Close to the area for site seeing. But far enough away to have a quiet and peaceful stay.

Location was great. Everything was there to relax and enjoy.

We so enjoyed our trip to Whittier. The cabin had everything we needed - especially things like wood for the firepit and propane in the grill! Beds were comfortable, house was clean. The cows just across the drive were so fun to watch, and the little "neighborhood" was just lovely. We felt secluded with the wildlife but knew there were other cabins just around the bend. Can't beat the location if you want to have outdoor adventures - close to several rivers and creeks for tubing, rafting, waterfall hikes, mountain and horseback riding. And close to Cherokee for cultural activities and casino fun! Not many restaurants to choose from, but Dillsboro is a half hour away and had lots of mom and pop restaurants. Don't miss Peter's Pancakes for breakfast in Cherokee, though! We will be back at this cabin next year!

The cabin was so inviting and comfortable. We loved being in a quiet area on the farm, but close to Cherokee. The beds and linens were so comfortable.the kitchen had everything we needed and the farmhouse sink was devine! We enjoyed the porches so much. It was nice to have three options!! We stayed with our kids, ages 12, 9, and 5 and chose not to use the loft bedroom just because of the ladder. Definitely fine for teenagers though. We would love to stay here again.

The location and views were incredibly scenic. Easy to locate and access. Weather for our trip was perfect, but the inclines would definitely require 4WD/AWD or chains in snowy weather. Spacious, comfortable and clean.

Cabin was very clean and had everything we needed! Quiet neighborhood!
Joey R. Feb 2021
This cabin was not very clean for our arrival. We had to wipe down all counters and interior of the fridge. Also the pans for the oven were gross!
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us, Joey. We apologize if the cleanliness of the cabin left something to be desired. We will follow-up with our housekeeping team to see that future cleans are completed to our standards, and we hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

The space is this cabin was perfect. It was so quiet and peaceful. We would definitely come back. Thank you!!
Debbie W. Oct 2020
The cabin was nice, but smaller than appeared in the pictures.
The floors looked dirty in places, and the outdoor space out back had debris all over it. There were cobwebs too.....indoors and outdoors.
The grill had to be put back together before we could use it.
The gas fireplace wouldn't work.....even though it was supposed to be in operation at the time we were there.....and the weather was cool so we could have used it. The downstairs bedrooms were very cold.

Now. If that weren't enough, we had to be out by 10 a.m. That in itself isn't so bad except.........
We had to strip all the beds, gather up all the towels, etc, take them downstairs, and start a load of laundry before we left.
We also had to take all the garbage out, and put it in bags.
And.....we had to wash, dry, and replace all the dishes before we TEN a.m.

Then it dawned on me.......just how clean were the dishes that we ate off of? It just depends on how good of a job the last people did.

Most of this review would not have even been mentioned except that we had to do all that work, pay a cleaning fee for a cabin that wasn't real clean, and ALSO be out by 10. We did at least 1/3 of the work for them.
Manager response:
Debbie, we apologize for the service issues that impacted your visit. We appreciate you sharing your feedback and concerns with us directly following your stay in order for us to address the areas in need of attention throughout the home. We are happy to report that a deep clean has been completed and the fireplace is working properly. Please know that while we don't expect our guests to perform any cleaning during their stay, we appreciate a starting of the dishwasher or a load of laundry if time permits. We hope for an opportunity to provide you with an exceptional vacation experience in the future!

Very good
Phoebe P. Aug 2020
Very convenient to Cherokee. Comfortable and private. Plenty of towels and toiletries.
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.
Kelly B. Jun 2020
This property was perfect! It had everything we needed, plenty of space, and beautiful surroundings. Definitely will book again!
Amy L. Jun 2020
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!!
Patrick B. Mar 2020
Plenty of privacy. LP has ran out. They replaced within the hour. Plenty of room. Will stay here again
Paul H. Feb 2020
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!
Carla T. Jan 2020
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!
Edward D. Nov 2019
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!!
Jeff B. Nov 2019
Nice cabin. Peaceful and quiet area.
Brian H. Oct 2019
Didn’t want to leave.
mary w. Oct 2019
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
Deborah J. Aug 2019
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.
CHERILYN M. Jul 2019
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.
Amy P. Jul 2019
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!
