Our group of 5 loved our stay at this cabin! It was super spacious and such a cute place to get away on vacation. We all loved sitting on the balcony and enjoying the view. The hot tub and sauna were great to have as well. The beds were all really comfortable. The view from the upstairs table is incredible as well. We played games there at night and really enjoyed it.

The location is great! We ate and shopped in Sylva and Dillsboro. It was about an hour and a half from Asheville so we made the drive and it was a gorgeous drive the entire way. As stated in other reviews, the drive up seems challenging the first time you go up, but after you get the hang of it, it isn't bad at all. Just take your time and it’ll be a breeze, at least in the summer. We did it at night and the daytime and it is not bad at all once you go up once.

The only things that would’ve made our stay even better would’ve been if the fire oit had worked, the grill was clean, and if there was hand soap in all of the bathrooms.

We had a great stay and would for sure stay here again!

Wow, I could not say enough great things about this place! The views are stunning, the cabin was clean and had everything we needed, the sauna and hot tub were the best after long hikes, and sitting by the fire pit in the evenings was the perfect way to end the day. Great location too, amazing hikes within 20 minutes-1 hour of the place. Could not recommend a better place for a mountain vacation!

We had the best weekend! We had such a great time relaxing and enjoying the views! Our kids loved it as well. We thought the hot tub was awesome and other amenities. It was also very clean! Overall, a wonderful visit!
Brought my kids and parents here for a Spring Break getaway in March. The cabin was beautiful and clean. The views were incredible and the location was ideal to get to several of the small towns and good hiking. We were disappointed that the fire pit out back was not working and despite the good time, march is not an ideal time to travel to this area. It is out of season. But despite that and the looming covid19 we had a great escape from reality.

This was a nice home and very nice views. Comfortable bed, lots of space for a larger group (although we only had 2).

The driveway is steep as noted by others. Be careful of your front bumper heading up :)

Could maybe use a spring refit. The propane fire takes a few minutes of holding the button to get going. Board loose on the stairs, handle loose on the shower, stuff like that. Likely just a day or two of maintenance and everything would be back to prime.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Patricia! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We will work with our team to identify areas for improvement. We look forward to hosting you again!

We stayed here for my twins 10th birthday and it was everything we could hope for. It was beautiful and open. The kids loved the hottub. I will definitely use them again for next year!
Monique W. Jan 2020
It was quiet, secluded and perfect for our family of 4! We would love to come back during the warmer months.

The house had good views and work well with 11 of us. the layout was good and was a Log Cabin.
Denise Q. Dec 2019
Loved spending Christmas with our family! The cabin worked so well for 3 families -enough room. The amenities were great! Wish they all worked. Beautiful views ! Must be really beautiful in the fall. Place needs some TLC

This home has everything needed for a Thanksgiving gathering. The location is superb.
Lori Y. Nov 2019
The house was beautiful. The only issue we had was we had an RV and the road getting to the house was very narrow and steep. We could not get the RV to the house. Luckily we were there for our sons wedding and we were able to leave the RV at the venue and get rides back and forth. I would make sure that this is mentioned on the information page about this property.

Beautiful cabin. Scary drive up
Mary C. Sep 2019
The home was very comfortable, but the highlight was sitting on the porch, looking out at the mountains and watching the stars come out.
Carole S. Sep 2019
Lovely well-decorated cabin, comfortable and semi-secluded. Plenty of room for 8 people. The cabin is close to stores and cute little towns and a pretty drive up to it. Pay close attention to items they say they provide and note what they don't provide. A previous guest already mentioned this several months ago and whoever answers these reviews said they would pass it along, but didn't as there are still no kitchen washcloths or dishtowels. Also, only 1 roll of toilet paper in each bathroom and 1 roll of paper towel for 8 people; one tiny bar of soap in each bathroom, and only enough dishwasher detergent and dish soap for maybe one meal. Cell service is spotty but they do have wi fi but no landline. Cable TV is very basic, no movie channels. The hot tub was very nice, easy to get into and at night you can see a billion stars from it, love that it is so dark. There is an electric ice cream maker and large electric griddle which was handy and pretty nice set of pots and pans. We were able to cook everything with what they provided, it is just cleaning up was a challenge with no supplies. The beds were comfy and the basement is a great place for the kids to gather. We enjoyed our stay.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Carole. We have sent your review onto the local staff regarding the dish towels. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at our home. Our homes are supplied with a starter pack of soap/detergent. If more is needed/desired, guests will need to supply that for their stay.

This was the perfect place to escape real life for a few days. The views are absolutely breathtaking. We loved just sitting on the porch in the evenings. Thanks so much for sharing your gorgeous spot with us.
David B. Aug 2019
This cabin is gorgeous and we really enjoyed our time here. View is outstanding!
Melissa H. Aug 2019
The house was great! My family loved it. We really enjoyed our stay!!!!
Sandra G. Aug 2019
Two families with teenagers stayed in this cabin and it had plenty of room. Tons of space and games for the boys. The adults loved the jacuzzi and the views. The driveway up is steep but no issues during the summer. Not sure my car would have made it in the winter months. Would definitely stay here again. Very clean and no issues during our stay.
Emilienne J. Jul 2019
This property is totally secluded at the top of the mountain. Immaculately clean. Breathtaking views throughout the entire house. Awesome deck, with lovely, heavy wooden rocking chairs to gaze at the mountaintop view as the clouds literally float by you. The deck goes across the home with doors from both the living room & master bedroom. The open air living room is bright with the same views as the deck. A total escape from reality.
Thomas R. Jun 2019
Beautiful house and great views! We will stay there again.
Jane Z. Jun 2019
Beautiful Mountain Home served as a great getaway for six ladies! The rain didn’t stop our enjoyment of the large porch that felt like a private treehouse!
Steve R. May 2019
Beautiful view. Beautiful house. Enjoyed the hot tub. Kitchen needs a few more essentials. There were only two dish towels, no pot holders and one very badly scarred fry pan.
Manager response:
Steve, we apologize for the missing items in the kitchen. We appreciate your feedback and will make sure the local manager is aware. Thank you.
