The perfect mountain experience
What a wonderful Labor Day week-end our family had! Matt and Angela were the perfect hosts, thebinterior of the cabin they built themselves was amazing, beautiful talent and artistry was put in every square inch of this house. The kids loved the upstairs loft, and cooking S'mores and hot dogs over the fire pit. We hiked to 5 different waterfalls during the day and took them gem mining with the local mine that seeds special buckets for children. Nothing like relaxing in the rocking chairs on the porch to enjoy the lovely view. Kudos to Matt and Angela!
Havens door and mountain view
Great place, wonderful owner, super new and clean. Great location beautiful views, tough little road but not too bad just drive carefully. Cant wait to come back soon.
Amazing views and perfect location makes this beautiful home the best mountain vacation!
I always read reviews before I choose a place to stay, and every review was positive about this property, and now I understand why. From the very beginning Matt and Angela are the perfect hosts! They met us upon our arrival bringing fresh tomatoes from their garden! They were also very informative about things to do in the area, and very responsive to any questions we had through out our stay. Coming to this area, I wanted to stay in a home that had a view of the mountains, and this home did not disappoint! The drive up to the house was a little steep, but we had no problems at all and it was well worth the picturesque views! We enjoyed morning coffee on the porch, and each evening we were able to see a gorgeous sunset through the treetops. As a person known to be OCD about cleanliness, this house was up to my standards. The house was clean and well equipped with everything we needed. The decor was just what you would expect of a mountain home! The location was perfect! There was so much to do and see in the area. We did not have to travel far to do some great hiking, or go for scenic drives. We drove to Cherokee one night to try our luck at the casino. We ended up with no luck, but had a great time! We also drove a couple of hours to the Smoky Mountains to see Clingman's Dome and to drive through Newfound Gap to Gatlinburg. The drive was beautiful, and the views were breathtaking. Our favorite adventure had to be the drive to Highlands with a hike up Whiteside Mountain! The views at the top were the best I had ever seen! Well worth the time to do this. Overall, I would highly recommend this property! You will not be disappointed! Whenever we are back to this area, we will definitely choose On Top of Ole Smoky as our home away from home!
We really enjoyed our stay in this cabin! It’s the last lot on the top of the hill and the drive up there was a bit nerve wrecking the first time, but once you get there and see the views and experience the beauty of the cabin it is so worth the climb. And the drive up and down got easier every time. This cabin has all you could ever want for a rustic yet convenient get-away! The hosts are also really friendly and available for questions or concerns. We will definitely be back!
Beautiful cabin with spectacular view!
Our family had a wonderful time at the cabin! We had everything we needed. The hosts were very friendly and provided advice on the local area. The view was spectacular! Loved walking out on the porch to see how the clouds and sun changed the view of the mountains minute to minute. We had a great time visiting Rufus Morgan Trail and Falls, Nantahala Lake, several falls on the drive to Highlands, and Cashiers Sliding Rock. We also went gem mining on our way out of town. We definitely plan to go back again soon!
