  • The best cabin we have stayed in by a mile!

    "Misty Laurel Chalet is an absolute gem and was the perfect place to spend our 15 day Christmas holiday vacation. Not only did Misty Laurel exceed all our expectations but the owner, Pat, exceeded them too in every possible way. I honestly could not imagine a more helpful or accommodating person, which is a huge comfort when planning a big vacation like this. He ensured our every need, question, desire was met...sometimes before we had even thought of them! It was great that we also got to meet him at Thanksgiving while we were in his hometown for a family gathering. A genuinely great guy! The location of Misty Laurel Chalet was perfect for us. Secluded but not completely remote. There are some other houses in the area but none were intrusive and the other owners we spoke to were very inviting. One even brought us a bottle of wine to enjoy over Christmas! The view was perfect overlooking the mountains and lake below through the massive windows running the length (and height) of the living and dining area. My parents, who enjoyed the loft sleeping area, loved waking up to that view each morning. Andrews was the closest town for groceries and was a 15 to 20 minute journey along some good roads. Franklin was slightly further and along the very bendy Wayah Rd. which take a little longer but has more to offer. We had three couples staying at Misty Laurel for a short time and not once did we feel like we were tripping over one another or in each others space. There was loads of room and the three fully equipped bathrooms helped a lot. The cabin had all the utensils and appliances we needed to comfortably cook at home with ease and there were plenty of starter items like dishwasher tablets, laundry soap, and hand wash. Just bring food and you will be good to go for a few days until you explore. We enjoyed several wonderful walks in the area as well as some further afield. If you enjoy geocaching there are many to choose from. The Appalachian Trail passes nearby. The Bartrum trail is even closer. For those with reduced mobility take a drive up to Wayah Bald Tower and you will be treated to magnificent mountain-top views with very little effort. I could go on but honestly you just need to book this place up and go try it yourself. If you like a place right in or very close to town it may not be for you, but if you want a great location, a great cabin, peace and quiet with wonderful views, and an awesome owner to look out for you the Misty Laurel is for you."

  • The cabin was nice with some good views.

    "The cabin was nice and fun to get away for awhile. Due to our timing of our trip and the weather we couldn't get the whole experience, so if I were to go again I would chose a warmer time of the year. There were times where the warm water would cut off and there was only cold water left in the showers random parts of the day and the wifi went in and out a lot. Other than that it was a good experience."

  • Tooth Fairy Mountain Fantasy

    "My family of 5 booked this exquisite cabin to enjoy as a last "hooray" before the school rush started. This was EXACTLY what we all needed to unwind! My husband and I needed an escape with the kids to relax and enjoy complete serenity with the family without cellphones/computers/tablets and decisions to be made. We have vacationed in Nantahala for 15+ years, but this property exceeded our expectations from prior rentals on VRBO. The view from all 3 decks are fantastic! I love, love, love ALL the details in every nook! The plush linens and bedding were so supple! It was literally home away from home. The kayaks and canoe were SO much appreciated and enjoyed! My kids and I spent hours on the lake exploring and we had a thrill of victory when we finally found the " hidden waterfall of NANTAHALA ". We spent HOURS playing Monopoly! (a board game without a plug!) THE VERY BEST was when Lisa actually mailed back my little boy's tooth, which he lost during our stay, with a signed letter from the Tooth Fairy, with PAYMENT included! SO MUCH APPRECIATED! I RECOMMEND THIS cabin for anyone who wants a HOME, not just a place to sleep!! Thank you so MUCH Lisa and Jerry! We'll be back!"

  • Awesome and even better then the photos!

    "We really loved the home and it was very comfortable for the 8 of us. We used the outdoor porches more then the inside of the house, even the kids loved sleeping on out on the upper deck. The lake is awesome and for some of us with some disability in walking up and down hills and tons of stairs, this home had great and easy access to the water with a wonderfully large dock and the boat was an AWESOME PLUS!!! Can't wait to go back! (June 2015 for a week)"
