Lovely location just far enough off the beaten path

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location. Only about a 15 minute drive into Bryson City for shops/food. Just over an hour away from Asheville, although I was unimpressed with the city and wish we would have stuck with Bryson City. The cabin offered all the amenities we could have asked for. Not having WiFi was nice to disconnect, although AT&T service was never an we weren't completely disconnected. We only used the master bedroom and it was large and the mattress was comfortable. Our favorite thing was sitting out on the swinging bench on the front porch enjoying a cup of coffee in the mornings. I'd definitely stay at the cabin again in the future.

The only suggestions I can make are to replace the towels or ensure they are washed/dried properly. The majority of them smelled like they had sat wet in a washer for too long. Also, perhaps stock up on some supplies. We had to buy paper towels and laundry detergent. It wasn't an issue and maybe I'm expecting too much, but they would have been "nice to haves".

The Cabin was beautiful and well kept, except the six legged critters, but it was in a wooded area

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was really nice and very comfortable, it was, however, far away from the things that our family enjoyed doing. If you want to stay in a secluded place and just relax the whole time this is the cabin for you! It was far away from the things we like to do but the drive through the smokey mountains is always beautiful.

Awesome place

  • 5 of 5

Me and a few friends rented this cabin for a week/weekend. It was clean, had everything we needed. The showers were hot and relaxing. The beds were super comfortable. Hot tub was also nice. It had plenty of room. Beautiful views. And the best part is that my car was able to get there (huge factor for me since most other places required some sort of 4x4).

Very clean and comfortable for our family of 5. It would be cramped with more people. Kitchen could have used some larger fryng pans. The largest pan was only 8 inches. We cooked each night it was a challenge using the small pan. Plenty of dishes and flatware. Beds were very comfortable.

Owner's Response: We thank you for your input. On our last trip to the cabin we supplied the kitchen with additional pots and pans to eliminate the challenge of cooking with inadequate cookware

'The Other Place"

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is well-kept and every thing worked. Directions to the cabin were excellent. It was located in a beautiful setting. My son and his family joined us and it was a wonderful place to relax, visit, and play some games. The hot tub was a plus. The cabin is close to Bryson City which we found to be a very nice town with friendly people.
