Best Family Vacation Yet!
We spent 6 nights at this cabin in mid June with our entire family (7 people in total). We were happy that we still got to have a decent amount of privacy with the separate downstairs master suite, enclosed garage, hot tub, and deck areas and also found it very convenient to have three full bathrooms so there wasn't a huge line for the shower delaying our start each morning. . We were very pleased with the location of this cabin - a short drive to Asheville and Cherokee, with plenty of shops and places for meals in Maggie Valley as well. The nearby golf course definitely makes it feel like you're staying in a nice community. As far as places to check out close by, our favorites were: Ingles (HUGE grocery store), Maggie Valley Puzzle Rooms (very new "escape room" business that is an excellent option for rainy days or evening activities), Maggie Valley Family Restaurant (loved the food!), Jelly Bellies Mountain Gift Shop (candies/gifts/icecream). There are a TON more options - but we had already planned several activities in Asheville/Bryson City so we didn't get to do as much as we could have in the immediate area. Overall, this was by far the best family vacation we have taken in years. We did several activities together, but also had time to do a few things in smaller groups so everyone got to do what they wanted. This cabin was a great, peaceful place to meet back up and plan out the next adventure! The only things we noticed were that there were a few lights that needed to be replaced during our stay and the washing machine sounded a little worrisome, but neither of these issues bothered us enough to contact the owners. We did however contact the owners to change our reservation about a month before the trip - we had some responsibilities come up and needed to shorten the trip by a few days; Dawn was great and accommodating - we had our new days and payment amounts setup with 24 hours!
