  • Smokies Retreat

    "This house is both clean and comfortable. However, what sets it apart is the fantastic setting. If you're looking for a mountain retreat, this is it. Scenery is great and private location enables you to enjoy it without interruption. Enjoy!"

  • Clean and comfortable - and goats!

    "We had a relaxing stay at Bill and Vivian's cottage. The home was clean and comfortable as could be (and nicely decorated, too!). We especially enjoyed our breakfasts in the screened porch in the back, looking out to the mountains, and delighting in the goats and cows grazing nearby, and sitting on the front porch at night with mountains in the distance there, too. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that you can hear the cars and trucks coming up nearby Alexander road. I guess the sound echoes in the valley. Still, it was a peaceful and comfortable retreat for us as we explored Asheville and the surrounding areas."

  • Beautiful Mountain Retreat

    "We stayed at this house while the fall leaf colors and the amazing local waterfalls were at a their peaks. This is a perfect location to enjoy the outdoors in a quiet wooded mountain setting. We fully endorse what many others have written about the outstanding design, décor and livability of the house and property. It is conveniently located close to half way between Highlands and Cashiers. The excellent hiking trails at Whiteside Mountain are only a short drive away, and if you are lucky you may be able to see the "Bear Shadow" made by the mountain from an overlook just down the highway. The owner was very helpful to us, providing thorough information on household equipment and on restaurants and things to do in the area. She also promptly addressed any questions that came up before and during our visit. We are very happy to have stayed here during what we consider the best season of the year. However, a stay at any time of year would be great given all that the house and area have to offer."

    "Our family has just returned from the best vacation we have ever had....and all eleven of us, ages 4 through 70, agree! We had never been to Lake Toxaway, so we had no idea what to expect. We had seen the pictures of the house and it looked beautiful....but we held our breath as we opened the front door. All I can say is, it was WONDERFUL....down to the smallest detail. It was spotlessly clean, decorated beautifully....the lovely pictures on the website don't even do it justice! The kitchen was fully equipped with two refrigerators; there was plenty of space for our family and SO MUCH available for every person to enjoy. One of the loveliest features was the beautiful, comfortable porch (with a gas grill) overlooking the lake which we enjoyed from early morning till late at night. And the wonderful dock was filled with activity all day long...the sliding board into the lake and equipment for different water activities...a fire pit. Seeing and hearing unending laughter, good conversation, all of our family enjoying being together for meals around the table.... it was a vacation we will never forget and hope to repeat next year. And a huge thank you to Jennifer, the owner, for being so accessible and immediately responsive. Our experience has been a joy from beginning to end!"

Smoky Mountains Travel Tips

Settle into Smoky Mountain Cabins

If you are looking for the time of your life, you should seriously consider booking Smoky Mountain cabins for your next family vacation. A Smoky Mountains vacation, in North Carolina, is just perfect for the whole family. Special destinations like Asheville, Brevard, and Lake Nantahala make for lovely vacations any time of year.

Smoky Mountain Cabins near the National Park

When you plan your own Smoky Mountains vacation, do not leave a day at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park off your list! The park is not only a beautiful place with a substantial size, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site as well as an International Biosphere Reserve. Almost 10 million people visit the park each year to bask in the splendor of the flora and fauna as well as to take advantage of the hiking trails. One of the trails is the Appalachian Trail, so definitely do not leave your hiking boots back at your Smoky Mountain cabins.

Smoky Mountains Rentals with Spectacular Views

If you are planning your Smoky Mountains vacation around taking in some spectacular views, this is the right destination for you. Hike up to Clingmans Dome (6,643 feet), which is the highest point in the Smoky Mountains Park; you'll be able to see for miles and miles. Or, if you prefer Morton’s Overlook, it is en route to Clingmans Dome. Morton’s is ideal for a sunset viewing. But do not book Smoky Mountains rentals without visiting Laurel Falls, which has paved trails if you have trouble hiking or a stroller. The hike concludes at the gorgeous waterfalls.

Get Gems on a Smoky Mountains Vacation

The Smoky Mountain area is known for its gem mining, and not just by professionals! Just a short distance from almost all Smoky Mountains cabins are a variety of gem mines. Some are not open to the public while others are. Many people staying in Smoky Mountains rentals throughout the year try their hand at the gem mining parks and come home with the likes of native rubies, sapphires, and even garnets!
