Guestbook comments from the owner


I have repeatedly attempted to post the following Review. At least on HomeAway, your last review is over a year old. DO YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO POST THIS?


MUCH MORE THAN WE EXPECTED! This is NOT the typical vacation rental. EXPECT TO BE VERY FAVORABLY IMPRESSED... First of all this home is on a totally private river front estate with the mountains all around. The home is very well appointed and decorated, with highest quality fixtures and appliances. The huge Living Room with high ceilings has four leather sofas providing plenty of room. There is a massive stone fireplace with remote control gas logs to take the "chill" off the mornings. The large "picture perfect" Dining Room has a second stone fireplace. All of this with views of the river and the mountainside beyond that. The Master Bedroom Suite is extraordinary. My grandsons didn't want to get out of the Hot Tub. We enjoyed the Fire Pit for Smores next to the river, and the extensive grounds for foot ball. So much to do in this area. Do not miss tubing or rafting down the river. As we were leaving, my grandson said, "I want to Stay! I don't want to leave!" We all agreed with him. DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS FINE VACATION HOME....

Better than fhe pictures!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised to find the house nicer than the pictures. The river was so beautiful, with quite a few rafters passing by. River was shallow enough for our two teenagers to enjoy swimming. We thoroughly enjoyed coffee out on the deck every morning. With table seating for 8 inside and out, everyone had plenty of room to dine. Kitchen is small, so I would recommend bringing some sort of storage containers for food and kitchen items. We had a great time...thanks for sharing your home with us.

Very nice home and beautiful property. Relaxing by the river.

  • 3 of 5

Home was clean and well maintained, and accommodating with modern conveniences while offering the beauty and tranquility of the river and mountains. My favorite time of day was sitting on the porch glider watching the river and listening to nature. Property is immaculately maintained and adds to the beautiful surroundings. The bank access to the river is slippery. King bed needs new pillows and bed linens that fit better as they kept pulling off the mattress. We barely had room to load our trash into the van on our departure. Having cleaning crew dispose of trash would be a nice addition to a nearly perfect experience.

Great Time, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a long weekend at this cabin on the river. Near enough to town while maintaining the solitude enjoyed in a mountain trip. We will likely stay here again.

Peaceful and easy

  • 4 of 5

This home was almost perfect. It was beautiful and clean. The master bathtub is jetted and soooo awesome. Upstairs bedroom has private balcony with direct river view. The pictures does not do it justice. There were 5 adults, 1 preteen, and 4 very energetic children with plenty of space for all. The cabin is very private with neighbors in the distance. The home sits on a large piece of property with rolling hills. We had breakfast every morning on the deck while enjoying the view of the river. We went tubing, kayaking, wading/swimming right out of the back yard and into the river. The river starts off about ankle deep and some parts of the river on the other side are over a child's head. I would suggest life jackets for the smaller children unless you are going to stay next to them (if they just play on first 15 ft it is about ankle to calf deep, but remember it is a river, so it is moving). Definitely need water shoes due to the abundance of natural rocks in the river. We drove one of our vehicles 10 minutes down to Bryson city rd, to a spot that locals call "red neck beach" and put our tubes in the river -- and we floated back to the cabin (it took about 2 hours to float back to cabin from "red neck beach." There was no real need to bring anything except for food and clothes. We enjoyed the fire pit by the river with smores and conversation every night. We bought some mosquito repellant but barely needed it. Wood was not provided, but local store and fruit stand sold fire wood bundles. There was such a peaceful feel to the home. I communicated with the owner a few times. She was very kind and quick to respond if I had a question, but allowed us to make her home feel like our home. I would have given this propery 5 stars, but my only complaint was that the hot tub was usable, but in need of draining, and cleaning. I would definitely recommend this cabin to friends, and we plan to come back again. Thank You Shirl for allowing us to stay at your home. We greatly enjoyed!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed our cabin. Hot tub is emptied and clean after every guest. Power had went off and hot tub was in error mode so it was not cycling properly. I walked you through it on phone to program it back to normal cycling and by the time I got to the cabin to make sure the problem had been fixed it was already clearing up, as you stated to me when I arrived. Very happy you and your family had a great time and apologize for those things that are beyond my control.

Beautiful property inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for not disappointing with this beautiful cabin and property you share! The house was amazing and fully furnished with everything we needed! My husband and I brought 5 teenagers and 2 of our fur babies along and were more than impressed. We visited several places while there and I would like to share them with the next guest. If you have teenagers look up Granite City, Secret falls, Dry falls, Bridal veil falls, Glen falls, Silver Run falls, Angel Falls, Stone wall Falls to name a few! Hiking was so much fun and playing in the creek behind the cabin but I must say being able to bring my girls (fur babies) was the most appreciated option you all have! Thank you again for a wonderful stay ❤
