Guestbook comments from the owner

Shirl;



I have repeatedly attempted to post the following Review. At least on HomeAway, your last review is over a year old. DO YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO POST THIS?

THANKS AGAIN, Ron





MUCH MORE THAN WE EXPECTED! This is NOT the typical vacation rental. EXPECT TO BE VERY FAVORABLY IMPRESSED... First of all this home is on a totally private river front estate with the mountains all around. The home is very well appointed and decorated, with highest quality fixtures and appliances. The huge Living Room with high ceilings has four leather sofas providing plenty of room. There is a massive stone fireplace with remote control gas logs to take the "chill" off the mornings. The large "picture perfect" Dining Room has a second stone fireplace. All of this with views of the river and the mountainside beyond that. The Master Bedroom Suite is extraordinary. My grandsons didn't want to get out of the Hot Tub. We enjoyed the Fire Pit for Smores next to the river, and the extensive grounds for foot ball. So much to do in this area. Do not miss tubing or rafting down the river. As we were leaving, my grandson said, "I want to Stay! I don't want to leave!" We all agreed with him. DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS FINE VACATION HOME....

Better than fhe pictures!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised to find the house nicer than the pictures. The river was so beautiful, with quite a few rafters passing by. River was shallow enough for our two teenagers to enjoy swimming. We thoroughly enjoyed coffee out on the deck every morning. With table seating for 8 inside and out, everyone had plenty of room to dine. Kitchen is small, so I would recommend bringing some sort of storage containers for food and kitchen items. We had a great time...thanks for sharing your home with us.

This home is much larger than we all expected. It was a lot nicer than the pictures as well.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our trip. Our 11 month old really loved all of the animals and she really liked having the open space to move around as she pleased.

Our only complaint is something that the homeowner cannot control...the internet.

All in all, we had a great trip.

Wonderful and open.

Our family weekend was wonderful. We fished and played and there was plenty of room where no one was cramped under another. It was great. The home was inviting and pleasant.

Rivers Whisper Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time my family has stayed at Rivers Whisper. On both occasions we had a wonderful time. The house sleeps 10 so there was more than enough room for the 7 of us. We really enjoyed the large, secluded outdoor area, the fire pit was great for toasting hot dogs and marshmallow at night. On our first trip we did a lot of kayaking. The river was a little too high this time due to the heavy rains but we found plenty of other dining and entertainment in the local area. The Scottish Highland Parade with the bagpipers was great. There are a lot of great Breweries, Restaurants, Waterfalls and Antique Shops to keep us busy. Franklin is close to Waynesville, Cherokee and Higlands so the good times were endless! The Property Rental Agent was absolutely wonderful to work with. We called on her services a couple of times and she was extremely pleasant every time.

Perfect and peaceful

The Cabin was perfect and the view was awesome! I will definitely want to rent this cabin again. It was raining and cold the weekend we were there and no one seemed to care! Beautiful yard and area.

Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

What an absolute beautiful home & property! The convenience of having the river right outside the door to fish or just to sit & enjoy the beauty of the water & hills that lay beyond. We will definitely be back for a long fall weekend. Thank you so much for a wonderful relaxed Spring Break 2017!!
