  • Dream come true booking


    This has got to be, by far, my favorite VRBO booking! This was nothing short than a dream come true. We got married at Nantahala Weddings and the location was PERFECT! The views this house offered were SPECTACULAR! We were greeted with a congratulatory bottle of wine and Ghirardelli chocolates. Along with souvenir coffee cups. Communication was easy and timely. 10/10 would definitely stay here again!

  • Stunning view and comfortable home


    Visited the area for a wedding down the street. Perfect home for the three couples /kids in the party.

    As the other reviews and the posting mentions, the drive may be intimidating for some. The road/gravel is well maintained but if you are a nervous driver it may not be for you. I would definitely not be comfortable driving in winter, but I’m from Florida.

    Closest grocery is 35 minutes and restaurant is 15 so plan ahead for meals.

  • Amazing views in a relaxing cabin in the woods aside of a mountain


    Loved the morning and evening, well all day view of this property. The fall colors (stayed mid to late Oct) were phenomenal, and there were a ton of hiking trails, a train ride, and waterfalls all around this area. We had a best friends family getaway here and it was perfect for reconnecting with our chosen family for us adults and the kids. The fire pit at night while watching the gorgeous stars all over the sky was one of our favorite features of this property. Sunset was also phenomenal. Our only issue was checking in as it’s very hard to see at night and we actually knocked on a neighbor’s door in the night because we couldn’t find the right driveway. I highly recommend arriving during the day as it’s a steep driveway and leads to three houses, but clearly marked in daylight hours. Also, finding the key box was hard in the dark. It’s at the bottom of the left staircase under the hand rail. Host was very helpful and didn’t realize the flood lights weren’t working correctly. She sent us helpful info and came out to help with an unexpected issue. She was very kind and helpful in many ways. Thank you!
