Relaxing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed this cabin!

We all enjoyed late night puzzles, games (board games, pool and video games) and movies and our son LOVED the ducks on the staircase, and the birdhouses around the yard. He wanted to move into the cabin permanently lol. None of us wanted to leave!

If we didn't have our son with us, we would have tried the Winery while we were there. It is a short drive from the cabin. The scenery was just beautiful and the entire area gave us plenty to do while in town.

We appreciate Jody letting us stay in her home for the weekend. It was quite lovely and we will visit again the next time we are in Western, NC!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for all the kind words and compliments on the cabin Jamie. So glad to know that all of you including your son enjoyed everything the home has to offer. We've gotten alot of that from children that they just want to stay and ask when they can go back to "their" cabin. For these reasons is why we continue to rent our cabin so that families like yours can come back again and again to make more memories. Look forward to having the "Brewer" family return soon.

We'll be back

  • 5 of 5

We came to this property on a very cold weekend, so we spent much of the time sitting around the wood stove enjoying each other's company. We especially loved the fenced dog run, which isn't something you often find in a property like this. The kitchen and bathrooms were well equipped, and Jody was a fantastic host. We'll definitely be back here again.

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is tranquil and beautiful. It is very well furnished too I was finding new things on the wall up to the day I left that I found very interesting. It was very centrally located for Hiawassee and surrounding activities that we did in North Carolina. Lots of fun and would highly recommend and stay again.

Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The space and amenities at Fisherman's Retreat totally blew me out of the water. The open living room/ kitchen was terrific for a large family and the downstairs playroom was perfect for the occasional rainy patch. The river was just deep enough for my grandkids to play in and do a little fishing. I just can't say enough- loved the house, as well as the area. Grocery stores are within 20 minutes, as are lakes, hiking paths, quaint little towns.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. It was a pleasure accommodating you and your family, always great to hear from our guests that they appreciated the home itself from the youngest of the family on up. As you mentioned there is plenty of activites and sight seeing to be had within a short distance from the home. Look forward to having you and your family return some time soon. We all need to take a break from the our busy lives, "unplug" and truly enjoy each other and Fishermans Retreat is always a perfect place to do just that. Take care.
