Stunning Views!

  • 5 of 5

This cute house was all about the views. They were spectacular. The cabin is very well situated.

It's about 10-15 min. to downtown Franklin and about 15 min. to downtown Dillsboro and Sylva. All three towns had really cute downtown's with cute shops and restaurants. We had the best BBQ we have every had at Haywood's Smokehouse in Dillsboro. Had an amazing meal at Caffe Rel in Franklin. Don't let this restaurant fool you. It is connected to a Hot Spot Gas Station but the food is upscale and amazing. The cabin had everything we needed to feel right at home. Our favorite this was standing on the back deck watching the stars and night. We also really enjoyed the fire pit. We will definitively be going back.

This was an amazing steal and we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were incredible, the lighting was awesome, and our stay was extremely enjoyfyl. Hope you choose to stay here you won't regret it!

Awsome view beautiful cabin loved it

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at dusk the road was intimidating for a flat lander after we arived we called the owners and found out that Papa johns delivers thank god cause i was not going down the mountain till daylight 😊i was perfectly fine eating the peanut butter crackers we had my advice to all bring some food for the first night 🌙 other than that it was the nicest weekend Trip we have ever taken the cabin was so clean the view was breath taking there is so much to do with in a short distance we will definitely come back soon .as far as the driveway to cabin it became just part of the charater of the beautiful area and a lot of funny story's to tell are friends.The pizzas delivery man flow up that mountain like it was nothing so being a professional driver it was a challenge for me to put on my big boy pants and get used to it after i went down the first time it wasn't bad at all .I give the place a 5 out of 5 the view is worth the trip I cant wait to come back

French Chic right in the heart of NC

  • 4 of 5

My mom, sister, and I go on an annual trip, and this year we chose the Bryson City area. We booked our stay based on the pictures and the price. As other reviewers have said..the views were absolutely amazing!

The style was very French Chic. You can tell the owners have put a lot of work into remodeling. It is not your typical mountain cabin decor at all. If you are looking for a hunting camp, manly space, then this is probably not what you want. On the other hand, if you are wanting a super cute quiet County French Chic space, this is your place! My sister and I kept saying how much our daughter's would love the place, but how quickly they would dirty up the clean white space in a heartbeat!

It was extremely clean and well cared for. There were definitely pros and cons, but the pros definitely outweighted the cons.


1. The GPS led us on a wild goose chase after we turned on the road by the office. The roads are steep and aren't easy to navigate at night. (However, Jeanette and Mary were quick to take care of that for us, and Jeanette even drove us to the cabin the first night.)

2. There are 3 floors you must climb in order to access all of the cabin. If you have trouble with mobility, this probably wouldn't be a good spot. (We did just fine, but others may not.)

3. The bedroom on the main floor has a futon, but it isn't futon size that we were used to. We couldn't use it, so I slept on the couch. (The couch was SUPER COMFY! So no complaints there!)


1. Customer service was amazing! Mary responded immediately to all questions we had. Jeanette was a trooper getting us to our cabin late at night. They were truly wonderful.

2. That view....THAT VIEW....THAT VIEW!!! We are used to being in Gatlinburg & Sevierville, and while the views are usually see hundreds of cabins in your sightline. That was not the case here. It truly was just gorgeous.

3. It is so close to so many fun little towns. It is just a hop, skip, and jump to Bryson City (which is super fun). Franklin is a cute town, and Dillsboro was probably our favorite town to walk around. Our girls trip means we get to go in all the shops that we won't do with our husbands and children, and these towns were filled with all of those places.

4. The cabin was equipped with most everything that was needed to cook. (We had dinner there each night. We did bring a few of our own items, but for basic meals, it is provided.)

A great place!

Awesome view!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our view of all the mtns in full color! The home was so comfortable and beautifully decorated. Loved sitting on the deck and relaxing while having our morning coffee or out under the stars and full moon while we were there. Everything was very clean! The owners have done a great job and are very quick to answer any questions.

Owner's Response: Dear Peggy, Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review. We are so happy that you enjoyed our mountain home as much as we do. We completely transformed the house inside and out and it means a lot to hear how much people are enjoying it. We fell in love with that view and it brings us so much peace and joy. Something so special about the mountains! We hope that you will stay with us again in the future. Take care. Mary, RIchard/Owners

Lovely little A frame with gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a relaxing getaway in the mountains of Western NC! The cabin was charming and the views stunning! Jeanette, the property manager, was professional, kind and easily accessible. The cabin lacked wine glasses (though cut glass compotes and champagne flutes were available) coffee mugs (we used the tea cups and saucers with frequent refills) and extra blankets to snuggle under while star gazing or watching a football game. The electric fireplace was not connected to a power source, but not a big deal to us. The color scheme was restful and the cabin very neat and clean. Jeanette had come by prior to our arrival and had turned on lights and heat, making for a very favorable first impression. Overall, a very nice property and a good value!
