We had a wonderful time at Lorin's house on the mountain! It was very clean, well stocked and quiet! The first floor living areas and bed/bathroom were easily navigable in a wheelchair. The loft and lower floor bedrooms were very comfortable and cozy as well! Whether it's the mountains on the horizon or the starry night sky, the view from the deck cannot be beat! We'll definitely be back!

We enjoyed our stay in Lorin's home. It has fantastic views and is in a good location for excursions to the Appalachian Trail (we really enjoyed the hike to the Wesser Bald Fire Tower), Bryson City, and about a 1-1.5 hour drive from Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We had a bit of a miscommunication regarding the number of beds included in the listing - ended up having to pay an additional $65/day to get all four beds included in the "Sleeping Arrangements" section of the listing - but other than that we had a great stay.

Beautiful home with amazing views. We felt right at home! Very convenient to numerous hiking trails, whitewater rafting, mountain biking and Fontana Lake. Lorin was very helpful and accommodating. We hope to return for future trips to the area.

We stayed in this place for 4 days with few friend. The house is amazing clean and fit with the description. Close to the river and very quite place. Unfortunately we had an energy shutdown for 24h- think about taking candles if the weather forecast are not good :) Otherwise everything was perfect and the region is amazing for outdoor activities. Thanks lorin !
