“Beautiful setting; relaxing cabin woodstove inoperable”
Reviewed December 3, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Everything was neat, clean and nicely appointed as you would expect. You should be advised however that although the property advertises a woodstove, once you arrive, you see it has a sign on it telling you not to use it, to enjoy the fireplace upstairs instead. (There isn't one) To me, this is kind of like saying a property has a pool, but when you arrive, theres a no swimming sign. Bad form. Seems a bit disingenuous to me. On the plus side, the heated bathroom floors were FABULOUS. Loved the setting and the view, and there's a lovely, friendly neighborhood dog who comes around to visit.

Thank you for taking the time to review Laurel Branch cabin We're glad that you enjoyed your stay. The woodstove at Laurel Branch is currently under repair and we do not have it listed as an amenity on our website. Also, there is not a fireplace upstairs at Laurel Branch, perhaps you reviewed the wrong cabin? Please keep us in mind for your future trips.

“Quite and Secluded”
Reviewed August 20, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

If you are looking for a quite cabin with no visible neighbors, this a good choice. Not on the main road but close enough to everything. Great if you travel with a pet, there is plenty of room to explore without bothering anyone.

“Secluded Cabin with Modern Upgrades”
Reviewed June 27, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This cabin was as advertised. The location is great if you want to be secluded, but there is a little travel time involved to get to the "attractions" of the area. Arrive during the day or the cabin will be hard to find. The cabin was clean and in good condition. Not luxurious by any means, but has modern upgrades. The living room furniture was the only real disappointment. It looked like it would be comfortable but was not really; I often just wanted to sit inside the secluded cabin and read. It also lacked internet which was a bit frustrating since the cell service there was not great. I have Verizon which they said was the best service in the area, but still needed to be outside to get a weak 4G signal for internet. The kitchen was well stocked with clean utensils, dishes, etc.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

Liked best: It was secluded and in pretty good condition. The hot tube was great as well.
Liked least: I thought the furniture in the main living area was uncomfortable and a bit cheap; not great when you just want to sit in the otherwise pleasant cabin and relax.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review Laurel Branch. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and that you felt it was as advertised.

Cell service is weak in the mountains. While Verizon is the best it can be difficult to receive signal in that setting. Because of that Laurel Branch does have a landline so you can still be reached.

Here are the distances from Laurel Branch to some of the most popular attractions:
• Harrahs Cherokee Casino is a 34 minute drive, or 25 miles
• The Great Smoky Mountains Railroad is a 23 minute drive, or 14 miles
• The NOC (Nantahala Outdoor Center) is an 18 minute drive, or 9 miles
• White Water Rafting is a 14 minute drive, or 6 miles
• Deep Creek in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a 27 minute drive, or 15 miles
• The Visitors Center (Oconaluftee) for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a 40 minute drive, or 25 miles
• The Biltmore Estate is an hour and 20 minute drive, or 76 miles

Please keep us in mind for your future vacations. As a VIP repeat guest you will receive a 10% discount off any of our cabins.

Thank you, PW, for taking the time to review Laurel Branch. We're glad you felt it had a comfortable feel and was well stocked.

Mountain driving can be an interesting experience! We hope you found the directions helpful.

We will relay your feedback about the window coverings to the owner. Many cabins in this area with no immediate neighbors have uncovered windows like this, which can be unusual for guests used to closer neighbors.
With your feedback, the owner may decide to make changes to the cabin.

As for the location, please keep us in mind for your future vacations -- if you are wanting something closer to town, just let us know and we will be happy to make suggestions. As a repeat guest you will receive a 10% discount when you call to book.
