We had a wonderful time. Everything was so clean. Loved the way the house was decorated. We had 10 adults and 5 children. Plenty of room for everyone to be comfortable. Loved the view from the deck. My bed was so comfortable and the huge tub was marvelous. Everyone agreed that we should definitely plan to stay here again.

Family gathering

We had a great time! Plenty of room to spread out and enjoy. We were easily able to get to all our destinations, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Maggie Valley and Cherokee. Rooms were nice. Views were amazing! The hot tub was a hit!

enjoyable week

  • 4 of 5
Cabin is nice and clean and worked well for our group of four families. We had 13 people that included 4 children and a
baby. Home included high chair and pack n play. We enjoyed the decks and the mountain view. The outside ceiling fans made the deck pleasant even on warmer days. The kids and adults enjoyed the hot tub. We saw a fox walk along the edge of the woods a few times.

The Cataloochee Valley in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of the nearest locations to access mountain hiking trails and is less than 30 minutes away up Cove Creek Road. Some of the other places we visited included Maggie Valley, Cherokee, Bryson City, Asheville, and Clingman's Dome. Big Bear Rafting (highly recommended) is just up I-40 in Tennessee.

The Walmart in Waynesville is not very far away for the essentials (such as hand soap) and it is worth the drive to eat at Bogart's Restaurant and Tavern.

The kitchen itself is very nice with a five-burner gas cook top and two ovens. The cooking pots are in good shape.

Unfortunately the kitchen also had a few downsides. Prior to booking I wrote to the owner and asked:

"We plan to do a lot of cooking. Is the kitchen cookware in good working order? (We had a previous rental experience where there were plenty of pots and pans but they were rusty or flaking teflon and basically non-usable)."

The owner wrote "The kitchen cookwear will exceed your expectations."

The kitchen had two fry pans. One of them was stainless steel and had black gunk encrusted around the edge of the cooking surface. The other pan had flaking non-stick surface. I could not find a spatula or coffee grinder. I contacted the owner who responded:

"I assume that someone took the spatula and has damaged the frying pan as well. We don't offer a coffee grinder. Just
regular coffee pot and a Keurig. There is an electric frying pan that you can use that is new. Would you like me to have
someone bring you a spatula?"

The cookware did not meet our expectations. Using an electric skillet in an otherwise gourmet kitchen was not what I had in mind. I ended up buying a couple fry pans at Walmart. I suggest asking about this prior to booking if you intend to cook during your stay.

Don't have space here to write much else (including more of the great things!), but I do want to mention that the bunk beds
were squeaky and made it hard for some of the kids to fall asleep.

Overall we loved the cabin and had a great week!

Very Nice set-up

  • 5 of 5
The house was very nice and set up well for a large group. We had 12 motorcycles and 14 adults. The driveway was a little tricky for motorcycles but with a little extra caution it wasn't a problem. I would recommend this house for a great smoky mountains vacation.

amazing cabin

  • 5 of 5
This is an amazing cabin, better than what the photos can tell you. Views from the deck were stunning. We also like the location, in particular the close proximity to the eastern part of the national park with some less beaten trails. We particularly liked the Boogerman loop trail (not recommended for small kids), which is about 30-40 min drive from the cabin. My only mild complaint is that you have to get rid of the trash bags by yourself. We left the place on Sunday, and the suggested dump station closes on Sundays so we ended up taking the trash bags with us home.

Storm of the Century

  • 5 of 5
We asked for snow and did we get it.........The house was wonderful. We were originally to have 11 but ended up with 8........more space than we could have ever asked for. Plenty of room for 3 and 4 year old to run around in the house while we were snowed in....yes the back yard is steep but we would not be letting the kids out unsupervised anyway...........plenty of room to play in the snow and tabogon down the slope on the side and driveway........ the Wi was missing but there were plenty of other REAL games and puzzles...............
We took my brother with his wheelchair and once we got him inside he stayed mainly on the ground level floor, there were baby gates, pack and play and handicap accessable equipment.
