This is an incredible house and a great location. We spent a long weekend at Engelzar Cabin to go boating on Fontana Lake. Sandy, the manager, was great in providing us information about the marinas in the area and things to do. The house was beautiful - very clean, very well decorated and a great view. The kitchen was well stocked with lots of dishes, an assortment of glasses and lots of pots/pans. The house had everything we needed! The deck was great with lots of chairs, tables for dining and a wonderful hot tub. We also enjoyed using the pool table and air hockey.
This is a perfect house for a family getaway or a group of friends. The local marina, Prince Boat Dock, was also very accommodating and a great value to dock our boats for the weekend. When you go, definitely check the musical calendar for Stecoah Valley Arts Center - just a few miles down the road. The concert we went to was awesome. The Arts Center also has an incredible gallery of items for sale by local artists. The work is fantastic and very unique! Overall, a great weekend - the one negative was...it came to an end and we had to go home! THANK YOU!
We visited this cabin for Memorial Day Week end, everyone in my group liked the location and cabin very much, and Sandy was very helpful, she was nice and informative, we would like to work with her again.
My family, including 6 adults and 4 children stayed for the first time at Engelzar Cabin. We had a wonderful vacation and I found the cabin to have easy access and very close to hiking and water spots. We found the kitchen to be well stocked and there was plenty of room for all of us. We had access to Wifi, hot tub, hiking trails and a lake just an easy walk from our cabin. We also picked blackberries and enjoyed the beautiful view. We will definitely consider staying here again next year. I also want to note that the property managers were awesome to work with...Sandi and her husband were extremely quick to communicate when we were booking our vacation and also sent us extra information for the surrounding area. Sandi kept us informed when the electricity went out in the area and was also very kind in searching and sending to us a couple of items that were left in the home. Will definitely be back!
We visited Bryson City for the Polar Express adventure and stayed in this cabin for the weekend. It was our family of 4, my in-laws, my parents and my cousin. We all were very comfortable. The photos were exactly the same as they are on the website. The kids enjoyed the game room and the hot tub as well as we did. The cabin was very clean and spacious. We would definitely recommend this cabin to our friends and family.
We rented Engelzar so we could have a mini-family reunion for Thanksgiving this year. We had families from 3 different states all rendezvous in Bryson City for a Thanksgiving weekend and a ride on the Polar Express. The cabin was very comfortable for our group of 12 which included 5 children age 7 and under! Very comfortable sleeping arrangements and a very well stocked kitchen for cooking and serving a huge Thanksgiving Dinner. I can't even think of anything that we lacked during the preparation or serving of Thanksgiving Dinner (and we make a lot of food)! Huge bedrooms, great game room with pool, air hockey and a large TV with a Playstation 2 (games included). The well stocked game closet came in handy with the kids. From the deck with picnic tables out back to the rockers on the front porch, this cabin has everything that you need for a large group. Although we didn't use it, the hot tub on the deck was very inviting. We didn't use the gas grill either, but it was nice to have it available just in case.
One of the best parts (in our opinion) is that the approach to the cabin is very easy compared to many that we looked at. If you haven't rented a cabin in the Smokys, this is something that you need to ask about before you sign a contract. There are many beautiful cabins out there, but the access to some of them can really stress you out, if you know what I mean. Engelzar was very easy to find and to get to, and I had no problem renting it knowing that my kids and grandkids would be able to get there without a problem.
The photos are accurate, although the game room is larger than it appears in the photo. More than adequate parking for our 3 SUVs and a utility trailer. Very clean and very well maintained. Enough dishes to feed an army and everything that you need to cook for one too!
We also highly recommend the Polar Express train ride in Bryson City. We went after dark and the lights along the way were very pretty and the staff on the train made the trip a very enjoyable one for adults as well as the kids. Great places to eat in Bryson City are the Everett Street Diner and Jimmy Mac's on Main Street.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
I highly recommend Engelzar.
