Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeper sofa; sleeps 6

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.

About Susan Paulus

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

Why Susan Paulus chose Tennessee

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.

What makes this cabin unique

The creek is the focal point of this property and the reason I love it.

Guestbook comments from the manager

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

Amazing

This is just a little bit of heaven on earth. You could tell Susan thought of every little thing a person would need to have a wonderful vacation. We loved it and are already planning for next year. If I could give ten stars I would. Judy and Lee Collins

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this cabin. Such a cute quaint place. Homeowners made us feel welcomed by having sweet notes and fresh banana bread in the fridge. We really enjoyed this cabin. It made for a perfect pre-baby moon for me and my wife.

Beautiful surroundings

  • 4 of 5

We loved the beautiful surroundings; the sound of the creek was special. The house is comfortable and well equipped. However, my 70 year mother had trouble going up and down the stairs because they were very steep. Overall it was great!

Relax and unplug!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a week at the Nugget and thoroughly enjoyed being away from it all. The house is exactly as advertised and had everything we needed for the week. In particular, the kitchen was very well equipped. The deck was amazing, with a view to the stream and it's relaxing sound. We loved the hummingbirds! There is no cell service, but the wi-fi was great. You will be a minimum of 40 minutes from any kind of activity, except the Skyway drive - highly recommend! If peace and quiet is what you're hoping for .... you're sure to be pleased!
