"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 stayed a weekend at this location in Early October. We rented it at the last minute and Bob the owner was quick and responsive to my questions. It was an easy check in and check out as well. The property is outstanding with a good sized creek running though it. The yard had a good sized grassy area along the creek for our kids to fish, play football, and throw the frisbee. There are a couple pools in the creek for swimming or floating in the summertime that hold fish. The fire-pit is ideally located and great for smores and evening fires in the crisp evenings. We visited Mt. Mitchell and spent some time Gem Mining at Emerald Village both attractions were about 45 minutes away. The cabin was cozy and had plenty of entertainment options. We had 4 adults and 2 kids and even had a friend with his 2 kids stop by for an evening and there was platy of space. On our way out we stopped at (local contact) Imma-Jeans house to purchase some Pumpkins, Fall Squash, and Dilly Beans."

"I would HIGHLY recommend this home to anyone hoping to have a great space to make some wonderful memories. The home is HUGE, beautiful and was perfect for our girls getaway. So much space, picturesque location, gorgeous views from the deck. The owner was there upon our arrival with fresh baked italian bread which we thoroughly enjoyed! Very easy to work with and was extremely accommodating. We would surely come back again for another beautiful getaway."

"The owner was responsive and very helpful. We had a great time with 36 family members. We had plenty of room for all the different age groups to meet in their own areas. The cabin was just as advertised only nicer than the pictures showed. My father was in a wheelchair and he like the ease of rolling on wooden floors.We all agreed we would like to come again during the winter to enjoy some snow. We had read something about the driveway, but many drove in and out numerous times with no problems. The kids had a great time with the outdoor play set, and we just about wore out the horse shoes. Our great dane "Moses" loved exploring. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us. We hope to be back soon."
