Buying the Simple Times Cabin was a fulfillment of a 'dream' that we have had for years. We had been looking for a place in the mountains for several years. One day we happened to be looking at some property on Dicks Creek Road. Once we saw the property that we originally came to view, we knew that it wasn't for us, but like always we went on up the road to see what else we could find. When we came to the gravel road, we both got interested in what we were seeing. A gravel road, a roaring creek, and a beautiful forest-what more could we ask for. When we pulled over the bridge that leads you onto Choice Place we immediately got out. My husband said that the smile on my face said it all. The sound of the rushing creek and the beautiful woods that surrounded were absolutely amazing.
Dicks Creek runs in front of our cabin.
Our property backs up to the Nantahala National Forest.
Simple Times is the perfect cabin to go for a getaway from the hustle and bustle of everday life. We spent a very nice, relaxing weekend at the cabin. The cabin is about 10 minutes from the closet town, but far enough away far town on a gravel road so you feel secluded. We really enjoyed sitting on the porch, swinging on the swing, listening to the birds, wathcing fire flies at night and walking down by the creek to roast smores. Our favorite part was sleeping with the windows open and allowing the sound of the creek to rock us to sleep. It truly is an amazing place. We definitely plan on going back in the future. The cabin is about 25-30 minutes from Cherokee. The weather was absolutely amazing....high 60's while we were there. It truly is a place to go to ENJOY the simples things in life. We definitely will be visting this cabin again in the future. Thanks Again Aimee and Paige for sharing your cabin with us!!!!!
The cabin is beautiful, as well as the surroundings!
Aimee and Paige are wonderful to work with and very friendly.
The ad describes it well but you have to see it to appreciate the natural beauty and peacefulness.
My husband and I spent our anniversary here and it was exactly what we wanted.
The cabin is clean and the amenities are pretty new. We were there on the 80 degree days and it never felt like it at the cabin- inside or out! It is nestled in the trees and it stayed cool the whole time. We opened the windows at night and ran the ceiling fans and it never got hot at all. As a matter of fact, we ran the ceiling fans all day and it never got hot inside the cabin. My husband is very hot natured and he was comfortable the whole time!
The property is clean and so naturally beautiful we just couldn't get enough of sitting outside on the deck or in the swing or by the creek.
Hearing that water run was very pleasing, along with the birds singing and watching fire flies at night! Perfectly romantic !
There's an amazing trout pond nearby in Ela and a little town there also with all the stores you might need.
The mountains in Whittier are so amazingly beautiful! Everywhere we drove was such a site to see.
That's not our first time to NC mountains but our first time in Whittier.
We will definately go back !
I fully enjoyed my stay at "Simple Times". The cabin is very clean and cozy, with all the accommodations you could need. The location is perfect with easy access to the best the Smokies has to offer. Aimee was a pleasure to deal with and was extremely accommodating to my last minute plans for a weekend getaway. Don't hesitate to book "Simpler Times," I know I will be back in the future!
I recommend this cozy cabin to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway. All my expectations were met and the owners are awesome! You won't be disappointed booking this cabin for a holiday, weekend getaway, special celebration, or family vacation. Also, the location is great for visiting Cherokee or to go ride the train in Dillsboro. Why stay in a hotel when you can stay in a cabin? Thanks again!!
This is the best cabin I have ever stayed in. It was very clean and affordable. Paige and Aimee were easy to work with. Dicks Creek Road has a beautiful creek view. The road gets even prettier as you travel up the gravel road to the cabin. I enjoyed my morning cup of coffee as I was enjoying the sounds of the rushing creek and admiring the fall leaves. This cabin truly does take you back to the "simpler times" in life as you are enjoying the nature that surrounds you.
