"We rented this cabin to attend open house at nearby Western Carolina University. The cabin was a short 20 minutes from campus. After a busy day of touring the campus, we were able to relax on the porches and/or sit on a stump in the middle of the island in the river below. The view, complete with sound effects, was amazing and was enjoyed by the whole family. My husband, who is usually ready to leave before we ever reach our destination, didn't want to leave! The owner was quick to respond to inquiries and the manager with very helpful as well. Our family looks forward to renting this cabin again over the next 4 years."

"We stayed in this house the last week-end in October and loved it. It is a beautiful home that is perfect for a family get together. Lots of room for everyone. We loved the porch with the fireplace. Beautiful views. It is a short drive into The Highlands or Cashiers. Thanks for sharing your home and hope it is available 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."

"We had a great time. We enjoyed the area by going to Helen, checking out some wineries and also whitewater rafting. We wish we had a couple extra days to just do nothing and sit at the cabin and enjoy that more. Very nice place and great location right on the creek."
