Overview

Whittier Cabin Rental Photos and Description

5-star, Majestic-180*-view, ON WATER, 3-Brm/2-Bth, Full service, Fam-Pet friend

The Tuckasegee River’s abundant wild life and degrees of strength, are breathtaking and worth the perch. In fact, this magnificent log home's name, was inspired by the oil painting, “Following The River”, by Robert Duncan. The pictorial imagery of Native Americans on horseback crossing a wintery river's edge could secretly come to life in this uniquely tranquil, unobstructed river view. You couldn’t imagine a better surrounding of mountains, woods, and river; yet you are still convenient to Bryson City, Cherokee Casino, National Parks, and all the area attractions.

The architectural accents and exquisite custom decor makes this home worthy of publication. The cabin features 2,000 sq feet of living space with hand laid native slate flooring throughout, a chef’s kitchen, aged-200 year old white pine logs, two soaring stone fireplaces, and the high vaulted A-framed ceiling’s with drapery-free windows overlook a 180 degree unobstructed view. Gentle rock steps travel down to river's edge to provide the guests with easy access to Swim, Kayak, Tube, or Trout Fish our river's bank at their leisure. Enjoy the nesting Bald Eagles, the tranquil sounds of a flowing river and the peaceful cool nights by a roaring fire-pit.

Many of this cabin's 5-star features, will unite you one with nature as you live literally on the river bend with an openness, style, and remoteness unmatched.

Opened as an All Season Vacation Cabin Rental, this homes entrance driveway is on a State maintained road. It is easily accessible for cars, trailers, RV’s and/or motor pulling vehicles.

No snow tires are needed.

A full 24 hour Caretaker/Concierge staff is provided year round. Special Event Planning, Large group or Single Meal Catering, Babysitting, Pet walking, Laundry and Maid and/or daily turn down services, can be designed to fit our guests' needs at their requests.

This home is centrally located between the entrance of the Smoky Mountain National Park, Blue Ridge Parkway, Cherokee's Harrah's Casino & Golf course, Downtown Bryson City's shops, restaurants, and Smoky Mountain Railroad Train Depot.

Enjoy the convenience of a put-in and/or take-out of your tubes or Kayaks right off your vacation rentals back yard.

Charming Log Cabin

  • 5 of 5
I would highly recommend this location for a comfortable get away. The staff had the wine and cheese basket on the counter and had the fireplace going for us on arrival. If you are wanting a fun girls weekend away this is the place to stay b/c the staff will offer you personal attention. We will be booking this location again.

amazing location

  • 5 of 5
AMAZING LOCATION. We got in late and was grateful there wasn't just a key at the door, but greeted like a family guest. After getting lost, long drive, so thankful. The FTR caretaker was great. She listened to our wish list, where to find the local casino, best horse Back riding, Fly fishing classes, and a watercolor painting class....even our special needs for groceries she nailed where to go? She made suggestions and helped us book most of our activities within the hour. My family can not say enough about the calm, southern kindness and the over all efficiency of everyone we met while staying at cabin. Plus, Plus, Plus! We really enjoyed the local unadvertised attractions, and local hang outs that were recommended. Loved the Smoky mountain train going by, everyone waves at us, so local and perfect.

We stayed 7 nights went to the recommended Local Trout Farm, a huge Local Blue Berry Farm and two amazing Old North Carolina Inns for dinners out.

The Cabin was all we dreamed of inside and out. The yard so beautifully landscaped on the river bank. The photos just don't do it all justice. LOVED the Hammock! River Sunsets! Perfect memory - Cooked trout outside at the fire pit, drank locally brewed beers from Bryson City, caught lighting bugs and our dogs swam in the river bed for hours.

When you need peace...

  • 5 of 5
Staying at Following the River cabin is one of the most peaceful experiences of my life. Not only is the cabin itself a gem, beautifully appointed, cozy and welcoming, the sound of rolling Tuckesegee River is amazing and calming. Add in stellar sunsets, misty magical mornings with mist rising off the water, and millions of lighnting bugs at nighttime, and staying here just can't be topped. Having a caretaker located downstairs, but respectfully quiet and private, was comforting. Everything was just as it was promised and I would love to visit again soon.

PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Wow. This place goes down on my list of favorite places to be. If there were a 6-star option, I would have chosen that. My family of 6 stayed the weekend here and had a blast. There is a beautiful 2-faced fireplace that we utilized every night. The house is lavishly decorated with old books, games, American Indian decor, and art. We loved that it didn't feel sterile. It was like something out of a movie. The caretaker is very sweet and went above and beyond (including prepping the fireplaces) to make us feel comfortable. Nearby, there is a little town….if you want to get out and have a beer at the brewery, antique, or eat great food. It is the perfect place to just getaway and sip hot tea, read a book, and enjoy the beautiful views. I can't wait to plan our next visit!!!

Mixed Reaction

  • 3 of 5
My family of 6 adults, a toddler and an infant stayed at Following the River for the week of Thanksgiving. I have to give this cabin a mixed review. It was very well appointed and we loved the furniture and the decor. There was something to catch your eye everywhere you looked. The setting is also very attractive, and we loved being on the river and loved watching the train go by across the river. It is close to the road, but I expected that because I am familiar with the area and knew there wasn't a lot of room between the road and the river. There was a little traffic noise, but it wasn't bad.
However, in our opinion, it was not quite what it was described to be. This sentence was the one that tripped us up the most: "French doors lead you out to a 500-square-foot, enclosed family room" This room was the largest living area and the ONLY dining area. It is NOT heated and cooled. We started a fire and there was one electric heater, but it was cold. The caretaker did bring us another heater which helped. The only other seating level on the main floor consists of 2 recliners which will not recline because they are backed up against the windows and a very narrow bench. Not room for 6 adults. I am thankful that we had not planned on anyone sleeping on the futon on the enclosed porch! Other items in the description were not exactly as I expected. The kitchen was cute and functional, but small. We kept getting in each other's way. Also, it didn't matter to us, but I do not know 2 adults that could "Relax in our two person native slate jacuzzi tub experience." It was a jacuzzi, but just a regular width.
As someone else mentioned, there is a caretaker coming and going from the bottom level but that was no problem at all for us.
I can see this as a great place for a smaller group, but it was tight for us. The description just wasn't quite accurate and we were disappointed that we were cold/cool in the large family/dining area.
