Guestbook comments from the owner

We just got home :( we didn't want to leave. I washed all of the linens and everything we used. It is a bit cooler at night and in the morning but it was pretty hot during the day, it rained every afternoon which cooled things off a good bit. The stars were amazing as always, so breath taking! We saw Saturn the first night, it's always so unreal to see the rings!!

We love your house so much Pam. Thank you so much for another great trip. You are so blessed to have that little piece of paradise. We were talking last night at dinner about our New Zealand trip back in January and all the wonderful things we saw and experienced over there, it was a trip of a lifetime but still nothing can come close to having the effect on us that our home on Mountain View Drive does, the place is truly magical. We love everything about it and leave a bigger piece of us there each time we leave. The nature, the birds, the peace, the stars, the sunsets and sunrises all hold such a special place in our hearts.

What a great place run by a great owner!

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin? Well, before we even arrived we had detailed information from Pam about all the many attractions that existed in the area and where to access them. Then when we arrived and walked through the door for the first time, we were initially almost stunned by how beautiful, functional, clean, well appointed, and so comfortable a living space it was! What a treat to be able to come back to it every evening after a full day of hiking, rafting, or just exploring the region. And watching the sunset from the spacious deck with a glass of wine was always a highlight of the day! It's very apparent that Pam takes great deal of pride in this property, and sincerely derives joy in sharing it with other nature lovers.

Thank you Pam!

The pictures don't give justice to the property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week escaping the hustle and bustle of Atlanta. The property was the perfect size for our family of 5 and we enjoyed the remoteness of the location atop the mountain. The views were breathtaking and we enjoyed the immense amount of natural light that comes through the huge windows on three sides of the property. The homeowner is very accommodating and is very easy to work with. We enjoyed the wide variety of books that nicely adorned the main living area as well as watching the birds enjoying the bird feeders that are on both corners of the house. The house was clean, neat, and very nicely decorated. None of us wanted to leave. Suggest driving to the property for the first time while there is still light as the house is atop the mountain. However, the drive is not intimidating at all after the first few times. Lots of great places to hike and enjoy the scenery every where you look. We highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a one of a kind location that is nestled away. Hope you enjoy this place as much as we did.

Amazing opportunity!

  • 5 of 5

There are not enough wonderful words to descirbe this home, it's owner Pam, and the Natahala Area. It's only been two months since our stay but we talk of it almost daily, as does our 2 1/2 year old. We are early risers and had the wonderful experience of listening to barred owls calling for their mates, Something the toddler is now obsessed with!

Not only do I support the other reviews I've read, as they are all true, but the fact that this wonderfully remote & peaceful home is 45 minutes from EVERYTHING. Literally. My husband is not one to sit still and most vacations are spent on the road with different accommodations every few days. The mountain view home allowed us to have daily excursions (NOC, Franklin Gem Mines, Ashville, Lake Natahala, AT Firetower hike, Tsuli Fontana Damn & Tail of The Dragon, Joyce Kilmer Forest) and return home every afternoon/evening to relax and enjoy the amazing area.

Memories were made there and a piece of our hearts will forever remain!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Mountainview House is a wonderful home away from home. Pam has gone to great lengths to assure that the house has every creature comfort that one would like. The view from the Living Room/Dining Room is beautiful and made even more so by all the hungry birds that visited the feeders each day. Although it was cold outdoors it was warm and toasty inside. The kitchen is well stocked with every dish and utensil needed. There are plenty of linens, games, books, etc. The Wifi was strong and there was plenty to watch on the Dish TV. The second bedroom is comfortable with two twin beds and the small third bedroom (that's used for a TV room with sleeper sofa) was great to sit and read. Although the fires and smoke in the region kept us indoors most of the time it really was the perfect house to just kick back and relax. One definitely needs to follow her directions to the house for the most direct and best way to her beautiful, secluded home. Pam, thanks for a relaxing Thanksgiving week.

My husband and I stayed at Mountain View house recently and we loved it. The location is amazing , the house is beautiful, comfortable, and spotless. The location is secluded and serene with great views!! Pam was wonderful to work with. She was very attentive and very caring about any concerns we had. We enjoyed all the humming birds, the doe and her baby that came up the driveway, hiking all the nearby trails, canoeing and swimming in Lake Nantahala, and much more. You won't be disappointed!!

My family and I decided to skip the amusement parks and hit the mountains this year. It was exactly what we needed. The views were beautiful and the cabin was perfect. Pam went above and beyond helping us book outings. She emailed us websites and even book marked a binder she created with what she thought would be appropriate for the ages of my children. Everything about the trip was wonderful. I highly recommend Mountainview House!
