“Family Reunion”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2016

We absolutely fell in love with this home! So much so, that I have sent a request to have a standing reservation for the same week every year for our reunion that is nearby. T The owners are the best I have ever worked with and have decorated the home wonderfully. The kitchen is well stocked enough so that from now own we will never have to carry a mixer, measuring spoons or anything that a person would ever need in a kitchen. I am already looking forward to next year.

Owner's reply: Thank you Wanda. We try to make it as comfortable for everyone as for ourselves when we are there. As you said, there is everything there to cook breakfast and a 7 course holiday meal. You and the family are on the reservation calendar for next year.

Our family stayed at Chestnut Lodge during Labor Day weekend. This home had everything we needed for our family of 7. The home is quite charming and was extremely comfortable for all of us. It is very spacious and even had a small fenced area in the back for our dogs to enjoy. The entire property is huge and very nicely maintained. The covered carport was an added bonus. The deck out back overlooks the creek and there is a BBQ where we were able to grill while listening to the soothing sounds of the creek. The location cannot be beat, as we were two minutes from downtown Bryson City, so it's easy to come and go as you please. The house is situated on Deep Creek and it was a delight to listen to the creek in the mornings and evenings. We were pleasantly surprised by the neighboring goats, who provided entertainment for our dogs. Chestnut Lodge is the perfect rental because it's close to all the surrounding activities and we will definitely return in the future.

Owner's reply: Thank you Arlet. We make it as comfortable for guests as we do ourselves.

Our stay here was wonderful. The property was well kept, and the owner stayed in contact despite the fact that they had a family emergency they still remained professional.

Owner's reply: Our number one goal is to make our home as comfortable as yours and for you to want to come back and enjoy the creek and Bryson City and the surrounding area.

Perfect location. House clean and accurate description. Large screened in porch where you can sit and listen to water at deep creek. We would sit on large screen in porch every night. You can walk right out of porch just a few steps and sit on deck which overlooks deep creek.The deck has a picnic table and chairs to sit and relax and enjoy the beauty. Little too cold to tube when we were there but you can tube right to house and get out on steps at house. Loved the privacy even though there is one house near it this rental sits back further close to water( so other house is not right beside you) so you can have your privacy. We went down Nantahala River rafting, went to Cherokee, park, Clingmans Dome, went to lots of waterfalls and hike all not far from house. Had everything you would need in kitchen to cook.House was beautifully decorated with the most unique decorations. Bedrooms spacious. Very close to downtown Bryson City to train depot and shops. Has a fenced in area for children/pets if needed. I just fell in love with house and location. Will book again next summer and take the grandchildren. Kathy and Dave are awesome owners who were so helpful in our booking of the house. Glad we found this vacation rental just perfect in all areas. Great location, plenty room, kitchen has everything you need to cook. Has washer and dryer. Gorgeous views of deep creek. Large back yard with beautiful trees and fire pit to build a fire beside creek. Highly recommended

We had a wonderful time at Chestnut Lodge.... We were suprised at how everything we needed was already there and then some.... This was our first home renting experience.. As we usually just stay in a hotel... But I'll have to tell you everything was above and way beyond our expectations... I had emailed Dave and Kathy several times in the months leading up to our visit... They were helpful and answered all of our questions .. We done a lot of firsts this time around.. As we have never stayed on the NC side of the smokies. Bryson City was a beautiful town, and movie night downtown was great.. Done some Geocaching while we were there and took a nice drive to Franklin to the mine... And during the evening if you drive to the Oconaluftee outlook outside Cherokee you can see the beautiful heard of elk almost every night!!!! We will defiantly be coming back... Thank you Dave and Kathy for everthing...

Owner's reply: We are very pleased that you enjoyed Chestnut Lodge, Bryson City and the North Carolina side, or the quiet side of the Smokies. We have tried to make Chestnut Lodge as comfortable as your own home and hope there are elements of relaxation, family fun, and vacation memories thrown into the mix. We love it and are extremely happy when our guests leave feeling the same way. Please, come back and visit again.

“Wonderful place to vacation”

Reviewed 6 Sep 2015

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Chestnut Lodge on Deep Creek. It was the perfect set up for my family and I which included an elderly grandparent and 5 children. It was easy to get in and out of the house for our elderly grandfather and the location was beautiful! We enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the kids play in the fenced in area. The sounds of the creek flowing by was very relaxing. We were minutes feom everything. I will definitely be visiting again! Thank you to Dave and Kathy for going above and beyond for our family. This will probably be the last vacation we get to take with our grandpa so it was the best experience ever.

Owner's reply: Thank you Melinda! We are so glad you and the family had a great time on the creek and were able to create a wonderful memory with your grandpa. It is close to just about anything that everyone wants to see and do and to be right on Deep Creek for tubing and fishing.

Just wanted to know how everyone loved your home. The back porch was the special gathering place. Close to town, but in the country. Love the creek in the back.

Owner's reply: Thank you Mary, hope you come back soon! When we are there, we spend a lot of time on the back porch and the deck just enjoying the creek.

“Home away from home!”

Reviewed 8 May 2015

Chestnut Lodge was very well furnished. The setting along the river is beautiful! The kitchen is well stocked with cookware and there are plenty of blankets, towels and pillows provided. Large bedrooms, nice baths, large living room and a large dining area. We loved the screened in back porch. The Ramsey's were very easy to work with and everything went like clockwork. Thank you for a wonderful time and we will be back!

Owner's reply: Thanks Dawn. Looking forward to you coming back!
