“A Great Mountain Get Away!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

Spent 4 days and 3 nights in the Mountain Springs Cabin at Panther Creek. It was such a relaxing and wonderful trip. We enjoyed listening to the creek that ran in front of the cabin (It was fun to play in it too). We have a few showers while we were there and enjoyed listening to the rain on the tin roof as we rocked in the rocking chairs on the front porch. We made all of our meals in the full kitchen and charcoal grill. It is conveniently located to the casino, cherokee, and Bryson City.We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and plan to return again:) Wonderful experience!

We stayed at these cabins for six years in a row with very few problems, but last year in 2012, the management changed and we had a horrible experience; dirty cabins, people across the street (local tenants, not vacationers) getting drunk and playing very loud music 2 nights in a row; we called the police twice; then to top it all off we were charged a $75 fee for not cleaning up; keep in mind, we had never been charged anything for not cleaning up properly in the previous 6 years we had stayed. Steer clear of this place; it is not worth the rates!!

As we stated before, you did not contact the office for help, And your statement of our cabins is Absolutely NOT true unfortunately your being Vindictive for the charges of your stay. The owner has NOT changed since the creation of the cabins and our Guest are always pleased with our cabins. As for the cleanliness of the cabins, it has been the same crew for over 8 years. And they are top of the line.

Love the cabin, the hosts were very helpful and friendly. Although we're not a big fan of the commercialism of Cherokee (seems a little like a tourist trap), the cabin was the high point of the weekend. The location is up and away from the main village, so if you're looking for a quiet, rustic weekend location, this is it. Thank you for such a nice weekend!

We stayed in Cherokee Hunt Lodge in Cherokee NC. cabin had 4 bedrooms. 2 on each side with living area and kitchen in middle. 2 bathrooms . Lots of room. Beautifully decorated with primitive artifacts. Full front porch with rockers and jacuzzi. There was several inches of snow so we didn't get to enjoy outside. It is 3.7 miles up the mountain so the road was snow covered but we got home ok. Miriam went above and beyond the call of duty getting out in the snow to bring us wood for the fireplace and she was very friendly and helpful. Other heat is a gas heater on the wall.

Room Tip: There are several cabins there with different numbers of bedrooms.

My husband had actually booked a surprise weekend getaway for us in the Fall of 2009. I fell in love with the place! We stayed in "Fancy's Creek House". It was amazing. Small, quiet and perfectly clean!! We spent the weekend driving through the parkway, and coming back to our romantic little cabin and setting on the porch, listening to the creek!
In November 2010, I booked a surprise stay for the weekend of my husband's birthday, and we stayed in the "Natures Landing" cabin. It was even more wonderful than our previous visit. Carla had went into the cabin and turned on the heat so it would be warm and inviting. It was extremley cold, and we actually woke up to snow the next morning! The creek that runs by the cabin, (the porch actually overlooks it) had ice frozen in the small falls, and on the mountain laurels. It was breathtaking!
The cabins that we stayed in have small, but efficiently stocked kitchens. I brought my groceries, and of course I had baked a homemade birthday cake for my husband and brought along.
The cabins are cleaned spotless, and there is plenty of very hot water for the in-cabin jacuzzi tub, complete with bubble bath, candles and wine glasses! I will be booking our romantic, no kids allowed getaway soon!!!
Note, there is no pool, and no room service. There are several amazing places to eat in Cherokee, including Pauls, where they serve authentic indian tacos. Its a must!

Room Tip: Book several months ahead due to Rod Run and Harley Rally!

My husband went went with two other friends to this cabin for a fishing trip. It was great! I would go back any time I am in the area. The owner is very nice. The grounds are just beautiful! If you want to get away from everything yet not be far from town this is the place for you! Why stay in a hotel when you can stay in a cabin with everything you need!

I normally do not write reviews but love the rustic feeling and quietness of the cabin during the fall season. The owners Noel and Carla were very nice and we plan on coming back again next year to hike some more of the area.

The cabins are decorated in old time decor and there is no internet (which I loved). The creek is right next to the cabins and with the exception of some traffic you can hear the water rushing.

It is away from all the touristy look that the downtown has and is more in line w/a country feel.
