PERFECT Home Base for our Family Mountain Holiday!

  • 4 of 5

Horse Shoe Bend worked out perfectly for our family New Year's Weekend! We were three adult couples. Along with games, meals, and relaxing at the cabin, we visited Harrah's casino several times, and spent a day checking out Bryson City's restaurants and Breweries.

Donnie was very accessible to help and answer questions from the time we booked. He even talked the guys through a small glitch with the downstairs heater when we arrived.

We enjoyed the indoor fireplace very much! But I had the impression there was an outdoor fire pit as well. If there was, we didn't find it.

It was great to find a pet-friendly place that met all our other needs as well! The pups enjoyed going for walks in the woods around the house.

The only minor inconvenience was no "public" bathroom....Each of the two bathrooms is only accessible through a bedroom. It worked out fine for us. But non-family groups might want to note that.

Overall, a great experience, and we hope to return to Horse Shoe Bend at some point!

Cabin Review

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin! It was cozy and a perfect fit for our family. We’ll definitely go again! Easy access to the Polar Express and Cherokee!!

The only problem we had was finding it. Our google map couldn’t locate the roads. Hope google will update!

About Donnie Mohn

I bought 'Horse Shoe Bend' in 2006. To me the Smoky Mountain Region had always been appealing. There is endless beauty and a rich history throughout the area. My son, Donnie handles the rentals for the cabin and we visit it often as we enjoy our trips there every bit as much as our guests. We welcome you to visit 'Horse Shoe Bend' on your next visit to the great Smoky Mountains.

This particular location is so convenient to all there is to offer yet it is located off of the beaten path and offers such peace and quiet after a day of taking in all of the sights and activities in the area.
