We had the perfect family holiday staying at this amazing cabin. We hiked in the park, walked along Deep Creek. But my favorite time was forgetting about home/work and hanging out in and around the cabin with the kids!! We have truly relaxed and are going back to South Florida feeling re energized! We will definitely be back in the fall to see the changing leaves. Thanks to the great Staff at the Great Smokys Cabin Rental.

Everything was great. They called while we were getting close to the property to make sure we had found it ok and then called back a short time later to confirm we had made it and everything was to our satisfaction. We loved the privacy and the view, the amenities were great. This was our third time using GSCR and it will not be our last! Another great trip to the mountain roads of NC. We love it and always have a great time.

Couldn't be happier with the comfort, space and location. Beautiful home had everything we needed and more that we didn't think we would need. Definitely a vacation without intending it to be. GSCR was very accommodating and understanding in our situation. We were evacuated for the Hurricane, we loved the location and the view.

My wife and I had the best vacation EVER thanks to this cabin. We've rented houses dozens of times, and taken numerous vacations. But this one was the best. The beauty of the cabins was far superior. However, after interacting with the staff and them treating me like a king..well...there's no other option for future rentals. We loved our accommodations so much we wanted to stay another day. I called after hours on a saturday. Phone was answered on the first ring. Thankfully no one had booked it, but exceptions were made, and we were able to stay one more night...thus making the whole trip for us MUCH more enjoyable. We came for REST!! We enjoyed morning coffee on the deck under that beautiful gazebo. Mid-day naps in the silence of the woods. Evening Margaritas in the hot tub overlooking spectacular views of the Smokys Your staff was there when I called. Every time, and answered all of my questions.

The cabin more than met my expectations. For someone wanting a true log cabin experience, this cabin is the place. The craftmanship was exceptional, the rustic furnishings and interesting wall decorations added to the experience, yet it had every modern convenience anyone would need. The view was incredible, the privacy from neighboring cabins was exceptional, and the hot tub had stronger jets and more angles to hit your muscles than any hot tub I have ever been in before. I would encourage anyone to take advantage of nearby water activities. My wife and I had never been white water tubing or white water rafting till doing so at Deep Creek and the NOC center. We thoroughly enjoyed our 45th wedding anniversary at Shooting Star Ridge.
