Excellent Accomodations for a Peaceful Retreat

Review submitted: January 3, 2014   Date of arrival: December 29, 2013

Our group of 8 adults and 1 toddler stayed at this cabin for 3 nights for the 2013 New Year's Eve holiday. Before our arrival the owners had already set up a nice warm fire for us in the wood-burning stove inside of the great room! The cabin itself was very spacious with 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, each of which were updated and very clean. The entire cabin was beautifully crafted and kept in great condition. During the time we were there, we explored the property and trails around the cabin, which are extremely beautiful as the cabin is set right in front of a creek that winds through several small waterfalls. We also visited Asheville (~20 minutes away) and a nearby ski resort (Cataloochee, ~ 60 minutes away), which were both great and only a close distance away. We would definitely return to this location again!

Gorgeous home and even more beautiful surroundings!

Review submitted: December 2, 2013   Date of arrival: November 8, 2013

My family stayed at Laughing Waters for a fall vacation in the mountains. This home was even more beautiful than the pictures show: a breathtaking great room, meticulously clean bathrooms, and very comfortable beds. The views from the home's two decks are immense - the hills of Hickory Nut Gorge around you and the laughing creek waters beneath. We especially loved the huge fire pit beside the creek area. If you're up for some hiking, there are some challenging but well-worth-effort trails on the property. One leads to a fantastic swimming hole. It made me want to come back in summer when we could actually swim!

While staying here for the weekend, my family and I climbed Chimney Rock, took a boat out on Lake Lure, and picked apples. All these activities are only a few miles from the lodge.

The owners John and Jane are more than hospitable and accomodating. There was already a fire in the woodstove when we got there, and the kitchen is incredibly well-stocked. At the end of our stay, we accidentally left our laptop at the lodge. They overnighted it the next day, trusting that we'd send payment. Book now... you won't regret it!
