Dave Wiley purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Dave Wiley chose Indian Rock Springs

We spent over a year searching for the ideal location in this area of the Smoky Mountains and found it here at Persimmon Creek Cabin. The property is 3+/- acres and our creek runs through the middle of the property just below the cabin. Unlike most of the other properties we previewed, it's very private here in that you cannot see any other cabins from here!

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is located in a picturesque community of upscale homes which are spread out with 3-4+ acres of thick woods in between. This provides lots of privacy and solitude yet it's easy to get to and not way out in the boonies.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It's exactly what we came for - rest and relaxation! The cabin is so quiet and has everything we need. The scenery to and from anywhere is very majestic. The local people are warm and very helpful. Thank you very much for allowing us this wonderful time here at your cabin!

Cozy Country Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The large large windows and sky lights allowed everyone to enjoy the beautiful wooded lot with flowering rhododendron , a great carpet of moss and every shade of southern green vegetation !! The stream passing by the deck and side porches was music to our ears . Many ferns trimmed the banks of the fast flowing clear stream . Two graceful dear visited one afternoon . The surrounding countryside was so peaceful. We made a friend in the pasture nearby and even took a picture of him and his barn to paint pictures of later. We enjoyed several outings during the week. The John Campbell Craft Center was a treat as well as the NOC on the Nanahalla River , historical Murphy was fun too. We found the cabin to be clean uncluttered and well equipped . The heated bathrooms would be great for a Winter trip. All and all a great trip to the Mountains. Thank you Dave for sharing you home . We took a couple of bochures and will share with friends !!

Cozy Cabin in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

Our Stay was very pleasant and the Cabin was well equipped for a relaxing and bonding with Nature Kinda Stay. The Cabin was very clean and well arranged for comfort, the beds were comfortable and everything works. We stayed for 8 nights and enjoyed the proximity to Tennessee, Georgia and South Carolina. My family and I recommend this Cabin for your future stays and we look forward to booking a Summer Stay as well.

Perfect mountain cabin getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The setting and the cabin both contribute to an overwhelming ambiance of solitude. The sounds from the creek complete the experience. We were fortunate enough to experience a generous snowfall toward the end of our stay, which turned the entire property into a panorama of endless Christmas Card worthy scenery.

WE will definitely be booking this property again.
