We recently chased snow in North Carolina with our kiddos. It was an awesome trip! We booked this cabin at the last minute based off pictures and ratings. The only complaints we have are that the bath towels smelled like cigarettes and the pictures were clearly taken a while ago because the downstairs (room with 3 beds + game room) looked nothing like the pictures. Even with that, the rest was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was very well stocked. We brought groceries and there was nothing we needed in order to cook out food. The yard is perfect for kids to play in. They had a fantastic time in all the snow and plenty of yard to enjoy it. The road up the mountain was not nearly as bad as some of the other reviews said. Just use your good sense. Don’t try to go up it at night or in a lot of ice. Otherwise you’ll be fine. We’ve definitely gone up worse mountain roads. All in all a great snowcation. We just wish we had been able to call someone for smoke free towels (I’m sure they would have come, but we didn’t call because they wouldn’t have been able to make it because of the amount of snow). Thanks for sharing your cabin!

We had really good time. It's clean, neat and located at an amazing spot to view snowfall. I'm sure it will be an amazing location for falls too.
Good work Vacasa team!

Perfect views. Really enjoyed family time in the game room. Just what we were looking for in a quick getaway.
Very fortunate to have sunny weather. The steep gravel road up is fine in good weather but wouldn’t want to try it in rain or snow.

We Loved the view. The home was super nice, could not ask for more. We've rented more than two dozen cabins in the Smoky Mountain tri state are through the years and this is now our Favorite. Only two issues which is the drive up and no firewood supplied. Great Place!!!

Overall the house is great , The view is one of kind ,The drive the house can be a challenge if don't have the proper vehicle,The hot water is a little of challenge also, The house is beautiful and close to great restaurants.
Manager response:
We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We recommend 4WD for this gravel driveway, especially during winter. Local management has been notified of the hot water challenge to prevent future concerns. Thank you for your review and we look forward to hosting you again!

A beautiful home with everything you need for fun and leisure. The views from the back porch were breath taking and we spent hours just enjoying it and the quietness of the mountains. The kids loved the gameroom and their own space downstairs. There is a walking trail near the house so if you can't get away to the local waterfalls you can enjoy the outdoors and creek right here.

Cozy comfy home

Beautiful home and view!!! Location away from touristy area but you can be in Cherokee in a short drive!

We had a great time at Bella Vista. We found the house to be pretty much as advertised, and made great use of the living room and game room (with our 10-year-old son!). The space was very clean and beds were very comfortable. Only reason we aren't giving a five-star review is because the exterior accommodations were/are in need of some serious TLC. On the deck, there were a couple of broken chairs, the table was pretty dirty, and there were a good number of loose floor boards and nails sticking up (wouldn't recommend walking in your bare feet). The front yard was also overgrown - we had assumed from the pictures that it was a functional yard but because of the overgrowth we didn't spend any time there.
Manager response:
Hi, Tim! We are so glad your group enjoyed their time at Bella Vista. The table has been tightened, and the nails in the deck have been hammered in. The homeowner has been advised of the state of the yard so they can get it addressed along with some other exterior maintenance. We appreciate you bringing these things to our attention and hope to see you again!

My sons loved the game room on the first level. The views were amazing. It was quiet and serene. The house was beautiful. I really enjoyed the information book left on the table at the entryway.

Clean, up to date, and comfortable

The house was great. The views were spectacular!! The younger members of the family loved the “basement” game room! The road is a little tricky with the fog and especially after dark, but just go slow!
Faith S. Dec 2019
Our family loved the game room downstairs. The view is incredible. Less than 5 minutes to Dillsboro
Hilder W. Dec 2019
Beautiful view very quiet
David S. Nov 2019
The view was great, and the house was well stocked with everything we needed. A washer and dryer would be a nice addition. As advertised, a 4 wheel drive will be necessary in the wintertime.
Tasha S. Oct 2019
Loved having a bathroom for each bedroom. The home was super comfortable and accommodating. The view was unbelievable. We enjoyed the game room downstairs every night.

Grant T. Jul 2019
It’s a beautiful Cabin with probably one of the best views in the area. Absolutely loved it!
Alo A. Jul 2019
Bella Vista was nestled on top of a beautiful mountain isolated from the headache of neighbors city life and the everyday stresses of life. With a breathtaking view of the mountains that sure to keep you in awe for as long as you can stand it. The cabin has literally everything you would need except food. It’s location is just right outside the perfect town of Sylva that’s has tons of places to shop great places to eat and loads of fun for the family. I will be booking Bella Vista very soon you should too!

We had a great time at Bella Vista. Great Mountain View and very relaxing. Lots of activities nearby. Road the Great Smokey Mountain Railway. Good shopping in nearby Dillsboro and Sylva.

The house was very comfortable, and we loved the view. The game room is a nice bonus. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and enjoyed our stay. We were confused about the checkout list, as we were instructed to place linens in the washer, but there were no laundry facilities available. Hopefully, those instructions will be updated.
