How on earth do you choose a Cabin

Can anyone offer any advice on choosing a cabin? We are considering a vacation with another family, 4 adults, 2 - 6 year old boys, and 3 dogs. But how on earth do we decide between rock creek cabins, bryson city cabins, Lands Creek etc. Every cabin looks basically the same, i guess the one preference the other family had so far is a little further (Bryson City Cabins), but there all within about 20 minutes of Bryson City. All seem to be pet friendly, and they all really look similar in the pictures....a bunch of wood. They all even offer the same amenities, no idea where to begin....We would be going in early August.

Try clicking on "Vacation Rentals" on the upper left side of the screen. Some of the area cabins are listed and reviewed by previous renters. Hope it helps!

Try to decide what is important to you. My prime consideration is a good view with a nice deck to enjoy it. Others may want creek-side, a grassy yard, or hot tub. Do you require paved road access? Many are on gravel roads that are steep and windy, which doesn't bother me, but it may concern you. To me, the location usually trumps the house itself. If you have an address, or a general idea of the location, look at satellite images on google or bing to get an idea of the proximity of neighbors.

Lots of good advice so far. Also look at Flipkey, which is TripAdvisor's version of vacation rental cabins. Most of the cabins listed there have reviews too so you get an unbiased opinion. And they show deals too. flipkey.com/bryson-city-cabin-rentals/g48984/
