Cullowhee Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Sundrops is a private gated nano resort located in the mountains of Western North Carolina on the Caney Fork Trout Stream. Our twin cottages are designed with a great room combining the kitchen, dining and living rooms to create an open space. The Suncup cottage offers one roomy King Master Suite and a second bedroom with twin trundle bed. Laundry facilities are also included. Also enjoy outdoor living on the porch, which features a fireplace for entertaining or relaxing.

The resort where the cottage is located offers a clubhouse, pool, fitness center, pedestrian friendly walking trails, and pocket parks for reading or resting. Also enjoy the start of our orchard or fresh vegetable garden. Or try your luck trout fishing on the banks of Caney Fork which runs along over 2,200 feet of the community.

Sundrops Clubhouse and Pool: The Clubhouse has an indoor lounge, fitness center, covered pavilion with large outdoor fireplace, rocking chairs, 'dive-in movies' on our outdoor movie screen and an outdoor kitchen complete with grills and smokers for cooking up your favorite meals. The resort style perimeter edge pool and hot tub is surrounded by a large deck with tables and pool chaise.

As a guest with Sundog you will also have access to our lakefront pavilion called the Laughing Trout Camp just 15 minutes from Sundrops. A private lakefront timber-frame pavilion located on a 476 acre fish-rich, skiing and boating lake that boasts a full gourmet kitchen along with a stone fireplace, fully furnished seating and dining areas, and two heated/AC bathrooms. Along the banks of Bear Creek Lake there are scenic picnic areas, fire pits, and outdoor gas grill for barbequing. Bring your own boat! There is convenient public boat ramp adjacent to the property. Club members and cottage renters are able to access the Laughing Trout Camp Pavilion daily 9a.m. to 9p.m.

Check in/Check out times: Check in between 3 and 6 pm; check out by 11 am. We can accommodate after hours check in/out times if given advance notice.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We would definitely recommend Sundog Vacation Rentals. We give you 5 stars! We loved the beautiful cabin and gorgeous mountain view! The children tubed the creek and went fishing. I usually do not swim, but my husband could hardly get me out of the relaxing edgeless pool and hot tub!!! We grilled out every night and had long talks beside the outdoor fireplace at the cabin. There was so much to do. You are secluded and surrounded by mountains; however, you are still close to DQ!! Perfect!

Anniversary Celebration

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this mountain home. It is very clean and well-maintained. We liked the house mascot downstairs. The outdoor fireplace and comfortable chairs were the perfect retreat after sightseeing during the day. We took a train ride one day on the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad out of Bryson City. When we travel we like to find local restaurants; we enjoyed The Jarrett House in Dillsboro.

We like to take the backroads and explore; so it was fun to find a new road each day. If you have heard of Tail of the Dragon; stay at this home and you can drive the road.

Great Everything!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Sirs at Sundog,

We had a very wonderful time staying at Nightshade. The house felt just like home with every single thing we could have hoped for. The view and appeal, the top of the line furniture, tv, appliances, the walking trails along the creek, the club house, pool and overall experience was a trip of a lifetime. The weather was great and we could not have asked for more. We will certainly go back. Honestly, we did not want to leave. I would recommend this to any couple or family.

Perfect weekend getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Pleasantly surprised by "the little things" that were provided in the cottage like an umbrella and a cooler. They thought of everything. The bathroom shower in the master bedroom was a dream. The cottage was clean, beds comfy, view unsurpassed. They even did all the work behind the scenes for us to rent a pontoon boat on the lake. All we had to do was show up and start enjoying the weekend. We had a fire in the outside fireplace one night and sat outside wrapped in blankets enjoying the fire. The pool and clubhouse were another bonus. I can't say enough about what a wonderful cottage it was. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and will definitely be back. The only complaint we had was that there was no cell service at all. But really, on a vacation in the mountains to relax... that's not even a "real" complaint!! We had our 2 teenage sons with us, and they loved the pool, they were not bored once. I also think that because it was such a quiet area, it would be a beautiful place for a honeymoon or romantic weekend away. I give it my highest marks, and definitely recommend it!! The rental company was a dream to deal with. They were friendly and accomodating. We could not have chosen a better cabin in the mountains!!

Exclusive Accomodations at a Moderate Price

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter, friend, and I stayed at Nightshade operated by Sundog rentals for four nights July 3rd through July 6th. The accomodations exceeded our expectations. The home and furnishing were delightful and well maintained, and the beds were very comfortable. In addition, the staff at Sundog were helpful in introducing us to the area and suggesting fun activities. The home is divided into two properties: Nightshade and Evening Primrose. It appeared to us that these residences were models for Sundog construction company. It is evident that most of the open space around the home are lots for sale. Initially, when checking in, we were expecting to receive a sales pitch to purchase a timeshare or vacation property since the accomodations seemed to be worth so much more than the cost. To our relief, there was no sales pitch, not a word. The Tuckeseegee River is across the street a hundred yards. My daughter and her friend caught 11 fish using fresh corn kernels as bait. The clubhouse and very large pool are kitty corner to the residence. Since the pool was hardly used by anyone else, it seemed as if it was for our exclusive use. To top off our week, for the July 4th holiday there were fireworks for Jackson county which we enjoyed laying on the grass right outside the backdoor.

Happy Bear

  • 5 of 5

The first walking was overwhelming it was so very nice and homey. Our stay was just so relaxing and fun. We had our whole family with us. The porch was great for entertaining. We had a big luncheon and there was room for everyone. We want to come back and just relax. We got locked out of our house and they were great in getting us back in. We can not say enough about Caleb and Mark. Great to work with and were there for us anytime we needed anything. Thanks for making our family wedding weekend a huge success and fun and very memorable. We got such raving reports from all that stayed that it was great. Thanks again.
