The drive up was a little intimidating but the view when you get there was worth it.
Bill L. Jun 2022
Nice home with a million dollar view. Would visit again.
Adam S. May 2022
The pictures don’t do it justice for the view; we spent our honeymoon here and we loved it. The hot tub was great and we lacked nothing. The only two complaints would be the DVD player was only in black and white (we were able to just use streaming service in the bedroom) and the beds weren’t the most comfy, but that’s just being picky. Overall, it was great and we’d definitely go back.

The view from all sides of the cabin is sheer beauty. The comforts in the cabin, the amount of blankets and pillows provided were abundant. The hot tub was very clean and perfect for an evening under the stars. The drive up was fun but one must have 4 wheel capabilities. Bring food for the entire time you plan to stay because you may not want to leave once you get there, the cabin offers games, books and television. We plan to come back to this location in the next 2 years.

Long story short, the property was not ready at checkin and was not clean. The housekeeping staff was removing ice from the hot tub when we arrived after checkin. There was hair in the sheets, black grime in the toilets etc. I emailed Vacasa within 45 minutes of arrival and got no response until after we checked out. The contract I signed said the use the contact information in my confirmation email, which was the Vacasa email.

When I did get a phone call from a general manager, it went south quickly when I mentioned my concerns. She said she would call back with a resolution. Instead I got an email that Vacasa sent my contact information to the housekeeping staff even though we've already checked out? I feel my privacy has been violated.

TLDR: Vacasa will hand out your phone number after checkout. Your rental may not be ready or clean. Never again
Manager response:
Brady, thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to provide feedback on your experience. We are so sorry that your check-in was delayed by a bit while our housekeepers finished up and we are disappointed to hear that the completed clean was not up to our high standards. We will address these concerns with our local housekeeping team. To clarify, the local manager contacted you by phone to gather information on furnishings in the home that were found damaged after your departure. We apologize for the discomfort this may have caused, and we assure you that guest information is kept private as our guest’s safety is our top priority. We hope we may have the opportunity in the future to better impress you for a truly pleasurable vacation getaway.

Cozy and very clean!! Only thing is kitchen needs to be more supplied with linen (ie dish cloths and towels for cleaning the kitchen)
Brittney B. Dec 2021
If you want your kids to get bit by spiders in the middle of the night, or want to have problems breathing because of all the dust, stay here. We asked for pillow cases multiple times and couldn’t get anyone to bring them to us. Both children got bit in the middle of the night in the loft area. Pulled the beds out and the amount of spider webs was horrendous. Was told someone from the local office would call us about our concerns and never got a call. First time and last time dealing with vacasa.
Manager response:
Brittney, we sincerely apologize for any frustration and strain that this situation may have caused you. We appreciate you bringing this to our immediate attention and allowing our team to step in and assist. We take these matters very seriously and act within our protocol to promptly address pest claims. Our local manager allowed pest control to enter and service the home immediately after notifying us, preventing a future occurrence with spiders. We hope for another chance to host you in the future for a well-deserved stay with a far more satisfying outcome.

This was a great 2 night stay at 3000 feet. The views are amazing, and the place was spotless.
We highly recommend staying here if you want to get away and enjoy nature, and quiet!
Stephanie L. F. Jun 2021
Heaven on Earth lived up to its name. The view was well worth the drive up the mountain, which was not as bad as the previous reviews led us to believe. The house was well supplied and very clean and we would highly recommend it.
Verena R. Apr 2021
Loved the location of this home. Had everything we needed. The views were phenomenal. Our only request would be for a later check out on Sunday. There was some confusion regarding the trash. Via email we were to put trash bags in the containers outside. However, there was a note on the fridge and on the cover of the details notebook that stated we would be charged $40 if we didn't take our trash to the Recycle center in Bryson City. Well that doesn't open until 1:00. Our checkout was 10:00. See our dilemma? A noon check out would have been much preferred. Overall a very nice home; everything functioned as it should and would stay there again.
Kimberly W. Jan 2021
Beautiful cabin with awesome views but you really do need 4 wheel drive to get there.
Greg G. Oct 2020
Spent five days here for Anniversary. Well appointed property. The road is steep and definitely having four wheel drive truck was helpful. Water pressure from the well was not great but tolerable. There was also a good bit of trash below the back deck that appeared to have been thrown by previous guests that was lousy.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Greg! We are happy to hear you enjoyed our home and we apologize for the trash. Please note our 24-hour customer service line is here to assist at all times and would have sent someone over to clean up the trash. Thank you again for your review. We hope to host you again soon!

What an amazing spot! It’s a perfect place to relax and enjoy mountain sights. Love it!!
Dwight F. Jun 2020
Cabin is nice & secluded! A teen black bear came by & paid us a visit the evening before we left, but we stayed up on the porch 😁. Had a great time.
Sarah G. Jan 2020
Enjoyed our weekend getaway in January. Like other reviews, a little scary ride up the road. We got our groceries and headed up the mountain. Kitchen was fully stocked with equipment. A home away from home with beautiful scenery! Enough room for a whole family!
Kelsey G. Dec 2019
This cabin is perfect for a relaxing getaway. The view is incredible, and you’re still close to lots of stores and activities even though the cabin is very secluded, it’s a great combination. You will need 4- or all-wheel drive for sure, but that view and seclusion is totally worth it. We had a lovely time and would return without hesitation.
Susie M. Dec 2019
Great little cabin, tucked away from the city. No joke about the driveway. It rained and I'm so glad we had 4-wheel drive. Wouldn't have made it up without it. The cabin was very clean and tidy. Water pressure is low, but that's expected up a mountain. Beautiful panoramic view from the porch. Our family of four enjoyed every minute.
Manager response:
Hi Susie, we're so glad you enjoyed your stay in our home! We appreciate your feedback regarding the driveway and water pressure. We hope to host you again soon!
Nelson G. Dec 2019
The views from this cabin are amazing!!
Michael W. Nov 2019
Many times you don't know if the pictures of a vacation spot are really all that accurate or not. I can say that the house and the view are even better than the pictures. On top of that I felt that Vacasa's customer service was excellent. They picked up the phone and answered all of my questions.
Wren C. Nov 2019
The views were amazing! The home was comfortable and clean. No frills, but what we needed.
Amy M. Nov 2019
The view is amazing. The hot tub was super relaxing. Trying to follow the street signs was difficult but it was a nice place
David S. Oct 2019
The cabin was beautiful with an amazing view.
Matthew H. Sep 2019
Privacy and silence
Brian M. Aug 2019
Quiet, (except for the excessively barking dog), no neighbors, clean, relaxing cabin with a beautiful view of the mountains.
Robert L. Jul 2019
Have stayed up that way several times and this cabin offered the prettiest view of any I’ve stayed in. I enjoyed the drive up, my wife was terrified....definitely need 4-wheel drive, especially when its wet.
Would absolutely stay again!
Richard D. Jul 2019
Beautiful cabin on a private lot. We celebrated a romantic anniversary weekend in the hot tub, grilling out, reading, and enjoying the views. Inside, all the furnishings were rustic and modern and very comfy. The place was super clean. Best cabin we've ever stayed in!
Ryan P. May 2019
Beautiful house, beautiful scenery. I may try to stay again if I get over my fear of the drive up the mountain.
