House is neat and cleaned
Tammy B. Nov 2020
The ladies in our family came from different states to spend a weekend together. This home fit our needs perfectly. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for privacy when needed, and plenty of sitting space in the family area for watching movies and spending time together. Many large homes have the bedrooms and baths, but only a few comfortable places to sit which makes no sense for places that hold crowds. The pilot light on the fireplace wouldn't light, but one call to the 800 number had a very pleasant technician out quickly to solve the problem. The house was well stocked and very clean. It was also easily accessible without the narrow curvy mountain roads leading to it. We will definitely stay here again.

Perfect for the family looking for peace and quiet. Very comfortable and clean. Close to Cherokee, Highlands, and Maggie Valley. Highly recommend this house. We will be staying here again soon.

It was nice and we had more than enough room. Wish I would have brought my father with me because it's right at the river and my dad loves to fish. I will be bring him back in June.

If I ever vacation in this area again, this property would be at the top of my list to acquire. A immaculate home, that's by a calming river, in a tranquil environment, with excellent customer service provided by Vacasa, equals a excellent and worry free vacation!!! This property is highly recommended, to be experienced, while on a getaway or a vacation.
