Our cabin is nestled in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains right beside a rippling stream. Come and enjoy your morning coffee out on the deck with the rabbits and turkeys that just happen to be passing by on their morning walk. In the afternoon you might take a walk or just sit and sip a cold glass of tea and enjoy the peace and quiet like you have never experienced before. At night you will be lulled to sleep by the rippling waters or chirping crickets. Even though we are secluded it doesn't take long to be back into civilization from 20 minutes to an hour depending on what you fancy, you will find it close by.

Glenn and I have been married for 36 years and have lived here most of our lives. We have 2 daughters and 4 wonderful grandchildren. Living the simple life is what we enjoy most and find that others seem to like it as well.
The Owner purchased this cabin in 2000
When the property came up for sell we jumped at the chance to have a place that our family and friends could come back to and spend some quiet time. We have just in the past few years decided to open the cabin up for rental and have been blessed with some great summertime renters. We only rent the cabin from Memorial Day thru the fall color season.
You do not have to bring anything but your food and toiletries. We provide your linens and the kitchen is fully equipped.
We stayed in July 2010 and were not expecting much more than a basic place to spend the night for such a low price. We were pleasantly surprised. It is definitely not a luxury cabin - more like a quirky little grandmother's house, but it does have comfortable beds and a great deck directly over the little creek. My kids loved playing in the creek and the yard. The house is clean, has comfortable beds, and the landscaping is very well maintained. The kitchen and living room are very small but we spent most of the time on the deck. For the price it beats a cheap motel room any day. We only saw a few cars pass during our stay, and the only sounds you hear are the creek and the birds. The owners were very nice to deal with also. Great location for mountain biking, rafting, kayaking, and enjoying Fontana Lake.
We really enjoyed our 3-day stay at this creek-side Almond cabin. Favorite feature: outdoor deck nestled directly over a small stream. The backdrop of creek sounds makes it really nice to sit on the deck and read, nap, or just relax. The cabin is easy to reach, but is on a secluded drive with no traffic.
Almond is only minutes away from some beautiful smoky mountain recreation areas, like the Nantahala River (rafting, trails, etc.), the scenic spots on Wayah Creek, the Tsali recreation area (hiking, biking, horse trails and boat launch), the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, the Cherohala skyway, and of course Fontana Lake. We especially enjoyed hiking around the edge of Fontana Lake at Tsali.
The cabin owners were extremely pleasant and flexible. If you want to get away for a real break and experience the beauty of the mountains, this is a great place.
