Beautiful views, comfortable home away from home, and close to many interesting places of interest.

  • 5 of 5

The view from your back deck and just about anywhere we went was fantastic. Fly fishing in the Ocunaluftee River in Great Smokies National Park was great. The boys didn't catch anything but the scenery was inspiring. Highlands, NC is a hidden jewel with many great restaurants. We ate at the Wild Thyme Gourmet Restaurant - excellent food - excellent service. The Farmers Market in Cashiers - great brisket and a take home apple pie was a big hit.

Everyone enjoyed their stay - grandchildren - mothers - grandparents/parents.

Thank you,

Jim & Gail Barry (gandparents)

nice home

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful with top of the line features. The screened porch in the back got lots of use...what a nice place for morning coffee. Part of my group of 26 stayed here and had nothing but praise for it.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

Best vacation home we've ever rented. Everything was perfect- gorgeous house, beautiful view, extremely well stocked- there's even a crockpot, firewood and starter logs. Anything you would ever want for a family vacation. The decor is lovely and the screened in porch with fireplace and dining table was a great place to relax. The information William sent prior to our rental was very helpful - great directions to the house, area attractions and recommendations. Brandon checked in on us quickly after we got to the house to make sure we had everything we needed and to highlight resort activities for the weekend. The resort is gorgeous! Kayak, canoe and boat rentals along with a beautiful pool, hot tubs and kids pool slide. The staff were fabulous and the food at the lodge was great. Do note the lodge is about a 15 minute trip up a curvy mountain road but so worth it. Thanks so much for a great family trip, William.
