We are two professional couples with high stress occupations who are continually looking for a "get away weekend". What caught my eye as I looked for a North Carolina rental was a photo of the porch with a beautiful sunset view - and in real life it was even better! Sitting and sipping wine or tea on the porch with a sunset view of the Smoky Mountains was the best stress reliever we could have asked for! My husband particularly loved the hummingbirds darting in and out of the flowers! We spent a day driving through Smoky Mountain National Park and a day of tubing down Deep Creek (we're not kids but sure felt like one that day!)
We didn't get a chance to whitewater raft, but next time (and there WILL be a next time) we will take advantage of the owner's expertise in giving us tips as he is an experienced white water guide! By the way, he is really great to work with, even with our crazy schedules.
I would definitely recommend this comfortable cabin to couples traveling together, or a family for great vacation.
