Nature lovers this place is for you!

  • 5 of 5

We love to travel to new towns and try and use VRBO or Airbnb when we go. Simple check in, we didn't have to worry about meeting up with owners for a key, they had a key code. The cabin was perfect for our stay. Kitchen had everything we needed. As stated bring extra paper products and laundry & dish soap.

The cabin is close to amazing hikes in Gorges State Park.

We enjoyed dining out in 3 different towns close to the cabin: Brevard, Highlands and Sapphire .

We caught several fish and really enjoyed the solitude of the cabin. Love that the lake is non motorized so peaceful at all times during the day.

We will book a full week next time. We did not have time to see all we wanted to see in just 3 nights. If you want fancy save this gem of a cabin for true nature lovers!

Private getaway

  • 4 of 5

My family really enjoyed the rustic cabin in the woods. We loved kayaking on Hogback lake, the scenery is picturesque. It was a pleasure to cool off from the hot Florida summer. I would definitely stay here again.

Holiday getaway

  • 4 of 5

My daughter and I took a short vacation to recharge our batteries, and this darling house did the trick. We kayaked during the day along with other delightful vacationers, and went into Cashiers for wonderful shopping. We ate all meals here as we didn't want to miss any of the wonderful relaxed environment. We will be back!

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is described as a getaway and it was true. We had a girl's weekend and we all traveled from various places in SC & GA. We wanted a place we could unwind but also get out and enjoy the shops. We had 2 avid hikers with us who insisted we hike in Panthertown and that was a highlight of our trip. We loved having the kayaks and went out a couple of times a day on the boats. The kitchen had all we needed to prepare meals. We did have pizza at Slabtown and it was delicious. The walk down to the lake is windy as described and we got our workout going up and down the stairs. We are getting our dates together to return next spring. The cabin books up early for the summer months.

Beautiful setting in convenient location!!

  • 5 of 5

We left 100+ temps to enjoy the 70-80's of Sapphire. The house had everything we needed with plenty of room for the five of us. We Mae a few day trips to nearby waterfalls etc but also enjoyed the dock and boats provided. When I returned home I realized I had left some things and the owner boxed them right up and mailed them to me I was very appreciative!!! We will definitely go back
