Great cabin, helpful staff, beautiful location!
Great cabin, helpful staff, beautiful location. It a bit of a drive to any town.
Very nice house, very clean, plenty of room, amazing veiws!
Thank you Edie! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! Jeanette
Beautiful cabin! Clean, stocked kitchen and bathrooms, comfy beds, etc...
Our family had a great time here! We are likely to return! Well kept vacation home. Fully stocked kitchen. Had plenty of towels. Comfy beds. The only complaint if we have to have one is the drive to the cabin... super curvy, mountain roads. And no yard. But great hiking trails surrounding the house!
Clean, quiet and plenty of space
My family shared this cabin with another family of three over Thanksgiving this year. The house is very large and clean and had more than enough space for the six of us. In fact, when we arrived and toured the home we kept commenting on how much space there was! It seemed like there was room after room in this place!
Jeanette was very responsive and helpful when we had questions or needed extra items.
A note for future renters... It takes roughly 10-15 minutes to drive from the main road up the mountain to the cabin. While we enjoyed the breathtaking views about halfway up, it took us a bit to get to the grocery store, shopping, etc. So, plan accordingly if arriving in the evening, especially if you plan to go back out to stock up on food. I would recommended doing that drive up the mountain in daylight for at least the first time since there are a lot of twists and turns and blind corners/driveways.
That said, we've stayed in many mountain cabins before where access was via a dirt road. This cabin is a paved road all the way to the property which made it less daunting.
The only real negative is the lack of internet to the cabin (all cabins share a package and when data is close to reaching the plan limit it slows to a very frustrating crawl). I understand there is limited availability that far off the beaten path so it was expected and Jeanette even added more data to the plan to try and alleviate the problem. But, be aware you cannot stream movies or other content as these hog up the bandwidth and leave other cabins in the interwebs darkness. When we arrived, internet was at such a crawl we couldn't even load maps to get to the grocery store via Wi-fi. Also, AT&T cellular users will have a very low signal if any at all which exacerbated our situation.
Overall, we had a great time wandering the property, shopping in the quaint downtown stores of Franklin, Bryson City and Dillard, hiking the neighboring trails, and cooking up a feast in the cabin for Thanksgiving.
Very nice accommodations!
Great house, a lot of attention to detail, high-quality throughout
Pros: Our experience was great, we enjoyed our 2-night stay very much! The house is built and maintained at high quality standards - kudos!
Cons (and reasons for giving less than 5 stars): the houses have been built too close to each other, with limited view and no back or front yard; service was not really 5-star: (1) the jacuzzi was set at 90 F degrees (which is too cold for an October day); one person of our group (more knowledgeable on this, as an owner of one) tried to change the settings, but could not; after an hour of trying, left a message with the owner, but never got any call back (too bad; in fact Dr. Google helped with that later and we managed to fix the technical issue for a short while); (2) internet speed was horrendous, from the beginning (day 1, hour 1) getting the message: the data quota was surpassed, you may experience limited internet speeds (indeed!); (3) the directions to the house are dead wrong, as they have been written by a math-challenged person: 0.09 miles is not equal to 9 tenths of a mile (as the owner believes), but to 9 hundredths of a mile; all in all, the distance from the gate of the subdivision to the house is approximately 1.8 miles. I did include this part here not to insult anyone or to show resentments vs the owner (who hung up on us precipitously when we tried to make the point about the wrong directions), but to help other tourists not getting lost (a very frequent occurrence, as we observed) and try any undeveloped road within 1 mile of the gate. The anxiety of those who arrived to the property after dark was quite significant, as GPS, phone map apps or owner directions are all inaccurate!
Otherwise, a great rental!
The great smoky mountains.. Home to breathtaking national parks and thriving artistic communities, it is no surprise that this area is one of the most visited vacation destinations in the country. And nestled right in the middle, between the great smoky mountains national park, the nantahala national forest, and the quaint mountain town of franklin…to the west, the contiguous half-million acres of the nantahala national forest are home to hiking trails, mountain streams and waterfalls, the whitewater adventures of the nantahala, pigeon, and ocoee rivers, and literally hundreds of species of wildlife and flowers. To the north, the mile-high peaks of the great smoky mountains national park roll into the distance. And just five minutes away is the town of franklin. Enjoy the leisurely pace with a stroll down main street to shop for pottery and antiques. Or you can catch a performance from the western north carolina jazz society, and tour the galleries and artistic communities of nearby sylva, and dillsboro. These towns boast charm and character that draws locals and tourists alike. Here you’ll discover a unique mix of folk art and sophisticated galleries nestled in between fine dining restaurants and comforting mom and pop diners. Asheville, bryson city, cherokee, and waynesville are also only a half an hour away. Franklin is situated along major highways us 23/441 and us 64, with easy access to major interstates i-40, i-26 and i-85. Atlanta is just 127 miles to the south, knoxville 110 miles to the north and asheville is 65 miles to the east. Western north carolina offers everything you could be looking for, with an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life that is hard to find.
