  • Beautiful view and cabin!

    "The cabin and view was absolutely beautiful! Close to plenty of attractions, we did a lot in Cherokee and Asheville. The initial drive up the mountain was a little hairy but after the second time we had it under control. Would definitely recommend arriving during daylight if you are not used to mountain driving. Owners are very kind and responsive. We had a wonderful and relaxing week!"

  • Rustic luxury, relaxing, spacious!

    "Our annual family summer gatherings bring 11 very different people together, and it can be a challenge finding just the right property, especially when booking a new area for the first time. This was my year to find "The House," and after painfully scouring the vacation rental websites for hours (can I get a witness???) for something that would satisfy all 11 budgets and tastes, it was a favorable East Fork Ranch (EFR) verdict. As we drove into the Cruso/Canton area from Charlotte, under the mist of the beautiful smoky mountains, my anxiety gradually dissipated with each lush, green mile. It is truly a beautiful place! Yet as we approached the Pigeon River bridge and East Fork Ranch sign, I admit I had one eye closed and squinted warily through the other down the winding drive. I was still slightly nervous both about the property and the area, as we weren't very familiar with this part of NC. Much to my relief, the greeting of wide, green pastures and rustic barns, rushing creeks and ponds full of hungry fish made everyone giddy! So, the only thing to either seal the deal or nail the coffin was The House. Suffice it to say, we couldn't have been happier with our choice. From the outside deck (which we spent most of our time on), to the huge stone fireplace in the living room (and even in late May was well-used), we had plenty of room to spread out or hang out. And the four kids LOVED the room with the bunk beds! It proved the perfect bunker for dark, downtime watching movies together during the rainy spells - speaking of rain, even it seemed prettier in this setting. The kitchen had everything we could have needed, and then some. We have never been to a vacation rental that had a proper egg poacher! The rest of the home was carefully thought out, and we appreciated the attention to detail. Decor was tasteful, and activities abundant - the pool table and dartboard saw a lot of action! Whether walking out the back door to a vigorous hike or out the front to the fire pit and fishing by the pond, there was something for everyone. Asheville is close enough to visit once, and Waynesville is even closer and charming enough to visit several times. We were all pleasantly surprised by the neighboring towns and the abundance of interesting and cool things to do - don't miss white water rafting on the French Broad or breakfast at The Buttered Biscuit. Thank you to Neda for always being available for questions. We will definitely be back!"

  • Goldilocks would love it!

    "This is a truly lovely setting & it was a joy to breakfast on one of the three porches each morning (I prefer the one with rocking chairs), admiring the trees & listening to the brook down in the ravine--which is actually loud enough I could hear it over my tinnitus going to sleep.* Another nice thing is that a dog can be confined on the front porch as well as in the yard, and ours really enjoyed spending time there. The cottage is convenient to Brevard (good restaurants, great gallery shops) and the Pisgah National Forest (with waterfalls!), and the ride into town is lovely too. We expected to be isolated in the wilderness, so to speak, but other cottages are scattered up and down the wooded hill (not too close). The amenities are fine--the shower is great & safe though it's awkward to have a bathroom opening onto the living room--and the hot water and towels plentiful. Kitchen is tight but functions well; plenty of dishes & cookware. Bears are everywhere--carved, photographed, everything but live. *The one problem for me--my daughter and son-in-law had the master bedroom--was the single bed with the delightful bear posts; it's picturesque but the mattress isn't good enough for an elderly person with a bad back. If we were to return--and we'll certainly be tempted!--I'd either have to get a "Travel Ewe" pad or be assured you'd acquired a pillow top if not a whole new mattress. I think it's all right for the young. A little table on the door side of the bed and a rocking chair or small armchair would also be useful additions to that room. All in all, though, I certainly give it a five-star recommendation."
