Birthday Bliss

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin for the weekend of my 50th birthday. It was just what our little family needed! After reading the previous reviews, I was excited to see this winding and steep driveway.... And boy, that driveway did not disappoint! After the 3+ minute drive up the gravel driveway, we were rewarded with the sight of the cabin. Folks, the pictures are good, but they do not do the place justice. Once we were in the cabin, I was very impressed with how CLEAN it was! No cobwebs, dust, nothing icky in the corners... Just very tidy. Dan and Sheyla were great to communicate with. They let us know of a problem with the hot tub, which unfortunately meant we couldn't use it, and although I was disappointed, the cabin itself proved just what the doctor ordered. My husband, son, daughter, little dog, and I enjoyed our weekend being together, unplugging from electronics, etc. We will definitely come back to this cabin for a longer period of time, and take advantage of the close proximity to the Nantahala Outdoor Center (highly recommend the River's End Restaurant there), and to Bryson City. We ate a terrific Brunch on Easter Sunday (which was also my birthday this year) in Bryson City at The Cork & Bean Restaurant, inside the Everett Hotel. It was absolutely delicious, and had an extensive brunch menu! I think my favorite part (outside of the very cozy and very well-appointed cabin itself) was the drive alongside the river. If you are looking for a beautiful view, from literally the top of a mountain, and want to be secluded and truly away from it all.... This is the place for you!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We love this place!!! It is clean and cozy. It's fairly easy to get to nearby towns, but we didn't really feel the need to leave except to buy groceries. The best part was that the owners called to check on us after some bad weather went through. We are already planning a return trip.

Loved the cabin and all its amenities. Loved the location and nearby towns. On top of a mountain far away from the world. Enjoyed our time even with all the late seasonal snow we encountered. Great memories were made!!

Remote & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time, the cabin was perfect. Everything I had hoped for.

We spent most of our days antiquing and found the surrounding towns were very quaint and the people very friendly. It was nice to come back after a long day and sit on the deck in the hot tub.

Thanks for sharing your piece of paradise with us.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The long winding drive led to a cozy cabin with a beautiful view. Dan and Sheyla were wonderful to work with.

The cabin was perfect for my husband and I and our adult daughter. The weather was beautiful all week, but the temperature was cooler and my daughter was grateful for the electric fireplace that she snuggled by every morning and evening.

The kitchen had everything we needed including the cooking spray that I had forgotten to bring.

We spent part of one day exploring our own little mountain.I looked forward to seeing the sun pop over the mountains every morning. We did try the hot tub once, but with the cooler temps, I didn't feel it was warm enough to enjoy a good soak.

The cabin is peaceful and secluded, but centrally located to find plenty of things to do for the adventurous. We ate breakfast there every morning, then ventured everyday both to the north and south, enjoying waterfalls and hikes to some beautiful views(I recommend hiking to the top of Wesser Bald and climbing the fire tower and there is a nice waterfall nearby on Old River Road)

There is a nice little restaurant at the Nantahala Outdoor Center that we would also recommend..
