Property Description

We can't adequately describe how peaceful it is to sit on the deck of our little cabin and listen to the birds and the wind through the trees as you watch the sun set over the Smokey Mountains. With the Nantahala National Forest literally as our back yard, this new log cabin is the perfect secluded nature getaway! After getting one of the best night’s sleep you've ever had in our pillow top bed, you'll have the energy to go Fly Fishing or White Water Rafting on the Nantahala River, or Water Skiing on the glassy water of the highest elevation lake east of the Mississippi (Nantahala Lake is just 1 mile down the road from the cabin). Hikers love the easy access to the Appalachian and Bartram Trails - and the photos you see on this listing are from a secret Swimming Hole and Cliff Diving area off the Bartram Trail. Local activities also include mountain biking, kayaking, hunting, golfing, swimming, sight-seeing, and more. Renters are also welcome to use our canoe to explore Nantahala Lake! We've got some DVD’s at the cabin in case it rains.

The cabin is stocked with everything you'd have at your own kitchen including a propane grill on the deck. The quaint little towns of Andrews and Murphy are just a short drive away if you don’t want to cook your own meals or forgot your favorite fishing lure.

Our renters continually tell us how peaceful and therapeutic it is to stay at our cabin. They mention having great plans to visit touristic attractions and outdoor adventures - but are so lured by the peace and beauty of the surroundings of the cabin that they end up spending most the day kicked back on the deck enjoying the view or sitting at the fire pit fascinated by the stars that illuminate the night sky.

A Dream Home! Stayed On: 05/05/2018

This home was a dream! Our honeymoon would have not been the same without it! We will definitely be back!

*Hidden Gem* Stayed On: 04/10/2018
Written On 04/27/2018

Amazing hidden gem! The place was easy to find and the driveway wasn't that bad/well maintained. I enjoyed not having service and internet. The house had everything we needed. This was the perfect mountain getaway for peace and quiet with outstanding views. I just wish we stayed longer.

The perfect little Cabin! Stayed On: 03/02/2018
Written On 03/10/2018

First, YES! If you are even considering this place for a vacation/getaway, the answer should be YES. Second, WOW. The views, the trails, the perfect little cabin itself, the seclusion... the driveway (it's no joke!)... all of these things and more will absolutely "WOW" anyone who makes the great decision to book a stay here. Third (read: final), blessed. My boyfriend and I found ourselves in this cabin on spring break and I cannot stress how blessed we are to have had this experience, for Mike and family have created quite a delightful little getaway spot. Living and going to school in the busyness of the city (Atlanta), we hold places like this–that quickly turn into experiences and adventures–oh so dear and to sum up our stay, we are so blessed to have found this place. Now to the nitty gritty: • Yep, the nearest grocery store is a bit of a trek – plan ahead. • But the little kitchen and grill are perfect for cooking cozy meals, so again – plan ahead. • No cell service, no internet... it is such a relief, but can be quite an obstacle in navigation – download a map of the area on (Hidden by Airbnb) Maps to use "offline." • With no 4x4, we hiked the driveway every time – doable for sure, but arduous. Great place. Great communication. 10/10 would recommend. :)

Beautiful Views! Stayed On: 03/07/2018
Written On 03/18/2018

Mike was very responsive and communicative throughout the entire process. Prior to our trip, he sent us useful information about the area. The cabin is quaint with thoughtful items supplied to make things comfortable. He is not kidding about the drive up. This place is in the mountains so be aware of the windy roads and if you get motion sickness. As informed, there is no cell or wifi service. We ended up purchasing a hand radio in case of an emergency while up there. Luckily, there were no emergencies! The sun came out on our last couple days and we were greater able to appreciate the beautiful views during the day and stars at night.
