The Oaks has become our 'getaway' place in the mountains. The setting, the cabin, the amenities, and the views make this a wonderful place.
Dennis M. Oct 2022
The Oaks cabin was magnificent with views of the mountains with their colorful autumn leaves. The interior was beautifully decorated with all wood floors, cathedral ceilings, and walls. The kitchen and bathrooms were well equipped with the essential necessities. The outside fire pit was great for entertaining with a picture perfect view. It is a short 15-20 minute drive to local towns such as Bryson City, Sylvia, and Dillsboro. Also near entrance to the National Park. We spent a wonderful week there and would gladly return.

This is our second stay in this precious cabin. The view can’t be beat. The cabin is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay.

My family loved this cabin. Great location so close to Great Smoky Mountains, and an incredible view!!

This home was everything it was said to be and more!

This was a BEAUTIFUL log cabin set in the most peaceful setting. We had a spectacular view. The drive up wasn’t terrifying. 🤣. We will definitely be booking this home when we go back.
DONNA T. Jun 2022
The cabin in itself was great. The stairs could use an extra hand rail on the wall side of the stairs. Also water pressure was weak in both showers. The grill was very dirty. We Did Not use it. The windows could use a good cleaning on the outside. But for the Most part the cabin was wonderful. We loved the quiet setting. Seen lots of wildlife. Deer several times a day. The rabbits and the squirrels would come play in the yard. And on our last day we seen several turkeys with their babies.
Manager response:
Hi, Donna! We appreciate you choosing to stay with us and are glad you enjoyed your time here. The homeowner has been advised of the water pressure, and we have asked them to schedule a vendor to professionally clean the windows. The grill will be handled by housekeeping. Thanks!

We loved the warm and inviting cabin and beautiful location. Very close to Great Smoky Mountain NP and Blue Ridge Parkway. There was some construction on the grounds during the day which was unfortunate, but otherwise an amazing time.

Awesome place to stay.

Nice cabin. Not too far from the Casino.
Samuel H. Dec 2021

This cabin and property is awesome! Very clean! Everything was accurate in the description online with so much more! It was nice to have toiletries provided as well as a hair dryer. Elderly parents loved this place. It won’t disappoint!
Gerald S. Oct 2021
Great location with absolute amazing views! Didn't even need to leave the cabin to see spectacular fall colors of the Smokey's. ​This was the second cabin we've rented at Country Acres and loved them both. Cabin was clean and well appointed. Everything was flawless from making the reservation, our arrival, and through our stay. Highly recommend.
Chris W. Oct 2021
Awesome view and location !
Country Acres C. Sep 2021
Absolutely the best weekend ever!! We love this cabin so much!! We will be staying here often.

My young daughters and I rented this beautiful cabin for several nights during our road trip. It was incredible. The cabin sits on a 5-6 cabin loop and if you’re wanting a view of the mountains, this is the only cabin in the Country Acres loop that gives you a great view of them. Right across the porch there is a lovely pasture of wildflowers and we watched many butterflies in the evenings. You’re 5 minutes from downtown Cherokee (you must visit Bearmeat’s Indian Den for your souvenirs - it’s hands down the best with all locally made souvenirs. We visit every time we pass through), 15 minutes from the Smoky Mountain Railroad and National Park, an hour from Pigeon Forge (but practically no traffic compared to the Tennessee side of the mountains), so much to do. We will definitely stay again next time we make the road trip down south.

We stayed at The Oaks cabin in Country Acres. The location is remote and peaceful, but close to Cherokee, Sylva, and Bryson City. The cabin was clean and equipped with all we needed. It was such a peaceful place with a great view.
Maribel C. Jun 2021
We loved our stay! Our only regret is that we couldn’t stay longer. The cabin was lovely with everything we needed and even more. Clean, cozy, and just perfect for our family. Our son just loved his bedroom space on the second level and is already asking when are we coming back.
CAROLINE T. Jun 2021
My family and I had a great stay here. Nice creature comforts, but still “a cabin.” Love the location. Pretty and nothing in your eye line except farms, mountains, and the occasional cabin. But still close to Smokey Mountain National Park and Several towns. We enjoyed the fire pit and the fire flies at night, which put on the best “fire fly light show” I’ve ever seen. I’d stay here again.
Jennifer R. Jun 2021
Clean, relaxing and comfortable! We will come back again!
Nicholas B. May 2021
The home site was great for a mountain vacation and very well maintained. Well appointed kitchen and very comfortable beds. Slept great. WiFi in the house and connectivity by Verizon cell service were fine. We will be back!
Natalie M. Apr 2021
This cabin was the perfect cabin for a relaxing get away. The furnishings were clean and comfortable and the fire place made the cabin feel warm and homey. You can't beat the views and the fresh mountain air. We loved sitting by the fire pit and relaxing after doing a variety of outdoor activities in town just a short drive away. Would definitely love to come back!
Pinky P. Feb 2021
This was the perfect spot for my husband and I to get away for the weekend. The kitchen is well appointed, the bed is comfortable, and the couch is cozy. It's an easy drive to get to the national park as well as to Bryson City. It's still remote enough to be out of the way, which was exactly what we were looking for. A++ would stay here again.
ROBYN H. Feb 2021
Everything was amazing!! :) Thank you!!!
Connie T. Oct 2020
360 views of ridges and beautiful hills and hollers down to pastures . Grounds are green and well kept. Log homes are widely separated. The asphalt circular road winds up into the ridge with beautiful hard woods and well kept shoulder. It is very quiet! The fire ring was made of large stones and chairs were comfortable . Inside stone fire place switches On in an instant . Windows all around the great room open to the surrounding country side. Beds were comfy.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us Connie! We are thrilled to hear you had a picturesque vacation and enjoyed the home. We hope to host you again!
Victoria C. Oct 2020
We had a lovely stay here and would definitely stay here again in the future.
Richard B. Sep 2020
This was a very comfortable and beautiful home. I would rate the cleanliness high; however, the windows/kitchen floor could be cleaner.

An issue with this home is that you can hear a rock quarry when you are outside the house If you are there during the day during the week. Otherwise, it is a fairly quiet house. It was not a problem for us since we left most mornings early to go hiking. I did not see any comments regarding this from other guests, so I assume that it is new. You can hear them breaking up rocks and the backup alarms on trucks.

During our visit in September, the acorns our falling on the roof which is metal. If you are a light sleeper, I would recommend sleeping in the lower bedroom. At night it sounds like a billiard ball hitting the roof.

This home is in a complex with five other rental homes. The common road is very close to the house on two sides.
Manager response:
Hi, Richard! Housekeeping has been reminded to do a thorough cleaning of the windows and kitchen floor. We apologize for any excessive noise you experienced; this is the first we have heard of such a thing and will keep an eye on it. Thank you!
Brenda S. Aug 2020
We spent lots of time on the porch in the swing. Our bed was very comfortable. The open space in the living area plus the kitchen was wonderful. Water pressure was great. We loved all the exposed wood and the decor was awesome. We had visitors - Yellow finch & Hummingbirds , squirrels, rabbits and across the road in a fence was a Lama. Beautiful sunrise over the mountains every morning. Close to lots of fun activities, restaurants, and stores. Last but not least was the paved road. A perfect getaway for any occasion! We are looking forward to another exciting adventure on the mountain should definitely check it out.
Santiago B. Aug 2020
This is a truly beautiful cabin, using the traditional wood construction in a (not too) modern, very appealing style. The views were fantastic from there were fantastic (both mountains and night sky). We loved to be there and would be our first choice if going back to this area.
Lauri V. Aug 2020
The location and Mountain View’s were amazing. The cabin was secluded, peaceful and perfect! My daughter and I stayed for 4 nights and we’re sad to leave.
Kevin K. Jul 2020
If your looking for bells and whistles then this isn’t the cabin for you. But if your looking for a peaceful getaway and to just relax then this is your cabin! Loved it!!
Warren E. Jul 2020
We have been so pleased with our cabin! It’s very well-appointed and is in great shape—clean and tidy. And, we love its rural setting, while still being close to Cherokee. Thanks so much for a great experience! We’ll be back as soon as we can :)
Tony F. Jul 2020
Best view in the neighborhood!
Terry B. Jun 2020
Cabin is homey and clean, great mountain view, peaceful, and a short drive to Cherokee or Bryson City. We highly reccomend staying here.
louis jerome v. Jun 2020

The view was great. Cabin perfect except no dishwasher
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Larry! We do not advertise a dishwasher in this home as an amenity, but hope that you enjoyed the rustic charm this home has to offer!
Ashley W. Dec 2019
It was an awesome cabin with a great view! Only thing is if you expect us to do laundry and dishes the soap should be provided. Awesome views close enough but also far enough away from hustle bustle of big towns. Definitely would stay again
David P. Dec 2019
Nice house and beautiful area however the house was dirty, stained sheets and towels and mildewed showers and torn showers curtains. Would not stay here again.
Manager response:
We are so sorry you were displeased with the cleanliness of the home. We do have high cleanliness standards, and the housekeeping manager will be speaking with our team regarding your comments. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
Devin D. Nov 2019
This cabin is 10 star and that’s coming from someone who owns VRBO rental cabins in a different state.
Sue H. Nov 2019
This setting is perfect! The cabin is small but not tiny. It has a beautiful view of the mountains! Very clean, modern and well appointed. I wish I could move in! We’ll definitely be back again!!!!
Margaret M. Nov 2019
The cabin is really cute and has all the amenities. We enjoyed waking up and seeing the mountains as well as the neighboring alpacas. It was quiet and serene. We had a great stay.
Brian O. Sep 2019

Jamie C. Aug 2019
Quaint cabin with a Great view and modern amenities!
Linda P. Jul 2019
We enjoyed our stay at the cabin very much. It was clean and well appointed with everything we needed. The view from the back porch was amazing and we enjoyed using the firepit as well. We had a minor issue with the cable but the response was immediate from the office and they had the cable company out within an hour or so of our call. Great response and we hope to stay again in the future!
andrew h. Jul 2019
We loved the cabin atmosphere and beautiful scenery
Whitney M. May 2019
This home was perfect for me, my husband, and my parents! The perfect size and so comfortable and cozy. The kitchen was well-stocked which we appreciated as we love to cook. Absolutely gorgeous views overlooking the mountains and the cows grazing. We are hoping to stay here again in the future!
