Great cabin!

November 19, 2015

This was a great get-a-way for me and my wife for our anniversary. Cabin was clean and well furnished and spacious. Loved the hot tub on the deck - very private and could enjoy being out side to enjoy the wooded surroundings. Very peaceful which was great. Enjoyed the part of the deck that was covered as we had some sprinkles the first evening. Thinking seriously about bringing the family next time.

Amazing Stay

July 9, 2015

It was our first time renting a cabin in the US and coming from Germany we we didn't know what to expect, we were AMAZED at our arrival! This was a luxury cabin, with so much detail and with all the amenities one could wish for. I felt like I was at a friends private home! We loved the whirlpool, the wood finish throughout the whole cabin,the kitchen, the bedrooms... we loved EVERYTHING! We cannot wait to go back and spend our whole summer there!

Great place to stay!

September 16, 2012

Wonderful cabin - clean, nice rooms, beautifully decorated, had everything you could possibly need. Don't go looking for a hotel in this area - none to be found. Nightly rate very reasonable, pictures online do not do this cabin justice! Have never stayed in a cabin that was SO VERY clean! Owners were great to work with, easy process. Highly recommend Second Nest!

East Lansing, Michigan
It was a wonderful stay. Thank you for sharing your perfect cabin with us. We really enjoyed watching all the deer in the yard. It is really a piece of heaven.

Canton, North Carolina
Thank you for sharing this wonderful cabin with my family. The cabin is well equipped with every amenity we would look for. The wildlife (deer) was awesome, can't wait to show off our pictures. Location is close to activities of interest but so secluded we felt like the only ones in Big South Fork. Next time we'll bring horses.

Knoxville, Tennessee
Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your cabin. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet and watching the wildlife. Hopefully next time we can stay longer.
