High end, tasteful and creative property with amazing panoramic view!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredibly relaxing week in this beautiful "cabin." The view was so mesmerizing and constantly changing with the clouds, lighting and soaring hawks that the TV never came on once. The owners were very responsive and helpful and we hope to be back soon.

This place is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

From the time you ascend the mountain on which this cabin is located, you can sense that you're approaching peace and quiet! This cabin is tucked away in a private setting and boasts some amazing views of the surrounding mountains. The place is very well adorned and stocked with any amenities you may find that you need. We felt at home and welcome in this cabin and it is very well maintained. The owners go out of their way to ensure your stay is comfortable and will help you with any questions you may have. Their property binder located in the cabin is also chocked full of area attractions and restaurants that one may want to frequent.

I could go on and on, but simply put... try it yourself. You won't be sorry!

Beautiful and cozy

  • 5 of 5

This house is super cozy and clean. It has stunning views and a fantastic kitchen. For a vacation rental the kitchen is very well equipped, and even has sharp knives. It's a bit of a challenge to get there - up a mountain and gravel roads, definitely take the owners advice and come the first time in daylight. Once you've done it the first time though it's a lot easier. Owner communicates very well - very responsive. We had a minor issue with the kitchen sink and it was fixed within a few hours She even did a little holiday decorating before we arrived. It was charming. They have a ton of games, books and other activities so even if you're stuck inside because of weather there is plenty to do. Plus the view!! It never gets old.

We love this house, and the town of Bryson City. We will definitely be back. The Polar Express itself was just Ok. But the quaint town, chocolate shoppe and other activities made up for it.

Perfect! Perfect! Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay. The view is mind-boggling AND therapeutic. Be prepared to live on the fabulous porch. It was the ideal place to celebrate my Dad's 90th birthday. Can't say enough about the Mayhughs' responsiveness when we had questions. Saw the Space Station fly over twice...up close! ;)
