Updated cabin, beautiful view, comfortable, would rent again

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay here. We went canoeing on the gorgeous lake, hiked to the waterfall, saw some comets in the night sky, soaked in the hot tub, slept great in the comfortable beds. We shopped in Cashiers and Dillsboro. Learned about the scary history of Dillsboro on the ghost tour. Ate pizza at Speedys in Sylva. The cabin has a great layout and is nicely furnished. The hot tub is large and works well. The walk to the dock is an adventure and adds to the cabin coolness! The availability of the canoe was a plus and made us think we must be reincarnated Native Americans as we paddled around the lake and explored the shoreline and island crannies. Why not 5 Stars? We arrived about 9:15 pm. We did have to call the owner to make sure we were going the right way and he very graciously stayed on the phone till we were at the cabin. A motion detector light came on. We then had to make our way to the lockbox and use the flashlights on our cell phones to get the key. (Note that the flashlight provided with the key didn’t work). Then we proceeded to unlock several doors, turn on the water and the breakers for the electricity and go into the house itself where we turned up the heat as it was 55 in the cabin. It warmed up quickly inside. The hot tub took overnight to warm up but worked wonderfully after that initial time. The owner asks that it be turned off after use so we had to plan when we were going to use it to make sure we gave it a couple of hours to reach the perfect temperature again. The TVs are not high def but with the view who watches tv! We didn’t grill so I can’t say how it works but it was clean. We found the keys to the gate and canoe by searching through drawers. Wifi worked great once we found the info. There were some puzzles and a couple of games but we brought our own. Be aware that the place on 107 where you are to take your trash wasn’t open on Sunday so we had to find a place to dump it. Soooooo some small inconveniences for renters reduced our rating to a 4 but they wouldn’t stop us from renting again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. We strive to make it as enjoyable as possible and will take your suggestions to heart and try to improve the experience and the ease of access. The walkway down to the lake is a work in progress and we will be starting a more secure walkway next fall. In regards to the Hot Tub, even when it's cool out it only loses 5-10 degrees in 24hrs. if left covered and only takes an hour to get back to top temperature.

Lovely cabin!

Beautiful views of the lake! Cabin is clean and comfy. Short drive to area shopping and town's activities. Surrounding areas are charming. Enjoyable experience. Only wished the pathway leading to the dock was easily accessible.

Owner's Response: Great guests and the pathway to the dock is a moderate hike and has a natural stone walkway as well as concrete pads for stepping and is easily accessible.

Beautiful property inside and out

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation with a beautiful kitchen, comfortable beds, and a great living area for our family to hang out. The hot tub was great after a long day on the lake. The hike down the mountain to the lake is definitely moderate. We launched our paddle boats from signal marina and it was just a short paddle to the house. Many waterfalls and beautiful places to explore on the lake. The owner was great, very responsive and helpful.

We had a wonderful time! This is a very secluded, comfortable cottage with an amazing view of the lake. The decks, hottub, dock and canoe made our experience even better! Very close drive to beautiful hiking trails, waterfalls, shopping and dining.

We loved it and will be back next year!

Outstanding view!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in the evening and were blown away the next morning when we awoke to the unbelievably beautiful view. The house is up in the treetops with long range views of Lake Glenville. The kitchen is clean and well equipped with many small appliances and plenty of plates, place mats, napkins and more to share a meal while looking at the view. There was plenty of hiking nearby and renting a pontoon boat was our favorite activity. The owner texted us back quickly with any questions we had. We will definitely be coming back, thanks so much!
