    This home was almost perfect in every way! Well equipped. Comfortable. Beautifully decorated. The *best* views and accessibility of the river. Comfy beds. Close to town, but far enough out that everything feels secluded and tranquil. There is enough to do at the cabin to keep you entertained during your stay. I really could go on and on. The communication with the proper manager was excellent. My quibbles were so minor that they don't even feel worth mentioning. It's a beautiful home, on a beautiful property, in beautiful Hayesville. We will definitely return!

  • A week of fun!


    We had had a wonderful stay and we were perfectly comfortable with 2 couples and three children. The property is beautiful and so very clean! In a wonderful location (close to SO MUCH) right on the water.

    NOTE: If you have small children, please be aware of the rising water on the river when the water is released from the dam! Once it’s released, typically takes about 5 hours to get to the house. The water becomes high and very swift. Just be aware!

    P.S. I do agree the downstairs King bed mattress needs to be “updated”. Not the most comfortable BUT also not the worst!

    Overall, a fantastic experience and we would definitely return!
