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.

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.

Very very lovely setting at reasonable price. Cozy cabin for a romantic getaway!

  • 4 of 5

This is a rustic cabin with beautiful wood ceiling and floors in interior, fantastic porch for relaxing in a very peaceful location and easy quick access to Sylva, a cute little town with everything you need for your stay. We visited Cherokee, walked around in the Smokies and enjoyed local waterfalls. Owner is very easy to chat with if you need information.

Nice place. Reasonably accessible to Sylva.

  • 4 of 5

Cabin is as described. Basic, secluded, but cute. Potholes on access road were fixed during our stay. Still a tricky drive in.

Exactly what we thought it would be!

  • 5 of 5

The owner obviously loves the cabin and puts lots of thought and effort into its appearance and maintenance. It is a simple, one-room, cabin, but had everything we needed and expected. A few reviews have discussed the "hair-pin" driveway curve. We brought our Toyota Camry and were able to navigate the driveway just fine. Everything about our stay was just the way we thought it would be! We enjoyed our visit in Sylva!
