The directions listed are good and you MUST follow them when you get off 74, otherwise you will be lost. The ventilation system works well and the place is fully stocked with kitchen supplies. The WiFi is not that great. So, do not rely on it for much. There is an outside deck area with a sitting area. The sitting area has a light that DOES NOT WORK. We had to resort to using candles. There were a few roaches in the freezer door. READ THIS: You book your trip and pay for it. BUT they put a $500 dollar hold on that amount SEPARATELY from your paid money. So be aware of that. The water from the faucet in the house smelled like straight sulfur and is not good to drink. Definitely get bottled water. However, everything else with the place was fine. I will not be back.

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and a perfect fit for my family. It's very quiet and peaceful. The only downfall was the sleeper sofa. The mattress is flimsy and the frame is broken so it isn't usable. The lighten is very dull, maybe some new bulbs will help.

Nice Cabin. Smell of water is horrid.

  • 3 of 5

We just stayed at headwaters cabin. The cabin itself was clean and nice. The water smells terrible! Anytime the water is turned on there’s a terrible rotten egg/sulfur smell and it does not go away while running hot water. Hot showers for the 2 days we were there were awful due to the smell. I didn’t dare cook with the water. I bought water from the local ingles to cook with. There’s also a 10am checkout. It’s not a big problem. I just felt it was important to add to anyone who likes the later checkouts cause it can not be changed as it states in the agreement you sign.

The chalet was beautiful & clean! There were a couple issues, but with a phone call, the realty owner took care of them. We enjoyed the hot tub!! Would rent again!

Less than expected

  • 3 of 5

We got there Saturday and realized that this home has another good-size house between it and the water. When we got down to the creek, it was horribly polluted. We lost power, which, because this home has well water, we also lost water. When the water was on though-it smells like straight sulfur/ eggs. The interior of the home is nice, with all basic needs met. It was our experience however, that we rented a very expensive tent. Very disappointed that there was no generator or any offer of other accommodations. It really put a damper on our first family trip to the mountains.
