“Great Views and private! Porch swing was so nice to enjoy views and nature!”
Reviewed 22 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

The mattresses on BOTH beds desperately to need to be replaced! They are very old and were not comfortable at all (they dipped in the middle and the sides came up too-very hard to get in and out of bed much less sleep well). Both mattresses on each double bed was about 5" thick. Both our backs ached the whole time we were there. It kind of affected our trip, because we were not fully rested each day. The dishes (no dishwasher) were not properly cleaned by the previous renters so we had to wash each plate, silverware, pots and cups we intended to use. The kitchen towels were in desperate need of replacement. The fireplace was not cleaned either. The saving grace of this little cabin was location, the great fireplace and the lovely views we had. They owners are very nice and if those mattresses were replaced we would come back.

Robin and I thank you for your suggestions.. Each season - Robin and i - make sure we do at least one (if not several) upgrades.. Last season we placed premium wall to wall carpet throughout our comfy 'Little Slice' cabin.. Also, we cut many trees below so our panoramic Smokey Mtn view would stay incredible (planning to improve our view even more this season)
We will upgrade our bedding for the upcoming season in time for our 2016 spring time guests.. We appreciate your thoughts and your suggestions. Robin and Michael

“Breathtaking scenery is only one of the benefits of this cabin.”
Reviewed 15 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Robin and Michael were very helpful in our planning and preparing for a relaxing few days in the mountains.The view from the front porch was spectacular as we spent time use the rocking chairs and swing. The inside of the cabin was well furnished and included all of the kitchen supplies that we needed. The drive to the cabin was a little narrow, but once Lynn and I got there, we never left until it was time to come home.The dvds and books were to my liking I even found a Lewis Grizzard book). It was a wonderful 3 days of relaxing and enjoying the fireplace. The wifi and phone service were great, we did have a little trouble adapting to the Dish remote. Thanks for sharing your cabin with us. Lynn and Tad

“Wonderful absolutely loved it !”
Reviewed 18 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My husband our daughter n our 2 dogs stayed there. It was everything we expected n much more.The only thing that made me a little nervous was the road. One small section was scary. But well worth the trip up to the top of the mountain. Loved the airport view.

We had the best time and loved every minute of it. We plan to make this an annual trip. We saw a rainbow twice and had a hard time leaving the porch. The house provided everything we needed and the owner was very accomadating.

I love this place. We hope to go back again. The front porch was good for just sitting with coffee and getting back to equanimity.
