The cabin was spectacular. Not one but TWO hot tubs which was great for 10 guests! The view is amazing from all four decks. The kitchen is well equipped, even for large parties. The drive up the mountain can be steep depending on which direction you come from. I recommend coming from Wears Valley Rd. Plenty of space for parking and the neighbors were pleasant. The kids liked the loft on the 4th floor, the two youngest slept up there on the mats that were there. Plenty of towels provided. This was a very memorable vacation and we would rent this cabin again next year!
Loved the cabin. It is absolutely beautiful. The best are soo comfortable. The stairs are a little hard on the knees after a few days. But other then that the cabin is awesome.
The pictures don't do it justice! We all had enough room to spread out and relax. It was clean, beds was comfy, and they kept in touch to make sure we didn't need anything. It was easy to get to and close enough to all of the attractions. We will definitely be staying here again.
Everything was fantastic for a great price. The grounds and services were all on point. I would highly recomend this cabin and rental service. In fact our group is thinking of making this the annual location for our retreat!
Property and view was nice, but house needed updating. TV in main living area was small. All other TV's were not flat screen. Couch and pillows were worn & faded in main living area. Bathroom toilet lid in master room was stained black around rim, toilet paper holder was loose and roll was not stable. Shower in master did not drain well. Rocking chairs and tables on porch were dirty with mold, as well as floor. There were not rocking chairs on all porches. Walls and upstairs cubby area extremely dusty. There was not enough dining space for all of our party. There was only a table that sat 8...house sleeps way more. Only 1 wine glass in kitchen. Many other pieces (plates, bowls) were chipped. We have stayed in much nicer accommodations and would not return to this particular property.
