The cabin was just as beautiful in person as it is in the pictures. Wasn't too far away from downtown Dillsboro or Sylvia (plenty of cute little shops on their main street to browse and a brewery). The drive into the cabin is no joke. Our explorer had a hard time making it up the last hill and signage to the place could be better as we drove past the street the first time and had to turnaround on a very narrow and steep portion of the road. Not as secluded as I would have liked. There weren't many houses around the area in general however you have to drive by two houses very close to the road to get to this cabin (one had a very well behaved loose dog at it). One downfall... you can hear everything in the cabin. If one person got up in the morning, everyone was woken up by it. The hot tub was nice and in a great location. We loved that every floor had a bedroom and bathroom so everyone had their own space. The game tables were a blast. Only about a 20 minute drive to Harrah's Casino in Cherokee. About an 45 min to hour drive to the ski resort in Maggie Valley. The closest real grocery store is Ingles in Sylva. Had a great meals at Bogart's and El Patron. Overall, a great vacation! Thanks!
