We came up to enjoy the mountains and a Balsam Range concert in Canton. Wonderful house, beautiful view and great fellowship with friends. Thank you!!
Firstly, our hosts/owners were very friendly, helpful and a pleasure to work with...they always responded quickly and were extremely patient in helping us find our way up the mountain our first time up! Don stayed on the phone with us and "guided" us all the way up. It is quite a trek up the mountain the first couple of times but it got easier each time and by the end of our stay we were pros at maneuvering the trail! The home is gorgeous and the views were among the most beautiful we have ever seen. We really enjoyed our time on the deck, cooking out, etc. The beds were extra-comfy, the kitchen was fabulous, and the water pressure was very good. The location was close to Waynesville (about 25 min.), I-40 (about 15 min.), GSMNP and the elk preserve (about 25 min.), and the Blue Ridge Parkway is nearby, also. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to returning in the future. The only thing we would have changed would be to have a TV in the "gathering" area on the main floor...it would have been nice to cozy up by the fireplace and watch some movies, etc. Thank you once again, Don and Kathryn, for your wonderful hospitality!
This home was perfect for what we were seeking. Kids and grandkids came and went with plenty of room. The view from the numerous decks was absolutely spectacular. Inside the 3 MBs are huge, kitchen well equipped and the stone fireplace was huge and held great fires. Waynesville and the surrounding area had plenty to do including some very good restaurants. The drive up the mountain to the house is a little daunting the first time but as the guy who delivered the crib said, "it's easy compared to some I have to drive". We will certainly try to get back.
We recently visited Elk View with 3 other couples. The verdict was unanimous; we all agreed we'd love to go back! The house was absolutely beautiful, immaculate with a state of the art kitchen including everything one would possibly need to prepare an upscale meal, beautiful bedrooms with very comfortable beds, AMAZING decks for viewing GOD'S CREATION and just a WONDERFUL setting in which to refuel, replenish the spirit and celebrate friendship!!! Each time I spoke with owner Don I felt we were old friends:). We all gave this property "super stars," WELL worth the "climb" to get there!!!!
We stayed for the entire week and didn't want to leave. Once we got up to the house, the view was amazing, getting up every morning and seeing the wonderful view with a cup of coffee on the deck made you feel like you just were in another dream world. We visited the surrounding area, Waynesville is a great little town, it had great restaurants, great artwork, and we even saw the elk , both the bull and female were out when we visited. Great experience!!! We really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, being able to lay back and red, cook, eat, and enjoy family, take daily walks with the dogs and kids. even "smelled" what we thought we some bear "leftovers" along the way, at least my dog thought so???? We will be coming back, that ids for sure... Can't get enough of a place like this... Just don't want to let too much of a good thing out so everyone catches on to how great it was...
This was by far one of the most incredible homes with views that simply took my breath away. As others have shared, be forewarned that the gravel road to the property was more than intimidating for those of us who aren't used to navigating mountains. However we got used to it right away. Don is super nice and super helpful, and I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a perfect secluded getaway above the clouds.
The trek up the mountain caused us all to be very nervous the first time we drove up, but once we arrived at the top we saw amazing views from a very secluded setting., but is located within an hour or two drive to most of the attractions the area has to offer. The house was very well equipped with more than we would ever have needed. Everything in the house was newer and in great condition. Plenty of room for all of us, the lower level game room was a wonderful space for family time. The decks offered a place to relax and take in the views while watching the wildlife. We saw so many hummingbirds. Don was great to deal with. Always available to answer questions and make recommendations of local restaurants and attractions. He even held us find out what channel the Cleveland cavs game was going to be on. This house was more than we expected and would stay in again. We highly recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in the area.
Lots of hiking trails from the property to explore the Great Smoky Mountains!
