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:

I have rented this place several times over the years and have always enjoyed it, particularly for the huge porch and outdoor fireplace. On this trip I found the house to be in need of a little more attention to cleaning - carpet and upholstery - and I am sure the owner will attend to those needs soon.

the home is a little older,it has older appliances but it makes up for it with the wood burning fire place inside as well as on the screen in porch, and the view of the mountains is one of a kind, my wife and me will be back soon

Reviewer Comments:

Wonderful house! The covered porch and fireplace made the house - we spent all our time out there! It was in a great location and very comfortable. The only small issue was the inconvenience of having a separate large bedroom downstairs without a bathroom. Going up two flights to the other bathroom was inconvenient.

Reviewer Comments:

The rain and cold did not prevent us from having enjoyable stay for a week in September at Gakatiyi. The views and the peace and quiet of the neighborhood were what we needed. The chalet had all the amenities we needed for a comfortable week's stay. The property owners and the management company were extremely accommodating when we needed to cancel a stay earlier in the year due to a family tragedy. Will definitely be a returning guest.

Reviewer Comments:

I was pleasantly surprised by this home. The pictures did not do it justice. We rented it primarily for the porch, view, and location and ended up loving the house itself and the porch and view were beyond our expectations. Everything was clean and comfortable. We had 2 teens and 2 young boys in tow and everything wasn't so new that we couldn't relax. It was nice but felt like a home. Highly reccommend! Make sure the brakes on your car work well, it's a long way up and down, and don't expect a large amount of area for kids to play in as it's a small property, but a fork of the New River rests at the bottom of the development and it was perfect for fishing. We plan to return as soon as possible!
