Our family has enjoyed this special gem for over 9 years. There is always something magical about this place. You feel closer to the stars at night, like you can reach out and grab one. The cool evenings are amazing as fireflies endlessly dance amongst the mountain landscape. During the day, the mountain views offer a burst of tranquility with Carters Lake touching the foot of the Appalachian's. We have made this place our home, our special place away from it all.
Bill Saylors purchased this cabin in 2007
The area is full of history. Since we like history, mountains and relaxing tranquility, we have found that our family have loved this place each and everyday. Its nestled amongst some of the most sublime scenery, but yet your a quick 20 min drive into town. Talking Rock Creek Resort has creature comforts throughout the mountain community that will keep curiosity yearning for more. You can't just come here one time and never return. It really has it all. Time to unwind and take in what nature has to offer, while you have all the comforts of Home Sweet Home.
Close to everything. But yet secluded in your own little piece of heaven.
Plenty to do within the Talking Rock Creek Resort, as well as Carters Lake across the way. We like that we're close to the Main Entrance (1/2 mile) so we can be on our way quickly when we go sightseeing or etc.
Thank you for vacationing at the Walela Lodge. We're so happy this place delivered the expectations you deserved.
My family and I (my husband, my 3 children aged 9, 6 and 1, my mother, and my brother) spent Christmas and New Year's Eve at Walela Lodge. We had a wonderful time and felt really comfortable there. Everything needed is provided: fully functional kitchen, washer and dryer, some board games, tv, wifi, dvds and vhs, books, sheets and blankets of course, ... There is a fenced area perfect for the dogs to go out. The owner was extremely quick to answer when we had a question or concern and recommended a few places that we could visit. The area is lovely and if you are looking for a place to unwind and recharge your batteries, Walela Lodge is the perfect spot. Yes Walela Lodge is not a luxurious cabin (referring to the one negative comment) but it offers plenty. The little imperfections or issues we might have had were really not a big deal and we were able to fully relax and enjoy our stay. This cabin is a fabulous deal seeing how many people can sleep in it and the fact that you can bring your pet for no extra charge!
Our family really enjoyed our stay at the cabin. The views are spectacular with plenty of room on the deck for viewing. Cozy den and space in the 3 bedrooms for all of us. The cabin was clean and well stocked with essentials. Great Thanksgiving getaway! Be sure to go to the upper damn park if you visit!
We loved the property! And what a view! Very clean and cozy. The three levels gave us all our own space and privacy! Also very quiet to just sit on the back deck with a cup of coffee and relax. Very nice!
We had several issues and we tried to contact the owner and he would not reply. He would reply to you prior to your stay bit when we got to the cabin and had problems he wouldn't return no calls.
The basement room was so hot we had to bring the mattress upstairs to sleep. The toilet in the basement wouldn't flush correctly. The front door lock is about to come off. We had to use a ice chest to keep our milk and eggs cold. We found scorpions in the pots and pans. This cabin is so cluttered up you can't walk without moving, doesn't match one bit. It's like they just buy stuff from garage sales and place it in the cabin. I'm giving you my honest opinion if I would have knew half of what I just wrote I would have saved my money, so please listen to me if you don't want to waste your time.
This cabin is like a home away from home! It is spacious and cozy at the same time. Hidden in the woods, it is just a little bit of heaven on earth. We loved it It is clean and well maintained. The owner added a personal touch by calling us upon our arrival to insure that all was well. Thank you.
We were just tickled when we arrived at this cabin on Christmas Eve. Despite the rainy weather this year, the cabin was so cozy and inviting. My husband is disabled and has difficulty with stairs. With a bedroom, kitchen, bath and balcony porch on the main level, he was able to enjoy the view and avoid any stairs other than the 2 shallow ones on the main level entrance. On the lower level, our friends who joined us on Christmas day, were able to enjoy a private sitting room with their own bath and bedroom. The porch swing on the lower level porch was the perfect spot to sit enjoy the view and watch our dogs play in a small fenced yard. This yard is sloped steeply so watch your step! Especially if its raining! The dogs LOVED it. The quaint loft bedroom also had it's own bathroom and a telescope for viewing the stars or the lake. We did some site seeing in the area. We saw a Golden eagle while we were at the dam. All in all, a wonderful get away.
