What a cozy retreat!

Enjoy a stroll along the ZigZag River, romp in the woody neighborhood or take a moment to relax next to the warming fireplace. For the adventurous, your options are endless. A short distance from the cabin you can hit the slopes, hike, mountain bike or enjoy a nice slice of pizza at the ZigZag Restaurant.

This 1920's era vacation rental home is set quietly among the cedars. The yard is fenced allowing your dog freedom while you are inside making a meal in the cooks kitchen. On the main floor of this cabin you will find an open living room that has a fireplace and a propane stove giving you optimal heat. The kitchen, dining space, bathroom and two bedrooms are also on the main level. Both bedrooms have queen beds and space to tuck away your luggage.

This charming vacation rental home has two modest televisions. You can kick back while watching your favorite show or select a movie out of the home's movie cabinet. On the upper level loft you will find a sitting area. A perfect place for the kids to play a game, color a picture and watch a movie. There is an open walkway that leads to another bedroom where you'll find a twin bed as well as a queen bed.

Whether you stay in or go on an outing, this is a perfect place to call home on your vacation.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This house was enjoyed by all. It has so much character, and lent itself perfectly to our needs. Well equipped and comfortable (beds were comfortable with plenty of extra blankets on chilly days and nights too), I would recommend this spot to anyone and everyone. I'm even thinking of bringing my family back during the summer, I enjoyed it so much!

Old Smokey Cabin = New Traditions

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to the Old Smokey Cabin in Rhododendron was AMAZING and will certainly become an annual tradition for us (if not more frequently!). We loved the cabin, the surrounding area to hike in, friendly neighbors and the feeling of solitude only 40 minutes away from the hustle of the city. If you're looking for a family friendly, cozy get away - this is your place!

Cozy cabin for a friend retreat

What a nice little spot for relaxing on the weekend! Loved the classic cabin feel and was happy to find a great assortment of kitchen utensils. We stayed nice and warm and were super close to some favorite hikes!

Quaint, cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Old Smokey Cabin! It was the PERFECT location for traveling with our dogs because of the fenced back yard. We used the grill each night and built a fire in the fireplace. Rain and mud didn't stop us from walking along the nearby river. Other guests were close by but quiet. It was very peaceful. The cabin's decor reminded us of Christmas from the past. We would stay here any time of year!

Neat old cabin, mouse problems

  • 2 of 5

Neat and unique property, good location, bigger than it looks. Unfortunately, a dead mouse on the couch and mouse droppings under the bed sheets upstairs pretty much wrecked all the positives for us. Get a real cleaning crew on the job and it would be great.

As others have said, was supposed to be a load of firewood, but there wasn't. Not a big deal to me, but will be to some.

Owner's Response: We apologize that mice were a problem for this stay. Since the home is surrounded by nature the mice do tend to sneak in, but we will do our best to keep them out.
