We absolutely loved this place, the hot tub, the firepit, the AMAZING views!! We brought our pups and they had a great time in the yard. You will want to get your groceries before the hike up the mountain because once you are there you will not want to leave!

The view from this cabin was exceptional. Also a great location for hiking and close to the blue ridge parkway. We enjoyed walking around Waynesville and Sylva both a short drive from the cabin.

The awesome views are worth the 20 minute ride up! Highly recommend this well maintained cozy mountain retreat. We would definitely book this property again.

The cabin was beautiful and the views were incredible. The staff was incredibly helpful any time I called for questions. The only reason this wasn’t a 5-star review is that- for a 5 night stay- there were only 2 trash bags, 2 rolls of toilet paper, 2 dishwasher tabs. We went to the store ahead time to prevent having to go up and down the mountain, as it is not a quick, down the street trip. This forced us to have to go to the store, which took about an hour and a half to get toilet paper, paper towels and dishwasher tabs. I would have appreciated a heads up on the lack of accommodations in regards to cleaning supplies/toiletries. Additionally, there was a dishwasher full of dishes that we weren’t sure were clean or dirty. Considering all of the COVID regulations and that we are getting charged an arm and a leg for cleaning fees, I would have thought those things would have been addressed. Other than those things, it was an overall pleasant stay.

This is a great home. The view and elevation were spectacular. We were able to watch migrating raptors as well as the stars!

This place is simply amazing. You cannot beat the view. The pictures associated with the listing are accurate. We highly recommend this as the perfect anniversary or honeymoon getaway. 10 out of 10 rating. Advice, buy your groceries before you head up the mountain the drive to the house is lengthy (20 to 30 minutes).

The view is amazing!! The house was well maintained with a peaceful and cozy atmosphere. And did I mention the view was breathtaking?
Mary R. Jul 2020
The view was breathtaking. Lots of comforts indoors and out. This was a special place and we hope to go back,

The location was great—just beautiful and peaceful. The house was outfitted with about anything you could want. Just a couple of negatives. The TV didn’t work so we sent a message informing of that—no response. We found an opened (and partially eaten) package of donuts under the bed in the loft, and it was clear no one has cleaned under it for a very long time—the dust was an inch thick. The tub drain in that attached bath was almost completely blocked, leading to a very slippery tub floor as the water backed up.
Manager response:
Hi Julia, thank you for sharing your feedback. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement regarding some specific cleanliness issues with the home. We will pass your feedback to our housekeeping team for future consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

Had the best time! Cabin was as advertised and in a perfect secluded spot. We had 5-6 inches of snow overnight and the next day and made the drive somewhat of a challenge if your not used to driving in the snow. 4wd definitely needed in winter

This place is in the middle of no where at 5400ft elavation and it is amazing. It does take about 25min from the main road to get there by a narrow whindy rock road. But even covered in snow with an AWD SUV I never felt unsafe. The hot tub is only big enough for two. The grill worked great as did the DTV and WiFi. Not much cell coverage. the view was amazing.
Rayda A. Jan 2020
We loved our stay at the cabin! Everything was very clean and nicely decorated. The kitchen had absolutely everything needed. It is very remote (20-30 minute drive up the mountain), but we liked being away from everything.

great place loved the weather and the view

We had a lovely time at this very private mountain home and what a great view! The kitchen had everything I needed to cook with... I brought a few utensils and things from home just in case but didn’t need them. The home was way up the mountain, took us about 30 minutes to get to the top. We arrived after dark and it was foggy, we could only see about 3 feet in front of us and it was slow but we managed. I would plan to arrive during daylight hours next time. We loved the view and how private the location is. We enjoyed the gas fireplace, the hot tub, and the camp fire area. Everything a mountain getaway should be. My only complaint is the beds were older inner spring mattresses that were squeaky and soft/not supportive.

There was nothing better than sitting in the hot tub and looking up at a million stars. The cabin was comfortable and extremely secluded.

Spruce Patch boasts a beautiful view over the valley and mountains beyond. The public space is large, open and well appointed. the beds are comfortable. The upstairs loft if warm, and we opened the windows to maintain a comfortable temperature up there. Since thee nighttime temperature was in the low 60s, this was not a problem. The room is open to the view and to the downstairs, so it's not for people who need lots of privacy or darkness.

Loved the Spruce Patch cabin. The views were beautiful from the deck. The privacy of the cabin location added to the relaxation and peacefulness. The cabin was cute and nicely decorated.

One of the most amazing views!!!

The cabin not only had an incredible view but was very well equipped. We thoroughly enjoyed out time.
