About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Make your reservation now to experience log home living, set high atop a mountain and watch as the sun sets over Tennessee! If you like spectacular long range views of sky and mountains, this log cabin high up in the Snowbird Mountains is for you! Nighttime stargazing, especially in the HOT TUB is an amazing experience at our log cabin with unobstructed views in all directions! Only Small Dogs allowed under 35 lbs per owners.

Scout's Lookout, a real log cabin with beautiful heart of pine floors throughout, is a non-smoking cabin with one thing in mind-- relaxation and comfort. This log cabin has ALL the amenities you need for a relaxing vacation ... eat your meals in the dining area with long range views on 3 sides or out on the porch. There are two bedrooms on the main level -- the master with a queen bed, private bath and cable tv; and the guest bedroom has a full size bed.

Upstairs the large loft has twins and a cozy reading area with loveseat. Board games, puzzles and movies will help to entertain the young -- or young at heart! Just open the windows, turn on the ceiling fans and the cool mountain air will lull you right to sleep! The living room has a wood burning fireplace for those cool mountain nights, complete with TV, VCR and DVD.

Swing or rock on the porch and admire the amazing views as birds and clouds float by... OR use it as your home base while you ride the Nantahala River Gorge, boat or swim on Lake Nantahala, antique in Franklin and N. Georgia or explore the beautiful mountains and waterfalls of Western North Carolina, especially the Great Smokey Mountains National Park! The grocery store is a 10 minute drive down the mountain into the town of Andrews.

Don't forget -- the vineyards of N. Georgia make a great day trip! Nearby places of interest include Nantahala Outdoor Center (tubing, rafting, horseback, picnic), Bryson City (golf, Great Smoky Mountain Railroad, Appalachian Trail), Cherokee (casinos), Fontana Lake, Cherohola Skyway (42 mile scenic drive). Scout's Lookout is a great location as you explore all that Western North Carolina has to offer.

There just aren't many views that will match the ones from here... it's closer to heaven than you think! Spend a week... or spend a month.... couples, families and the whole family. (home has 2 bedrooms on the main level) anyone looking to recharge ..... it just doesn't get any better than high up at Scout's Lookout! Hot Tub, TV-Rocue,Telephone, Cell Phone if Att&T or Verizon serivce generally works & internet access is also available!

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

Someone wrote a review about Bed bugs but we found this cabin clean as a pin and no bugs. Relaxing on the porch swing looking over Snowbird Mountain was so peaceful and mellow. Nice hot tub. Quiet and serene and rafting, casino and hiking all in one great area of western North Carolina. This place is nice for what our group spent, will book this place again

We came to enjoy a friends 28th birthday, only to wake up and find they had been sleeping in a bed full of tiny bugs. We were unsure if they were bed bugs or something else, and immediately cleaned all of the sheets. The second night we did not see anything so we felt a little better. We didn't really have much of an option to go anywhere else, we were four hours from home and had already spent a lot to stay for 2 nights. Three days after returning two of the girls were covered from head to toe in scabies and spent hundreds of dollars each on treatment creams and pills and doctor bills. We even had to pay a cleaning fee that most rentals don't require. I doubt this place has ever been cleaned, and definitely was not cleaned before we came. I have tried calling and emailing Dottie several times with no answer. The has been no rectification or even an apology or notification they will take care of the issue. I highly suggest looking elsewhere. I bet most of these 5 star comments are from Dottie's friends anyway. I live in the South, SOUTH CAROLINA to be exact, there is no excuse for bugs in your home. Not lady bugs, not bed bugs, NOT ANY TYPE OF BUG. If I could give 0 stars I would.

Scouts Lookout

  • 5 of 5

We came up for the Thanksgiving holidays. The house was clean and well maintained. The kitchen is well stocked and everything that you need is there. We loved the hot tub and spent a lot of time out on the deck "chilling out"!. Our only regret is that we had to leave. We would definitely stay here again. Oh, we did see Lady Bugs, but they weren't as bad as the previous post indicated. If you are in the South, you are gonna see Lady Bugs during this time of the year. We didn't see it as a problem. I wouldn't let that discourage you from staying here.

Excellent Location with Great View

  • 4 of 5

Me and my girlfriend come to the North Georgia or Western,NC areas twice a year to hike, ride motorcycles,sight see, and just relax in the beautiful environment. We typically stay at a different place every time we come. We had a nice stay and Scouts Lookout. The location is nice in that it is central to both Western / Central N.C. and North Georgia. Andrews is a bit of a sleepier town than Murphy. Which we liked.

Per the previous poster we too had some ladybugs but they were not all that bad and were just on one side of the cabin. Not in the bedrooms or restrooms. We did some reading up on them and they are just confused and trying to hibernate. We swept them or vacuumed them each day and put the ones we could back outside to get on with there life. I have stayed in places with worse ladybugs. Both up this way and back home in Mississippi. No biggie.

We did make a few suggestions to the management company / owner ( as we do with most places we stay. We only hope to help the mgt. company and owner be a little better ) as I would want the same so that people stayed happy.

We would be more than happy to stay at Scouts Lookout again as we were treated nicely by Freedom Realty throughout the rental process.

We stayed at this beautiful getaway cabin and were so happy that we had chosen it. The views are stupendous, beautiful covered porch to sit on, hot tub also on the porch. The cabin had every amenity that could be needed, we didn't have to purchase anything. The cabin was immaculate and Dottie of Freedom Realty Inc. was so nice. She called us when we arrived to make sure everything was to our liking and asked if there anything else we needed. If so, she would get it immediately for us. There was also a beautiful welcome basket waiting for us! This has never happened at any other cabin we stayed at. Our stay was so relaxing and this cabin and we will definitely be back for another visit. Thankfully, the cabin is pet friendly and the deck is gated so we knew our pet was safe.

We thank Dottie for her help and for making this a most enjoyable vacation for us!
