BEST CABIN IN THE AREA!

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a week long vacation and my family and I were very impressed. The cabin is beautiful, very clean, well stocked with beautiful views. The hot tub was wonderful as well. The road up to the cabin is rough...especially after a rain...but that's also what makes it secluded. The owners were wonderful and made sure everything went smoothly and all our needs were met. We went out several times to investigate the area, there's much to do in the Nantahala region. Also while there we scoped out other cabins we had been considering and this was by far the best one. We were very happy with our stay and recommend any going to the area to stay here.

PERFECT!

We stay in VRBO rentals at least once per year and this was definitely one of our favorites. Very secluded with beautiful mountain views. Loved the long driveway up the mountain. The dogs loved it as well. Great fire pit to relax around each evening.

LOVELY REMOTE CABIN WITH WONDERFUL VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our 5 day stay in this lovely cabin. We felt very peaceful - the cabin is right on top of the ridge, with nothing but trees and hills all around. This cabin was cosy for two adults, two children aged 12 and 15, and one dog. There was ample sleeping space, but dining was a bit tight! This cabin is probably at its best in warm weather because there was plenty of room to eat outside, on the deck or by the bonfire.
It was cold for our entire stay, but the cabin was warm and comfortable. The kitchen was very well stocked with pots and pans and everything we needed. The beds were comfy. Our son liked his bedroom, and my daughter loved the sleeping loft. Both of them appreciated the wifi.
We had snow the first day, and the woods were absolutely beautiful. We hiked to Queens Lake and enjoyed the variations in weather (sun/snow/wind). The next few days we explored the local hiking. We found plenty of great trails to explore. We love this area and would come back. Thanks to Sheyla and Dan for letting us stay in their lovely cabin.

WOULD RETURN AGAIN!!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I wanted a mountain getaway with lots of scenic views for the holidays (Christmas & New Years). We found this cabin and never looked back. Communication with Dan was always quick, helpful, and friendly. We drove to the cabin from Indiana through the Smoky Mountains and down the "Dragons Tail" drive (300+ curves in 11 miles), which was very cool. The cabin was everything we expected and more. The view from the front porch was amazing, especially while sitting in the hot tub on the front porch sipping a drink after a hike on the Appalachian Trail.

The inside of the cabin had all the amenities of home. We cook a lot and they had all the pots, pans, utensils one could need. The cabin is cozy, comfortable, and clean. Regarding the surrounding area, the closest grocery store is a pretty easy 20 minute drive away, with an even larger town (Murphy) about 30 minutes away. There are beautiful streams, waterfalls, and rivers surrounding Topton.

My advice for this cabin: If its cold, bring at least 1 starter log per day for the stove; be prepared for the bumpy, sometimes steep drive up the driveway to the cabin; go out and explore as much as possible! The area is so pristine and gorgeous. I can't imagine how beautiful it is in the summertime.

Overall, I would absolutely return and I'd recommend it to others. It is great for outdoor lovers and/or those looking for solace. Unless you have kids/teenagers who are really geared for the outdoors, they might get a little bored. We had no kids, so it was perfect!!

Thanks Dan & Sheyla!!!

MAGICAL MOUNTAIN RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I were expecting just a regular old cabin, hopefully situated at least on the side of a mountain (cause, you know, descriptions always seem to be better than the real thing) but we were just blown away by this cabin! It's better than described! On the very top of a mountain, surrounded by beautiful forests with an impossibly beautiful view of surrounding mountains, we completely fell in love. Sheyla and Dan have very lovingly furnished this cabin with everything you could possibly need (you just have to pick up groceries.) My boyfriend made a campfire every night and I made made fires in the awesome wood stove, and every night we sat in the hot tub on the porch and watched the mist in the mountains and the leaves falling. We even saw a beaver and a few deer!
Also make sure you check out the waterfalls and rivers on your way up the mountain. Just completely magical. We can't wait to come back.

The cabin is on a top of a hill with magnificent views. We enjoyed the quiet and intimate setting of the cabin. You can here the leaves falling. At night, we saw fireflies. It was well maintained , and it had all the necessary amenities. If you are looking for a quiet and amazing vacation, you have found the place. For the adventurous ones, Topton, the city the cabin is located in, is approximately 12 miles away from Nantahala Outdoor Center where you can rent kayaks and go down the river or go zip lining. The Smokey Mountains are not fire away - 1hr drive. Bryson City, Cherokee City are near by as well. Quaint little cities. I will also recommend a burger joint located on Wayah Rd and the Nantahala Lake. Beautiful view and delicious food. It is on the way to the cabin. Overall, we had an amazing vacation. Thank you Dan and Sheyla.
