WATERFALL COVE-SECLUDED CABIN IN A FOREST COVE SURROUNDED BY A MELODIOUS CREEK

Bryson City Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Comforting 1700 Sq.ft. two story 3/2 Mountain Cabin- Stress Reliever's Dream

Cabin In Waterfall Cove. Sit next to the most musical creek you'll ever hear. You won't want to leave! The newly renovated vintage cedar two-story cabin in the Nantahala Forest sleeps 6-8, is situated in a private cove . Year round access and comforts, with a long paved drive from hwy. Two large screened porches adjacent to the flowing creek are shaded by large hickory trees in a natural setting. Yet no long drives to all the places you want to visit including the Great Smokey Mtns. National Park (20 minutes away) New & Fully equipped modern kitchen. Open the windows in all bedrooms and sleep to the sounds of the melodious creek that flows from the waterfall all year round. The musical creek wraps around the cabin. 3 bedrooms with king, queen and twin beds respectively. Two new bathrooms, one downstairs and one upstairs. The screened back porch doubles as a sleeping area with a comfortable futon and the most favorite place to sleep. The living room is spacious and cozy with bay windows overlooking the creek, flat screen TV & convenient internet, wi-fi included. Full laundry room upstairs and extra storage for luggage and misc. large items. We took extra care to include the most comfortable mattress in each bedroom. We also took extra care to create numerous conversation areas so that even with 8 people there is always a place to 'get away' for private conversations rather than always having others 'underfoot' Enjoy your favorite book while sitting in one of two outdoor swings in the front or back terraces, on a bench by the creek, or rock in one of two large screen porches. The temperature here is always cooler due to the eco-rainforest environment. Walk to the secluded waterfall behind the cabin and refresh yourself in the spring-fed crystal water that flows into the creek or grill a steak or roast hot dogs from our stone fire pit and bar-b-que grills The beautiful old stone kitchen floor was preserved from the original farmhouse. Fully modernized retreat preserving its 1940's vintage ambiance. Offered for the first time to discriminating vacationers who are looking for something different.

I am a native Florida girl with an eye for adventure. I am a practicing attorney who is tired of the rat race (the rats were winning) and was looking for just the perfect place to retire. As a Floridian, I love the water but was tired of the 9 month of hot weather. I started searching for 'my little cabin by a creek' for several years but could not find the right spot. If it was quiet, didn't feel like living in a subdivision, had lots of nature, tall trees, and water close by to fish, swim and boat, it usually was too far from everything, hard to get to in winter, too remote for comfort, or was one of too many cabins advertised and made to look like a tacky Daniel Boone's place for tourist. One day I stumbled on this abandoned house that most would never look at twice and the rest is history. It was sitting lonesome in a cove surrounded by hills of giant hickory trees on three sides, not too visible from the Hwy, but just minutes from lots of rivers, lakes, trails, and 'adventure'. Strange was that the road was paved going in. Later I learned it was an abandon Hwy after the new Hwy 19/74 was built. The giant hickory trees were covered in vines, the creek was full of dead branches, overgrown, and the ravine in front was knee deep in Kudzu and hid the flowing stream. It had been on the market for several years, but perhaps others didn't see what I saw it could be. I couldn't get the vision of its potential out of my mind. Looking past the mildew, trash, vines, and Kudzu, and derelict appearance, I saw what it now has become, a stress-free retreat that replenishes my soul.

Theresa Wigginton purchased this cabin in 2012

To me the ideal retreat would have to have a creek to enjoy, but not one that I had to walk to experience. This property has the most musical little stream I've ever heard in all my searches. I was intrigued that with open windows, in nearly every room in the house I could hear the bubbling steam. Lying in a cozy bed or rocking on the porches and reading a good book, being lulled to sleep by the sounds of falling water is my idea of heaven on earth. I made sure the two porches with wooden floors, had rocking chairs, and I envisioned people sitting with a good glass of wine, reminiscing about the adventures they had that day. When I saw the ravine initially overgrown with Kudzu vines, I could imagine wildflowers and weeping willows swaying in sync with the music of the creek. In planning the remodel I wanted outdoor swings to sit and talk with my friends or just a quiet place to be alone. With much diligence and a desire to make it a happy place again, I began a six months remolding 'adventure'. Every room has been considered in making it cozy, convenient, and comfortable. After clearing the kudzu vines and planting grass in the ravine, I promptly planted three weeping willows to grow tall and provide cool shade for picnics by the creek that flows down through it. I brought in tree surgeons to trim the neglected giant hickories and dogwood that abound on the property. I personally searched for the right furniture and decorations that would be the icing on the cake. I have diligently photographed the metamorphosis and am proud to say the worm turned into a beautify butterfly!

Two large screened porches, a year-round cascading stream flows from the waterfall and circles the cabin from back to front and can be heard no matter where you sit. The tall hickory trees and dogwoods keep the property cool and shaded no matter what the temperature. I love being close to so many fun places within minutes of the cabin. The surrounding forest always gives peace to any weary traveler.

Nantahala Spring Break Trip

I found the cabin on VRBO and took one look and decided I had to go. Well, it did not disappoint. Everything about our stay was great. Even though it rained some, we had a great time. The setting for this cabin is wonderful. Your very own waterfall, flowing stream, fire pit, gas grill. The old stone floor in the kitchen adds a lot of character, while the modern kitchen appliances were very welcomed. The cabin is very comfortable for a cool climate. The gas fireplace/stove in the living area really heats the cabin quickly. There is no AC, and I don't think you would need it during any season. Ceiling fans are in most every room. The Screen porches are incredible, especially the back porch. The NOC is only one mile away and Bryson City is just 12 minutes down the road. Great views of the smoky mountains. The Tsali Recreation area is about 10 minutes away and has many miles of trails. We like to mountain bike and run on the trails, and these are some of the best in the southeast.
We will definitely be back to visit again.

Our Polar Express weekend

This cabin is absolutely gorgeous! I loved every square inch of it and the outside was just as wonderful. My family of 4 had a great time and had more than enough room. I hope to go back in warmer weather to really enjoy the waterfall and those great screened in porches! We fixed s'more's by the fire pit one night and kept all toasty and warm. We came in on a Thursday and rode the Polar Express on Friday and headed back home on Monday, we would have loved to have stayed longer but the kiddos had to go back to school. The kids loved the cabin as much as us. I can't wait to plan another get away to this great cabin. Loren was so helpful and so very friendly.

Quite simply, we had a fantastic and relaxing experience! The photographs are accurate and represent the conditions very well. Terri and Loren could not have been more helpful and we enjoyed their company during a couple of our many campfires. We are already planning our next trip to stay at the cabin.

My family and I enjoyed Glen Cove! It was so beautiful. The cabin was very clean and so cozy. The creek and waterfall near b,y along with the fire pit was just wonderful. No one wanted to go anyone. Everyone just enjoyed hanging around the cabin and the fire pit. The owner was wonderful. She was very nice and very helpful. She answered all of our questions and had everything in order. My family and I look forward to coming back to this same place. The only suggestion was from my mom (who is disabled and on a walking cane) she suggested maybe some rails or handle to hold onto while in the shower or getting in the shower. Other than that everyone had an awesome time! Thank again!

Antique shops, good restaurants galore or biking and hiking trails near by. If you just want to relax by our melodious creek in outside swings or rock on the large porches while listening to the creek, this is the place for you. The temperature is always 7-10 degrees cooler in the cove than elsewhere due to the rainforest Eco systems. Enjoy the beautiful waterfall just a short walk from the back porch. Fully equipped kitchen with farmhouse stone floors in this 3 bedroom-2 bath cabin, freshly renovated and new on the market for rental. The back porch overlooking the creek has a futon for extra sleeping for those who want to get the feeling of sleeping 'outdoors'. There are only 2 cabins in the cove and we own both of them. The second cabin is ' up in the trees' on the south wall of the cove and sleeps 4. It is a great place to add to your rental if you need room for more than 8 . Contact me for more details.
