Pretty but rugged

  • 3 of 5
Lovely setting and cottage. It's a shame there's not more to the accommodations. Dated decor and cobwebs weren't deal-breakers, but beds are quite uncomfortable and the 'clean' towels smelled horrible. Be aware: the road to the cabin is rugged and impossible without 4-wheel drive vehicle. It's better than tent camping, but if you are looking for romantic or comfy accommodations, you might continue your search.

Owner's Response: We feel the necessity to provide background information as we address this review. The daughter of the reviewer specifically chose our location because it "fit the theme" of her wedding plans. She was having an outdoor wedding at DuPont State Forest. The bride actually called and made all of the arrangements, and was very excited that she had found us online. Unfortunately, the mother actually paid for this reservation and was displeased with her daughter's plans.
The mother sent this negative VRBO review while the daughter left a completely contrasting review in "our guest book". The daughter's review was "glowing" and reflected very pleased patrons with all of the family names attached. The bride’s review was quite beautiful and stated all positives and compliments including.... "the cabin was perfect and that she hoped to come back many more times”. We were surprised, confused and upset by these conflicting reviews.
We love sharing our beautiful property and log cabin with others and pride ourselves in providing clean and comfortable accommodations. We are exactly as we advertise: “log cabin living in a true Nature Lover’s Paradise” and “comfort in a rustic, private setting”.
To address some specific negatives left in her review : Bed comfort is subjective and truly is a matter of personal preference. Other guests have commented that the beds were very comfortable. To compare us to barely being better than tent camping is a complete misrepresentation of what we offer our guests. The road to our cabin is gravel but it does NOT require 4WD under ordinary conditions. The only exception would be when there are snow accumulations. We have had hundreds of guests rent this cabin over the past 12 years and the majority did not have 4WD.

As you evaluate our cabin for your mountain getaway, please take a look at all the other reviews. We have many patrons who return every year and consider the "GEM in The Forest " to be their "second home".

A little piece of heaven!!

  • 5 of 5
My kids and I rented this cabin as an alternative to the high priced hotels. We are so glad that we did. It was clean, comfortable and had charm. The loft was perfect for the kids. The bathroom is a little small, but was clean and had great water pressure in the shower. The yard was perfect...covered in soft, cushy green moss (barefoot heaven). Behind the cabin, in the woods, run some small creeks. The kids loved walking in the cold water. The cabin is secluded and quiet. If you want peace, this is the place to go. It has a wonderful vibe for nature lovers. If you keep the tv and outside influences off, you will feel truly refreshed when you leave. We will definitely be back.

Great escape in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5
We wanted a quiet, comfortable, mountain cabin close to lots of easy hikes (I was dealing with a bum knee and couldn't hike long distances) and gentle outdoor activities, and we definitely found what we were looking for in this "gem" of a hide-away just south of Brevard. We spent 10 wonderful days exploring places in the neighboring Pisgah National Forest and Dupont State Forest -- our favorites this trip were canoeing on the French Broad River out of Rosman, visiting Sliding Rock, Moore Cove Falls, Looking Glass Falls, Hooker and Triple Falls, and High Falls (the last three not more than a couple of miles from the cabin). Fawn Lake is also close by and is a perfect "10" swimming lake -- small, unspoiled, not crowded, and clear, warm water (high 70s when we were there in early September). The photos on the VRBO page are exactly what the cabin and property look like, and the description of the accommodations is accurate. The cabin is beautiful -- just what you think of when you picture a log cabin in the mountains. Thanks so much to Brenda and Laura for being such warm and welcoming hosts and for making our stay such a memorable one. We're already looking forward to our next visit!

My wife and I were looking for a quiet spot to enjoy the mountains. We hoped for serenity and privacy, and we found both. The cabin was great, the trout pond gave up to me my very first golden trout, and a 3.5 lb. rainbow. Brenda and Laura were friendly and helpful. Within hours of our arrival my wife was making me promise to bring her back every summer. She has told so many friends I'm afraid we might have to book for next summer right now!

Very Private

  • 4 of 5
If you are looking for a place where there are loud music, nosy neighbors, constant traffic, then this is not the place for you. This has been the most private place I have ever been. It has been made for someone who wants to get away from it all. It will refresh you with the birds singing and the sound of the wind in the trees. The fish in the pond is abundant. It was great that the waterfalls were so close to visit. There is also one on the back road coming in the other way on Cascade. And men, if you want to sit on the porch in your underwear without fear of being caught, this is the place!!! I
