5 Star Cabin!!!

  • 3 of 5

This is a 5 star cabin, but a 3 star home in Lake Junaluska.

Let me explain. The Red Cabin, does not claim to be a luxurious home. It's a "cabin"...It's in the name. My family and I have rented nicer places around Lake Junaluska, but this has been our favorite. It is cozy (on the smaller side) but very comfortable. We loved not being spread out in a large home. We actually all sat together and got to spend quality time. We played board games (all provided), and sat outside by the private fire pit. We grilled out every night and ate around the large dining table (comfortably seats 6-8 people).

The upstairs is nice, but the downstairs needs a little TLC, as it is a little campy. However, downstairs would be perfect if you have teenagers that want their own space, but I would not recommend it for adults (unless you a fine with a space that is a little rough around the edges). The bed downstairs is a full bed and the shower is in bad shape. My wife and I ended up using the one upstairs.

Courtney, the owner, was great!!! Even refunded 1/2 of our cleaning fee b/c there was some confusion during check-in with the cleaning service.

Plenty of parking (enough for 4 cars), but the driveway is steep.

Kitchen is stocked nicely for about 6 people, and charcoal grill is available for use.

Fire pit is great! There was plenty of wood, and hanging garden lights set the mood.

This place was awesome and we would definitely rent here again! Sorry if the 3 stars to this review is confusing, but it is simply based on how it compares to other houses in the area. If the downstairs was updated and a little more usable I would have no problem giving it 5 stars. If your looking for something fancy this place isn't for you, but if you want a cozy private cabin, you won't be disappointed.

In closing, if you are a family with teenage kids, this place is perfect. If you, your significant other and another couple (with or without kids) are looking for a place to stay, this place is perfect. If you and 2-3 other couples are looking for a place for the weekend, I would look elsewhere (as one of you will end up in the basement and feel slighted on your accommodations compared to the other two rooms).

Hope this helps!

Red Cabin stay

  • 4 of 5

The Red Cabin worked out beautifully for our family. The split space (upstairs and downstairs) provided additional privacy and another relaxing area. The space was clean and beds comfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped . . . a real plus for us since we like to cook. We particularly loved the sunroom where each evening we gathered to open the windows, sit in the comfy chairs, and play games. It was especially nice that disposables like tissue, dishwashing soap, and laundry items were available and plentiful. It felt more like visiting someone's home than renting a cabin and we have already given information on renting it to several friends.

We love the Red Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We immensely enjoyed our stay at the Red Cabin. The cabin was adorable and comfortable, with a peaceful ambiance. This cabin was well cleaned and is clearly well cared for by the owners. It is very close to downtown Waynesville, but located in a peaceful neighborhood just blocks away from Lake Junaluska. Our favorite feature was the peaceful front porch and fire pit. The owners have thoughtfully stocked their cabin with anything a vacationer may need while away from home. The Red Cabin was the highlight of our vacation, and we will always stay there when we visit the area. I also found this cabin to be priced at one of the lowest rates in the area. We absolutely loved the Red Cabin and cherish our time there. See you again, Red Cabin!!

Wonderful weekend stay!

  • 5 of 5

Very cute cottage close to downtown Waynesville, which was great for eating and shopping! Loved the ambiance of the fireplace and cozy feel of it all and the privacy of downstairs apartment if needed! Lived the firepit outside too! Driveway is a bit steep so if going in bad weather you might need 4 wheel drive or to park on street. Everything you need is there, even board games for the kids! Could have used another hour at check out to consider washing and drying all towels and sheets before leaving. That was a bit tough to fit in by departure time. All in all, it was a great place to stay and we really enjoyed it! Thanks Courtney!

Love the Little Red Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The Little Red Cabin is the perfect spot! Tucked down a hill and surrounded by trees, yet close to everything wanted and needed. We appreciated all the info and tips provided by the owners for fun things to do…whether hiking, walking, shopping, sightseeing, reading a book by the fire (inside or outside), restaurants, etc. The cabin is spacious and well stocked and clean! The perfect spot for us 4 gals on a get-away and would be great for a family too! With the downstairs apartment, it gave us plenty of room to spread out for privacy. Loved every moment!
