Awesome cabin! I would love here if I could
Susan A. Sep 2020
The cabin is secluded in a lovely wooded setting, yet close to a grocery store and just minutes from the national park, where we spent each day hiking. All the essentials were provided and the cabin was quite comfortable.
Elliott L. Sep 2020
This was the most comfortable, homey, perfect size place I have ever stayed. I could have lived there forever. The only life I saw in 4 days were 3 wild turkeys. It was more than perfect. Thanks

We had a great time at the cabin it was located within distance of everything very quiet we had one issue which really wasn’t an issue there wasn’t a toaster in the house and I mentioned it to the office and within two hours we had a brand new toaster in the house tell me how great that is we really enjoyed the stay and the company we will use them again.

This place is well equipped for a family of 4 with two beautiful bedrooms. The kitchen had all we needed except for a toaster. We were missing the smart TV in the living room.
Otherwise, it was just perfect for a "being away" vacation.
Thank you. It was a pleasure with no hitch or problem
Manager response:

I needed to be in the area for work for several days and this charming property was an excellent perch for a working stay. The covered porch was very nice and the property was well equipped with everything one would need. The pair of llamas and the little donkey that came across the pasture every afternoon for a visit was a definite bonus!

CHARM, so much Charm, to this cabin both inside and out!!! Tucked into the most beautiful spot! I made us feel incredibly private in our space yet the warmth of surrounding cabins Much farther up on the hills gave it a unique comfort! I Loved the early morning with coffee of the porch as the “smoke”, (which is the fog the Smokey mountains are named for) rolled over the top of the hills surrounding us and into the cove! It was a memorable trip!! I highly recommend it!!

We love the cabin. This was our second stay but first in the Cove. It was smaller but really nice. My only complaint is it sort of had a smell. It was a light smell of dog in the home. Everything else was perfect. Thank you so much. We will be back.
Manager response:
We are happy that you enjoyed this lovely cabin. This unit is not pet-friendly, and we have sent out our housekeeping staff to ensure that any odor that may have been there before has been taken care of now. We look forward to hosting you again in the future!

The cabin looked just like the pictures on the website. Beautiful and clean. It was near all the attractions I wanted to enjoy with my teens, horse back riding and white water rafting. I will definitely rent again. Thank you for making my vacation easy and stress free.
