  • Gorgeous View, comfy spacious clean mountain home, close to casino and skiing, great family fun!

    "True country getaway. Perfect getaway for a family from Florida like us. To see the mountains, play in the snow and go skiing at Cataloochee ski area. Parents enjoyed gambling at Harrahs Cherokee also. We will be back, thank you the house was amazing and the mountain views were breath-taking."

  • Amazing cabin, amazing view

    "My family loved our stay, no one wanted to leave. Cabin has everything you could need. We loved spending time on the porch watching the hummingbirds and the gorgeous view. I hope we can come back again."

  • Great family vacation

    "My family stayed here in late July 2014. We had a wonderful time! The kids LOVED the creek and they had their own island! Their imaginations ran wild!!! The adults had a blast too watching the kids from the porch and enjoying the scenery. The cabin is very roomy and we never felt crowded. Plenty of sleeping area. Got to enjoy a thunderstorm the first night which cooled off the days for the rest of our visit. As a Floridian, glad I brought warm clothes! Visited Biltmore Manson, hiked max patch bald (part of the AT) and drove the Tail of the Dragon. All of which, were about an hour from the cabin. Rest of the time we enjoyed the cabin. The stars at night are amazing! Want to plan another family vacation but we have more family that want to join after seeing our pics on this trip..."

  • Fantastic cabin for a quiet Smokey Mountain Getaway

    "My wife and I spent Christmas week in this cabin. After each day hiking in the Smokies, it was great to come back to the cabin, cook up a hot meal, and then curl up in front of the fire. For the same price as a cramped, noisy hotel room, you get a full cabin with comfy beds and sofas, a fully stocked kitchen, a fireplace, and a fantastic view of the mountains every morning. The owner is definitely interested in giving visitors the best experience possible, and the location is ideal for the Smokies, Asheville, and so much more. The drive up the mountain to the cabin is a bit steep, but our AWD Subaru handled it, no problem. If you don't have AWD or 4WD, drop the owner a line before you drive in to be sure your car can make it up the hill. Long story short, we're looking forward to choosing this cabin again when we come back -- and we hope it will be soon!"

Sylva Travel Tips

Sylva Vacation Rentals in the Heart of Nantahala National Forest

In Cherokee Indian, Nantahala means "land of the noonday sun." This name fits Nantahala National Forest well because the vegetation is so thick and lush in some areas that sun rays reach the forest floor only at noon. Take the opportunity to explore the wiles of nature surrounding you by staying in a vacation rental in Sylva. Even a simple nature walk can calm the mind and sooth the spirit.

Sylva Cabins are Just Ten Minutes from a Beautiful Park

A short ten minute drive down Skyland Drive and Fisher Creek Road takes you to Sylva's premiere park. The 1,100 acres of Pinnacle Park consists of moderate to difficult hiking trails that take you within arm's reach of streams and beautiful waterfalls. Its 5,008 foot elevation provides a breathtaking view of the Sylvan landscape.

Smoky Mountain Cabin Rentals are Ideal for the Whole Family

Busy city life can cause forgetfulness about the beauty that surrounds us, but exploring the wilderness around Sylva provides a great opportunity to teach your children about the world. Go on a hiking excursion and collect specimens to study back in your Sylva cabin. You can also take your children to Poteet Park for an entertaining afternoon of play and picnicking.

Enjoy Rest and Relaxation in a Sylva Cabin

Hotels and suites are cramped and limiting. The cabins in Sylva provide a spacious atmosphere, not only in accommodations but in the wilderness that surrounds you. Instead of spending your morning drinking coffee in the hotel lobby, enjoy it relaxing on the deck of your Sylva cabin, breathing in the fresh wilderness air and listening to birds sing. Following a day of activities, Sylva vacation rentals allow you to come back to a place that feels just like home.
