Beautiful cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best VBROs we have rented. Very spacious and comfortable with all the luxuries of home. The only draw back for us was the stairs. All of the living area was upstairs. If you do not have difficulty climbing stairs then this is a perfect place for you. I will say that there was a mini-kitchen downstairs which was perfect for the one in our party who has some difficulty climbing the stairs. We also had some trouble working the high-tech tv systems. We were not familiar with high tech. One member of our party was familiar with a similar system.

Overall, excellent experience.

A great get away spot!

  • 4 of 5

I will be renting this again. Owner is very high tech. Has great set up. No reason for anyone to be bored. Had family from ages of 8 to 68 and everyone enjoyed. The home is supplied with anything you could ever need or forgotten. Great quality of towels and linens. Top of line appliance and beds were very comfortable. Rec room is located where you don't have to worry about having fun as you play.

Modern, well appointed cabin exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

The first thing I thought upon entering the cabin was 'This place is a lot nicer than the pictures!'. After picking rooms (the master suite is amazing, btw), my friends and I settled in to games of ping pong, pool, hiking the nearby Talullah Gorge, cooking meals in the modern kitchen, relaxing in the hottub, and even some great star-gazing. Since we stayed here over New Years', we we able to watch a few college football games on the gigantic projection tv in the downstairs rec-room. Although we didn't get the chance to try, life-size Mario-Kart or Smash-Brothers or Rock-Band on the projection tv would be truly amazing! Long story short, my friends and I barely scratched the surface of the possbilies for things to do here. Tons of things for everybody to do and conveniently located for traveling up from Atlanta, this place has it all!

Nice getaway

  • 4 of 5

A group of 12 of us stayed at this property and it was very nice. The only complaint I would have is, the tvs are hard to opperate. There are 3 remotes for one tv. Otherwise very well stocked and a beautiful piece of property
