About Michael Craig

Michael and Brigitte Craig have been married over two decades and love both travel and working from home. Dr. Craig is a retired chiropractor who currently trains coaches and consultants, and helps Brigitte run a small home-based business and keep up their few remaining properties.

Michael Craig purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Michael Craig chose Tellico Plains

Michael and Brigitte owned one beach home in the Bahamas when 9-11 happened, and they worried that 'No one would ever fly to the islands again.' They turned out to be wrong, but in the meantime had bought a few cabins in the Coker Creek area 'just in case.' Cupid's Cove is the only one they kept because it was the nicest of them all, and holds a lot of special moments and memories for hundreds of couples and families.

What makes this cabin unique

The upstairs loft bedroom with balcony, and the outdoor deck and spa offer a special introduction to the natural beauty of the Cherokee National Forest. Although not entirely isolated, this cabin is hidden from neighbors, very quiet and private. The unique layout also houses a big-screen TV with satellite reception, satellite Internet WiFi, a fully-furnished and tiled kitchen (except for dishwasher) and a nice DVD library. Your cell phone will NOT work, however, unless you can use it through WiFi or Skype (and watch that you don't have a lot of silently-running apps that can run up a big tab - turn your phone off when not using). .

Guestbook comments from the manager

We spent wonderful time in Cupid's Cove. Looking forward to come back next winter. Thanks!

Quaint rustic romantic hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my husband and I have gone here for our anniversary. The first time we took a three day weekend and rafted the Ocoee then hid away for two days doing nothing. This time we relaxed day one, did the Lost Sea day 2, and the Cherohala Skyway day 3. You can hideaway or get out and do stuff. The best part is Michael gives you a guide to all the stuff around you to do. Don't expect to have a cell phone signal driving around but there's good wifi in and around the cabin. We are talking about making this our yearly thing.

Cute cozy cabin in the woods. Perfect for couples.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in this cabin during the first of March. My husband and I rented it for a weekend getaway to explore Tellico Plains. We loved that you had to cross a little stream to get to the cabin(don’t worry, it’s tiny and shallow and we had no issues crossing). The cabin itself feels secluded even though there are neighbors nearby. It’s cozy and just what we needed for the two of us. We loved the wood burning stove and the hot tub and the deck off the bedroom is perfect for morning coffee. It was clean overall, had plenty of extra heaters if needed and we would rent again. If you are headed to Tellico Plains, Tellicafe is a must! Everything there is delicious! Make the drive to Buck Bald bc the 360 degree mountaintop view is stunning. Also, DO THE LOST SEA CAVE TOUR!

great place

  • 4 of 5

When we got there the key wasn't in the outside box so we had to go back to someone's house and use there phone to call and have the key brought to us, although it probably only took half hr cause they were prompt in bringing it out.thus the reason for four stars. But it was a wonderful place to stay and we had a great time.
