About

Pursuit of Happiness is a peaceful 3 bedroom, 3 bath cabin on more than
2.5 acres. A private canopied road winds up to this secluded mountain
vacation home. The first thing you will notice as you step onto the wrap
around porch is the outdoor fireplace, a cozy spot to sit and enjoy the
serene mountain setting. The cabin’s inviting open floor plan has a living
room with a cathedral ceiling and a wood burning fireplace, a fully
equipped kitchen with granite countertops and comfortable dining area.
This provides a wonderful setting to gather and enjoy each other’s
company. The living room features a 55” QLED flat screen TV with a full
array of satellite channels including sports, movies and music, a DVR, blu
ray dvd player and a dedicated HDMI connection for your device. A large
screened porch with a  cozy swing and comfortable outdoor furnishings beckons you to
enjoy beautiful sunrises, sunsets and mountain views or take a refreshing nap in the clean mountain air.

The main level bedroom offers a queen bed, a TV with its own satellite
receiver and adjoining bathroom with a double sink vanity and granite top.
The upper level offers a king bedroom suite with a TV and satellite
receiver, large walk in shower, and another double sink vanity and granite
top. This bedroom also features a private balcony with an even better
view of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. There is also an adjoining
loft with two twin daybeds and an area for playing cards or one of the
many board games provided.. The third bedroom, located in the newly
finished basement features another king size bedroom suite, private full
bath with a tiled walk in shower, TV/satellite receiver and access to
another screened porch area where the hot tub is located.

Pursuit of Happiness’s piece de resistance, also located downstairs, is
the comfortably furnished theater room featuring a 75” 4K TV with its own
satellite receiver and premium surround sound system. A DVD library of
over 300 titles is available. An HDMI hookup is provided for your gaming
system. This room is equipped with a wet bar and mini fridge for your
convenience. The custom live edge countertops and entertainment center
provide an interesting balance of rustic and modern atmosphere. This
room also has access to the lower screened porch where you will find a
six-person deluxe hot tub to soak away your worries, relax and unwind.
Pursuit of Happiness offers DSL WIFI (please note: while this service is
high speed, it does not offer a high end bandwidth that allows numerous
guests to access at the same time), a full channel lineup and independent
DVR access from all TVs, a gas grill on the main level deck, lots of
outdoor lounging and an outdoor dining area overlooking the mountain
range. While Pursuit of Happiness is private and secluded, you are just
minutes from Blue Ridge, McCaysville and Murphy, NC which offer a wide
variety of local activities include shopping and dining, hiking, white water
rafting, excellent fishing and boating on the 3 area lakes, casinos,
wineries, horseback riding, the Scenic Blue Ridge Railway and more.

Whatever your Pursuit of Happiness, a relaxing getaway or access to the
many nearby attractions, you will want to return again and again. Pets are
welcome with additional fees.

Peace and Tranquility

July 2021

Overall
5

This cabin gives the vacation peace and tranquility for the time of stay. The rooms are equipped with a tv each and a bathroom inside the room or just a door away. The owners were very thoughtful with the kitchen necessities and fully stocked in coffee, cling film, foil and other basic seasonings.The balconies are on each floor and gave a nice view to the long range mountains. The setting of the home was based on a homely setting with casual furniture, wicker patio furniture, and a clean jacuzzi, which we didn't use. The basement was well stocked with at least 50 movies and an entertainment area with its own kitchen. There were board games and other peaceful area to read if necessary.A great time to unwind. Thanks!

Beautiful and comfortable cabin in the a great location. Loved all three levels and spent most of our time on the screened porch at the main level. Hot tub is fantastic! Very comfortable beds and spacious bathrooms. Holly is quick to communicate and very easy to work with throughout the whole process. Highly recommend!

Great Escape

The cabin itself was perfectly prepared for us. Everything was clearly written and labeled. We enjoyed the hot tub, the beautiful back porch view and the movie theater. It was a nice escape from the internet, but we still had enough wifi to be in contact with the outside world when necessary. The drive from the main road to the cabin wasn't easy but it wasn't terrible either. Kitchen is a small so don't plan on cooking any feasts. Overall it was a lovely experience and we would stay there again.

My husband and I spent a week at his this cabin and had a very relaxing time! This place is secluded for privacy but very easy to access all the necessities. The porch swing was our favorite spot to enjoy coffee in the morning. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The hot tub was a fantastic added bonus!

Beautiful cabin, clean with great amenities. It's secluded, which is nice. It's a lovely wooded area. Kitchen has everything we needed and the outdoor fireplace was a nice touch. Hot tub was huge and clean. The directions to the cabin must be followed exactly.

The cabin is in a beautiful location and we had no problems finding it. The entertainment room downstairs is such a nice touch, and the cabin was well-stocked with towels and other amenities such as K cups and bottled water. We had such an amazing and relaxing girl's weekend. Our one regret is that we didn't stay longer!

We had the best 3 days! The cabin was perfect and relaxing. Unfortunately the hot tub was broken but that did not ruin our time. The beds were cozy and the outdoor swing was so inviting. Thee owners thought of everything to make our stay perfect.

Manager's Response

Dear Christina:
The owners are so sorry that the hot tub was not available for your stay. It was damaged by a lightening strike and was on backorder since July 2020. A deluxe 8 person tub was installed in February 2021 and we hope you come back and enjoy it!

Much Needed Getaway

October 2020

Overall

It was picture perfect. The cabin was amazing and stocked like no other cabin I've been in. It had water, coffee, popcorn and wine. The only thing is the kitchen is really small and not a lot of room to put your own groceries as there isn't a pantry. We made it work and loved it there.

Manager's Response

Dear Pat:
The owners of Pursuit of Happiness appreciated your comment about needing more storage space for provisions. They have added a hutch to the kitchen entrance which will allow easy accessibility to any items you might require.

The property was amazing. The movie selection was amazing. The cleaning supplies provided were much appreciated. All of the extra special touches were so thoughtful. There was absolutely nothing that we needed that was not available for us to ensure that our three day getaway was most enjoyable. Thank you so much for all of the Extra Special Touches!! I had s great birthday!! We will definitely plan to return and bring our family along. Stay Safe Everyone!

We rented this cabin for a girls weekend and it was perfect!! There were 8 of us and everyone had plenty of space. The cabin was clean and very well stocked with everything you would need. We had a great time in the hot tub and they also have an amazing movie room with tons of movies to choose from. Another favorite was all of the porches. W?e loved sitting out on them in the mornings and looking out at the mountains. I will say it was a bit scary driving up and down the mountain in a 12 passenger van, but any other car should be fine! Also, if you plan on cooking beware that the kitchen is not very spacious, but it worked fine for the 8 of us.

Great Getaway!

Great place for some quiet time. Short ride into town but isolated enough to get some peace! We were there with 4 adults and 3 children and had plenty of room in the house. It was super convenient to horseback riding and white water rafting.

Perfection in the Mountains

June 2020

Overall

Pursuit of Happiness is a gem. The house us beautifully appointed down to the fixtures. It was spotless and cozy. There was more than enough room for our family of six. The bottom floor bedroom and media room was a perfect teen spot. The back porch was perfect for all of us. Our pup loved being able to roam on the gated wrap around porch. The only change I would recommend is adding some light in the main floor bedroom. A standing lmpo lighton the dresser would help tremendously. Other than that everything was just what we needed.

Manager's Response

Dear Karen:

The owner of POH appreciates the feed back from their guests recommendations of ways to make each guest's stay more enjoyable. They have added sconces that are operated by a wall switch to brighten the bedrooms as you suggested. They hope you return and enjoy another great stay at POH!

This is a lovely cabin with lots of room for 6-8 people. Views are awesome and the porches are super relaxing-we spent almost all our time there. At night we hung out in front of the outside fireplace making s'mores or up in the loft working a jigsaw puzzle. The sound of the wind in the trees and birdsong is so peaceful-big change from. the suburbs. High recommend this place!

We absolutely loved staying at Pursuit of Happiness! The location was perfect and so was the property. There were many options as to where to enjoy your stay. The outside areas to rest and relax were the highlight. Also, the best movie room I've seen out of any other property we have stayed. This place will be on our short list of places we'll want to come back to. Loved it!!

We had an amazing getaway at Pursuit of Happiness. The cabin is cozy and comfortable and well stocked. The 3 levels each have a bedroom, bathroom and living space which makes it more comfortable to travel with other couples or kids. We brought our dog and she loved the 1 mile loop walk each morning in the neighborhood. Only 20 minutes from downtown Blue Ridge but tucked away so you feel like you have escaped. We can't wait to go back!

We came from Kentucky and one daughter from PA to meet up with our daughter who lives in Gainesville. Pursuit of Happiness was everything we hoped it would be. We enjoyed our stay so much, spending evenings on the screened porch with plenty of seating for all, while we listened to our son-in-laws guitar playing and singing. The swinging bed was delightful to many. Our dog enjoyed walking the loop. Pursuit of Happiness fulfilled it's purpose., bringing us much joy and sweet memories of our time together. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home that was the perfect get together place for our family.

We have had the best time at your sweet cabin! It was just perfect! We love all the little perks that you have like the K-cups, water games, etc. I especially love how we can tell you have a love for dogs. Our Charlie and Gertie absolutely loved the back porch and the wind chimes that you put on their level so they could play music. We have fallen in love with Blue Ridge and can't wait to come back. Thank you so much for your generous hospitality and letting us stay at your gorgeous cabin that made us feel right at home.

What a relaxing weekend we had! Thank you for sharing such a beautiful home and location with us! Our daughter, Jodie, planned this weekend get away for us so that we could all be together before our oldest son, Emmett, has to report to West Point next weekend. We will miss him so much! We enjoyed hiking to the swinging bridge, strolling through downtown Blue Ridge, and having ice cream, getting delicious BBQ from Blue Smoke BBQ, and making s'mores by your fireplace. We enjoyed your porches and views of clouds and seeing stars - all the simple pleasures of life. Your beautiful home was a perfect place to enjoy our family time and try to hold onto precious memories together. Thank you all so much!

Thank you for a wonderful stay with friends @ the Pursuit of Happiness. We enjoyed our time on the back patio and around the outdoor fireplace roasting marshmellows and enjoying drinks. The weather was perfect along with the setting. We took a fun day trip into Blue Ridge, Rode the Scenic Train to TN/GA border. Lunch was so-so @ Habeneros (don't get the beef) But the rest of the trip was fun and memorable for our Family. Thanks So Much! The Florences, from Roswell, GA

Weekend Getaway

My girlfriend and I rented this cabin for the weekend to celebrate our birthdays. The cabin was beautiful and relaxing. Scenery and location was amazing. Have to admit we were a bit disappointed in the water tho. Water had a strong, foul odor due to no filtration of sulphur and lead from the well. Us being people that enjoy long baths and showers this was definitely a let down. Owner would surely benefit from investing in a water filtration system and would solve the foul water smell. Other than the water issue tho, this was a beautiful cabin and we had an amazing weekend away. So much to do in the surrounding areas. Would recommend this cabin to others for the views and the cabin itself but wold warn them about the water.

Manager's Response

Dear Richard:
The owner of POH is very attuned to the reviews and recommendations of each guest to ensure they have the best possible stay at the cabin. The sulphur smell of the water has been addressed and resolved by an aerator has being installed on the well head . We look forward to have you as a returning guest so you can have another wonderful stay at POH.
