Long Cove Resort
NYE weekend for a family of 5--2 room Cabin with Loft. We had a great time at Long Cove albeit sub freezing weather. The only reason I didn't post 5 stars is because I have really high expectations and there were little things like...mentioning it was our family and we had kids and we were there to celebrate NYE....it would have been cool to have more than 2 packets of hot cocoa and maybe throw in something special like microwave popcorn or sparklers...but that's just me. ALL that aside we had a 5-STAR time...we just provided the extras ourselves. We had a beachfront bonfire and staff helped gather extra chairs. The cabin was clean and comfortable, the staff was friendly and accommodating and the lake view was AMAZING!! We will surely be back--especially in the warmer months ahead so we can take advantage of kayak and boat rentals! Grocery store & restaurants are 10min away; Hiking and biking...5 minutes away (plenty of places for kids of all ages to run and play right on the property) They also offer great deals during the off season--Check them out. I would HIGHLY recommend Long Cove Cabins to family and friends.
This is definitely one of North Carolina's best kept secrets, my fiance and I will be returning with more family. Love the fact that it's in the middle of the city so you get the best of both worlds. The Premium Outlets and restaurants are 15 minutes away but the campgrounds are tucked away so well that you do not get the feeling of being in the city. The staff was very sweet and accommodating the cabins are so cute they definitely give you the feeling of tiny homes but the lay out makes it roomy and it gives you everything you need. The only thing that I wish we had more information on was the hiking trails and the date and times for when the Boating Shack is open.
BE SURE TO ASK ABOUT THE EUROPEAN TAX ON AMERICAN SOIL! Upon my arrival for check in, my initial thought was "Dirty Dancing 2018 style." I was impressed by the view of the lake, and the beautiful tiny houses. I was shown to the cabin, and I thought that it looked amazing. My complaints are these: was given 2 different quotes before I booked. EXTREMELY overpriced, especially for what you are getting. The septic tanks make the whole campground stink. For 2.5 weeks I was provided with 5 towels, 2 bags of coffee and 6 tea bags, and was told that anything beyond this I would need to purchase, good thing that I had brought my own. I was then told that if I wanted the cabin cleaned while I was staying there that it would be an additional fee of $25 each cleaning.... Now, if you stay at a hotel, getting housekeeping is included in the rate. The Wi- Fi did not work, the water was shut off, there was a leak in the septic tank line under the cabin, and who knows what stuff ran off into the lake. But the clincher for me is that while I was still staying at the campground, I received an additional charge of almost $1000 for all these fees that were supposed to be included in my ORIGINAL QUOTE! One of these added fees was for $69.95 for cleaning the place for 2 people, and then another fee for cleaning after a service animal, that both myself and fiance were told was going to be removed because he is a service animal. When I brought this information up to Elaine, I was told that it was going to be refunded, but then once I was gone I received an email stating that the fee was not going to be refunded. This place seems to me that there are too many cooks in the kitchen and I was given conflicting stories each time I spoke with someone different. I am thoroughly disappointed in this place. I could have been treated better and gotten a better rate at the Ritz
Thank you Long Cove Resort for the wonderful weekend! Our group was quite impressed with the "tiny house" cabins and beautiful views. We rented two cabins for the weekend and loved having a grill right outside our cabin. We enjoyed several camp fires at night! It was a great time of togetherness and teamwork. The first of many visits to Long Cove!
The tiny house cabin was perfect. Spotless with all the necessary amenities. The sunset over the lake was amazing. Cant wait to return this summer.
