  • Best cabin ever!


    Best cabin ever. Hosts are kind, engaged, and very welcoming. Accommodations are very comfortable and pristine. There is no better view off the deck or out the bedroom window. If you can't find what you need here, you don't need it.

    Manager's Response:

    From the owner: "So wonderful when guests enjoy Turning Point to its fullest! Thank you for loving our cabin and surroundings of western NC as much as we do! Come on back soon, you all!"

  • Mountain family retreat


    We thoroughly enjoyed this cozy cabin up in the mountains near Maggie Valley! It was more than large enough for our family of 5 (two adults, kids ages 6, 9, 11) and the cabin was VERY well decked out for family fun with tons of games, books and two tvs (set up for streaming) in different parts of the cabin. The cabin itself was spotless when we checked in; the kitchen was the best stocked rental house we’ve EVER stayed in, and the views from the porch while quietly sipping my morning coffee couldn’t be beat! I only wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the cabin to its fullest- it is almost a destination for relaxation in and of itself!

  • Majestic! Fantastic (understatement!) cabin with adventures nearby!


    From the moment we walked in the door seeing the whimsical mud room and an amazing country kitchen around the bend, we were in love with Turning Point! The views are breathtaking. Morning coffee on the covered porch. Wine and cheese on the lower deck spilling over to the fire pit area. Games and puzzles on the massive great room table. Comfy beds and incredible bathrooms - one with a window IN the shower! Details, details, delightful details. The Maggie Valley area near Waynesville has such terrific eateries, breweries, hikes, waterfalls, shops andddd many great locations to enjoy sunsets! The Blue Ridge Parkway is very accessible. The sunrises were spectacular from the loft and the covered porch of Turning Point. We will be back!

  • Lovely spot


    Very thoughtfully appointed cabin with a beautiful and very quiet mountain setting. The foliage was gorgeous! The kitchen is very well equipped for cooking, the bed was super comfy, and the hosts were responsive and very helpful!

  • Loved it!


    Turning Point cabin was the perfect place to unplug for a long weekend. What struck us - besides the beautiful sunrises on the porch - was how clean everything appeared. No dust accumulated on items and the home had a welcoming feel. We also appreciated the surround sound and outdoor speakers, as we're big music fans. If you're there to hike, you'll have to drive a bit to get to the trails but if you're looking for seclusion and peace, too, this is it!

    Thank you, Deb, for being a truly wonderful host. If it wasn't such a long drive from our NC coast we'd be back on a regular basis :)
