About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom Located On Dicks Creek

Simple Times Cabin is nestled over three thousand feet high in the Blue Ridge Mountains. It is located on Dicks Creek and backs up to the Natahala National Forest. The cabin is conveniently located to Cherokee, Tuskaskigee River, The Blue Ridge Parkway, Sylva, and the extraordinary Great Smokey Mountains National Park!

This unique cabin has high ceilings with windows built in the loft allowing you to gaze upon the moon and stars while laying in bed. The cabin features 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. One bedroom has a queen size bed and the other bedroom has two twin beds. There is a full kitchen for cooking, a living room, and a sun room. Watch fresh spring rain, leaves of autumn, or winter's first snow as you look out of the glass in the peaceful sun room. The living room has a Vermont Castings Woodstove in it. Outside, there is a wrap around deck, a swing, and easy access to the creek side picnic area by the way of steps. At night, open the bedroom windows and let the lull of the rushing creek put you to sleep or simply relax and catch your favorite TV show on DirecTV! Find your comfort zone with the newly installed central heating and A/C. You will find all the comforts of home without all the stress and responsibilities! So we hope you come and enjoy all the best that the Smokies have to offer!

Why Paige Kirkland chose Bryson City Area

Buying the Simple Times Cabin was a fulfillment of a 'dream' that we have had for years. We had been looking for a place in the mountains for several years. One day we happened to be looking at some property on Dicks Creek Road. Once we saw the property that we originally came to view, we knew that it wasn't for us, but like always we went on up the road to see what else we could find. When we came to the gravel road, we both got interested in what we were seeing. A gravel road, a roaring creek, and a beautiful forest-what more could we ask for. When we pulled over the bridge that leads you onto Choice Place we immediately got out. My husband said that the smile on my face said it all. The sound of the rushing creek and the beautiful woods that surrounded were absolutely amazing.

What makes this cabin unique

Dicks Creek runs in front of our cabin.

Our property backs up to the Nantahala National Forest.

Upon arrival we knew this is going to be the relaxing vacation we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice wooded mountain stay with the cool creek rambling down the mountain was perfect to sit and relax. Just large enough to sit on the rocks and cool you heels with the sound of the water flow made such a perfect surrounding. The lodging was everything needed. Just bring your food. Great sitting on the deck with a beverage and hearing the creek was exactly what we were looking for not to mention the lower level swing and nice green lawn and landscaping. I recommend staying rather a couple or family you will be pleased. The owners were very nice and accommodating to your needs to make your stay comfortable and pleasing so you are able to enjoy your time.

Loved our time here!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this cabin. Even though there were neighbors nearby, we still felt very secluded and private. My kids loved playing in the creek right below, and we had a great time just being at the cabin together, playing games, etc. Location was awesome - we spent a full day in Cherokee touring and fishing. Great time away!

One of our favorite cabins

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Simple Times, the cabin had all the furnishings to make you feel like you were at home. My kids loved the movies and games there and the creek was so relaxing. It was secluded but yet close to everything. We will definitely be returning to the cabin!
