Pros and Cons

  • 2 of 5

The cabin itself is nice, but there were definite negatives during our trip. I will just list pros and cons here.

Pros:

Well equipped kitchen

Views when you could see past a few feet

Room to have privacy

Nice master bath

Cons:.

Very difficult to locate when traveling from out of state. It doesn't GPS and even when you locate the road to turn down the sign is very small. Needs better markers for out of town visitors especially who aren't familiar with the area.

Don't visit in October as the area was extremely foggy and damp. We were limited to certain times of the day when we could travel down the mountain. The porch was wet most of the time making it difficult to enjoy the outdoor seating. I realize there is no control over certain weather conditions, but after asking locals in the area they said the thick fog is a usual occurrence in the area. It would have been nice to know this. We would not have booked a stay in a cabin like this in this area had we known it would have been difficult to enjoy the views we paid for and hard to drive to and from. Some days it didn't let up until 2 in the afternoon.

There is water damage in the corners and on the floor by the bed in the master bedroom as well as on the ceiling from leaks.

There were spider webs with live spiders in them in the bedroom I slept in.

The living room furniture looks nice but is not comfortable as it is old and seems broken down.

The cleaning fees are high especially considering the fact we had to haul all our garbage and linens down to the basement.

The TV in the master bedroom plays the same channels the living room TV plays at the same time.

The bed frame in the master bedroom is too big for the bed making it difficult to get out of the bed without the bar from the frame hitting the back of the legs when getting up.

Overall it served it's purpose for visiting family in the area, but even they had to leave before dark due to thick fog and limited parking.

We left early and went to a hotel for the remainder of our visit. I personally would not stay here again.

Owner's Response: Kristi, I appreciate your review and am concerned about several of your comments. As much as I would like to control the weather, unfortunately that is not possible. When in the mountains, it happens that fog can roll in and out., anytime. However, October is one of the best and most beautiful months to stay in Fancy Gap. ( This year was affected by the hurricane. ) Fog is usually not a problem. Florida is quite different. I take pride in offering my cabin for rent on VRBO in excellent condition.. The exterminator had been there 2 weeks ago, so any insects were under control. A cobweb can form anytime in a log cabin. The sofa had a new cushion last year. There is satillite for TV reception (no cable available) so there is one receiver for both TVS. Most cabins only have one. I believe you mentioned that your Mother, who stayed in the master bedroom, had a walker. I imagine it was difficult for her to get in and out of the bed since she is handicapped. Both the frame and mattress are King size and it has never been suggested as a problem. There are a few pieces of discolored wood in the corner and I am curious as how that affected your stay? An overwatered plant.... I have no knowledge of ceiling leaks, only knots on the wood. I know you were frustrated you could not find the cabin. I sent directions, ( as well as they are listed on VRBO) before your stay. Some GPS work, others do not. After guiding you to the cabin, per your phone call, you recognizezd you had missed the turn. The parking amenities are listed on VRBO and what to do to park 4 cars. Also, I am curious how much you think the cleaning fee should be? Please let me know if you have any other concerns. I am always interested in knowing how I can make things better. Best, Lynette

Lovely cabin in Fancy Gap

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was just lovely - the perfect place to meet and enjoy our friends. The cabin is spacious, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked. The view from the large back porch is simply breathtaking. We enjoyed hiking, golfing, shopping, and exploring nearby towns. This was a very peaceful place in which to relax and unwind.

Everything is perfect.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful and so is the view. All was just as advertised with no disappointments whatsoever. What a goegeous master suite and great room. We made the 30 minute trip down the Parkway to have a late lunch at Mabry Mill. Also a great choice. The only thing that could have made our stay at this cabin better would have been to stay another day.

Great Trip Back Home

  • 5 of 5

Mom and Dad owned a shop and lived in Fancy Gap area for 30 years. Mom lost Dad last year and wanted to go back home for a visit. The Parkway and the mountains view was what drew and kept them in the area. The cabin just off the Parkway with the amazing view was perfect. Close enough to visit some of her favorite spots, then a quick trip back to retreat to the porch view for an evening of laughing, remembering, and sharing her story with my daughter and I. Mom asked me to say Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

Beautiful home and view! Had some issues in the home that owner can correct. I thought the owner could have been quicker to respond to my questions. Would consider staying there again.
