Coker Creek Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

The BEE HIVE is a true log cabin built in 2000; it is very private with its own stocked lake for fishing. It is located inside the Cherokee National Forest and is located close to lots of activities from gold panning, hiking, fishing & antiquing to numerous waterfalls. We are minutes away from the famous Cherohala Skwyway and close to the Dragon's Tail - a motorcyclist's dream! It truly is a 'paradise lost' It is not luxurious or large. But as you cross the first creek, you begin to breathe more slowly and all your cares go away. Because we are mountain-top with an amazing 360 degree view and tremendous privacy, you will get your money's worth for this log cabin. Because of it's altitude (2200 ft above sea level) and privacy, be prepared for a 2 mile drive up a mountain road! Coker Creek is very historical, and we have many books written about the area. Hikers love to come here, and the Benton-McKaye trail is only minutes away. Everything in the cabin is modern from the leather sofa with recliners on each end to new porch furniture. Bring your 10 lb or less dog or cat and enjoy the seasons here in Coker Creek. You will want to come back each season. While you are out in the area you will find the most wonderful people from artists to authors who have chosen to make this community their home. If you do not like seclusion and mountain living, this is not for you. If you do, it's Heaven on earth. We have stocked the lake with Bluegill and Bass. It is our vacation home as well as yours, and we love sharing it

. Coker Creek is also close to the Olympic white-water rafting Ocoee lake, Blue Ridge Ga and Murphy North Carolina. The views from the mountains of our area, including the Cherohala, the Bald River Falls, Coker Creek falls, and other mountains are more than comparable to the great Smoky Mountains. We are also not far from the Appalachian Trail. Come sit on the porch and stay awhile. We have the lowest rates for the amenities that are offered.

We enjoy the area very much, and find so much to do that we have to put it on our 'let's do this next time' list. It IS rustic, after all, it's a log cabin through and through. The Cherokee National Forest is our nearest neighbor, so you will not hear 4 wheelers, big trucks nor traffic of any kind. You do cross a creek to get up the mountain, which is delightful to youngsters. You do not need a 4 wheel drive unless it is rainy. Our little Smart car made it many times.

The sunrise and sunset views are undescribable, especially from the hot tub, which is cleaned after every person leaves. We have our own staff who maintain the cabin, and they also serve as your concierge!

The two bedroom one bath home with a wood burning fireplace has provided peace and comfort to those who needed solace; those in grief, those celebrating milestones, those recuperating after surgery, and those who wished to come alone to read, write and regroup. We have been told that the screened in porch swing called out to them early in the morning and late in the evening.

Book today. We have the lowest rates in the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had searched your part of E TN for what we hoped to be a relaxing and relevant time away from E TX. We hit the jackpot. We did nothing but sleep, eat good, and fish. Caught some fish both days. THis was exactly what we were looking for and couldn't have been more pleased. All the bee stuff you have around the cabin was quirky and fun. We can tell you love your cabin and we will tell others about it.

We love to go to the cabin to relax. We take Max, our poodle, with us. We have the lake nearby for paddleboating and fishing, and we take our motorcycle and ride the Cherohala or the back roads of the mountains. We've added the screened in back porch and deck, and we have found so many exciting places to hike and visit. We are just plain people who have been blessed with this cabin and we want others to be blessed by it as well.We have met the most wonderful people who have made Coker Creek their home. They have lived all over the world and traveled many miles, yet have decided to live here.

John Barnes purchased this cabin in 2006

We chose the mountains of Coker Creek/Tellico Plains and the Cherohala Skyway because of the small town atmosphere and the quietness of the area. No loud noises, no sounds except for the birds and the gentle winds. No putt putt, no bungee jumpers, no go carts but certainly nice restaurants, fly-fishing, rafting down the river, and just sitting in the river in a lawn chair.

The very nicest thing is not seeing any houses....just looking at the mountains from the front and the back porch. Starting the gravel road and crossing the first creek and seeing the rushing water gives the sense of peace and rest. The next creek you actually drive through, and start up the mountain, and as you pass the mountain laurel and rhododendron you get the sense of finding true peace.

AWESOME VIEW

  • 5 of 5
We chose this cabin for our anniversary trip. It was great. It was peaceful, quiet and quaint. The decor was inviting and the cabin was clean. The owners were extremely helpful in answering our questions. We took our son who is in a wheelchair, it is not accessible but we managed and he loved it. We highly recommend this to anyone just wanting to escape from it all.

PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing retreat! The owners are excellent hosts -- they followed up with me before the trip to see if I was still interested in renting when a few emails were lost to my spam folder and continued to be wonderful from then on. They were very accommodating to our schedule, allowing us to arrive and leave when we wanted. The cabin was absolutely beautiful -- away from other houses, at the top of a "mountain", beautiful views all around, and a luxurious interior with great amenities. We had a great time enjoying the cabin and hot tub, sitting by the water, and hiking nearby trails. Buck's Bald is a must-see! It was great to see different sights in this area of the country that we never would otherwise. We can't wait to come back.

AMAZING AS USUAL

  • 5 of 5
This was our third stay at The Beehive. We cannot ever say enough positive things about this gorgeous, peaceful and comfortable cabin. We keep coming back because we know that we will be able to truly relax here, whether it's sitting on the front porch, hearing the wind roar or sitting in front of a crackling fire

A WONDERFUL TRIP

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough about the cabin and the location. We were looking for a place that was essentially the anti-Gatlinburg, all the beauty minus the crowds and commercialization, well we found it here! We took our four year old twins with us and when we left on Sunday one of them cried and begged we come back again soon, and after staying here a few days how could my husband and I argue with that request! The utter silence and sounding beauty can't be described, like many other reviewers said, it sounds almost too good to be true, well it is not. Breathing in the refreshing air, sitting in the enclosed porch, soaking in the hot tub and just getting away from it all gave our family a trip we had never experienced before. One filled with no rushing, simple relaxing and genuine family time, surrounding by all of nature's beauty. Thank you, bee hive we hope one day to return!

Wow is the only thing I can say. Everything was on the mark even the romantic rain. If I had had my way I would have never left. This is truly my dream when we retire. I am still speechless. You and John have truly thought out everything that anyone would need or could need.

Notes:
This cabin is THE place for those who seek solitude and quiet. The front porch(with a huge homemade swing) faces Unicoi Mountain and the back with the hot tub and new screened porch faces the sunset and Starr Mountain. WINTER VIEWS are 360 degree views with the leaves off the trees. You will hear birds singing, the rustle of wind in the trees, and you may see wild turkey, deer, and wild game. It's hard to describe the uniqueness of this cabin, as it is truly one of a kind. It's called the BEE HIVE and it is decorated with a bee theme. The owners use it as a second home, so all one needs is available. While 3 miles away to the nearest grocery store and gas station, it's still very private with no cars passing, nor horns blowing. Many people do not leave the mountain at all, while others use it as a base to hike, ride motorcycles, and go goldpanning. It's the lowest priced cabin in the area with the most to offer. .
