Amazing, breathtaking, and spectacular!!

  • 5 of 5

My family experienced three beautiful days in Milky Way cabin. The pictures provided do not do the cabin justice! The cabin is amazing in that it is well stocked with anything you could possible need. The views from the screned in back porch were my favorite part along with the hikes with my family on the property. Angie and Troy were so very helpful and really helped to answer all of our questions.

If you are lucky enough to spend a few days on Milima Ranch, I will promise you that you will not regret it.

Everything we hoped for and more!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect, long weekend we experienced at the Milky Way. I'm not sure that our expectations have ever been so perfectly met or exceeded in any of our travels across this beautiful earth. The pictures and descriptions of the cabin are terrific, but honestly can't do it justice. We wanted a secluded getaway from our busy lives and we felt like we were on our own mountainside. The cabin faces a beautiful rolling valley with nothing but the hiking trails and mountain behind it. Yet, we were minutes from the highway and a short drive to towns, including Asheville.

The amenities were top shelf with sumptuous beds (well, the master is the only one we occupied!), a fully stocked kitchen, comfortable living room seating, beautiful bathrooms and our favorite - an awesome wood burning fireplace!

Angie and Tony were fantastic - helpful, friendly and responsive.

Our only regret was leaving... and we're already planning a summer return with our kids to take advantage of all the activities we avoided on our detox weekend!

Truly a gem!

This is a wonderful place to get away from your busy world!!

  • 5 of 5

We hiked on the private trails that had tremendous views. The workout was great as some of the climbs were perfectly challenging. We relaxed by the fire during the cool evenings, sat on the deck and caught up on reading while enjoying a glass of wine (maybe more than just one...lol) and grill out one night on the lower deck! Angie and Troy made a reservation at Chef's Table in Waynesville that was absolutely stunning. I travel for business a lot and the Chef's Table is truly amazing.

If you're looking for a get away to forget about life for a while, this is the spot. Thanks for the great location and hospitality!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Jim for your review! Sounds like you and your wife definitely enjoyed your stay at Milky Way! We are so glad! We thought you would enjoy the Chef's Table for dinner, it's our favorite place in Downtown Waynesville and we knew you would find it to be excellent as well. We like to share with guests the places and things we think are special in the area. We look forward to welcoming you back to Milky Way Cabin at Milima Ranch at another time!

"The MOUNTAINS are calling and I must go"

  • 5 of 5

MILIMA RANCH with its spectacular light shows of color, softness of the morning mists, painted backdrops of the mountains beauty. Was so much more than the pictures on the website could reveal. Its beauty, fresh air, peace, mineral enriched water, majesty, wonder, all gave us Mother Natures MAGIC.

The amenities and finishes of our lodge were amazing. From the views, inviting furnishings, cozy beds, stocked kitchen, and plenty of space, if traveling with family and friends, each cold have their own porch deck for privacy. ( at least thats what we are thinking for next year )

And if that isn't enough the manager gave us a warm welcome and personal tour. The caretaker was available for questions about the mountains, the property, hikes, apple picking, flora/fauna, all of Mother Natures delights.

We are taking it all home in our hearts. Bless all that make the MAGIC happen at Milima Ranch.

There are 4 gorgeous seasons here in the WNC mountains....you can't go wrong with returning any time of year!

2nd Stay at Milky Way

  • 5 of 5

Same great experience as last year. There is simply nothing to complain about here. High-end furnishings every where, from the grill to the beds and great internet service if you need it. The property offers plenty of trails with views like no where else. We love being able to drive to all the area attractions, but maintain the feeling of being in our own little slice of heaven. Highly recommended to everyone whether a family or just friends wanting to get away to enjoy the beauty of Western North Carolina.
