Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Lindy and Todd's cabin in Andrews was a perfect getaway for Thanksgiving. The rooms were very nice, and we especially enjoyed the hot tub! The cabin is well located near a number of parks and the Smoky Mountains. The property managers were very nice and helpful as well. Highly recommended!

Loved it, couldn't have been happier

  • 5 of 5

This was a getaway for my birthday and anniversary. Husband arranged for their to be flowers and a birthday cake waiting for us when we arrived. The property owner and property manager were super helpful in arranging this surprise. They were also very accommodating when I asked last minute if we could come in one day earlier.

The cabin was wonderful, had no issues. Would love for the fireplace to have a blower, but the glow was just great.

The creek outside was flowing and the sound could be heard perfectly on the deck. It was such a peaceful sound. The hot tub was a nice addition to come back to at the end of the day.

We will definitely be back and stay for more days next time.

P.S. if arriving in the dark, yes, that small path on the left is the road you take to get to the cabins. We were a little concerned when we got there because it was hard to see. But that was our fault for coming in so late.

Thanks again for everything!

Perfect Honeymoon Spot

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at this cabin. It was clean, cozy, and secluded. Perfect for a honeymoon. The backyard creek, hot tub, and fire pit were nice bonuses. Close to charming towns like Bryson City and Murphy. For the price, we couldn't recommend this cabin more highly.

A beautiful and serine forest getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came with our dogs for the week and we're more than impressed. This is by far the nicest place I have rented. Two full bathrooms, washer/ dryer, dishwasher plus all the creature comforts. The place is so well maintained and was super clean. The property itself is simply stunning. I can't really put into words how amazing this place is. We all loved it and can't wait to come back!

Beautiful cabin and we hope to go again.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this lovely cabin. It is much bigger than in the photos with a huge covered deck. We had to evacuate because of hurricane Irma and were so happy we had a cabin that took pets. Because of the evacuation we drove through the night. 17 hours later we arrived and were met by the lovely managers. One day they came to the cabin with bottled water as the hurricane had followed us to NC and they wanted to make sure we had water if the power went out. Although it was stressful for us waiting for the hurricane to hit Florida, we still managed to go out on lots of nice walks and also see a few waterfalls. It rained a couple of days however between the spacious cabin and deck we enjoyed a few relaxing days. Outside the cabin is the lovely creek. Our dog enjoyed splashing around in the creek and walking on the trails around Andrews. We did use the nice and clean Jacuzzi and the grill. The kitchen had everything we needed, we cooked all our meals there.

This is one of my favourite cabins (we have stayed in a lot) and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. I really hope we can soon. I think it would be great for people with children or pets. You won't go wrong with this cabin!

Owner's Response: Hi Shawn and thank you for taking the time to write this awesome review! I guess you all had a great time! You're review just confirms our theme that these cabins are a mountain paradise. We can't think of any better place to go for rest, relaxation and bonding with nature. And we couldn't do any of this without the help of Buddy and Marvadean! We are blessed to have them caring for our cabins. I guess this means we will be hearing from you again in the near future and we look forward to when that will happen:) Todd & Lindy Smith
