Everything we wanted it to be
"We had a wonderful stay at this cabin and our vacation was everything we wanted it to be. We did the 5 R's: rest, relax, recooperate, rejuvenate, reconnect AND had fun. There are 2 guest books full of suggestions from other visitors and 2 resource books (restaurants and things to do/see) that the owners put together which were very helpful. If you look through them the first day/night you are there, you will have all the info you need on wherever you want to go and whatever you want to do. You will probably end up with a few more fun things on your list as well! The Smokey Mtn Visitor's center is just up the road as well if you need more info.The waterfalls are spectacular and there are many hikes as well. There is fresh produce and a creamery just down the road. You have it all here. A great view, rocking chairs on a screened in porch (no bugs), the hot tub, a game room, board games, charcoal grill for the BEST dinners, peace and quiet. Because it is on top of a hill (that's why the awesome view) be prepared to put it in low gear to climb the hill. Everything in the cabin worked and we didn't have any issues. Beds were comfy, dishwasher, washer/dryer and just about every thing you need in the kitchen is provided. Wi-fii was great so we could check in and post pictures at the end of the day. Vickie (the property manager) was very helpful. We had a beautiful sunrise and sunset and the Autumn colors are just beginning. The deck is unique and you can tell this cabin has been a labor of love over the years."

"Just perfect. I was hoping to accomplish several things this year while on vacation. I wanted some peaceful time to relax by myself in nature, away from the noise of the city. I wanted to explore the mountains and hike waterfall trails. I also wanted to spend time with my girlfriend and her family, which has become a rare occasion. I found the perfect place to accomplish all of these things.
If you want peace and quiet, you got it. If you want a base camp to explore the beauty of western North Carolina, you got it. There is so much to do in the area...waterfalls, hiking trails, tubing and kayaking, fishing...or if you're in the mood, just relax and don't do anything! Make sure to try the boiled peanuts though, you won't have a hard time finding them...
I really can't say enough about Gary and Cherie as hosts. They are more than accommodating and just really beautiful people. You can tell that they really love their cabin, it was masterfully built and is meticulously kept. The first few nights my girlfriend and I had the cabin to ourselves, later on in the week we had 3 other adults join us...there was no problem as far as space or comfort. I really wish we had a few more days to enjoy!
Thanks Gary and Cherie (and Katie)!!!"

"The Quilted Cabin was a great place for my family of 5 to stay for a 5 days. My kids loved the loft area. The cabin was very clean and had everything we might need, from towels to measuring cups. The front porch was awesome to sit on anytime of the day. My kids had fun swimming at the clubhouse. It was secluded, but close enough to run to the store in case you need something. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you to the owners for sharing this little gem with us. The owners were very nice and easy to reach."

"We had a great time at this beautiful home! The kids loved playing in the yard, hiking, swimming/tubing in the river, and cookouts on the deck. What a great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. We will definitely plan another vacation at this beautiful home."
