Exceeds Expectations....comfortable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We come to the area several times a year. We came with 2 boys and our dog. We could not have asked for a better place. We added a day on the front and the owners let us have a late check out. Close to skiing, Waynesville. Great for our family of 4. Great kitchen, bedrooms, laundry facility. Relax on front or back porch. Great entertainment tv games, pool table and nightime light surprise. Best homeaway experience so far.

Beautiful and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the Pinecone. It was peaceful, but close enough to everything that I wanted to see. The house itself was beautiful and cozy. We liked watching the goldfish in the ponds. But our favorite thing to do was to sit on the front porch and watch the ‘firefly lights’. I would definitely stay there again.
