My boyfriend and I had the best time at this adorable little cabin. It was the perfect size for us and my dog Phoebe. We came down on a Friday evening and stayed until Sunday morning, literally walking out the door at 10am (check out time) because we loved it so much and didn't want it to end. We had dinner at Granny's Kitchen (buffet style country cooking, open seasonally, excellent price) on Friday evening and stopped by the Wine & Liquor Store for some adult beverages ;) Saturday we drove into Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge and spent the day shopping. We had lunch at the Apple Barn (a must-do!) and took the scenic route back, stopping at some of the overlooks on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Saturday evening we had dinner at the little Italian place in Bryson City. Highly recommend! The service isn't great, however the food is delicious and so worth the wait and not - so - friendly service. I'm also from the south, so just because it's not my used to southern hospitality service, you may love the service! Either way, must try! We went into a few of the gift shops (love the Loose Moose!) and picked up some sweet treats at the Chocolate store, please forgive me I cannot remember the name. All within walking distance if you just park downtown Bryson City. Sunday we took our time getting packed up and again, were literally locking the door at 10am. So sad to leave! However we weren't ready to go home yet, so we stopped to see "The Road to Nowhere", known for the creepy store behind it and literally, the road stopping in nowhere. We had fun exploring and walking my dog around the area. We found an adorable store in Maggie Valley as we made our way home. It's called Southern Charm and it was right up our alley! Tons of boots, t-shirts and women's boutique clothing.We stopped in Waynesville after leaving Maggie Valley. LOVED it! Such a cute, but becoming little town. We ate at Bogarts, again a must-do! So delicious! And the original owner named the place after his dog. How cute! We then found this adorable dog bakery downtown. We took Phoebe in and spent about thirty minutes chatting with the owner, looking at the dogs she had there up for adoption (how sweet!) and tasting various treats/shopping. We had such a great time and can't wait to come back.
Oh! And the hot-tub is amazing! And the bed is incredibly comfortable! It was the cherry on top!
