We really enjoyed our stay at Mountain Oaks. My husband and I stayed for 1 week at this home. It is and has everything the description states. The home is tastefully decorated with local pieces. There were even books available on the area which was a nice touch. This home is perfect for a family or two couples. We loved the option to bring our dogs since we thought we may have to take them with us due to a impending hurricane but we did not. Although this home will not provide a mountain view, it is surrounded by beautiful woods and has a valley below the deck in which we saw deer passing through. We enjoyed the peace of nature in the secluded area. The hot tub was a welcome amenity after our days of adventuring. The only amenity missing that would have been useful would have been a washer and dryer (there are laundry mats close by though). Although this cabin is private, we feel it was very nicely located within a reasonable distance from many activities. Unicoi State Park is very close by, we also enjoyed white water rafting within an hour drive. Hiking, beautiful views, dining, and the German-themed town of Helen is all nearby. Overall this is a great home in a great location! We did not give Mountain Oaks 5 stars for the following reasons... The cleaning service did not seem to do a thorough job cleaning the home, there were overlooked areas and missed details. While we understand that staying in the woods brings just that, nature, we would have expected a bit more care be taken to maintain a beautiful home like this. There seemed to be a critter issue, one being that we could hear noises in the wall at night. We made Vacasa aware of the issues we encountered. Some of which were addressed during our stay. Overall we would recommend this home to guests and advise Vacasa to revisit their cleaning standards.
