  • Perfect.

    "First of all, this home is amazing. It's truly welcoming and has the best mountain view. We stayed in the summer and birds were everywhere! There is so much exploring to do outside of this area, and when you want to just hang out at the house everything is there for you. Pam is wonderful, a woman after my own heart and she gave us recommendations on everything we could think of doing. We got engaged while on this vacation, and I could not of picked a better spot! We can't wait to come as a married couple! Thank you Pam!"

  • Fabulous getaway, perfect location

    "We found this gem on vrbo.com and it lived up to every expectation and more! 2 families of 4 fit comfortably in this home with room to spare. The walk from the house to the lake is nicely graded and very comfortable to walk. The boat is fantastic! We had a great time taking it out and tooling around the lake. The road leading up to the home is very reasonable and easy to navigate (some roads in the area are extremely graded and this one, thankfully, was not.) Owners were great to work with. We love the area and loved the house!"

  • Family Christmas on the Lake... Beyond our dreams!

    "From the first moment of contact, Mike (the owner) was a joy to deal with. This was a family reunion Christmas for us and one of the children has special needs. Mike and his family did everything possible to accommodate his needs & make our Christmas one to remember forever... including having the house decorated for the holidays. Mike was always easily reached by cell phone or email to answer our dozens of questions. I can't say thank you enough. Our impressions? 1. If you are coming in from Franklin, the roads are very twisty. You will get used to it fairly quickly. It's a flatter & straighter drive in from Andrews. The driveway IS extremely steep & a bit overwhelming at first, but we were backing up & down it with ease within a short time. 2. The house was a PERFECT fit. Loved the outdoor pavilion with fireplace & Hot tub overlooking lake. Kids fished off the dock daily. Gas fireplace in Master BR was a fantastic bonus (we spent many days curled up watching movies). Master bath is a dream. After a hot tub soak, the kids loved getting warm & dry in the upstairs hall sauna. It was equally relaxing for the adults. The kids LOVED bunking all together in the bunk room, as well as playing pool on the nearby billiards table. The decorations throughout are darling & rustic & we found something almost daily to "ooh & aah" over. The kitchen was WELL stocked with almost anything we needed (hand mixer, wine opener, can opener, cookie sheets, cheese grater, big pots, etc.) If I had to find anything to nit pick about (which is hard to do), we would have liked it if the second queen BR had a TV & wished the fireplace in the living room was gas rather than electric (stone fireplace in the kitchen was AMAZING. You do have to order wood). Otherwise EVERYTHING was at or over expectation. 3. Nearby tips: Wayah Bald is a 15 minute drive & a must see with incredible panoramic views. Two waterfalls are located on Wayah Road (1 on your left just past Junalaska RD, a great fishing spot) & a much taller one a few miles down on right. Also, you can hike nearby on the Rufus Morgan Trail to a third waterfall that is 60' high (a ten minute drive & a 1 mile hike). Also at least 3 nearby geocaches. 4. STOCK UP, stores are not close. Andrews (25 minute drive) is smaller than Franklin but MUCH easier to get to & while quite small, has a supermarket & drugstore. Be SURE to stop there at the quaint "Corner Coffee Co." for an OUTSTANDING cup of coffee. *WE WILL DEFINITELY RETURN!"

  • Misty Laurel

    "Our recent stay at Misty Laurel was wonderful. The owner went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed for our surprise getaway. We traveled around the beautiful area and left with some amazing photographs. The only thing I would change would be the length of our stay as I could have spent an entire month in this cabin. I can't wait to go back and I would highly recommend it to everyone."
