Great location and comfortable place
"We loved it. Perfect for bringing our pet. Felt very home like and comfortable. Great for day trips in the surrounding areas. Highlands, Bryson City for rafting, Helen for an excellent pretzel @ the Bavarian Inn. Host was very good in communications with our questions."

"We vacationed here for a week and wished it was 2 weeks. We enjoyed the house and the property. We really liked sleeping to the sound of rushing water every night. Very comfortable for even 2 small groups of people. There is a nice deck in the back, overlooking the mini-waterfalls and creek. A large deck in the front overlooks the creek. Then a lower large outdoor area, that is a covered deck with a table. That spot has 2 shallow wading areas that you can walk right into. The driveway to the house is a great little morning and evening walk, some open field and the rest is woods. Inside, there are 2 "living" areas. One that includes a TV. The eating area was large so it could accommodate a group of people. An adult said the futons were comfortable to sleep on. I think families with kids would really like it, if they enjoy the outdoors. I would definitely come back to this house to stay."

"“The Long and Winding Road” Although a song by the Beatles it is a perfect description of your great mountain hideaway. Floridians, beach people, go to the mountains for a change of scenery. We don't drive on mountain roads and they always seem longer and more winding. Every inch worth the drive. To sit and look towards the Appalachian Trail and wonder who might be ready to start their long adventure. To sit and listen to the quiet (it's a great non-sound). To watch the winter birds search for a feeding as the sun begins to warm the mornings after sub-freezing nights. To watch the slowing emptying feeder as if it were an hour glass. A weekend, an Anniversary celebration, a Valentine get-away, all provided by your Smokey Mountain retreat.
Thanks for the extra treat of firewood, though we brought some of our own. Thanks for the clean and restful environment. Most of all, thanks for the great directions. They were spot-on.
Dinner at Cafe REL, Lucio's, and in Cherokee at Brio Tuscan Grill filled all the needs for fine dining. Even offering the use of your Ingles card was an extra thoughtful touch.
We will be back.

"We are long time visitors to this are. We had a great time and stayed an extra night to boot. Diane was easy to work with especially with our pet. Had a few minor issues but Diane said they would be taken care of and we would recommend this property to anyone with a family. The hornets under the front porch were not an issue as long as you left them alone, this is nature you know. We would like to come back in the future and miss the Cafe REL and the cool nights already. JG"
