“Relaxing Retreat”
Reviewed 27 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed here for a family vacation and it was lovely. Perfect blend of mountain cabin and modern amenities. The rooms were cozy and well furnished. We added the guest house and it made a perfect hang out for the kids while allowing the main cabin to stay a bit more relaxing for the adults. It was only about ten minutes from town (Bryson City) which is a picturesque little town with cute shops and a train depot. Overall we had a great vacation and the friendly staff at GSMCR made it that much better!! Highly recommend for a delightful mountain stay.

Really appreciated the courtesy calls everyday. We felt very welcomed. It was our first time ever at a cabin and we will definitely return. We went with my 2 yr old and 5 yr old. They truly enjoyed the entire trip and had a blast playing in the snow. The scenery was breathtaking! and the cabin was lovely.

Thank you for taking the time to review Morning Sun Retreat. It sounds like you really enjoyed the snow. We hope you will visit us again -- as a VIP repeat guest you will receive a 10% discount off any of our cabins.
When it's warmer, there are a lot of fun things to do with children outdoors like tubing at deep creek and rafting on the Tuckaseegee River.
Another great time to visit is around Christmas -- the train runs a Polar Express ride, and there are lights all lit up.
