    This house was perfect for our family. My husband and I have 2 teenage kids. We were able to do our activities in the morning, then return to use the swimming pond in the afternoon. It was wonderful. Very clean, beautiful, comfortable. My son was able to fish...and catch a lot. We were able to relax in a lawn chair or the floats. Perfect. It was just a short walk down a quiet street. Loved it!!!

    Place was pretty clean, could use some dusting on the high areas. I was surprised with the lack of bugs in the cabin, I've rented many cabins before and usually alot get in (you're in a forest it happens). We did have a power issue the second night it ended up being a power company issue ( luckily I'm an electrician and was able to help deligate the situation). Some of the appliances and lights burned up because of the power issue and they brought over new appliances and light bulbs right away and did what they could. They answered every phone call right away and kept in touch with updates. I would definitely rent from them again. It is exactly how they described

    The property is beautiful, nestled between these enormous forest trees and wrapped around by mountains and nature. It's a 20 to 25 mins drive to Bryson city, where you can get a lot of activities, like going to deep creek water falls Smokey Mountains for swimming/tubing, relaxing in the picnic area, museum, train ride through the mountains etc. There's plenty of food places like local dessert and coffee places/gas stations too including a Walgreens if I remember correctly. Right across the property on the main highway, you can also rent pontoon boat to take a trip in lake Fontana too. Be careful as the approach to the place is very rough with huge bumps (I'd recommend an. SUV/Truck) for going there. The only thing I can say is that the cleanliness, while good, could have been better in terms of the spider webs. All in all, I highly recommend the place if you have a family of 3 to 4 people, love nature, and you just want to unplug and get away from the crazy city life.

    We chose this property because of its proximity to Bryson City and the Great Smoky Mtn. Railroad. The remote-controlled fireplace was a very nice touch, since we had cold nights (even in April). A dog crate is also kept in the laundry room, which made packing easier for us. Overall, this was a nice place for our 2-night stay, and kept us pretty close to Bryson City for our train ride.

    The house and location is nice. There is an inverter heater in the living room. The only source of heat in two of the three bedrooms is one space heater to share. There is an electric fireplace in the third bedroom. No heat in either bathroom unless you take the space heater in there with you. If you are sensitive to the cold or have elderly parents as I do, then this is not the place for you unless it's during the summer months.

    Great property set in the wooded area. Nice greenery. comfy houses with plenty of spaces for all 4 of houses. Sure wouldn't mind making a return trip. Just two things to be aware of ... Our AT&T phones just does function It gets NO signal at all around this area (I would 15 square miles_. So make sure you contact the owner for the house key way before you arrived. The phone signal is way better when you arrived in the Byrson city area. Also, it may be a little challenging going up the slope of the driveway to the house. It's OK the first day when it's not too wet; but when it get wet (we have 6 hours of start & stop rain), it took us quite some try before we managed to get my car up/

    The chalet, cabin, was absolutely wonderful. Very clean and little personal touches. Loved the upper deck when it wasn't raining. It was in the lower 30's when we arrived. Wrapped up and sat on the deck. Made use of the fireplace inside. Made it very cozy. We were able to get out and explore. Everything is within driving distance. The first turn into the driveway was a little hairy the first time with a Ford F150 truck but we soon figured that out. Beautiful scenery. The trees were starting to turn and that's one reason we came. Loved everything. Marge was the sweetest and was quick to respond to my texts and she even told us how to bypass Atlanta altogether. A little over 7 hour trip turned into a little over 10 hour trip because of Atlanta. Heading back to Florida. I just want to thank you for sharing your little piece of Heaven with us.

    This place was the perfect spot for our family of 5 plus my in-laws. They even approved so that’s a big deal. It’s not far from Gatlinburg but because of the winding roads and park, it does take longer to get there. We were so excited to arrive that we totally forgot to go food shopping. However, Bryson City wasn’t far away at all and there is a very large grocery store there so it worked out perfect. Will definitely recommend and look forward to going back.

    We booked this entirely by accident but it ended up being a wonderful mistake. The home is 100x prettier than the pictures. We got in super late because the weather turned a 6 hour drive into a 12 hour drive so I’d say that’s the only downside was that we didn’t have enough time there and that in rained half the time. The little lake was perfect and super close and the trails were easy to find. ❤️ We would highly recommend this home.

    My family(my husband, two girls, my mother and father) came to enjoy some family time and celebrate my dad's 71st birthday. The cabin was rustic but with new appliances and all the amenities we needed to enjoy our stay. The yard is very small, but there is a beautiful pond, and field within walking distance from the cabin. It was cold, but still beautiful and quiet. There were plenty of movies and games in the cabin. So we enjoyed our family time even when it rained part of the day. The cabin was fully stocked with all necessities needed. So we only had to buy food. The cabinets were even stocked with coffee, tea sugar, salt pepper and even seasonings. We had brought everything we needed to cook with, but it was nice that it was there if we ran out of anything. All in all we had a very peaceful and enjoyable stay. Thank you, we would stay again. Maybe in the summer, so we could enjoy more than the beauty of the pond. Thank you again. The Miller's and The Myer's, from Palm Bay Fl.

    As you can see we have rented many homes from different states. We have never been accused of leaving a home in disarray. That is not who we are. We rented this cabin two times...….we only wanted it once...that was a scam in itself from the owners. Both times they kept our deposit saying things were broken or our dogs peed up the place. We had to clean the frig when we got there making me think someone did not check between renters and we were accused of someone else mess. Very discouraged and will never stay there again. No dishwasher either.

The house is equipped with everything you need, there is a fire pit and a bbq outside. I personally loved the deck facing the mountains, there is fireplace inside the house and a heater in most of the rooms, there is also a washer and drier. There is WIFI, which you will definitely need since there is no reception in these mountains. Pam and Patrick (owners) always replied within minutes everytime I had a question. We will be back. I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND IT

    Cabin was very nice and convenient. Had everything we needed for an enjoyable weekend. Downstairs bed was very comfy and loved the gas logs in the den. Enjoyed sitting by the fire pit and making s’mores! Also enjoyed fishing in the nearby pond even though we didn’t catch anything. Would highly recommend this cabin.

    A wonderful place in a great location. Very quiet and peaceful. Cabin was very clean and well maintained. We brought motorcycles on 2 trailers and had to park the trailers on the lower driveway, but had no issues. The main driveway to the house is a bit tricky, especially on a motorcycle. It is a gravel driveway with a sharp right turn and a fairly steep hill from the road up to the house, but as long as you're careful you should be ok. Would recommend a pop up canopy if you have motorcycles because there is no covered parking. Would definitely recommend the Hummingbird Hideaway and we hope to go back again very soon!

    House had updates that made it clean and comfortable. Most everything we needed was included. Grille was a little small for our group as was fire pit. But we enjoyed both.Was about 15 minutes to boat dock and 10 minutes to bike trails, 20 to Grocery store in Bryson city.. Could not see pond from house with tree growth . Pond was not well kept and would likely not be safe for swimming. Cabin was well managed and we plan to try and return during cooler time of year

    We found the owners very kind and attentive. The cabin was fresh, clean and well appointed .

    Hummingbird Cabin was a great location for our family vacation aimed at being near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The cabin is lovely, clean and very well stocked. It has a nice combination of rustic charm and modern cleanliness. The bathrooms were particularly lovely and seemed newly redone. I brought along a few kitchen items most of our past VRBOs didn't have and they were all already there. We did a lot of water activities (river tubing, whitewater rafting, diving off a rented pontoon and swimming in the pond) , so it was really helpful to wash our wet, dirty towels in the washer and dryer at the end of the day. The small pond up the road was great fun for all of us to swim in. Our boys (ages 9 and 10) loved jumping off the dock and swimming. My husband tried a bit of fishing. And even our dog went swimming in the pond. We ate all our meals outside on the nice deck. There are a few homes nearby, but we rarely encountered anyone while walking the dog or swimming in the pond. It is about a 25 minute drive into Bryson City, 30 minutes to tubing in Deep Creek, 35 minutes to Cherokee and 40 minutes to the closest Visitors Center in the National Park (Oconaluftee). We would gladly return.

    Very nice

    The Hummingbird Hideaway was perfect for our family of five for a short trip in late July. The house is very comfortable with lots of room inside and outside. The location is close to the Nantahala Outdoor Center which has lots of family activities and Bryson City which is an up and coming tourist destination. The driveway up to the house is a little tricky as you have to make a sharp right turn in a narrow area although you can drive past the driveway, turn around and drive straight up. There's a cool little lake within walking distance of the house which is part of the Tobacco Road development where we went fishing a couple of times.

    Peaceful, relaxing, and all we needed

    We loved our stay at the Hummingbird Hideaway! We arrived and found the home to be clean, well stocked with towels and furnishings, and had all the kitchen features we needed. While there is not central air, the window units in the 2 bedrooms and kitchen were sufficient to help with the summer heat. The community is wonderful! Quiet and peaceful in the mornings and evenings for dinners and coffee on the deck - which boasts a great view of the mountains. We found local activities such as a rope swing in Fontana lake, tubing in the Cherokee nation area, horseback riding and waterfall exploring. Each night, coming back to the Hummingbird to cook our own meals and spend time together as a family. This was a wonderful stay! If we vacation in NC again, we'll definitely consider coming back to the Hummingbird!

    Thanks so much for sharing your cabin. It was in close proximity to all the things we had planned to do- Tsali biking trails, Bryson City, and hiking. Nicely furnished and stocked with everyday items you may need for cooking. My little one loved that there were flashlights everywhere, which was very helpful at night time walking of the dogs. Also, LOVED that there was a kennel provided for us to put the dogs up while we were away so it eased the mind of them causing any issues. Really loved the location, made it a very nice get away from hustle of everyday! You guys have put a lot of charm into this cabin.

    The best HURRICANE escape ever!! We had to flee from Florida to avoid Irma. The care and compassion given to us was immeasurable. There were 8 of us and it accommodated us well. Marge even made us the yummiest muffins (gluten free, no less!) Everything was clean and tidy. The beds and sheets were soooo comfy :) (We always travel with our own pillows and blankets) The pictures really don't do it justice. The attention to detail is really sweet. The pond is just across the road and my boys fished for 3 days! The hiking is amazing. You gotta do the 'Gazebo hike'. STAY ON THE PAVED ROAD!! It was hard but well worth the view at the top. Bring water. I highly recommend Pascualino's. It's the best Italian food in the west :)

    My husband and I spent a weekend here with our dog, and wish we could've stayed longer... We would love to come back again in the future! The hosts were very communicative and responsive for booking, arrival, etc. You can tell they care about this property and the experience of their guests. Even if you're not bringing pets, have no worries--this cabin is impeccably clean and maintained, and very cute. The Nantahala National Forest has beautiful trails nearby to take advantage of, but we were also quite content enjoying the beautiful surroundings from their deck/porch... If you plan on cooking, bring your own salt/pepper, spices, oil, etc. Otherwise, as for cooking utensils, the only thing we were missing was a cutting board! Check out was 10:00 on Sunday morning, which did limit us a little bit in taking full advantage of the last hours of our weekend getaway. We didn't ask to extend the check out time. I believe the owners would have been as accommodating as possible to any requests. And again, we appreciated how spotless the cabin was when we arrived so wanted to honor any time needed to clean for the next guests! Hope to be back!! Thank you for having us, and providing a much needed peaceful retreat...

    Perfect getaway.

So glad we booked this cabin as it was the perfect location - just about 20 minutes from downtown Bryson City and perfect for 2 small families! It rained while we were here so we didn't get to explore the surroundings, but the nearby pond looked like it would be the perfect spot to explore during the Spring and Summer!

    Cabin was very clean and ready for us. Although this rental was a tad on the higher spectrum of cleaning fees from other rental options, I can say the money is well spent. Least my wife was impressed, so you know that speaks volumes - good job owners! It is also noteworthy that the cabin has undergone recent renovations, so this means you'll benefit from new faucets, fixtures, etc... Liked the laminate flooring all throughout and interior decor/theme. Everything works - all appliances, water supply, stove, refrigerator, high-tech washer/dry - it all works, thus offering that worry-free vacation we all desire. Internet : it was a deciding factor for us, being on AT&T, we knew cell service was out for us up front, thus it was great to have Internet to FaceTime, and Skype, and iMessage. The Sat-TV was a plus as well. Some other notable things …. I liked the LED flashlights placed throughout the cabin - that's a thoughtful touch. There is a covered lower outdoor deck in case the weather is wet, and and upper outdoor deck for those beautiful days. Area is very quite and a good view. Small fire pit below. The packed gavel driveway grade is average for these parts, and it's just off a fully paved road and not bad to drive up/down - no 4x4 needed, a basic car can make it just fine. Yet because there is one hard-right mid-way up, those whom are trailering may not be ideal. Over all very pleased with our stay, and would surely rent this cabin again in the future.
