Cozy Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay here. It was exactly what we needed and we were super happy with the choice. The cabin was exactly as pictured with all the amenities you need except wifi. Everything was clean and well kept and communication was very quick and responsive.

The cabin is tucked away on a quiet backroad with minimal activity but within a short drive to Bryson City and right down the road from Nantahala Outdoor Center and a restaurant with makes for quick access to fun and food.

Cell service is extremely limited in the area, however if you go to the bottom of the hill where the outdoor center is, you can make calls and use wifi. The lack of service actually turned out to be a welcomed reprieve for me and made it feel like an actual getaway. Also water is well water, so you will have the smell that is associated with that, so buy drinking water.

If you're looking for a quiet, cozy getaway and can handle rural living, consider this a great option. Lori was extremely pleasant to work with and very accommodating.

Magical little mountain house! A beautiful retreat and getaway.

  • 5 of 5

So thoughtfully appointed! We truly appreciated the pride in ownership - very comfortable getaway for our family (with a teenager!) - loved the decorations, cozy character and quality of the home - positively IMMACULATE. The location of the cabin is awesome - just up the hill from the Nantahala Outdoor Center, which had tons of fun activities for us to do, from zip lining to rafting and hiking. Our family LOVED the cabin so much that we chose to stay close by much of our visit and just enjoy it's ambience - we cooked in (our teen loved the kitchen and even made us a couple of meals!). The outdoor deck is lovely and shaded. The screened-in porch - super cozy - made me wish I could stay there for weeks and just read good books. One of the most magical things was seeing STARS and LIGHTNING BUGS! Coming from very urban lifestyle, we didn't realize how much we have missed seeing such calming beauty. We will definitely be back and could see ourselves enjoying staying here for weeks, not just days! :)

Cozy, Cool, and Quaint

  • 5 of 5

This rustic, yet modern, little cabin was perfect for our group. Nestled in a legit hollow just a mile from the hustle and bustle of the NOC adventure center, this cabin provided a quick retreat from the busy Rafting, Mtn. Biking, and Zip Line enthusiasts with plenty of amenities that make you feel right at home. Comfortable furniture, individual flat screen televisions in each room, and individual A/C mini-split units in each bedroom allow for a personalized climate without impacting other guests. Smart AND energy efficient! Each room also had attached bathrooms fully stocked with quality linens and supplies. Comfortable and roomy beds with plenty of pillows and quality sheets and blankets. It's the little things that really add up with this cabin.

Lovely back hollow road and yard was wonderful for walking around and relaxing after a day of work, adventure, or perfect for a quiet day in WNC. Lori was easy to connect with and flexible with our reservations. I will certainly be keeping this little gem noted for future trips back to the Nantahala and Bryson City area!
