Thanks so much Nan! We enjoyed our stay in your wonderful cabin. There are so many great hikes withing a short drive of the cabin. We particularly enjoyed the Devils Courthouse and Mt.Pisgah. Courthouse Falls and Triple Falls were also favorites.

Artemis has already shown lots of improvement in her behavior thanks to your training. We also learned how to communicate more effectively with Artemis thanks to your advice.

Thanks! Gary, Arlene, Emily & Artemis

Thank you for a wonderful vacation! Your place is perfect for anyone who likes hiking, biking, fishing, wonderful views, clean air and their dog:) The dog training sessions were very informative and it's obvious that you love what you do. Cooper gives your place two "barks" up!!

Thanks so much for a lovely week in the Mountains! The cabins are set-up wonderfully for people with dogs, and we really appreciated the laid-back atmosphere.

Hope to be back soon!
