Perfect base for a Panthertown adventure

Review submitted: December 1, 2013   Date of arrival: October 13, 2013

We loved staying in the Cat's Eye cottage. Unlike many properties in the area, this one is unpretentious and reasonably priced, and with an amazing location! In short, it was exactly what we wanted—a home base for a group of outdoors-lovers to explore the Panthertown Valley, right outside the door. The home and furnishings are modest but everything worked fine and we were quite comfortable. We enjoyed the outdoor grill, indoor fireplace, hot shower, cozy living room, and pleasant view of Panthertown from the porch.

One thing to note—the owners allow pets and thus the place smells a bit like dog (one of our group had mild allergies and had just a bit of discomfort with that on arrival.) Also, there is no wi-fi.

Perfect getaway

Review submitted: November 11, 2012   Date of arrival: October 18, 2012

The Cat's Eye Mountain cottage is the perfect getaway while feeling right at home! We were fortunate to stay at the cottage during peak leaf season and the views were spectacular! Surrounded by woods and mountains on all sides and awesome stargazing at night.
The cottage was clean, comfortable and cozy but you'll probably spend most of your time out on the huge deck just taking in the views!
There are many beautiful waterfalls in the area for just a short drive with fantastic scenery along the way. There is a nature walk right at the end of the road.
Whether you enjoy hiking, sightseeing, fishing on the property pond, biking or just plain relaxing this is the ideal place to stay.
We had a wonderful time and plan on returning next year.
BTW...The county was dry but in July 2012 they elected to allow alcoholic beverage sales. Also there is an Ingles grocery store close by with a fantasic selection of anything you need.
Thanks again for a great vacation!
Gene and Barbara

The place to stay for hiking in Panthertown

Review submitted: September 12, 2012   Date of arrival: July 28, 2012

This was our second year at Cat's Eye, and we plan to go again in 2013. You really can't beat the location for access to Panthertown Valley. For two weeks we use the car only if we need to run into town. Very comfortable accommodations and a fabulous view of the valley from the front porch. A wonderful place to gather with family and friends!!!
