5/5 Excellent

100% Perfection
My family and I had an amazing time! This cabin was exactly as described, if not better. Easy location if you know how to navigate a car in reverse for a few feet. Close to whatever you need, just a short drive to stores, trails or attractions!

Polar Express Trip!
This lovely home couldn't have been more perfect and peaceful! We had 3 adults and 4 kids. ( 30, 29, 27, 10, 4, 2 and 2). Only 20 minutes from Bryson City to the Train ride! I will recommend and return to this location in the future! Thank you for a beautiful place to stay!

Lovely Patio and decor
Love the decor of the house! Kitchen is equipped with most of things one needs. The patio was the highlight of this cabin. The road to reach the property is graveled and was very steep.

4/5 Good

Great stay in Almond!
My family went over the fourth of July weekend and had an amazing time. The cabin was great and a nice hub for doing surrounding activities. The porch was dreamy! The only thing I can comment on was there was a new thermostat installed and it would not stay to where we set it. I communicated this to the owner and she was able to set the temperature. Communication was quick and easy! We had a blast and are already thinking about when we can return!

4/5 Good

Cozy and comfortable
We really enjoyed our stay even though it was cold then rainy. Loved how cozy the cabin was and really enjoyed the decorations. The outdoor pictures are a bit misleading as it’s not very secluded and located on a steep hill. We were fine but the dirt road climb might be tough if you didn’t have 4x4. Would book again.
