- "Loved the views on the deck. Spent hours sitting on the wrap around deck." - Ann, Stayed in September 2014
- "This was our first family vacation in 6 years. We enjoyed the hot tub and relaxation of the cabin. It was set up very nicely. We loved Bryson City and going to all of the shops. We also went on the train to the NOC and back. We ended our trip with hiking to Clingmans Dome. It had an amazing view as the highest point in the Smoky Mountains." -- Janice, stayed July 2014

Everything was seamless. When we had an issue with the dishwasher, it was handled. The property is immaculately clean.
I don't think I ever left a comment when we stayed in the summer of 2012. I should have, and now that we are planning a family reunion, we can think of no better place to stay. This log cabin is so beautiful and roomy. The view of the lake is lovely, but the stars at night are breath-taking! In fact, nights in the hot tub or next to the outdoor wood burning fire place were what we enjoyed the most. There are plenty of things to do in the area, all within an hour drive, and we took advantage of them! The roads are paved and in great shape! We like that the property lies within a gated community too. This is the kind of place that my husband and have in mind for retirement, so we can't wait to come back with family and share this gem with them!

My husband and I came up for our honeymoon. We couldn't have picked a more romantic place. Despite the inclement weather the view was still AMAMZING. Hopefully we will return here to celebrate many anniversaries. The Marsh's Fountain Inn, SC

"Best views hands down." This cabin has the best view of the valley ahead hands down. My advice to all renters is to follow the rental company,s advise and use a 4X4 in the winter. I think the best time to go would be in the fall and if you go in the early winter, bring all you need to the cabin and stay in the cabin and surrounding mountain areas for the rest of your stay. Bryson city is near but not down the street, so keep that in mind. Dont try going down or up the mountain if the temps are below freezing point unless you have a 4X4, chained tires or are really good at frozen mountain roads. Summer or fall, this is the place to be!!! Last thing, the people. These are nice folks and they will be there to help you when you call.

Quiet Nice getaway. Would visit the house again. Next time we would stay longer than two nights. Probably need to cut some trees down along the driveway. Hill is really washing away.
