Had a great time! Great location. Close to many activities, but still quiet with a secluded feel. Clean with very comfortable beds. Loved the fire pit!

The place is nice and when I reported some issues, I was told that it will be addressed in one way or another to my satisfaction. Although it has not been resolved yet, every time I call, they seem to be responsive. I also have received follow up feedback.
Manager response:
We are very sorry you weren't able to use fireplace. It is always our goal for our guests to be able to use everything the home has to offer. We hope that the refund that you were given has helped with some resolution for the issue you experienced.

You never know if what you see in the pics = reality, but in this case it was better. The cabin was clean and tidy. No funky smells which is super important for me and my allergies. The only thing I would say is there is no cable. There is antenna tv (which is obviously not high def) and you need subscriptions to Netlfix or any other media outlets. Someone apparently left their HBOMax log in and one other platform so it was not a problem. It is a beautiful, peaceful place for sure! You won't be disappointed! (The only side note is the short sweet donkey has an abscessed tooth :( )
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Paula. The cable does get a little spotty in the mountains just like cell service and the internet. We apologize if it was a frustration. Hopefully we'll see you again!

The cabin exceeded our expectations. Beautiful inside and outside. The cabin had everything that we needed (e.g., plates, cutlery, pots, and pans, etc.). Very quiet; close to the GSMNP Visitors Center and other areas. We will definitely return!!

One of the nicest small cabins (2 Bedrooms) you can rent in the Cherokee area. As anyone knows that rents cabins, you'll usually notice where the shortcuts or cheap decisions were made in the small things, but not here. Great decorations, great fixtures and appliances, great pillows, TV's etc etc. The setting feels like your away from it all in the Forrest and Mountains, yet you're only 5 minutes from Harrah's and everything in Cherokee!

We really enjoyed our stay. The cabin had everything we needed plus peace and quiet. We made good use of the outdoor furniture every evening. We will definitely return again.

It was still close to to town. The log home is quaint and modern on the inside. Very clean.

Our stay was everything we were looking for. Clean, cozy, plenty of privacy. Staff was available and ready to handle any inconvenient that came up. Have no problem recommending or revisiting these properties.

Perfect country atmosphere, great amenities.
Tammy H. Nov 2020
We loved the ease of entry to the cabin and all the quiet and peacefulness of the property. Very clean with all the amenities. We would definitely stay here again.
Bette M. Nov 2020
We loved the location of this cozy cabin...tucked in the woods with rolling hills all around. It was within close proximity to everything we wanted to see. The surroundings were peaceful and serene...with the exception of the tour helicopter operating out of Cherokee. It only flew overhead a couple of times a day, so it was tolerable but irritating! The firepit and outdoor chairs were perfect...we enjoyed a campfire every day of our stay. The beds were very comfortable. The flat screen TV’s were nice. The cabin was well-equipped...just be aware that this particular unit (The Cove) does not have a dishwasher, so our cooking was kept to a minimum as I do not do handwashed dishes while on vacation 🤣😂!! It would have been helpful if instructions to the TVs, fireplace, washer/dryer, etc had been included in the cabin’s binder, but the owner and Vacasa Mgmt were very attentive to our needs and responded immediately to assist with anything we needed. We did have a couple of cleaning issues upon check-in but once again the team responded immediately and refunded our cleaning fee. We cannot say enough about how great the owner and Vacasa management (Ashley) were during our stay. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have already booked 2 weeks in another unit for next year!

Awesome cabin! I would love here if I could
Susan A. Sep 2020
The cabin is secluded in a lovely wooded setting, yet close to a grocery store and just minutes from the national park, where we spent each day hiking. All the essentials were provided and the cabin was quite comfortable.
Elliott L. Sep 2020
This was the most comfortable, homey, perfect size place I have ever stayed. I could have lived there forever. The only life I saw in 4 days were 3 wild turkeys. It was more than perfect. Thanks
paul m. Sep 2020
We had a great time at the cabin it was located within distance of everything very quiet we had one issue which really wasn’t an issue there wasn’t a toaster in the house and I mentioned it to the office and within two hours we had a brand new toaster in the house tell me how great that is we really enjoyed the stay and the company we will use them again.
Cathy B. Aug 2020
It was a beautiful and peaceful place nestled on a mountain. Loved sitting in the swing on front porch. Will share and stay again.
Home P. Aug 2020
This place is well equipped for a family of 4 with two beautiful bedrooms. The kitchen had all we needed except for a toaster. We were missing the smart TV in the living room.
Otherwise, it was just perfect for a "being away" vacation.
Thank you. It was a pleasure with no hitch or problem
Manager response:
Thank you for your review! We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at this beautiful home. We apologize for any confusion: this home does not have a SmartTV included but does have cable. We hope to host you again, soon!
Sam S. Jan 2020
I needed to be in the area for work for several days and this charming property was an excellent perch for a working stay. The covered porch was very nice and the property was well equipped with everything one would need. The pair of llamas and the little donkey that came across the pasture every afternoon for a visit was a definite bonus!
Jennifer M. Jan 2020
CHARM, so much Charm, to this cabin both inside and out!!! Tucked into the most beautiful spot! I made us feel incredibly private in our space yet the warmth of surrounding cabins Much farther up on the hills gave it a unique comfort! I Loved the early morning with coffee of the porch as the “smoke”, (which is the fog the Smokey mountains are named for) rolled over the top of the hills surrounding us and into the cove! It was a memorable trip!! I highly recommend it!!
Cecilia C. Nov 2019
We love the cabin. This was our second stay but first in the Cove. It was smaller but really nice. My only complaint is it sort of had a smell. It was a light smell of dog in the home. Everything else was perfect. Thank you so much. We will be back.
Manager response:
We are happy that you enjoyed this lovely cabin. This unit is not pet-friendly, and we have sent out our housekeeping staff to ensure that any odor that may have been there before has been taken care of now. We look forward to hosting you again in the future!

Rafe Aaron P. Jul 2019
The cabin looked just like the pictures on the website. Beautiful and clean. It was near all the attractions I wanted to enjoy with my teens, horse back riding and white water rafting. I will definitely rent again. Thank you for making my vacation easy and stress free.
