Recent Sylva reviews

  • Home away from home....

    "We recently rented Property #905475. We had a group who had all graduated from WCU and all went for homecoming. We were looking for a nice, cozy place with a nice outside area. The property was all that and a lot more. We had 6 of us all together and the place had more than enough room. The farm house was recently renovated with all the luxuries of a new home but still had a lot of character and charm of an old farm house. The outside area was great to gather outside and at night the view of the stars was amazing. The owner was very helpful before our stay and told us of a lot of neat local places just a few miles away. We used a local cab service, who was great, but the distance to the highway is only a mile or 2 so driving is not bad at all. Thanks so much for all your help and look forward to next year already!!"

  • Great view and nice location for day trips

    "This house really delivered. I was skeptical of the view, thinking there would be houses right on top of this place and they used some creative anglers for the pictures, but its very nice and private. There are a few homes on this mountain but you feel secluded.... we stayed in the winter time and it was still very private despite the leaves being off the trees. The location was great for us, took about an hour to get to Asheville and a little over an hour to drive to Gatlinburg (without stopping at any of the scenic overlooks through the national park). It was very surreal driving to Gatlinburg and seeing burned out houses/hotels on the way to Ober. Took us about 2.5 to reach the cabin from Atlanta, doing 80-90 the majority of the way. We used Waze to get to the antique store across from the turnoff to the cabin and the owner's instructions off the road. We had full Verizon service the whole time. The cabin is HUGE. Tons of room for a family reunion or group trip. The fireplace throws off a ton of heat... the upstairs loft can get very warm. It took a little playing around with the thermostat and fireplace to make sure the bedrooms were getting warm enough. The cabin has lots of extra blankets, towels, and pillows. The master bed was very comfortable. We did run out of hot water once or twice, so keep an eye on shower time if you have a lot of people getting ready at the same time. There are plenty of plates, utensils, pots/pans. The owners left us a package with a couple trash bags and some paper towels/TP. We ended up buying more bags at the supermarket. The local area in quaint. Sylva is a mill town, so is pretty blue collar and everyone I met was nice. The closest super market (Harold's) doesn't sell beer and wine, so we went to some of the local package stores and wine stores. I didn't realize til the trip was almost over that there is another super market on the other side of town with a big beer/wine selection (Food Lion). Kosta's restaurant in Dillsboro had some great lunch/breakfast options. The road leading up to the cabin is very tight with a bunch of switchbacks, so keep an eye out for pull off areas in case a car is coming from the other direction. I can imagine the road could be pretty tough in sleet/snow. I had to put our SUV into 4wd turning around on a steep part of the gravel driveway one time, so keep an eye on that. We were very happy with the cabin overall and plan to return again some day."

  • Fantastic Vacation

    "My family and I just returned from a fantastic stay at this cabin. I can't say enough good things about it. The view is AWESOME and the cabin was very clean and comfortable. We especially loved the game room downstairs with the pool table. We enjoyed how close the cabin was to town (less than 5 minutes to Dillsboro) but how you still felt away from it all. We hope to return soon. Thank you for sharing your piece of heaven in the mountains with us!"
