                              • This awesome cabin is located approx. one mile from the world famous Swag Inn. For foodies, the dining experience cannot be outdone! The downtown Waynesville area is artsy and quaint with shopping and fantastic restaurants. Maggie Valley is an old favorite - don't miss Joey's Pancake House before you head to the slopes at Cataloochee! The cabin is also located roughly five miles from a little known entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park. By parking at the gate and walking up the gravel road, hikers can see Ferguson Cabin and access many of the trails on the Cataloochee side of the park including the Cataloochee Divide Trail, Hemphill Bald, and other favorites....moreless

                                Our family of six joined some special friends for a long weekend here to relax and spend time together. They had a family of six as well, and the cabin allowed for plenty of room for all of us. We were first amazed with the family room, dining, and kitchen area. New appliances in the kitchen and an island/barstools are always a plus. Everything we needed for cooking meals. Comfy and very tasteful furniture for relaxing. A cup of cider on the back porch was so relaxing while I reclined on the teak couch. The rooms were spacious, along with comfy beds and plenty of linens and towels. My younger children enjoyed the loft area for watching movies and playing games, while we enjoyed visiting with our friends in the family room. Our teenagers were able to spread out in the basement for playing games and reading too. The cabin had plenty of books and games for the younger kids as well. The Smoky Mountains are a short drive from the cabin. It is easily accessible and an amazing hike! The leaves were beginning to change colors and the weather was gorgeous! We also took a drive into the artsy town of Waynesville. Lots of shops, cafes, art galleries to browse through as you stroll down the street. Don't miss out on the General Store's downstairs candy shop. Your children will love it! This is a beautiful area to vacation. Nestled in the Smoky Mountains, the cabin is secluded for privacy but close enough to stores for easy access. This cabin has a personal touch that many cabins do not have. It felt like a home away from home. The special details and care make this place a very comfortable and peaceful get away! We loved our time here!

                                Oh my goodness, this beautiful mountain home was simply perfection! My friends Sara and Jim live right up the way and recommended this cabin for what has become and annual gathering of high school friends. Only 3 of us stayed in the cabin, but we could have had lots more! Spacious, immaculately clean, and furnished with everything one would need for a weekend getaway. So much living area for eating, visiting, or getting away for some quiet time, this cabin really has it all. There is a big fireplace in the main living room along with a kitchen fully equipped with all modern appliances. Spacious bedrooms and an extra "living" area downstairs on the ground level plus a "reading"/sitting area upstairs give plenty of room for all to relax and enjoy the beautiful Carolina mountains. It's a short drive down to Waynesville where there are lots of shops, restaurants and friendly, friendly people. We took day outings to the Nantahala Outdoor Center for white water rafting and ziplining. It was heaven to return to the cabin and relax after enjoying the great outdoors. Highly recommend this cabin for any family or group of friends wanting to get away to the mountains for some well deserved rest and relaxation.

                                My family and I have been living overseas for three years and were in desperate need of a place to get away, relax and just be together. This cabin was everything we were looking for, and more! As soon as we hit the mountain I knew this was going to be the rejuvenating vacation I was looking for. The country barns flanking the road and the rocky stream were so picturesque I kept asking my husband to pull over! The cabin sits on the top of a mountain down a private road. I woke up each morning and took advantage of the two porches - one screened in on the back and one open on the front. It was the perfect place to sit and rock my newborn baby, or sip a cup of hot coffee and watch the sun rise or set. We actually shared the cabin with friends of ours - 12 people in all! It was so open and comfortable that we never felt too crowded. The furniture is tasteful, clean and cozy. The linens, blankets and towels were abundant and comfortable - perfect for wrapping around my legs on those chilly mornings on the front porch! We made use of the satellite television to watch some GA football on Saturday, and my kids enjoyed the fact that they could each watch a different movie on the two televisions. We also used the in house music system to play soft music throughout and on the porch for Sunday morning. It was also nice to have the internet access to help plan our trips into town. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the cooking utensils and cookware that we needed to make our meals. The town at the base of the mountain has two grocery stores that we used to stock up on food and snacks. We made good use of the grill to cook hamburgers one night too! It was nice to have a washer and dryer to wash all the baby's items in. We could tell that the owners of this cabin took a lot of pride in their home and did all they could to make sure it was well maintained and comfortable for visitors. They even went a far as providing games and puzzles, as well as movies and toys for the kids. The town of Waynesville is just about as perfect as it can get - art galleries, cafes, boutique shops, and even a general store - perfect for walking and browsing. We spent a day driving the blue ridge parkway as well as a day hiking in the smokey mountain national park - both easily accessible from this location. The pictures for this property are accurate but obviously seeing it in person is amazing! I would return in a second and recommend this cabin to anyone!

                                We were very happy staying at the cabin. It was so quiet and relaxing and peaceful. Close proximity to everything we wanted. The cabana really is close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and its beautiful waterfalls and trails (very refreshing during summer time). Close to the rapids in Tennessee, the kids really enjoyed this day. The cabin was very clean, had great linens and It felt like the comfort of home but much more luxurious. Everything you could possible think it’s provided for you; luxurious sheets and towels and toiletries, satellite TV, DVD movies, magazines, travel books. Our friends recommended this cabin and it was a marvelous recommendation, we had a great vacation with our friends and kids, we felt the cabin as our own home. We will back as soon as we can plan other escape to the mountains. Thank you Sara and Jim for let as know about this amazing place.

                                Friends of ours stayed here for a ski weekend and had a wonderful time! What a beautiful cabin, so lovingly taken care of! With 5 spacious bedrooms and 3 baths, and lots of living area, there was room for everyone to play games, eat, visit - - yet, also enough room to escape for some quiet time for reading, etc, if needed. Beautiful fireplace in the great room area. Fire pit outside, too! This location has easy access to the Cataloochee Ski Area . . . and in other season, you would enjoy its close proximity to the eastern end of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Waynesville's lovely Main Street with its shops and restaurants, Cherokee for the "tourist" thing, and it is only 30 minutes from exciting Asheville! This is a perfect location to book a "girl's trip", a family vacation or even a small reunion! Great hiking in the "neighborhood", too! It has everything you need!
