Wine Tasting Enthusiasts from Virginia and Florida Rave on Pilot’s Peak Cabin Retreat

This was a truly remarkable cabin retreat. Coleman was so attentive to every detail. There’s nothing more relaxing than a cup of coffee and the gentle sway of the [porch] swing in the morning. Sunset from the same spot was MAGNIFICENT!

The luxury linens, towels, and accommodations were the perfect compliment to the beautiful cabin & furnishings.  Pilot’s Peak Cabin Retreat exceeding all expectations-thanks to the hospitality of Coleman and the special meal prepared by LaTeah [Santucci]. The beauty of God’s country from the hilltop gazebo will be forever etched in our minds.

We celebrated a wonderful Easter at your cabin lodge retreat. A perfect home in a spectacular location at the top of Black Mountain.
Thank you for the special touches, especially the fruit bowls.

Last Week’s Guests’ Comments

We found Pilot’s Peak to be very comfortable. We especially appreciated the fact that it is very clean, came with paper products that were fully stocked, and had Select Comfort beds.

Our visit was short but a successful getaway!

We  enjoyed time with family at the cabin and seeing the deer & turkey outside in the mornings. The breathtaking view from the gazebo was beautiful.

Our experience here at Pilot’s Peak was absolutely wonderful. The accommodations were very beautiful and comfortable.

We enjoyed visiting Mount Airy and Pilot Mountain, but we looked forward to coming back to the cabin and enjoyed rocking or swinging on the front porch or walking to the gazebo.    Lisa B.

This has been a very nice experience for me and my husband. It’s so quiet and simply beautiful. The wild turkey and deer gaveus a welcome Thursday AM. This is a very beautiful place. Lenora B.

We absolutely had the best vacation in the mountains ever. Lisa B.

“Wow! What a wonderful place. Loved the view from the gazebo. Everything is perfect. We were awed by seeing the eagles flying while sitting on the porch swing.

You have done a terrific job. Thanks so much for allowing us to use your “home”.

Absolutely Awe-Inspiring

“Pilot’s Peak Cabin Retreat was absolutely awe-inspiring.  The view was spectacular and the “cabin” was so much more than a cabin.  The amenities where above and beyond what we had expected and the spaciousness was a pleasant surprise.  We where able to accomplish all of our objectives in a very peaceful and tranquil setting.  (The best part is that it is less than 40 minutes from Winston-Salem).  We will be using Pilot’s Peak for many of our future corporate retreats.  Thank-you Coleman and LeAura Alderson for a fantastic retreat!” –
