Beautiful, Breath Taking Views, Relaxing, Comforts of Home, Didn’t want to leave

  • 5 of 5

I can’t put into words just how amazing our week at Skyland Retreat was! We drove over 14 Hours to get there and when we pulled in, it was well worth the drive! The view of the mountains was incredible! The cabin is absolutely beautiful! So beautifully decorated! It had everything that you could possibly need except your clothes, toiletries and food! We went to the local Ingles store and bought our food for the week.

One of my husband’s favorite part was waking up each morning and sitting on the deck with a cup of coffee! Watching the sunrise and sunsets were spectacular! The kids , 8 and 10, had fun playing pool, the board games that were there, enjoying the WiFi and Netflix. The cabin is in a great location to Tennessee and Georgia as well. We went to many different locations including Rock City, Ruby Falls and Blue Ridge, Georgia. All a decent drive from the cabin. We even stayed in the cabin for 2 of our days and just enjoyed being together. There were no neighbors on either side of the cabin, just across the street. It was very quiet and peaceful. Everyone waved to us and one even made suggestions of where to go.

We can’t wait to make a return trip! There are so many things to do in the area. People that rent hotels are losing out! This is the way to go on vacation!

This is the most beautiful home we have ever rented! We looked at other properties while we were there as we are looking to purchase a home in the area and Skyland Retreat far exceeds everything we saw.

Beautiful Cabin with great views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin and all the space. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. The location was nice and the view was amazing. We would definitely stay there again. Having to take the trash is an inconvenience, as I have never had to do that in a vacation rental. Every other one I would assume has the cleaning people take care of that. However, that would not deter me from renting again, as the place was nice and view was worth it. The pool table is half size, but still fun if you just enjoy playing around on it. However, it should be moved because you really cannot play a real game on it. The room it is in is huge, so hopefully the owners move it to make it more accessible. Overall, I would stay here any time as the place is really nice and everyone enjoyed their time there.

Stunning Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful remote cabin, the views were breathtaking. It was an absolute delight to have the stunning views from the morning sunrise, all through out the day until sunset. Very peaceful and refreshing. The owners were very prompt in responding to the inquires we made both before we arrived and even during our stay.

A couple minor concerns were that the pool table looked to be full size but was about half size so we didn't end up utilizing it as much as we thought we would. The WiFi is OK, but if you have several users it tends to drop somewhat frequently.

The only other oddity to point out was the trash. We checked out on a Sunday so that may have been more unique for us. Check out is at 10 but the trash receiving place (about 10 minutes away) opened at 10. We had pondered leaving stuff outside with my wife while I ran the trash down but ultimately decided to load all our stuff and then hold the trash on my wife's lap. Not her favorite, and sort of a stinky way to end such a beautiful weekend. Perhaps they can adjust checkout time on days trash drop off opens late?

That being said, It is still worthy of 5 stars and I would recommend the stay highly.
