Great for a large family. Having 2 separate kitchens was perfect to prepare multiple items at once.

This was my fourth visit to Tuckaway Retreat. House is beautiful and well equipped for large group. Spent the weekend fishing and our party caught lots of trout. Easy walk in access to the river makes this a first class experience.

The home is beautiful and clean. Plenty of space to spread out and my son loved the river. Caught tons of trout but since it was delayed harvest we couldn’t keep any but still had a blast catching and releasing. It had two kitchens and a grill so dinner was not hard to do with our group. I would stay again

We are a group of 5 couples who are college buddies from over 50 years ago. Finding places with 5 bedrooms with separate bathrooms is tough but this place was ideal. Everything was neat, clean, quiet and well stocked. Everyone was well pleased!

My family and I had a great long weekend at the Tuckaway Retreat. The home is vary spacious and has everything you need. We enjoyed fishing right outside the front door.

This house came equipped with almost everything you need. It is in a great location. Looking forward to our next trip!

Roomy for our family yet designed for gathering together for meals, games, outside settings, and inside settings as well. Also convenient to area recreation opportunities for fishing, kayaking, and swimming. Likely to make it an annual family trip.

Tuckaway Retreat provided a wonderful week long get a way. Our family enjoyed the cabin and the river front location. The adults were able to relax and the children enjoyed their 1st time fishing in the Tuckasegee River. We plan on returning next year!
Manager response:
Hello Cynthia, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to host you again!

The whole place was perfect! From the 1 year old to the 52 year old, we all loved it here. The porch, the view, the tall ceilings and beautiful tall wood doors, the wood swing, and everything you needed to stay, they had for you. And the walls were great…..can’t hear anything going on upstairs or downstairs! Definitely will be back!

We liked this house so much last summer that we returned this summer. We had better luck catching trout in the Tuckasegee River in front of the house last summer but still enjoying fishing in the river. The house has three levels with two bedrooms on each level. The two upstairs and the two main floor bedrooms are all ensuite while the two downstairs bedrooms share a hall bath. As far as beds, upstairs has 2 twins and a queen. Main floor has king master and queen. Downstairs has king and queen. There was plenty of room for four couples and adult children. We'd recommend to our friends and would come back.

We had an amazing time here. The place was awesome and had plenty of room. Being on the river was a bonus since we were able to fish right there. Very convenient location and the drive to Cherokee was easy. Wish we booked for a longer stay. We will definitely book again when we're in the area.

This was our second stay at Tuckaway Retreat. The home is gorgeous with plenty of space for six fisherman. We enjoyed use of the fire pit, large spacious kitchen and caught plenty of fish. Highly recommended!

House is neat and cleaned

The ladies in our family came from different states to spend a weekend together. This home fit our needs perfectly. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for privacy when needed, and plenty of sitting space in the family area for watching movies and spending time together. Many large homes have the bedrooms and baths, but only a few comfortable places to sit which makes no sense for places that hold crowds. The pilot light on the fireplace wouldn't light, but one call to the 800 number had a very pleasant technician out quickly to solve the problem. The house was well stocked and very clean. It was also easily accessible without the narrow curvy mountain roads leading to it. We will definitely stay here again.

Great House with plenty of room.
Excellent location.
Thomas L. Aug 2020
Perfect for the family looking for peace and quiet. Very comfortable and clean. Close to Cherokee, Highlands, and Maggie Valley. Highly recommend this house. We will be staying here again soon.
Toni B. Mar 2020
It was nice and we had more than enough room. Wish I would have brought my father with me because it's right at the river and my dad loves to fish. I will be bring him back in June.

If I ever vacation in this area again, this property would be at the top of my list to acquire. A immaculate home, that's by a calming river, in a tranquil environment, with excellent customer service provided by Vacasa, equals a excellent and worry free vacation!!! This property is highly recommended, to be experienced, while on a getaway or a vacation.
