Recent Sylva reviews

  • 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."

  • Beautiful home with comfortable furnishings and spectacular views!

    "Spent a long weekend here with our adult children and two beautiful toddler grand kids. We enjoyed relaxing in the spacious living spaces and getting rocked by our not yet two year old granddaughter on the swing on the grand deck. I will treasure the video of her singing rock-a-bye baby while rocking herself in the giant rocking chair! Our three year old grandson appreciated the whole family being together, but missed his dinosaurs. He did like walking under the waterfall (Dry Falls) with his Daddy, had a ball riding the pint-sized rides at Santa's Land, and really enjoyed laying on the oversized bean bag lounger with Dad while watching movies. I'd recommend this home for anyone who appreciates grand living spaces and gorgeous Mountain views."
