Beautiful & Dog-Friendly Mountain House w/WiFi, Central AC, Firepit, W/D, & Deck

Conveniently located less than an hour's drive to Asheville and 30 minutes to Bryson City, Cherokee, and the Great Smokey Mountain National Park, this two-level, three-bedroom house is going to be ideal for your family's next vacation! You'll love the interior's high, vaulted ceilings, gorgeous burnished floors, rustic themes, and comfortable furniture. Stream a good movie on the living room's flatscreen TV mounted just above the gas fireplace, then use the full kitchen's stainless steel appliances and ample counter space to whip up a delicious meal for the gang. You can serve up to four people at the kitchen table and the kids can swing their feet from the three breakfast bar stools. Let the dishwasher take care of all the cleanup while you enjoy a few refreshments out on the private deck. The private gas grill will make it easy to enjoy a fun-filled barbecue with friends and later, you can gather everyone around the firepit for some toasted 'Smores and campfire stories. Don't worry about stuck-on marshmallow goo - the private washer and dryer will easily knock out everyone's laundry. You can use the free WiFi to research tomorrow's outdoor adventure and the central AC and ceiling fans will keep the home nice and cool while you're here. Have a little work to do? Upstairs, you'll find a study with a work desk and chair, perfect for remote workers and students.

Loved all the trees and the wonderful porch!

Very relaxing and peaceful.

The cabin exceeded my expectations for my weekend stay. The view from the top bedroom was just spectacular. Definitely secluded and peaceful, but within a reasonable driving distance to stores, restaurants, etc. The place was clean, we absolutely loved the vibe and felt at home the moment we walked in. We definitely plan to stay here again in the future and perhaps longer than just a weekend.

Loved our stay in Sylva! It was a great Home. It was a great location. It was close to the Highland waterfalls, close to the scenic train ride., Close to Asheville, close to the tube ride down the river! We had a wonderful time and can’t wait to be back in the same rental in October for leaf peeping! The view will be fabulous !

This was a very nice cabin nestled in Appalachia. The cabin was readily accessible, yet far enough from the road and larger towns to have a remote feel. Cabin was clean and had good amenities including a very nice fire pit out front and a large deck suitable for dining and table-top games. The upstairs bedroom was large and had a very convenient desk area for anyone wanting to get some remote work done. Nearby one can find river activities (tubing, canoeing, kayaking) just a few minutes away and options for hiking abound. Reaching the smokies takes just less than an hour and mountains and forests in Georgia and Tennessee are also close by.

Wonderful location. The house is awesome. Having 2 bathrooms connected to the bedrooms was so convenient. Fire grill at night was so relaxing after a busy day. Definitely recommend.

Very beautiful home away from home. Loved how quiet it was and the mountains are my go to vacation and this was perfect.

This place is nice- great size for a family looking for a little getaway. However, the house had not been properly cleaned. We found pet hair on the bedspreads, in clumps all over the floor and up and down the stairs. Dust had built up in areas as well- on the stovetop dials, on the ice maker pads, under the battery-powered candles. We found a used Keurig pod in the Keurig-- we were left wondering "was this place really cleaned before we arrived?" I know it is pet-friendly, but the pet hair was excessive. We could not open the windows to enjoy the cooler mountain air because spider webs had built up in the window frames outside. Also, the internet is very slow so tv streaming access is limited. The place has potential- but needs a good deep clean!
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Brandon. We are happy to hear you had a good visit overall, although we are sorry to hear of the pet hairs on the comforter. While we do our best to eliminate any evidence left in our pet-friendly homes, occasionally some traces are left behind. In the future please note our team is available 24-hours a day via phone call and we would have been happy to assist with addressing the issues during your stay. We will follow up with our housekeepers to ensure they are paying close attention to detail for future guests. We appreciate your feedback and hope we have the opportunity to host you for an exceptional stay in the future!
