  • Perfect for a family; Clean and Friendly

    "This cottage was absolutely perfect! I will recommend it to all of my friends and family and fully intend to return to the area and I would not consider staying anywhere else. Our vacation consisted of a road trip from FL and we used this as a home base. We saw Charlestown, SC the first day, arriving late at the cottage where the owners had everything warm and ready for us. The next day we went into town, after a great recommendation from the owners for a place to have breakfast, and then did some local gem mining. With daylight left, we decided to drive to see Craggy Gardens north of Asheville - an amazing view of the Smokey Mountains and a beautiful, scenic drive. Once again we got home too late to utilize the full kitchen, but were uber grateful for the really (REALLY) comfortable beds! The next day we went to TN, Ruby Falls in Chattanooga, driving through two National Forests and passing the most beautiful river and white water rapids! Small children, long car rides, my daughter's special blanket got covered in chocolate milk - it was so nice to go "home" and find the pantry stocked with laundry detergent and we were able to wash and dry all the laundry of 2 small children. On a side note, also about children, the mine right behind the cottage - across the highway - was perfect! They let us set up a play-yard for the littlest one right at the flume and let my daughter play all over the property when she was tired of mining, but we weren't done. So this cottage is very convenient to that activity. Maybe a 5 minute drive all said and done, if that. Last day we put the furniture back to where it was supposed to be, returned all of the cute decor I didn't want my daughter to break, and headed out. To be honest, I wish we had more time. The cottage had great hot water, an abundance of towels, dishes, pots and pans, a fun layout and upstairs a twin as well as queen bed... so it actually did sleep a full 5 people. Oh and the meadow behind it was huge and a great place for kids to run. Honestly I would never consider another place. I looked at a lot of cottages and this was the only one that seemed to have easy access, paved roads, but still had a view and a secluded (but not too secluded) feel. The privacy of the loft bedroom will be nice when we come back. And plenty of room for play yards to be set up as cribs if you need them (but bring them-none there.. and actually I think that's better anyway). Gas heat worked well. I'm out of room! I could go on.."

  • Relaxing atmosphere, great views and close to lots of things to do!

    "We just returned from a week in the cabin and was more than pleased with everything. The photos on the website are just what you see when you arrive. The cabin is comfortable, clean, well maintained and everything you needed was there and ready. Sunsets are outstanding and the mountain views couldn't be better from the back deck. The cabin is convenient to everything in the area. We visited Biltmore Estates in Ashville, took a ride on the Great Smokey Mountain Railroad in Bryson City, visited a few sites in the Great Smokey Mountain National Park, spent time in Cherokee at the Cherokee Indian Museum and Village, did a little gem mining and spent time enjoying the river and area around the Nantahala Outdoor Center. There was more to do, but we also enjoyed spending quiet time at the cabin enjoying the views and nature around us. We even watched from the rear deck as both deer and lots of wild turkey strolled through the back yard. Some of the trees started changing color and we could see fall coming with the red, orange and yellow colors scattered throughout the mountains while we drove around. The only negative in our time there was that the weather was still warmer than we had hoped, which unfortunately was out of Dawn's and Bob's control or else I'm sure they would have sent us that cooler weather we wanted! Overall we had a great time in a very nice cabin and we can certainly recommend it to everyone."

  • Mountain Paradise

    "The gentle wind whispers through the mighty hemlocks...the cheerful birds flit amongst the ivy vines...the crystal water makes its lovely music as it twists and falls across the sturdy mountain rocks...it is truly a beautiful day on Walnut Creek Road...! We loved every minute that we spent at this well-appointed, clean cabin nestled beside a breath-taking waterfall. The trail to the top of the falls is easy and enjoyable due to the wide, deck steps. It is a perfect place to relax and appreciate the beauty of the mountains."
