We enjoyed the sounds of the river and the great view from the deck. Only down side was the noise from the truck traffic. Over all a great place that we will stay at again.

The pictures don't lie! Perfect setting! The cottage has a beautiful view of the river and mountains from all the glass doors. Sitting out on the deck is so peaceful. Love the views of the river. The cottage was very clean and had very comfortable beds. The kitchen had everything you would need to cook. Only negative was no internet or cell service, but it was stated in the description, so it was no surprise. Just a couple miles up the road is the cute little town of Dillsboro. You can get good cell service there. It has some neat shops and good restaurants. We enjoyed our stay!

I totally loved this place!! Really hated to leave this morning!! Only thing I didn't like was the getting out into the road!! If you could just trim the bushes just a little. Of course that's minor..And the fact I had no internet lol minor again..View was totally amazing..just couldn't quit bragging about it ..Got wonderful pictures and shared on facebook..I would love to come back again soon..
Very relaxing place and wish I was still there.
Thanks for letting us go to your cabin

Location was perfect. The view to die for, the river sounds caused many afternoon naps. Perfect!

The patio doors from all rooms to access the beautifull porch and incredibly beautifull river. Then the mountain view with the fall colors. To sum it up LOVED IT !!!!!!!!!!!

Convenient location and had everything I needed. But the driveway is hard to get out of. Lots of bushes blocking your view of the road

cleanliness, view and location. Mattress in back bedroom needs replacing. Getting out of driveway onto road very difficult, because of speeding traffic. Not able to see to left, because of bushes along fence.
Manager response:
Hi, Stacy! We will be trimming back the bushes to assist with visibility. Thank you!

We loved our stay here! The view from the porch was amazing! The home is small but was clean and comfortable and perfect for just the two of us. The central air was nice as well. The home is close to many attractions, as well as restaurants & craft beer places.
If you want to fly fish, kayak, canoe or float this is the area for you!
There is an outfitter just down the road.
Overall we loved our stay & the location and would love to stay there again in the future
