Your cabin is the best! We can truly say we saw why the mountains of this grand area are called the Great Smokies. The view from the cabin is outstanding! Our week entailed boating on Fontana Lake, golfing, Native American drama - Unto These Hills in Cherokee, Great Smoky Mountain Railroad excursion and a fun day of whitewater rafting on the Nantahala-WHEW-WHAT A FUN WEEK. Karen and Mike B. , Bluffton, SC and Steve and Pat Wilburn, Winston-Salem, NC P.S. We did see shooting stars almost every evening. You have a great mountain home.

What a restful retreat for the soul! Such beauty and tranquility, steeped in history and charm. It was a privilege to stay in this amazingly beautiful cabin! No matter how many miles we ventured during the day, that relaxing hot tub awaited us each evening! Our stay here also put a whole new spin to the words dining out! So thrilled to spend what we hope is the first of many stays here.

Lovely cabin and view to celebrate our 52nd anniversary. Its great to see a place so well maintained. We give it an A. Highlights- view, hot tub, elk (all 3 days!), 11 hour sleeps! And being in the mountains where high temp was 86 (Bryson City) compared to 104 at home.

Thank you so much for sharing your home. The drive up was so exciting, I started to giggle and felt like a child again! So peaceful and beautiful! The view is magnificent! The early morning Jacuzzi and nightly fire pit was better than a five star hotel! Enjoy yourself.

The only person we ever communicated with was Kelli, and just a few times via email. She emailed us a list of possible cabins when the one we initially inquired about was not available. She was also very quick to respond to any emails I sent in. Other than that, we never had to encounter anyone else, which we really appreciated! Everything was just so well organized, there really was no need. It was perfect.

This cabin was even more amazing than we imagined! We couldnt ask for a better place to spend our 8 year wedding anniversary. The mountains are beautiful, especially with the rolling fog in the morning . We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and taking i the beautiful views! We were visited by hummingbirds and super fast little lizards. We cant wait to come back! Jesse and Rachel, - It had a lovely view and it was very enjoyable. Even though I only got to stay 2 days, it was wonderful. Till next time.

We came here for our 1st anniversary and we loved staying here. Its so peaceful and serene, and the views couldnt be better.

Everyone was wonderful to work with! When I called to see if I could check in early, they called said no problem and were so easy to work with! Then they called us the day we checked in just to make sure we got there ok and to make sure we were happy with the property. How awesome is that!?!? LOVE this place! We had the absolute best time and plan on coming back every year now! We could not have asked for a better anniversary trip with our own house and the view was outstanding and beyond belief. I couldn't believe we got something this spectacular for the money we paid. I was in shock and it was truly one of the best weekends I've ever had away from home. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. I cannot think of anything that we would have added to this special weekend. The cabin had everything we needed and wanted and went way beyond our expectations. We only stayed two nights. We went to Harrah's Casino (a few miles away) the first night and had a blast and then stayed in the second night to relax and grill out.
