"This home exceeded our expectations in every way. You are hidden on the mountain, yet 5-10 min from numerous activities. This amazing home is equipped with most anything that you would need to feel right at home. My first choice for any upcoming mountain vacation!"Guest: cindy s.

"The first thing about this place was the ease of working with the owners. Rob was very quick to respond to any questions we had and gave some nice suggestions of restaurants to visit in Waynesville. There are a lot of wonderful things about this place. The location is quiet, and although it can be a little tricky getting there, you feel at home and at peace when you are there. The home itself is extremely well built. You can see they paid very close attention to details and used great materials in building it. The downstairs is very nice with the pool table, wet bar, huge fireplace, TV and full bath. It was about 5 degrees cooler down there, which was nice during the warm days outside. Having a garage is nice if you are there during the winter. As you go upstairs to the main level it is also very nice. The outside deck is very large and can accomodate a very large party, although our party was just the two of us. The living area is also huge and open. The acoustics in there is really nice so when you are playing music or have the TV on you can hear it all over the house. The kitchen was really well stocked with pots, pans, utensils, and pretty much whatever you might need, although we were glad we brought our own Keurig. The master suite was spacious and well-appointed. It was easy to see how two small kids could sleep on the window seat because it was very wide. The room had a nice sitting area to read a book or work a crossword puzzle. And the windows that allowed you to look out into the valley was a really nice design detail. There were a few negatives but nothing that would keep us from giving it 5 stars or from coming back. If you are a sports fan and expect to watch ESPN during the fall football season, you won't get it here. The TV in the living room was relatively small for the large space it was in. If you are in the kitchen preparing a meal and want to see the screen it's not easy to see. The TV downstairs is also small and an older model, but again, your not here just to watch TV. The only other thing was the gas grill was left unclean by the previous renter. Not the owners fault. Looked like someone grilled some fish and left the skin on the grill. Couldn't find a wire brush to clean it off. Overall, this was one of the nicest places we've stayed. It's new, it's modern, it's well equipped, and it's the kind of place you can enjoy by being away from it all or you can venture 20 minutes into town and do a lot of things."Guest: Jeff H.

"We drove through the windy roads of backcountry to find this gem in the middle of the mountains. It's a drive but one that's worth it because the cabin in secluded from the main roads. The pictures are precise in describing the surroundings and natural beauty. We couldn't get enough of the views from the deck. Speaking of which, there is a 2 level deck. The cabin is spacious, large enough for 6 adults or 4 adults and 4-6 kids. More importantly it is very well equipped. We were sad we didn't have a chance to use the basement but the next time we come, we will spend maximum time in the cabin with all its amenities. The hosts were kind and courteous in email correspondence; we received a prompt response from them. I would rent from them again."Guest: Kika Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: November 14, 2014View listing
"We rented the Deer Ridge for a dream family Holiday vacation and were not disappointed! I'ts at the top of the mountain and the views from the wrap around porch are incredible. The kitchen is very well equipped! Plus, there is a grill deck right off of the kitchen which worked well for Sam's delish Brisket and BBQ ribs the next day! So much room to move around and with 8 adults and 3 very small children we had plenty of room to spread out. Sandi and Clad were great to work with and so helpful with all of my pre vacation questions. But I needn't have worried - they have everything! The children and grandchildren loved riding the Polar Express and we all enjoyed a couple of landmark restaurants: The Cork and Bean and Jimmie Macs. The week passed all too quickly but who knows; we may be back. If I had any negatives, they would be few. There is no TV on the main floor where everyone hangs out (my sons brought theirs - had to watch Christmas movies, you know) out and for bathing babies, there is only one tub except for the huge one in the master. (Hard to reach babies over the high tub.) Also, a must visit is to Dillsboro. What a cute little town and only 20 minutes away. Only 2 or 3 blocks in its entirety, but a stopping point for the Smokey Mountains Railroad, 3 very nice restaurants, great little shops and even a wine store, complete with wine tasting. Bryson City, we'll be back!"Guest: Debby Date of Stay: December 2013 Review Submitted: January 8, 2014View listing
