Beautiful Sunali Retreat
"The Sunali Cabin was everything and more in a home away from home. Just enough rustic features to call a cabin but also having amenities of home that made your stay very comfortable - very well decorated and stocked for your every need.
The view from back deck voided the question of paying more for a cabin verse a room - even in a 5 star hotel. Each morning sunrise was spectacular whether you were fogged in, clouds were lower than cabin in valley or it was clear for 25 miles. The view offered a buffet for your senses over a cup of morning Java.
Not having Wi-Fi in my opinion was a plus while staying here because I am always “plugged in” 24/7 for work and I think it takes away from the rustic beauty/serenity I was actually looking for in a mountain cabin – Kids will not agree with this, but I think it’s good for them to unplug and engage with nature when the opportunity exist.
With NOC (whitewater rafting,hiking,zip lining) 15 minutes’ drive time and shopping 35 minutes away , the cabin is located in an area that works for everyone’s interest.
Truly a great place to stay in every respect"

"The cabin was beautiful inside & out! The landscaping is well maintained & the pups loved running & playing in the fenced back yard; the porch is perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee & watching the sun rise, & the views could not be more beautiful. The inside of the cabin is spacious, clean, & decorated beautifully. The cabin is well stocked with the basics to make your stay even more enjoyable. We loved watching the hummingbirds buzzing around the feeders while we were cooking breakfast each morning. Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with us! It was exactly the reset we needed from "the real world" and we hope to return again soon!"

"There were few things on my mind, before I planned to book a cabin. Serene, away from all hustle bustle, nice and peaceful nature and most importantly a real dark sky (we are amateur astronomers).
Jimbo's Farm not only fulfilled all of my above expectations, but it exceeded our expectations. The cabin being a classic one, had those doors and frames that remind of the old times. Therefore, it felt as if we were back to our Granny's home (nostalgia at it's best). The huge front yard with a pond filled with trouts give you own little forest like experience, allowing you to take in the clean air, chirping of birds and the gentle sound of water stream all at once. My wife who was apprehensive of the cabin, was mightliy impressed the moment she arrived and enjoyed the stay thoroughly. The best part was, me and brother were praying for a clear dark sky during those three days. And Bingo, it was clear as it can be. Jimbo's farm being away from the city or major town lights, the sky was excellent for star gazing. We were able to see the milky way galaxy with naked eyes. Through our binoculars, we were able to view other deep sky objects such as Andromeda galaxy etc. Night photography was amazing. Over all, it is worth every penny to visit Jimbo's Farm. James and Carolyn were extremely courteous to answer all of our questions and made our stay even better.
This is a definite re-book place."

"I was looking for a secluded and relaxing place to stay for our vacation and this cabin had it all. The master bedroom was awesome!! Loved the deck with the hot tub. I would sit out there in the morning, drink my coffee and enjoy the peacefulness. The owners provided everything we would need and you can tell they take great pride in their property. There is so much to do in the area and the cabin was in a great location. My husband had a great time riding on the Tail of the Dragon. We to the Wheels through Time motorcycle museum in Maggie Valley, Fontana Dam, drove on the Cherohala Skyway, went up to Clingman's Dome in the Smokey Mountains, and went to Deep Creek outside of Bryson City. We had one of the best vacations we have ever had and I would recommend this cabin to anyone wanting to vacation in the area."
