Great property with majestic view of the Smokey's

  • 4 of 5

The view was absolutely magnificent. The property was very clean and well maintained. The owners were very responsive and cordial. The only (main) problem we had was that there was quite a bit of construction activities going on right next door and in the front of the property during the course of our stay (it's a gated mountain community). The constant equipment noise impaired our ability to fully enjoy the magnificent view with solitude especially in the mornings (they started early unfortunately). Otherwise, I would have given a five star. Evening times were excellent as construction crew were gone by mid day. I understand from the owners that construction activities have been intermittent, so just have your expectation management set. Hopefully, all the construction will be completed in the near future (they seemed to be 80-90% completed). We would definitely consider returning (but after construction activities are completed).

You really are "almost in heaven: with the beauty of this cabin and the view!

  • 5 of 5

This place is gourgeous! The view is stunning. The pictures don't reflect how beautiful this cabin and the view! The kitchen is very well stocked! I enjoyed playing pool and corn-hole with the kids! And drinking coffee on the beautiful wrap around porch was something to look forward to in the mornings! Oh...and the hot tub was just icing on the cake.

Thanks for letting us stay in this BEAUTIFUL retreat. It is well worth the drive and you will be very happy with this beautiful treasure in the mountains!

Amazing View, Beautiful Cabin!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were blown away when we walked on to the back side of the wrap around deck and saw the most amazing view of the mountains and the clouds BELOW us. We were in awe and it set the tone for a great vacation! The cabin itself had all you needed and was kept in perfect condition, you can definitely tell the owners take pride in their property. It is perched on the top of a mountain in a gated community so you always feel completely safe and relaxed.

There is plenty to do in the surrounding areas and the Nantahala Outdoor Center is highly recommended as they have lots to do there and great restaurants for lunch. Also, rent a boat from Alarka boat rentals and go tubing. They have very nice boats and give you a free tube to use, it was one of the highlights of our trip and well worth the money!

My only suggestion to anyone considering renting this property is to keep a paper copy of the directions they send to you in your car because it is definitely off the beaten path (and I love it!) Also, heed their warnings about needing a 4wd vehicle in certain times of the year because I could surely see this being an issue.

Overall a perfect time with friends and family. Thank you to the owners for sharing such a special place with us!!!

Almost Heaven as everything we were looking for and more! There was plenty of room for the 6 of us, clean, cozy and had everything we needed for our stay. Views were beautiful! Sunsets were AMAZING!! When we booked our stay, we had a lot of questions and the owners we quick answer all of our questions. Would definitely recommend this property. We are looking forward to returning in the future.

Spectacular Vacation Get-Away Location!

  • 5 of 5

God absolutely knocked our socks off with this cabin!!! We wanted a place with enough wiggle room for 6 adults to R&R, a place somewhat isolated from the rest of the world, and a place to simply breathe in God's majesty. "Almost Heaven" was everything we were looking for...and MORE. We highly recommend this cabin retreat. It was a joy to work with the owners (via email), and their cabin is not lacking in R&R amenities. Words simply cannot describe the majestic views. We absolutely would return to this location with our family.

Nice place.

  • 4 of 5

The owner was extremely helpful and prompt. It rained most of our stay, but with the large wrap around porch and plenty of house space, there was plenty of room and the house was comfortable. The gas fireplaces are a nice amenity to have if it gets chilly or just to sit by at night. The view from the cabin was extensive and beautiful. Overall a great place.
