PERFECT IN EVERY WAY! BEAUTIFUL UNOBSTRUCTED VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
We were very pleased with the property, layout, design and decor of the Milkey way cabin. We had been burnt before on smokey mt rentals and were nervous... but the actual views were just spectuacular, no looking over someones yard or roofs ! We spent a good deal of our time on the main floor porch enjoying the fantastic weather (warm days, cool/chilly evenings) We were either up there or at the fire pit on the lower level enjoying the garden and our grilled entrees with fresh vieggies from nearby farm stands. We even enjoyed rainbow trout that we caught, really my husband but I did catch something besides trees or rocks on this trip... too small to keep but was still a victory! We enjoyed the trails on the property so much and the assorted views that we barely went to maggie valley or waynesville which was our original plan. The beds were oh soo comforable and we relaxed and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. We checked out the horse pasture as next time we may bring the 4 leggeds along too. Either way, we know we will be back. Georgina was just the BEST Hostess, fun, sweet, informative and johnny on the spot if you needed something.

STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5
What a perfect place! The views, the views, the views! At night, the cove was alive with fireflies and frogs and coyotes. Our 15 yo daughter called Milima Ranch the most beautiful place she had ever been. The vista from Milky Way cabin is mesmerizing, and the trails on the property are great (though steep in some places -- I didn't realize how out of shape I was). The hike from Milky Way to Hayes Knob was a fun family adventure, and the view at the top was definitely worth the hike. The cabin is luxurious and well appointed without being cheesy or cluttered. We are a family of six and it was perfectly sized. We spent seven days here and can't wait to go back.

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
WOW!! Milky Way cabin was all we wanted and more. The views are incredible. The furnishings and decorations are top quality. Landscaping around the cabin was beautiful. We hiked the property trails on day one, day two went into Pisgah and hiked including Max Patch then returned to hike and picnic on the property, day three chose to just hike the trails on the property again...they really are as good as anything else around. If you enjoy birds you're in for a pleasant surprise...great variety and constant activity around the cabin. We really loved this place and hope to return soon. I wouldn't change a thing about the cabin...it really is that good. Very private and quiet as well. Thx for sharing!!

WOW, WHAT A GREAT PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just returned from a 4 night stay at the Milky Way cabin and are already trying to plan our return trip. We were pleasantly greated by Georgina upon our snowy arrival, and she graciously had a warm fire burning in the beautiful fireplace. What a great way to kick off the week. The next day the sun came out and we took to the hiking trails on the property that she has clearly marked with a copy of a trail map in hand. We listened to her recommendation to climb to the top of the mountain in search of "The Rock". 2 hours later we found it, and as she mentioned, the views were worth every step! The following day was spent recuperating enjoying the nice little mounatin city of Waynesville and an evening Elk Tour in the Cataloochee valley. Then the remainder of our time we spent enjoying the trails again on her property. The trails were as good as any we have seen before in National parks. They were colored coded and well maintained and even had hand rails and log steps dug into the mountainside in a few locations.
Most afternoons and evenings were spent enjoying the amenities that the cabin had to offer...Great Views of the mountains and valley floor below, beautifully landscaped gardens surrounding the cabin and grounds, cool air and warm sunshine made for great basking in the sun on the deck. Then once the sun set behind the mountains, we would head back inside to enjoy the evenings by the fireplace.
The cabin and property show Georgina's love for the outdoors as well as her attention to details. The cabin was very nicely decorated and well stocked with almost anything needed to prepare a feast. The furniture and beds were very clean and comfortable. I cannot say enough about this place, other than that we plan to return again soon. Thank you Georgina for making our weekend a very memorable one, you & your property exceeded our expectations!

SIMPLY WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
There are many fine properties listed on VRBO .. not as many that are gated, and still
fewer that have 400 acres of private property, complete with hiking trails. Maybe there is only one.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Milky Way cabin. Western North Carolina is very scenic. But some days, we didn't even feel the need to leave the cabin, and we didn't. All we needed was a good fire and that view from the porch.

If you look at the comments below, you will only see 5 star reviews. There is a reason for that. A previous reviewer said it best: "You will remember this property long after you have departed through the gate." So true.

SERENE MOUNTAIN GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
Over the years, we’ve rented many vacation homes, and Milky Way is definitely one of our favorites. Georgina is the most gracious proprietor who is very thorough, thoughtful, and personable. Milky Way is a gorgeous cabin surrounded by 400 acres of picturesque beauty. We loved all the trails, hiking along the creeks, springs and water-falls, the beautiful vegetation and the sounds of nature. At the top of white trail, there is a rewarding grand view of the mountains and valley below. We threw out our tourist check list and spent our time simply decompressing and exploring Milima Ranch. Thanks for sharing this beautiful place with us. We will be back.
