I went to WCU and was back for a football game. We thought about trying something different than staying in a typical hotel room. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with the stay at Sunset Farms. The location, cabin, facilities and check in/check out process was excellent. We absolutely enjoyed ourselves and will be back in the future.

I was pleasantly surprised by the size and cleanliness of the cabin for the price that I payed. However, the bathroom seemed to have flooded in the past and appeared to have water damage. After showering in the cabin the first night, a very strong odor lingered in the bathroom for the rest of our stay. As long as we kept the bathroom doors closed at all times, we managed to contain the smell. Other than the bathroom, our stay was extremely enjoyable and peaceful!

Renovation on the Opossum cabin bathroom started August 13th and was completed Saturday, August 16th, 2014, directly after your stay. The entire floor and vanity was ripped out and replaced - the toilet was completely removed during the process and received a new ring as the old one was failing. The entire bathroom received new drywall and 2 fresh coats of paint! We had to wait until we had enough time between guests to complete the project and were not able to until this time. Since 2012, the new owners of Sunset Farm Cabins have put most of our operating income back into updating our cabins ~ new roofs, new linens, King size beds, 3 renovated bathrooms, new lawn games, and repainting of all cabins, porches, tables, and chairs! Come see our constant commitment to improving our property!

We took our twin girls on a weekend trip before school starts. We found Sunset Farm Cabins on line last minute. I called and talked to Michelle and she was very helpful in letting me know about the cabin Raccoon. I went online and booked it that day. The area is very nice and quiet, other than the highway close by, but not very noticeable. Michelle was very helpful with area info on things to do. Plan on staying again.

Pros: Convenient location, two outdoor hot tubs for use. Cons: Near major road with considerable motorcycle traffic. Cabins are very basic and close together. Office not open on Saturday. Smoky Mountain National Park and Blue Ridge Parkway are very close by. Services are several miles away in Cherokee, Sylva or Bryson City. Probably OK for families, especially if multiple cabins are rented, but cannot recommend if you are looking for a secluded, quiet or romantic getaway.

Starting at $100 a night, I would like to say that I don't believe our cabins our "Basic". We have flat screen tvs with cable service, free wifi, a grill, and covered picnic table for every cabin. We have a laundry facility, fire pit, and lawn games on site - as well as our two hot tubs - that are maintained and working 24-7. Some of our cabin have king size beds and fire places! It really depends on the cabin you chose - as we keep some as economically reasonable as possible, each has it's own level of ammenties. Services, including gas, dollar general, gaming licenses, etc. are within 5 minutes of our location (less than 4 miles) and our closest grocery store is only 5 miles away.... still with all the tranquility of the mountainside. The office is open everyday, except for Saturday. However, your on-site hosts are available 24/7 by phone and live on location. We've had plenty of couples love their romantic get-a-way here and come back year after year. We're clean, affordable, friendly, helpful, and have great proximity to all your Smoky Mountain Adventures - Can't rate Dining a "3" when we have a Ruth Chris 6 miles from here!

We enjoyed our stay Sunset Farms Cabins! There was a cat on our bed when we arrived :-) Very friendly, but had used the couch for the litter box. All was good once we got that cleaned up. The office was closed on Saturday and was not open before we left on Sunday, so there was no one to share this information with. We did enjoy the firepit and making smores. Overall, we enjoyed it and would try it again. The cat was very sweet and hung out with us quite a bit!

I sincerely apologize that someone mistakenly locked Rusty, one of the cabins' rescued cats, in your cabin. I have spoken to staff regarding his sneaky behavior. I hold the cleanliness of our cabins as a very high priority and was truly disappointed an accident such as this occurred. For any of our future guests, I am the on-site host and live directly behind the office. I am available 9 to 5 every weekday and Sunday from 10 to 2 and my direct cell phone number is listed throughout the property and in-cabin guidebooks in case anything like this ever happens. Also, feel free to stop ANY member of our staff when you see them around the grounds - we will be happy to assist you and our photos are in the in-cabin guidebooks under "Meet your Sunset Farm Cabins Staff"

Can't say enough good things about this place.

These cabins were awesome. I stayed here with my friends and family we rented 5 of the cabins. The fire pit it awesome (firewood already chopped to use) all the cabins had a grill. There's a porch with rocking chairs to relax. Horse shoes, and other games there along with 2 hot tubs! This place was seriously amazing and I would defiantly stay here again. We all talked about coming back next year to do it all over again. The owners are FREAKING AWESOME and do not bug you or anything. They actually came out talked with us told us places to go eat hang out and which way te CASINO was! Overall this place was phenomenal! I would recommend this to my friends and family and everyone who asks where to stay and be near the casino!

We had all our kids together for the first time in a couple years and decided to go rafting on the Nantahala as we did several years ago. I was able to book a cabin here on fairly short notice. The setting is nice and peaceful. There were other people there our first night but the second evening and night, we were the only people at Sunset Farm. Nice both ways. The cabin and grounds were immaculate. I was very impressed by how clean and well kept the place was. They've got just about everything you'll need to enjoy a short or long stay. We enjoyed a campfire both nights but because it was such warm weather we decided to skip the hot tubs. I could see spending a week here easily and spending the days exploring the surrounding areas. Plenty to do around here if you're in to the outdoors as we are. We met Joel briefly and he was very friendly. Rusty the cat was a treat too! I'd definitely stay here again if we come out this way again anytime soon.

My boyfriend took me away for a birthday weekend getaway and we had the best time with such breathtaking views. The hot tub was exactly what we were looking after a a memorable hike of waterfalls, or a smoky mountain railroad excursion. We cooked in every evening and relaxed Sunset Farm Cabin style. Highly suggest checking this family owned cabins out!

Upon arrival I was told that I didn't need to do anything to check-in and that unless I wanted to change my credit card, I didn't need to do anything to check out either. The process is very minimal and allows you to focus on enjoying your vacation. I appreciate that. The whole facility is very clean and inviting. The hot tubs were all working and clean. My only complaint is that the bed was hard as a rock and squeaked anytime you moved, thus I really never had a good night sleep.

Our family stayed in 4 of the cabins. All are very nice,well kept, and clean. The owners are in the process of updating TV's and beds. Our cabin, the Raccoon had a nice new big TV in the livingroom. The grounds are awesome and there is plenty to do. Horseshoes, badminton, and baseball were our favorites. There is also an awesome fire pit they will get going for you if you ask, and if you are lucky, Joel will play his guitar around the fire...that was such a treat! There is a great deal to do in the area, and Sunset Farms was very convienently located and easy to get to. The brownies were yummy too!

We had a great time at Sunset Farm Cabins. The cabin was spacious, the bed comfortable and the kitchen facilities adequate. We were lucky to have a camp fire the first night, then "Sandy" arrived. We could not do the Parkway, but boy, the snow was a bonus. Our hosts were wonderful, great company, and great info on the area. Would recommend to anyone staying in the area.

We totally enjoyed our stay at the Opossum cabin at Sunset Farms Cabins. Joel and Michelle went out of their way to greet us (excellent brownies) and meet any needs we brought to their attention. If you're looking for a place to stay that's away from the bright lights and noise, yet close to the GSMNP and nearby towns, we highly recommend staying there. We look forward to going back there again!

Our stay at Sunset Farms Cabins was a wonderful experience. The view of the Smokey Mountains from our cabin was amazing. Michelle and Joel made us feel so welcome. When we arrived, our cabin was unlocked and the keys were on the table along with delicious warm homemade brownies. The nightly campfire was a very nice addition to our stay. We will definitely visit again and highly recommend it to others.

Sunset Farm Cabins is where we stayed while making day trips to Cherokee. Going to Cherokee was a trip that Dad planned for Mom before his passing. My Wife, Mom and I had such a great time. The new owners are super! We will be back. Lounging in the hot tub as the mist and fog rolled in over the mountains was a breathtaking experience. My Wife really beat me at Extreme Badminton though.

My family and my brother's family staid here for a week and thoroughly enjoyed it. The cabins were clean, affordable and we loved hanging out by the outdoor fire and roasting marshmallows and making smores. Great location to get to either Asheville or Gatlinburg both an hour away. It's minutes away from Bryson City, Cherokee and Smoky Mountain National Park.

My wife and I booked a cabin at Sunset Farm on a whim. We were pleasantly surprised with the cabin, grounds, and owners. This picturesque well manicured retreat has left us with a warm and cozy feeling inside. We really enjoyed watching the fog rolling over the mountain tops, every day. The owner was friendly and pleasant to chat with. We look forward to returning soon.

Sunset Farms Cabins was so tranquil and peaceful - I can't wait to stay here again, but for a longer period of time! The cabin was clean, spacious and had all of the comforts of home. We cooked out for dinner and dined at the covered picnic table just outside the cabin - so amazing having dinner with nature! The grounds were beautiful, well kept and quiet, except when my kids were running around! We were very close to all of the activities we planned in the area, and the drive with the beautiful views, to and from, was exceptional! I would definitely recommend Sunset Farms Cabins to anyone staying in this area.

We had our family reunion at sunset farm cabins. This was a wonderful time spent with family. We gathered around the fire pit and roasted marshmallows. We played horseshoes and just spent good quality time together. It was a great place for all of this, and felt like you were in the middle of nowhere but was close enough to the real world to go get food and do different activities together like white water rafting, and zip lining. The owner was very nice and offered many times to take care of anything that we needed. I would recommend this place to others. My personal tastes are for a more modern design to places I normally stay, so that is why the rooms did not get a higher rating.

SunSet Farms Cabins is like a tiny home away from home.We stayed in the Fox Cabin, for 5 days over a very busy holiday weekend. Everything was great. We were in a convenient central location for all of our planned activities. We were provided maps and directions to other local activities. Oh, and we were greeted with best brownies EVER!!!!! randy is awesome and we are already planning our next trip.

This was our second stay at Sunset Farm Cabins, and from now on, it will always be our base when exploring the Smokies. The place is charming, the cabins are very clean and very well-equipped, the grounds are inviting and well-kept and Randy and Michelle, the owners, are very nice and personable. This place is also a bargain. In fact, before we left, we booked the Opossum cabin again for our next trip in October...whether you are looking for a romantic weekend getaway or for a family vacation, we highly recommend Sunset Farm Cabins!

Stayed in Bear Cabin for 3 nights and loved it! The owners are extremely nice and helpful. The Cabin was better than I expected it to be. The decorations were wonderful and the cabin itself was very homey. It was very clean and the location is perfect for Cherokee (museums, trails, casino) and Bryson City (Shops and Smoky Mountain Railway). Also very close to Smoky Mountain National Park. The grounds are very well kept, and the cabin comes with everything you need away from home. Me and my mom are not your typical outdoor or roughing it types and found it to be far enough away from city/town life and close and convenient enough to feel comfortable! Thanks for the great experience and for sure hope to be back!!!!!

We stayed in the OPossum cabin. (1 br). The cabins were part of an established property (25 years old) but were well maintained and clean. We had our own charcoal grill and picnic table outside the unit (pictured). I really appreciated the ease and convenience of online reservations and the cabins are very reasonably priced with no hidden fees or extra charges that are tacked on afterwards. Randy and Michelle (the innkeepers) are very friendly and did their best to make our stay an enjoyable one. I had inquired about the hot-tub outside our unit and Randy made sure it was serviced and ready for use before we returned that afternoon. They even gave us printed directions to local waterfalls and a map! :-)

Very nice stay and good value. Cabin (Fox) was very clean and has recently been completely refurbished by Randy. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. Since there are only a few cabins the atmosphere is more cozy and quiet than the larger resorts. Almost all activities that you'd want to do is close by, although the location is luckily somewhat removed from the major "Tourist Trap" areas. Thanks Randy and Michelle for an enjoyable stay. Ben

Although a little confused by this review thanks for the feedback. We have 5.5 acres as stated on our website with open grounds to enjoy but without owning much more land it is difficult to have hiking trails onsite. In the years we have been here we have never heard of a problem with traffic noises but as mentioned we appreciate the honest feedback and hope you find what you are looking for next time. Great travels!

These cabins are really a great choice as they are located close to many of the popular towns. The owners are very nice and helpful that live onsite. When reading the last review on Bed and Breakfast it is hard to believe they stayed at the same place as Sunset Farm Cabins is a great find for a great price. I guess some folks that are used to staying at expensive 5 star resorts have unrealistic expectations for a small cabin rental facility. Our 2 bedroom cabin was priced at under $100 a night and included everything, which counts for a lot. The accommodations are rustic but kept very clean, cozy, and comfortable. The property is well kept up with landscaping and fun activities onsite. This was really a great choice for an excellent price and we will be returning next time.

Sunset Farm Cabins is located nicely between Sylva and Bryson City. The landscaping and grounds are kept very well. The hot tubs and horse shoe pits were a nice bonus. However, beds were VERY firm, furniture only adequately comfortable. Some of the pots, pans, dishes in the cabinet were dirty and "very well used." Other than that, it was a nice stay.

Thanks for your feedback even though we never like hearing dissatisfaction from guests for anything. Having heard our beds are a too firm for your liking we wish we could have every guest's preference but thankfully almost every guest mentions they are very comfortable. We do update kitchen wear every year (or as needed) but if we had to more often we would have to raise prices drastically. Thanks for your feedback and we hope you find what you are searching for in the future.

These are great cabins. We stayed in the Moose Cabin and from the moment we arrived we were greated with comfort. The owner had the paperwork ready, the key waiting and was very informative on what the area had to offer, which was alot! These cabins sit in Whittier, NC but this gives you easy and quick access to Bryson City, Cherokee, Dillsboro, Sylva and even Franklin and beyond. The Smoky Mountain Park is there as are two to three rivers for family friendly tubing days to whitewater rafting. Not far from Nanatahala either which we saw...we did it all and in 4 days time. Horseback riding in the mountains and across streams was amazing and inexpensive. The view from the cabins awesome. These are not huge cabins but we slept 4 adults and 2 kids very comfortably. If it hadn't been so hot, it would have been perfect but no one can be blamed for heat waves this summer...there was plenty to do that kept you cool though. At night, it was cooler. Our last night we even did a fire in the large group firepit they had...which was fun for marshmellow roasting...yes even in July! We met tons of nice people...like I said, we plan on returning to the Sunset Farm Cabins...worth the price which was very reasonable....

He also provided us with detailed maps for the places we wanted to visit and booked our whitewater rafting trip for us.
