perfect little cabin

  • 5 of 5

I love this place! This is the second time we've stayed and I will definitely return. It is nothing fancy, but it meets our needs perfectly. It feels secluded without being too far from anything. If you want to cook it has the basics plus a grill, and the ability to bring our four-pawed friends makes it a perfect choice. It is maybe 15 min. from WCU, even less to Sylva. There is a pair of powered speakers that I plugged my iPod right into and the internet speed was plenty good enough to allow us to watch some Netflix without any problem. I have only stayed here in the summer so I can't speak to the heater's ability but the small window AC unit coupled with the box fan and ceiling fan will eventually get it to a comfortable temp., of course both times I've stayed were almost record-breakingly hot; this is the only (very minor) drawback I could report.

I fully intend to return.

We came for the Fall Colors.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for the entire month of October, We were doing a search for property and we chose October because of the wonderful Fall colors. The cabin is cozy and clean. It has a small desk and is equipped with WIFI. There is no TV, but that was just fine with us. It is convenient to Sylva and what it offers. The main highway is close also so that it is a quick drive to all of the attractions in the local area. October turned cold early this year and the cabin really isn't set up for nights that approach freezing temperatures, but the base board heater was sufficient to keep it above 70 even on the coldest nights we spent there. It is weather tight and quite comfortable under normal weather conditions. It may not be a five star cabin, but then I didn't pay a five star rental rate. Great value for the money !

Could not ask for a better location. As potters attending the Mountain Heritage Day festival, we needed something close and the peaceful setting was perfect. Spacious for such a tiny cabin, very impressed with the layout and cleanliness. will definitely come back

  • 5 of 5

We needed to find a place at the last minute due to Hurricane Irma. Lovetta was so kind, understanding and flexible with us, it made this stressful situation much easier to get through. The cabin is so cute!!! It was perfect has everything you need. It was so relaxing to sit on front porch in the morning drinking my coffee, breathing the crisp mountain air!! There is a grill so we spent a nice relaxing evening grilling too!! There is so much natural beauty to take in at the cabin you just cant get enough of it! Its a very peaceful place to stay. Its close to local shops if you are in need of anything. We were able to take in some local sites and visit a local brewery(Innovation Brewery) which was fabulous ate at the little food truck that was there "Cosmic Carry-out" which was delicious. This is a great area to visit. I would highly recommend this property and would love to come back in the summer next time. THANKS LOVETTA!! GOD BLESS YOU!

Great getaway

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful little cabin in the hills and woods. Very quiet and peaceful. We unplugged the wifi and enjoyed our lovely surroundings. Not far at all from Sylva-a great little town. The well water is delicious.
