Recent Smoky Mountains reviews

  • Simply wonderful

    "Our first time using vrbo was a hit! The location is perfect- just a small drive to stores and gas stations. The property itself is not secluded but it felt like it! (We almost let that stop us from booking-so glad we didn't- yes, the cabin is in a very small neighborhood, but we never really saw a lot of people and never felt encroached upon). We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the screened-in porch at night, listening to the creek that runs behind the cabin. The cabin is well-stocked --towels, bedding, pillows were plentiful! Very clean! When I was reading reviews, I didn't see any from people with small children. Our son is 2 and loved chestnut cabin! There was a basket of toys he found and immediately took to the screened-in porch to play. He's a pro at navigating stairs so we had no issues with him climbing to the loft. They are a little steep so, if you have concerns, you might want to bring a gate or rig a blockade. :) For parents of littles with allergies: the bedding is scented so if that's a problem for you, perhaps consider bringing your own (wasn't a problem for us, just being thorough!). Playing on the property surrounding the cabin was by far his most favorite part of the whole weekend. He threw rocks in the creek and had plenty of room to run off all that energy from sitting in the car! In fact, he woke us up early both mornings, shoes in hand, "ready" to go outside! If you are traving from the south and you have the time, take the scenic route: we got off I-26 at Hendersonville and went through the Pisgah National Forest and hopped on the Blue Ridge Parkway for a bit- absolutely breathtaking!! If you're looking for streamlined stainless steel, granite, marble, saunas and spas, chestnut cabin is (obviously) not for you. But if you're looking for a clean, safe place to relax, save some money by cooking (or grilling!) your own meals, to have some privacy because your child is loud and likes to scream (A LOT), then this place is for you! We will be back!"

  • Wonderful - We saw elk

    "We are ONLY rating this 4 instead of 5 stars based on the road condition getting to the cabin - really rough spots. WE LOVED the rooms, view, and most of all the elk we saw in the pasture below the top porch. At one time there were 11 elk - 1 old bull, 8 cows and 2 calves with spots, we all got some GREAT pictures and memories."

  • Great Family Reunion

    "Our family of 12, ages 7 to 80 had a wonderful time in this beautiful lake house. We rented a pontoon boat, the family used the paddle boat and canoe. The kitchen had all the amenities you needed. Everything was perfect. 3 levels to roam in the house. Outside was just beautiful and there was a fire pit, however, never had time to use it. There are plenty of waterfalls to visit, hiking available, shopping in Cashiers and Highlands. Just not enough time to do it. The owner is very friendly and helpful. We had a slight issue with the grill and their crew was out to fix it the next day. A wonderful rental. Would rent here again."

  • Bearadise, A Top of the Mountain Retreat.

    "My husband and I stayed here on our recent trip to NC, and couldn't have chosen a better place. The perfect porch for sitting with coffee in hand, and watching the NC sunrise, or an evening cocktail to watch the sunset. Very clean and comfortable, with all the perks. Would go back again and again. Thank You!!!"
