Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The most amazing vacation. My wife and I stayed for 4 days and everything was perfect. There were plenty of hiking trails, the cabin was clean and well stocked. We didn't want to leave. The hottub and wifi were great. Perfect secluded getaway and still just minutes from town. Staff helped every step of the way and if you need anything they'll take care of it.

Great views!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for 8 adults. The bedrooms and baths gave everyone enough space and privacy. We loved the covered porches. They were perfect for the one rainy day we had. The views were amazing, the sunsets awesome. The management company was responsive to our needs and brought us propane after hours as the tanks were empty. We loved the fire pit and enjoyed sitting around it on the cool evenings. Location was great. Short drive to GSM Park and to Fontana Lake. Close to the casino also.

Perfect Cabin, Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in lots of vacation homes around the country (I prefer them to hotels) so I feel as though I'm pretty knowledgeable about the biz. Without a doubt, this is the best one I've ever stayed in. Everything was perfect. Laura was very friendly and easy to work. She even helped us purchase tickets to the Biltmore house and recommended some great local restaurants (go to the Balsam Mountain Inn for a nice dinner). The cabin itself was immaculate and by far the cleanest one I've ever been to. The view is out of this world! We don't typically visit the same area twice but I'm considering planning another trip to this same cabin next summer.
