  • Everything you could possibly want or need!!

    "We just returned from a delightful, restful 4 nights at Pine Tops. First of all, the cabin is adorable--it truly exudes charm, comfort, and love. You can't help but feel "at home". It was the most well equipped cabin we've ever stayed in, even including baskets of toilet paper and soap so we didn't have to run out and buy a bunch of supplies, which we appreciated arriving as late as we did. The cabin is in an incredible setting that pictures cannot do justice--you literally feel like you are in a fairy treehouse. Every direction you look out, all you see are trees and rhododendron. There is plenty of seating in the large living room , lovely deck, huge screened in porch, with dining areas in both large living spaces. The bedrooms include plenty of hooks and drawer space and the bedding is gorgeous. The art creates a welcoming environment. All 3 bathrooms are well equipped with plenty of supplies, towels, drawers and hooks. The decorations don't come across as clutter but contribute to telling the "story" of the owner and cabin, which you will very much appreciate. We are middle aged grownups but decided we wished the owner would adopt us!! There are numerous darling touches, such as a tiny little table for children, with accompanying small wooden chairs in red, green, and yellow. Plenty of candles and matches in case the power goes out which it never did--but still, just one more indication that the owner has literally thought of everything you could possibly need. We enjoyed the coffee table books and interesting reading material scattered throughout the home. Another aspect we enjoyed and which helped make the home so enjoyable and relaxing was little touches like always having appropriate lamps in each spot, and no matter where one is sitting, there's a nearby table or stool on which to rest your book and cup of coffee. There seemed to be a bunch of TVs, which we never watched, but we did enjoy listening to music on the stereo. I'm a hotnatured person and was concerned about the lack of central air in humid August, but it was not a problem. The air is cool and circulates well with all the screened doors; and if needed, you can turn on all 3 bathroom a/c units and let them run which does cool things off. Location so quiet, yet, just minutes from town! Last, the high quality and precious nature of many of the items in the cabin indicated a respect for the guests--a desire to share lovely things to evoke delight."

  • Beautiful !

    "The pictures on google map captured the image of the cabin, but did not capture the beauty, the trees, the stars at night, the firefly, the quietness of the night, the feeling of solitude, we loved the cabin ! A big plus was the fact its in the town of Maggie Valley ! I would assume that for the location alone, the price would be costly, but what a bargain ! The cabin had everything you needed, and was not lacking in anything we could see. Everything I had read about this cabin was as advertised, it was clean and had plenty of towels, fresh sheets, even had laundry detergent on hand ! My wife liked that as she had some clothes to wash and did not want to go shopping the first day. The cabin was clean, floors swept and mopped, it was simply a pleasure to stay. What you really will like, it is accessible to Maggie Valley restaurants in minutes. We ate at Joey's Pancake House for breakfast, they where celebrating 50 years in business and once you eat there you will understand why. I liked the attached garage to park the Harley's, and to access the surrounding areas to ride was a breeze, minutes away from the Blue Ridge Parkway, Mt. Pisgash, the wives loved going to the Biltmore House. I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone reading this review. In fact, we are thinking of returning in the fall, and we will rent this cabin again if it's available ! Next year we are planning another summer visit, and I hope the cabin will be available ! Thanks Ms. Dawn for some great memories !!"

  • Fantastic Lake Fantastic House

    "What a wonderful way to spend a week. The house is perfect.Very well designed with quiet private room for the grandparents, lovely bedroom with screened in porch for the newly weds and family rooms for the parents with two children. Everyone had their own space. The kitchen has plenty of everything-pots, pans,dishwasher,sets of dishes. Plenty of water toys for everyone. The lake is beautiful and tranquil. Even over Memorial Day weekend it was peaceful in our cove. A must is to rent the boats from the neighbor Jim. He knows all the history of the area and checks on you for any boat needs. The boys went fishing with him one morning and had a great time. The Owner is extremely helpful and left no questions unanswered. His welcome packet covers everything you could imagine with helpful hints. We hiked in Smokey Mountains every other day and spend time on the lake the others. A must if you are there the first of June is the Synchronized Firefly in Joyce Kilmer Forest a short distance away. Thank you for sharing your home."

  • Relaxing seclusion

    "Being right on the lake, but in an alcove away from the marina/boat ramps, made it a very pleasant location. The house was mostly clean and had sufficient windows to ensure lights were only needed at night, yet had sufficient trees to prevent it from becoming an oven in the warmer part of the day. Planning your food is key, as is communication, as there are no grocers nearby (as stated by the owner...thanks) and the wifi...well, the wifi doesn't really exist. Lakes End Marina Cafe has great wifi, so not sure why the house didn't? The waterfalls nearby on the lake, which directions are left in the notebook by the owner, were a restful and beautiful spot to kayak/boat. Fishing the lake was a learning experience, but no trout/salmon this trip, only small mouth bass, perch, and blue gill...all of them fun to catch. We had no neighbors present until the last night, making it a bit of silence my family welcomed as respite from work/school. Close enough to Cherokee/Bryson City to have some alternate activities, but far enough away that the 'touristy' feel was completely non-existent. The pool/air hockey/ping pong table was a surprise in that usually this combo is a smallish version, but this was full-size ping pong and mid-size pool...very fun. Highly recommend for a peaceful visit with fun water activity (we rented a pontoon/tube and had a riot). Also recommend the owner update the wifi, as most people these days are using it for most of their activity planning and communication. Overall, we would definitely stay again! BTW, instructions say no coffee grinder and I took whole beans...YES, there IS a coffee grinder (we're coffee snobs)! And take your boat if you have one! The kayaks and canoe are nice and being able to tie off the personal boat is a real bonus."
