"Us two couples, stepbrothers with wives, came to this beauty and had a great time. We were met by Neda, who immediately made us feel at home and welcome. The house is sparkling clean and the beds were comfortable with wonderful linens. The bathroom and towels were also high quality. The kitchen was also lovely, with plenty of plates, cups, silverware and cookware. The coffeemaker was a quality one, too. We set on the porch nightly, and spent 2 nights at the fire ring by the swim lake, and it was so pretty it was like a dream. The other nights, we built a fire in the open fireplace. Neda and her husband re-supplied all the wood, blew leaves and visited with our brother when he caught 2 fish-- which we ate! Yummy, too.
What is unique for the area is its location and the bedrooms. I had looked really hard for suite bedrooms, queens at least, with separate bathrooms. This was wonderful. The twin bunks in the loft were cute, great quality mattresses, and had a toilet/sink. We didn't really use this, but it would be great for kids. But the bedrooms were fine. The location is very central to vista driving. The Parkway is only 6 miles away, and the grocery stores in Canton, and the restaurants in Waynesville were not too far. Try Maggies for seafood, it was amazing. Asheville with the Biltmore, beer, and attractions was easy to get to. But it was a drive, not a walk, so be aware you are not next door to a city. But who cares, we cooked, we laughed, we played, and we ate in most days.
The only minus's were that the shower heads had a little age, and were not great, but had plenty of hot water. Also it is closer to the other cabins on the property, but everyone shared well. So I kinda had to dig to find a minus, but that lets you know that it was really very nice. But I hope every home away has a host like Neda, and wonderful owners who obviously care for their guests. Maybe we will be back, and if we do, it would be here."
