Recent Smoky Mountains, North Carolina vacation rental reviews

This home and the views from the home are absolutely stunning. The owners have done such a great job of stocking the home with lots of fun games and decorating the home very tastefully. We spent almost all of our time there sitting on the wrap-around patio enjoying the mountain views and all the beautiful birds! This home is about 30 minutes away from downtown Bryson City and the roads that you take to get there are quite an adventure. Winding mountain roads with steep inclines and lots of hairpin turns. Once you make it to the house, though, you'll be spoiled with complete serenity. Also, there is absolutely no cell reception whatsoever so you'll have a truly unplugged getaway. Follow the driving directions that you receive in your check-in email because GPS definitely WILL NOT help you. One other quick note: the two bathrooms are both en suite with the two bedrooms available. If you have anyone staying in the loft, they will need to walk through the master bedroom to use that bathroom or go all the way downstairs to use that one. We had an absolutely wonderful stay here and you will, too!
