Meet The Host

We're a couple of Chicago natives that fell in love with the peace and serenity of the NC Smoky Mountains. We love all that mountain life has to offer, but especially hiking and chasing waterfalls. Thankfully, Western North Carolina has an abundance! The goal is for your stay to be one filled with rest, relaxation, and to truly provide a "home away from home" experience in our cozy cabin.
