  • 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."

  • Beautiful home with loads of privacy!

    "We had a great time at this beautiful mountain home! Bruce was wonderful to work with - very responsive and informative. The home itself was welcoming and grand at the same time. The screened in porch with outdoor fireplace, seating area and dining table was fabulous. We spent a lot of time out there enjoying the nice breezes and wonderful view. Making s'mores in the evening was a treat. The home was well appointed and decorated with tasteful artwork and furniture, while still feeling very comfortable. The master suite was huge! Plenty of room to relax. It was nice to have bathrooms for every bedroom. Everyone had their own space in the house, while still enjoying the common areas together. The sun greeted us every morning through the large back windows of the house - no window treatments on them brought the outdoors inside, which was a nice touch. Michael at the Nature Center on property was awesome! He spent time educating us about snakes and other local "neighbors" - he even gave us a mini birds of prey encounter with one of the hawks at the center. Hope, the bald eagle, was also amazing. Highly suggest stopping in to check it out. We also ventured to the Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC) for flat water kayaking - approx. 35 minutes from the front gates. Mike was our guide and he was excellent. Highly recommend going there, if only to people watch. Walked around downtown Sylva - some cute shops and cafes. Just remember that small downtown area shops close early, so give yourself enough time to explore. Overall, we had a great mountain vacation! I would recommend this house to anyone looking to get away from it all, while still having ammenities not far away."

  • The property was beautiful but it was very remote.

    "The house was beautiful and surrounding hillside lovely. At night sitting in rocking chair on front porch was so peaceful. Saw a couple wild turkey and big owl. The property was more remote than realized and tucked back into the hills. It was a reasonable drive time to the areas we wanted to visit. Would consider staying again should we go back to that area."

  • 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."
