My boyfriend and I stayed at Jus Nappin for two nights in late March 2013 and we thought it was absoultely perfect.
The location---off the beaten path and just enough in the mountains that you feel secluded. It was only about 20 minutes to Asheville (which is not a bad drive at all) and we were able to go to the Biltmore and to a Brewery in Asheville before going home to cook dinner. It was definitely a little chilly while we were there but the mountains were beautiful!
The Cabin--we could not have asked for a more homey and lovely place to spend some alone time. It had everything we needed and more, but did not feel crowded or cluttered. The bed was incredibly comfortable-we did find some extra (much needed) blankets in the drawers. The little gas fireplace was wonderful at heating the cabin (turn the futon into a bed in front of the fire and tv for perfect movie watching). All of the movie channels they listed came in clear and the tv was definitely a nice size for the room. The cabin had a full kitchen, and we were able to make dinner and breakfast without a hitch (only salt and pepper in the kitchen, so don't forget sugar for your morning coffee!). We ate at a very impressive Mexican Restaurant about 10 minutes from the cabin called El Chapala on the Smoky Park Highway our first night because we were too tired to make dinner--plenty of leftovers. The hot tub never was hot enough for us, but that is understandable since they drain and refill the hot tubs for every new guest, so at least we knew it was clean and fresh...and it's pretty hard to complain about a hot tub at a 2 person cabin, you can't find that anywhere!!!---it could have been cold and we still would have been happy with it. The shower/bathroom is small but we didn't mind. The water pressure and temperature were fantastic.
Really can't say enough wonderful things about our stay. We can't wait to come back and stay for at least a week next time! Perfect escape for couples who need a little alone time.
