                                                                  This cabin has all the comforts of home! Very cozy and the perfect set up for family and friends. If you enjoy solitude while also experiencing a comfortable relaxing setting this is the place for you. Comfortable beds and furniture.

                                                                  This cabin was beyond words.

                                                                  Whether you want to cozy up on the couch to a fire and movie, have a bonfire, soak in the hot tube with a scenic view or go into town for shopping or a craft beer there is something for everyone. It was an amazing weekend to unwind and I will definitely be going back!

                                                                  Fantastic Mountain Cabin, Awesome Views!

                                                                  Justin L.

                                                                  Was a great place to stay, Liz was great to deal with. Would highly recommend this cabin. Only downfall is the trash situation-you have to take it with you to the dump in Bryson City and it doesn't open until 1:00pm on Sundays. Other than that, was absolutely perfect. Am counting down the days until we can go back!

                                                                  Beautiful cabin with an amazing view!!

                                                                  Shannon S.Rocky mount, NC

                                                                  This was a lovely cabin! The view was unbelievable! We had everything we needed. If you need to stay connected with the outside world, just know the Internet leaves a lot to be desired (my teenage daughter was unhappy that she couldn't use Snapchat!) and sprint cell phone service is useless! My only suggestion would be the addition of a physical copy of the cabin guide. Since I did not have cell service or internet, I had to drive down the mountain to pull the guide up and take screenshots to reference! Overall, I loved it and would book it again in a heartbeat!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  The only internet available on the mountain is based on 3G cell coverage. The cabin has a cell based router, definitely not as fast as that available in cities.

                                                                  Verizon has the best coverage in the area.

                                                                  Amazing views

                                                                  Our family of 8 adults stayed at Sunset Ridge for a week. It is a beautiful home with incredible views and plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen is big and fully equipped. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms spacious with soft towels. The hot tub was clean and an amazing way to ease those muscles after hiking or rafting the Nantahala. We would definitely return.

                                                                  Great family cabin with spectacular views

                                                                  David K.Wadsworth, Ohio

                                                                  We stayed at this cabin with our 4 adult kids and a couple of their friends over the week of July 4th, 2017. The cabin was just as good, if not better than described! The cabin was very clean and nicely decorated. plenty of room for 8 adults! Views of the Smokey Mountains and Lake Fontana were spectacular! Hot tub was great! Very secluded and private.

                                                                  A bit of a challenge finding your way there, about a two mile drive along a narrow, winding road to the top of the mountain. Our GPS said we had reached our destination about 2 drives before the actual location. Just keep driving until the road stops!


                                                                  Almond, NC, USA
