"We have stayed at the Stecoah Cabin 5 weeks in the last 7 years. Its comfortable, has everything you need and the view is great. There's nothing like sitting on the deck watching the clouds drift through the Stecoah valley after an evening rain as the sun sets. The best thing is the quiet and remoteness of Stecoah and the access to Fontana lake. Its a great get away. The owner couldn't be easier to deal with."

"This was our third time staying at The Rockaway Hideaway and we returned to find it just as wonderful as we remembered it. The cabin is really lovely. It is charming, well appointed and immaculate; a comfortable and inviting place to be. The owners have provided all the "fixings" you'll need to enjoy your stay, and nature has provided a magnificent back drop to complete the setting!
The cabin is conveniently located, so that any direction you head out in, you will find things to do. We ventured further west this time, through Smokey Mountain Park to Clingman's Dome and on to Gatlinburg,TN. We traveled southeast to Chimney Rock State Park and Lake Lure. Of course, nearby Waynesville was as charming as ever.
We tried some new restaurants and returned to some of our "old favorites" too.
All in all, we have come to realize that no matter what our vacation plans are for the year, they will include our "annual" trip to The Rockaway Hideaway. In fact, we have already started our list of things to do next year!"

"I was lucky enough to be able to get almost my all of my children together to take a vacation! The trip doubled as Spring break for us all and senior trip for my twins and their best freind. It took us an hour to get up wayah road and onto winding stairs because we kept stopping and climbing down to the cascades and small waterfalls. We were in awe of the area.
When we got to the cabin there were more oohs and ahhs. The pictures don't do it justice. You can't smell the fresh mountain air in the pictures, or the woodsy smell as you walk into the cabin. For lack of better wording, it was perfect. Beautiful wood floors and stairs. And that kitchen sink is to die for! My husband actually cooked breakfast and dinner (we had picnic lunches almost every day) and cleaned the kitchen the entire week!!
As I sat on the covered porch and listened to the nantahala river off in the distance I felt more relaxed than I have been blessed to feel in a very long time. We missed snow by only 1 day, there was snow on the ground and tops of the mountains when we got to town, being born and raised in central Florida, real snow is not something myself nor my children have experienced. Then the thunderstorms, wow. Just wow. I don't normally care for the rain but the sounds were amazing. The thunder booming and rolling throught the valleys isn't something we hear in Floridas flat lands. I sat outside for a long time just recording the thunderstorm sounds. We were fortunate enough it only rained at night or early morning.
We traveled down old river road and into the cute little town of Andrews. Then we took winding stairs all the way up and over and down down down. That was an awesome ride!! And we climbed up the creek at the bottom of winding stairs where I played in the cascades and creek. I felt like a kid again. Yes, the water was COLD but it was so worth it. And I would definitely recommend visiting wayah bald for more amazing views. And don't forget the bartram trail and Appalachian trail both nearby!!!
All of our vacations until now have been tropical and beach themed, this was such a wonderful change of pace and new scenery. We will most definitely return. We are officially in love."
