COME EXPERIENCE FOR YOURSELF WHY SO MANY OF OUR GUESTS REFER TO THIS PLACE AS 'A SLICE OF HEAVEN'
'All of us had a very enjoyable vacation. You have a slice of heaven here. We will go back home with memories that will last a lifetime.'
"We had our family Thanksgiving here and the cabin was perfect. Well stocked kitchen and a nice big dining room table. Plenty of bath towels and extra bedding for the futons. Comfortable beds. Satellite TV so we could still watch the game. Very remote and peaceful setting. Great yard for the kids to explore. Highly recommend!!"
"The Smoky Mountain Home was an awesome get-away for my family and I. The acreage behind the cabin, and subsequent trails, provided a great warm up hike for my three children, before we headed out to Max Patch in Pisgah National Forest later that day. The Cabin was warm and inviting and has all the amenities you need for a weekend in the woods. I can't recommend highly enough this rental and the time your family will have there. Thanks again Chloe for this awesome weekend rental."
"We loved your cabin. It was roomy and clean and had absolutely everything we needed or wanted. Loved sitting on the deck watching the moon. Everything just perfect. I particularly appreciated the thoughtfulness that you put into making the cabin welcoming. Also I appreciated that it was tastefully decorated without a thousand dusty knick-knacks that one so often finds cluttering up a rental property. I liked not finding a bunch of old condiments in the refrigerator. Your movie, game, and book selections were great, although we didn't really have time to do any of that because the weather was so perfect. My 2 sisters and I agreed that it was the best place we'd ever rented."
"It was exactly as she had described, we were very comfortable, and very much enjoyed the cabin and beautiful property on which it sits. Chloe provided excellent directions to the cabin, how to enter, and how everything in the cabin works. Her tips about things to do in the area and the thoughtful touches (kitchenware, paper products, attraction/tourist information, board games/books/art supplies) in the cabin were all appreciated! My teenage boys loved the cabin."
"Absolutely loved it. Everything we were looking for. Had 4 boys ages 6-11 who had a blast exploring the property. A great getaway in the mountains and close enough to spend the day in Asheville. Would love to come back again."
"Our family had a very wonderful time in Chloe's cabin, which is mostly like a home! Very beautiful nature around. We enjoyed going to the nearby lake and hot springs. We also went to the National Forest Mountains, and had a wonderful time staying around. The cabin has everything that you need, it's very comfortable and beautiful design, very clean all over, very spacious, and lovely to stay. We are already thinking about coming back to this cabin. Loved it!!!!!"
"Chloe was a wonderful host and very accommodating, she made some great suggestions that we took advantage of. Her suggestions were perfect for us, and made our vacation absolutely exceptional. The description she provided was spot on and when we arrived it was even better than it sounded. Chloe made everything super easy for us and she couldn't have been more helpful. I can't wait to hopefully visit again, it is such a wonderful and beautiful property, especially for a much needed get away. It has everything you'd need to have a great time, inside and outside. The Cabin is so well maintained and gives off that perfect smoky mountain cabin feel, with all the modern day amenities. It's so relaxing and the view of the mountains is unbelievable. Thanks so much for everything Chloe, we really appreciate it!"
"This cabin is a true delight! As soon as we got off i-40 we immediately started to relax and started to enjoy the breathtaking mountain views. Not only is the property gorgeous , the cabin is very charming , cozy and welcoming. Everything we could have possibly wanted or needed was already present in this wonderful cabin - even hiking sticks, trail map, binoculars , and all sorts of tranquil spots to relax and soak up all the beautiful surroundings. Whether you are on a romantic rendezvous , a friends/family gathering, or just a relaxing nature retreat, this cabin is truly a hidden gem!"
"We were there for a wedding and the whole week was magical, with the scenery, the setting, the weather, the accommodations. The cabin/cottage was perfectly located for our needs and the accommodations were ideal. We relaxed on the porch and in the yard in the mornings and just generally enjoyed the beautiful setting. Bedding, bath and kitchen necessities were all readily available and more than adequate. It was such a blessing to be able to travel so far and arrive at a home away from home without any worries. Thanks ever so much."
"The cabin was perfect, just what we needed. Not only was it private, it was comfortable, and peaceful. We watched the sunrise and the moonrise, as there was a full moon one of the nights we were there. Amazing watching the clouds dance over the mountain in the moonlight! I highly recommend this cabin for anyone who is looking for a private and peaceful getaway!"
"Chloe's mountain view cabin completely left us in awe! The view is immaculate, the cabin complete with all necessities for an enjoyable stay, moreover, the water quality from the onsite well added to list of amenities. Chloe provided a self-checkin method, which was of great use, as we came in late on the road. Overall we were pleased with our stay and her hospitality and plan to return soon!!!"
"We enjoyed the cabin so much. We are celebrating our 5th anniversary and plan to make this a tradition. This cabin is so beautiful and comfortable it feels like home to us. The views are breathtaking and we didn't want to leave."
