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. Only 15 min. to the Smokey Mtn's Scenic By-way and one mile to the NOC (Nantahala Outdoor Center, official site of 2013 World Free-style Canoe Competition). 20 minutes to Cherokee Casino and Native American museum and out-door drama center. 12 minutes to the Smokey Mountain Scenic Railroad in Bryson City.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Nice cottage home that sleeps up to 6 very comfortably. Has a short trail behind house that takes you to a pretty nice sized waterfall which we used for our family photos. House has no AC but does appear to have heat and since it was summer we didn't use heat. Paddle fans abound and with windows opened we had nice cool nights for sleeping. There is a creek that runs alongside house which offers a very nice sound when sitting in either one of the two screened porches. On the back porch there is a futon which one of us slept on during some of the stay just to hear the musical sounds of the water. Nice outdoor swings and seating too. Kitchen came with everything needed and appliances were new looking. Decor is simply stated but perfect for this atmosphere of mountain life. We did have wifi however some phone providers do not work from here at this time but that has nothing to so with the house or owners. Towels and bedding were luxury new. Bathrooms all new. Water wasnt hot in showers but that could be altered by hot water heater setting though we sidnt touch that dueing our visit. We would and will rent this again and highly recommend it. PS: The only downfall was that the property signage is not lit to find easily at night and it sits as you come around a mountain corner so having lights at the sign would be a great help. That's the only issue we had...and we managed it too

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.

STUNNING CABIN! UNIQUE PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5
My family had the pleasure of staying at this cabin a few weeks ago for our summer vacation and this property did not disappoint! Having been newly renovated, the cabin is immaculate, with new furnishings throughout. Lovely decor that reflects the mountain lifestyle. The kitchen is beautiful as is the stone floor. The beds are oh so comfy with luxurious linens. The surrounding property is amazing...the creek that runs behind and alongside the cabin creates a soothing sound that can be heard all throughout the cabin. Keep the windows open! The waterfall in the back is a treat! My kids loved it! The owners have even taken the time to create a very nice path back to it. The fire pit is large and the wood is provided. Even though the property is right off the main road, the way the cabin sits with a ravine in the front, so that you are afforded privacy.

It is close to the Nantahala outpost and that is where we spent one day doing the zip park and rafting. Good BBQ at Big Wesser's! Bryson City is not too far away and is a nice town with shops and small restaurants to eat at. Since my guys are train fanatics, we had to take the train from the Bryson City depot over to Dillsboro for lunch. Bryson City has the closest grocery store, (if you are coming in from that way) be sure to stop and get groceries before arriving at the cabin! That saved a lot of time. We went tubing on Deep Creek - not only is that fun, but it's an inexpensive family activity! Be sure to pack a lunch! There are also wonderful hiking trails in the GSM Forest with more waterfalls.

We were fortunate in that the property owners, Theresa and Loren, were there for part of the week renovating the "tree house" next door. They are an absolute delight! Theresa gave us info about the surrounding area and directed us to an "off the grid" sightseeing route that would lead over to Franklin where we went gem mining. Loren was kind enough to provide us with some dry wood and help us get a fire started one night. The next day, he had left more for us!

My family is in complete agreement...there is no where else to stay in Bryson City! We will definitely be back!!

HEAVEN ON EARTH

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful place on earth. Their was 5 of us, an all girl vacation . The house is very comfortable and the water fall is spectacular, great for meditation and relaxing.
We were there 5 days and only left the house one day. The pictures you see on their web site is exactly what you will see when you arrive. Will go back again. The landlord (Warren) was a really nice guy.

One of the most relaxing vacations we've ever had. We had two families, total of 8. It seemed too small at first but with so much to do outdoors and the fabulous futon on the porch, it worked just fine. The house is very clean and well decorated. Will definitely stay there again.

PERFECT FOR FAMILY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband, two children, and my parents stayed at this charming cabin for a spring break getaway. The property is just beautiful! We loved the waterfall, and especially enjoyed the babbling brook encircling the cabin. We had plenty of space for the little time we spent in the cabin, and really enjoyed the front and back screened porches for sitting and relaxing. The owners were very pleasant, friendly, and helpful. We will definitely return!

FANTASTIC STAY AT WATERFALL COVE!

  • 5 of 5
We were very pleasantly surprised at the wonderful cabin! It had a gurgling brook beside that on many afternoons lulled me to sleep on the back porch futon with the wind chimes also serenading me. Our children had a wonderful time playing in the brook.

NANTAHALA SPRING BREAK TRIP

  • 5 of 5
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.

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.
