Super Nice & Very New Cabin

When we opened the door, our jaws dropped! This place is incredible! This cabin is in an excellent location for a Western North Carolina mountain getaway. Very private and quiet, even though it's right on the back road from the highway. It's about a 30 minute drive to downtown Bryson City. Convenient for day trips to Cherokee attractions, GSMNP, Franklin gem-mining, and do-able for the Biltmore in Asheville. The cabin has everything you could ask for in a mountain get-away. Fireplaces, outdoor firepit, hot tub, open floor plan kitchen/living room, screened-in outdoor deck, creek side location provides a very special ambiance. No long range views from cabin, but it's only a short ride up to the top of the mountain for great views from the deck. The decor is top notch and the kitchen had everything we needed for preparing our meals. We drove the back road from the cabin to the waterfall trail, it was a nice little hike. We tried to go over to the NOC but the back gate had an additional lock on it, not sure if that is permanant or not? We drove over to the NOC later in the day, about a 15 minute drive. The only minor downsides we encounted was the lack of WIFI, there was an available Hot Spot booster, but without your own Hot Spot, there is no internet. Also, no cellphone reception at the cabin. Without internet/cell service, we could not access our online music library, email etc. It would of been nice to have a CD player or radio to hear music with. There is an iPod dock/speaker if you bring your own mp3 player. The only other minor issue was the mirror in the master bathroom. I think it was designed for people over 5'10". I'm on the short side (5'3"), and could only see the top half of my head when standing at the sink. It would of been nice to have a small make-up mirror like they have in hotels, to accomodate us vertically challenged adults. But these were only minor issues compared to how much we really enjoyed soaking in the hot tub at night, roasting marshmallows in the outdoor firepit next to the creek, playing games upstairs in the game room and enjoying the peace and quiet. We would absolutely stay here again, just bring your own Hot Spot & make-up mirror ;) Recommendations: (1) Bryson City Visitors Center, very friendly folks with lots of info, including discount tix for Biltmore. (2) Cork and Bean Restaurant, excellent food and great selection of beer/wine/coffee. (3) Tumbling Waters trout pond, catch your own dinner! (4) Mason Mountain Mine
Families with Teenagers,
Owner's Response: Dear Tim and Kim,
Thank You so much for your 5 star review of the Cabin and amenities! You are so right, the photos do not capture the Beauty of this cabin and the Peaceful Atmosphere of the Creekside Setting!
We are always looking for ways to improve our Guests Mountain Vacation experience and appreciate your "heads up" regarding the make up mirror. We recently placed a fabulous "touch light" mirror in the cabin for your next stay!
We now offer use of a Hot Spot (small fee will apply) for Guests that do not have their own wireless internet to plug in to the booster.
I hope you enjoyed the free local and long distance provided by the Owners as well as the music stations on the Satellite Package. Cell signal can be "sketchy" in Mountain terrain, but does work best in the front of the house for some reason.
You and your Family are welcome any time! J&J
