  • GORGEOUS MOUNTAIN GETAWAY!!!

    "Our family was looking for a quaint, mountain cabin to enjoy a quality, family-time vacation and Rona's cabin was IT! From the moment we stepped through the front door, we fell in love with Sunali cabin! The breakthtaking views of Fontana Lake and the Great Smoky Mountains from the entire back of the house are stunning. Our children 9yr & 7yr loved the cozy loft immediately. They couldn't believe their eyes when they saw a little trunk tucked in a corner and just like "magic" found HARRY POTTER dvds inside! We are a huge Harry Potter family and were delighted to find this gem in the loft! Another treat was waking up early each morning, building a fire in the gorgeous outdoor stone fireplace and enjoying our morning coffee while watching the sunrise greet the day in peaceful silence. It was therapeutic and a welcome change from our hectic lives. The cabin was very comfortable and had plenty of room. The exposed wood work was gorgeous; VERY CLEAN. The only minor glitches we came across were several burned out light bulbs (no problem) and some areas that may need a bit of sprucing up - quite a few spider webs/dusty corners mostly outside on porch/deck. ; ) Rona had amazing advice for us regarding activities that were age-appropriate for our kids and she was spot on! Our first day we spent at Deep Creek tubing and hiking to beautiful water falls. Because our area has had a lack of rain, the river was quite low which caused getting stuck in rocks and boulders numerous times but nothing a few tugs or wiggles couldn't solve and certainly didn't impact our great fun! Another day we rented a pontoon boat to go exploring around Fontana Lake. Almond Boat Rental was fantastic and about 4 minutes from Sunali! We tried our hand at fishing and tubing off the back of the boat - great fun! We packed lunch, snacks and drinks for a fun day on the boat. Another day we went mountain biking along the Ocanaluftee River Trail in Cherokee. It was perfect! A great trail for our 7yr old daughter who has never been mountain biking, exciting enough for our 9yr old son and safe and fun enough for mom and dad! We did the trail twice for a total of 6 miles! We then explored the Cherokee Indian Village and loved watching the demonstrations of pottery, weaving, weapon making and more. It was very educational yet fun! We can't thank Rona enough for welcoming us into her home & allowing us to experience such a peaceful vacation with our children. We will definitely be back!"

  • Highly recommended

    "Stayed 6 nights and wish we had stayed longer. The views from the sunroom and back deck were fantastic; we spent most of our time (including every meal) in the sunroom, which has huge windows on 3 sides. We saw a wide variety of birds (including 14 species of warblers, hawks, ravens, orioles and many others); being able to see birds from ABOVE as they flew below us was really neat. Chipmunks and beautiful flowers in yard. The clarity of the stars at night was amazing - great view of the Milky Way, and saw many falling stars and satellites. Even with a new moon, the starlight was so bright that it never seemed fully dark at night. The cabin itself was just the right size, thoughtfully laid out, and uncluttered. Linens/towels were soft and clean, the down comforters were especially nice. I agree with the owner's suggestion to bring all the groceries you will want for your full stay - the one time that we went to Cherokee for supplies, we regretted the time 'missed' at the cabin. One of the most special things about the location was the peace and quiet - almost no signs or sounds of civilization. We found ourselves talking in hushed voices, even though we were all alone. We did not turn on the TV at all during our visit. With Verizon cell service, I could get/send emails/texts (but wished I hadn't), but could not get service for phone calls. I was able to get good radio reception of a public radio station in Tennessee, and listened to that while cooking (if you must keep up with the news). It was also really appreciated that we could bring our dog along. We plan to come back in different seasons - would be lovely in the spring and when the leaves are turning in the fall. Thanks Jim!!"
