Our stay at Skyland Retreat was fabulous.

The cabin is beautiful. Everything that you may need is there. The only problem we had was the lock. Apparently the wifi was down and we had to contact the help desk. We contacted the home owner and was able to get in. Would stay there again.

The view is absolutely breathtaking, both during the day and at night, and that alone would have made it worth the trip. The furnishings and decorations made it feel very much like home, and we had no trouble getting comfortable and relaxed as soon as we arrived. The kitchen has everything you need to cook meals with, which is really a spectacular touch. There are a couple of different grocery stores just a short drive away, so even though we accidentally left a few things at home, we were able to prepare all our meals and buy some extra snacks. We enjoyed our time there so much that we started planning our next stay before we even checked out! We would advise not to leave on a Sunday though, check-out time is 10am, and that's when the trash drop-off opens on Sundays.

A little piece of heaven in the clouds!

We wanted to find a cabin in the mountains, little did we know we would be at the top of the mountain!

Comfortable and cozy cabin within a half an hour from Blue Ridge, GA, TN and KY. Our 3 kids played soccer, billards and darts in the den whenever we were not out exploring, hiking or enjoying the wrap around porches.

The neighbors, both of them, we're very kind and shared their marshmallows at the fire pit one evening.

We will be making Skyland Trail part of our families traditions for sure!

Wonderful place to relax

The cabin is as wonderful as it looks on the site. We spent a short week there and wished we could have stayed longer. We were 4 adults and 2 boys (5 and 7) and everybody just wanted to stay at the cabin instead of discovering the surroundings. The cabin is very easy to access, with only the last 10 minutes of mountain roads and the last 5 minutes are unpaved. We fell in love with the Murphy Ingles grocery store: it has a good selection of products, cooked meals and a salad bar.

The house itself looks brand new, with very nice appliances. It is clearly somebody’s house, not a house designed just to be rented. It feels really homey as soon as you get in. All 3 levels have a balcony, so we spent time on different levels when we wanted some quiet/private time, or we all chatted together on the main floor or played in the game room. The game room is very spacious and has a pool table that was a nice size for the kids to enjoy, yet big enough that the adults could have fun too. The kitchen is designed so that 3 people can be in it without stepping on each other, and the kitchen island offers space to spread out. The kitchen has everything you need to cook and eat there. The dish washer is so quiet that we turned it on and forgot it was on. The lights on the main floor (where the kitchen, living room and kids room is) has dimmable lights, so we left them on as night lights so the kids could find their way around to go to the bathroom or if they wanted to get us in the upstairs master bedroom. I had brought nightlights and put them in the bathroom itself. The main balcony is big and gives plenty of space to run around or spread out on the many chairs available. The internet seemed faster than at home (where I have FIOS), that was a nice surprise.

The cabin is on top of a mountain, in a quiet area. There are other similar houses nearby, but the properties are large enough that you don’t hear anybody else. I woke up early one morning and there was a deer in the front yard.

I strongly recommend this cabin for anybody who wants to spend a quiet time away from home, yet close to civilization.
