We love this area because of the wonderful scenery, outdoor activities, and relaxed Mountain Lifestyle! The Owners of this cabin agree, this cabin is located in the heart of the hiking, biking, fishing, and rafting 'hub'!

This cabin was built in 2012 with exceptional amenities, an amazing pristine setting, and professionally decorated!

This site is ideal for privacy and relaxing along side the noisy creek...

I am fortunate to be the property 'Manager' - Kathleen

Presently, this cabin offers one of a kind amenities and a private road to the Nantahala Outdoor Center. Easy access to the Tsali Recreational Center, Whitewater Rafting, the Nantahala River, and Lake Fontana

Perfect getaway

There's not much I can say other than what the other reviews have said. This is one of the nicest cabins I've been in, and the fact that they allow dogs is both surprising and wonderful. It seems as if each architectural and design decision went "let's go nicer." Kitchen had everything, furniture was great, back patio was great, path down to the creek was great, the hot tub placement is amazing (under the trees, but 10 feet from the bathroom), etc. The place is in a new gated community development, but it's the only house built so far. There is a house across the street (a ways away), but other than that, you're isolated. The combination of great views and the creek right outside is great.

A few clarifications, as I like folks to know the gritty details that might or might not matter to them:
* There really aren't many walking trails behind the cabin...it's more of a couple of paths to the creek. But, there are tons of hiking trails that you can easily get to if you drive a few minutes. The welcome book in the cabin has a map to a very close one.
* The wireless internet is actually a place to plug in your own hotspot....not your cell phone as a hot spot, not your router, but an actual hotspot (I haven't seen many people have one of these). So keep that in mind, as there is minimal cell coverage and I hardly ever got 3G coverage.
* The driveway doesn't make it up to the door - it's about a 50 foot walk on the little gravel stones from the end of the driveway to the front door. Not a big deal, except some more senior folks might want to note this when carrying heavy items.
* The creek isn't deep at all (it was ankle deep at most when we were there), so you can't really fish, but it's fast-moving and very "gurgling" - the sounds are very relaxing. You can't hear it if you're inside (so it won't keep you awake if it bothers you), but you can open a window, and it's very loud - amazing to fall asleep to.

You can't go wrong with this cabin, seriously. I've stayed in several, and the location, niceness, allowing pets, etc. is top notch. You'll pay a little more, but I believe the extra benefits far outweigh the extra costs.

Owner's Response: Dear Greg,

Thank You so much for the rave review, we are so glad to hear how well you enjoyed the cabin! You are so right, photos do not capture the beauty of the cabin and pristine surroundings!
Inside the welcome book, there is a map of the actual trails, the path's you mentioned are not true hiking trails, they just "guide" you to the creek and recreation area/firepit by the creek. They are more of a landscape accent.
I am not sure which Company you use for cell service, but the major carriers (like Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, etc... have the best signal). In the Mountains, all service to cellular devices and gps will go in and out due to the rural environment...
The best thing to do, no matter where you stay, is to make sure there is a land line to forward your phone to if you have urgent calls to accept.

I look forward to booking your next vacation and Thank You again!

Kathleen

Perfect hideaway!

Our visit was wonderful! This retreat is not like other cabins or vacation rentals because it is very private and full of luxurious amenities. It has all new high end appliances, gorgeous wood flooring, huge master bath and beds that are very comfortable. The property is beautiful with the creek running alongside adds to an atmosphere of calm serenity. Although not far from Bryson City or NOC, we loved the place so much that we ended up skipping these areas most of our stay to rest and relax either in the hot tub or on the screened in porch.

Owner's Response: Thank You so much for taking the time to write a wonderful review of Watia Creekside Retreat. You are spot on when you said it is "something special", that is difficult to capture with a camera!
We hope you will come back soon!

Perfect Cabin for our group

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 15, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
This cabin was absolutely perfect, the place is even nicer in real life than the pictures. We thoroughly enjoyed the landscaping and outdoor amenities of the cabin as well as relaxed inside the well appointed rooms. All of the furniture and decorations were top-notch. The beds were extremely comfortable and the linens were cozy.

Kathleen was very easy to work with and even accommodated our last minute change of plans to add a few extra days (luckily there was availability).

I highly recommend taking a stroll in the neighborhood and enjoy the views at sunset and sunrise. The picnic area down by the lake is very relaxing and offers up a chance for some exercise walking up and down the roads.

I have already recommended this place to family and friends that will be in the area soon, and I plan on making a return visit in the near future.

The location was close enough to town to get the things that you need and to enjoy the NOC, but at the same time, you felt like you were peacefully in the middle of nowhere as traffic was limited and the wildlife was abundant.

Owner's Response: Thank You so much for the wonderful review! Future Guests love to hear previous Guests point of view, and yours is very well spoken! I am glad to hear you got to use the Picnic area down by the Lake, we are really looking forward to the completion of the Docks and Swim platform!
You are your friends are welcome back anytime!

Wonderful place in the mountains west of Asheville. Property was impeccable and beautifully decorated. Photos don't fully give justice to the place. Plenty of river activities nearby. Asheville is a bit of a trek but no problem for a day's adventure to visit galleries, restaurants, etc.

When we opened the door, our jaws dropped! This place is incredible! This cabin is in an excellent location for a Western North Carolina mountain getaway. Very private and quiet, even though it's right on the back road from the highway. It's about a 30 minute drive to downtown Bryson City. Convenient for day trips to Cherokee attractions, GSMNP, Franklin gem-mining, and do-able for the Biltmore in Asheville. The cabin has everything you could ask for in a mountain get-away. Fireplaces, outdoor firepit, hot tub, open floor plan kitchen/living room, screened-in outdoor deck, creek side location provides a very special ambiance. No long range views from cabin, but it's only a short ride up to the top of the mountain for great views from the deck. The decor is top notch and the kitchen had everything we needed for preparing our meals. We drove the back road from the cabin to the waterfall trail, it was a nice little hike. We tried to go over to the NOC but the back gate had an additional lock on it, not sure if that is permanant or not? We drove over to the NOC later in the day, about a 15 minute drive. The only minor downsides we encounted was the lack of WIFI, there was an available Hot Spot booster, but without your own Hot Spot, there is no internet. Also, no cellphone reception at the cabin. Without internet/cell service, we could not access our online music library, email etc. It would of been nice to have a CD player or radio to hear music with. There is an iPod dock/speaker if you bring your own mp3 player. The only other minor issue was the mirror in the master bathroom. I think it was designed for people over 5'10". I'm on the short side (5'3"), and could only see the top half of my head when standing at the sink. It would of been nice to have a small make-up mirror like they have in hotels, to accomodate us vertically challenged adults. But these were only minor issues compared to how much we really enjoyed soaking in the hot tub at night, roasting marshmallows in the outdoor firepit next to the creek, playing games upstairs in the game room and enjoying the peace and quiet. We would absolutely stay here again, just bring your own Hot Spot & make-up mirror ;) Recommendations: (1) Bryson City Visitors Center, very friendly folks with lots of info, including discount tix for Biltmore. (2) Cork and Bean Restaurant, excellent food and great selection of beer/wine/coffee. (3) Tumbling Waters trout pond, catch your own dinner! (4) Mason Mountain Mine

Owner's Response: Dear Tim and Kim,
Thank You so much for your 5 star review of the Cabin and amenities! You are so right, the photos do not capture the Beauty of this cabin and the Peaceful Atmosphere of the Creekside Setting!
We are always looking for ways to improve our Guests Mountain Vacation experience and appreciate your "heads up" regarding the make up mirror. We recently placed a fabulous "touch light" mirror in the cabin for your next stay!

We now offer use of a Hot Spot (small fee will apply) for Guests that do not have their own wireless internet to plug in to the booster.

I hope you enjoyed the free local and long distance provided by the Owners as well as the music stations on the Satellite Package. Cell signal can be "sketchy" in Mountain terrain, but does work best in the front of the house for some reason.
You and your Family are welcome any time! J&J

Notes:
Newly completed in 2013 You can now enjoy Fontana Lake Front (private) just a few minutes drive from the Cabin! This beautiful Park Like setting offers shaded benches and Picnic Tables along side Lake Fontana! There are covered boat slips available, a beautiful Sun Deck, ladder to easily get in and out of the water, and lots of fish, so bring your pole! The docks float, so in the summer you are swimming and boating in Lake Fontana. In the winter, when the water levels are let down, you can fly fish off the dock as it becomes 'white water'. In the event of a power outage (not common, but does sometimes happen) there is a whole house generator!
