Peaceful Quiet and Relaxing cabin nestled in the woods. Perfect lil get away with all things Smokies. Just on the outskirts of town. Close to town. Waterfalls and wildlife in every direction. Tastefully designed furnished and organized. With all the comforts of home. I would give it 5 Diamonds for its charming warm character.

This peaceful little get away was exactly what we needed. The house was beautiful, quiet area, clean except for some stuff that was missed in the upstairs shower but other than that it was perfect. I would rate 4.5 and we will definitely visit again!
Manager response:

We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to hosting you again!

What an epic trip, Bluebeary Bungalow was wonderful! The location of the cabin is perfect. It is secluded yet close to grocery store, restaurants, and breweries etc. The cabin itself is great! It is cozy, and has everything you need to feel right at home. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook a great meal (pots, pans, utensils, spices, etc). We also used the outdoor grill several times. The wood burning fireplace makes for a cozy evening on a cool evening.
The cabin also has various entertainment can watch TV, play foosball, or play board games to pass the time.
We had incredible weather, so we went for a different hike almost each day (Rufus Morgan Falls, Wayah Bald Lookout, Whiteside Mountain Trail near Highlands, Glen Falls - stop at Dry Falls on the way back, Bartram Trail - Wallace Branch to William’s Pulpit). We also visited nearby Curahee Brewing Company and Lazy Hiker Brewery.
We enjoyed returning to the cabin at the end of an active day for a homecooked meal and cozy evening. There is so much to do, and the cabin is amazing, I only wish we could have stayed longer!

We arrived at 4:15 and the cleaning lady was just finishing up the cleaning. Everything was good except the internet and the Keurig. The Wi-Fi was in and out a lot making it impossible to listen to music from our phone. The Keurig wasn't working very good. We had to run the machine 4 times before getting a full cup of coffee. The lighting was very dim. However the overall stay was good.
Manager response:
We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay, Fernando, and we appreciate you taking the time to provide this feedback! We do apologize for the items that were amiss during your visit. Please know that the owner has since upgraded the WiFi and it should pose no further issue. Additionally, the Keurig machine has been inspected and found to be in good working order.

We absolutely loved our stay! The place is super-clean and well organized. And such an appealing log cabin with its open concept living area and beautiful high ceilings. The beds are very comfortable and the bedrooms are quiet and private. The kitchen has everything you need - including coffee-maker so you can enjoy your morning cup while sitting in one of the rocking chairs on the front porch. We enjoyed family time with the games and puzzles available for use. The home is in a great location too. It's close to Franklin, which is a charming small Carolina town with unique restaurants and shopping. There's lots of trails in the area, many leading to spectacular waterfalls. Also highly recommended is the visit to nearby Wayah Bald to see Appalachian Trail hikers and the mountain-top view of four states! We can't wait to visit again.

We enjoyed our time at the beautiful cabin. We had family all meet there and it was real nice. Very private if that's what you are looking for and it's close to golfing and the gem shows which is why we were in Franklin. It was clean and well stocked with everything we needed.
Christopher W. Jul 2021
Comfy looking but for the cost you can find better. The beds are all steel frame and coil with less than 1 inch of padding. The furniture is mismatched. The fridge took 2 days to get under 40 degrees. Dozens of carpenter bees were annoying and Orkin was called but didn't come out due to the rain. The Tv's were nice but had constant loading issues. The shower heads are huge rain heads and hard to direct. When turning right onto the main road coming out of the driveway, watch your right rear wheel or you'll get stuck. Yard has 6 foot shrubbery. Less than a 1 acre lot with red painted sticks everywhere to show you the lot plot.
Manager response:
Hello Christopher, thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear you were disappointed with your stay and we have shared your review with our property manager to address your concerns. We confirm the beds in the home are actual beds and not 1 inch of padding. The fridge is working well and cooling properly and we haven't received any other complaints about it. The home has carpenter bee traps and pest service has treated the home. Unfortunately, because of the rain during your stay, we weren't able to send the company as the service wouldn't have worked correctly. The internet and cable can lag a bit as there are many trees on the property for the signal to get through. We apologize for any missteps, as it is never our intention to disappoint. We hope to have the opportunity to better impress you in the future.

Really enjoyed our time at this cabin. Kitchen is well equipped and everything was very clean. One thing to note, there is not a King bed although it is noted as being so. You are close (30-45 mins) to a lot of things to do and see.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Carol. We are so glad you enjoyed your time in this cabin. We appreciate your concerns regarding the size of the beds in the home. We have reviewed the listing and found it to be accurate. This home does not have a king-size bed. We apologize for any inconvenience this caused. Thank you for your feedback and we hope to host you again very soon.

This cabin was spacious and comfortable in every respect. It was also well stocked with kitchen utensils and cookware. The fireplace and leather chairs are exactly what you would imagine in a perfect wood cabin rental. All appliances were spotless and clean.

The Vacasa Team is very responsive and professional throughout the rental process. We will rent through them again for certain!

Back soon,
Damian and Tammy
