About Pam and Patrick
My husband and I are teachers in Florida hoping to retire to Western NC. I have been coming to this area for most of my life with my family and when my husband also fell in love we decided to start spending part of our time off here. Since we love traveling we can not afford to just have it sitting empty, lucky for those that happen to stumble across our wonderful little place.
Pam and Patrick purchased this Cabin in 2015
Why Pam and Patrick chose Whittier
We remodeled a cabin about 20 minutes west of here and began renting as a vacation cabin in 2015 (VRBO#728604). It was so successful that we found ourselves without a place to stay during the summer. So we began our search for the perfect spot for another cabin close to all of the activities. We found it in Elk Ridge. We completely remodeled it over the past year and are looking forward to sharing it with other families coming to the beautiful Smoky Mountain National Park and surrounding areas for vacation. If you're looking for an "in town" house, check our Murphy NC rental (VRBO#1148238).
What makes this Cabin unique
It's location minutes from the GSMNP, Whittier (Smoky Mountain & Sequoyah Golf Courses) and Cherokee with it's unique attractions (Harrah's casino, top entertainment, Unto these Hills). Also, 10-20 minutes from other quaint mountain towns such as Bryson City, Sylva, and Dillsboro for restaurants, shopping, and festivals and farmer's markets. 30-45 minutes from Waynesville, Maggie Valley, Franklin and 1hour from Asheville. It is so close to the Park that deer and elk regularly show up on our property. Feels rural but not isolated, close to everything. Sit on the deck and watch the sun set behind the mountains.

Snyder 's getaway
The cabin was beautiful and provided our family a quiet, rustic place to relax when we were done fishing, tubing, and shopping. The inside had clean bathrooms, bedrooms, and floors. The windows were quite dirty and there were cobwebs inside and on the deck around light fixtures. There was a yellow jacket nest on the deck as well. It was great that it was complete with a grill and supplies in the kitchen as we enjoy cooking. Unfortunately, the town of Cherokee did not have good selections of restaurants. We loved the local fishing and ability to see elk and turkey in town daily. Communication with marge was easy and she was helpful in allowing us to enter early which we truly appreciated! We would rent this again given the opportunity.
Whittier and Bryson City Trip
My wife, 2 daughters and Labrador retriever had a wonderful stay in the Elk Ridge cabin. We stayed for 3 night just before the 4th of July. I'll be brief:
The location was wonderful
The cabin was beautifully decorated
Everything was in working order
All appliances and bathrooms were in top modern shape
Lots of space for a family of 4
The property is on a hill so there is extremely limited space for kids and dog to run around.
The driveway up the hill could be difficult for cautious or inexperienced drivers.
The Air Conditioning was limited at best. We were there during a very hot time of year. The AC is an electrical unit in the main sitting room. It didn't cool off the bedrooms. We eventually just turned it off and slept very warm. There were ceiling fans in all rooms which made the heat tolerable.
Overall we had a wonderful stay. The location was ideal for all GSMNP and Fontana Lake excursions. The price was very reasonable for the amenities provided.
We enjoyed staying at elk ridge cabin, it was very quiet and peaceful. It was just a short drive to many hiking trails and outdoor activities. would definitely recommend it.
Perfect little cabin
Great property, location and stay. Very clean and cozy.
Very nice property. Would rent again.
We totally enjoyed ourselves. Would recommend it to anyone. Just realize there a scary abandoned trailer across the way.
Great place to stay!
This property was so clean and the perfect space for our family of four. We felt secluded, but were close to everything we wanted to do. Highly recommend this cabin!
