Sylva cabin description

Are you looking for a mountain getaway that offers privacy and tranquility, but is still close to all the action in the Smokies? Come stay a while at the Little Cove Cabin and find what you've been looking for!

Tucked away in a little cove in the woods, you can relax on the large front porch and watch the abundant wildlife around you or swing in the hammock in the front yard while listening to the babbling brook near by. Wild turkeys, raccoons, rabbits, foxes, coyotes, and even an occasional catamount and black bear have all been seen here!

Hike through the acres of woods that surround the cabin, or fish for rainbow and speckled trout in the bold creek just down the road. In the evenings, you can roast marshmallows at the fire pit where you can sometimes hear an old Barred Owl hooting in the trees nearby. Take a long stroll up the East Fork creek where 100+ year old farm houses, grazing horses and cattle, and rustic old barns and silos whisper the stories from a bye gone era.

Newly renovated, this romantic little A-Frame log cabin has all the modern comforts of home while maintaining the rustic nostalgia of a cozy little cabin in the woods! The cabin has a queen-sized bed in the downstairs bedroom and a second queen-sized bed in the loft bedroom. There is also a sleeper sofa in the living area that helps to accommodate up to 6 people. A fully equipped kitchen and separate laundry room have everything you will need for your stay. The cabin also has wireless internet access throughout and a flat screen HDTV with Directv programming. Outside, there is a Weber gas grill, dining and picnic tables and plenty of seating for enjoying meals outside. Also, our newly installed 6 person hot tub is perfect for a relaxing soak after a long day of fun in the mountains.

Conveniently located only 10 minutes from the charming town of historic Dillsboro and 15 minutes from Sylva, Franklin, and Western Carolina University. The towns of Cherokee and Waynesville are just a 30 minute or less drive away.

If your looking for a cozy place to relax, decompress, and get back to nature, you will find everything you're looking for in the Little Cove!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: My husband and I live and work in Sylva and are busy parents to our 4 small children. My husband works for the phone company and I am a potter that enjoys playing in the mud all day. We feel very blessed to be able to live and raise our children in these beautiful mountains.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sylva:
                  This property has been in my family for over 200 years. Growing up in Maryland, I have many fond childhood memories of my family's regular visits to the mountains and staying in the Little Cove. Playing in the woods and catching crawdads in the creek with my brother were some of my favorite things to do. Originally built in the 1970's, the aging Little Cove cabin was in need of some TLC. As a result, a few years ago, my husband and I began a 2 year 'rebuild'. The result was a brand new home with the nostalgic charm of an old mountain A-Frame cabin. We are proud of the hard-work and love we've poured into this cabin and hope that many families will now make special memories of their own in the Little Cove.
