The Nugget on Coker unique cabin is located on a lovely creek in a small valley with a few other cabins. The location is very quiet and peaceful. The sounds of the creek, the breeze in the trees and birdsong are the greatest noise. Every detail in the newly refurbished cabin has been addressed to give you a comfortable, memorable visit. Local artisans designed and built the fireplace, gazebo and wrought iron stair railing. The new kitchen features a gas cooktop, electric oven, microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator with icemaker.
The first floor has an open floor plan with kitchen, living room and dining in one section. The game room and downstairs bath are in a second area.
Coker Creek is in the Cherokee National Forest with of many opportunities for outdoor activities -- hiking, biking, whitewater rafting, fly fishing -- and yet is within driving distance of the Great Smoky mountains and Pigeon Forge shopping and entertainment as well as scenic rides by car and rail.
Near Championship Golf Courses: Tellico Villlage has three championship golf courses. For a limited time, the village is inviting non-residents to play its private championship courses. The Links at Kahite is a true 'links' course that meanders through a beautiful natuaral setting and offers spectical panoramic view of the Great Smoky Mountains. The Tanasi course has six sets of tees that play from 6,731 to 5,044 yards. The course borders Tellico lake and offers a diversity of appeal from the challenging water holes to the strategic par fives. The Tanasi Clubhouse includes an excellent restaurant that offers casual dining in a beautiful setting. The Toqua course features a classic design that is considered one of the best golf tracks in Tennessee. The course was built into an exquisite natural setting with several holes playing alongside Tellico Lake. Toqua is as challenging as it is beautiful and holes seven through nine may be the most demanding three consecutive holes in the state.
Ocoee River - Olympic White Water Course: In 1996 the Ocoee river was the site of the World's first Olympic whitewater event on a natural river. The river is in a beautiful rocky gorge with Class III & IV rapids. Kayakers are seen on the river year round and rafting outfitters offer trips June-September. The White water center has a one-mile hiking trail which crosses a 330 foot suspension bridge and circles the center. The trail is entirely accessible for those who are physically challenged. There are an additional 20 miles of trails for hikers and mountain bikers, including the Bear Paw Trail and the Chestnut Mountain Trail, both of which are loops. A recent addition, the Thunder Rock Express, has received a lot of positive comments from bikers.The Old Copper Road Historic Trail allows hikers and bikers an easier paced adventure along the restored path that was used to transport copper by wagon from Ducktown to Cleveland before the arrival of the railroad from Blue Ridge.
Fly Fishing - Tellico River and Citico Creek: The Tellico River and surrounding area make up one of Tennessee's classic trout-fishing destinations. The Tellico is best known for heavy stockings and big-fish potential on the main river and on Citico Creek. The Tellico is a big river, offering plenty of room for plenty of fishermen, and the heavily stocked section is more than 13 miles long. Tthe forks of Citico Creek and the Bald River, a major tributary of the Tellico, form the centerpieces of the Citico and Bald River wilderness areas. These streams offer wild trout in unspoiled wilderness settings and, more often than not, no company from other anglers. Guides and outfitters are available and the Cherohala Welcome center provides maps and a wealth of information.
I am a retired electrical engineer. I grew up in East Tennessee and love the scenery and mountains of the area.
Susan Paulus purchased this cabin in 2004
After retirement, I decided renovating a mountain cabin would be a great project! For me John Muir's quote 'The mountains are calling and I must go' is a perfect fit.
The creek is the focal point of this property and the reason I love it.
we found the Nugget to be quaint,cozy,comfortable and completely clean. kitchen cabins were completely stocked with meticulously arranged cutlery, stylish dinnerware and every conceivable culinary apparatus. owner Susan was instrumental in assisting my booking, making sure everything was to our satisfaction and even surprised us with a delicious banana bread left for our arrival. though our stay was short as a side line on our return trip back north we enjoyed the soothing sounds of the stream from the covered porch out back [it rained real hard during our stay but did not dampen our outdoor enjoyment] the luxurios bed and sunken hot tub revived our bodies and minds for the continuation of our long drive home. what a wonderful stay- sure to be back. drive to Buck Bald and hike to Conasauga Falls are natural wonders not to be missed
We went there to have a relax and family new year's Eve and that's what we had. It's such a beautiful Nugget. I took there my family as a surprise and when we where there they asked me to show them the pictures of the nugget and they say wow it's more amazing in person that at the pictures. One of the things that surprised us was the Christmas decorations we loved it.
Highly recommend for a peaceful get away . The cabin was clean and so nice. They even had a Christmas tree up which delighted my kids.
We stayed in the cabin for 4 days including Thanksgiving. Absolutely wonderful place. It does have anything and everything necessary to cook a full holiday meal. It does have excellent dinnerware, silverware and glassware. It is also very warm, we felt right at home, well planned and well maintained (everything works perfect at first try). The cabin is also sparkling clean, no old oily or greasy spots on table or chairs, or anywhere also. The air hockey and hot tub definitely a great features. My husband enjoyed gas grill, which cooks great. Nice sweet bread was waiting for us in refrigerator - a welcome gift from the owner. A lot of DVD's to watch, books to read, even fishing rods, if you need them. The nature around is beautiful and peaceful, all you can hear is a stream running on a back. Very nice place. Thank you, Sue!
P.S. The only odd thing is that we could not find a dust pen. :)
We stayed at The Nugget for two nights this fall, and loved it. The location is very serene and peaceful, and the house is very well equipped. We cooked up some very nice meals in the super kitchen, which has all the implements and cookware you might need. Best of all was the lovely hot tub in its own gazebo, overlooking the stream.
Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful cabin. I love all of the ship lap on the walls upstairs. We enjoyed the fireplace after being out exploring all day. We would enjoy staying again in the future. R Phillips
My husband and I had the best time at the Nugget! We rent a mountain cabin every year for our anniversary and the Nugget was definitely one of our favorites to visit. The leaves were changing when we were there and it was the prettiest scenery! We enjoyed keeping the doors open and listening to the leaves fall and the creek water flowing in the background - nothing better for the soul. The grill on the patio was also so convenient. One night we grilled out and relaxed in the hot tub. It was just the escape we needed. The only suggestion we have would be putting a little more light out by the hot tub for when it gets dark outside. Besides that, everything was perfect!!
Susan, the owner, was also awesome! We had to change the dates of our trip and she was super sweet about it. Highly recommend The Nugget!
