Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 4-6

Are you looking for a mountain getaway that offers peace and tranquility, but is still close to all the action in the Smokies? Come stay a while at the Little Cove Cabin and find what you've been looking for!

Tucked away in a little cove in the woods, you can relax on the large front porch and watch the abundant wildlife around you or swing in the hammock in the front yard while listening to the babbling brook near by. Wild turkeys, raccoons, rabbits, foxes, coyotes, and even an occasional catamount and black bear have all been seen here!

Hike through the acres of woods that surround the cabin, or fish for rainbow and speckled trout in the bold creek just down the road. In the evenings, you can roast marshmallows at the fire pit where you can sometimes hear an old Barred Owl hooting in the trees nearby. Take a long stroll up the East Fork creek where 100+ year old farm houses, grazing horses and cattle, and rustic old barns and silos whisper the stories from a bye gone era.

Newly renovated, this romantic little A-Frame log cabin has all the modern comforts of home while maintaining the rustic nostalgia of a cozy little cabin in the woods! The cabin has a queen-sized bed in the downstairs bedroom and a second queen-sized bed in the loft bedroom. There is also a sleeper sofa in the living area that helps to accommodate up to 6 people. A fully equipped kitchen and separate laundry room have everything you will need for your stay. The cabin also has wireless internet access throughout and a flat screen HDTV with Directv programming. Outside, there is a Weber gas grill, dining and picnic tables and plenty of seating for enjoying meals outside. Also, our newly installed 6 person hot tub is perfect for a relaxing soak after a long day of fun in the mountains.

Conveniently located only 10 minutes from the charming town of historic Dillsboro and 15 minutes from Sylva, Franklin, and Western Carolina University. The towns of Cherokee and Waynesville are just a 30 minute or less drive away.

If your looking for a cozy place to relax, decompress, and get back to nature, you will find everything you're looking for in the Little Cove!

About Kimberly Gray

My husband and I live and work in Sylva and are busy parents to our 4 small children. My husband works for the phone company and I am a potter that enjoys playing in the mud all day. We feel very blessed to be able to live and raise our children in these beautiful mountains.

Kimberly Gray purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Kimberly Gray chose Sylva

This property has been in my family for over 100 years. Growing up in Maryland, I have many fond childhood memories of my family's regular visits to the mountains and staying in the Little Cove. Playing in the woods and catching crawdads in the creek with my brother were some of my favorite things to do.

Originally built in the 1970's, the aging Little Cove cabin was in need of some TLC. As a result, my husband and I began a 2 year 'rebuild'. The result was a brand new home with the nostalgic charm of an old mountain A-Frame cabin. We are proud of the hard-work and love we've poured into this cabin and hope that many families will now make special memories of their own in the Little Cove.

Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family has had the pleasure of staying at this property three times over the past few years. Wonderful location to get away from it all and gather together as a family to make great memories among the mountains of Western North Carolina! Our family dogs are welcome to join us in our "home away from home" and this special amenity is greatly appreciated. The Kairis and Travis Family

Exactly as Described and Shown!

  • 5 of 5

Great Little Cabin in the Woods! We enjoyed our stay in this home and in the Sylva area. This is a very clean, convenient little getaway with a great hot tub and lots of privacy. The owners are very responsive and we appreciate them allowing us to bring our fur baby! Don't hesitate to book with Kim and Josh!

Beautiful cabin

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful little cabin immensely. The cabin was very comfortable and well equipped. This was our first time in the Sylva area and we will be back soon. Hopefully this cabin will be available again because we would not hesitate to stay here again. Thank you Kim for all the extra touches that made us feel at home.

Sylva cabin

  • 4 of 5

What a great little cabin. We were there for a weekend and then traveled on to a conference. The cabin was beautiful and well furnished. The downstairs bed slept wonderfully. This cabin

is perfect for a couple! Loved the hot tub and outdoor area-- they just begged you to come sit and relax. Closed enough to Dillsboro/Sylva to go eat or explore. Beware of mischief makers who set alarm clocks for midnight!

Lovely Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this cabin to celebrate our anniversary and we really enjoyed our stay. Our favorite part was definitely sitting in the hot tub and looking out over woods. We cooked several meals during our stay and felt that the kitchen was well stocked and that the grill worked great. The cabin was clean and the owner added some very nice personal touches. The front porch was great for hanging out on and playing games at the big table. Our puppy also had a great time running up and down the hill to the creek chasing sticks. The wooded setting is very nice but we were not able to find any true hiking trails right from the cabin. The owners take great care of this property.

The moment we arrived to this wonderful cabin we were welcomed by a note and treats for our dogs. The accommodations were immaculate. The setting is wonderful. We had a great long weekend! The cabin has everything needed to be comfortable, relax and enjoy the company of your significant others (pets and humans). Thank you for the wonderful memories and sharing your special place.
