Better than Expected!

I stayed in this cabin this past weekend as a last minute vacation. The pictures, view, and the price were appealing, so of course I booked it. The cabin was better in person, believe me. The hot tub is HUGE, the porch area has ample space to hang out and look at the stars, and the interior is even better. The second bedroom/living area has a very large TV with a large DVD collection, there are plenty pots/pans in the kitchen, the bathroom decor was great, and the bedroom was comfy as well. I did NOT want to leave! I will say that I am glad I rented an SUV, as the hill to the cabin is pretty steep & rocky. If you have a low sitting car (like a mustang) it may be tough getting up there. You are literally on top of the mountain, so you have great views and there isn't much around you. You may not want to watch any scary movies while you're there, if that gives you an idea of how alone you will be, lol. Either way, there is plenty to do in the area - casino, outdoor activities, festivals. We hung out in Cherokee, which is about 20 minutes away. I cannot say enough about this cabin, I really enjoyed it and made my first trip to the mountains a memorable one. Also (before I forget), the owner Michael is great. You can call him or email him and he responds promptly. Everything was set up and ready for us when we arrived, which was greatly appreciated!
Owner's Response: Thanks for the wonderful review. Good to know you enjoyed your stay. Very nice young couple. The road is gravel not rocks though. I recommend that you have front wheel drive, all wheel drive is good but not a requirement. The grade is 13% which is within acceptable parameters. My gardener has a 1996 Honda civic and I have a Quest mini van both have front wheel drive they go up with no problem. Most newer vehicles are front wheel drive. Rear wheel drive cars and small pick ups with rear wheel drive do not do well in the mountains. I always discuss the type of vehicle and what the approach to the cabin is like with a potential guest.
