Cute and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

The exact words I kept saying about the cabin during our whole stay; cute and cozy. The property was absolutely beautiful; the ponds, the pastures and the river. The cabin was stocked with everything we might need and the caretakers were very attentive and helpful. We had a special request and the owner was more than accommodating; it made the trip even more memorable. Planning our next trip already!! Thank you!

Quaint & quiet. Wonderful spot for a little get-away.

  • 3 of 5

The cottage was quaint and sitting on the front porch during a rain shower was pleasant. I was quite surprised when I first arrived that I could not find a staircase and found a very challenging latter to get to the loft area. I could not get my luggage up there and needed to wear my backpack to carry my phone and a water to the loft. There was not any pictures on VRBO showing a latter so it took me back some. The two bedrooms on the main level where fine as where the bathrooms. The property manager, Neda was delightful and very helpful!

Beautifully relaxing

  • 4 of 5

The Graves cabin is wonderful and the property is quite nice! The only minor thing was the other cabin situated very close the pics really don't show it. Worked out fine for us as the other cabin was empty for most of our stay. The large house although was full was no concern as there is a good distance between that and Graves. The property contacts onsite were very gracious and kind hosts! Overall we loved it!

Great place. Just like pictures/description. Great cabin look/feel w/ modern kitchen. Clean.

  • 4 of 5

I echo the comments from previous guests that left reviews. This is just what we were hoping for.... If you're looking for a mountain cabin to unwind this fits the bill. You can lounge around on the front porch or family room... and explore the river and ponds on the property... Or you can jump in the car to visit the sights... Waynesville is a 20-30 min drive (nice restaurants and food shopping) and downtown Ashville is about 40 min, so it's a bit remote, but that's probably what you're looking for... We did multiple day trips: Skyline Drive, Chimney Rock, Ashville, New Belgium brewery (great tour), Biltmore (of course). Our pleasant restaurant surprise was the Bavarian Restaurant in Ashville. Not very big, but the ambiance was authentic, friendly wait staff, and delicious German food. It was an enjoyable last evening.

My wife and I and 3 teen age children spent the week. The cabin was quite comfortable. Clean linen/towels.... Nice Queen bedroom for my wife and I... and another for my son.... The girls slept upstairs in the room with 2 bunk beds... My only comment was that the access to the loft is a ladder which was fine for my teens... but might be a bit adventurous for very young kids.... Bottom line.... We were very pleased with the cabin and care taker that was just next door if needed.... Thumbs up....

Nice cabin

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice cabin, clean and well kept. It had bunk beds for kids and two nice rooms with private baths. The shared property was stunning with fishing pond and a beautiful creek. I enjoyed walking and exploring the property. I was really hoping for a private porch with a view but it was not as private as I would have desired.
