Andrews cabin description
Make your reservation now to experience log home living, set high atop a mountain and watch as the sun sets over Tennessee! If you like spectacular long range views of sky and mountains, this log cabin high up in the Snowbird Mountains is for you! Nighttime stargazing, especially in the HOT TUB is an amazing experience at our log cabin with unobstructed views in all directions!
Scout's Lookout, a real log cabin with beautiful heart of pine floors throughout, is a non-smoking cabin with one thing in mind-- relaxation and comfort. This log cabin has ALL the amenities you need for a relaxing vacation ... eat your meals in the dining area with long range views on 3 sides or out on the porch. There are two bedrooms on the main level -- the master with a queen bed, private bath and cable tv; and the guest bedroom has a full size bed.
Upstairs the large loft has twins and a cozy reading area with loveseat. Board games, puzzles and movies will help to entertain the young -- or young at heart! Just open the windows, turn on the ceiling fans and the cool mountain air will lull you right to sleep! The living room has a wood burning fireplace for those cool mountain nights, complete with TV, VCR and DVD.
Swing or rock on the porch and admire the amazing views as birds and clouds float by... OR use it as your home base while you ride the Nantahala River Gorge, boat or swim on Lake Nantahala, antique in Franklin and N. Georgia or explore the beautiful mountains and waterfalls of Western North Carolina, especially the Great Smokey Mountains National Park! The grocery store is a 10 minute drive down the mountain into the town of Andrews.
Don't forget -- the vineyards of N. Georgia make a great day trip! Nearby places of interest include Nantahala Outdoor Center (tubing, rafting, horseback, picnic), Bryson City (golf, Great Smoky Mountain Railroad, Appalachian Trail), Cherokee (casinos), Fontana Lake, Cherohola Skyway (42 mile scenic drive). Scout's Lookout is a great location as you explore all that Western North Carolina has to offer.
There just aren't many views that will match the ones from here... it's closer to heaven than you think! Spend a week... or spend a month.... couples, families or seniors -- anyone looking to recharge ..... it just doesn't get any better than high up at Scout's Lookout! Telephone and internet access is also available!

We came up for the Thanksgiving holidays. The house was clean and well maintained. The kitchen is well stocked and everything that you need is there. We loved the hot tub and spent a lot of time out on the deck "chilling out"!. Our only regret is that we had to leave. We would definitely stay here again. Oh, we did see Lady Bugs, but they weren't as bad as the previous post indicated. If you are in the South, you are gonna see Lady Bugs during this time of the year. We didn't see it as a problem. I wouldn't let that discourage you from staying here.

Me and my girlfriend come to the North Georgia or Western,NC areas twice a year to hike, ride motorcycles,sight see, and just relax in the beautiful environment. We typically stay at a different place every time we come. We had a nice stay and Scouts Lookout. The location is nice in that it is central to both Western / Central N.C. and North Georgia. Andrews is a bit of a sleepier town than Murphy. Which we liked. Per the previous poster we too had some ladybugs but they were not all that bad and were just on one side of the cabin. Not in the bedrooms or restrooms. We did some reading up on them and they are just confused and trying to hibernate. We swept them or vacuumed them each day and put the ones we could back outside to get on with there life. I have stayed in places with worse ladybugs. Both up this way and back home in Mississippi. No biggie. We did make a few suggestions to the management company / owner ( as we do with most places we stay. We only hope to help the mgt. company and owner be a little better ) as I would want the same so that people stayed happy. We would be more than happy to stay at Scouts Lookout again as we were treated nicely by Freedom Realty throughout the rental process.

A MUST STAY WE COULDN'T BE HAPPIER!!
We stayed at this beautiful getaway cabin and were so happy that we had chosen it. The views are stupendous, beautiful covered porch to sit on, hot tub also on the porch. The cabin had every amenity that could be needed, we didn't have to purchase anything. The cabin was immaculate and Dottie of Freedom Realty Inc. was so nice. She called us when we arrived to make sure everything was to our liking and asked if there anything else we needed. If so, she would get it immediately for us. There was also a beautiful welcome basket waiting for us! This has never happened at any other cabin we stayed at. Our stay was so relaxing and this cabin and we will definitely be back for another visit. Thankfully, the cabin is pet friendly and the deck is gated so we knew our pet was safe. We thank Dottie for her help and for making this a most enjoyable vacation for us!

Infested with Bugs
Infested with Bugs
I checked into this rental on 10/21/12 to celebrate my 30th Wedding Anniversay and found the one side of the home swarming with ladybugs. The hot tub was not able to be used due to the amount of ladybugs. INSIDE there were hundreds of bugs dead on the floor and thousands on the windows and dropping by the second. The kitchen counters were covered and so was the table. I swept up the bugs because I was told I was over reacting and Lady Bugs are part of North Carolina and I should not have come if I didn't like them, There were hundreds more dead on the floor and the furniture after I swept, The managing company was absolute terrible. No rectification was made. However, a very nice gentlemen did come out to spray and clean the inside of the house, which was so kind and helpful. No alternative living situation was given nor discount offered. NOTHING was done except for Dottie, the real estate manager, took her phone off of the hook to stop my calls. Dottie told me I was to not come to North Carolina if I could not deal with lady bugs, I would not recommend this rental company at all. I feel sorry for the owners of this house as they are the ones that loose on rental income. The house is pretty but the falling lady bugs inside while typing this review is disgusting. Find and alternate company to rent from. I have rented other houses on VRBO.COM within the 10 years and have never been treated so poorly. The fact that Dottie states she is the only one in the rental office and she cashed my husbands final payment, then took an additional final payment from his credit card shows that she has no business handling other peoples homes, money and least not customer service. Please feel free to contact me and I would be happy to send you pictures,

Manager response: As most travelers know, certain times of the year can bring unwanted guests. This is ladybug season and they seem to be attracted to log homes more than not. When our guests arrived and found alot of them inside the cabin, they called the property management company on Sunday afternoon, who in turn had their maint. person come out there within the hour, vacuum the ladybugs up and sprayed outside the windows. They seemed to disappear. We also emailed the guests that evening and apologized for the problem it created for them,offered a $100. credit off their next stay at any of our rentals or a free night stay,as well as crediting their cleaning fee, even though we do not have control over nature or the weather! Renters were there the night before these guests and were not bothered by the ladybugs. In fact, most will scoop them up and release them back outside as they do have a purpose here on earth, just like we do! If you have any questions, please feel free to call us 7 days a week, we are here to serve you. Sincerely, Freedom Realty
