Beautiful accommodating cabin... one of the best vacations we ever had !!!
Leah T. Jun 2020
Place is great. In an awesome location with amazing views. The house is a bit more warn than the photo's show. The outdoor fire place wasn't working, and the hot tub was a bit dirty. Overall, we had an amazing stay! Would absolutely recommend for a group or family stay!
Manager response:

The cabin was even more beautiful than the pictures. The owners have everything stocked and ready for your stay. It was such a perfect place to stay for the weekend. Wish we could have stayed longer. Will definitely be back!

This was the perfect home to spend our Christmas family getaway! Beautiful home and amazing views! So close to Bryson City and Waynesville makes this cabin a must stay! So much fun and so nice! We will definitely stay here again!

We met family from multiple states for a wonderful family getaway. The cabin was beautifully decorated for Christmas when we arrived. We would definitely stay again.

This was a great home for our large family that attended a local wedding in Sylva! Beds were comfy and we enjoyed using the hot tub, pool table and both fireplaces throughout our stay. Easy to get to places and the Dillsboro and Sylva downtowns were just 4 mi away! Be sure to try the great cheesteaks at SOUTH OF PHILLY! There is also a super Walmart and 24 hr Dunkin Donuts! We would certainly come back. I would give 5 stars however, for the price charged for the cleaning fee- we would've expected the glass to be sparkling on the beautiful windows which are the focal point to this gorgeous home. The upper windows you could tell had not been touch in quite some time- they were dusty and had a film of dirt on them. The doors that lead outside had so many hand and finger prints. I know if this was my mountain home, I would want it to be sparkling. My sister in law had to wash her sheets from the main floor bedroom because she found hairs, questioning whether or not they had been washed from the guest before. I also found hairs on the tile floor in the upper shower. Seems the rug in that bedroom needs vacuuming as well. Some of the oven controls did not work, like the exhaust fan. All in all we enjoyed our stay and hope these comments are accepted as an honest feedback.
Manager response:
Hi, Terry! We have cleaned the windows, cleaned the rugs, and taken care of the bad oven controls. We hope to see you again!

We've rented all over western NC, north GA, and Tenn for over 15 years. This is home has what we look for - beautiful views, no other homes in view, clean, nice furnishings, all paved access for our sports car, etc. The management was great to work with, It was a pleasure, I always spend way to much time looking at rentals to decide on for our annual fall mountain trip and it was well worth it finding this home.

If you like seclusion, this place is for you. Plenty of things to do for the kids. Safe gated entrance up a STEEP incline that is paved. Only drawbacks are that the grill is rusted out, the oven fan for convection is shot, and dryer takes a couple of cycles to dry. (The vent had blown off the back and lint from previous renters was everywhere. It was an easy fix). Overall, those minor things did not affect an outstanding stay.
Manager response:
We are delighted to read you enjoyed your stay, Chad! Thank you for making us aware of these issues; maintenance has been scheduled to handle them right away. We hope to see you again!
