Quick trip to Sylva and stayed in Best Catch. It was a wonderful home on the river with beautiful views. Would definitely book this again!

Great deck overlooking water. Liked open living room kitchen area.

We loved the acommodations ... the house was spacious and very well equipped as far as anything required for cooking, eating and sleeping for an extended stay! The king-size bed was more comfortable than mine at home! The location on the "Tuck" was perfect for the guys to do some major fly fishing which was the main reason for our adventure in the mountains! We found that Sylva is a great location for day trips to a lot of other towns and points of interests like viewing waterfalls! We so enjoyed our stay and do want to return next year! The only negative aspect of Best Catch is the steep and rough incline from the very front of the house that you need to maneuver in order to cross the road to enjoy the firepit or acess the river. It is difficult especially for anyone with a mobility issue! Besides that, Best Catch is a wonderful place to enjoy a mountain vacation!

The house was very clean, but I would advise anyone who stays here to be ready to climb many levels of stairs (on the outside) and to the second bedroom floor. Also there is a very steep driveway. Thus, if you don’t want to go up and down stairs, or walk up and down the driveway to go to the river, then I would not recommend. (You can drive the car down the driveway, if you want to sit or fish on the river.)
The river and the outside deck were the best part for us.

The home was very clean, comfortable and quiet. My sisters and I really enjoyed the beautiful views. Will definitely come back!!

This home is located on the beautiful Tuckasegee River about 40 minutes from Asheville. You can drink your morning coffee and watch geese fly up the river every day. It’s very peaceful and relaxing and could be a great retirement location.

Everything thing was awesome. I would give 5 stars had it had WiFi.

Best Catch cabin is so peaceful and a perfect getaway place! Rest or fish along the river. Stores within 10 mins drive. Casino 30 mins away. Kitchen fully equipped and has a grill and a fire pit. Nice balcony overlooks the river. If your looking for R&R , this is a great place to rent!

I loved everything it just needs wifi
Steven S. Jun 2020
Place was very well kept and very nice the only complaints I have was you couldn't watch TV at night and no WiFi and the neighbors a few doors down likes to use the bathroom where you fish. Other then that our week stay was great kids played/fished we caught quit a few trout it will make great memories.

When we arrived we had no a/c in 80 plus temperatures. VACASA never answered their customer service numbers. Even after hours of trying. Finally had to send a text message to get any response at all. We were there four days with no a/c. Service person came out on the fourth day but could not fix it right away. This was only after the owner got involved. He called us and got someone to come out quickly. The home was very nice. Right on the river. Great fishing. Beautiful area. Other than the a/c problem and bad VACASA service we loved the home.
Manager response:
We sincerely apologize for the delay in response time due to being short-staffed during COVID-19. We understand the discomfort you experienced and are sorry to read you are disappointed with our services. We hope to have the opportunity to impress you in the future!

Great House in a great spot. Everything about this house is first class, just no WiFI. Having no WiFI is even more frustrating as depending on your cell service provider, the cell and mobile date is sketchy. LOve everything about the house, but it really needs WiFi!
Barry H. Jan 2020
Very clean and great location!
Bill M. Dec 2019
Great view overlooking the river. Comfy and spacious. All the necessary kitchen gear. Loved it. WiFi would help.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Bill! We are glad you had a great stay! We have passed your suggestion regarding the wifi along to our local manager who will work with the homeowner to make any updates. We look forward to hosting you again!

Amy J. Nov 2019
This was such a lovely home. We loved the area next to the river. We enjoyer watching the people fly fish and enjoyed campfires by the river. The deck was so nice and the house was spotless. The beds were comfortable too.

We had the best weekend at Best Catch! This home is perfect for a getaway to the mountains. We couldn’t have been any more pleased with our stay. We will ABSOLUTELY be back!
Annette A. Oct 2019
Wonderful home! Great location.... close to WCU and fishing just steps away!
Heather L. Aug 2019
The home was immaculately clean & conveniently located close to town but far enough away to feel country like. The river access was wonderful as well as all the accommodations provided by the homeowner to enjoy, the home and the outdoors (especially loved the covered porch).
Beds were comfortable, furniture was ample and comfortable, linens were luxurious and anything you could have needed in the kitchen was there. We'd definitely stay again :)

This place was great. My family of six will be back. Really a great place to stay while, rafting, tubing, fishing, hiking, etc.

Went to spend the weekend for my sons WCU graduation. Great location and cabin. Enjoyed a place to nap after the ceremony while it rained. Wish we had found it when my son started at WCU years ago but happy we found the location for future get aways
