Better than fhe pictures!

We were pleasantly surprised to find the house nicer than the pictures. The river was so beautiful, with quite a few rafters passing by. River was shallow enough for our two teenagers to enjoy swimming. We thoroughly enjoyed coffee out on the deck every morning. With table seating for 8 inside and out, everyone had plenty of room to dine. Kitchen is small, so I would recommend bringing some sort of storage containers for food and kitchen items. We had a great time...thanks for sharing your home with us.

Spacious, well-appointed cabin with great views. We enjoyed watching the baby cows in the pasture across the river. The cabin is located in a quiet area without a ton of other cabins on top of you....We loved hanging out on the deck and the fact that our dogs were welcome. It's not a vacation without the entire family! Thank you. We would love to come back for an entire week!

MUCH MORE THAN WE EXPECTED!

Shirl;

I have repeatedly attempted to post the following Review. At least on HomeAway, your last review is over a year old. DO YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO POST THIS?
THANKS AGAIN, Ron


MUCH MORE THAN WE EXPECTED! This is NOT the typical vacation rental. EXPECT TO BE VERY FAVORABLY IMPRESSED... First of all this home is on a totally private river front estate with the mountains all around. The home is very well appointed and decorated, with highest quality fixtures and appliances. The huge Living Room with high ceilings has four leather sofas providing plenty of room. There is a massive stone fireplace with remote control gas logs to take the "chill" off the mornings. The large "picture perfect" Dining Room has a second stone fireplace. All of this with views of the river and the mountainside beyond that. The Master Bedroom Suite is extraordinary. My grandsons didn't want to get out of the Hot Tub. We enjoyed the Fire Pit for Smores next to the river, and the extensive grounds for foot ball. So much to do in this area. Do not miss tubing or rafting down the river. As we were leaving, my grandson said, "I want to Stay! I don't want to leave!" We all agreed with him. DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS FINE VACATION HOME....

This was our second visit to River's Whisper, and it was even better than our first.
They've added wireless internet, which was my only complaint previously - and it's nice & fast.
The river was high, so I wasn't able to fish like I did before - but there is so much to do that I didn't miss it. We went kayaking, hiking, gem mining, and whitewater rafting - all within a few miles of the cabin except for the whitewater trip (about 45 minutes to Nantahala).
There is a bridge a few miles upstream where you can put in your tube or kayak and float down to the cabin for takeout. You can also rent canoes, kayaks, and tubes from an outfitter just past the bridge and he will drive down to pick them up later.
We love wildlife & the outdoors, and this place is just perfect for bird or critter watching.
Seen from the cabin or on the mile walk out to the highway - whitetail deer, groundhog, skunk family, wild turkey, Canada geese, ruby throated hummingbird, goldfinch, and lots of other birds. Cottontail rabbits are everywhere.
It's so quiet & peaceful; the nearest neighbor is about 300 yards downriver, and there is none upriver at all for at least a mile.
The hot tub was a very nice end of the day treat after our outdoor adventures.
We look forward to returning as soon as possible; we would really like to get up there in the Fall to see the color.
Thanks !
