Cancellation Policy
Our Cancellation Policy "In a nutshell": 
​Each cabin is individually Owned and typically is the only property the specific Owner has to offer for rent. When a Guest occupies time on this Owner's calendar, then has to cancel the reservation, the property may remain empty. Although we empathize with your emergency, it really is not fair to "transfer" your financial hardship to the property Owner.
* Travelers/Cancellation Insurance will be offered at the time you reserve the cabin. If cancelling or encountering an unfortunate emergency  is a concern for you, We highly recommend you purchase this Insurance. Travelers Insurance is a "per reservation" policy, not a "per person" policy, and covers much more than just cancellations. To learn more now, go to itravelinsured. The cost is approximately 6.95% of the total.

FULL REFUND - Cancellations that are made more than sixty (60) days prior to the arrival date. (Less the greater of 5% or $75.00 Cancellation/Modification Fee)
50% REFUND - Cancellations with over 30 days Notice (Less the greater of 5% or $75.00 Cancellation/Modification Fee)
Cancellations that are made within 30 days of the arrival date, or changes that result in a shortened stay, forfeit the full advance payment and reservation deposit. Cancellation or early departure does not warrant any refund of rent, however, Credit will be Offered to Guests in good standing, for cancelled dates that are re-rented. 

COVID-19 PROVISION: In the event Swain County would implement Travel Restrictions, or Closes Short Term Rentals, we will offer to reschedule reservations to within 1 year. Modification/Change Fee will be waived. Covid-19 Cleaning Policies and Procedures will be emailed to all Guests, prior to arrival. *Cleaning Products are EPA Regulated *Cleaning Procedures are per CDC Guidelines.

Everything was lovely! by Katie 08/01/2020
Everything was lovely! The home and the setting and the neighborhood. Just the getaway we needed, we will be back!
Great views and very clean! by Sarah 08/01/2020
Great views and very clean!
This house had everything we could have wanted. by Jessica 07/01/2020
This house had everything we could have wanted. It has amazing views and games to help keep the kids entertained. The house was also very clean and communication was easy and quick with the host. Thank you for a lovely stay.
This place is an incredible find up in the mountains of NC. by Josh 07/01/2020
This place is an incredible find up in the mountains of NC. The views were stunning, you have everything there for cooking if you don't want to go out, and you're nearby the Smokey National Park, hiking, fishing, also down the road is zip lining, white water rafting, a lake with boat, kayak, and paddle board rentals. Or you can sit in the comfort of the place, read, and take in the views.
TL;DR: This is one of the coolest Airbnb’s we’ve stayed at! by Nicholas 06/01/2020
TL;DR: This is one of the coolest Airbnb’s we’ve stayed at! I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a mountain getaway near a lake.

The location is tucked away in the woods on top of a mountain. The pictures on the listing really don’t do the view justice. The listing has a private dock for their community so we were able to rent a boat (20 min from rental place) and keep it at their dock. I highly recommend renting a boat because Lake Fontana is absolutely gorgeous. We rented from Almond Boat rental and they were great and dog friendly.

The house is perfect for just about anyone. WiFi is great (we had Zoom calls all week and it worked fine) but we also had perfect cell phone service. Important to know that the house is very soundproof. Meaning that people could work on the patio or be by the fire and you can’t hear it inside.

The amenities are really nice. They had bean bags (corn hole), jenga, hot tub, board games, and a fire pit. They have dry wood for guests at the fire pit.

It’s also super dog friendly.
Now quit reading my review and just book the place already! You won’t regret it!
This is the best blend of mountain escape and modern comforts. by Michael 05/01/2020
This is the best blend of mountain escape and modern comforts. You can't beat the views, the amenities and the relaxing space.
The Watia View was an amazing property. by Tonnie 12/01/2019
The Watia View was an amazing property. Just the place to relax and enjoy nature. Our host was wonderful; all instructions were provided and exact. WiFi was great! We would love to stay again.
Waita house by Jay L 11/01/2019
Great place to stay. Enjoy a view from everywhere in house and outside
You're missing out if you don't stay here! by Megan P 10/01/2019
I've never been so sad for a vacation to come to an end. The house was as pictured & described, but better. There are incredible views from all levels & rooms of the home. The hot tub is divine after a long hike. With the surroundings it's hard to want to stay inside so this house is perfect to enjoy the outdoors without going far for those who want less action & more relaxation. Lots of fantastic hiking around and it's a quick drive to NOC so plenty of things for families to do, places to eat etc. We cooked/grilled most meals & were very happy with how the kitchen was stocked to make that easy. It is so peaceful & beautiful up there, it really is a real treat. Book NOW-seriously you won't regret it!
mountaintop wonderland by Stella H. 07/01/2019
We stayed at Watia View end of July and had the best vacation yet. The bed were comfy, home spacious and views spectacular. We prepared every meal in the well-appointed kitchen and ate at the huge granite island. With one king bed, one queen and a pull-out queen, 6 is the perfect number. Access to NOC on the private road allowed us to reach rafting and zipline in under 8 minutes. Amazing! Corn hole, jacuzzi and fire pit were terrific and used daily. We will be back!!!!
Well designed cabin with a beautiful view by Natalie M. 05/01/2019
Its rare to find a rental where real life views live up to the pictures, Watia View however was that rare instance. The views were beautiful, and the cabin was designed with large windows on two floors. The covered lower porch has a hot tub, Jenga and cornhole to enjoy if it's a rainy day. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked. The roads are narrow but well maintained. Great experience!
Watia View by Alan J. 04/01/2019
This beautiful cabin will always be cherished and treasured! As we left April 6th and headed back home to Florida, I remember thinking, Kila has never been happier! A peaceful, beautiful cabin with incredible views. On April 7th my wife of 37 years, passed away suddenly of a blocked aorta while eating dinner in our Sarasota home. No symptoms, no pain. This cabin gave her such happiness and joy!! Someday, my son and our two dogs hope to return! Kila felt this was heaven on on Earth, never realizing the next day, heaven would be her home....❤️
Perfect by Cana H. 03/01/2019
Watia View is perfect. Beautiful views. Secluded. Well supplied (even dog bowls). Close to the NOC and Tsali.
The house is exactly as advertised.
Managed very well. Great communication.
We will be back!
We had a great time! by Tien 03/01/2019
We had a great time! Will be back!
We had a great time exploring the mountain and relaxing at the house on our last-minute weekend getaway. by Kaley 01/01/2019
We had a great time exploring the mountain and relaxing at the house on our last-minute weekend getaway. The house was absolutely perfect...perfect location, spotless, perfect set-up...the hot tub and the fire pit were also really nice! I don’t think I’ve ever seen that many stars in the night sky. Such a breath of fresh air from city life! We were the only people up on the mountain. Even the NOC was closed! It was really nice to unplug!

Absolutely Breathtaking! by Rhonda H. 05/27/2018
We absolutely loved Watia View! You will not be disappointed when you choose to stay in this cabin. Beautiful views, pristine and peaceful describe this cabin at the top of the mountain. While enjoying the fire pit, we felt as if we could touch the stars, the sky was so clear. You will get the best sleep ever on the comfortable beds, thank you for choosing such comfortable mattresses! We will definitely return to this slice of heaven in the sky!
