Recent Smoky Mountains, North Carolina vacation rental reviews

Peaceful location, great house, fence for dog, lots of outdoor stuff nearby.
BRANDON R. | Oct 2022
We loved our stay here! The location is perfect; while secluded and tucked away in the mountains, travel times into Sylva, Dillsboro, or any surrounding cities/attractions are reasonable. The cabin was clean, tastefully decorated, and outfitted with all the essentials and details imaginable to make your stay comfortable. The light switches and appliance remotes are labeled per their function. Additionally, the owner provided detailed instructions around the home on how to utilize devices within the property, including the HVAC units, gas heater, and super cool fireplace upstairs (which can also be used for ambiance only without heat) - These small touches were thoughtful & definitely took out all guesswork saving us time and frustration. The furniture & beds are incredibly comfy - by far the best I’ve experienced in ANY vacation rental home thus far. The photos and description on the listing, don’t do it justice. The experience is where it's at. The views are absolutely gorgeous. Once inside, or from any of the 3 outdoor areas which overlook the creek/trail, you will feel like you’re in treetops. We would highly recommend it to family, friends, and anyone needing a peaceful, relaxing getaway. We cannot wait to book our next trip!
