About Lucy or Len Myers

Len and Lucy grew up in Minnesota and having lived a number of post graduation years in southwest Florida, decided they missed having seasons and decided they wanted a more moderate climate than where they grew up and to escape the rat race.. They discovered the beauty and peacefulness of western North Caroline and fell in love with the mountains.

Lucy or Len Myers purchased this cabin in 2012

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is what was written in the guest book. When we booked our stay at your cabin, we had no idea we would feel so at home. The view is spectacular and the cabin is absolutely beautiful. It was a great escape from the south Mississippi heat. Thank you so much for the blackberry jam. It was a huge hit with my family. We are already planning our next trip! Thank you so very much for your kindness and hospitality.

Mountain Majesty

  • 5 of 5

With only three full days in the mountains, every day was spent out exploring. However, it was nice to have a quiet and secluded retreat to go to at the end of the day. Myers Snuggery provided that and more. The cabin was well-stocked, clean and relaxing! A note and a delicious jar of jam were waiting for us when we arrived. The drive up the gravel one-lane road was a little scary for this city girl, but I got used to it. (I drive a Nissan Altima and it made it up the road just fine.) There were no surprises as the cabin's description were on target. The cabin has a bookcase full of movies and books and there's a nice porch overlooking the mountains with two rocking chairs. A gas grill is supplied, but we didn't get a chance to cookout because of our limited time there. We did enjoy sitting out and looking at the stars in the evening.

I would highly recommend getting your own copy of The Wayward Traveler's Guide to Waterfalls and Backroads of Franklin & Highlands. There is a copy in the cabin, but we had our own. We took Highway 64 from Franklin to Highlands and stopped at all of the waterfalls along the side of the road. There is a page in the book that tells you how far each one is. We mapped it ahead of time. Make sure to walk down behind Dry Falls - especially if there's a lot of water from recent rain. Parking is limited so a weekday visit is better than a weekend. But it was awesome. For dinner, try Caffe Rel in Franklin. It may be attached to a gas station but the food is great and the price is very reasonable. We also drove to Bryson City and rode the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad and drove The Road to Nowhere.

There is so much more I could say, but as you can tell, I had a great time! Thank you Len and Lucy for a great cabin to call home at the end of the day! (Oh, and I've already provided the contact information to someone I know who was asking!)

Late honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

Me an my wife enjoyed a wonderful honeymoon in this cabin! It was everything we wanted. We loved grilling and looking out at the view on the back porch. And the cabin was even great distance away from fun activities. Thank you Len and Lucy for sharing your home with us.

Owner's Response: Hunter, It was our pleasure getting to meet you and your wife. Your excitement at wanting to find your own little piece of paradise in the mountains brought back many memories to our first visit to the mountains, and wanting to capture some of it for ourselves. L & L

Great-cozy cabin and location

  • 5 of 5

The Myers Snuggery is a good blend of simple and comfortable. Clean and well maintained. At 3,500 feet elevation, it has cool nights and clean mountain air. It is isolated and quiet with abundant bird life. We had a barred owl serenade us for two nights and wild turkeys are abundant. The cabin is comfortable with up to date amenities, but nothing ostentatious. Poor cell phone reception ... another plus! The region is spectacular with scenery, waterfalls, noisy creeks, full reservoirs. Highlands is a 20 minute drive if you feel compelled to retreat to civilization. I would recommend this cabin strongly. David G

We truly enjoyed our week here at your cozy cabin in the mountains. It was perfect for us, had everything we needed and the view was spectacular! The location was perfect for our daytime adventures out sight-seeing, hiking & waterfall viewing. Our evenings by the fireplace were so relaxing & memorable! We would love to have Len & Lucy as are neighbors. We loved it there so much, I'm sure we will be back!

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I travel to the Mountains several times a year for business. We found Myers Snuggery last year. We found the cottage so pleasant, so peaceful and convenient, that we have booked it for all our trips this year. Len and Lucy Myers are excellent and congenial hosts, and do everything possible to ensure a pleasant, clean place to stay while in the Smokies. We love this place!
