We enjoyed our long weekend stay at the Sky Cove Retreat. The mornings were breathtaking as we sat on the deck and enjoyed coffee. The cabin was very clean and we had fun listening to music in the evenings,cooking and looking at the mountains. The hot tub was so relaxing. Trip into Bryson City was a nice visit.
We really just wanted to spend all of our time at the lovely home enjoying the views!! Read more

Outstanding view and peaceful

cabin was clean and neat; kitchen pots and pans had teflon scratched off and frying pans were difficult to cook with; thermostat did not work and heat never came on. I called management and there was no repair made during our stay. Temperature was pleasant was a little cold at night, but no big problem. **We ended up with a bed bug infestation in our bedroom at home 3 weeks later, and may have picked them up in the upstairs bedroom - so please check that mattress for future guests!!

Thank you, Mike, for reviewing Sky Cove Retreat. We appreciate your time and feedback.
We’ve scheduled our exterminator to check this cabin, but on a preliminary inspection we have found no evidence of bed bugs. This is the first anyone has reported of this and our cleaning personnel check for this for each reservation.
As far as the heating goes, sometimes repairs can be delayed when we’re getting approval from homeowners. The HVAC has been repaired. We apologize you were not informed. We hope you utilized the gas fireplace to take the chill out of the air.
Unfortunately improper tools are sometimes used on non-stick pans. The pans have already been replaced this year, but we have made the Quality Control Manager aware of this so it can be added to the shopping list.
Again, we appreciate you taking the time to give us feedback. We hope you will stay with us again when you next visit the Smokys; as a repeat guest you will receive a 10% discount when you call to book.
07/10/2013 - The exterminator was out there and found zero signs of bed bugs, so you must have picked them up somewhere else in your travels. Thank you again for reporting this so we could check for our guests. Have a great day!

We were overwhelmed by the expansive view from multiple decks and nearly every room. The furnishings are very cozy and comfortable with mountain lodge theme. Meticulously clean and roomy. We hated to leave! Read more

I think we were nervous about staying here because the pictures looked so good and we were sure to be disappointed. How could a place be so nicely maintained and kept up. But much to our surprise it was awesome. just like the pictures. Great times were had and the riding for bikers is awesome in this area. I will be back for sure. the condition and view were amazing!!

Our family was blown away by the gorgeous cabin and beautiful views of the mountains. The rooms were clean/well maintained and the jacuzzi was perfect for the cool nights in april. We explored Cherokee and took the Great Smoky Mountain Train ride. A tip would be to buy your groceries before you go to the cabin :) You may not want to come down.

Fantastic views & nice cabin to spend a weekend with family
Left on 04/12/2012 for a stay in October 2011 | SkyberDean
Nice cabin with truly a great view. Enjoyed the beautiful surroundings & had a good time while staying at this location. The driveway is very steep but worth the drive up to sit on top of the mountain & experience panoramic views. The deck area & hot tub were very nice after a long day in the park. Furnishings were nice but could use some updating & the cabin was pretty clean itself. Read more

The house is roomy and comfortable with wonderful views and great convenience to the grocery store. We are minutes from the Smokey Mountain Rail Way, tubing, hiking, horse back riding and many good restaurants. What I liked best about our stay and this will be our fourth years is how relaxing, comfortable and soul recharging our time there is. Read more
