Beautiful house, lots of room!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a couple of days in this home in June 2018. Lots of room, plenty of sleeping areas and fully stocked kitchen. The only draw back was the owners live upstairs and sometimes you can hear foot steps and other noise above your head. That is the only reason we did not give it a full 5 star rating. Other than that, loved it!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind words. Unfortunately your stay coincided with our vacation exit which meant tons of heightened activity, packing bags and an early morning airport run. Sorry if the extra noise kept you from fully enjoying your stay, but it is something we will be more conscious of in the future. Thanks for the feedback!

Great Family Thanksgiving Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Crystal nest for 4 nights and it was so relaxing and beautiful. The kitchen was fully stocked allowing us to prepare our Thanksgiving dinner. Mike even bought a pan for us so we could roast our turkey. It comfortably slept 6. We had 4 adults and 2 kids. The views were fantastic and our personal deck with a fire pit made relaxing with some coffee in the fresh air a delight. Not to mention the s’mores. The surrounding small towns were perfect for outings and the Polar Express train ride for the kids in Bryson City was a blast. The hardest thing was sharing one bathroom but we survived 😂. The ground floor cabin was beautifully decorated, cozy, clean and warm and inviting. Plus it was stocked with games. Mike was very friendly and attentive to anything we needed. We had a wonderful family getaway. Thanks!
