Tranquil cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

This property suited our requirements perfectly. Our family of six adults needed a base to stay while attending a weekend of events for a wedding. We needed to be in the Chapel Hill/Carborro area, and nothing was more than 10/15 minutes away. The cabin had everything we needed. Very tasteful decor, and updated bathrooms. We appreciated the peace and quiet, tucked away in the woods, giving us the chance to recharge.

Jim, the owner, replied very promptly to all my enquiries, and if you're a planner like me, you will appreciate that.

We are VRBO fans, and would highly recommend this property.

Comfortable, tastful, modern house in a beautiful woodland setting.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with renting a home for a family rendezvous and because of it, we will do so again. Jim's response time to our communications was excellent! We would give our experience a 4.75 if we could. The linens were musty from the cleaners not leaving the washing machine open between loads. They needed to be rewashed after we ran the sanitize cycle on the machine. Also, we received the key code at five rather than the 3 pm check-in. However, Jim responded to our inquiry about the code very quickly! We would rent the home again. Breakfast at Elmo's in Carr Mill mall was tasty and our visit to the NC Botanical Garden was lovely.

Perfect Graduation Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I cannot write a more enthusiastic review of the Modern Rancher in the Woods!!! Our extended family descended on Chapel Hill for UNC’s graduation this past weekend and this home was the perfect lodging for six people and a relaxing “home base” for the rest of our group. The large sectional couch and extra well as the ample back deck...were perfect for family enjoyment. The property is located within an easy drive to downtown Carrboro/Chapel Hill, yet in a beautiful wooded setting with various birds and deer spotted out of the large front picture windows during our stay! The house is fully-equipped and tastefully decorated. Best of all, Jim Slagel (the owner) was terrific in his communications with me. While there were no “glitches” that came up during our stay, I knew exactly who to call and was confident that any problems would be handled promptly and fully. My sincerest thank you to Jim for allowing us to stay in this fabulous home!!! We will definitely look forward to staying here again when our travel brings us to the Chapel Hill/Carrboro area!!!

Comfortable, close, and private

  • 5 of 5

This well maintained property is close to Carboro and Chapel Hill attractions and was both comfortable and well maintained. The mechanical systems were well maintained and all functioned as expected. The furniture well planned and comfortable. The location gives a feeling of privacy yet is just minutes from restaurants and shopping. We were in town for a family event and were impressed with the organized and well stocked kitchen implements. We look fondly forward to our next visit. Thanks Jim!
