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 had a great stay at the Gatakiyi cabin in Fleetwood Falls. The view was fantastic! I suppose the only drawback was the lack of AC. It was an extremely hot weekend - even in the mountains & we had a couple of hot nights.

Pros: Great views. Great screened-in deck with fireplace. Functioning kitchen. Cons: Basement bedroom has strong mildew odor (worked with us because with 4 of us staying there, we didn't need to use it). Insects in cabin - needs better pest control approach.

Overall we had a great stay at Gakatiyi over Memorial Day weekend. The screened in porch is perfect and that is where we spent most of our time. There was a bit of an ant problem in the kitchen but other than that the house was clean though a little dated. We will stay again!

Reviewer Comments:

House was as seen in the pictures on the website. HUGE screened in porch, but a little cool at the time to really use. Only problem was barking dogs in the valley ... you could only barely hear in the house, but on the deck it was distracting for reading. Great view.
