Perfect getaway for two
Pros: We came up for a few days from Orlando to visit some family who live in the area. This cabin is in a perfect location. It is rural and up in the mountains but it was very easy to find and very easy to access. There are cabins tucked away all around this area but we hardly saw anyone when we were there. It was so quiet. We were looking for a great view and some privacy up in the mountains but we still wanted to be somewhat close to town. This cabin definitely met our needs. It is a small cabin, very clean and perfect for two people. We brought our dog who enjoyed the long walks around the mountain roads. There is also small creek at the bottom of the mountain road that he liked to play in. There are many great places to hike and fish nearby so we were always busy outdoors. There is a front covered porch with a grill to use. We ate most of our meals at the table on the porch and spent the evenings enjoying the cooler air and watching the fireflies light up the dark forest around us. It was so peaceful. The cabin was very clean and well stocked. You do not need to overpack with supplies. The owner had pretty much everything right there. The bed is comfortable and the sheets/pillows/linens/towels are all nice quality. Cons: The only issues to comment on is when we first arrived we noticed that the satellite dish tv in the living room was not connecting. It kept saying we lost our signal so we had to reset the box a few times. Tv ended up working for the most part during our stay but on and off it would lose its connection. Owner was aware of our issues and did try to help as best he could. The tv in the bedroom did not have any cable connected but it is a Smart Tv so you could watch Netflix, You tube, etc. There is no cell service at the cabin. We did get a signal at the very top of road but it was weak. Owner does have Wifi however, so we communicated via email for the most part if we had to reach out to anyone during our stay. There is no garbage can in the kitchen so we just used loose trash bags during our stay. No ice trays, no oven mits found. There is only a futon to sit on in the living room and it was uncomfortable. No outdoor firepit. There are no instructions from the owner regarding arrival/departure so we had to reach out to him via email a lot regarding wifi code, satellite tv issue, rules he had in place for our departure. Owner was very receptive to all of our questions throughout our stay
