Excellent getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed 8 nights with our 9 month old and had a wonderful time. We had family pop in for a few days on the front and back end of the trip and there was ample room for all. We were able to "disconnect" and have some down time, spent every evening with the fire and/or the hot tub after the kids were down! It was the best, most serene place to recharge. We also spent much time by the lake and grassy areas and time exploring nearby cities and biking at Tsali. Due to another review I read we did bring our own iron skillet, large pot, large cutting board, and a few knives which were helpful-- but we also cooked every meal at home. Otherwise had everything we needed. Thanks you for letting us use your beautiful cabin. Clean, serene, and just perfect. We will likely be back again!

We had a wonderful time in this cozy cabin with an incredible view of the fall colors in the mts.

The hot tub, fireplace and view were incredible. It was very private and we were able to relax and unplug completely with no WiFi or cell service

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was very enjoyable. We had fresh fish on two nights from the lake. Cabin is very nice and comfortable for 3 families. . Parking and turnaround takes some getting used to. It is a nice place to relax and enjoy the outside. Squirrels run around in the trees. Saw some really unusually birds. No idea what they are. If you want to get away from all the noise and traffic , this is a great place to go. Good communications with owner. Thanks Jeff

Had everything we needed for a perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5

A group of my paddling friends and I wanted to kayak the Nantahala river - we typically camp but decided this might be worth a try. We were so pleased with the cabin - wasn't too hot or too cold, open floor plan kept everyone together and there was such a connection with the outdoors here plus it was so QUIET! Neighbor had some really awesome vintage boats - didn't get to meet him but maybe we can next time. Kitchen was a little thin on pots, pans and silverware but we managed fine (we probably use the kitchen quite a bit more than most). Everyone had ample room to sleep and get ready for our days on the water. Will consider this one for our next trip!

This place was very nice to stay. It was just like home except it was a little more quiet. We loved spending the evenings in the hot tub or relazing on the lower deck. We had plenty of room for our family of 5.

Cosy and near everything you need for perfect vacation.

Property with character but lacking outdoor space for small children. Nearby private lake offers you a spot to swim and fish.

About Jeff or Jennifer Wasilewski

Why Jeff or Jennifer Wasilewski chose Almond

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.
