What makes this cabin unique

Foliage, birds, sunsets and night sky made me fall in love with this place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Charlie; everything was great . The house was beautiful. Unfortunately, the weather was not the best until we were ready to leave. Certainly no fault of the surroundings . We would have enjoyed being able to sit out on the deck more and use the hammock. The house was certainly five star. The price was comparable for the area. I would certainly recommend to anyone looking for a nice quiet place in the Lake Toxaway area.

Best wishes,

Fantastic/Relaxing Cabin & Views

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at "Gone Fishin" right after the area had 2 1/2 weeks of steady rain. We had a week of steady sunshine and low humidity. Couldn't have asked for better weather.

The cabin was exactly as described and better. Upon arrival, it was immaculately clean and supplied with everything we needed. As we ate out most of the week, we only had one dinner on the back deck. We found the deck to be a nice place to have a casual family dinner. We also found the deck to be the best place to relax and enjoy the evening sunsets and a cold beer or glass of wine. Take the time, shortly after sunset, to enjoy the stars and the flying squirrels that raid the bird feeder. Took us about 45min to realize what we were seeing. Around 11pm, a big fat raccoon visits the deck too.

The living room furniture is new and comfortable, although we didn't spend much time inside. As my wife put it, the master bed was like sleeping on a cloud. Our daughter enjoyed having her bed room and bath room down stairs, as it gave her her own space, away from us "old" people. :)

The owner of the cabin, Charlie, checked on us and made sure we got to the cabin easily and checked in without issues. He was fun to talk to and was a wealth of information on the area and its offerings. He has tons of books in the cabin on local fishing, hiking and most everything else you might want to do. Charlie sent us to dinner at a local restaurant, the "Black Mule". If you have the time, have dinner there. It's close by and the food is outstanding. Thanks for sending us there Charlie.

Charlie, his cabin and the area provided my family and I the vacation we were looking for and needed. This is the first time we have used any rental service, for a vacation and wouldn’t hesitate to use VRBO again. And, we’d definitely come back for another stay at “Gone Fishin”.

Thanks Charlie

Owner's Response: The restaurant is the "Blind Mule" 1.5 miles from cabin. I strive very hard to make all my guest feel right at home and focus on their vacation. VRBO really works and you get a complete house for the price of a hotel room or less.

This house was really clean and fun, and the owner was incredibly responsive. If you're considering renting this house, have no fear - it will be awesome. My wife and I brought our 4 kids - 16, 14, 10, 7. We spent a couple night here as our "base" while we visited some of the waterfalls in the area and just...unplugged. This house is pretty quiet, yet not far away from Brevard. We did see a white squirrel and flying squirrels on the property, from the deck. The house has all you need, the beds are cozy, there is wifi and tv if you need it. Great stay, great memories!

Perfect Mountain Respite

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home for a week of hiking and scenic respite for three women friends. Charlie's home seems to be the authentic mountain cabin but everything has been updated and restored for maximum comfort. We especially loved the big decks with sunset view, the three bedrooms all with comfortable mattresses, the powerful internet and good water pressure, the air-conditioned climate control, and of course the charming mountain decor. Charlie the owner was welcoming, responsive, reasonable, and just good to do business with. We highly recommend. Do not miss hiking in Panthertown.

Beautiful, peaceful cabin.

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay. Especially liked the covered deck, we had most of our meals outside. Brevard is a nice little town, enjoyed the shops and had a nice dinner in town. Really enjoyed the hiking and sliding rock. Will be back. Did not see a white squirrel, but my wife saw one, will be on the lookout next trip.
