  • Great place to stay

    "My family stayed at this cabin for 3 nights. It was very clean and had everything we needed. My children enjoyed walking all around the cabin looking at all the art work the owner had done. This added so much charm to the cabin! We enjoyed sitting on the porch and just enjoying the nature around us. We had some friends stay with us one of the nights and it held all 10 of us very comfortably! I would definitely stay here again. It was in very reasonable driving distance to waterfalls, Tubing/ whitewater rafting, shopping and restaurants. It will not disappoint! So much better than a hotel. The owner's hospitality was wonderful! We felt very welcome!"

  • 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!"

  • Beautiful view!

    "It was like an instant deep breath to cleanse the soul. This place was perfect. Our only complaint was that we didn't have more time. Water pressure was a little low at times, but I would guess that's just part of being in the mountains. Everything was very clean and in great shape. Highly recommend."

  • 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."
