Overview

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.

beautiful, wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place. We have rented a lot of different place in the mts., but this is our all time favorite place. It has peace and quiet with the soothing creek, but the convenience of the outside world with wifi and direct TV. The hot tub was a wonderful way to end the day. Cookouts, picnics, and evenings around the fire pit to have s'mores were just an added pleasure. Great location, near towns and places to visit and hike. Kim, thanks for sharing this special place to make memories.

Lovely cabin in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 nights at this great little cabin at the end of May. Everything was nice and clean on arrival; the cozy downstairs bedroom has a Tempurpedic mattress and the living area has great gas fireplace. The hot tub in the back yard is very private and a wonderful spot to relax. We enjoyed staying at this cabin so much! The owners live very nearby and are very friendly and accommodating. Absolutely no regrets with this rental. The only (very small) drawback is that the short private road that accesses the cabin is gravel and quite steep and curvy. It was a bit of a scary drive the first time up the driveway, but was much less intimidating after a trip or two up and down.

A HIDDEN GEM

  • 5 of 5

If there was a check list of the perfect spot every check would have been checked off and then some. (Treats for not only us but for Cullie was such a nice surprise - Cullie is pup)!

The weather could not have been more perfect – even if it rained all weekend it still would have been amazing because the cabin alone is just awesome!

I will be back to the sweet little gem hidden away in one of my most favorite places on earth!

Outstanding Cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is tucked away with lots of privacy, yet you are in town in just minutes! We've stayed in many cabins and this one is spotless. It has all the comforts of home, lovely view, nice deck and a perfect spot for relaxation. It was lovely to sit on the deck and listen to the brook below. If you love to gaze at the stars, this is the right spot to view them on a clear night right from the hot tub! Kim and Josh are very helpful and lovely hosts. We were tickled to fine marshmallows, crackers and chocolate on the kitchen counters so we could enjoy the fire pit and roast marshmallows, etc. You will also enjoy the beautiful pottery in the cabin, which I learned was from our talented hostess, Kim. You can't go wrong with this cabin. We had a great time and look forward to returning next year.
