Location was good, road was a little challenging.

Everything was absolutely perfect! Can’t wait to visit again.

We had a very pleasant time in this house. It is well equipped and has everything you need and the perfect space for 6 adults. Teresa keeps the place impeccable. She has a very beautiful personality. She welcomes you and doesn't bother you during your stay. We would have liked to say goodbye to her but we didn't see her again. We enjoyed the jacuzzi but it would be good if the water temperature rose a little more. The river is beautiful but unfortunately we didn't fish anything, we swam in it and it was very rewarding, it's not very deep, but I would be careful if I took my children. In general, we spent some very pleasant days and we would definitely rent this house again.

Very good, very nice

The cabin was very clean cleaner than any we've stayed in and we travel five to six times a year!!!
The last mile and a half getting back to it is a bit treacherous but it's beautiful once you get there! It does have some road noise but it tends to die down in the evening. Will definitely come back here again!!
Terri M. Jul 2022
The rental is beside the water with beautful views out every window

This home is wonderful. Very clean and was so comfortable. The location was great. A little out of the way but quiet and relaxing. A 15 minute drive to Bryson City. The owner’s directions to the house were spot on. I would advise you to follow those. Everyone had a wonderful time. Brother in law did not bring his fishing gear and we came by air from the west coast so disappointed that we were or able to try fishing. Maybe next time.

Really enjoy staying here - house is clean, we’ll set up, with a fire pit, grill, and hot tub for everyone to enjoy. This was a business trip this time, but will definitely be back with my family!

We had booked this stay with VACASA and pleasantly surprised with the size of the cabin. Cabin served us good. I an d my wife loved the space. We had everything to cook there. The view of the wood was amazing and smokey in the morning which made it perfect. The only suggestion I have for VACASA is to put more direction signs as you come off the main street. It would be better for the navigation during the night. Overall A plus
Manager response:
Rahul, we are so glad you and your wife enjoyed the cabin and location during your stay. We appreciate your suggestions for the additional signs and will pass this on to the local manager. We look forward to hosting you again soon! Thank you for choosing Vacasa.

The general location worked out for our vacation in the area. We spent more time around the BRP than GSMNP. The only thing that prevented a 5-star rating was the 1+ plus gravel road to the house. It wasn't too bad, just a little bumpy for our passenger car (Toyota Avalon). The hot tub felt great after hiking every day. We did forget something at the house and we were able to just walk across the foot bridge to retrieve it. Overall, the house was great and fit our needs perfectly.
John C. Oct 2021
The only reason I didn’t give this property five stars is the driveway. It’s single car width, gravel and very bumpy.

Other than that, the house has a great layout with a beautiful porch. The road noise from across the river isn’t that bad. We enjoyed our stay.

Place was perfect everything you need and more.

Close to everything, 1 day didn't rain in week we stayed. Good fishing nice to hangout on dock

The worst part of this house is that we have to leave so soon.. This is our last night in the house. I’m typing this from the couch in front of the tv, right side. I read through the reviews before we came. Some of them were very convincing and had me thinking that maybe it wasn’t what we had hoped for. Fortunately, that is the furthest from the truth. The fact is, my husband and I felt more at home here than we do at our own house. When we arrived, it took us about 10 minutes to figure out the house (light switches, doors, rooms, etc). After that, it was literally four entire days of relaxation. This house has everything you could possibly need aside from food and clothing. Bring what you want to wear and eat for the week. That’s it. They provide everything you need to make literally whatever you want. Skillet, Grill, Cups, Plates, Silverware, Dish Detergent, LAUNDRY DETERGENT, Toilet paper, Shampoo, Conditioner, TOOTHPICKS… Literally everything else you need. I was amazed. On the first night, there was a lady cutting the grass. She cut the grass practically every day that we were there. But it was never at an unusual hour, never an inconvenience, and the landscaping is GORGEOUS!! You can tell she really puts her heart into it. Not only does she make the surrounding area look incredible, she truly watches the place. On the second night, I was grilling on the porch. Listening to music, sizzle from the grill, and the rumbles fighting for dominance from the river and Hwy 19. Quietly, I heard “ma’am. Maaaaaa’aaaam??” I don’t think I’ve been scared like that in a long time.. It was the neighbor coming up to let me know that there was a thunderstorm coming in and they were expecting it to hail. She was coming to offer a section of her carport for our motorcycles. She literally moved her vehicle to allow us to park our bikes under. Speaking of motorcycles, my husband and I did trailer our bikes to the house. Any road is motorcycle accessible, if you know what you’re doing.. On the third day, we rode our bikes to Bryson City for a couple of hours. It is August and SUPER hot, so we decided to find some water. Conveniently, the house is located at the end of a hanging bridge off of the highway. My husband and I stopped at the beginning of the bridge and decided that I could walk the bridge to the house to get our swimsuits…. When I got back to the motorcycle, the neighbor had followed me back across the bridge to the bikes to make sure I wasn’t a thief stealing things from the house. I literally love this lady at this point!!!! All in all, my husband and I have decided that this house will be a traditional spot and I am SUPER excited about the future!! The area is beautiful, the house is the most perfect thing you could ever ask for, the people are amazing, and your trip will be perfect!! Push reserve!!! You won’t be sorry!!

Nice quaint home, all you need for a great vacation home to get away. Well kept, nice and clean. Great place to stay! Hope to be back next year.
Michael Z. May 2021
Rented this home as lodging for my daughters graduation from WCU and to do a little trout fishing. The home was great - next door neighbor was very nice and kindly allowed us access to the river from her property -otherwise access to the water would have been difficult. Loved the porch/swing, had beautiful weather. Had a great weekend and made great memories! Thank you!!
Diane J. May 2021
Thank you for sharing your home. We had family members who have limited mobility and the home was good for their needs. It was clean and had all we needed to enjoy meals at the house and long talks on the deck. Comfortable beds and plenty of seating for all 5 of us.
Ronnie T. May 2021
This home is beautiful, clean and welcoming. It is close to everything, waterfalls, Cherokee, Bryson City, and Sylva. The only problem we had was the traffic noise. It is constant all day and all night. Since the house is sitting right off of a main thru fare.
Jordan E. Mar 2021
Wonderful home
David B. Dec 2020
This was a wonderful home, clean, private and spacious. Will definitely be booking again.

This cabin was very nice. Nicely decorated, clean; the perfect size for my family. The property was very nice and we took advantage of the outdoor patio and fire pit. My husband enjoyed napping on the porch swing! We also enjoyed the Barkers Creek Bridge which was accessible from the side of the property. There is road noise but we are from the city so it was something we could easily tune out. There is a train track just behind the house but we only saw one train (engine only), the entire trip.

Our only complaint was the lack of access to the river. We rented this property because we had intentions to go fishing. My husband and children were all disappointed in this. When you see the pictures provided they are very misleading. The picture is taken from two properties down. Both properties next to this one have water access. So if you are looking to fish from the property, this will not be the place for you. This is the reason we didn't give the property 5 stars. If the water/fishing weren't a focal point for our trip then this would be a moot point.

I tried to find a means to contact property management to see if there was an alternative access point but could not find any means to do so.

Overall we still had a great trip. We took advantage of the numerous hiking trails and access points to the waterfalls in the area. And even saw a bear during one of our hikes! Make sure you grab trail maps before you head out.

We did a jump over to Hendersonville, which has great shops and one of my favorite wineries. If you love wine, visit Saint Paul Mountain Vineyards. You can make a day of it and also visit Burntshirt Vineyards which is only a few miles from Saint Paul, but I prefer Saint Paul!

We love this part of North Carolina! Every time we visit it just confirms this is going to be our future home.

Fully stocked kitchen and everything in great shape!
Adam G. Jul 2020
My brother in law and I took our 9-year-old boys for a week of no electronics and outdoor activities. The house was clean and well furnished. The boys enjoyed playing in the river but it was a bit tricky to access. The train wasn't an issue as I only remember it coming by once while we were there and that was around 11 am. The last mile to the house on the one-lane gravel road wasn't so bad but you need to go slow as there are lots of blind curves. The Wifi worked well but there is no cell reception at the house. You can get reception once you are halfway up the gravel road. Overall it was a great stay and there are lots to do in the area. We kayaked down the Tuck river and went whitewater rafting down the Nantahala River which was amazing, probably the nicest river I've seen. We also went guided fly fishing in Nantahala National Forest in a creek which was beautiful and fun. I tried fly fishing in the river behind the house without any luck. Great stay. Can't wait to go back.

This house was perfect for our family trip to celebrate birthdays. There was plenty of room and everything we needed. It was close enough to a store to get anything we didn't bring with us. The drive way is long and gravel. Our GPS took us to the house but on the other side of the river. It was easy to get to once we crossed the river. Overall I give this house a 5 out of 5 rating. Thank you for a great time.
Danielle M. Mar 2020
My friends and I enjoyed our stay at your mountain house! We were there a week and enjoyed it very much and we plan on staying again soon!
Glenda V. Nov 2019
House itself is very nice with very comfortable beds. The road into the house is horrible and the major road on other side of river causes a considerable amount of road noise in the house, especially in the master bedroom.
ANDERSON E. Oct 2019
Loved the location and the comfortable accommodations. The gravel road was daunting the first time coming in but after that it was just a part of getting to the house. Would have liked to have cable TV in the bedrooms instead of just DVD capability but other than that a beautiful and well maintained change from the hotels near the Casino.
Deborah T. Sep 2019
The whole house is Awsome
Jackie C. Aug 2019
The house amenities and location to nearby tourist destinations was great!
Amy B. Aug 2019
This home was perfect! Clean, updated, with everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. It was spacious and cozy. We loved grilling out on the gas grill in the evenings. Follow the directions that are sent, GPS is confusing, the road was steep, but my AWD vehicle handled it fine. I would highly recommend this home for families or groups.

We loved our stay at Trout Landing in Whittier. This house was beautifully decorated and well stocked with great kitchen/cooking accessories. It was very neat and clean! Loved the hot tub! Has both Charcoal & Propane Grills. Loved sitting outside on the porch with the nice table and chairs, porch swing, and beautiful wood benches! The front yard had railroad tracks which provided a nice backdrop for pictures as did the back yard with a private entrance to the beautiful swinging bridge over the Tuckasegee River! The fire pit was a hit where we roasted hot dogs and marshmellows. We enjoyed fishing and relaxing. The nearby fresh fruit and veggie stands were awesome as was the flea market. Dillsboro is a short drive with great places to eat out! This house comes equipped with linens and towels which is excellent and even soaps, shampoos, and paper supplies to get your trip started, which was very appreciated. You may want to bring a Firestick for the TV and movie viewing, as we didn't have much success with the Direct TV, but the house did have some movies and a DVD player provided as well as books & games. We loved our stay!
