Absolutely awesome location and a fantastic house! We saw 9 elk during our visit, 5 of them within a quarter mile of Balsam Retreat. It’s proximity to the Motorcycle museum was an added bonus! We will definitely return someday.
We absolutely loved our stay at this getaway! It was perfect for our 3 adult-size children and the wife and me. We slept downstairs, 1 kids took the big bed upstairs and the 2 girls slept in the pair of twin beds in the other room upstairs. Everything was a described and clean. Communication and directions were crystal clear. It was perfect for visiting Cherokee and a drive on part of the Blue Ridge Parkway. We used the grill one day and ate at a recommended place called Brick House Burgers and Pizza, which was excellent and did a great job catering to a gluten allergy. We definitely would come back!
