We enjoyed our stay tremendously. Your cabin is so comfortable and the setting is beautiful. We have rented quite a few cabins in the area and yours is without a doubt among our favorites. We look forward to being able to come back. We had a wonderful long weekend getaway.
this place is GORGEOUS ... beautifully decorated and so well maintained! I can't say enough good things about this cabin! the view from the front deck was so pretty and we even got to see the "smoky" they put in the Smoky Mountains early one morning! the directions to the cabin could've been a little more clear and accurate ... we had to pull over and call the help desk after hours! I would recommend this place to everyone! we would also recommend the Smokey Mountain Barbeque restaurant -- was delicious!
My husband and I just returned from a long weekend at this wonderful cabin. It had every amenity we could possibly hope for (well, except for a dishwasher), and we didn't have to leave the cabin all weekend. We hiked the trail to the river (it's steep but not bad), we played pool, we relaxed in the hot tub and we rocked on the front porch and enjoyed the view of the mountains (a bit obstructed by some trees but still very nice). The bed on the main floor is extremely comfortable (and we've "slept" in some very uncomfortable beds in other cabins over the years) and with the windows open for the cool breezes and noises of the night, we slept like babies. I would recommend this cabin to anyone. We really can't wait to go back!
Higher Grounds was a nice/clean cabin. Excellent view of mountains/pasture from family room and covered deck. 3 bedrooms...1 is a loft, 1 on main floor, 1 in basement. Private and quiet at homesite. The walk to the river was enjoyable...my 5 year old may it easily. Would stay here again.
