Great vacation cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently visited this cabin for our anniversary. We could not have been more pleased with our trip. The cabin is absolutely beautiful, inside and outside. The furnishings were extremely nice.There are numerous things to do at the cabin such as playing pool, relaxing in the jacuzzi, going out in the canoe, roasting marshmallows in the firepit, or just relaxing with a good book on the deck. This is by no means a typical cabin that you can rent. Our favorite place to be at the cabin was out on deck overlooking the lake and mountains. We were able to see 4 deer by the lake one morning, and then 3 deer in the driveway later that evening. The scenery is amazing! There is also lots to do in the area, such as whitewater rafting, horseback riding, and hiking. We can't wait to plan our next trip back. We have stayed in numerous cabins in the "Great Smokies", but none compare to this cabin! Serenity Cove is the perfect name for this place!

Away from it all. Sorta.

  • 3 of 5

We found the accommodations & amenities first-rate, every bit as good as other reviewers have written. Whether kayaking, swimming or shooting pool, there's plenty to do.

But being 45 to 75 minutes from a grocery story doesn't mean you're getting away from it all. Our first day the folks next door spent the late afternoon laughing loudly, and their partying continued until 2am. My guests in the upstairs master bedroom didn't sleep well that night.

Our second day there was less loud laughter and more loud talking, which continued until well past midnight. My guests in the upstairs master bedroom didn't sleep well that night.

Our third day we called Greg and asked him what could be done. Greg said he would send a text to the property owner about the noise. That evening we enjoyed some quiet, until about midnight, when someone at the property next door began playing on a drumset. My guests in the upstairs master bedroom didn't find this conducive to sleep, so they wound up calling the Cherokee County Sheriff. A sheriff's deputy came out and talked to my guests, then went over to the property next door.

We left the following morning. I'm back home now, and sleeping great at night. And with a grocery story just 5 minutes away, I don't feel the need so much to "get away from it all".

Owner's Response: I am truly sorry your stay was not perfect. You must have taken a wrong turn to the grocery store because it is no longer than a 25 minute drive, we usually make it to the grocery store in Andrews in 20 minutes. I talked with the homeowner next door and she said the renters were celebrating a 40th birthday party. They did mention if anyone had walked over to let them know they were too noisy they definitely would have been courteous enough to keep the noise down. As always a quick call to me will normally take care of any issues before they get worse.

This was our second time staying at Serenity Cove. Beautiful property in gorgeous setting.

One significant improvement from our last stay was the dock! Really nice now. We hung out on it a lot. Overall, our vacation was really a much needed retreat. Lots of family QT. Will definitely stay here again. Only recommendation is to upgrade the coffee maker, LOL.

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Clean and comfortable for Thanksgiving break.

The home has plenty of room and "extras." We loved roasting s'mores and hot dogs at the fire pit under the night sky. The lake was quiet...and fun to explore. We hope to be back!
