Why Mary Jo chose Scaly Mountain

This house is nestled in the woods with gorgeous views and a flowing waterfall. The sounds of nature permeate your surrounding. It is secluded for those who seek a quiet nature setting but it also is located in an area where you can venture out and find the 'thrill' that only this area can bring! That's why I had to have it!!

What makes this house unique

The property is a great place for children and dogs to run free! There is a National Forest behind the property, so it is very private, peaceful and therapeutic!

Hiking, shopping, wineries and dining out too : )

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great house! Great area! There is so much to do in a weekend! Loved hiking down to the gorgeous waterfall covered in snow. Tubing at the Scaly Outdoor Center was awesome. Highlands is a beautiful mountain town. We will definately be back!

Great quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

Clean, quiet, fabulously decorated, comfy and really nicely set up. Hiking is right outside and so is a great view. Decks on both floors is amazing as well. Can’t say enough about this nice retreat.

What a great, relaxing couple of days. From walking the waterfalls, hiking the mountain trails or playing the slots in Cherokee, we couldn't have asked for a better area or accommodations, The cabin was very comfortable and homey and had everything we needed. Breakfast on the deck, relaxing fires in the firepit in the evening and great memories of a great time away. We will definitely be back soon!!

Perfect seclusion

  • 5 of 5

Truly off the grid, mountain paradise to relax with our dogs. Spent our days trail running and waterfall hopping! Evenings swinging on the porch watching hummingbirds feed and fell asleep to the sound of the waterfall nearby! Will be back thank you!

Peaceful and Secluded

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Scaly Mountain. The cabin had everything we needed. It was very peaceful and secluded. We especially enjoyed decks and fire pit. We are bird lovers and the hummingbirds put on a show daily. We also enjoyed the on property trails and waterfall.

Beautiful, secluded mountain hideaway for a great price!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place! The pictures don’t do it justice. It was very spacious for my grandparents, father, and me. Plus, it was very dog friendly, so I even had my Aussie. The house had everything we needed and then some. It had all of the essentials (dishes, linens, etc.) but also had a great porch swing bed (great for napping), an ENO hammock, beautifully laid out trails, a waterfall, and a fire pit. My Aussie had a great time exploring the trails and just being able to be with the family. However, it is pretty secluded and on a bumpy dirt road, so something bigger than a car is recommended, like an SUV. Also, there is ZERO cell service out there, so be sure to DOWNLOAD HER DIRECTIONS on how to get to the house!!!! We made the mistake of not having the directions and just going off the GPS and got very lost. Lastly, Mary Jo was great! The blinds in the laundry room got tore up and I let her know as soon as we went into Dillard. But she was very understanding. We all had a great time! My cousin has already booked for September, so I will be back!
