Lovely and comfortable cabin

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and well equipped cabin surrounded by quiet woods and beautiful views. A delight to stay in. Relaxing on the porch in the hot tub was our favorite thing. The three floors allowed the kids, teens and adults in our group to each have their own space. We did some beautiful hikes within 30 minute drive of the cabin. Internet connection was spotty, but that's not why we were there! Phone service was fine (Sprint). I appreciated the filtered water and extra linens. Would absolutely return!

Nice Quiet retreat

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed the cabin. Plenty of space, beds are very comfortable, lots of space on the porch and great views of the sunset each night. Stayed with 3 adult couples and 2 grown daughters and never felt crowded.

Loved the back porch! We had a great time!

  • 4 of 5

Only real criticisms are that the ceilings between the bedroom need soundproofing! I was awakened from a sound sleep from the sound of footsteps above the master. Sound was so loud it was like someone was crashing through the ceiling. Master bathroom shower is so small I am not sure why they bothered to put one in. Thirdly, we repeatedly had to clean up after a hungry raccoon who helped himself to the contents of the garbage cans on a nightly basis. I would suggest investing in cans with more secure/locking lids. The house otherwise was very nice. We would rent it again!👍?

The view was beautiful!

  • 3 of 5

The reason I gave it a 3 star was for the view. This house is up a steep one way road with not good pull over places. The under sink leaked the trash was never pickup. So we were not able to put all trash in trash cans. Lights over sink didn't work so kitchen sink was dark. Upstairs AC unit didn't work. Ceiling fans downstairs didn't work. They offered us to move to another house but I was there for a wedding and had already unloaded all the stuff I had to cook and decorate with so moving was out of the question so the other option the gave us was to open some windows tjatbit would be cool enough and that was not the case, but as I said the view was beautiful!

Owner's Response: Hey Lesley, We truly want every single guest to have a great experience so when things don't go as planned it's as disappointing to us as it is to you. We appreciate you alerting us to some maintenance items that need looked at (leaky sink, ceiling fans not working). These are things that had not previously been reported to us and we will in fact look at. The cabin is on weekly trash pick up so the cans are emptied once per week. It sounds like the previous guests earlier in the week left a lot of trash and the garbage service had already ran, leaving the cans full. We would have gladly came and taken it off for you had we been made aware of the situation. While there are a lot of great advantages to small town living, finding repair men at closing time on a Friday afternoon isn't one of them. Unfortunately this is the situation we ran into with the AC. There are only a handful of HVAC companies in our town and after calling each one we were unable to get a technician out there last minute. Once we did this, we knew our only option of resolving the issue was to move you to another cabin (less than 1/4 mile away, exact same floor plan, bed arrangement, and amenities). Since you elected not to move cabins, the only advice we could give to you was to open the windows and let the breeze in. Luckily the temperatures were extremely mild last weekend (low of 50's at night, high 60's during the day). We did have an HVAC technician go to the cabin on Monday and he was unable to find an issue with either unit. The temperature upstairs was set to 73 and he reported that cold air was blowing out of all vents and that it was in fact 73 degrees in the cabin (outside temperature at the time was over 80 degrees so it would have been much hotter if the AC wasn't functioning properly). We went ahead and had him add more Freon to the unit as a precaution. Maybe whatever issue was happening over the weekend worked itself out at some point during your stay? Again, we do appreciate the feedback and hope that despite the hiccups you still had a lovely time. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

Great view and nice location for day trips

  • 4 of 5

This house really delivered. I was skeptical of the view, thinking there would be houses right on top of this place and they used some creative anglers for the pictures, but its very nice and private. There are a few homes on this mountain but you feel secluded.... we stayed in the winter time and it was still very private despite the leaves being off the trees.

The location was great for us, took about an hour to get to Asheville and a little over an hour to drive to Gatlinburg (without stopping at any of the scenic overlooks through the national park). It was very surreal driving to Gatlinburg and seeing burned out houses/hotels on the way to Ober. Took us about 2.5 to reach the cabin from Atlanta, doing 80-90 the majority of the way. We used Waze to get to the antique store across from the turnoff to the cabin and the owner's instructions off the road. We had full Verizon service the whole time.

The cabin is HUGE. Tons of room for a family reunion or group trip. The fireplace throws off a ton of heat... the upstairs loft can get very warm. It took a little playing around with the thermostat and fireplace to make sure the bedrooms were getting warm enough. The cabin has lots of extra blankets, towels, and pillows. The master bed was very comfortable. We did run out of hot water once or twice, so keep an eye on shower time if you have a lot of people getting ready at the same time.

There are plenty of plates, utensils, pots/pans. The owners left us a package with a couple trash bags and some paper towels/TP. We ended up buying more bags at the supermarket.

The local area in quaint. Sylva is a mill town, so is pretty blue collar and everyone I met was nice. The closest super market (Harold's) doesn't sell beer and wine, so we went to some of the local package stores and wine stores. I didn't realize til the trip was almost over that there is another super market on the other side of town with a big beer/wine selection (Food Lion). Kosta's restaurant in Dillsboro had some great lunch/breakfast options.

The road leading up to the cabin is very tight with a bunch of switchbacks, so keep an eye out for pull off areas in case a car is coming from the other direction. I can imagine the road could be pretty tough in sleet/snow. I had to put our SUV into 4wd turning around on a steep part of the gravel driveway one time, so keep an eye on that.

We were very happy with the cabin overall and plan to return again some day.
