About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Large deck has a panoramic view of the Nottley River and Mountain tops. The cabin is located on a paved dead end road that offers privacy, peace and quite. The property looks down on the Nottley River which is approximately 200 feet below at the edge of the property. In a large field across the river, deer, turkeys and geese can be seen from the deck in early morning and at sunset.

Family room has a stone fire place with gas logs. Large dining table and 2 bar stools for extra seating. The master bedroom has a queen bed and a large TV. The second bedroom has two twin beds and a roll-away-bed.

The deck is on the front of the cabin facing the Nottley river with the view of a corn field and mountain peak in the back. It includes covered and uncovered areas. Uncovered area has a picnic table and a gas grill. Covered area has rocking chairs for your enjoyment of the views.

A six person hot tub sits on a covered Gazebo in front of the deck with a knock out view of the Nottley River with great sounds of the rapids on the river. In addition we have just excavated an area next to the hot tub and installed a 36 inch fit pit for roasting hot dogs and marshmallows. There is nothing more captivating than sitting in an adirondack chair after you've taken a dip in the hot tub and enjoy eating hot dogs, marshmallows and drinking your favorite beverage around the fire pit which overlooks the Nottley river and the mountain peaks. It is an experience you don't want to miss.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time at the Nottley River Retreat. This is a beautiful, warm and charming cabin with beautiful views. It feels very private and secluded and you have amazing views of fields and the river. We especially loved the hot tub and the wonderful porch where we ate most of our meals. The accomodations are very comfortable with a great bed in the master bedroom and a very comfortable couch with a huge tv. The kitchen has all the needs for cooking while on vacation. There is great wi-fi service as well. The location is great. There were lots of areas to explore and fun local culture. There are lots of hiking options nearby and even a little further out. There were great dining options not too far away (we would HIGHLY recommend the Copper Door in Hayesville, NC...amazing fine dining!) This was exactly the kind of getaway accomodations we were looking for and would definitely stay again in the future. We unequivocally would recommend the Notley Retreat!

This was the MOST amazing cabin!!! The pictures and description on the website were exactly what we found upon arrival! We came in late Thursday and woke up to the most spectacular view. We could not believe how relaxed we became just sitting on the porch. The cabin was clean and nicely decorated. The bed in the master bedroom is VERY comfortable!! We enjoyed the fire pit and the hot tub with an amazing view of the stars and the sounds of the river.

The town is great with some cute shops and flea markets to explore. You absolutely must eat at Rib Country while you are in town!!!

From the moment we booked until the afternoon we (sadly) left the cabin we had a wonderful experience. We can't wait to go back!!!!

Great views, very clean, and easy to confirm reservation. I frequently contract rentals. From experience I carry two plastic tote boxes filled with amenities we usually need (plastic bags, garbage bags, foil, tissues etc etc.) I did not need to dip into the travel totes at all! We had plenty to do in the area when we were not relaxing on the deck watching wild turkey, geese and a group of 5 deer that crossed the river daily right in front of us. I would not hesitate to visit again (next time, though, in warmer weather!)

Worst vacation experience of my life! I'm still in shock and beyond upset, the place had not been properly cleaned in at least a year and the amount of bugs on the floors, walls furniture, blankets and towels made me immediately sick and obviously I did not stay. This place is not safe and the reaction I received when I called the owner to say I was leaving and why was, "Oh, sorry about that"

Well, I'm sorry too. You stole my money and my vacation time.

It is indeed a cabin with awesome views

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay. The cabin is very well equipped and comfortable with air conditioning and heating. The hot tub is a real bonus and the views are spectacular. We stayed in November and had both hot and cold weather, neither is a problem in this cabin. Regardless of the weather, we always enjoyed sitting on the covered deck watching the scenery. Binoculars are a must as there is so much to see. There is everything you will need in the cabin. Having a garage to park you car is great, This is a small friendly neighbourhood and everyone we passed waved. We were really sorry to leave and would love to come back.

Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

The view off the porch was amazing. The cabin was lovely and in a great location to go and explore the area but also peacefully enough to just enjoy the quietness on the porch. Definitely will return one day.
