Great Vacation Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Family and friends enjoyed our girls weekend away at Bark Branch. It was a wonderful location with a lovely view. Very peaceful, quiet, and relaxing. Gorgeous sunrises. The cabin was spacious, comfortable, clean, and beautiful. The kitchen and linen closets were well stocked. Bunk beds better suited for children than adults! The king beds were very comfortable. Luxurious accommodations. Very professional, pleasant, and easy to work with. Would recommend this property to friends and would definitely stay here again!

Bark Branch

  • 4 of 5

It was very lovely. However the code to the front door was changed at the last minute. Had I not called for directions (I left my copy at home), I don't know what we would had done. OK! House keeping was a little short. Cobwebs on light fixtures. Dust on blinds. Broken towel rack (that was known about before we checked in). Grandkids had a great time- making a bedroom behind the downstairs bar and in the walk-in closet in the MB bedroom. All-in-all we had a blast! All 15 of us. Would we go back? YES!

The view was exceptional. The fire pit was marvelous for cool nigh family gathering. Thanks

Breathtaking view of the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

This stay was a family & friend getaway we did with all our kids and it did not disappoint! The home was incredible and perfect for our vacation needs! The beds were so comfortable, accommodations were so guest-friendly, the master suite was just beautiful, the kids loved that they had their own domain downstairs with games, pool table and hot tub! I loved that the linen closet was stocked with many towels so we could all enjoy the hot tub and a shower before having to do a load of laundry. But most of all the view was breathtaking! Unfortunately there are no places that deliver food there so plan ahead for that first night until you get to a store. I highly recommend this one!

Wonderful Cabin, Awesome Views, Perfect Family Vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family getaway in almost 6 years and we picked the perfect spot for it. Plenty of rooms and beds for the kids and grandkids. Cabin has all of the amenities of home and yet when you walk out side and see the view, you remember you're on vacation. Breathtaking view from the porches. The location is perfect, even with the leaves fallen from the trees you can barely see any other places around you and with the higher location, there is very little to no noise. Nights and Mornings are very quiet and relaxing. The location is perfect for day trips to Cherokee, Asheville, Bryson City, etc. The ladies loved the Waynesville shopping area and the shops in Maggie Valley. The trip to the Hiram Caldwell homestead and Elk viewing area was amazing.

The customer service staff (Windy) was easy to work with and replied almost immediately to every question, no matter how minor. We made installments throughout the year and after each installment was made, receipts and updated account info was returned via email. Directions and instructions were well defined and easy to follow.

Thank you once again and we would highly recommend the Bark Branch Lodge to anyone, but more especially families. Top Notch people and lodge.

Lovely cabin! The perfect place for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We took a one of our volunteer teams for a weekend retreat with their spouses and this cabin (along with another one of the owner's cabin's in Maggie Valley, NC) was the perfect fit for what we needed! Lots of space, beautiful view, close to Soco Falls and some local shopping. It was perfect! The customer service with reservations was second to none. The process could not have been smoother or the people more pleasant to work with! Top notch! Highly recommended!

Beautiful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This was an opportunity to get a much needed mom break! We enjoyed the cabin so much! All the amenities, the fire place, the VIEW (ah-mazing!), and the cozy feel of nature all around! There was enough space for all of us and we didn't feel crowded at all! Well worth the trip!!
