"Two couples spent the weekend at Hibernation Ridge - it was fabulous. The setting is beautiful, the cabin extremely well stocked, clean, decorated nicely and well built. Great layout too. The location is halfway between Murphy and Hayesville which was most convenient. Loved it - thanks for sharing your cabin. War Eagle!"

"Our family had a lovely time at this log cabin. The bedrooms on the master and upstairs are enormous and the beds were very comfortable. Lots of space. Nice touch having a high chair available for young ones, as we traveled with our one year old granddaughter. The mountain driveway was very steep and if snowed or iced up you would have a real challenge getting up or down. Kitchen needs a bit of updating. As we endured some rain on the trip the downstairs game room was a nice relief. If you are looking to get away from it all, this is the place for you. We had six adults and one child and were comfortable. Location is close to the ski area with shops, a grocery store, and beautiful catholic church within driving distance. Be careful if you drive a luxury or small car, as you are required to cart off all of your trash upon checkout and bring it to a trash center a few miles away. This could be problematic if you weren't expecting to do this. Also, unlike other places that we rent, you are not able to just run the dishwasher upon leaving...note on the fridge said that dishwasher must be emptied out before leaving. Overall, a delightful mountain getaway."

"We traveled with our four children (4,6,12,15) to Mountains and Meadows over Easter break. The cabin was cozy, comfortable and beautifully situated on a hillside. The children loved the setting, and there was enough privacy for the older 2 to escape their younger siblings every once in a while. It is very convenient to many waterfalls in Pisgah National Forest, our primary reason for visiting the area. The kids loved having their egg hunt in the beautiful meadow, and I appreciated the quick access to I-26, which made the drive back home (my least favorite part of any trip) fast and painless. Hope to come back in the Summer!"

"We recently had the pleasure of staying at Huckleberry’s Hideout in Bryson City. The cabin was extremely comfortable and had everything we needed to enjoy a much needed long weekend.
The well maintained cabin sits at the top of a long driveway and is very secluded. In the evenings we enjoyed rocking on the large porch, listening to the horses at the stables below and watching the glow of the fire in the fire pit. There is a nice grill for evening meals and a well equipped kitchen. On the second level there is a game room that we honestly did not use since we spent most of our free time on the porch but, would be a great asset to those traveling with children.
Downtown Bryson City is a short drive away and the Ingles Supermarket had everything we needed and even some organic staples. We found the people of Bryson very friendly and accommodating. The downtown area was very busy on the weekend but we felt like we had it to ourselves during the week. We enjoyed “The Filling Station” for a quick sandwich, “The Cork and Bean” for dinner (I would have gone twice if we had the time) and a pretty authentic Italian restaurant,“ Pasqualino’s” .
I cannot say enough about the location of this cabin. We felt close enough to everything and anything we wanted to do. The Nantahala Outdoor Center is a short drive with rapids easy enough for families or first timers. On the way to the NOC take a detour and check out Fontana Lake Dam and Tail of the Dragon (if your stomach is up to it…mine was not)! Also nearby are the Blue Ridge Parkway, Nantahala National Forest and Great Smokey Mountain Park with hours of hiking, driving and site seeing.
I will briefly address the driveway since so many seemed to mention it in previous reviews. We drove a Toyota Rav4 with front wheel drive. We were able to get half way up but no further. After two tries we returned to the bottom and went up in reverse /backwards. We had no problems doing this and came and went with ease. Those with all-wheel drive should not have any issues. There is a place to park at the bottom of the driveway but it is a bit of a hike up. Do not let this deter you from renting this great cabin in a perfect location!
Also want to extend a special thank you to the owners for allowing our furbaby to join us!"
