About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms with plenty of sleeping room. Sleeps 4

Our cabin is newly remodeled 2/2 with plenty of room and offers a beautiful stream running behind it. There is a hot tub on the upper deck with the stream down below and a lower deck for listening to the stream or picnics. The cabin is very secluded in the Nanatahala Forest with the Bartram Trail for hiking within 5 minutes walking distance. The Trail will take you to a breathtaking gorge and the Nanatahala Dam. Nanatahala Lake is 5 minutes by car from our cabin where you can rent rafts or there is a boat ramp available not far to put your own boat in. This is the Cabin for you, I promise that you won't want to leave!

Area Description:

Fishing is very good for trout,sun fish and bass on the lake or in the nearby rivers which run in the surrounding area.

The Nanatahala River is great for white water rafting which is available down the mountain about twenty minutes east.

Cherokee which is 45 minutes away has a Casino and Museums and an outdoor theater.

Best Vacation Ever!

"Best vacation ever!" That's how my kids described it. Debbie and Dave are awesome and make sure their guests have all they need. Beautiful view, nice hot tub, everything you need inside, and a fire pit to roast marshmallows, this place has it all. I highly recommend that anyone who is looking for somewhere to get away contact Debbie right away. It is awesome and we will be back!

Great cabin and super relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a great cabin, and a very relaxing place to stay. It has a creek that runs beside the cabin that has small water falls, so you can hear the water. Everything you need is there as far as cooking in or outside. It is very quite not like most places that you rent that show a picture of a cabin then when you arrive there are cabins all around you. The owner Debbie was very nice to talk to on the phone and was very concern that we had a great stay in her place. We can not wait to return again. A wonderful time away that we really needed.

Amazing Secluded Experience.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had an amazing experience at this cabin! It was beautiful inside and outside. The location was remote and exactly what we needed to get away for a few days. Everything was provided that was necessary and more. The kitchen was very well stocked and organized. The bed was very comfortable and relaxing. Having the porch all across and below the cabin was amazing. You were able to go outside, relax, and enjoy the outdoors without having to hear city sounds. There was no one to bother us. The scenery around the cabin was very beautiful and we were lucky enough to have the waterfall running outside the cabin. You could hear the relaxing sounds of the water while laying in bed. The hot tub was well maintained and very relaxing as well. It was easily accessible through the back door in the master bedroom. I recommend this cabin into anyone that wants to get away and have a quiet, personal time! We will be coming back to this cabin in the future because we love it that much. Thank you to the owners for being very pleasant and very informative before, during, and after our visit.

We loved this little place!

  • 5 of 5

First, the cabin is adorable. Second, it has a hot tub, porches and hammock, rocking chairs, a stream than runs along side the property (amazing sounds), a fire pit and loads of wood ready to burn(right beside creek). Third, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen has everything, gas fire place in living room, cable and WiFi. Everything you could possibly need for a relaxing weekend! 20min from cabin to Tellico Gap and NOC if you want to play on the Appalachian Trail! Streams and rivers all was a beautiful, relaxing long weekend! Debbie was super helpful! We loved our stay!! Thanks so much!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed here in July of 2017 while our husbands hiked the AT. The place was wonderful and had everything we needed. We got in late the first night due to running supplies to the men. Didn't find the driveway in the dark and found myself turning around at a dead end. Yikes. It was a great place to come back to after long days of hiking to waterfalls and mountain tops. Unfortunately the hot tub was waiting on a part to fix it, so we couldn't enjoy it. But who had one regret is we didn't slow down and enjoy the back decks while listening to the stream. Maybe next time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your recent stay to our cabin. Our drive is hard to find in the dark so we have placed a wagon wheel just before our drive on the left with the address on it . Hopefully this will help late arrivals as there is no street lights. A brand new hot tub is in place for your enjoyment! Come back soon!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is remote, private, and very comfortable. The frigid temperature outside didn't affect how cozy we were inside, beside the fire. This was our second visit to this location in the dead of winter. It is a wonderful place to retreat.
