About Robert D Zarr

Retired USAF Officer who loves the mountains, having been raised in Montana and now residing in Alabama. I love animals and permit the cabin to be pet friendly without an extra deposit or fee.

Robert D Zarr purchased this chalet in 2001

Why Robert D Zarr chose Bryson City Area

Discovered this property after I retired and loved the rural area and beautiful views from the wonderful deck. This is a place to go to be totally relaxed and SORRY for a few days.

Beautiful, Relaxing and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this cabin. Mr. Zarr was quick to respond and the booking process was great. The cabin was just as described but much better than the photos shown here. Thanks so much for accepting our Fur Babies, as they always travel with us. Our whole experience form booking to check out was wonderful. The only negative thing was we had to check out and go back home. We would highly recommend this cabin to everyone we know. Thanks again for sharing your cabin with us.

Beautiful location, well equipped

  • 4 of 5

Property is well located with easy access to activities at the same time being quiet and secluded. The owners are great to work with and have thought of everything you might need for an extended stay including a blender in the kitchen, full size laundry, detergent, plenty of towels, supplies. Nearby Ingles market is great for all the grocery you need to cook with. The carpet has seen some years and needs to be replaced.

Nantahalla Outdoor center is quite close and we enjoyed whitewater rafting, ziplining, tubing. We went to Cherookee and enjoyed "unto the hills" at the outdoor theater.

I would give the property 4.5 stars if we were not bothered by the fleas in the carpet and surrounding areas. My dog who has not had 11 fleas in her 11 years was covered in them. I called Bob & Tasha, the caretaker. Bob was very nice and paid for the medication needed and Tasha brought the medicine to me. But the medicine could not work soon enough. I bathed her twice but the fleas would jump right back on her. We were bitten quite a bit too by them.

Owner's Response: The cabin will remain a pet friendly haven but we will endeavor to control the flea population with the most currently available deterrents. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Stecoah Cabin 5 weeks in the last 7 years. Its comfortable, has everything you need and the view is great. There's nothing like sitting on the deck watching the clouds drift through the Stecoah valley after an evening rain as the sun sets. The best thing is the quiet and remoteness of Stecoah and the access to Fontana lake. Its a great get away. The owner couldn't be easier to deal with.
