Very nice get away

  • 4 of 5

We drove from Tampa, FL, and after two days in Watkinsville, GA, at a friends farm—we traveled the long way through Highlands and discovered that the leaves were at their peak colors (I’ve never hit it at such a perfect time). The view from the cabin turned out to be very nice also. The only disappointment, which was nobody’s fault, were the noisy crows, and the serenading howls of neighboring dogs possibly incited by coyotes. I was hoping for thrushes and other song birds. The cabin was snug and clean, and pretty sound-proof as well. The kitchen had everything one would need and it was all spotless. We lit a fire a couple of times, although my son (40 year old) had to reach around in the fireplace to find the starter. Apparently there’s a remote—but we never found it...and it ran out of gas during the one cold night (no biggy as the A/C worked for hot or cold and the house was never cold.

During our stay we hiked around the Blue Ridge and also a long grueling 12 miles of trails up to Lake Fontana—following the Road to Nowhere from Bryson City. We barely got down before it was dark, and walking through the 1/4 mile tunnel in the dark was a little disconcerting to say the least. It rained on our last day there, and that night we managed to light a fire at the fire pit with wood we’d bought and enjoyed the stars. ((The Milky Way was visible on several nights—something that never occurs in Tampa)). In the past I’ve stayed in cabins near Stecoah, Gatlinburg, Sylva, Blood Mt (GA), Blueridge (GA), and others—and would give this destination high marks, especially for the more than reasonable price.

Perfect family getaway cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Family of five, 3 kids ages 4-7. This was a perfect spot for playing and exploring and relaxing! Close enough to see the sights, secluded enough to enjoy exploring and relaxing away from too much action. Cabin had everything we needed. We all had a fantastic weekend together, and the kids favorite part was trying to climb the slope behind the cabin. Needless to say, they slept well after hours of that. We hope to return!!

This cabin was in a perfect location and had everything we needed to enjoy a week in the mountains.

  • 4 of 5

We picked this cabin based on its central location to all the places we wanted to visit during our week in the mountains. When we did have time to kick back we enjoyed the front porch, hot tub and fire pit. The washer and dryer were a great plus also. Our sight seeing ranged from the Fontana Dam to the Biltmore House and down to Dry Falls east of Franklin. The Wheels Through Time Museum, the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad, and the Mast Store in Waynesville were also on our list and enjoyed. Perfect cabin for us.
