Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Perched on the side of a mountain and tucked among native hardwoods, rhododendrons and mountain laurel is “Gakatiyi,” a Cherokee word meaning “a place of setting free.” If freedom from the daily grind is what you seek then you couldn’t have planned a better escape. Lots of activities and attractions are waiting and all within a few minutes’ walk or drive. The onsite community lake is perfect for a morning of fishing, the lake is stocked and offers hours of catch and release entertainment. Or delight in a leisurely paddle, a refreshing afternoon dip or an evening BBQ at the lakeside gazebo. You’ll also want to save time for a nature hike through the wooded ravine to the community waterfalls or take pleasure in a scenic float down the New River only minutes away. River access is available to vacationers with plenty of parking and canoe, kayak and tube rentals are available in nearby Todd if you don’t want to bring your own. Meandering approximately 10 miles from Fleetwood to Todd alongside the New River is scenic Railroad Grade Road, a local favorite for bicycle touring. In Todd you can also find the well-known Todd General Store and Cook Memorial Park where you can enjoy folk storytelling, bluegrass on Friday nights and numerous music and art festivals throughout the year. Check out calendar of events section for a full list of area happenings. Year round adventure awaits and “Gakatiyi” is the perfect place to call home as you explore everything the High Country offers.

Inside your “home away from home” you’ll find three levels of living and plenty of space for all your family and friends. When you open the doors you’ll be greeted by the window filled living room where you can enjoy majestic views and the fire’s warm glow. The combination kitchen / dining area is a cook’s dream and off this area you’ll find the signature screened porch with comfy outdoor furnishings, picnic table and a massive wood burning outdoor fireplace. On this level you’ll also find a spacious bedroom with queen size bed and separate full bath.

On the upper level you’ll enjoy a loft area with sleeper sofa, full bath and bedroom with double size bed.

The lower level is roomy and open with queen size bed, media room and laundry area.

With natural beauty, unique attractions and year round activities all within a short drive from this comfortable getaway you’ll already be planning your next vacation. 20 miles to Boone, 10 miles to West Jefferson and 10 miles to Todd.

Reviewer Comments:

We really love staying in the cabin. This was our 2nd time. Look forward to doing it again. Only problem was septic tank leakage, had to smell sewage all weekend, couldn't use the screened porch very much because of the smell. Looking forward to returning if septic problem is repaired. Problem was reported while we were there but no one came to check it out that I am aware of,

We had a wonderful stay at Gakatiyi. The view was spectacular and the outdoor fireplace on the screened-in porch was awesome! The house was very clean and check-in/check-out was very easy! Would definitely stay here again.

I've now done two extended stays at Gakatiyi, and everything has been perfect. The house itself is wonderful, the view is hard to beat, and the property management staff is very accommodating.
