About Mike Wooster

I am a recovering Floridian, spending my childhood in South Florida and early adult years in Pensacola and Jacksonville.. Following 8 years as a Navy pilot, work related relocation has taken us to Pennsylvania, Ohio, (back to Florida), North Carolina, Mississippi and finally Oklahoma.

We lived in and loved this home for two years and have been blessed to be able to share with others.

Mike Wooster purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Mike Wooster chose Smoky Mountains

We love the location of this home. Although atop a mountain, we have wonderful views and are only a short drive to town.

Rustic roost relaxing and refreshing

  • 4 of 5

Overall a great stay. If majestic mountain views are your goal then this may not be the property for you. That being said it is a great cabin on a nice property. The views are nice, but not looking off the edge. There is a nice little farm below the property and mountains across the valley. Very peaceful location and convenient to attractions with a short drive. The cabin itself is very nice and relaxing. We would stay here again without hesitation.

Enjoyed our stay overall.

  • 3 of 5

Nice, clean cabin. Futons were not comfortable at all, so keep that in mind. We tried to drop the trash off at the assigned area located off the property on Sunday when we left, but it was not open. Had to hijack a local dumpster to get rid of our trash. The main concern was the fireplace. It needs immediate attention. The burners need serviced. They filled the house with fumes and we turned it off and opened the windows until it was aired out. It's a cozy place, it just needs some TLC.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to give a thoughtful review. I was unaware of the condition of the futon mattresses and have already ordered replacements. Gas log service has also been scheduled.

Great get-away

  • 4 of 5

My family really enjoyed our weekend get-away to the Rustic Roost. The cabin is well-appointed, and provides just about all you'd need for the weekend. The host and property management company are prompt, friendly, and easy to work with. We did have a little trouble finding the location, as the house itself isn't marked with a house number, and at the end of our stay, we had some trouble with trash collection/drop-off. Otherwise, the location was a perfect jump-off for our trips up to the BRP, Dillsboro, and Asheville.

Very happy with house and much enjoyed the area

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and well equipped in a delightful and welcoming area. Very spacious reception and dining area. Very nice terrace with good garden furniture, looking up into the Smokies. Good access to much to be seen. We enjoyed staying here and exploring this part of USA.

Great View and Location

  • 4 of 5

As advertised, this property is perfectly situated on a hilltop at the edge of Waynesville with a view of the mountains to the north and west and a pastoral scene below. The cabin is perfect for a group of four and will hold more. The photos of the cabin reflect the property's appearance. Kitchen had all the right utensils and the cabin had all the amenities we require. We loved the easy access to Waynesville and beyond. The property manager was easy to work with and very helpful. Driveway was blacktopped and landscape nicely managed to permit views and maintain a garden like feel around the cabin. We loved the Panacea coffee house, the Chocolate Bear and the shops downtown. Loved shopping the new Ingles for groceries and a Starbucks coffee. I would recommend this cabin. Side trips to Cherokee, Cataloochee, Brevard and Asheville were all easy and enjoyable to make from this location.

Womderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

A Rustic Roost was even better than the listing claimed. The photos do not do it justice. The hiuse was so comfortable and well equipped we wanted for nothing. All we needed was food and our own personal items. We used the house as a base for day trips in the area...Hendersonville, Ashville. And the Blue Ridge Parkway. But Waynesville was the perfect little town. We loved the Friday night Art Walk, the Wednesday and Saturday Farmers Markets, and the mountain music and dancing in the street. However, the best time each day was sitting on the screened porch, rocking and contemplating the view....with our coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. We look forward to the chance to come again, and stay at A Rustic Roost.
