I stayed here 2 years ago and let bed it! This place will alway be in my heart.the pace was clean and neat. The bed could be upgraded. I loved the tub! I hope to visit this fall in the fall again. The casino was fun and there are a lot of flea markets around the area.

We had a great time! The cabin was just the perfect place we were looking for. Very convenient to the Smokey Mountains, casino and other activities in the area. White water rafting and tubing lots of fun! Check out Bryson City too which is about 20 minute drive. Will be back for sure! Thanks so much!

Ok, this is not a swanky hotel with room service. This is a log cabin in the mountains! Our cabin was on the creek that we could hear babbling all night, and soothed us to sleep. Cozy bed with a quilt, fireplace, and decorated like a cbin in the woods should be. This is a breath of fresh air. Sit... More

Wonderful people who own this Gem of a place. You feel like you are so far away from everything. We relaxed, hiked, shopped, cooked dinner, had a fire and showed our Grandson how to live life without electronics. What a treat. Thank you for everything!!!

Enjoyed my stay at Panther Creek Cabins. We got the "Bear Crossing Cabin". Cost wasn't bad, right in the ballpark of what we wanted to spend. Great location, right down the road from Harrah's , Smoky Mountain Park, and Maggie Valley. Only downside is that the tv went broke, but didn't really affect the trip since we weren't indoors alot.... More

My husband and I enjoyed a spur of the moment trip to Cherokee and our stay at Panther Creek cabins! Our cabin was welcoming, and we relaxed easily in Bear Crossing! We enjoyed sitting creekside and in the rockers!! Can't wait to go back!!

We were due to stay three nights at the end of July. For the price and the label "premier" we expected something pretty good, having stayed in cabins elsewhere. We arrived on a Sunday late afternoon, and were very disappointed with the standard of this cabin. Very tired facilities: noisy old air conditioning, damp bed, tatty bathroom, litter outside, broken... More

We spent 5 nights in Fancy's Creek House what a treasure this place is. The cabin was clean, no bugs, and the linens were provided. Some may say the cabin was small however for two people looking for one time alone it couldn't have been any better. The rocking chairs on the back porch overlooking the poetic mountain stream are...
