A great place to stay, a little remote, but not too far from town. Thoughtful hosts, private entrance, relax on the deck. Fire pit a great idea.

What an incredible place, quiet, immaculate, private entrance and tasteful details included: coffee bar, stocked fridge and snack bar.All for a reasonable price. Hosts are thoughtful, friendly but respect your privacy.

Beautiful, quiet location very convenient to town. The room was a nice size and very clean. Raquel and Jack provided a nice selection of breakfast foods. It was so nice to have breakfast in the room before heading out for our days adventure. We also loved our own front porch and fire pit. Raquel and Jack were very helpful by giving us recommendations for restaurants and activities to do around town. Make no mistake Raquel and Jack's place is a great value and they go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable.

Raquel & Jack's place could not have been any better than it was. It was very clean, had everything you could possibly need plus extras you didn't think you needed. They clearly take the time to think about their guests experience and go out of their way to make things pleasant. It was a private space, but we did get to meet and chat with Raquel and Jack for a bit and they are lovely. Their place is so well equipped it made us as hosts, think about upping our game. :) It's a great spot, I'd recommend it to anyone wanting to check out the Bryson City area, I think you'd have a hard time finding better accommodations for the price.

The room is large with a great sleeping bed! It was very clean with fresh bedding. Raquel and Jack provided great treats and were wonderful hosts. There is an outside sitting area which is peaceful and relaxing. The rental is close to Bryson City and Cherokee. We enjoyed our stay and will be back! Thanks Raquel and Jack!

We are open-minded, non-judgmental hosts who enjoy hanging out with folks from all walks of life. When not at work (Jack works in mental health, Raquel works in social services), we enjoy bicycling, hiking, gardening and quiet time spent at home. We follow a plant based diet and are always looking for interesting ways to cook tofu!
