A private cabin on top of the hill. My husband and I stayed for 6 nights and we enjoyed the cabin immensely. It felt warm and cozy. The wildlife surrounding the cabin along the fence were an added bonus. Bulls, cows, llamas, donkeys and turkeys, bush crickets ( I mention this because the sound at night is really amazing). The bed is very comfortable. We didn't use the upstairs but we found the downstairs very acceptable. We consider returning next year.

This beautiful log cabin was perfect for our family of four! The farm animals down the road were a perfect added bonus! We highly recommend and will be back!

Looking forward to our next stay. Private hilltop location close to town, farm animals, hawks, great sunsets and evening campfires...

Great cabin with amazing views and plenty of farm animals nearby. The cabin has plenty of space for 4 people with great indoor amenities. Would highly recommend this cabin or any of the other 4 on the property!!

Enjoyed this cabin a lot. Very peaceful, quiet location. Just outside of town, but still close to a lot of nice areas to see in the mountains.

Excellent place to stay on top of a hill in the mountains of North Carolina. Located just 10 minutes from the entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Loved this cabin and location. We were there trying to catch the Fall and fell in love with the area. The cabin was very quaint and exceeded our expectations. Thank you Vacasa!

Our 5 night stay was very enjoyable. The cabin is in a beautiful forest at the top of the hill. Not much wildlife around. Cabin is clean and comfortable. Kitchen is equipped with most everything you need. Loved the gas stove. Furniture in the living room was comfortable. Gas fireplace is just for visual effects. It has absolutely no heat value. All the heat goes straight up the chimney. I did smash a huge black spider in our bedroom the last night. Glad I seen it on the floor before I crawled in bed. LOL. All and all we enjoyed the cabin. Very convenient to Cherokee and the Smokey Mountain National Park.

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at The Hilltop. It was the most relaxing trip I’ve ever been on! The cabin was perfect for just the two of us. It was so beautiful and cozy. We enjoyed the scenery as well as the quaintness. We felt secluded which is what we were looking for, yet we were only a few minutes from a grocery store, fast food, and the casino. We drove into Gatlinburg which wasn’t a bad drive either. We are planning on going back and taking our children with us. The Hilltop at Country Acres would be absolutely perfect for a couple or even a family. We will definitely be booking again in the near future!

So enjoyed our stay! The cabin was fully furnished, neat and beautifully decorated- as the pictures suggest. Enjoyed the porch in the morning and fire pit at night. We felt nestled in the mountains! Took advantage of the tubing on the river, horse riding and shopping/dining in Bryson City! Great weekend with friends- would love to return with the family!

This cabin is wonderful. It's woodsy but still close to everything we wanted to do. Wild turkeys joined us for lunch and the cows right next to us were well behaved. The short drive back to the property is also gorgeous. We'll return.

Really enjoyed a 4 day vacation at the hilltop, it was an excellent location for travelling to the smoky mountains and surrounding areas.
The cabin is small and quaint but perfectly equipped with all things visitors would need.

Everything! View, outside fire pit and chairs the house , only thing we missed was a recliner. My husband has some heart problems and needs to put his legs and feet up and there was no recliner for this . Other than that , all was great .

My husband and I spent a week there and wished it could have been two weeks. It was peaceful and the view was beautiful. We enjoyed the birds and animals. Some came to visit at night and peeked at us through the door. One wood pecker caused quite a rukus. I am afraid he is going to damage the house. We liked it enough to book it for next year before we left. Thank You.
