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 Tellico Plains
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.

Sports & Adventure Activities
We had such a great and wonderful time there.
It needs service for phones just in case someone gets hurt. No way to call anyone. This is coming from a single traveler. A beautiful home otherwise.
Quiet and relaxing
The layout is very efficient and the location is perfect for a quiet getaway. The deck with the creek right underneath it was the best part.
Everything was as described. The house smelled clean when we arrived. The creek was burbling which we enjoyed from the crystal clear hot tub. There are other cabins on the street, but the Nugget is well situated for privacy on the back deck and hot tub. Everything was in great shape and well supplied. We rent often, so we were surprised to see that the cabin was stocked with extra toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags and spices in the cupboard; not many rentals do that, but it really increased the convenience for us. The owner was very responsive to any questions. The bed was so comfortable and the whole ambiance so soothing that I found myself sleeping late each day. We were here for work, so not having cell service was a challenge, but with the WiFi we were able to FaceTime with our employees so all was well. The only suggested improvements would be an outdoor area to build a fire and a VOIP phone line so you could both send and receive long distance calls. Excellent property!
the cabin was just as pictured , very quiet getaway.
susan left a tasteful loaf of bread in fridge, also a anniversary card for us. The cabin was comfortable and had everything we needed for a two day stay.
Perfect getaway with your family!
We had an amazing tome at this cabin. The cabin was neat and clean. The creek in the backyard was so calming to listen too. Enjoy a cup of coffee on the back porch and listen to the birds cherp in the morning. We used the hot tub everyday, it was amazing! Thank you for sharing your home with us, we would love to go back in the future!
