  • 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."

  • 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!"

  • 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."
