“Very nice, but…”
Reviewed 15 September 2007

We stayed in the ‘Peak of Perfection’ cabin, and it was extremely nice – and would have been nicer had all the amenities worked. The wifi Internet the cabin was supposed to have never worked, lights were burned out, and the audio for the X-Box 360 didn’t work. I’m sure the occasional volley of gunfire echoing from the valley below was nothing the property management could help, but it was still a little troubling. And, there were hornets – big ones. Beautiful views, clean, lovely place, and would have been much more fun if everything worked. If you’re looking for a place to spend longer than a long weekend, keep looking. You’ll really get cabin fever with so many of the amenities not functioning. And the snotty note left in the bathroom about stealing robes from the closets was less than endearing.

The various rules surrounding this resort, while understandable, also detracted from the reservation. We should be able to use as many towels as we like without being cautioned against it, and the notes about taking out trash were unappreciated. Ask pointed questions when you’re looking to reserve a cabin here.

  • Disliked — Amenities did not work properly, cabin had hornet problem.

We stayed at ''Cherokee Lodge'' Cleanest, prettiest cabin I've ever seen. Even the sheets and towels smelled fresh.

The managers are super nice and gave us $30 off when we stayed an extra night.

The area is lovely too!

  • Liked — pet friendly! We brought our 2 well behaved dogs.
  • Disliked — We had to leave. honestly!

CABIN FEVER ......This 3br/3bath cabin is just beautiful. The view is breathtaking. We spent Christmas week up there and did not want to come home. The hot tub is out under all the stars , so wonderful and relaxing. The porches are enclosed . Which was nice because we have a small dog and yes they were kind enough to let us bring her. You will find there is nothing this cabin is lacking. It is stocked with any and everything you may need. We do this every year and I was very impressed with how much detail the owners had thought of. My family watched many movies on the big tv in the living room and the gameroom was fun too. This place is so warm , cozy and homey. I would definetly recommend staying here and hope to go back myself one day. The management of the cabin are super nice also.

Stayed December 2006
