About The Owner

Our cabin was built in 2000 - from clearing the land, to watching our 765 foot deep fresh spring water well be drilled - it was a huge project. It took over two years to build!

Why The Owner chose Cashiers

Living in Florida - lakes were not appealing to us - a rapid creek is exactly what we wanted - and got with this propety!

You can hear the stream/waterfall from the porch!

  • 5 of 5
This property has it all. My wife, two children and I were very comfortable. It is located very conveniently to Cashiers and surrounding areas. We sat on the porch with a cup of coffee and listened to the water! We went hiking one day and kayaking another without having to travel very far. Once we got back from our activities we could unwind in the game room. Entertainment options were limitless. Pool, ping pong, air hockey, foosball to mention a few. The kitchen was well equipped. The bedrooms were very comfortable. The owner was very easy to work with. They even had firewood delivered for us. The pictures do not do it justice! You can't go wrong staying here.

Large and well supplied but needs TLC

  • 2 of 5
We stayed in this cabin for a week with another family. The kitchen was great for cooking - large, with an incredible amount of dishes, cutlery, cups, pots, pans, bowls, small appliances, etc. The house was large so there were plenty of spaces for everyone to spread out and enjoy themselves, however, the house and especially the grounds seemed run down. The mattresses on every bed were HORRIBLE and the sheets were in need of replacement. TOWELS are NOT supplied. Lighting was poor throughout the house, so much so that we could not find a suitable place to do a 500-piece puzzle.
The vegetation & trees were so overgrown that you could not see the stream on the property or really any of the back yard and there were weeds and tall grass in front of the house. The multiple porches and decks did not look like they had been swept for months. The interior of the house was surface clean but dust was lurking on the bric-a-brac which was EVERWHERE. The ping pong table was broken but usable. There are only two TVs, one in the Master bedroom and one in the bottom floor rec room. It took about hour to get the TV downstairs to work so we ended up leaving it on the entire week so we wouldn't have to fight with it every day. The headboard of the bed in the master bedroom was fashioned from two large loops of dried kudzu which is impossible to dust, and which left a big gap between the mattress and the wall so your pillows would fall through. We ended up draping a sheet over it. One of the French doors to the deck off the master bedroom was missing a blind so every night we covered it with a blanket. Speaking of blankets, there were a fair amount in the house but we had to launder them as they smelled like they hadn't been washed in a really long time.
We built a fire in the great room and smoke was leaking through the chimney into the house. The wood floors were really worn and had not been refinished anytime in recent memory. The house is on a narrow twisty-turny one-lane gravel road, so you have to back up if a car comes from the other direction.
In closing, if the owner invests some time and money into maintenance, I would recommend the property.

Owner's Response: In response to this one and only negative review, I must first say that we immediately addressed all the issues with our weekly caretaker. Our cabin has been occupied for most of the summer and so we have been unable to personally visit the residence.
However, last I was there, the sheets were all in good form; as well as the mattresses, which were all clean and in good repair. The caretaker assured me that the status of such remains the same. While the mattresses are not "tempurpedics", mind you, we have not had a single complaint in the past. The bed in the Master Bedroom was hand-made by local artists, the same artists who crafted the beautiful dining room table. Again, we have never had any complaints in the past. Quite the contrary, we have received nothing but complements. We "intentionally" allow the natural vegetation to grow around the cabin - we are "in the mountains" and so try to keep it as rustic as possible. However, our caretaker cuts a deep trim a path to the creek, which he did again at the end of August. At the same time, he pressured cleaned the porches. We do provide for some limited modern conveniences including WiFi, satellite TV and two functioning televisions (with the game room TV being a flat screen, only one year old). As for lighting, this cabin is advertised and presented as a rustic cabin - which includes antique lighting that is subtle. This lighting; however, is complemented during the day with the natural sunlight brought in through the large and varied windows throughout the cabin. There is also high hat lighting throughout the game room. The ping pong table is not in perfect condition, but it works. I do NOT understand why the fireplace was lit in the middle of the summer. It smoked because the flue was shut. It may explain the huge electric bill for the month of August! It is not a very environmentally-friendly practice to waste air conditioning by lighting a fireplace in the summer. There is an outdoor fire pit for roasting marshmallows in the summer. In closing, this is a log cabin in the "mountains" - being on a "twisty-turning one lane gravel road" is all part of its rustic allure and what many renters enjoy it! I thank the reviewer for complimenting our well-supplied kitchen and spacious cabin and for the implication that she would recommend the property after the areas of concern were addressed.

I am sorry the renter was unable to enjoy the charm that comes with being one with nature.

Fabulous Home

  • 5 of 5
What an absolute delight to stay in this home for 4 nights. There was plenty of elbow room for all of us.
The house is lovely and the setting is lovely. I would most definitely recommend this house for a vacation. The owner was so easy to work with!!!! We cooked in the kitchen and cooked on the grill. Meals were easy to prepare in this well equipped kitchen.

Cashiers Log Cabin Beauty!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
What a beauty!!!! This cabin was like nothing I have ever seen. The many amenities available were so convenient for our family of four. This place is bigger than you expect. There is so much privacy on each of the 3 floors of this cabin that you can seperate yourself at any time in any room of the house. The Game room, Gourmet kitchen, massive fireplaces too many options to name!!! The rustic furniture sets the theme in this cabin and brings nature into your front door. The back decks were perfect for our morning coffees in the coolness of the spring air in North Carolina. It is so calming to hear the sound of the stream....its perfect to relax to. Relaxing is what you're going to be doing by staying here.

Prime Location!!!! The cabin is nestled in the majestic woods of Cashiers and the vacation that we had made it perfect for our week getaway. This is the second time that I have been here and definitely won't be my last. The location of the cabin was the perfect distance from the main city to be able to get what you need.

All in all, my family had the best time of their lives. Both kids and adults alike were in a mountain paradise! Can't wait to make our third trip to Cashiers and stay at this beautiful home.

Better than we expected!

  • 5 of 5
The owner needs to update the online picture! The cabin is way more gorgeous than it looks on this website.
Two days before the 4th of July holiday, my friends and I decided to find a vacation cabin in the greater Smoky Mountains area for a 4-day getaway. I contacted the owner one day before our check-in date, I had no problem booking the cabin with such a short time window.
When we arrived at night, we were surprised by so many things. The cabin is deep in the mountain surrounded by beautiful trees. You can hear the creek running and see the whitewater through leaves. Each room has its own character while the whole cabin preserves the spirit of southern wild nature. Detailed room décor is another highlight of the cabin, as I walked through each room, I was able to tell that this house is well taken care of by hearts.
This is THE ideal mountain vacation cabin as it has very component you need, the view, the location, the fully equipped kitchen, the giant playroom etc, you name it.
There was a little adventure during our stay. We lost power due to the heavy storm. Candle and fireplace grill displaced electricity and internet, this is a new experience for city boys like us.
Coming to the end of our short stay, we really didn't want to leave. I think the owner is too humble about her beautiful cabin. We definitely want to go back in the future.
