Property Description

We began renting out this property to campers during the 2017 solar eclipse. In April of 2018 we completed the construction of this cabin - our second "tiny house" Log Cabin. The first - known as #Smawlie - is at the top of the mountain and requires a four wheel drive vehicle to access it. We saw the need to make this one more accessible. We invite you to rest around our fire pit at night under the star canopy cooking s'mores and telling stories about your daytime adventures. During the day go for a hike on the nearby Bartram & Appalachian trails, swim in the Nantahala lake, white water raft the Nantahala River, or go fishing. There's so much to explore - but when you're ready to call it for the day - you're going to love relaxing in this beautiful new cabin. In fact - you may not want to plan too much on your vacation - because once you sit on the deck and see that view - you'll want to just sit there and relax.

The space:

Our brand new cabin is equipped with the latest in appliances and comfortable home furnishings. We have memory foam mattresses, exotic sheets, and comfortable towels/linens. In addition to a completely stocked modern cabin, you will have access to several acres of flat, manicured lawn surrounded by mountains and a soothing mountain creek to dip your toes in. In 2017 we enjoyed a once in a lifetime view of the Solar Eclipse in the "Path of Totality." We have constructed a beautiful stone fire pit for cooking s'mores as you gaze upon the incredible night sky, full of stars!

We encourage you to hike and explore the area, but we do ask that you respect the other private driveways/cabins in the area, to include our other rental cabin up at the top of the mountain.

We have received such positive feedback from our other cabin and from our experience at the solar eclipse that we've decide to share this listing. If you have 4x4 and would prefer a mountain view rather than this valley and creek side listing, search for my other cabin - SMAWLIE - also available on this site.

Guest access:

We have a beautiful new parking area right next to the cabin for easy loading of groceries and luggage. A key box is at the front door - and upon reservation confirmation you'll be sent the code and directions.

Escape to a world of serenity and simplicity! Stayed On: 05/08/2018

Forget your cell phones, computers, and cable news people shouting at one another. Escape to a world of serenity and simplicity - with the touches of an adorable and perfectly appointed new mini-home in the mountains. My wife and I loved this peaceful weekend together. I think Lake Nantahala is arguably the most scenic in all of NC. Lastly, If you don't take time to build a bonfire and sit back to watch the stars... you'll have missed the icing on the cake.

The area we "camped" was perfect. Mikes directions to the location were spot on and very helpful. We really enjoyed our time here and would choose it again.

I camped with a group of 7 on Mike's property for the '17 Solar Eclipse and had a blast! Mike really went the extra mile in helping with planning and directions, always responding to questions quickly and sending tons of helpful information. It's a beautiful area- close to Lake Nantahala where we spent the days swimming and nights back on the property grilling out with guests from around the country. Mike's wife and sons took great care of everyone and tended to every concern (not an easy task considering there were 30-something rented sites on the property.) Looking forward to coming back to see the cabin!
