House that pampers :)
We had this reserved since it turned out cost efficient and fit the budget well for our group of 6. This house, however can comfortably fit a larger group. While we had a few doubts initially, we were pleasantly surprised when we entered the property.The drive up the fire road is challenging but the house was worth that trouble. The location or the house provides such amazing views, at every level.
The house was beautifully decorated, and I d want to appreciate the personal touch. Although we never had a chance to meet the Schulz family who own this, we are absolutely grateful for the effort that they had taken to make sure we got to enjoy our stay, in the most relaxed and comfortable way. And just as another reviewer has mentioned, the photos shown here do not do justice to the house. The rooms were beautifully decorated. The bathrooms were superbly spic and clean. I d want to commend their eye to detail. They even had extra pairs rafting sandals and wind-shielders for use and wear. The book collection was extensive, although we couldnt quite get to read much. 'Gone With the Wind' is one of my favorites and it was a delight to notice the book up on th shelf in the living room.
We arrived Saturday afternoon and had particularly chosen this location, thinking it would provide us an easy drive across the Nantahala Reserve park to the Smokies and also raft the Ocoee Upper. We had a made a reservation with WildRiverRating and it was surpise to find out that the house hardly few miles away from the location. The rafting experience was exhilarating and it helped to have the house so close, and not have to dirty the car. We also chose to cook that evening's dinner at the house, and the kitchen had just about everything that we would need. The front porch at the living room level has a swing and we had some amazing portrait photos taken at the porch which received abundant natural light. The sun set view was breathtakingly beautiful.We drove the next day to the smokies, and also visited the Nantahala lake. We left the monday morning after labour day.
I d have wished we had gotten to stay longer, but this was one of the best rental vacation houses I have been too. I d be delighted to recommend that this was a five star experience we had at the house, that left us absolutely pampered.
