    Was an awesome house with a beautiful deck! Not too far from the tail of the dragon. Would recommend updating the listing to detail how to exit the property. Definitely not fun if you have to run out right before or after dark.

    Beautiful virws, loved the deck. Convenient to Bryson City. Would love to come again. Only issue was parking in driveway. One car was large, other was small manual car. Had issues backing up driveway.

  • Nice cabin in Robbinsnville NC


    First the good. The cabin is well maintained, clean, has great views, and the deck was really nice with comfortable furniture. The bed in the master bedroom was above average comfortable. The owner was responsive when I had questions.The management company, Evolve... May not exist? Or maybe there just aren't humans employed there. I got some automated emails, one of which directed me to contact them to pay the pet fee. Their website offers no contact details. Their "contact us" URL redirects to their FAQ. I tried responding to the booking confirmation email, and got an automatic reply stating the inbox isn't monitored, directing me to their "contact us" page (see above). Their advertising claims they offer 24/7 guest support. I would complain it's false advertising but who would I complain to? I made every reasonable attempt to contact them, and waited 48 hours for a response. From my perspective they do not exist except as a website that presumably claimed a portion of my booking fee.Like I said above, the place was really nice and the owner was responsive. My only complaint about the actual property itself is it's about 15 minutes further from Bryson and Cherokee than the location indicated in Vrbo (Almond NC).

  • Excellent secluded hideaway


    This cabin definitely lived up to the expectations. We were extremely comfortable and well-provisioned for our week on the NC/TN mountains. The bedrooms were comfortable, the kitchen well-equipped, and the wifi was surprisingly good for being out in the middle of nowhere (the teenagers really appreciated this). The driveway was definitely a challenge the first time but easy peasy after that; narrow but not difficult to navigate. The secluded gravel roads around the community were excellent for walking our dogs. Would definitely recommend with the caveat that you should be careful if you have a lowered car - the driveway isn’t ideal for very low vehicles.
