We had such a good time with our family. We loved hanging out at night by the fire. There were 2 bee nests that needed to be taken care of as they were new ones, but overall it was awesome views. The kitchen was supplied with what we needed and we didn't have any problems with the grill. We didn't want to leave.

Cottage is as advertised. Quality furnishings, comfortable beds, beautiful views. Close to Bryson City and Cherokee for services.
Took the grandkids fishing at a local trout pond in the morning and white water rafting in the afternoon.

The views were spectacular. The house was stocked with an ample amount of dinnerware, cookware and towel sets. Location of home was perfect for trips to the surrounding towns(Dillsboro, Cherokee, Franklin and Bryson City. Will book this home again.

We loved everything about this trip and the location, though it felt like a rollercoaster to get up the mountain it was absolutely stunning after getting there and looking around. Would do this location again!

Loved the cabin and furnishings. Beautiful scenery. Kitchen was well stocked, lots of room and comfortable beds. However, counter top appliances were not very clean and we had to rewatch some dishes before use. All in all, would return

We had the best time during our stay! The drive up the mountain took us by surprise but by the weeks end, we were pros! The view was amazing & we enjoyed the fire pit everynight! The cabin was decorated for christmas & we loved how well stocked it was. It was a much needed break from reality! We definitely recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a true mountain vacation experience!

This is the best rental I’ve ever stayed at. The views from both the front and back deck are STUNNING. One day all we did was sit on the deck and spend time together and we all agreed it was the best day of our trip. The cabin was furnished with every cooking appliance and gadget we needed, which was appreciated since we planned on staying in and cooking ourselves. I don’t recommend trying to drive up and finding the cabin for the first time at night. Our GPS wouldn’t take us the entire way to the cabin but luckily the host has sent us written directions. We’ve already started checking our calendars to book another trip to the cabin. I can’t recommend it enough.

This was an awesome location and great view of the mountains. The house itself is even better than the view. It was amazing and we had a great time. There we a couple of surprising issues, but they didn't ruin our trip. There was no welcome book or instructions of any kind related to the house. WIFI didn't work for two days (someone reset the router) and there was no can opener of any kind. No manual or electric can opener. It would also have been nice to know the gas grill was directly hooked up to the tank and how to work the awning. Communication with Vacasa was slow. I've rented from VRBO several times before, but this was my first experience with Vacasa. I'm always been able to reach someone quickly with VRBO, but it's not easy with Vacasa. Once I was able to connect with a local manager with Vacasa, the service was OUTSTANDING!!!
Manager response:
We apologize we have been difficult to reach due to a high call volume and appreciate your patience. We also greatly appreciate you providing us with the opportunity to assist you with your concerns during your stay. Thank you for choosing Vacasa!

Took my family to Whittier, NC for my 72nd Birthday. Oldest was me, youngest was 3. We all had a wonderful time. The weather was just right for us Floridians. We wanted to be here when the seasons were changing. While the ride to the cabin was adventurous to say the least, the cabin was everything that it was promised to be, and more. Beautiful views were always available. The house was immaculate and well equipped. We brought some of our own utensils and small appliances, but we left them in the boxes. Well equipped kitchen and the bedrooms were big and the king-size beds so comfortable. The TVs and the Internet worked perfect the entire time. Close for great day trips to Bryson City, Cherokee, Smokey Mountains, and Asheville. Made use of the fire pit three times. Loved sitting around toasting marshmallows and enjoying the beautiful nights with the moon shining down on mountains. Relaxing beyond believe. Loved every minute of the stay. Thank you for making such a beautiful and well-equipped cabin available for rent. It was so worth it and we will return.

Stunning views, gorgeous cabin, peaceful beyond words. Great mountain escape!

The view from the deck was spectacular. The cabin was roomy and clean with great furnishings. Nice and private with easy drives to Bryson City, GSMNP, NOC and even Asheville

The cabin was extremely cozy and we immediately felt right at home. The view was breathtaking and it was refreshing to wake up to 60 degree weather in the clouds. You could tell the owners were really thoughtful towards their guests as the kitchen was fully stocked with tools and utensils. Our kids also loved all of the board games. Our only recommendation would be that guests should be prepared for the winding and steep drive up towards the cabin. Being from Florida, we were not expecting that. But, overall, it was a wonderful experience and would return again. Thanks.
