Almond Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6)

Are you looking for a clean, airy, comfortable, creekside cabin that's the perfect location for the best adventures the Appalachian Mountains have to offer? That describes A DOGWOOD COVE CABIN! From spring's dogwoods to the fall colors, anytime is a wonderful time to visit! After a day of exploring a hidden cove or spending time on a trail, your cozy mountain retreat will be waiting for you. The cabin is all there is on 18 wooded acres. Since we have only one cabin, while you're our guest your comfort and enjoyment is our highest priority. The cabin is outfitted with everything you might need. All you need to bring is your suitcase and groceries!

It's private, yet only a few minutes from the Nantahala River, Lake Fontana, the Appalachian Trail, horseback riding, the famous Tsali mountain bike trails and renowned fishing streams and rivers. Other activities within a 25 mile radius include the Cherokee Indian Reservation, the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, the Blue Ridge Parkway, trout farms, and much more. On the other end of the activity spectrum, a quiet day spent reading on the futon on the large screened-in porch is a favorite of many of our guests. Also on the porch is a picnic table; a wonderful setting for birdwatching, enjoying a meal or writing notes to friends back home. Sitting outside in the yard while grilling fresh trout, visiting, or just playing Frisbee can leave you wondering where the time has gone!

Here is a sampling of comments from our guest books...

* 'It's so peaceful and serene. The setting is absolutely beautiful. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for sharing this lovely place with us!'

* 'We are so appreciative of all the comforts of home. We love listening to the frogs and crickets at night. We picked blackberries down the road and made a cobbler. It's so nice to get away from our hectic lifestyles. It's been awesome.'

* 'What a private, beautiful location. We enjoyed knowing we weren't just in a house...but a home!' 'We had a great time! We were here for ten days and it wasn't long enough!'

* 'It was a perfect mountain getaway for our busy family of five. A Dogwood Cove Cabin is private, secluded and quiet yet near a lot of the recreational areas... It is also very clean and neat, which meant a lot since we had a toddler. We hope to be back to this cozy home away from home in the spring.'

Perfect Base For Adventure

  • 5 of 5
When my family looks for a vacation rental we search for a place with privacy yet proximity to all the activities we wish to take advantage of. For our visit to the Bryson City area we couldn't have been more pleased with our choice of A Dogwood Cove Cabin. Centrally located for paddling the Nanty, swimming in Fontana Lake, tubing Deep Creek and hiking in Great Smoky Mountains NP, it served as the perfect base camp for all our adventures. The owners, Janet and John, could not have been more welcoming and helpful. They are a wealth of information regarding the surrounding area and went out of their way to help us make the most of our visit and to make us feel at home. We look forward to the opportunity of sharing their property with them again in the (hopefully) not-too-distant future.

Terrific Cabin, Great Owners, Close to NOC

  • 5 of 5
Stayed three nights and my stay couldn't have been better. Cabin was perfect as a home base for visiting/exploring the Nanatahala Outdoor Center (5 minutes away), Joyce Kilmer Ntional Forest, Smoky Mountain National Park, Bryson City, Cherokee, and Fontana Lake. Extremely convenient and yet in a very nice hidden location. No noise, no traffic.......just privacy and peace and quiet. Cabin has a beautiful huge porch (winter visit so I didn't use it) and the bedrooms both had just been redone. Very neat and clean throughout. The owners were a pleasure to deal with.....I felt like I've known them for years. Will definitely stay here again.
