Owner's Response: Dear Perry, Hello and Thank You so much for taking the time to submit this 5 star review for Smoky Mountain Dawn. I agree with you, it is a bit of an adventure driving up the hill to the cabin the first time. You don't get views like that in the valley... The beautiful cabin and Views out to Clingman's Dome in the Smokies are completely worth it! I hope you and your Mother enjoyed the cabin and the area. You are welcome back anytime!

GREAT place to stay. ( mainly adults )

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place for adults to get away from the city life and enjoy the beautiful mountain view and fresh air. The cabin is big enough for one or two couples. A very nice romantic master bedroom and shower down stairs await you. The listing for this cabin is pretty correct. Be sure to arrive before sunset.....a very interesting drive UP a mountain side that is exciting to drive. ALL wheel drive or 4 wheel drive is recommended. Take your time. All I can say is: WOW. Bryson City is not too far away. Highly recommend a Italian restaurant: PASQUALINO'S. We are booking again next year 2017 already. Unfortunately for us, NC had several fires while we were there so there was a lot of smoke hanging in the air. Wasn't too bad but we missed out on a beautiful view.

Owner's Response: Dear Michael, Thank You so much for the wonderful review of Smoky Mountain Dawn! I am happy to say that you are in for a real treat when you arrive this summer (already confirmed your 2017 reservation)! Not only did we escape fire damage, the controlled burning of the underbrush they did last year has created an amazing spring blooming of the bushes and flowering plants! Everything is beautiful, and the area wildlife is really enjoying the "all they can eat buffet" of tender foliage that has grown in! Kathleen - Property Manager

We stayed at Smokey Mountain Dawn for a week. The views were so great that we actually spent a part of that time not leaving and just enjoying this lovely mountain home. The home is decorated with love and comfort in mind. It was a home away from home.

Beautiful home, elegant yet comfortable. This cabin is truly the best of all worlds.

  • 5 of 5

Home is in a beautiful setting. There is a cabin right next to it which at first I thought objectionable but in realty never bothered me in the least. The cabin was very clean and well furnished and stocked with all necessities with the exception of food. Located in a convenient spot. Close to town yet secluded. Bryson City offers many attractions and the smokey mountain national forest with all the hiking and water fun right there

Rental agent was very helpful and friendly.

Highly recommend this cabin and area

A wonderful vacation getaway

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I had an outstanding 7-night stay. We did have a neighbor in the chalet next door, but rarely saw them and they were never an issue at all. The views are absolutely stunning, especially in the early morning when the valleys are covered in fog. The master bedroom was perfect. The shower in the master bedroom was completely luxurious. The kitchen was very well stocked. In fact, we didn't eat out the entire time and never felt like we were missing something from our home kitchen.

Our primary interest outside of relaxing was hiking and the Smoky Mountain trails did not disappoint at all. There is a trail for every skill level and interest. If hiking isn't your thing, there is a activity for every age or interest less than 30 minutes away.

The manager was very responsive. On day 2 both air conditioners stopped working. Kathleen immediately sent a technician to repair the problem.

All the positives aside, there were some small issues.

** I'm pretty certain that we were the first visitors in a few weeks as there was a significant film in the toilet and hot tub. A note had been left about hard water stains, but the toilet cleaned up (mostly) with a simple brushing and the hot tub could be wiped off with my hand. I would suggest that, when the unit has been left empty for an extended period, a cleaning person be sent for a quick touchup.

** The quality of the internet service is very poor. It alternated between brief periods of exceptional service, followed by long periods of extremely slow updates. I'm sure this is a result of the internet service provider, but this was a working vacation and was made more difficult by the poor internet service.

** We brought DVDs to watch. None of the DVD players were connected to the TV, so I had to switch the cables between the satellite box and DVD player every time we wanted to watch a DVD. Only a minor annoyance.

** The bottom of the gas grill is missing. After grilling steaks one night I reached under to shut off the gas and discovered that the propane tank was very hot. This should be repaired as it may become dangerous.

These minor issues aside, Smoky Mountain Dawn is a wonderful property and I strongly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Hello and Thank You so much for taking the time to write this accurate review of Smoky Mountain Dawn! We just love those views as well. A recent Guest described the Mountain Views as "energizing", and that is the same feeling I get every time I sit on that deck! Smoky Mountain Dawn cabin was completely remodeled, less than 2 years ago (including the stainless kitchen appliances, cabinets, granite counters, and all 3 bathrooms), so it is rare that anything does not function properly. Thankfully, our technician was able to restore your air conditioning (zone heating and cooling via 2 separate units), within 30 minutes, and on a Holiday weekend no less! You are correct, the cabin had been empty for 3 days prior to your arrival, and the "film" you mentioned (hot tub cover, not inside the tub) is pollen, which accumulates quickly at that time of the season. I sent my housekeeper to freshen the cabin for your arrival, but she got there at 12:00 Noon, and you had already checked in. Had I known, I would have sent her earlier. Please accept my sincere apologies. I sent our maintenance man to inspect the grill, and the drip pan was missing, which is why the tank warmed up. It has been replaced and Thank You for letting us know. Don't forget to ask me for your repeat Guest discount (offered to Guests that check out in good standing), to apply to your next reservation!

Nestled away above everything!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home located high up a mountain with a wonderful view, a very romantic setting for the latter part of mine and my husband's honeymoon. You feel far away from any hustle and bustle, but it is still a short drive to the highway for all of your adventures. Our stay was in late October and the colors were beautiful, so we did a lot of driving. One afternoon, we drove down Hwy 28 to Franklin, then drove back up Wayah Road, stopping along the way at the Wayah Knob lookout tower. On another day, we made a giant loop through the Tail of the Dragon into Tennessee and came back down the Cherohala Skyway, going on a hike at Huckleberry Knob. We spent another day driving through the Great Smoky Mountain National Forest to Pigeon Forge, where there are MANY, MANY beautiful places to stop along the way - like the view at Clingman's Dome or the Alum Cave trail (we saw peregrine falcons last time we went), and go to the alpine coaster in Pigeon Forge! The home was a very welcoming place to return to each evening, and the furniture is very comfortable. The downstairs masters suite is HUGE with a king size bed, plush sitting area, fireplace, TV, hot tub and a very large shower! Very romantic! This home is wonderful for families as well as there are bathrooms for each of the three bedrooms, and everything needed was provided. I would highly recommend this wonderful setting for a perfect mountain getaway!
