Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

The price/value of this cabin is great. Beds are comfortable, views are amazing. Easy driving access which is not be underrated. Geoff and John (owner/manager) are so great to work with, accommodating and helpful. Rental was very clean and hot tub was a nice extra. Kids enjoyed the air hockey and wifi worked great and appreciated the free long distance as cell service is bit spotty. We would recommend this a perfect for families.

Everything you want and MORE!

  • 5 of 5

Yes, this cabin has all the wonderful things you are looking for in a cabin, but it also has ALL of the things one may not consider needing! Let's start with a flat driveway. This seems simple, but when passing other cabins with drive ways that went straight up or down you soon realize this is a luxury! The wrap around deck with the mountain views is perfect for sun or relaxing in the shade anytime of day. The cabin is spacious & very clean. The jacuzzi was a nice ending to a long day of exploring. John ,the leasing agent, already had the jacuzzi freshly filled and heated to temp upon our arrival. Last but not least I must mention the kitchen. It is well stocked with ALL of the things you may need. We were so excited to find the skewers for the fire pit. I had brought wire hangers to make our own, but we were covered thanks to the well-thought-out preparation of the owners Geoff and Laura. Overall this experience from booking our stay to checking out was a pleasure. This cabin is truly a "GeM"! We look forward to returning in the fall. Thank you Geoff & Laura for sharing your "Mountain GeM" with our family!

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this cabin! The views are beautiful and the cabin had everything we needed! The kitchen is especially had everything, and more! The hot tub on the deck overlooks the beautiful mountains, and unlike some other hot tubs at rentals, this one was very clean and well-maintained. We had the pleasure of watching a little ground hog outside the kitchen window each day. Cute little thing! We took our dog and she was very comfortable and enjoyed the cabin much as we did. The owner, Geoff, and the property management were super nice and very pleasant to do business with! We will definitely be back!

Well equipped, cozy cabin with nice view

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay for Valentine's Day/President's Day weekend. Geoff (the owner) and John (from the rental company) were incredible and would get 5+ stars. The only reason I would not give this cabin a 5 star is the bathroom set up. The master and another bedroom shared the downstairs bathroom. The downstairs bathroom didn't compare to the quality of the rest of the cabin. The upstairs bathroom was very cute and quaint. We also had no pillow cases for the futon or trundle or sleeper sofa sheets. The kitchen was extremely well stocked and we ate most all meals in the cabin. We were excited to wake up the first morning to snow. Even though the road up to the cabin is steep, it was well treated so snow did not stick to the road up. The drive was short (20 minutes) to Cataloochee ski area which was a main reason we were coming. The hot tub was very nice and the view was beautiful. We did have a fire in the pit outside even though the temperatures were extremely cold the weekend we stayed (17 degrees the night we built the fire). The gas fireplace inside was great since we kept it going almost the entire time. The cathedral ceilings in the great room are beautiful. There were plenty of board games and the kids enjoyed air hockey and foosball. The game room upstairs is loud if kids are up early and you are trying to sleep in the master bedroom because it is right over the master. My favorite part was the wall of windows and cathedral ceilings in the great room with a beautiful view of the distant mountain ranges.

Amazing getaway in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin, it was perfect in every way and the views were amazing. Friday we went and drove on the Blue Ridge Parkway and seen the most beautiful sights. We took the Devils Stair Case and it was magical, with the fall colors of raining leafs. We also went though the wheels of time, which we all enjoyed. Saturday we explored the Biltmore(such a fairly tale)and of course tried every wine on the list. Legends was a great little local sports bar that we stopped at to watch the Florida Gator game and I was very surprised to see so many Florida fans. We did however finish the 2nd half at the cabin on the radio in the truck by the firepit!! Sunday we drove to Cherokee and went exploring. We did stop for an hour at the casino but no luck:(

This cabin is in a great location. It's a short trip in any direction to see so many amazing sights! I will definitely come back to this same cabin for my next trip to the Smokey Mountains! The owner Geoff and the Property Manager John were very accommodating, personable as well as helpful! I would recommend this cabin to anyone!

Thank you for the great hospitality and sharing your"Gem". We're already talking about coming back up next spring or summer with my son.
