Near Cherokee -Laurel Ridge Cabin is a Gem in the Heart of the Smokys. This two bedroom, two bath log cabin is just minutes from Cherokee, making it convenient to both sides of the Great Smoky Mountains. Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are just a scenic drive through the National Park, and Bryson City with the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad is less than fifteen minutes away. With a paved road up to the cabin, Laurel Ridge Cabin is easy to drive to and easy to find.
At the top of the road, Laurel Ridge Cabin provides a view of the mountains across the valley. The cabin has a fully equipped kitchen, a cozy living room with gas stove under the vaulted ceiling. There is a gas grill on the deck and a fire-pit down the stone stairs thru the hillside garden. After a day of exploring the Smokies you will be looking forward to relaxing in the hot tub in the side yard.
I rented this cabin for my 3 friends and I for a spring break trip to the Smokies. Because of the likelihood of snow in the Smokies in March, I would definitely recommend staying in a cabin verses tent camping.
After a long day of hiking in the snow, it was nice to come back to the cabin's fire stove keeping the cabin warm and ending the night in the hot tub was the icing on the cake.
The beds were very comfortable, the bathrooms were nice and clean, and the kitchen had lots of room and cookware for making big meals. The grill was even stocked with propane for grilling burgers!
Watershed was very responsive and accommodating to us and even provided us with information on the mountain conditions. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for an enjoyable getaway in the Smokies. This was by far our most enjoyable spring break trip!
We were pleased upon arrival to Laurel Ridge. The cabin was clean, hot tub was warm and it had all we needed and could ask for except NOT enough pillows. We would have liked 4/bed but there was only 2. It'location was perfect, close to everything but the privacy the mountains provide.
Absolutely one of the best places we've stayed.
Thank you for sharing
We have had a lovely sojourn at this mountain hideaway cottage! The property was spec and clean, very well maintained; we found everything just as was in the description. The owner was absolutely great and approved our booking instantly. The agent at VRBO was courteous and got the property booked for me in few minutes, I simply took his words for granted when he confirmed that the price through VRBO is transparent and there is no hidden charge whatsoever.
I would greatly recommend this property to anyone with a small family (3-4 peoples) only. The cottage is maintained by Watershed management and I must say ! Ms. Courtney was absolutely great customer service rep. She is sweet, kind and amazingly responsive to any queries I had prior to arriving at the property. There are plenty of attractions nearby in Bryson City. We had a GREAT quality time spent at the cottage! We would surely love to visit it anytime later in life...SO LONG "Laurel Ridge Cabin"...Best Wishes.
Had a wonderful stay in Laurel Ridge Cabin. It was perfect for 2 couples to getaway and spend a relaxing weekend. Cabin was very clean and well furnished. Complete with the perfect touch in decorating and quality furnishings. Loved the large front porch and spent much of our time sitting there even with the unfortunate smoke from wildfires that was evident in the air. It was very close to the casino and Bryson City which we enjoyed. Looking forward to returning soon and staying in the cabin.
Cabin was very clean and well furnushed. Even the yard was beautifully landscaped. Hot tub was newer, very clean, and hot tub towels were provided. Driveway is steep (most are in area) but paved and in excellent condition.
Cabin has a queen bedroom/ bath upstairs in addition to the queen bedroom/ bath downstairs. Kitchen is nice (loved having a dishwasher) but needs a few more utensils and dishes. Gas grill had a full tank plus a spare : ). Some firewood for fire pit and a starter was provided. Parking was good for area. We had a mid side SUV, 14' trailer, and trike motorcycle. Larger combos may have issues maneuvering up the hill or at parking area. Try to arrive before dark your first night. Driveway isn't well marked and on a curve. Outside of cabin has good lighting and the porch light was left on for us but you can't see the cabin from the road.
Reserving was easy, check in/checkout instructions were very clear but take their advice and look over the cabin as it may take a day to hear back from them. ......The cabin below is also a vacation rental (Rising Ridge Cabin). Our first night they had 20+ people partying, cars parked all over the yard and other cabin's parking areas. When partiers started breaking trees down for firewood we called but didn't hear back until the next day. She was very apologetic but not concerned.
We had no issues with the cabin. Their maintenance is super. Overall a gorgeous cabin !
A buddy and I rented the cabin to serve as home base for a week of riding in the Smoky Mountains. The photos on the site are accurate. It's a beautiful property that is exceptionally clean and well-maintained. You can tell the owners really cared about all the details that would make the place feel like a home away from home, and that's exactly what it felt like. It was perfect, after long days of riding, to come back, have a couple of cold ones on the porch, prepare meals in the kitchen or on the grill, and unwind in the hot tub. I've already recommended the place to a friend, and I will certainly be back the next time we're riding in NC.
