Rodney F. | Aug 2022
The house is very large with lots of spaces for adults and grandchildren to gather. The very best part was the wonderful deep porch that had a lovely view. And it was very close to a grocery store and various restaurants in Waynesville. A wonderful location to access the parkway, also as well as tubing and other tourist adventures.

i adored staying here over the weekend!! came up and was immediately relaxed walking into this cozy home. my family and i had a fun time relaxing in the living room together playing games and watching tv. the house is super close to dillsboro, but which has amazing food and shops! i was even able to get through a couple of my books, and reading in the porch with an amazing view is something else!
