Recent Nantahala National Forest vacation rental reviews

Location and privacy.
Dianne N. | Oct 2021
This house came equipped with almost everything you need. It is in a great location. Looking forward to our next trip!
Debra R. | Oct 2021
Everything with this rental is as listed. The property was very clean and comfortable. The river is gorgeous but the highway noise does take away from it some. The directions into the property are quite tricky! If there were more details of landmarks along the road or direction signs it would be helpful. Once you learn the way though it is fine! The only issue we had was the fireplace did not work. I texted and also spoke with someone from vacasa and was told it would be corrected for us but it never was. We had chilly nights and a fire would have been nice! Other than that the property was perfect! It’s a very convenient location for many day trips.
