“Peaceful, relaxing vacation”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

1st thing, if you have never been to the area, google earth is your friend. Finding the cabin based on the directions given...not good. So do your search before you leave home. The cabin was GREAT. Getting to the cabin can be a challenge. It was motorcycle friendly if you are an experienced rider. The road to the cabin could be a challenge for the novice. Real tight switchback right before the cabin. Great location, takes 15 minutes to get to main road. So you are not in a crowded area, but you are close enough to town to run and get supplies if needed. Get to town before 5pm...the sidewalks are rolled up and put away until the next day..LOL it was a great place, I will go back. I will take more supplies on our next trip. Was disappointed that the wildlife was not prevelant in the area..check out the road to no where...

Thank you for reviewing Mountain Lure Cabin. We appreciate your feedback and will relay it to the Property Manager.

For future guests - we actually do not recommend using Google Earth or other mapping services (even GPSs) to locate cabins. We provide turn by turn directions from the area to the property with mileage since most guests using those services end up lost.

Mountain Lure is located up a steep and winding road, which can be a new experience! If you've not driven roads like this before with cars we recommend putting your vehicle into low gear both going up and down. We also suggest using a slow and steady speed as you drive up, so that you maintain momentum.

The advice about the town rolling up is pretty accurate for this area! Many local boutique shops will close, while restaurants and grocery stores will stay open later. Also there are a few bars in town, that would be open such as the Nantahala Brewery. For more nightlife, Harrahs Cherokee Casino has various restaurants and bars. Cherokee would be about 25-30 minutes from Mountain Lure. This is the quiet side of the Smokys and much more laid back than the Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge areas.

As far as wildlife goes, elk visit the Cherokee entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on a regular basis. Another spot with frequent wildlife in the National Park would be the Cataloochee Valley area near Waynesville -- this would be about an hour from Mountain Lure. Some of our cabins do have wildlife visit them, such as deer, but please be reminded even in the National Park these are not domesticated animals and they should not be approached!

The "Road To Nowhere" is a scenic drive to the North of Bryson City into an entrance of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It's an incomplete road with a tunnel, and hiking trails. From one of the trails Fontana Lake with mountains in the background is visible.
