A lovely cabin

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend and it was a great getaway. The cabin was spotless and well-stocked. It was just the two of us but you could have easily fit a family of four or more. The place is nicely appointed with interesting art on the wall, a bookcase filled with local guides and some videos as well. We especially liked the view of the mountains at dusk from the porch. There were fireflies by the creek and it was very beautiful. The owners live down the road if you need anything but you can't see their house and the cabin felt very private. One tip: if you want to cook, stop at the store in Hot Springs on the way in. The closer one in Trust, NC has a great cafe but the groceries are pretty basic. In any case, I highly recommend this cabin. We'll be back as soon as we can. I've stayed at a lot of home away properties and this was the best by far.

We have rented cabins and condos through VRBO many times. Our experiences have always been good ones but this cabin and host were the best! Very clean cabin in a quiet location with every amenity you could desire in a mountain cabin. The creek is noisy and lovely, the decks and yard and firepit are beautiful, and the inside of the cabin is simply perfect. The beds were comfy, the kitchen well-equipped, and everything was TRULY clean. The owners are artists and it shows in the extra touches throughout the property. Great area for exploring the outdoors and Hot Springs is small but charming. We would recommend this cabin without hesitation!
