Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our homeaway from home. Great three weeks of mystic sunsets, beautiful mountain views, and outstanding accommodations. Our second stay and we will return. The owner and property manager were available if needed.

Great place, Great views and Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at Mystic peak exceeded all our expectations. The Mountain Laurel and Rhododendron were in bloom and the sunsets were fantastic. Enjoyed the mountain golf at Sequoyah National and valley golf at Mill Creek. Very relaxing week. We'll be back.

Incredible views and total serenity

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at Mystic Peak, but it will not be our last. Your cozy home was warm and inviting and was perfect for just relaxing. It was a great stay and we especially appreciated the “white Thanksgiving” the weather provided. It is an easy one day drive from our home in Florida and the ideal Mountain escape. The views were everything other reviewers have sited and more. The cabin and amenities were beyond expectations.

The view from the deck in the evenings was great and we enjoyed having breakfast on the front deck. The furniture was very comfortable. Everything was super clean. The kitchen was well supplied with all the essentials, and then some. The rental process with Realty World was great.

Couldn't wait to get here...didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at Mystic Peak and the days moved slowly as we waited for our vacation to begin. This cabin is like a home away from home. It is a great location for exploring NC and beyond. We went to Highlands and Nantahala to hunt for-- and sometimes hike to--waterfalls. We somehow always end up in Tennessee and take the scenic way back--wait, they're all scenic!

We also did our share of gem mining at Rose Creek mine near Franklin, and visited a gem show nearby. My wife couldn't resist the urge to play Bingo in Cherokee one evening, and I even played too (and won $100)! We also took a ride on the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad out of Bryson City.

The new deck on the cabin is really nice and we took in the mountain views on our rest days. The cabin is well maintained and has everything you need whether you decide to stay there all week or make it your mountain headquarters.

Thanks again for a wonderful stay! We didn't see all the waterfalls so we hope to return!

Our Smoky Mountain vacation cabin is also close to many great areas; less than 5 miles away on Highway 64 is the start of one of the most scenic sections of road in North Carolina. It starts with the Cullasaja falls and then winds its way along parallel to the Cullasaja River past many beautiful smaller falls and scenic areas until you reach the town of Highlands where, for a change of pace, you can visit all the posh restaurants and unique boutiques. Along the way there is 'Cliffside Lake Park' or 'Lake Glenville' which are fun for sightseeing, swimming, fishing, boating and nearby hiking.
