We had a great time and a great experience! The views from the balcony are stunning!
Laura T. | Feb 2024
Perfect for a long weekend or a week for that matter. Beautiful home. Comfy beds. Very spacious bathrooms and bedrooms Had everything we needed. Caution on the driveway, requires 4x4
Erica C. | Feb 2024
Beautiful location. We saw a bald eagle fly down the river as we were arriving for our stay. We are looking forward to renting this house during warmer months to take advantage of the river and the wonderful outdoor patio and fireplace. Perfect location for quick access to Dillsboro and Sylva. Close to the college as well.
