My sister ,daughter ,niece and myself included enjoyed this lovely home. It was very clean. We would love to go back.
My (now) husband and I stayed here with a few family members for a week in April. We wanted a quiet and peaceful location for our wedding/elopement and the owner, Jeff H, allowed us to use his cabin for the venue! We are so glad we chose this cabin!
The rooms comfortably slept our 9 people and 3 dogs. Because there were three levels, no one felt cramped on top of each other. Also, it was more than we could have asked for in terms of seclusion and natural beauty. Not to mention, the photos do not give the interior of the cabin justice: it is much nicer and spacious than it appears from the images.
The kitchen was fully equipped and allowed plenty of space to move about when multiple people were wandering about: there was even an espresso maker... which I will say was used quite a bit!
The fire pit in the backyard was very relaxing and perfect for s'mores! You can hear the gentle sound of the river in the background and enjoy the beautiful views of the trees and flowers surrounding the yard. (The flower blossoms were beautiful since it was springtime!)
Because it was April and the water was still a bit chilly. We did not get the opportunity to use the water tubes to float to the cabin, but I look forward to this in future stays!
All of the boys couldn't stay away from the ping pong table in the garage! Plus, the entertainment system in the living area was very modern. The internet was plenty fast enough for multiple users/devices and we had no lagging issues (even while playing online multiplayer games).
The location was perfect in terms of feeling distant from reality; however, it was only 5 minutes to the nearest Ingles grocery store or Dollar General if you needed anything.
**TIP: The gravel road leading to the cabin can be rough on the paint and undercarriage of a small car. I would recommend traveling in an SUV or other vehicle that is higher off of the ground.
CONS (although I wouldn't really call them that):
There were a few small damages that were present upon arrival (such as a peeling portion of the sectional and a broken plank on one of the rocking chairs outside) but these did not distract from the appeal and beauty of the cabin. One set of the outside doors was extremely difficult latch and did not lock well along with some of the bathroom locks not working properly.
The only real complaint I could have (if you want to call it that) is the stairway down to the river. It was nearly 200 steps to the bottom (which wasn't too difficult) but the climb back up was extremely exhausting! (I don't recommend climbing the stairs to anyone with back pain troubles.) I was expecting the path to be a bit shorter; however, the view from the bottom was definitely worth the climb. There was a beautiful large rock slab to stand on at the bottom and you could see fish swimming past in the deeper areas. (BTW... Our puppy dog loved it down there!) The water was clear and the vegetation on the banks was clean and beautiful.
The location, modern yet classy beauty, spaciousness, and views made our getaway and wedding day perfect! We could not have asked for a better location. The owner, Jeff, was also very friendly and responded to any emails in a timely manner.
It was a very memorable experience and I can't wait for our future stays here! (But maybe next time in the summer so we can enjoy the water more...)
Had everything we could ask for out of a rental: fully stocked kitchen, kid and dog friendly, close location to everything, beautiful views.
We stayed at this beautiful cabin after Christmas and into the New Year and it was such an amazing experience, we hiked many trails around the area, we visited Chimney Rock and the Biltmore Estate and enjoyed the cabin fully! The views were breath-taking from the house and both decks and we had everything that we needed and more! Jeff was super attentive and everything was perfect when we arrived.
The cabin was clean and spacious. It is perfect for a large family or group. We enjoyed the fire pit and fire place which was stocked with plenty of wood. The entire family loved this place and are planning to return during the summer to enjoy the river activities.
