“private get away”

Reviewed 29 Oct 2016

most beautiful views!! awesome hot tub and very clean for a rental. plenty of towels and only 15 min from Bryson City. Perfect in every way. Only wish sign with house number was more visible (maybe paint white) so to find easier. Otherwise a dream vacation.

“She Said "yes"”

Reviewed 29 Mar 2016

The place was very nice (with the exception of the gravel drive that nearly had me on the edge of my seat) We both enjoyed the amenities the cabin had to offer. The view was absolutely breathe taking, so the cabin truly earns it's name!!!

“Florida Family”

Reviewed 20 Oct 2015

My husband and I spent two nights at the cabin with our two children, ages 7 and 4. We had a great time! The cabin had everything we needed from a fire pit for roasting marshmallows, to a heater for chilly nights. I would recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a nice, conveniently located cabin near Bryson City. We also loved taking a ride on the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad and lunch at The Filling Station Deli, as well as coffee from Cork & Bean.

“A Relaxing Thanksgiving”

Reviewed 28 Nov 2012

Really enjoyed our stay! The cabin was perfect for a Thanksgiving get-a-way. We used the hot tub every day and enjoyed playing pool in the loft area. The kitchen was also great; loved the gas stove. The cabin offered a beautiful view; it was of the highest on the mountain. But, that did present challenges getting up the final drive way. Both SUVs had to make several attempts to get up the final drive; we kept spinning out on the soft spots. Unfortunately, this caused us to not leave the cabin as often as planned for fear of not being able to get back up the drive way. Might want to consider adding some additional gravel and/or grating. Other than that, the only other constructive feedback would be to invest in some additional rocking chairs for the porch. There were only 3 rocking chairs, but we had 4 people. Thanks for a great vacation!

“What a view!”

Reviewed 8 May 2012

Enjoyed the seclusion and the luxury. The views of the lake and surrounding mountains were fabulous. It was very close to rafting and hiking in the Smokey Mountains. Loved it.

“Wonderful Choice with Privacy and Great Views!”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2011

We stayed in this beautiful cabin which was at the top of a mountain. We had complete privacy and after we arrived we knew we had made the perfect choice after we passed right beside a few cabins on the way up. It has the most wonderful views and the full moon just made it so much better. The cabin was very nice and had all the amenities we needed. The hot tub was great in the evenings and it was very cozy. It was a very relaxing place to stay. We will definitely be visiting it again and again. It was close to Bryson City and close enough to visit Nantahala during the day for activities. Thanks for having an awesome, affordable place to stay. Looking forward to the next visit.

“In Awe!”

Reviewed 1 May 2011

Breathtaking views from the decks. No problem getting out of bed in the morning to see the spectacular views from the master bedroom. Beautiful cabin in secluded area of the Smokey Mountains but still close to Bryson City. We totally loved the time there.

“Gorgeous view from modern cabin!”

Reviewed 1 Feb 2011

The view from the cabin was absolutely stunning - we couldn't seem to stay off the deck, day or night! You could see every star in the sky!! The kitchen was very well equipped, and we used the gas grill and fireplaces each night and enjoyed them very much. Everything we needed was there! The cabin would have gotten 5 stars except that the master bathtub drain would not close, so we couldn't use the jacuzzi tub - the outdoor hot tub worked great, though. Also, would have loved a stereo or iPod dock. Otherwise, great for a vacation getaway - we had a romantic trip for two this time, but would love to come back with another couple next time!

“Awesome View!!!”

Reviewed 30 Nov 2009

This cabin is a little hard to get to at night. When we first arrived it was dark. One of the street signs was missing, just before the one-lane bridge. Wow! We woke up to breathe taking views. I could just sit on the porch all day and look at the beautiful scenary. The cabin has all the amenities, hot tub on porch, jacuzzi tub in master, pool table in loft, and nice kitchen. Our family really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to others. It is about a 15 minute drive into Bryson city. It is located high on the mountain with no loud noises and traffic...just you and nature. Great place to just get away from the hussle and bussle of our busy lives.

“Great Cabin”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2009

What a wonderful vacation in a quiet mountain setting. Views of the Great Smokey mountains go on forever. Top of the line log home. Enjoyed the hot tub and pool table - both had views! Last few feet of drive up are a bit treacherous but my 4 cyl car made it without a problem. Would go back in a heartbeat!

The view is exquisite! Sad to be leaving today. We have vacationed in the mountains for over twenty years. We have never stayed in the Bryson City area. We really enjoyed the area. Mostly, we loved the cabin and the exquisite view. We had a sensational moon shining through the windows one evening. Another evening, we watched lightning and the distant clouds and then the approaching storm. Thanks for being a pet friendly cabin.
