Everything about this placed we loved it

If you are looking for a quiet getaway that truly gives the experience of living near the top of a mountain, but with all the amenities, this is the place for you. The only sounds were the wind in the trees, the stream in the small cove below, birds, and an occasional rooster from a home far below us. The only lights at night were from one home far away on the opposite side of the cove, fireflies and stars. Home/area is central to many attractions and is a great jump off point. Gas stations and river tubing are right at the bottom of the cove road. Major groceries were a short drive away. The private road up to the house has excellently maintained pavement but is 'very' steep. This is not the place to go if you are looking for gentle strolls after dinner, but the trade off is the view up and down the mountain and watching the ever changing clouds.

The cabin is exactly as shown in the photos, which was a very positive experience for us! The cabin was clean upon arrival! The road leading to the cabin has a steep incline and has 2 hairpin curves/narrow road so take it easy. Our 2 Versas/Honda Fit did just fine!! The hot tub was clean and in good working order as well as the gas grill. The pool table was awesome but needs chalk/powder, none was available and the tips on the cue sticks could use replacing, but a good time was had by all!!In the kitchen there was an abundance of plates, etc. There needs to be a replenishment of the pots/pans though. We managed. For coffee lovers there is no Keurig if you are use to that but there is a new Mr. Coffee! The beds/pillows were great!! The towels were clean and there were plenty but not the soft/cuddly kind. The washer door needs to be adjusted so it will close, we put a load of towels in before we left and could not get the door closed!! (It is a stack in the closet) For those of you that want to know if there are any condiments/seasoning (salt/pepper,etc) available in the cabin , there are not. They provide a roll of paper towels, 1 roll of toilet paper in the bathrooms, one garbage bag and travel size shampoo, conditioner and hand soap. If you want to cook, grill out, etc. I would bring what you need with you. The closest grocery store, $ Tree, etc. is in Sylva. None of the above info is in any way meant to be negative, just useful information you may want to have. We loved the cabin, we loved the hot tub, we loved the fire pit, we loved the upstairs game room, we loved sitting on the deck, grilling out and watching the beautiful sunsets!! The view is amazing!!! It was just a wondrous 9 days for us and you are so close to amazing things to do for day trips if you so choose!! I am giving it 4 stars because of how difficult it was to be able to talk to a "real" person prior to and after making the reservation!! Having to call several different numbers and being on hold forever and then finally getting someone that lives in California and or Florida and asking them specifics about the cabin and not getting the info you requested until over a week later is not what I consider good customer service, especially when you are trying to make a decision about a vacation rental. We are use to being able to send a message or phone call to someone that actually knows the property and get a immediate response or at least a response within 24 hours. I know that is how Vacasa is set up but for me it is not user friendly. I almost did not reserve with them because of that!! I did however get in touch with a lady named Lynn Maleno that was so helpful! I am happy that we did because all was well and we had a great time, but my experience prior to our arrival, the reservation process was not a pleasant one. THE CABIN HOWEVER WAS AWESOME!!!

PS The Wifi worked great for us. My daughter had several work zoom calls, we had 3 cell phones and 2 tablets. The very first night it kept disconnecting but I unplugged the modem as well as the leads for the phone and dsl and waited for about 15 minutes and made sure they were all plugged in tightly and for 8 days it was just fine!! My husband and I have T-Mobile and there was no service....My daughter has Credo and she was able to make calls.receive calls/texts from the cabin. We were able to access the Internet and use the apps on our phones but were not able to call in/out or receive texts!! There is a phone in the cabin though if you do have an emergency, etc.

Great house to bring my kids to a nice weekend of hiking and grilling out. Pool table and hot tub really made it fun!

We would like to thank the Vacasa Property Management team for sending the detail information to ensure our stay was in order. Whittier Cabin is a fantastic home with plenty of space for our group, modern kitchen and well stocked. The home was in a great location and close to downtown Dillsboro where we enjoyed a night out at the local restaurants. The view is beyond words and home offers a nice hot tub where we enjoyed relaxing at night and staring up at the clear night sky with tons of stars. The upstairs playroom with a pool table was perfect entertainment for our adult children. The only complaint would be that all the trash bins were full from the prior tenant due to a birthday party which left no room for our one trash bag from the weekend. We will be back!

This cabin is super cute and cozy. I loved everything but two things. The WiFi isn’t the best, which is fine because we didn’t stay on our phones all trip. Next, there was a TON of lady bugs in the home. I wasn’t too bothered because it was a lady bug, I called to find out why. Apparently during this time of year they come inside. I’m from the coast so I had no idea about this. I would definitely recommend.

We loved the privacy, the decor, the view, and the hot tub.
Gary B. Sep 2020
The cabin was wonderful, Loved the fact that it is secluded and had wonderful mountain views. The upstairs game room and separate den for kids were perfect. Close to GSMNP, Ashville, Blue Ridge Pkwy.

views were amazing and so quiet
Kathy H. Aug 2020
I wanted a cabin experience and that’s exactly what I received , I was very impressed with the furniture / decor to sum it up I LOVED IT , now what I didn’t really appreciate was that we paid a cleaning fee yet i was asked to take the linen off thr beds and the used towels and take them to the laundry , BUT PUT A LOAD INTO THE WASHER ... I was also asked to wash , dry and place all dishes / pots Into it’s place before leaving , because I’m a decent person the dishes would have been washed any how , but to ask and I’ve paid 139 cleaning fee was a little disturbing. The house keeper wasn’t that tidy , upon arrival and putting away food , there was a moth inside the freezer , so yes I cleaned that ,. Other than my issue with the healthy cleaning fee , yet I’m having to clean the cabin itself was wonderful ...

Very nice place. We really had a good time but smoke alarm kept beeping tried to change batteries and alarm went off.
Manager response:
We apologize for the annoyance you experienced and will look into the smoke detector. Thank you for staying with us!
Evelyn G. Aug 2020
We enjoyed our stay. Home was very clean. The only cons were the trash cans were full so we had to take our trash to local dump. Very inconvenient because we were loaded down with luggage. Also the grill tank was empty so we had to use oven instead of grill. Will stay here again.

Gorgeous view, beautiful, clean and clean house. Great place for family vacation

Loved everything great trip
Mitzi M. Jul 2020
We loved everything about this house! The view is amazing and the house was perfect for our family retreat. It was a little hard to find, but worth it when we got there. I suggest making sure you know how to turn off the security alarm, though, as we did not see the instructions about that and ended up setting it off. That aside, it was the perfect get-away.
Jonathan W. Jun 2020
Place was very nice clean and very spacious. We had fun it was quite and no one bothered us the whole trip. Definitely wouldn’t mind staying there again.
Franscina G. May 2020
The layout of the Cabin.
Edel B. Mar 2020
Overall has a great experience but the WiFi was almost non-existent while also having virtually no cell service. The majority of the baking pans in the kitchen were disgusting and caked with grease from previous people. They had a bad smell to them. Hot tub was a great size and worked well
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, Edel. We strive for a standard of excellence in ensuring the home is clean and accommodating for our guests. If there are any concerns or areas in need of additional attention, we hope to be notified so we can make sure any issues are addressed. We look forward to hosting you for a great stay in the future.

The cabin had plenty of space for two families. We cooked every night and the kitchen had all we needed to enjoy great dinners together. The pool table comes with a great ping pong tabletop so you can play both games. We did and had fun with both! The location is great for reaching so many towns and trails in the area. Our longest drive was an hour to go skiing at Chataloochee. The cabin was new and beautiful! Great hot tub and a nice wood burning fireplace. We highly recommend!
Lesley K. Dec 2019
Was a great home , the hot tub with the view was amazing !!
Amy B. Dec 2019
This house had endless beds and total mountain charm. Not sure who enjoyed our weekend more: the adults or the kids. We hope to be back.
Amanda W. Oct 2019
The house was beautiful and clean. The setting was perfect. We enjoyed the quiet, but also liked being near some outdoor activities that we found locally.
Kyle S. Sep 2019
This property was great. Plenty of room for everyone. The pictures show this cabin smaller than it really is. Great layout, plenty of kitchen supplies. Hot tub was awesome. Very quite secluded mountain views. Close to town.
Allison B. Aug 2019
Great location, secluded mountain side retreat. Proximity to all things adventurous was awesome. Definitely would stay here again!
Mack L. Jul 2019
Clean cabin with ample beds and a good view.
Paula M. Jul 2019
The home itself was perfect for our family vacation. The only things we didn't care for was the steep, steep, steep driveway and the fact that it wasn't really close to much. Everything tended to be about 20-30 minute drive in either direction. The home itself had a lot of room and was extremely clean.
Heather G. Jul 2019
Loved the quietness of the mountains; not too far to several nearby towns.
The house was clean and well kept.
The final road is very steep.
The hot tub was relaxing, but views would be better if trees were trimmed back.

Candace S. Jul 2019
Perfect view and quiet place
