                                                      Teresa R.

                                                      Our stay at Nancy's house in Waynesville was great. The house is a few miles from downtown, via a long winding road down the mountain, but worth the drive. The house is quaint, comfortable and just as it appears in the VRBO placement. Nancy is so sweet and personable. Great to work with. We had no complaints and would love to visit again. Perhaps when it is warmer. I would definitely rent Nancy's cottage again!!

                                                      Lovely Peaceful Cottage High on Hospitality

                                                      Scott C.

                                                      Such a perfect and immaculate cottage on a stream nestled into the peaceful mountain setting. This is such an ideal location with so many lovely mountain destinations close by. Perfect place to regroup and recharge. We loved our stay here and will return. Thank you.

                                                      Just like home

                                                      William G.

                                                      Everything clean and warm. Always ready for our stays. Great place to spend time.

                                                      Great little cabin and lovely owner

                                                      Catherine M.

                                                      This was our second stay at Chinkapin Cabin and it was just as clean and comfortable as our first visit. The cabin is just a little out of town on a country road but convenient to shopping and restaurants in Waynesville. Nancy and William live across the street and are available if you need anything. Nancy welcomed us at check-in to show us around and answer any questions we had. Chinkapin is a great choice!


                                                      Nancy J.

                                                      This cabin was immaculate, cozy, nicely furnished and decorated. Very comfortable beds. Nice big yard on a babbling creek. Kitchen had all the tools we needed to cook. Location is close to town. Nancy and William were enjoyable to visit with and very accommodating. When we return to the area we will definitely stay here again. Thank you Nancy and William, we really enjoyed your cabin.

                                                      Comfortable, cozy and clean as a whistle!

                                                      Justin & Natalie R.

                                                      This sweet little cabin was the perfect place for our family to relax and unwind. The beds were super comfy, we had everything we needed and wanted and it was impeccably clean. We have allergies and were glad to find a place where we didn't have to worry about dust or pet dander. Nancy goes above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need. She and her husband are the sweetest people you'll ever meet and we felt like family by the time we left! We went to Asheville a couple of times during our stay and Hendersonville to pick apples. This cabin was in a great location. Quiet and peaceful!
