At an elevation of 3600 feet, you’ll enjoy the cool mountain breezes from your own front porch swing or rocker. The peace and quiet will overwhelm you year after year. Yet, the convenience to all of the area’s beauty and attractions are at your leisure.

The cabin is tastefully decorated, with full kitchen and amenities. A gas log fireplace and air conditioner ensure your total comfort.

Not well maintained

  • 1 of 5

No central air, bed too small and uncomfortable, inadequate storage space. There is no dishwasher and guests do a horrible job cleaning the dishes after themselves. We went to the store and bought disposable dishes and eating utensils. The furniture was not very comfortable either. The cabin had a musty odor. We did not stay our last night there. Would not stay again either. Description of rental should at least state that there is no central air. It does say that there is a washer and dryer but I could not find them.

Owner's Response: Sorry you were disappointed with your stay. We have been in business since 1999 and have never had any instance that comes even close to what your describing in your review. We live on the property and maintain our rental cabin as our own residence. If your stay was as bad as you say, you should have contacted us any day 24 hours a day. If you visit the mountains again try the multi million dollar Biltmore Estates.

We had an issue.

Everyone knows that sometimes things go wrong. It happens in every business. Such was the case on our visit. That’s when the most important thing becomes: how is management going to react. This review is to let people know that even though it was not his fault, Ray went above and beyond to make things right for my wife and I. It was a level of personal service rarely seen today. Thanks again Ray! We’ll be back.

Deer Country 1

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming little cabin, perfect for 1 to 4 people, perferably a young couple with children. It is decorated cute, has Direct TV, and a DVD player. The TV is attached to the wall above the fireplace and is very small due to the area size. But I doubt most people watch TV with all the stuff to do around there. It does need dinner plates and more serving type utinsels. I had to buy paper plates to use.

The walk to the cabin from your vehicle is steep and the toilet is made for kids... it sits very low to the ground. This is not a 50+ cabin. But if you are a young family and have kids, this cabin is perfect for you. The loft is perfect for kids. The steps are little steep, so I wouldn't recommend the loft for older adults.

This cabin and the other 3 are centrally located to Maggie Valley, Lake Junaluska, Cherokee, and Waynesville. Plenty to do in the area for everyone.

I would highly recommend this cabin or the other 3 Deer Country Cabins.

Awesome property with amazing views plenty of privacy

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I had an awesome time during our stay. We were able to enjoy the view of the mountains from our front porch while drinking our morning coffee each day. The hosts were also very helpful with food recommendations and any other questions we had. We’ll definitely be back!!

Clean, quite and out of the way.

  • 5 of 5

Was looking for a quite time in the mountains and I got it. These cabins were several miles from the nearest town but close enough to several stores for convenient supplies.
