Recent Smoky Mountains, North Carolina vacation rental reviews

Cabin was clean and well furnished. Dish network and wifi worked well. Cell reception was acceptable. Should plan on arriving before dark.
Jimmy A. | Nov 2021
Love the fact it was on the river. Neighbors very friendly and helpful. House was clean. Unfortunately a couple of issues we reported on arrival did not get resolved until last day of trip.
Ann O. | Nov 2021
Great house. If you select it based on the hot tub contact in advance to make sure it’s full and working. First night it was half full and cloudy, second night it never got warm enough after being refilled. Was told we’d see a credit but have yet to. Disappointing as the rest of the property is outstanding but the availability of the hot tub was a deciding factor in choosing it.
