Worth the money!

  • 4 of 5

The house was nice. There were a few cosmetics but nothing that would affect your vacation. The drive way is very steep. You will definitely get your work out if walking down to the lake. The lake is down the road a little ways. There is a paddle boat that was accessible on the lake, but be sure to look for spiders as big as your hand before getting in. The house doesn't have central air but has 4 air conditioners that kept the place nice and cool if not too cool. Great water pressure in the showers. I was surprised with spices, flour, sugar, and some groceries that was in the house. There are plenty of dishes, pots, pans, silverware and cooking utensils. You will not need to bring anything but groceries for your stay. We went horseback riding which is just the horses following the trails at a slow pace (nothing adventurous), white water rafting (beware that you might be dropped off just before a level 3 rapid so hang on to your paddle and your raft), and the train ride in Bryson City was nice but a little on the expensive side. The Biltmore is about an hour away and pretty costly. If you make reservations a week before you can get a discounted rate and it will take you the biggest part of the day to see everything there. Cherokee has a play called "Unto the Hills" which is about the trail of tears. Its a very nice outdoor theater. There were many stairs. There were plenty of unreserved seats which cost about $20 and you can sit anywhere outside of the reserved seating and the seats are just as good. Reserved seating cost $23. It was a good relaxing vacation and would definitely stay here again.

On Golden Pond was adequate for our needs! Beautiful area.

  • 4 of 5

Our time was a great get away from the busyness of everyday life. We were able to go tubing, whitewater rafting, fishing, and swimming very conviently from On Golden Pond. Kids loved the pond. The mountians are beautiful! Hot tub was fantastic after a busy day of activities.

Quiet mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at on Golden Pond! The house was clean, comfortable and cozy - the kitchen has anything and everything you need to cook meals. The set up was great for the family - the kids had their own downstairs retreat. There are many games and tons of books to read. So many things to do and see in the area! We enjoyed the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad, whitewater rafting and zip lining at Nantahala Outdoor Center, fishing in the pond, hiking, seeing the Elk just outside of Bryson City, visiting the Fontana Dam and the Biltmore Estate. We also took a wonderful day trip to Waynesville - what a great little town! Too much nearby to see in one week! Darnell Farms had huge cantaloupe and delicious blackberries and strawberries. I would definitely recommend On Golden Pond!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home with enough room fornoit family of 6 people to play games, make meals and enjoy the area. We took day trips to Asheville and Franklin as well as visited the wonderful ladies as Wehrloom Honey and Yellow Branch Pottery and Cheese. We also went to a quaint family owned farm--Sleepy Hollow Farm--picked our own strawberries.

Beautiful NC home

We had a great stay @ On Golden Pond. The home was beautifully decorated, very clean & comfortable and well stocked with everything we needed. The community area and pond were so beautiful - we loved walking there and letting our boys play. Thank you!
