Guestbook comments from the owner

Today is Ed's birthday and we could not have found a better place to spend it than right here at "Serenity on Cedar".



I had either forgotten or possibly never heard what it is like to experience stillness, calmness, quiet time like we have here. "Serenity" is a perfect way to describe the feeling that we experienced.



I loved waking up and seeing the fog over the mountains cross the lake. We watched the wind blow across the water and enjoyed the sounds of the water running down the creekbed beside of the cabin.



For several years I have wanted to spend a weekend away in a log cabin in the mountains, but the opportunity never presented itself until now. This has been a wonderful place and time beyond what I had imagined. Normally when we travel, we drive around and check out all the local sites. Staying here at Serenity on Cedar leaves me with no desire to look any place further. There just cannot possibly be anything better or more to see than is right here.



We thank you for sharing this beautiful place with us.

serenity on cedar

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was more than we expected. The different levels made it very private for the family to be together.

Everything was provided for cooking and they had a lot of board games for enjoyment.

The cabin was very clean and lake was beautiful.

I will go back and try it out in the summer months as well!

Serenity was just that!

  • 5 of 5

Serenity was the perfect family vacation! The home was beautiful and clean. The views were amazing, even witnessed a bald eagle fly across the lake. Situated close to Sylva and a short drive to Cashiers and Highlands (only an hour from Asheville). We had a memorable, relaxing week! Would love to return in the future.

Beautiful Views!

  • 5 of 5

Views of the lake were amazing. Cabin was very clean and welcoming. We used the kayaks every day and had fun swimming and jumping off the docks. Great for our family get together. Would definitely come back.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Serenity. The house was so clean and comfortable. The view is beautiful and very relaxing. We all enjoyed the kayaks daily and felt like we had the lake all to ourselves. Over the years we have rented many homes and this was by far the best!
