This cabin surely lives up to it's listing as being private. We loved that we saw no neighbors, only heard birds and the soothing water wheel and viewed beautiful moonscapes in the absence of street and city lights. From the lush bedding and towels to a kitchen full of amentities, the owner maintains a well-appointed retreat leaving no comfort need unmet. We appreciated the cleanliness, beautiful furnishings, and lighting fixtures inside and out that add to the ambience. Bringing our pet meant so much to us too!
Truly enjoyed our week at the cabin. We brought our two small dogs and they loved running around the property. It's a little like being on a flat spot along the side of a mountain, so the dogs didn't have anywhere to go as long as they didn't go down the driveway. After so many vacations of keeping them on a leash for a week, this was refreshing for us, and them.
We had crazy weather, lows in the 30's, highs in the 70's some days, 50's on others. Thunderstorms several nights, but it was spring in the mountains, and we loved it. We laid in bed one night listening to the downpour (there's a metal roof) and realized we could hear the waterwheel moving. Another night we sat on the side patio and watched a lightning storm come across the mountains. It was amazing! The ground around the cabin sparkles with little bits of quartz from the surrounding mountains. The daffodils and tulips were just starting to bloom when we got there. Somehow they survived all the crazy weather we had. And in the off season (winter and spring), you can see the sunset through the trees from the hot tub.
The cabin is much more cozy than the photos show. The bathrooms are nice and the showers have to be new! Michael has instructions posted everywhere, which are just ways to make the cabin more like home. (Really, close the side blinds during the day. Even when it's cold, otherwise it gets stuffy.) The kitchen has everything, including a pitcher if you want to make juice or iced tea, and a glass pan if you want to make sweet rolls in the morning.
Our only complaint, and the only reason I didn't give the cabin 5 stars, is the seating in the living room. The recliner couch was unfortunately broken and neither side would recline. The other two chairs are wicker with some padding, but not as comfy as our seating at home. Otherwise the cabin was very clean and comfortable. It was exactly what we were hoping for - a peaceful, relaxing get-away.
After innumerable cabin rentals in the past decade in southern Appalachia, I have to rank the Water Wheel Cabin as one of my favorites.
The building itself is cozy, but in no way cramped, and well appointed with more thoughtful amenities than I've ever experienced.
And after a day of hiking, the hot tub- creatively placed within the timbers of an old cabin- was heavenly.
This location is by far, my new favorite.
This little cabin was perfect for a weekend away for my husband and I. It was very neat and clean and the king sized bed was very comfortable. It was in a wonderful, secluded location so we didn't have to worry about traffic sounds or anything like that. The hot tub was amazing for a cold winter night. We would definitely stay here again!
This was an amazing place to stay and I can't wait to go back!! It is the perfect location for everything! The Great Smokey Mountain Railway, Gatlinburg & surrounding area, white water rafting, Cherokee and Asheville are all a short drive away! The cabin is stocked for cooking and most basic non-perishables are provided! We're coming back this spring/summer! My daughter will love the loft! The town is great and Mike couldn't have been better!!
I was absolutely delighted the moment we pulled up to the house and saw the water wheel. Being winter, I can tell the spring and summer are also gorgeous. The house is filled with all the amenities you may need. The beds were so comfy. I will definitely be back. If you will be staying here you will love it also!
