Five Star Stay!

  • 5 of 5
Dan & Sheyla,
When it comes to first impressions, your cabin really nailed it! We found everything very comfortable and after a week in Nashville it was nice to finally get a good nights sleep on a real bed. Real log cabins are something else and you have a nice one. The weather was not the best on our visit, our first day it rained the half of the day but that was ok as Ellen had to visit the health clinic in town for an eye allergy. A big thanks to the girl at the bait shop for directions to a clinic! Thursday evening found rain cancelling a camp fire, sure glad the hot tub is under roof! Friday was forecast to be 80% chance of rain and was the sunniest day of all. The driveway was in good shape and we had no problem navigating in the mini van.
Thank you! for sharing your cabin with us and our Abby dog, Jim & Ellen
To add review to this note to the owner, We have stayed at many cabins since we explore different places. This Cabin was very clean upon our arrival and we found no bugs during our stay. It is a quiet secluded location, no need to lock your car. There is internet, satellite TV, hot shower, laundry and the water is good to drink with no shortage, hard to find all this in a secluded location! Supplies are not that far away if you forget something and there is a good variety at the cabin. The covered porch and split rail fence adds to the mountain experience. The owners called the cabin phone on our arrival day to check to see if we made it in and if there was anything we needed, nice folks! Owners are also well established in the area and are eager provide support. Great mountain view from the rocking chair, Can't wait to go back!

SECLUDED HEAVEN ON THE MOUNTAINTOP

  • 5 of 5
We arrived to a clean and inviting cabin after driving 10 hours. We were all tired my fiancee and children ages 15 and 20 yrs old. But once we arrived and seen the cabin and inviting hot tub we all got our second wind. We were running around like kids exploring the cabin inside and out. It was the most enjoyable vacation we have every had. During the day we enjoyed gem mining at Rose Creek Mining and had the best time. We would come back to the cabin and use grill. All you need to bring are the groceries. Everything else is provided. My family did not want to leave. When I realized there was no air conditioning I figured this is not going to work. But it stays at a constant 73 during the day with the windows up and at night it gets chilly. I was very impressed with how cool the cabin is with just fans and ceilling fans. The appliances were spot on from the kitchen to the laundry. I wanted to bring the washer and dryer home with me. The towels were fluffy and plentiful when using the hot tub. Hot tub was very clean as was the rest of the place from the inside to the outside. We enjoyed eating outside on the front porch for our meals. It was very peaceful with no sounds around. We would sit on the front porch and rock and look at the beautiful mountain scenery. I was very relaxed and so was the family we did not want to leave. Also we figured with all the trees around the cabin that we would have problems with the mosquitoes. WE DID NOT SEE ONE MOSQUITO THE WHOLE TIME WE WERE THERE!!! Our first night we did not hear a sound crickets or frogs. We could not believe it. We just left Mississippi and the man eating mosquitoes along with the humidity. This cabin was truly heaven on earth. I wish that we could live like this all the time. Dan was great with all our needs. This beautiful cabin over exceeded our expectations. I was very suprised that this cabin had been available on short notice. I would definitely be coming back but would like to stay longer. You will definitely be surprised by this cabin. The summary does not do it justice and neither do the pictures. This is a hidden treasure that has not been found by others. This cabin beats any of the cabin rentals around the area. It is 1/2 mile up its own driveway and there are no neighbors/houses within 1/2 mile. It was great not having to listen to neighbors argue. You are very secluded and will not have to worry about anyone bothering you. Just relax and enjoy.

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.

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!!!
