SECLUDED A-FRAME LOG CABIN IN THE WOODS! -WIFI, HOT TUB, CREEK, VIEWS, FIRE PIT!

Sylva Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 4-6

Are you looking for a mountain getaway that offers privacy and tranquility, but is still close to all the action in the Smokies? Come stay a while at the Little Cove Cabin and find what you've been looking for!

Tucked away in a little cove in the woods, you can relax on the large front porch and watch the abundant wildlife around you or swing in the hammock in the front yard while listening to the babbling brook near by. Wild turkeys, raccoons, rabbits, foxes, coyotes, and even an occasional catamount and black bear have all been seen here!

Hike through the acres of woods that surround the cabin, or fish for rainbow and speckled trout in the bold creek just down the road. In the evenings, you can roast marshmallows at the fire pit where you can sometimes hear an old Barred Owl hooting in the trees nearby. Take a long stroll up the East Fork creek where 100+ year old farm houses, grazing horses and cattle, and rustic old barns and silos whisper the stories from a bye gone era.

Newly renovated, this romantic little A-Frame log cabin has all the modern comforts of home while maintaining the rustic nostalgia of a cozy little cabin in the woods! The cabin has a queen-sized bed in the downstairs bedroom and a second queen-sized bed in the loft bedroom. There is also a sleeper sofa in the living area that helps to accommodate up to 6 people. A fully equipped kitchen and separate laundry room have everything you will need for your stay. The cabin also has wireless internet access throughout and a flat screen HDTV with Directv programming. Outside, there is a Weber gas grill, dining and picnic tables and plenty of seating for enjoying meals outside. Also, our newly installed 6 person hot tub is perfect for a relaxing soak after a long day of fun in the mountains.

Conveniently located only 10 minutes from the charming town of historic Dillsboro and 15 minutes from Sylva, Franklin, and Western Carolina University. The towns of Cherokee and Waynesville are just a 30 minute or less drive away.

If your looking for a cozy place to relax, decompress, and get back to nature, you will find everything you're looking for in the Little Cove!

About Kimberly Gray

My husband and I live and work in Sylva and are busy parents to our 4 small children. My husband works for the phone company and I am a potter that enjoys playing in the mud all day. We feel very blessed to be able to live and raise our children in these beautiful mountains.

Kimberly Gray purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Kimberly Gray chose Sylva

This property has been in my family for over 200 years. Growing up in Maryland, I have many fond childhood memories of my family's regular visits to the mountains and staying in the Little Cove. Playing in the woods and catching crawdads in the creek with my brother were some of my favorite things to do.

Originally built in the 1970's, the aging Little Cove cabin was in need of some TLC. As a result, a few years ago, my husband and I began a 2 year 'rebuild'. The result was a brand new home with the nostalgic charm of an old mountain A-Frame cabin. We are proud of the hard-work and love we've poured into this cabin and hope that many families will now make special memories of their own in the Little Cove.

Absolutely Wonderful

This cabin was everything our family hoped for. It was so nice and cozy. Our dog really enjoyed being outdoors with us. The location was perfect to WCU. Kimberly was so nice and answered all of my questions before arriving as well as while I was there. Will definitely be back to stay.

SOOOOOO peaceful.

  • 5 of 5
As a pastor who just started at a busy church 7 weeks before, I NEEDED some R&R. 3 days at this little A-Frame was the perfect spot!
The house was extremely well cleaned (from a picky reviewer!) and well laid out. Space is at a premium in this little A-frame and the owners have done a great job making it feel cozy but not cramped! It took me no time at all to feel perfectly at home for my short stay (wish it could have been longer).
I wish I could give you some ratings on local sights or adventures, but other than going to Castle Ladyhawke to perform a wedding on Saturday, I stayed in. I worked a puzzle, watched old movies, and soaked in the hot tub and slept in the loft bed at night. I don't get many opportunities for such getaways by myself, but would love to come stay here again.
Thanks for sharing your home!

As others have stated, this cabin is just as pictured. It is cozy and quaint on a beautiful secluded mountainside. I loved the drive up from the main highway as well...great mix of country, forest and mountain...small creek running along side the road all the way up. The actual gravel road the cabin is on is very steep, but our Toyota Corolla made it with a "running start" from the bottom. ;)

We used the cabin as home base for day trips to Bryson City, Smoky Mountain National Park, Pigeon Forge and all in between. Our family of four (age 14 and 12) really enjoyed the hot tub in evenings as the fireflies twinkled and the stream bubbled below. We also used the fire pit nearly every night as well.

The cabin was perfectly clean and obviously very well maintained. Everything worked as it should. Just book it already! :)

Better than described!

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic cabin and property! The listing description and pictures do not paint the whole picture. The cabin is much bigger than you think when you look at the pictures. The loft is HUGE with tall ceilings and a great bed. The bedroom downstairs has an incredibly comfortable tempurpedic bed. Pull out sofa was comfortable too! Full kitchen was fantastic. Property was extremely clean and well maintained. Located in secluded spot with the creek running alongside the property made for awesome campfires and lounging in the hammock. Very quiet surroundings. Owner did not bother us once, but was there for any questions or help if we needed it. Very easy check-in/check-out. Dining and shopping nearby was better than expected; lots of choices. Hot tub under the mountain stars was so cool. Can not say enough good things about the property, area, and owners. We WILL be regulars here.

A Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5
We spent Thanksgiving holiday at Little Cove Cabin and cooked our Thanksgiving dinner there. The cabin is so cute, cozy and had absolutely everything we needed. We even had a little snow! It was the perfect place to spend our holiday and get away from the hustle and bustle. Oh, I did make one online purchase on Black Friday using the cabin's WiFi. LOL Thanks to Kimberly (owner) for a wonderful stay.
