  • 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."

    "What a great place!!!!!! If those aren't the first words out of you mouth when you open the door you are in the wrong cabin. Perfect, great location, serene, peaceful not to mention beautiful inside and out. Take a break form your hectic life and sit back and enjoy the surroundings. Great food, shopping and exploring are only part of the experience."

  • And a Dream it is!

    "There is no doubt that this cabin is so much more than 2 people can possibly enjoy in 3 nights, but enjoy it to the fullest is what we did! The ammenities, the hot tub on deck and in the master bedroom was so relaxing, leaving the cabin for anything was totally not necessary! The kitchen is well stocked from appliances to cookware, utensils, cleaning supplies and even little extra's in the cabinets (seasonings in case you forgot any). There is so much to say about Carolina Dreaming....there is no doubt that we will be coming back and maybe the next time with a couple of friends! Thank you so much Linda! I couldn't have chosen a more fantastic cabin in Nantahala region! The Gorge is beautiful too!!"

  • Very nice, Perfect getaway!

    "Very nice cabin. It was spotless clean upon arrival. Very well stocked and remote location that allowed us to bring our dogs to participate in the fun! Owner was also very helpful to us. Roads/driveway can be a little intimidating but made it without any problems. Saluda is a great little town to visit with really nice restaurants also!"
