About Jeff or Jennifer Wasilewski

Married since 1990 with 3 beautiful children and 1 grandchild. Just one left in the nest. We live in the nice humid state of Florida so we enjoy the trips to the cool mountains whenever we can.

Jeff or Jennifer Wasilewski purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Jeff or Jennifer Wasilewski chose Bryson City Area

So many things to do. We discover something every time we visit. The area offers so much without the busy traffic, noise, and tourist traps of other destinations.

What makes this cabin unique

We really enjoy the peacefulness of this property. The overlooking view of the spring fed lake. The fishing, hiking and outdoor activities are right out our back door. Its a place where we hope you will enjoy as much as we do.

Mountain cabin delightful

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was just as described! The hot tub on a deck surrounded by trees is a real treat! Tricky driveway for a Ford F150 truck- but doable! Delightful stay!

Very nice. Just as pictured.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It was very homey, comfortable and clean. The owner gave excellent directions both to get to and once at the cabin.This was our first VRBO rental and it lived up to what it said. The location was close to fun activities like white water rafting and renting a pontoon (we also rented the tube and had a blast tubing!) Loved having a washer/dryer. I would definitely recommend this property!

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our weeks vacation at this cabin was everything we dreamed plus more. The decks are so peaceful. We had 6 people with plenty of room for everyone. The cabin was exactly as described and I would recommend to everyone. Its close to activities, 20 minutes to Bryson City, and close to Great Smoky National Park. Our kids were unplugged all week and never missed it! This cabin is perfect for any getaway.

Beautiful, peaceful cabin retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our girls' getaway. The description and photos just cannot explain how wonderful this place is. There were absolutely no problems. Jeff and Jennifer keep a beautiful place, and Gary (the caretaker) does a magnificent job taking care of the place! I hope to be back very soon and WILL recommend this beautiful cabin nestled in the mountains to all my friends.

What a great place to stay. The owner responded quickly to all inquiries. The location was so convenient to all the activities we planned - white water rafting, swimming, tubing, and hiking. Hanging in the hot tub was a great way to relax at the end of our busy days. Our family enjoyed this cabin so much. We are definitely planning a repeat stay for next year, but for even longer.
