The River at Your Footsteps! This is a very private and secluded property with over 50+ acres to yourself and over 3,000 feet of your own private frontage of the Reddies River. Nested within a gated community of unspoiled nature surroundings, our cabin has many breath-taking Mountain Views, Waterfalls, Roaring Rivers, Hiking Trails, and Wildlife.

Enjoy this Beautiful Riverfront Cabin located only minutes away from the Blue Ridge Parkway and many other amazing recreations. Housed only a few feet away from the river, vacationers can enjoy gorgeous waterfall scenery and listen to the energetic rhythm of running water directly from the cabin.

The river is one of the best-known Rainbow Trout fishing spots in Millers Creek. This romantic and hidden-away Cabin is fully furnished (linens and towels are provided). It includes three bedrooms, one bath, a living room, a kitchen, two outdoor scenic decks, and everything you need from home.

Come stay at The Blue River Cabin for your next best vacation get-away ever!

About The Nguyen Family

We are a family of four. This spot is one of our favorite vacation places because when we are here, we are united and nothing interferes with that good old-fashioned family togetherness.

The Nguyen Family purchased this cabin in 2002

Why The Nguyen Family chose Millers Creek

When we first saw this cabin and its surroundings we were stunned by the beauty and magnificence there. It looked like something you would only see in a painting. It is truly a hidden paradise that we have found.

What makes this cabin unique

The energetic river is very soothing to gaze at and to listen to. The motion of the river seems to relax the mind, body, and soul. Truly a unique part of staying at our cabin.

Guestbook comments from the owner


We had a most fabulous week! the kids enjoyed throwing rocks into the creek - we even caught a few fish using the hook and corn. It was so wonderful being able to walk down and see the waterfalls any time of day. So beautiful and peaceful - very relaxing.

We experienced so much wildlife: Butterflies, a huge caterpiller, bats, black snake, fish, crawfish, salamanders,frogs, deer, etc . . . picking blueberries down the road was a real highlight and eating the blueberry cobbler was even better! It was a wonderful vacation. Your cabin was just exactly what we wanted. Thank You!

Very Disappointed, listing inaccurate

  • 1 of 5

This was 2nd home we pre-booked on a needed 1 week break from my business here in NC and before my wife's spinal surgery began. I have rented many homes throughout NC mountain areas and even beach homes over the years, this one sadly, worst for what we expected and paid for.

After leaving 1st property which was more remote and amazing (not VRBO home), we arrived at this property to realize something not quite right. There were no working phones at all. There was no TV satellite disk for direct TV to work, so all we had was netflix internet thing. No radios worked or were broken and old. Bathroom needs proper upgrade as only 1 small shower stall, and lots cobwebs in ceiling and lots of mice droppings in kitchen and living room and utensils drawer which we had to clean before we could move in (mouse even ran across counter). Using my son's girlfriend's I-Phone we were able to use internet to call out only. But after 1st day, around 930pm that night, the sewer pump system they have broke down. Seems it's happened before by notes left. I called number of their maintenance guy, and he arrived after 1030pm that night, banged on pipes under home, and said he had to find a professional plumber the next day. Until then, he told us to use the woods as a bathroom; None of the drains could be used. My wife and son's girlfriend are not going to use woods as a bathroom! We then packed everything up, angry and left early to drive all the way back home ruining my vacation and now I am trying to get owner/VRBO to refund our monies.

Understand, this is located off the Old NC 16 "moonshiners route" and what you don't see in the pictures of waterfalls, is you face that route, and though traffic is very little, you will see locals driving that each day. Property may be 50 acres, but most inaccessible/unusable and very steep with rock except where cabin sits next to Reggies River. Only immediate area behind cabin can even be fished. Maintenance guy lives about 20 miles away, but evident that work/repairs done within home in past are not done by a experienced knowledgeable professional at all, and many elements are not up to Code electrically or mechanically. I am a licensed NC professional contractor myself and I was upset finding this out. Owner lives in FL, and works at Lockheed Martin, and needs to invest $$$ to properly and safely upgrade and maintain this or else will not have respectable renters nor willing to pay rates they charge.

Many issues during stay! Quiet location although stream was beautiful no fish!

  • 2 of 5

When we arrived the internet was not working took a day for that to be fixed more over no cable tv just a leebox that only runs off internet which did not work most of the time! Don’t go when it’s cold because the heat will not go above 69 degrees unless you want to build a fire which there was no wood! The grill didn’t work! Also there is a mice issue. The fishing was no good although the stream was very beautiful to look at. It is a very quiet location though you do have to climb a winding up hill gravel road and open and close two gates in and out not fun if weather is bad!

Quiet, cozy, and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was just what my wife and I needed for a mountain get away! Far enough away that you could enjoy the sounds of nature without interruption! Yet still close enough to town if you wanted to go shopping or check out the local living. My wife and I enjoyed our stay and recommend it to anyone else who is thinking about a cabin rental in the moutains!

wonderful experience, great cabin and perfect water features and woods

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cabin, air was cool and stream flowing. We loved the seclusion with no neighbors to hear or see. Very accommodating mangers. Only thing that would have been some snow
