Perfect Time!

  • 5 of 5

Great experience from beginning to end. Everything about what this cabin is awesome.

Easy access, but very private that provided the true mountain feeling.

The way up to the cabin is breath taking, and make me wish to come back as soon as possible, yes, it’s that nice!!!

Accommodations in the cabin are very comfortable, and it comes with everything you may need.

If you in pursue of a romantic time or just to recharge from daily hassles, I strongly would suggest this cabin.

As last, as the this cabin was not enough of 100% positive experiences, the neighbors are very friendly, therefore it was a whole “Perfect Time”

Family Christmas/vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family Christmas/vacation since my children were married. We all met at the cabin and enjoyed a week together. The cabin is beautiful. I could see myself living there! :) I was pleasantly surprised at how well stocked it was. Not sure of what the cabin had I brought pans, griddle, and crock pot from home and didn't need them. The cabin was very clean and comfortable. There was enough for the children (19 months - 15 years) to do at the cabin on the two days it rained. The other days we enjoyed being outside and going for walks. The boys loved investigating in the woods. This was a great time and I am hoping this was the first annual Christmas/vacation for us. Thank you.

I just left today and I want tot go back RIGHT NOW! Breathtaking inside and out!!

  • 5 of 5

3 generations of my my family were together on vacation for the first time! I was initially concerned about my 87 year old grandmother getting up the stairs. She was so captured by the beauty of the cabin that she step-by-step went upstairs to the 2nd floor to check out how homey and "nice" it was. They next day she walked downstairs to the basement while my siblings played pool. My mom walked in and said, "WOW"!!! My brother, after investigating all of the rooms, concluded the loft best fit his grandiose flair and Saturday college football games. My sister and I spent countless hours talking on the massive deck while watching the spectacular mountain views and hummingbirds. My first morning, as I walked into the morning dew around 5AM on the top deck, softly I thought "Aww, those 2 deer look real, and then one moved...then I spotted a foe and 2 fawns near the brush. Talk about a welcome party- my style!! We were so blessed to be in heaven on Earth. Stocked to the max with everything you could possibly need. The neighbors are all as sweet as can be. The locals and the flea markets were fun. Great getaway and R&R. So grateful to share THIS vacation at such a special place. Thank you so much to the moon and back!

Beautiful Cabin, wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Back in Florida after our first family vacation in the States! We had a wonderful time in such a beautiful cabin~

We planned our trip with very short notice, and looked up so many cabins on VRBO but finally and to our surprise this cabin was available! I have read in other reviews that once there, the cabin was even more stunning than the pictures showed online, and here I am agreeing 100%!

The cabin is lovely, inside and out, very modern, equipped, comfortable, cozy, and great amenities.

Loved the fireplace, it is stunning! we really enjoyed it day and night! The views are gorgeous, either sunny or cloudy, you cant beat the masterpiece of the Creator! The surroundings very quiet and private! My kids loved the basement, they played ping pong, pool and just spent time enjoying everything that was different to their every day life. We enjoyed our smores by the pit-fire, that was very special, walking through, exploring the mountains, saw many deers! We need to go back to see bears! Spent a lovely Christmas and delightful birthday with a delicious Argentinian BBQ (asado) on the deck grill!

I would definitely recommend this cabin for anyone looking to relax, take it easy, and enjoy the blessing of nature and family! We posted many pictures to our Facebook, and are looking into sharing some with you all on the cabins FB page!

The cabin is tastefully decorated, many unique touches that made it so special! Our 3 kids just loved this first cabin experience, beats Orlando and all the parks there! lol! We really needed this time to wind down and be able to enjoy quality time with the family. One thing we didn't get was snow, although we did tube and ski at Catalooche Ski Resort. But a white Christmas at the cabin, that would have been the cherry on top, but I guess we will just have to plan our next trip and give it another chance! lol. Many things to see and do in the near area, too much to fit in one week, but wouldn't change a thing! We just watched all the video footage and are reliving every detail!

May you too enjoy it as much as all of the people that had the blessing to do so!

I want to thank Mauro for being so nice and helpful, he was very accessible too.

Happy New Year!

First time in North Carolina

  • 5 of 5

We have used VRBO before as a way to find nice properties in which to stay for our vacations in Florida. About a month before our vacation, last-minute we decided to go to NC, somewhere near the Smokies. We originally wanted to be close to Asheville, but after scrutinizing (and I do mean fine detail scrutinizing) about 100 different properties, this is the one we picked because of how beautiful it was and all the amenities it included, and activities nearby. The cabin and it's view is absolutely wonderful and relaxing. We of course saw all the pics online, in real-life the cabin is even better. When we got there, stood on the porch with our kids gathered around us, peering into the cabin door window before we unlocked the door, it was a too good to be true moment. The cabin is a short distance off the main roads, and only minutes away from Murphy. Yet you feel you are in a remote area of the mountains. There is ample hiking and activities close-by, as well as the typical high-adventure touristy things like white water rafting, horseback riding, gem mining, ziplining all within an hour's drive. I would recommend Carolina Outfitters for rafting and Wildwater for Ziplining, both at Nantahala Gorge; and A Step Above Stables in GA for horseback riding. The weather was mostly sunny and 80-85 degrees every day, so we lucked out there. It did rain our very last day, which gave us time to fully enjoy the cabin, and spend time checking out downtown Murphy. The most interesting store in Murphy was Jem's Gems, owned and operated by Jane and her daughter Falcon. If you are ever in Murphy, you have to check this place out. Beautiful, hand-crafted, artistic jewelry made from gems from all over. These gals are very personable and spent a lot of time with our kids talking about gemstones from the area and the process it takes from getting the gemstone to the one-of-a-kind final jewelry product. They also have all sorts of other interesting items in

their store.

Last but not least, we found Mauro to be very helpful answering all our questions about the cabin and what we were wanting to do for our vacation. We eat healthy, mostly organic. We did not eat a single meal out, and found the kitchen to have everything we needed. Mauro responded immediately to our communications, and he called us the day before checkout to see how our vacation went, and to give some checkout reminders. We felt this was very nice of him. This was a 10/10 vacation and we hope to return here soon!!!
