We had a wonderful time at this cabin!!!

  • 4 of 5

My family recently stayed here for a week and we had a wonderful time! The cabin was well kept and had everything we needed. We absolutely loved the fact that there was a creek on the property (we brought rain boots and my kids played in it every day) and the sauna was perfect for our FL blood to warm up in. The pool table added extra fun; although it’s in used condition, it worked well for us since I didn’t really have to worry about the kids scratching the felt or messing it up. There were a few issues, the tub wasn’t very clean, after the second night of finding gross stuff floating in it (like gunk from the jets) we stopped using it. We had a hard time getting the WiFi to work as well. Plus there was zero service at the cabin which made my husband being able to work very difficult, but it was kind of nice ;) overall we were really happy with everything and may venture back this summer :)

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was comfy. Perfect size for our family. Only issue was having enough hot water. But we adapted. Great area. Close to stores but far enough away to feel like vacation.

Wonderful Cabin in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing Cabin! My wife and and I stayed in Simple Pleasures on our honeymoon and we loved it. The cabin's immensities and comfort exceeded our expectations. The surrounding area is quiet, secluded, and the neighbors were very nice. I've stayed in several cabins before, and this one is by far the best. I look forward to staying again in the future. We couldn't be happier unless we had stayed longer. Thank you for the wonderful memories and being a part of our first adventure together as a married couple!

Surroundings were pretty however the cabin needs to be cleaned better, replace kitchen ware etc..

  • 2 of 5

Cabin was not very clean when we arrived, chipped cups, mugs and plates. Stained curtains and family room sectional. Bugs were out of control inside. No hot mits supplied and very few bath towels. The place needs some replacements due to wear and tear. 6 light bulbs burned when we arrived. Disappointed in the cabin for as much as we spent. Owner did refunded cleaning fee for our dissatisfaction.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking time to send a review. Based on our conversation we had on the 3rd day of your stay, I drove from Charlotte the very day you checked out and did NOT tell my cleaners so I could see for myself how it was being cleaned. Upon arrival the cleaning was to my satisfaction. There are 10 towels left out and there is a washing machine and dryer for guest use. The dishes, silverware and pots have all been replaced. I stayed for a couple of days and during that time only 1 roach was seen. As I stated before it is treated monthly. We take pride in our rental property as it is also our vacation get away! I have 5 star reviews the weeks leading up to your visit and I am sorry your experience was not all you hoped it to be. Cordially, Belynda (Owner)

Cute cabin relatively close to Helen, good value, responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

My daughters and I enjoyed our 3 night stay in this cabin. The cabin is nicely decorated with an authentic cabin feel. Although there were only 3 of us, there would have been plenty of room for a few more. The balcony with the hot tub felt very private with no view of the neighbors, just the woods and creek below. Even though it was not screened we are happy to report that we didn't have issues with mosquitoes on the balcony since it was obviously above ground level and we lit the citronella candle. The only thing I missed was some seating around the firepit, so if you plan to hang out at the firepit a lot, bring folding chairs. Also bring a lighter, as I forgot to bring one. The owner responded to me quickly when I texted her a couple of times. Overall the cabin was a great value for its size, style and amenities.
