“Our Week Above the Clouds”
Reviewed 9 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We were a group of 4 couples in the right age(grown children and grandchildren). Our group arrived 2 ways the guys rode their motorcycles and the women in a car.
This worked out well for us. We have not done this in the past but there was going to be a day or two where our group was going to split. The car came in handy as we stopped at Ingles on the way to the house to stock our food for the week. We also drove the car down on ride days and left it at the bottom of the hill so the guys didn't have to go up and down with passengers.
Our first impression of the house was amazing even though when we arrived there were some clouds and fog you could still see some of the mountains that was the case only the first night, after that the weather was good and views clear.
The deck views are amazing and we spent most of our time at the house outdoors we had most of our meals outside also.
Several nights we spent star gazing as where we live there is so much light pollution you don't realize how many stars are out there. Several of our group loaded a star gazing app on their phones which helped in identifying the constellations.
The kitchen was fully stocked with all you need to prepare your meals.
On our trip we visited the Biltmore Estate NOC for rafting and took several scenic rides to the Highlands, Cherokee, Bryson City and others.
Our last night we went to Willys barbecue great food and so friendly with great service.
The house does have many stairs because of the many levels but the upper driveway brings you to the main level of the house on this level is the kitchen living room 2 bedrooms and a bathroom and access to the main deck with dining table and the grill. This helps if you have issues with mobility or stairs. The washer and dryer and garage are one floor down but accessible from the lower driveway through the garage, This is the level where the Master bedroom is located.
Lucy was our contact while at the house and she was amazing and very helpful.
We had rented from Nestor in the Keys last year. he is always professional and helpful. We would highly recommend this house and Nestor if you find yourself in the Smokey Mountains area.

“Magical. A perfect family retreat. ”

You'd be hard pressed to find a more appealing place in the Smokies, no matter what your budget. The view is incredible; you're not just gazing at a distant vista, the Treehouse is pretty much in the middle of it. The property feels very secluded and wooded, yet with a very open view from the decks. The huge living room windows offer amazing views while you're on the couches. Great space for multiple families; two master suites each on their own floors were perfect for our two family vacation. The kids lived in the loft, even though there were bedrooms for them as well. Lucy and Allan (who maintain the property) are darling, and just a phone call away. We especially enjoyed watching the many hummingbirds who frequent the feeder on the main deck. Great amenities, awesome parking, fantastically easy to use gas grill and great kitchen. Easy drive on a paved road up the mountain. Nestor (the owner) is incredibly professional and responsive. It breaks our hearts a little to leave this place, but it was an amazing adventure for our family. We loved finding the secret waterfalls just a short hike from the house. Highly recommend the Treehouse.

We loved our stay at Above the Clouds! Although our stay was fairly short, we found the house extremely relaxing, spacious and comfortable. The views are beautiful and the hot tub was a nice addition to the cool evenings. We were very content relaxing on the balcony with the sound of rushing water in the distance. We were also surprised at how close several waterfalls were to the property, not to mention the scenic byway.

Jeff was very accommodating and has much knowledge of the area. I would highly recommend Above the Clouds for a peaceful vacation within close proximity to hiking, shopping, and scenic drives.

My partner and I had a delightful three days. We choose to use the king size master bed room featuring a sleigh bed, gas logs fireplace which is surrounded by picture windows. The mountain views inspire the Sound of Music ! A great aspect of being in a large dwelling is that one can get an aerobic workout indoors and still appreciate the mountain views.

The elegant fully appointed kitchen, which included heated floors was wonderful......wish I could have transported it home with me.....

I loved the big hot tub on the deck....nothing like watching swirling fluffy snowflakes while in a hot tub.

Jeff, The cabin care taker could not have been more hospitable. He was also a wealth of information about local attractions and where to go for the best buys. We definitely will be back !
