      Surprise Birthday trip for two of our grandkids.

      House was very well thought out. Stocked with most everything needed out side of guest personal items (clothes, bathroom tolitrties, food. The house was very clean and comfortable. The outside deck was super and the fire pit gave us some nice memories. It was fun cooking steaks and having Smores for desert. It is just a short distance to downtown Dillsboro and Sylva. Love the small town with so much to offer.

      5/5 Excellent

        Tiny Cabin is Perfect Cabin!

        Looks exactly like the photos. Plenty of room for 2-4 but too tiny for more even though it sleeps 6. Nice water pressure in shower. The outdoor Garbage cans are several hundred feet from Cabin. Refrigerator was not clean but everything else was very nice. GREAT LOCATION! Close to restaurants, outfitters, shopping, ICE CREAM, casino and Natahala National Forest. You can’t beat the river view. Lot of trailers in the community which was unexpected but everyone was friendly. We will go back.

        5/5 Excellent


          This property is centrally located making it easy to get to things. It is an absolute relaxation property!

          5/5 Excellent

            Everything was as advertised.

            Area was very nice, well maintained and quiet. Everyone respected each others privacy. House was fantastic. It truly is new. Very well appointed with capacity to sleep up to 6 -8 people, although it would be tight quarters. Perfect for 2 -4 people. Sylva and Dillsboro are just minutes away for dining and shopping, Bryson City and Cherokee within 30 minutes or so. Will definitely be visiting again.

            5/5 Excellent
