Best Cabin to end 2019!!! ❤
We had an amazing week stay and couldn't have found a nicer Cabin to end 2019. The cabin is very clean and can comfortably accommodate 8 people with plenty of space and privacy. If you are looking for peace and tranquility with wholesome family time, this cabin is for you. Tom was very attentive to our needs and offered plenty of area recommendations. The nearby creek is worth the short hike. Hiwassee Dam is worth the drive as well as Fields of the Wood. If you like apples, you will love Panorama Orchards , you must buy their Apricot Ginger Teriyaki Glaze, you won't regret it. Can't wait to return!! Thank you Tom!!!
Beautiful cabin in a great location. No phone or TV service, but that is not what we were looking for. Spent the week of Christmas and really enjoyed the place. Beautiful hiking scenery. Great hiking and scenery without having to drive anywhere.
We had a great Thanksgiving at this Murphy, NC cabin.
My family gathered here for Thanksgiving weekend. We brought The turkey to cook and found a well stocked kitchen.
Tom was great to work with and shared a lot of information about the area.
While some of us panicked about the lack of cable or satellite TV, we all adjusted well by playing games and doing puzzles.
Overall a great place to stay!!
Thanks again we loved having you stay.
Our TV setup does internet streaming and Blu Rays . Glad you found the kitchen fit for a thanksgiving meal.
Fun Family Weekend
This cabin is very clean and felt very comfortable! Kitchen has everything you could ever need! It is on a very curvy road but a beautiful drive.
Owner was very helpful with maps of the area and things to do. I would stay here again.
Thanks for pictures. Very nice family
Joe Brown Highway follows the lake shore, crosses two bridges and a great drive motorcycle cruisers. Good time to see the natural color fall brings.
Worst experience in 10+ years.
Cabin was beautiful, however FILTHY! agree with previous guest the bathrooms were still not cleaned!. Used linens on bed!. laundry left in washer and dryer. Stove and Fridge were also disgusting..... Owner shared the history of the place but it didn't help with the disappointment of bringing friends on our trip. He did reimburse us the cleaning fee after many conversations.... Renters Beware Again Our family has used VRBO for over 10 years...
This person did not meet as agreed. with us or comply with any of the polices. Vacation Rental ask us to cancel the renter. we did. Next Extortion for Money was demanded. Beware of this person. I fully cleaned the house myself on Nov 10th. Wait to do a walk thru. Contact the authorities.
This is a nice cabin but access from the main road to the cabin can be a little tricky due to a narrow gravel road that ascends through the trees. Parking at the cabin is sparse. It rained while we were there so getting in and out was challenging since the parking area is about 5 ft below the access road. Thankfully we have a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Once inside we found the cabin to be as advertised. Nice lay out and sufficient accommodations. However, the upstairs toilet had not been cleaned. There were dirty bed linens on the closet floor. Closets in other areas of the house were piled with various items rendering the space unusable, and there were no garbage bags to be found. That being said, the property manager was easy to communicate with and very accommodating with adjusted check-in and out times. He was also very informative about the cabin and things to see and do in the area.
Details: What we have found this man to a "forest service road" to our Cabin (why?). Please be assured the road and driveway are flat. 10 year of 2WD Motorcycles, cars and pickup trucks, families towing boats. All work just fine. Even in snow!
Flat Parking area often accommodates two large SUV Trucks. We also allow for two additional cars across the road.
All linens on the closet clean,: -summer sheets. I cleaned the house myself. Closets are large and very useful. Garbage Bags are under the kitchen farm sink.
The Man did not communicate any issue during or after his stay. " Told me the had a great time". This is why we rent.
My question is why he wait 3 weeks later review?
Surrounded by the Nantahala and Cherokee National Forests, the Hiwassee Reservoir on the Hiwassee River serves as a rich habitat for deer, wild turkey and other animals.
The Hiwassee Reservoir is exceptionally beautiful and well suited for canoeing, rafting and learning the basics of whitewater boating. The flow of water in the reservoir comes from deep below the surface and is chilly, even in the summer.
