  • Authentic pioneer log cabin secluded in enchanted forest of 200 foot tall trees.

    "We thoroughly enjoyed the vacation we spent in Lazy Bear Lodge. This is a very special authentic pioneer log cabin completely secluded in an enchanted forest of 200 foot tall trees. The only person we saw in 11 days at the cabin was the gentleman who picked up the garbage. Yet the cabin is conveniently located in a charming neighborhood minutes from gas, groceries and downtown Sylva. We especially enjoyed drinking coffee on the front porch watching the morning fog while listening to the birds sing while the butterflies fluttered in the cool breezes. We loved the glow of the gas fireplace. The hot tub under the giant trees was phenomenal. We will treasure our memories forever of our special time in this storybook lodge."

  • Mountain Home Heaven

    "We stayed during the week of Christmas and were impressed with everything. The location is perfect, close to everything you may need (i.e. WalMart) and yet far enough away to not be bothered by anything! The sounds from the creek at the bottom of the hill elevated the tranquil atmosphere. Our (2) young sons enjoyed walking across the bridge to the small island. They said this was "nature at its' best!" We spent our lazy afternoons out on the porch/balcony playing cards/games and enjoyed the warmth from the fireplace. The house is fully stocked with essentials and then some. The manager, Kathy, is helpful beyond words. The owner and manager made themselves completely accessible and were eager to assist with any requests (we needed baking sheets to make cookies for Santa and they were on the counter when we arrived)! The home is spacious. The grounds plentiful and beautiful. We look forward to returning one day!"

  • Adorable old house

    "Cute renovated old house with large fenced yard. The house & location were great, a/c, appliances, wi-fi worked well. Loved the Smokehouse across the street. Got take out three times. Dog and I loved the front porch watching everything go by. Need to CAUTION anyone renting from VRBO that the house is not easily accessible to anyone not physically fit. Parking is way up on a hill necessitating a climb down stone & wooden steps to the house. Hubby is 80 & I am 73, needless to say it was difficult to get our things to and from the house. Owner uses a realtor whom we called for assistance however their machine stated that they were away for the weekend so we were left on our own."

  • Purple and Gold

    "We stayed at Bare Necessities the weekend of our son's graduation from Western Carolina University. The purple and gold colors of WCU were on display on campus and at sunset from the deck of Bare Necessities. You cannot capture the long-range views in a photo. We could still see the snow atop Clingman's Dome over 30 miles away. The hot tub was a welcome retreat after a couple of busy days packing up a moving van and attending the graduation festivities. The cabin comfortably slept 5 adults with an air mattress we took with us. The upstairs shower had a tough time keeping water pressure when someone was in the shower downstairs but we just staggered our bathroom visits to accommodate. There are so many outdoor activities in the surrounding area but my favorite was driving up Barker's Creek Rd, turning onto Beech Tree Rd and driving until it turns into a National Forestry dirt road. This drive is quintessential Western Carolina with family farms, mountain views and beautiful creeks. We fished for native trout in the middle fork of Barker's Creek and hardly noticed the hour that waned away in the middle of a hectic weekend. We can't wait to return in the fall."
