This brand new, 'old' cabin will get your attention as soon as you open the door.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Not well maintained - Frustrating experience
On the positive side, the view was nice and the cabin itself was in good shape.
Still, it was the least favorite cabin we have ever stayed at. We stayed three nights at the end of april 2013. The worst thing was the constant cycling of the hot tub. It kicked on and off 20-30 times a minute, never staying off over a couple of seconds. This made it hard to sleep for the first two nights. Finally we moved to the other bedroom and it was quieter since we were farther away. My wife didn't want to sleep in that room at first because they had sheets on the bed that didn't fit it. But sleeping was more important than having sheets that pulled off the mattress.
We called Witt's End when we first got there because they had left trash sitting on the front porch in a bag. This was a big deal because we had to sign an agreement that we would take our trash to the dumpster or pay a $50 fine. I've never had to do that before, but they warned us, so I can't complain too much about that. When I called about the trash being left, I mentioned the hot tub cycling. The property manager made a comment about me not knowing how hot tubs sound in the spring in the mountains. I have rented cabins with hot tubs in Gatlinburg and in Tellico Plains in the spring and I am aware how they are supposed to work when they are not malfunctioning. When someone came on the next day to get the trash, I had her come listen to the tub and she said it didn't sound right, and said they'd have to get someone to look at it. A lot of good that did us. I also told her that two of the three dvd's were out. She told me the owner would not be back until a few weeks. Wow, that's service. We watched movies in a bedroom instead of the living room. There was no working remote in that room.
Other than it not being maintained, it was a decent cabin. My wife said it needed a woman's touch as it didn't have much decoration and was very plain. Ok for a rustic cabin, but much less decoration than we have seen in our other cabin rentals.
One other word of caution - To top off the irony of having the trash on the doorstep when we had to sign papers that we would remove our own trash, we had asked about where to put the trash when we signed this paperwork since we were travelling on a bike. Witt's End told me I would have to take it to the facility at the end of the road which is about a mile. Not great, but the knowing is the important part, right? Well what they didn't tell me was that the facility was closed on Wednesdays which is when we checked out. Fortunately we saw the sign that it was closed Wednesdays so we took all the trash Tuesday afternoon. We had a little trash left for Wednesday morning, but our option of driving 10 miles the wrong way back into Boone to take it to the rental office seemed like a bad idea. So my wife held the trash for 14 miles up the Blue Ridge Parkway until we got to an overlook with a receptacle.
Thanks, Witt's End. I think I reached mine.
Response from At Your Wits End Vacation Rentals - 05/07/2013
Guest did report trash being left on the front porch. Based on his report, we expected to find several 13 gallon bags of trash when we went to pick it up the next day. We found 1 gray Walmart/grocery bag of trash. Our sincere apologies for the oversight. We also offer trash pickup ( in our policies) for a very reasonable rate for guests on motorcycles or for those who prefer that service. This guest chose not to utilize that option.
To correct the 'sheet problem" would have only taken a phone call to our office and supplemental linens would have been delivered and put on the bed.
The hot tub did seem to be cycling a lot and getting a tech over to check it out on short notice can be difficult here. Lots of hot tubs up here, not enough service technicians.

Peaceful and relaxing.
The pictures and discription didn't do The adam's Wildcat Cabin justice. The stay, view and service from Mr and Mrs Graham was far more than we expected.
The cabin made you feel right at home with everything we needed for a relaxing get away. We will be going back as often as we can.
Thanks at Your Wits End Vacation Rentals for the great service.

Memories that last a lifetime.
I loved how the cabin had lots of room and amenities. I really liked the rustic look and the unforgettable view. My son enjoyed having a yard to play in and his own little room. Location to everything was within five miles and easily accessible. Will definately try to get this cabin again.
Excellent & well-run; clean and well-equipped. Recommend to anyo
This was our first time staying in Boone, and we were not disappointed. This was a beautiful cabin, very homey, clean and well-equipped. It has 2 jacuzzis in each bath, a well-stocked kitchen, a hot tub on the deck with breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mtns. The staff were friendly and excellent and very responsive; we were surprised to receive a complimentary bottle of wine! Couldn't have been better. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone, and plan to return next year. Great for families, too!
Wow! What a wonderful cabin and breathtaking views.
Just beautiful, only way to describe this cabin. Lots of room, all the amenties a cabin could have...from hot tub, to great views,to the most confortable beds I ever slept on. Great for all members of the family. Kids had a ball, great memories.
I recommend to all who want a great vacation to the North Carolina mountains.
