Sandy and John were great host. Room was very comfortable and information that Sandy gave me upon check in was very helpful and thorough. Access to the property may be difficult with out 4wheel/Front wheel drive, especially in rain or snow. Overall, I had a pleasant experience and would consider staying at their property again.

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. They offered to build a fire if we wanted one either outside or in the common room. (That would have been fun to take advantage of!) The bedroom had a wall of windows that allowed us to see the hills and you really felt a part of nature - that is if nature also had a whirl pool tub. So it's the best of both world's! Our only complaint was that the internet was unreliable. Just make sure to keep your expectations low when it comes to internet usage and go soak up the beauty nature has to offer.

Loved our weekend in the mountains! I have never seen more stars than the first night at Castle Ridge. Very comfortable space. Visit Lake Moomaw and Falling Spring waterfall! Hosts were very nice.

This AirBnB was beautiful and very clean! Our private room was very comfortable and spacious with a jacuzzi bath tub and great view over looking the mountain. The shared living area was great as our 2nd night there, the weather started getting cold and we were able to use the fire place to make it more cozy. A Keurig coffee maker was also provided in the living area, where we could have a nice cup of coffee or tea every morning. John and Sandy also provided us with a list of restaurants (addresses and prices too) so that we had an idea of the area since the town was pretty small. Overall, this was a great airBnB, and I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to explore the hot springs/Covington area.

John & Sandy were amazing hosts. They were there when you needed them and offered plenty of privacy at the same time. The room we stayed in had amazing views especially at sunrise and sunset. They are very knowledgable about the area and offered all of the suggestions we needed for a fun weekend!

This is the perfect place for a weekend getaway! Amazing views, great nearby hikes, and relaxed soaking in the Jefferson Pools (20 min drive). John & Sandy are lovely hosts, helpful in giving advice on activities etc. while respectful of the guests' space. The place was extremely comfortable and the bathroom with jacuzzi a treat.

John and Sandy's place was private and secluded. They welcomed us warmly and showed us around, and though they were available, we felt like we had the place to ourselves since no one else was in the other 2 suites. Super close to the Homestead and 15 mins away from Jefferson Pools in Warm Springs. What a refreshing getaway!
