Really enjoyed our stay. It was a beautiful location we were able to go to many parts of the Smokey Mountains and visit different attractions. The cabin was very clean and enjoyed having a washer and dryer to use. Our Dog really enjoyed running into the woods and it was vacation for all of us.

Location and privacy.
Johnny B. Oct 2021
Not much to say good about it
It was clean, good privacy, located just a few minutes from Cherokee

Lots of bad
No porch furniture at all
Second bath is nothing more than a closet toilet not even fit for small children
No view, maybe 50 ft in any direction
The master bedroom is a joke. Tv is sitting on a stool about a foot above the floor and if you touch it, it stops working. No bureau or table so you're living out of a suitcase sitting on the floor. One remote for both tvs.
Could go on but I hope you have the picture.
Manager response:

Family Jewel is a beautiful, spacious and clean accommodation, central to many attractions in the mountains. Thanks for hosting our family! Looking forward to renting this property again soon!

We wanted to stay near Bryson City to do The Smoky Mountain Railroad. This cabin was about 12 minutes from there, Cherokee, Sylva & anywhere we wanted to go. Clean & convenient. Hope to go back one day!

The Family Jewel provided us with quaint, comfortable accommodations.

The property is on a busy street but I could barely hear the traffic. It is great for a quick quaint getaway. I felt very peaceful and relaxed during my time there.

Great and quiet place to stay will stay again
Roger R. Jun 2021
Wonderful stay. Cabin is beautiful inside and out. Second time staying here. Will definitely be back.
Sue C. May 2021
Loved the porch, house nice. Glad they came and took care of the roach problem! Just need to be aware of how many people and days we are there. Ran out of supplies and they didn’t replace, we had to purchase. Second bathroom is to tiny, had to walk sideways to get in it. Poison oak needs attended to, coming up side steps on one end of the cabin. Was a nice get away. Thank you

Comfortable beds, all the kitchen stuff you need, I was able to bake muffins! What sold this cabin to us was the location - central to Cherokee, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sylva and Bryson City. Also since my dad can't sleep in bed, the 2 recliners really sold us on the place as well as the 2 bathrooms. A very nice home away from home.
Whitney J. Oct 2020
This cabin was very cozy and we liked the fact that there was some seclusion to it. It had everything we needed for our little getaway. I would definitely recommend staying here if you get the chance.
Rob B. Sep 2020
great place
Jimmy h. Sep 2020
this was nothing like the pictures. Very dark inside. If you need internet, it is out of date, constantly cutting out. Bathroom faucets leaked all day and night. Antique TV, tried to enjoy a fire outside but the extrrior lights cannot be shut off, so enjoying a fire was impossible. The traffic never stops, cant see it but right below the driveway.

Was cute and quiet. Great for a peacefull getaway. You can here the creek across the street, which I loved and found so relaxing!!!

Everything was great 😊
Scott L. Oct 2019
We loved the quiet, peaceful atmosphere the Family Jewell offered. We did find the pillows were musty, and my wife washed them. The placemats were dirty, and she washed them too. Other than those two items, the cabin was lovely, and the stay enjoyable. The satellite TV was excellent. The heat was very comfortable because it was very chilly when we arrived. The cabin warmed up quickly because of its superior insulation. It was very well-built. We also loved nature, heard awesome noises like the owls, geese, and some unknown sounds in the night, perhaps a deer or bear (who knows). Thanks for a pleasant stay. <3

It was a great place to stay and very clean
Charles H. Aug 2019
Everything you need plus the right combination of close to it all and far enough away. I was there for work and wanted a quiet retreat to escape to. Family jewel provided it all.
Roger R. Jul 2019
Great location. Very clean. Can't wait to return. Husband and I were very impressed. Had a wonderful time.
Julie A. Jul 2019
This place was exactly as described. It was very well supplied and comfortable. We enjoyed the seclusion it offered. We also really appreciated the place to park our motorcycle out of the rain.
Alyssa G. Jul 2019
My boyfriend & I loved everything about it! The master bath was a bit noisy, but we had no other complaints. The home was cozy & welcoming! Would recommend & would definitely stay again!

We had a great time. The area is great and very secluded. The driveway is a little steep, but we had no issues. We would definitely stay here again.
