"As much as I don't want others to know about this fantastic home, it would be wrong of me to not share such a gem. Kudos to owners David and Donna for the wonderful job they have done on this home; they truly put great thought and detail into every aspect of this home to make it the perfect getaway! The home was spotless when we arrived, something you unfortunately do not find much of these days, the kitchen had plenty of dishes, bowls, cups, cooking utensils, the beds were comfortable and not worn down, and the double sinks in the bathroom is perfection! There was so much to do in the area; great fly fishing, nature trails, FRESH air, beautiful scenery, everything here is perfect! I cannot wait to go back!"

"Beautiful cottage with all the comforts of home. Well stocked kitchen, plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate a big group or family, Fantastic game room/man cave (including a Hot Tub) so the party can stay inside on a rainy day, but the decks and view will make you want be outside all of the time. Everything is labeled and easy to maneuver around - All you'll need to do is pack your suitcase and stop at the grocery store and you'll be all set! Owners are easy to deal with and always happy to provide some advice or guidance. Highly recommend!"

"My husband and I stayed for a 4 day weekend and really enjoyed ourselves.
We cooked every meal while there, and ate them all on the deck. The deck has a lovely view, outdoor speakers, and plenty of space. We had amazing weather so we were lucky enough to spend the majority of our time outside.
Basically everything we needed in the kitchen was provided. The kitchen is small and a bit cramped while cooking, but 1 person can fit in there to cook. That's all we needed! Plus there's a dishwasher so that is very helpful! We used the grill on the deck to make a couple meals and that is quite handy. There were very few nearby choices for dining out, but we expected that and brought groceries. The trip to Marion is long due to winding roads (not mileage), but its not too bad if needed or wanted (we went for delicious ice cream!).
Access to the Parkway is quite close. We hiked at Craggie Gardens, Crabtree Falls, and Linville Falls, all off the Parkway. All were not too far for day trips and all are awesome. We also went to Roaring Fork Falls near the cabin and its lovely and secluded.
The neighbors ARE close. I assume this is often not an issue, as you can't really SEE them...but during our stay the neighbors were partying constantly and incredibly loud. This was a bit annoying, but not the chalet's fault in any way. It was Memorial weekend so I assume they were there to party (and possibly a rental also).
The Master bed is divine - so comfortable. We did not use the other room, but we love that we could invite friends here to join us in the future if we want. It would be fine for 4 people.
We brought our 2 dogs and they had a great time. They got to roam around outside, sleep in the sun on the deck, and go hiking with us. They were happy pups! Mainly they just came inside to sleep after exhausting days.
We did use the provided firepit and that is another great feature - we enjoyed that quite a bit.
We had absolutely no AT&T service (nowhere nearby), but the available wifi helped us be able to watch Netflix a couple times. Since we came here to get away, being a bit disconnected was lovely.
I would say that if you're looking for a small, rustic place to relax and be near hiking, this is the place for you. We'll definitely be back."

"We absolutely loved the cabin! Very remote which was exactly what we were looking for. The cabin had everything you could need and a great hike to the mica mine with one of the best outlooks Iv'e ever seen! Its a challenging hike but totally worth it."
