My family and friends rented this gorgeous home during New Year’s week. It was one of the best vacations ever. Tons of happy memories were made at that home! The house was absolutely beautiful and comfortable. The views from every room were breathtaking. Like most have said, the pictures on this listing do not do the property justice. The home is absolutely stunning. Most activities are within 1.5 hrs. from the home, like skiing, snow tubing, zip lining etc., so plan accordingly. Cataloochee Resort is about 2 hours away and amazing, if you want winter activities. We loved it! Had we gone during the summer months, the home would have been ideal for the lake usage. There were only 2 caveats that we found and were totally bearable. The narrow road and steep climb to the property was not ideal but ok. We had SUVs and a pick-up truck and all did great. Drive slowly and enjoy the views. You won’t be sorry. The internet was a little slow when all of the kids logged on but that’s because we didn’t listen to the owner’s warning about using up all of the WiFi allowance. All in all, it gave us a chance to bond with family and friends. It was truly an amazing trip! I also can’t say enough things about the owner, Tammie. She was wonderful to deal with and most accommodating to our group. I hope to be back!
