Excellent everything we needed was in cabin.Cabin was very beautiful very neat and clean. Dishes, frig, stove, grill,
I don't have ONE complaint about this cabin and we have made a ton of memories here this weekend. It will be our home away from home and we will be back several times a year! Billie - you're so sweet and thank you for all of your help.
My husband and I were married November 16,2017. We we so happy with choosing this cabin. It is clean and well maintained. It is unimaginably well stocked! Most of all it was beautiful, inside and out. It was the most romantic and wonderful honeymoon spot.
Thanks Billie for providing a couple of old love birds with the perfect location for our Honeymoon!
From the moment we walked through the door Refuge wrapped its arms around us and we were in the home of our dreams. The first thing you notice is the cathedral ceilings and open space and then you're drawn in by the wall of windows looking out over the bluff to the river below.
The giant back porch spanning the full width of the cabin has double French doors, rocking chairs, grill and patio table. Twinkle lights and votive candles all around create the picture of romance.
The cabin had everything we could have needed and was decorated with elegant details from top to bottom. The enormous bed along with the fresh mountain air provided us the best sleep we'd had in a very long time.
My dad and his wife stayed in their RV at the campground just down the slope and our kids stayed in one of the small cabins there. It was just a couple minutes drive down the hill for us all to be together. My dad took us across the mountain to see the elk who were relocated several years back. They were literally within feet of the car. Stunning!
Two adults and maybe two small children could sleep comfortably in Refuge but it's more suited for a couple alone.
Our trip to the Smokies was truly magical and we are thinking seriously of relocating to the area. We will definitely be going back and perhaps trying one of the other cabins...maybe in the winter. Billie was a pleasure to work with and made sure our vacation was perfection!
Billie, the owner, has created a lovely "refuge" out of this cabin. The back porch is beautiful - it is large and has been decorated with little lights and bird houses. We enjoyed sitting out there drinking the wonderful Keurig coffee that was provided and listening to the people below as they tubed down the river. It is a lovely setting with all the trees and river below! The interior is well furnished and also decorated lovely! Everything was extremely clean and meticulous! Billie pours her heart into the cabin and it is very apparent in all the details.
We saw mama bear and her babies and that was truly a spectacular moment; one we will never forget! Billie, I enjoyed talking with you and appreciate your kindness and the care you give your property! We will definitely come back again. Thanks again for your sweet hospitality!!
Perfect get away. Close to everything but far enough to relax on mountain side. Billy was very easy to get ahold of and great to deal with. I have recommended to everyone I know.
