    The property was great. We definitely want to stay again. We are interested in going back with friends and rent more of the cabins in the spring.

    Exactly like it was listed. Very clean and was perfectly located in between Bryson City and Cherokee The only negatives were no tv in the bedroom and some road noise. ( We we’re in cabin #1).

  • Nice cabin for two


    Cabin was as described. Clean, neat and well kept inside and out. Our cabin was the closest to highway and road noise was hardly noticeable even during peak traffic. Very convenient to Bryson City and Cherokee Casino. Will stay here again in the future. We love the area.
