. Best Regards, Mike

Marvelous Mountain Retreat
House was amazing! Long weekend enjoyed by all! House was very well equipped and had tons of space. A huge plus was that each bedroom had its own bath! Close to Boone and Blowing Rock! Definitely will be coming back for future yearly family mountain getaway!
