The views were awesome! The house itself clean and extremely cozy. We really enjoyed getting away to such a pleasant place!

It was great being on the river and was very relaxing. Nice cabin and nicely decorated. When going to get a shower the towels and wash clothes were not smelling good. It appeared to me they were musky smelling. I think they were put away still wet and they didn’t smell good at all. Host needs to leave an info book for renters. Had a hard time figuring out how to do tv with dish. I live in the city and we don’t have dish so I didn’t know what the channels were.

Absolute Heaven on earth, very peaceful. Best equiped kitchen I have ever experienced with a rental. TV didn't have very good channels.

Visted 8.23-27.2021. The Country Cottage was small but cute as could be and comfortable, perfect for a couple. The view is absolutely breath taking. Unfortunately the river was high and rolling pretty fast due the large amount of rain the western part of NC received from remnants of Hurricane Fred, fishing was tuff and floating for us was not an option. But I bet is a great place to fish and float when river is at normal levels. Getting in and out of the driveway is a challenge with all the traffic. Recommend backing down into driveway to to make it a little easier to get out. With the bushes by the fence, it is difficult to see oncoming traffic from the left without pulling out into road, which is dangerous, and the driveway being close to a curve with traffic going fairly fast around the curve from the right, I recommend a driveway mirror be posted to help with the challenge of getting out of driveway safely. River Road is close to the front of the cottage and can be very noisy when sitting outside, as well as the traffic on Mockingbird Road which on the opposite side of the river, but traffic seemed to subside at night. Some outside maintenance is needed, as well as ceiling (popcorn ceiling falling down)and wall repairs in bathroom (probably from lack of air vent) , snowball bush at side stairs needs to be cut back so the side stairs can be used, and the stove eyes need cleaning. The cottage was very well stocked. We enjoyed our stay.

I love the view of the mountains as the clouds lift and the sun sets. The river and mountains are full of adventure and nature. This is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. Loved every minute. I highly suggest Dillsboro, Island park in Cherokee, and going west into the many national and other parks. We went to Joyce Kilmer forest it was awesome. Also the Great Smoky mountain railroad was a blast! Great home, location, and feeling. Thank you for sharing your sweet cottage.

We had a great time. Kids enjoyed playing and fishing in the river.
Pamela H. Jun 2021
Loved the view of the river leading to the mountains. Having the deck right on the river was nice as well. Just what my husband and I needed for a weekend getaway!
Meishelle T. Jun 2021
View was beautiful but house much smaller than expected and very close to other homes which can’t see in pictures. River very unsafe to access from this home and had to go elsewhere to swim/tube. Not enough toilet paper or paper towels left for a 4 day visit... just disappointed. Not what I expected.

We had a great time at the house. The view and river are amazing! The fishing was terrific and right from the deck! We knew prior to going that there would be no cell phone service or wi-fi so it was nice to just disconnect for the week. The area is gorgeous and the folks are friendly. Close drive to a lot of attractions and waterfalls. Our concerns were that there just wasn't enough closet space for 5 adults. One bedroom's closet had the AC in it and 2 were locked and unable to utilize so 5 adults had to share one tiny closet in the other bedroom. The road traffic was crazy busy and the fence on the road had foliage all over it which made it impossible to get in and out of the driveway because it blocked the view of incoming traffic. The bathroom has no vent and even showering with the window open still left the humidity horrible. Each morning we'd wake to find more of the popcorn ceiling had fallen in the bathroom to the floor. Looks like they have attempted to make repairs to the walls and ceiling in the bathroom but due to moisture due to no fan doesn't seem to be holding up. I'd only recommend this house to 2-3 adults due to small size of the home but the outside space and deck make up for all the inconveniences in the inside of the house. If you head out to eat in Sylva make sure to stop by the Haywood Smokehouse on Haywood Rd. We will definitely be back to the area!

This house was absolutely perfect for our little family. The location is nice and quiet. Some folks complained about road noise, but it's really not bad at all. It's a beautiful location that is conveniently near enough to town but also just far enough off the beaten path. Absolutely perfect.
timothy b. Nov 2020
Sun bright house with great views from a large deck. Internet would make it perfect. Thanks for the visit.
Tina C. Nov 2020
Loved that every room had a view of the river! The beds were very comfortable and perfect for my husband and me! Hope to go back and fish off the deck!
Sherry F. Oct 2020
Absolutely wonderful

The view was stunning!
James D. Oct 2020
We had a great time here! Really loved the view! Only downside was we didn’t have cell phone service (Verizon) but that won’t stop us from coming back!
Mary Jo D. Sep 2020
My family had an amazing Labor Day vacation in this wonderful home. Great furnishings were very comfortable. The deck is amazing! So much outdoor fun in the river- tubing, fishing, bird-watching. I could not have asked for a better home at such a great deal.
Carol E. Aug 2020
The home was cute and right on the river. It was a beautiful area. The home had everything we needed in the kitchen. We caught a few trout, one was caught directly from off the porch. My grandson caught a huge 8 lb trout less than a mile from the cabin up the river. We have already recommended this cabin to friends.
Harley C. Aug 2020
Nice location on the river. Pretty and comfortable. We really enjoyed it.
Mary T. Aug 2020
This is the perfect location for a getaway.. the view is priceless and being right on the river you can't get any better. My family enjoyed our stay. Had everything we needed to have a very comfortable stay.. was nice to unplug and enjoy the outdoors.. will most definitely being coming back to make more memories.
William B. Jul 2020
We enjoyed the sounds of the river and the great view from the deck. Only down side was the noise from the truck traffic. Over all a great place that we will stay at again.
Michelle B. Jul 2020
If you are looking to get away, this is a cute little house hanging over the river.
Valerie W. Jul 2020
The home was so nice and comfortable. The view of the river from the deck is breathtaking!
Tammy C. Jun 2020
The pictures don't lie! Perfect setting! The cottage has a beautiful view of the river and mountains from all the glass doors. Sitting out on the deck is so peaceful. Love the views of the river. The cottage was very clean and had very comfortable beds. The kitchen had everything you would need to cook. Only negative was no internet or cell service, but it was stated in the description, so it was no surprise. Just a couple miles up the road is the cute little town of Dillsboro. You can get good cell service there. It has some neat shops and good restaurants. We enjoyed our stay!
Linda P. Jun 2020
I totally loved this place!! Really hated to leave this morning!! Only thing I didn't like was the getting out into the road!! If you could just trim the bushes just a little. Of course that's minor..And the fact I had no internet lol minor again..View was totally amazing..just couldn't quit bragging about it ..Got wonderful pictures and shared on facebook..I would love to come back again soon..
Very relaxing place and wish I was still there.
Thanks for letting us go to your cabin

Location was perfect. The view to die for, the river sounds caused many afternoon naps. Perfect!
Stanley A. Nov 2019
The patio doors from all rooms to access the beautifull porch and incredibly beautifull river. Then the mountain view with the fall colors. To sum it up LOVED IT !!!!!!!!!!!
Mark D. Oct 2019
Convenient location and had everything I needed. But the driveway is hard to get out of. Lots of bushes blocking your view of the road
Stacy C. Oct 2019
cleanliness, view and location. Mattress in back bedroom needs replacing. Getting out of driveway onto road very difficult, because of speeding traffic. Not able to see to left, because of bushes along fence.
Manager response:
Hi, Stacy! We will be trimming back the bushes to assist with visibility. Thank you!
Jaime D. Jul 2019
We loved our stay here! The view from the porch was amazing! The home is small but was clean and comfortable and perfect for just the two of us. The central air was nice as well. The home is close to many attractions, as well as restaurants & craft beer places.
If you want to fly fish, kayak, canoe or float this is the area for you!
There is an outfitter just down the road.
Overall we loved our stay & the location and would love to stay there again in the future
Robin D. Jul 2019
