  • Sweet little cottage!


    We had a very nice time. Cottage was neat, clean and fully stocked with all necessities. Very cute! Our intent was to visit with aging family and enjoy our 40th anniversary in a nice quiet mountain house on the river. As sweet as the cottage is ... it does not sit directly on the river. The road between the house and the river is kind of busy... so quiet is was not. Wasn’t exactly what we had hoped but we still enjoyed the house, sitting on the porch and visiting with family. Thank you to the owners for sharing their mountain retreat!

  • Sweet little place.


    We were primarily in the area to help with aging family members but was celebrating our 40th anniversary in the process. Hoping to have a quiet mountain cottage on the river to relax while at the cottage. As cute as it is ... quite it is not. Fairly heavy traffic and house was across the street from the fiver. Needless to say we were a little disappointed. Still in all we had a very nice time. Again, cottage is very cool and we may stay there again at some point time.

  • Cullowee cabin


    The cabin was clean, comfortable and well stocked.

    There are a few things to clarify. The river is located down a steep drive and across a busy (loud) road. The deck pictured is very unlevel. It appears to have shifted in the current. It looks precarious. And if you want to use the chairs pictured, you will need to bring them down from the cabin. The bank of the river is steep, so if you plan to wade and fish, you have to locate access elsewhere.

    The cabin is on a steep hill/mountain side. There was no cell phone service. The internet is a portable hotspot that did not provide enough wifi signal to run television. And there is no antenna for local channels. Also, there is no land phone line. The love seat on the porch is broken and on the verge of collapse. It should be removed.

    If you are ok with isolation, this won't be an issue.

    However I was in the area to drop off my daughter at WCU. So, I needed communication.

    Wish them the best, however this will be my only stay.
