"What a pleasure to finally have a vacation rental that far exceeded our expectations. I have a family of five plus my parents joined us to vacation in the smokey mountains. The accommodations were excellent. The apartment was clean, private and had all the experience of a eco resort. Linda was amazing and made us feel very welcomed. It was like staying in our own home. We stayed during 4th of July weekend and the rates were very fair. I would have expected to pay much more for what we experienced. We will be back and if your smart and want to get away for a relaxing vacation you would take your family."
******"Ideal for couples or groups":
This is a beautiful place to come and relax with nature all around. It is conveniently located on paved roads, but with hiking right from the property. The large rooms were very clean and well-maintained. The kitchens were fully stocked just like at home. We came to relax and didn't try out all the many area attractions, but we hear they are plentiful and easy to get to. The owner will meet you and is very accommodating. This is a great spot to bring a group with several different sleeping areas and kitchens available. There are also outdoor seating areas."
Recommended for:Age 55+, pet owners, adventure seekers, girls getaway, sightseeing, families with teenagers, families with young children, people with disabilities, romantic getaways
******"Renewing Body and Soul in the Woods":
"As you travel a lovely winding paved road along side a running creek, via auto or motorcycle, you will be inspired by the views and the tranquility of the area. You will pass farm animals along the way and as you near the property and glance to the right you may be greeted by handsome horses and if you are lucky may catch deer grazing in the meadow. Pulling into Rose Manor I was warmly greeted by Owner, Linda and immediately felt my body relax and unwind as I took in the essence of Rose Manor. Every window displayed colorful views of the surrounding woods.
Carefully cleaned rooms,sweet smelling sheets, warm blankets and all the little amenities and attention to details, would make any guest feel contented and cared for. The area provides so many things to do and also the peaceful space to do nothing. I have returned here several times and will always make it one of my favorite destinations. Don't miss this memorable stay."
********"I Don't Think We're in Kansas Any More Toto!"
"My good friend and I take a long motorcyle ride each year from Kansas and this year we brought his younger son with us to North Carolina. We stayed three nights in the cabin at Rose Manor and it is a spectacular property and location.
The photos on this site give one a good feel for the place, but in person, it is so much more impressive. The lower level creek, garden, and fire pit sitting area are great for quiet get-aways or group conversation alike. Likewise, the upper level decks and sitting areas are an open invitation to admire the surrounding beauty and enjoy good company.
Being motorcyclists, location was very important and Rose Manor places the rider amidst one of the richest treasure troves of riding opportunities available anywhere in the US. Within a fifty mile radius of Rose Manor, we found some of the most challenging and/or scenic rides we have ever ridden. The best-known rides include Dragon's Tail, Cherhola Skyway, and Blue Ridge Parkway...but there are countless lesser known, even unnamed rides, that are more than memorable. Our favorite one was a shorter run on Hwy 28 from Franklin south to Highlands...great curves, pavement surface and pitching, plus a beautiful photo-op at Bridal Veil Falls.
Just prior to our trip, my friend, our wives and I saw James Taylor in concert (Wichita) and "Carolina on My Mind" rings especially true now that we've sampled The Great Smoky Mountains and surrounding areas of southeastern NC. Our stay at Rose Manor couldn't have been better and we'll be looking for the opportunity to return again to enjoy more of the Carolinas and the special nuances of Linda's place and southern hospitality" June 2014
*********"HD Bikers Getaway":
Eight men (7 bikes & 1 truck) headed to the NC/TN mountains for a 4-day getaway in search of great riding. We needed lodging for up to 10 and was lucky to find Linda's rentals. Linda was great in providing insight to the Rose Manor and Eco Cabin accommodations during our phone conversations. Linda made the scheduling really easy and was there to welcome us when we arrived. Linda provided enough bedding options that every guy had their own bed with a couple to spare. There are 3-4 King/Full/Double beds and a few twins spread around in different places if you need more. The highlight of the location is the fire pit and grill setup down the stone stairs from the lodging. We cooked out there 2 of 3 nights and talked, joked, laughed, and lied to each other until after midnight each evening. Although the driveway is grass/gravel it was very solid and we all drove up and parked next to the house. Another highlight for bikers is Linda's place is just off Hwy 28 so you get at least 5 miles of twisty road riding every time you leave from and come to the lodging. We were able to ride through the Great Smokey Mountain National Park, ride the Tail of the Dragon (US 129), and visit the Wheels Through Time motorcycle museum in Maggy Valley, this is a must for any motorcycle enthusiast. Everywhere you go provided a wonderful view, great roads, and friendly people.

*******"In the Trees by the Creek":
"I arrived to the Smoky Mountains from San Francisco with the desire to get out of the 'big city' and into a more peaceful, natural environment. I immediately felt welcome at the Rose Manor and settled in to my own, private room, complete with a fireplace, bathroom, and kitchen. Everything was cleaner and nicer than I anticipated. From my bedroom window, I can look out toward the beautiful trees surrounding the property. With the windows open, I can hear the lovely birds singing and the relaxing sound of the creek down below. There is also a beautiful eco-friendly cabin where larger groups of travelers can stay. Hiking trails begin from the driveway and the Smoky Mountain National Park and Nantahala are a short drive away. There is an organic garden which generously provides me with delicious vegetables to cook with. I can highly recommend this property for anyone looking to get back to nature and enjoy the peace and beauty of the Smoky Mountains."TripAdvisor property ID 3743331...Read more

What a Gem of a place! Mrs. Linda was as hospitable and welcoming as any property owner could ever be! Myself and two children (Ages 7 & 5) couldn't bring ourselves to leave the Eco Cabin as it was full of surprises to explore.. We just enjoyed the simplicity and stillness that the mountains have to offer and had a great mountain bike day at Tsali State Park which is just right around the corner.. Thank You Linda for a wonderful stay and we will be back soon!
“Quiet, comfortable, delicious, interesting and easy!”

Quiet, tho we watched a movie and enjoyed the creek flow sounds; comfortable and pretty indoors and out; delicious organic goodies from the garden with tour; interesting to see and learn about the eco architecture; and super easy staying in or going to Bryson City or asheville.

The cabin is truly beautiful. It's amazing that Linda, the owner, actually built the eco-cabin herself! She is a fascinating and welcoming host. The organic garden is wonderful and Linda sent us home with argula, tomatoes, and carrots for a tasty salad when we arrived back home! We roasted marshmellows on the fire pit under the star-filled sky and enjoyed the sound of the babbling creek. It was an fantastic stay.

I had an incredible stay at Rose Manor in the beautiful Smoky Mountains of NC. Each morning was more gorgeous than the last and the eco-cabin afforded me an incredible view. Linda made me feel like family and made sure I had every last thing I could need to insure a comfortable and relaxing stay. The cabin itself was so neat- it was like a giant tree house that rose up out of the side of a mountain. It was both spacious and yet extremely practical with its use of space. It was filled with interesting books and puzzle games hand picked by Linda who is quite the reader & very fun to talk to. She knows something about everything & a lot about eco-friendly living! I enjoyed exploring the rose gardens & the beginnings of an incredible organic fruit and veggie garden. There is also a rushing stream on the property that you can hear from your bedroom! I also recommend taking walks at sunset down the scenic country roads & be sure to stop and watch the cute chickens and goats. I recommend Rose Manor to anyone looking to get away to the mountains and back to the earth!

Thank you Linda for the great hospitality! Our cabin was made and desgined by Linda top to bottom! It was extremley unique, and could easily sleep 6 people or more. Everything was new, clean, and comfortable. The ride to get to the cabin was also beautiful, in the valley, with long twisting roads.
