Very good
Joan A. Jun 2020
Beautiful setting!! Nice cabin, we quaint screened porch, nice front porch, super comfortable beds and quilts, nice dishes and clean appliances in kitchen. We wished we could have stayed longer just to enjoy the cabin and the setting. Loved the woods and surrounding pastures. Convenient to little towns as well as entrance to Smokey Mountains National Park. Four starts given instead of 5 because description doesn’t accurately describe the size and limited access to the loft. Stairs to loft are little more than a ladder. Fine for middle age kids or young adults. Not suitable at all for small children or older adults. House sleeps 8 but neither living room area or kitchen table can accommodate 8 people at one time. It worked out fine for 5 of us but any more and it would have been too crowded.

Beautiful and peaceful! I highly recommend The Ridge at Country Acres! Close to cities but far enough away to relax and take in the scenery! The cabin was clean and had a great touch of home! Loved our stay! It would be great to have multiple families rent the other cabins for a family reunion, etc!!

This house was beyond peaceful. Amazing views. Very private. I do think the floors In the kitchen and the living room need to be addressed ...they squeak very bad and if you are in the bedrooms downstairs you cannot sleep because the floors are so VERY loud when someone walks on them. The house is absolutely beautiful and very clean and the Lamas were a big hit with our group.
Manager response:
Hi, Paul! We are so glad you had a good time. We are checking the floors to see if we can do anything about the noise. Thank you for choosing Vacasa!

Wonderful location. Plenty of bedrooms. Den/living area and kitchen too small for number of bedrooms. Two bedroom cabins had more dinning/living space. Easy check in check out. Needs deep cleaning before spring. Just corners and books you dont normally see. Placed suitcase in closet floor and discovered mice evidence. While we may rent again a different cabin, this will help with appeal to others.
Manager response:
Carla, thank you for your feedback following your stay. We are glad to hear you enjoyed the location of this cabin. We apologize for the pests that made their way inside, and for the items missed by housekeeping. We have passed your comments along to be appropriately addressed by our local manager. We hope we can host you again!

This house was perfect. Beautiful "cabin" feel, but modern and well maintained. The cabin is set in a wonderful mix of forest and mountain farmland. Owners were super helpful. Close to so many great mountain towns. We will definitely go back!!

Relaxing, like staying in your own little tree house , clean and quiet ,beautiful area , only drawback was the bedroom in loft was not easy to get to by adults and kinda of risky for kids so we never used it , other than that we had a wonderful time , thank you

This cabin is close to everything and it's easy to get to! Cleaner than any other cabin I've ever stayed in. We had a wonderful time.

Cozy and roomy, quiet and peaceful. Exactly what we wanted. The house has a great kitchen, loft with two twin beds, a front porch with rocking chair and swing, and a back screened porch. The main floor also has a bedroom and bath. Downstairs are two fabulously chic bedrooms with wonderful bedding, a beautiful bath, and laundry room. Can’t wait to go back and could bring many more people.

Location was close to Cherokee. Very convenient. Home was very clean. Beds were super comfortable. The only small complaint was the steps to the loft were more like a ladder. Overall, loved it!
