Recent Nantahala National Forest vacation rental reviews

Beautiful home and location
Scott d. | Jan 2023
Great cabin with great views. Loved the cabin and all the amenities. Loved playing pool and Foosball. Clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay again.
Tina J. | Jan 2023
This house is amazing. We brought my daughter and Nephew here to check out WCU. It is even dog friendly. We had some problems with the heating downstairs but they had a technician out in an hour. Also was a little disappointed the pool sticks had no tips so playing pool which was part of the reason we choose the house for the kids to have some fun was a bit disappointing.. If they choose the college we will definitely be where we plan to stay in the future and probable bring our own pool sticks and chalk lol.
