  • Perfect Memorial Day weekend

    "absolutely recommend and would return to this perfect escape. My husband and I came with our 2.5 year old and enjoyed Asheville to its fullest. We highly recommend the cottage, and Grant is a pleasure to work with. We were able to check in early on Thursday. Saw TONS of bears all weekend, went to many breweries (our favorite was Burial). Cooked many meals at the cottage, thoroughly enjoyed everything about it and we will be back!"

  • Most relaxing vacation yet

    "This was definitely an adventure. Our family of four (two ten year old girls) spent a week enjoying the serenity of being surrounded by the Smoky Mountains (in front of you) and the Nantahala National Forest behind us. Steve gave us a brief intro on how to use the technology in the house (it took maybe 30 minutes, and you do need to pay attention). After that, we were truly off the grid. The water was amazing. It was easy to see 10-15 down into the lake and fun to watch our daughters neon suits almost glow. Most of our days were spent tubing behind the pontoon boat (not fast, but fun) and casting a line in the water. We boated to different locations around the park and spent time hiking in the Park, rarely seeing other boaters. We hit the rope swing down the river on a daily basis and enjoyed flinging ourselves out into the water. We caught numerous fish from the dock and ate them right away. We didn't get to fish out on the lake with Bobby, but we enjoyed his visits and his fishing advice from the house. And, the light pole he helped us erect for night fishing was a huge pastime. The TV was available, but rarely on. Like others, we ate every meal at the house -- which was a treat for us. Do NOT rely on the marinas for food or groceries. You do need to plan ahead with your supplies, but the kitchen was well-stocked. We loved eating dinner on the decking next to the house and watching the hummingbirds and scouting for bald eagles. It helped us that we had someone join us mid-week who brought additional food so we didn't have to leave the house for groceries. We rarely ran the electricity during the day and found the breeze to be pleasant enough to not need the AC provided, or the heat (we were starting to get chilly one night, which was a blessing). The bedding and towels provided were good quality and there were plenty of them. You are showering in lake water but it was clean and Steve provided plenty of drinking water and replenished extra ice throughout the week. The cell phone connection, as indicated, worked best in the lake but also worked at certain sweet spots on the deck and at night. We are strong swimmers. I wouldn't recommend this house for anyone who isn't very comfortable on the water. The house was stable and you barely felt it rocking in the gentle waves (which were mostly from the very few boats that went by). You do need to plan ahead to bring what you need and appreciate what you have. It was a true respite from reality."

  • Treehouse Fun

    "The Treehouse Chalet is cozy, clean and welcoming. I prepared a full breakfast one morning and found all the necessary tools to do that. Plenty of wood was available for the wood burning stove, a good thing as it got quite cold. There were several great restaurants within a short drive and we had wonderful meals in Clyde and Waynesville. Be aware, if winter weather is predicted, you will need a 4WD vehicle to get into the driveway, the snow plow stops about 50 feet shy of it."

  • Wonderful time!

    "Spent the long weekend with family and friends. Had a great time exploring the outdoors, enjoying nature and the weather. Secluded enough to experience the country living, and enjoy the campfire and music in peace. Just what we were looking for!"
