  • Always a Pleasure to Stay at Forest Fantasy: Smoky Mtn Escape


    I've stayed here numerous times in the past with my dog, Duke, and always enjoy our stay. Michael & Randy are great Hosts and ensure you have everything you need. The property is very large so plenty of room to roam about. There is a nice stream-fed pond that they stocked with fish and you'll see Randy out there feeding the fish once he's finished feeding the goats (in the barn area). There is also a firepit that I use at night if I'm not too exhausted from the day hikes I take my dog on. The town of Murphy is close by so I venture there in the morning to eat digs with the locals at my favorite breakfast place. There is so much to do in the area if you like the great outdoors - hiking, fishing, sightseeing, camping, riding bikes and motorcycles, etc. I love the windy roads in the area and there are plenty. The cabin is somewhat petite but has everything I need - bed, shower, kitchen area, even a small TV with internet access. The bathroom is great too - the shower is somewhat small but perfect for me. Overall, I love this place - it's so peaceful, hidden, beautiful, and has everything we need. The Hosts are fantastic too!

    Super cute property, in reality it was same as it was portrayed on the web site. Owners were gracious and friendly yet provided privacy. Highly recommend.

  • Beautiful setting and comfortable cabin


    Loved the setting. Watching the deer in the pasture morning and evening was a highlight. And the goats were fun to watch. Michael and Randy were very nice and welcoming hosts.
