Beautiful charming cabin in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

I don't know where to start about Knotty Knoll. This was our first time using VRBO and after looking over and over at houses we decided on Knotty Knoll. The booking site was a bit confusing and accidentally booked twice but, the owners were so understanding and gracious offering to take care of it for us. We arrived hoping our choice was a good one. We found the large porch welcoming with rockers, swing and a view that was unbelievable. When we opened the front door I could do nothing but, fall in love at first sight. The house was so perfect.....charming beyond my wildest dreams. We felt like we were back in time but with modern conveniences. The attention to decorating detail was beautiful. No chachikis, bears, moose et., just charming antiques, log hewn furniture, country items....not too much....just enough. There was a comfy couch and magnificent stone fireplace. The kitchen had everything we could want to make our stay pleasant. There were 2 beautiful bedrooms....one queen....one king. We stayed in the king and slept wonderfully on the new pillow top mattress. Loved the hall bath with the claw foot tub and oak dresser vanity. The towels were soft and fluffy and again charming decor. The loft has 2 beds and a bath with a shower. The cabin is immaculate. There is a game room, off the garage, along with new washer and dryer. A hot tub was just below the back porch. There is also a great fire pit with comfy chairs in the yard. We did not use any of these features but, nice to have for a family. We spent most of every day....even in the rain...just relaxing, admiring the view and listening to the river below. This trip was to celebrate my 70th birthday and it was more than I could have ever dreamed of. Bryson City was just 5 min away, Cherokee about 15 with the entrance to the park nearby. Gatlinburg was maybe an hours ride through the park. Quite enjoyable. It was so very hard to leave this beautiful place and without a doubt we will be back and bring family with us. Thank you so much Barbie and Greg for your hospitality. You are special people.

This cabin is the perfect location to relax and unwind, as well as to explore the Smokey Mountains

  • 5 of 5

This cabin exceeded our expectations - all I really want is a comfortable bed, a decent shower and a sharp knife in the kitchen ! And this beautiful cabin gives so much more. The mountains provided us with much entertainment including a tremendous thunder storm but even in a power outage there were flashlights to hand so this didn't cause us a problem at all. A well equipped kitchen allowed for some lovely meals as well as many quality hours spent around the firepit, in the hot tub as well as inside. The many birds and animals kept us entertained.

Barbie was always quick to respond to any messages with her friendly manner.

If we ever come back this way we will be back to stay again.

cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a wonderful stay here for a Spring getaway. We have 3 children btwn the ages of 8 and 15...they had a great time, too. The cabin is very close to town and the grocery store, plus many great outdoor activities (hiking, ziplining, etc) which is why we stayed here. The cabin was very clean and comfortable and the communication from the owners was outstanding both ahead of our stay and in following up. We would love to return sometime!

Knotty Knoll exceeded all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cabin for a portion of our Spring Break. My three boys enjoyed our trip immensely. We were there Wednesday through Sunday. They loved the pool/game room and the fire pit. Our whole family enjoyed the hot tub... perfect water and temperature. They really enjoyed all of the NASCAR memorabilia in the game room and since their father was a fan of Earnhardt..all of that memorabilia was really cool! We roasted hot dogs and had smores. Our family enjoyed hiking to waterfalls nearby in the National Forest.. what a fun day! The boys also loved going on a guided fishing trip with Fontana Tours on the River. Captain Kyle was wonderful and since it was chilly that day, he even included a boat to fish from when the water got to chilly. They caught 32 trout.!!!! the boys.. ages 11, 14, 15 loved fishing...the litle two had never really been fishing before. The Tuskeegee River meetinng place for fishing was a short 15 minute drive from the cabin. The boys also loved cruising around town and especially liked the Filling Station Deli and the Snack Shack. We also watched some NCAA basketball in town at a sports restaurant. The boys also visited the Bryson City Rec Center and played basketball there. The cabin was a short 5 minute drive to Bryson City. The town was lovely. Plenty of amenities in the kitchen to prepare meals...plenty of room around the table to eat..nice comfy couches with great views to play games and watch more basketball. The cabin was secluded and wonderful! Plenty of room both outside and inside to enjoy this quiet secluded setting. We loved the views!!!!! Barbie, the owner, was wonderful to rent from. She called to make sure everything was good and to see if we needed anything shortly after arrival. I can't think of anything that we needed. It was such a wonderful cabin!!!! We definitely plan on visiting Knotty Knoll Log Cabin again! We have rented cabins near Chimney Rock and Blowing Rock...for Thanksgiving, Fall Break and Spring Break in the past....and we think we've found our favorite.... Knotty Knoll. So glad I found this place. We will return.
