We are available to assist you, and offer a few optional convenience services:

... Also available is our Shopping service. If you would like to arrive at the Cabin with your Groceries already stocked, ask for details, we will have everything waiting for you upon your arrival.

... If you would like to enjoy a Spa Massage Service at the Cabin, it is a good idea to book in advance to assure availability. Your Professional Massage Therapist will come to you, so when you are done, they quietly disappear and leave you to relax!

... If your vacation dates are during 'Season' or Holidays and you plan to rent a pontoon or fishing boat, it may be a good idea to reserve in advance! Lake Fontana is primarily National Forest, Smoky Mountains, and Federally owned, so the Lake is never 'Busy', but the few available rental boats do get booked up.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Guest Book Word for Word quote: I can not even begin to tell you how much we enjoyed the Cabin. It is cozy, beautiful, loved the Hot Tub (The boys loved the gameroom). On our adventures here we started at the Polar Express Train Ride! This was Great!!!!! Went river fishing - my Husband caught a 22 inch rainbow trout. It was unreal, the Boys wanted to fish the rest of the day. We went to GSMNP and it was the first time the boys saw snow and ice, Wow, were they excited! Thank You for your hospitality, we enjoyed everything and we will be back.

The kids wrote a little note of their own that said "The Big screen TV and reclining sofa were extra comfy"

Picture Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time in this cabin that will leave you with the feeling of pure relaxation. There were many things to enjoy but the balcony will be the most memorable because after we left she is now my lovely fiancée. This cabin was a great deal and a cherished memory.

We had a great weekend away at Up Up and away and will definitely be returning. We loved the views and the cabin was clean and comfortable. The bed was so comfortable we had the best sleep!!

Amazing cabin with many amenities and amazing views

  • 5 of 5

The hosts were very responsive, incredibly helpful, and accommodating during our stay at this cabin. The views from the porch, bedroom, and kitchen can’t be beat either! I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone (couple or family) wishing to have a fun and relaxing stay in the mountains.

Wonderful views, cozy cabin, Great Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at Up Up and Away! It was absolutely beautiful. It was cozy and stocked with all of the things we needed for the time we were there. The hot tub was a great addition to the home.

There was only one complaint I️ had, and that’s the short time we got to stay! I️ didn’t want to leave. It was a great escape and such a relaxing place to be. I️ would definitely recommend this home to anyone and everyone looking for a great time at such a good price!

Very clean, beautiful views, hot tub awesome

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and comfortable beds. The view of the mountains is spectacular. Could have used an air conditioner on second bedroom upstairs...good thing we brought an extra floor fan. A few dogs running wild when my son walked down the mountain, so carry pepper spray or a steak bone... they arent nice dogs. No internet either which disappointed me bc I wanted to get some work done. Otherwise very clean and great location. I would def refer a friend.

Owner's Response: Dear Barbara: Thank you so much for the wonderful review of Up, Up, and Away! We take great pride in the cleanliness of our cabin and hot tub and are so glad you enjoyed them so much. The view is just an extra special amenity that we are grateful and amazed at the beauty of it. We very much appreciate that you would be willing to refer others to our cabin. As the owners, we are so appreciative of the wonderful job that our rental agent, Kathleen, does for us. We give her and her staff a 5 star review! They have thought of everything to help you with your stay so that you can learn about the area. There is a very detailed Welcome Book that explains all the rules and gives an overview of the area, including the property in our development that includes hiking trails and the fishing pond. There are approximately 50 pristine acres to roam as green space and is at the top of the mountain. The area that you talked about is a public road that is down toward the bottom of the mountain and is used to get to the cabin. It is not a part of our development or close to our cabin. We thank you for your suggestion about the AC. We have AC in other rooms, overhead fans, an extra-large floor fan, and a portable fan in one of the closets. Many times it is not even necessary to use the AC because of the wonderful breezes and shade at the top of the mountain. In the Welcome Book, there is information regarding a hot spot/jet pack that you can rent through the rental agency and they will provide you with a Wi-Fi Box. We are sorry that you didn’t see that information. In closing, we would just like to reiterate how accommodating our rental agent and her company are. They are only a phone call away and have always responded promptly to anything that our guests have needed or had questions about. We hope that this clarification has been helpful. Again we want to thank you for choosing Up, Up, and Away out of all the cabins in the area and are glad you enjoyed your vacation! Janice and Mike
