“Hiker Friendly, Comfortable, Clean Stay”

We have stayed at The Cabin in the Woods on two different occasions while hiking the Appalachian Trail. Our first stay was in the cabin on the side of the hill with a full size bed and a screened porch. It also had a fully furnished kitchen, dining room table and bathroom. It was furnished with linens and toiletry items. This was a very nice cabin, with a beautiful view. We were allowed to leave our hiking supplies there for the day while we hiked and came back that night. The next time we stayed in the cabin on stilts which had only one room, twin beds, shower, microwave and sink. Although it was small, it still had all the accommodations we needed. Again, we stayed in it two different nights with a hike in between. Donna is very friendly and helpful and a good shuttle driver for hikers. She made us feel very welcome and made sure we had everything we needed.

In addition to what you have listed there is now a one room "LOFT" which is very quaint and comfortable. We stayed two nights and look forward to a return visit and will use one of the other available cabins for a longer stay. It is quite a drive up hill but worth every effort to get there.

This area of NC has more that enough in the way of outdoor activities to keep one occupied for weeks.

The hosts a very friendly as are the cats.

“Everything I Needed”

I stayed in the loft. It was quiet, peaceful and had everything I needed for a restful getaway. Phil and Donna were very prompt at returning my call and I ended up leaving that very day for my stay with them. Getting into the property is a little nerve wrecking but once you arrive it more than makes up for it. It is close to lots of attractions and I enjoyed my stay very much.

“The best mountain getaway you could ask for!”

The Cabin in the Woods is the perfect getaway if you're really looking to get away. My fiance and I had the pleasure of staying in both of Donna and Phil's cabins and we loved them both! Our favorite though was The Coop. The screened in porch is a dream. The scenery is breathtaking! Donna and Phil took care of every little comfort we would need and we really appreciated it.

Bryson City is close by and offers plenty to do including hiking some gorgeous falls and tubing down Deep Creek. The grocery store is local and offers everything you would need to grill out at the cabin which is what we did for dinner each night.

The drive up was a little intimidating at first. Very narrow and steep, but definitely no reason not to consider this rental.

In fact, Chris and I are hoping to rent it again the same time next year!

Thanks, Donna and Phil!

“Sweet Place, Great People!”

I'm glad to be the first to review Donna & Phil's "Woodshop" cabin! They're wonderful people and excellent "landlords!"

My daughter & I spent a week here and loved it! The cabin is roomy with a bath & a half, full eat-in kitchen, bedroom and deck.

Donna & Phil thought of everything as far as conveniences in the cabin. The kitchen has everything you'll need to do your own cooking if you choose to do so. (Full sized frig, toaster oven, microwave, plates, cups, glasses, utensils, coffee maker, & even a dish washer!) The deck is equipped with a working gas grill, so you can even cook out if you want. And there's a discount card for the local Ingles grocery store (in Robbinsville) on the keychain.

The place is clean, bright and fresh. The pictures on the website are true representations of the interior & exterior. There were plenty of towels, extra pillows, blankets and sheets and the jacuzzi bathtub came in handy a couple of times after some strenuous hiking/tubing activities.

The ONLY challenge is the lane to the cabin...it's not for the faint of heart. It's very long, narrow, winding & steep and parts of it are gravel. I have a manual transmission Mini Cooper (great get up and go) and we managed it just fine, but I can't imagine trying to get up it in a standard 4-cylinder car. If you go too slow, you won't make it up. However, the cabin and the people are well worth it, for those who are up for it!

The location is perfect. Close to Robbinsville, Bryson City, the Dragon's Tail and many other great locations! Everything you could possibly want and for a very reasonable price!

Thanks so much to both Donna & Phil for their hospitality! Can't wait to return!!!
