It was one of the most beautiful settings we have ever seen. The brook was mesmerizing.

  • 5 of 5

Our overall experience was a 10. Best VRBO ever, and absolutely immaculate. The furnishings were lovely, the bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was supplied with everything that even a gourmet cook would need. Nancy's attention to detail was obvious throughout the cabin, and she was always available if needed. The beautiful setting and the enchanting cabin provided us with memories that we will forever cherish.

Perfect Getaway...

  • 5 of 5

The cabin and grounds are immaculate and the location is perfect! It is just minutes from downtown Waynesville but it seems like you are up the mountain. Beds are comfortable and the cabin is beautifully appointed. Nancy and William are very friendly and genuine and just across the street. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend this property for a peaceful, restful getaway.

A Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I love staying in the Waynesville, NC area and we were looking for a place to stay for several days just to relax and catch our breath after an extremely busy few months. The accommodations of Chinkapin Cabin far exceeded our expectations!

Upon our arrival, Nancy greeted us with genuine friendly warmth and gave us a quick tour and a little history of the cabin. We found it to be as lovely as the pictures indicated, well equipped and extremely clean! Our bed was comfortable and there were plenty of fresh towels to meet our needs. All of these qualities are what we look for when booking a place to stay!!!! But there is more...the icing on the cake is the creek that runs right in front of the cabin! Our favorite spot to hang out was on the swing right on the front porch. From this delightful spot we could watch the hummingbirds feed and listen to the tranquil sound of the flowing water from Camp Branch. It truly was a little slice of heaven!!!

Nancy and William were the best hosts anyone could ask for. They made sure that all our needs were met and were available if we needed anything. After having a little fender bender during our stay, William personally accompanied my husband to his preferred body shop to get a little adjustment made to our car for the trip home.

We highly recommend Chinkapin Cabin! It will be our first choice to stay whenever we visit Waynesville! Thank you, Nancy and William, for sharing it with us!
